Satellite communications company, Globalstar, has reported its results for the quarter ended June 30, 2001, which showed steady increases in both voice and data traffic, with a broadening base of new customers among key industry targets. Efforts to restructure the company's finances are continuing with the assistance of outside advisors. In the meantime, the company's marketing and sales efforts are showing growing acceptance of the service across industries and government organizations around the world.

Globalstar recorded a total of 5.4 million minutes of use (MOUs), including both mobile and fixed service, in the second quarter, representing a 33 percent increase in traffic over the previous quarter.
