NewSat Limited (ASX: NWT), Australia’s satellite company, is pleased to announce that over the 2012 financial year, the Monthly Recurring Revenue of the teleport business has increased by 24% to US$3.1 million per month. The US$600,000 increase in Monthly Recurring Revenue is due to a significant number of new teleport customer contracts signed over the 2012 financial year. The 306 new teleport contracts signed are worth US$12.68 million of additional revenue and are incremental to the Company’s existing contract base.
The US$12.68 million of new teleport business contracts announced during the 12 month period include:
In commenting on the FY2012 new teleport sales, Adrian Ballintine, NewSat Founder and CEO said:
“Our internationally acclaimed teleport business continues its stellar global growth, as our blue chip customers continue to demand high quality communications to support their mission critical business activities. The US$12.68 million in new teleport contracts is incremental to our existing revenue base and has increased our monthly recurring revenues by 24% to US$3.1 million per month.”
“In addition to the commendable sales result for FY2012, the NewSat teleports were rated Top 3 in the world at the World Teleport Awards in March 2012, which reinforces their status as the best teleports in the Australasia region. FY2013 exhibits all the signs of being another exciting growth year for NewSat, as our teleport sales pipeline remains very solid. This continued growth potential is being driven by ongoing demand from Australasia, South Asia and the Middle East, and last week’s signing of the Wheatstone Project for a multi-million dollar contract was a great kick start to the current financial year.”
NewSat Limited (ASX: NWT), Australia’s satellite company, announces today the signing of a two year contract with its partner BAE Systems. The contract is worth US$8.59 million and is to provide hardware and satellite communications services through NewSat’s Perth based teleport to the Wheatstone Project.

The solution has been designed to withstand the cyclonic conditions unique to the region. This new contract expands NewSat’s satellite communication services to the entire Wheatstone Project, both offshore and onshore, to support the project’s construction, operations, administration and staff welfare.
The Wheatstone Project is expected to operate for approximately 40 years and is located in the remote region of Ashburton North, Western Australia, which is best serviced by enterprise-grade satellite communications.
In commenting on the new teleport contract, Adrian Ballintine, NewSat Founder and CEO said:
“The Wheatstone Project is a massive LNG project. We have been working with a range of our partners ontheir tenders and are very happy BAE Systems won the bid.

In partnership with BAE Systems, NewSat will deliver enterprise-grade satellite communications to yet another great resource project off the north-west coast of Australia.”
“This new US$8.59 million deal is our largest single teleport contract to date and kick starts our FY2013 year. Our core teleport business continues to grow as we secure large oil, gas and mining contracts around the world. With a promising teleport sales pipeline, NewSat is in great shape.
