2 July, 2009 - KT Corporation and Asia Broadcast Satellite (ABS) announced today that they have signed the sale and purchase of the Koreasat-2 satellite. The closing of the sale will occur upon the issuance of the necessary U.S. governmental approvals.

The Koreasat-2 satellite is a Lockheed Martin G3000 spacecraft launched in January 1996. The satellite has a Ku-band payload with 16 x 36MHz FSS Ku-band transponders and 6 x 27MHz DBS Ku-band transponders. As a result of the transaction, the Koreasat-2 will be renamed as ABS-1A.

ABS plans to relocate ABS-1A (Koreasat-2) to the 75 degrees East Longitude orbital location to be co-located with ABS-1 until the launch of its recently announced expansion satellite, ABS-2, which is scheduled for launch early 2012. The ABS-1A (Koreasat-2) satellite has fuel for a minimum of 2 to 5 years of inclined orbit operations and will provide valuable high-powered Ku-band capacity for satellite telecommunications and broadcast services to ABS customers in the Middle East region.

ABS has contracted KT Corporation to provide the satellite operations and Telemetry, Tracking and Control (TT&C) services for the ABS-1A (Koreasat-2) satellite.

Mr. Sung Man Kim, Senior Executive Vice President of KT, said: Koreasat-2 was one of the two clone satellites which we launched in the mid 90s for the start of KTs satellite business in Korea. It has brought us a lot of value and served as a workhorse for our business. Through this transaction, we would like to build a strong business relationship with ABS for the future business opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region. KT will provide the TT&C services for Koreasat-2 and ABS will enjoy KTs safe and reliable services in controlling satellites.

Mr. Tom Choi, CEO of Asia Broadcast Satellite said: We are very pleased to work with KT Corporation and to conclude this transaction as the first step in building a long term strategic relationship with KT for the development of future opportunities together. The ABS-1A (Koreasat-2) satellite is a very powerful Ku-band satellite which will provide us with the additional Ku-band capacity that we need to meet the demands of our customers in the Middle East and will allow us to continue growing our revenues during the ABS-2 construction.
