If you are resident or located in a country that renders the accessing of this area of the website or parts thereof illegal, whether or not subject to making certain notifications or taking other action, you should not view this area of the website.
It is your responsibility to satisfy yourself as to the full observance of any relevant laws and regulatory requirements. If you are in any doubt, you should not continue to seek to access this area of the website.

Forward Looking Statements
This area of the website contains “forward-looking statements”. These statements are based on the current expectations of the management of EchoStar and are naturally subject to uncertainty and changes in circumstances. The forward-looking statements contained in this area of the website include statements relating to the expected effects of the Possible Offer on EchoStar, the expected timing and scope of the Possible Offer, and other statements other than historical facts.
Forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements typically containing words such as “intend”, “expect”, “anticipate”, “target”, “estimate”, “plan”, “strategy”, “will”, “should”, “may”, “goal”, “seek”, “believe”, “predict”, “continue”, “future”, “could”, “can” and words of similar import. These forward looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that will occur in the future. There are a number of factors that could cause actual results and developments to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to, the satisfaction of the conditions to the Possible Offer and EchoStar’s ability successfully to integrate the operations and employees of Inmarsat, as well as additional factors, such as changes in economic conditions, changes in the level of capital investment, success of business and operating initiatives and restructuring objectives, costs associated with research and development, changes in the prospects for products in the research and development pipeline of Inmarsat and/or EchoStar, customers’ strategies and stability, changes in the regulatory environment, fluctuations of interest and exchange rates, the outcome of litigation, government actions and natural phenomena such as floods, earthquakes and hurricanes. Other unknown or unpredictable factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. EchoStar does not undertake any obligation to update publicly or revise forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except to the extent legally required.
Given these risks and uncertainties, investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results. Neither EchoStar nor any of its affiliated companies undertakes any obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except to the extent legally required.
Notice to US investors
If an offer is to be made, the transaction may be implemented by way of a contractual takeover offer under English law. If so, any securities to be issued by EchoStar under the transaction to Inmarsat shareholders will be registered under the US Securities Act of 1933, as amended, absent an applicable exemption from registration and the transaction will be done in compliance with the applicable rules under the US Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), including any applicable exemptions provided under Rule 14d-1(d) thereunder.
In accordance with normal UK practice and pursuant to Rule 14e-5(b) of the Exchange Act, if applicable, EchoStar or its nominees, or its brokers (acting as agents), may from time to time have made or make certain purchases of, or arrangements to purchase, Inmarsat shares or other securities outside of the United States, other than pursuant to the Possible Offer, before the Possible Offer has been consummated. These purchases may have occurred or may occur either in the open market at prevailing prices or in private transactions at negotiated prices. Any information about such purchases will be disclosed as required in the UK, will be reported to a Regulatory Information Service of the Financial Conduct Authority and will be available on the London Stock Exchange website, www.londonstockexchange.com, all as and to the extent required under UK law.
