Intelsat Announces Pricing of Senior Notes

LUXEMBOURG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$I #earnings–Intelsat S.A. (NYSE: I) (“Intelsat”) today
announced that its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, Intelsat Jackson
Holdings S.A. (“Intelsat Jackson”), has
priced a private offering of an additional $400 million aggregate
principal amount of its 9.750% senior notes due 2025 (the “Notes”),
which represents an increase of $100 million from the previously
announced $300 million offering, to be sold at an issue price of
100.000% of par plus accrued and unpaid interest from January 15, 2019.

Intelsat Jackson’s obligations under the Notes will be guaranteed by
certain of Intelsat Jackson’s subsidiaries that guarantee its
obligations under its senior secured credit facilities. In addition,
Intelsat, Intelsat Investment Holdings S.à r.l., Intelsat Holdings S.A.,
Intelsat Investments S.A., Intelsat (Luxembourg) S.A. and Intelsat
Connect Finance S.A., which are direct or indirect parent companies of
Intelsat Jackson, will guarantee the Notes as of their issue date.

The net proceeds from the sale of the Notes are expected to be used by
Intelsat Jackson for working capital and general corporate purposes,
which may include, among other things, the funding of capital
expenditures, future strategic transactions and repayment of our
existing indebtedness.

The offering of the Notes is expected to close on June 11, 2019, subject
to customary closing conditions.

The Notes will be offered and sold to qualified institutional buyers in
accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended
(the “Securities Act”), and to persons
outside the United States in accordance with Regulation S under the
Securities Act and applicable exemptions from registration, prospectus
or like requirements under the laws and regulations of the relevant
jurisdictions outside the United States. The Notes will not be
registered under the Securities Act and, unless so registered, may not
be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption
from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements
of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The Notes
will also not be registered in any jurisdiction outside of the United
States and no action or steps will be taken to permit the offer of the
Notes in any such jurisdiction where any registration or other action or
steps would be required to permit an offer of the Notes.

The Notes may therefore not be offered or sold in any such jurisdiction
except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject
to, the relevant requirements of laws and regulations of such
jurisdictions.

No prospectus as required by the Directive 2003/71/EC (and the
implementing laws and regulations in the relevant member states) has
been filed with respect to the Notes and therefore no offers of Notes
may be made in any Member States of the European Economic Area unless
made pursuant to an exemption under the Directive 2003/71/EC (and the
implementing laws and regulations in the relevant Member States).

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the
solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes or any other securities of
Intelsat, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of the
Notes in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or
sale would be unlawful.
