Merger of Intelsat and OneWeb
« on: 02/28/2017 03:37 PM »
This conditional merger looks like a huge deal:

Interesting to note also the extent of Intelsat's debt (15B$).


Peter de Sielding also noting in Twitter the merger won't automatically extend the rights of landing in 200 countries that Intelsat has to OneWeb too.

Kind of reminds me of the AOL - Time Warner merger.
