Inmarsat Looks To Launch IPO By Year's End

Monday, August 06, 2001
Global mobile satellite communications company Inmarsat said on Monday it expected to launch a public offering of its shares (IPO) by year-end to raise money to pay off debt or to make acquisitions.

"We are ready to go anytime soon. We have done all the preparation work for an IPO and we continue to monitor the market," Inmarsat Chief Executive Michael Storey said.

Storey expected the listing - most likely at The London Stock Exchange but maybe also on the New York Stock Exchange - to take place in the third or fourth quarter this year. The company has appointed brokers Morgan Stanley to lead the flotation.

Orginally Inmarsat aimed for an IPO in the first half of this year, but the global downturn on stock markets delayed the plans, Storey said.

Last month, British media estimated that Inmarsat, owned by Norway's Telenor, British Telecom, France Telecom and other global players, could be valued at around $2.8 billion.
