                                                              Notification of Pro Forma Transfer


                               ATTACHMENT 1
              NOTIFICATION OF PRO FORMA TRANSFER OF CONTROL
                  OF INTERNATIONAL SECTION 214 AUTHORITY

        Pursuant to Section 214 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C.
§ 214, and Section 63.24(f) of the Federal Communications Commission’s (“Commission” or
“FCC”) rules, 47 C.F.R. § 63.24(f), Intelsat S.A. notifies the Commission of the pro forma
transfer of control of an international Section 214 authorization held by Intelsat General
Communications LLC (“Intelsat General Communications”), an indirect wholly-owned
subsidiary of Intelsat S.A. The FCC has already consented to the transaction that is the subject
of this post-closing notice.1 The transaction was completed on May 2, 2019.

        Under the FCC’s rules, transfers of control that do not result in a change of the actual
controlling party are considered non-substantial or pro forma.2 Moreover, a “corporate
reorganization that involves no substantial change in the beneficial ownership of the corporation”
is presumptively considered to be non-substantial or pro forma.3 The corporate change described
herein involves only the insertion into the ownership chain of a new, wholly-owned subsidiary.
This corporate change constitutes a non-substantial (pro forma) transfer of control because
ultimate ownership and control of the international Section 214 authorization is exactly the same
before and after the corporate reorganization. This internal corporate reorganization serves the
public interest by creating operational and administrative efficiencies for Intelsat S.A. and its
subsidiaries.

Answer to Question 10 - Section 63.18(a)-(d):

        Because ultimate ownership and control of the international Section 214 authorization
will not change as a result of this transaction, Intelsat S.A. has been designated as both the
transferor and the transferee for the instant pro forma transfer notification.

Place of Formation: Intelsat S.A. is organized under the laws of Luxembourg. Intelsat General
Communications is a Delaware limited liability company.

International Section 214 Authority: Intelsat S.A. does not hold any international Section 214
authority but does indirectly control Intelsat General Communications which holds the
international Section 214 authorization that is the subject of this notification (IBFS File No. ITC-
MOD-20050329-00170 (global facilities-based service or global resale service)).

Answer to Question 11 - Section 63.18(h):

       The corporate reorganization does not affect the indirect foreign ownership in Intelsat’s
subsidiaries that was previously approved by the Commission.4

Answer to Question 13

        Intelsat hereby notifies the Commission of the pro forma transfer of control of the
international Section 214 authority held by Intelsat General Communications. As depicted in
Exhibit 2-A, prior to the corporate reorganization, Intelsat General Communications was owned
and controlled through various direct and indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries of Intelsat S.A.

        The non-substantial or pro forma transfer of control of the international Section 214
authority occurred due to a corporate reorganization involving the insertion into the ownership
chain of a new wholly-owned subsidiary, which does not change the ultimate ownership of
Intelsat General Communications. Specifically, between Intelsat Alliance LP and Intelsat US
LLC, Intelsat US Finance LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, is inserted into the
ownership chain. The post-consummation ownership structure is depicted in Exhibit 2-B.
