Mr. Spengler continued, “Our goals in 2018 capitalize upon the better performance and economics associated with the services delivered by our high-throughput satellite Intelsat EpicNGfleet. Our position will be further enhanced by completion of the Intelsat EpicNG global deployment, which is planned to occur later this year with the launch of the Asia Pacific-oriented Horizons 3e satellite. We developed our 2018 initiatives to drive stability in our business sectors while accelerating the introduction of new end-to-end service capabilities. As we continue to innovate in technologies that support entry to new segments, we will expand the opportunity set for our Company and create new revenue streams to support growth.”
