The PIK Notes Redemption is conditioned on the completion of one or more debt financings on or prior to the Redemption Date by Intelsat Luxembourg on terms satisfactory to Intelsat Luxembourg providing funds sufficient for Intelsat Luxembourg to pay the aggregate redemption payment for the portion of the outstanding 2017 PIK Notes to be redeemed on the Redemption Date.
