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.

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.
