Run Time:
16:00 - 17:15

Room Number:

Track:
Satellite Finance Forum




The satellite industry has experienced years of success and growth, but good fortune can be a double-edged sword, and the industry must now adjust to new expectations. After the immediate, high-return investments – both organic and acquisitive – have been done, new growth initiatives are either higher risk or lower return. Has pressure to grow shifted views of offensive versus defensive initiatives? Has it put an end to “capex holidays?” Is industry maturity itself a disruptor, forcing experiments that fall beyond the risk frontier? How do these issues affect the way corporate management goes about fund raising and considering potential merger and acquisition activity? CFOs from leading companies in the satellite industry join the stage to share their insights on what the future holds.
