Hi there, and welcome to the year-to-date 2023 Outcomes SES S.A broadcasts monetary outcomes for the 9 and three months ended thirtieth September 2023. My title is Laura, and I shall be a coordinator for immediately’s occasion. Please notice, this name is being recorded. [Operator Instructions].
I’ll now hand you over to your host, Richard Whiteing, Head of Investor Relations, to start immediately’s convention. Thanks.
Thanks, Laura, and good morning, everybody. Thanks for becoming a member of this analyst and investor name for our year-to-date 2023 outcomes. We recognize you accommodating the change of date given the fabric settlement adjustment. This morning’s presentation was uploaded together with the press launch to the Buyers part at ses.com, for those who do not have already got it. And as all the time, please notice the disclaimer in the back of the doc. In a second, Ruy Pinto, CEO, will current the principle enterprise highlights, adopted by Sandeep Jalan, CFO, to cowl the financials in additional element. After some closing remarks from Ruy, we are going to take your questions.
And on that notice, let me hand over to Ruy.
Thanks, Richard. Good morning, everybody. Once more, our apologies for altering the date, however we wished to provide you an mPOWER replace that’s materials to our firm. And that justifies simply advancing it by a few days. So please beginning on Web page 3. Let me undergo the highlights of our announcement. I am actually happy that our year-to-date monetary efficiency has been good, stable and good. Our Networks enterprise has delivered development on the again of constructive outturns throughout every of the three sectors: Development Authorities, international within the U.S., Mobility and Fastened Knowledge Enterprise and cloud. Additionally, on our media video section, our income efficiency was in step with our expectations, and we’ve signed and are signing necessary long-term renewals throughout our beneficial TV neighborhoods. A few examples of Telefonica and Spain, Canal+ in Africa, and I will elaborate a little bit bit extra in the course of the name, but it surely’s a very good efficiency from our YTD crew.
Due to this fact, we’re on monitor to ship our full yr 2023 monetary outlook. And I’ve to say that it is actually pleasing to see that end result. I am additionally delighted to announce that following the FCC certification of our Part II USC debt clearing, we’ve now collected incentive cost of $3 billion gross pretax. It is a true milestone. We’ve got been engaged on it for fairly a while, as you all know. We allow the accelerated deployment of 5G service within the U.S. whereas preserving our key buyer companies and realizing substantial worth to the corporate. And having that milestone ticked off is known as a set within the cap of the crew that achieved it. We’re already placing a portion of those proceeds to work in a really disciplined manner. We introduced a share buyback program of as much as €150 million, and we intend to start out executing on that program with virtually speedy impact in November 2023. On the similar time, we’ve determined to name the hybrid bond of €550 million, according to our goal of decreasing leverage and reducing our general value of debt.
If we may please transfer to Web page 4, and I will soar straight to the mPOWER replace. And let me begin that on one hand, it is disappointing that we aren’t — we won’t be in service as early as we might have hoped. However clearly, we as an organization need to get this proper, and we work arduous and costly with our accomplice provider Boeing to make it possible for what we perceive the causes of the fed that we’ve noticed in house. And positive and extra necessary that we’ve a stable plan shifting ahead to deploy the mPOWER constellation. We’ve got made plenty of progress in the direction of figuring out the reason for the mPOWER module points that I’ve talked about again in August with 4 satellites in orbit, we collected fairly frankly, a very good quantity of knowledge, and we’re now able to not solely perceive what is going on, but in addition to have a technical repair for the issues. I additionally need to say that after this evaluation of an investigation over the previous couple of months, we decided that the preliminary satellites in August, we may have a major discount in anticipated operational lights beneath authorized capability. Nevertheless, one of many beauties of those extraordinarily versatile software program satellite tv for pc is that we are able to commerce that. In different phrases, this our mannequin signifies that we’ve been, for instance, pessimistic on the longevity of those satellites, we are able to commerce that by including capability to the constellation and vice versa. This flexibility permits us to be assured that we are able to begin our service in early Q2 2024.
Importantly, and I ought to point out that very clearly, we anticipate that with the mitigations in place our current O3b new constellation clients shall be supported in addition to the O3b mPOWER clients. With nonetheless room for additional clients and market development from early Q2 subsequent yr. We all the time prefer to preserve personally a little bit of margin, however this can be as early as April, if our assessments proceed to proceed as we deliberate. Nevertheless, it is a little bit bit later by 1 / 4 than what we deliberate earlier than. Due to this fact, we’ve to regulate the expectations that you simply all have on the cease of service of the consolidation. Moreover, we proceed to work, and we’re going to ship on the total life cycle situation the O3b mPOWER constellation and we’re going to be upgrading the remaining 5 satellites, 7 to 11 and ship an extra 2 satellites with Boeing starting not solely the treatment or the fixing of the design weak point that we recognized but in addition the development of two new mPOWER satellites that shall be delivered in file time.
Together with our settlement with Boeing, which we finalized yesterday, we’re assured that we’re going to accommodate this extra funding inside our current CapEx envelope from 2023 to 2027. And this can be a mixture of our materials settlement with Boeing, the place Boeing and SES are sharing the chance and probably insurance coverage proceeds, however that’s nonetheless being investigated relies on the efficiency of the satellites in orbit. Due to this fact, it is anticipated the influence of the O3b mPOWER delay of 1 quarter shall be within the order of mid-single-digit proportion decrease when it comes to 2024 income and adjusted EBITDA. Nevertheless, we aren’t giving up on that. And there are potential mitigations. We’re how can we finest optimize our in depth MEO and GEO fleet let me serve our clients and protect as a lot of our income. We’re preserving our backlog of dimension on necessary clients. And there are a variety of strategic packages that we’re engaged on. A few of them which will assist us mitigate the influence of this delay.
It is a stable plan. We’re assured on that plan, and it’ll allow our clients to already profit from these to the O3b mPOWER system from early subsequent yr from Q2 subsequent yr. And we are going to give attention to delivering a succesful system to the market, which might be the bedrock of the long-term success of our Networks enterprise. As one instance, and to alley, perhaps a number of the doable considerations, we’ve carried out a profitable demonstration of mPOWER S1 and S2 in India on the India Cell Congress with our accomplice, Liang GEO. They branded this the Geo Area fiber, and we’ve demonstrated gigabit per second capabilities for plenty of distant websites alongside GEO, together with an illustration to Prime Minister Modi, and that was simply final week. So this was precise satellites precise demonstrating the capabilities of the mPOWER constellation in orbit as we’ve deliberate.
So on that notice, let me transfer shortly to the important thing parts of our year-to-date efficiency on the following slide, please. Our income of €1.5 billion year-to-date is absolutely according to expectations. Within the final 9 months as effectively, we’ve signed a complete of €1.3 billion of contract renewals and new enterprise wins throughout the group. I could not be extra happy with that end result, given the truth that competitors is intense in all our sectors, actually on the community aspect. This end result contains €835 million of income on the three community verticals. A few notable wins are the Mexico CFE program utilizing SCF17, and it is a pleasure to have the ability to assist with digital inclusion in Mexico. We’ve got had a number of U.S. covenant awards, one that’s notable is the Air Power use program that we’ve received and there are different offers as effectively within the Aviation cruise clients part as effectively.
We additionally did determine a partnership with Starlink, which advantages our clients and will increase our market penetration within the crude sector, and we’re very happy with that. That is all complemented by €445 million backlog that we’ve secured in video, notably, some multiyear transponder renewals with Telefonica in Spain, the profitable extension of U.Okay. TV till the tip of the last decade, the renew of Canal+ in Africa, renewal of QVC, RTL, HD+ and plenty of others. Our media video crew has been very diligent and disciplined in attempting to resist market stress when it comes to value and even typically having the ability to make investments a few of our contracts, and that is an excellent end result. We’re additionally sustaining a robust repo prices and discretionary spend with adjusted EBITDA with an adjusted EBITDA of €792 million.
If we may transfer then to Web page 6, please. Third quarter income grew 8.6% year-on-year for networks, and it is actually good to see the rebound on Authorities, 15% year-on-year. It is a precedence sector for us the place we really feel that we’ve differentiated capabilities. This resulted in year-to-date outcomes being 5% increased than in 2020, together with development in all 3 verticals. You too can spot from the bullets that the sector the place we’ve extra intense competitors is mounted knowledge, however even there, we achieved a 2.3% year-on-year development. If we transfer on to Web page 7, please. On the video aspect, as I trailed simply earlier than, we’re monitoring rather well in opposition to forecast. We noticed a discount of two.5% year-on-year within the third quarter. And that contributed to the final 9 months underlying income closing of three.2% decrease versus 2022. These are secular traits that we’re all acquainted with. And we consider that we’re higher than the competitors, actually this yr. These traits proceed to be largely decrease volumes in mature markets with pricing secure to rising and contract length remaining very wholesome and robust and lengthy. So the small sector of sport occasions is one which we’re very happy with as a result of we’re seeing our development in there, together with a contract with FIFA that’s notable that we managed to get.
With that, I’ll hand over to our CFO, Sandeep, to provide extra particulars on the monetary suite.
Thanks, Ruy, and good morning, everybody. Beginning with the monetary highlights on Web page 9, and as Ruy already defined the temporary highlights. Reported income for the primary 9 months was 7% up year-on-year to €1.44 billion, together with the total contribution from acquisition of DRGs that we accomplished in August of final yr. On a like-for-like foundation, our income was barely increased in comparison with year-to-date September 2022. Adjusted EBITDA of €792 million was about 5% decrease, each on a reported foundation in addition to on a like-for-like foundation. This represented a margin of 5%. Adjusted web revenue was €180 million, and I’ll cowl this in a second. In additional particulars, the monetary outlook for 2023 is absolutely refined with income, adjusted EBITDA and CapEx, every being on monitor versus the outlook we gave in cloth on this yr.
Transferring now to the online revenue stroll on Web page 10. Adjusted EBITDA was €37 million decrease in comparison with year-to-date September final yr, and it was pushed by 4 predominant elements as proven within the desk. First, €6 million constructive from the scope impact of the DRG acquisition and foreign exchange; second, 5% development in networks of €37 million, together with the periodic income of €7 million that we’ve acknowledged in quarter 1 of this yr. The third element is video declined by €33 million, together with the periodic results. On an underlying foundation, radio was 3% decrease year-on-year, which represents an enchancment versus the 7% decline that we reported final yr for 2022, and we’re happy with this flattening trajectory. Lastly, recurring OpEx was increased by €47 million, as we had anticipated with our steering. Invoice adjusted EBITDA, decrease curiosity expense contributed positively to adjusted web revenue by €27 million versus the prior interval. The principle actions resulting in adjusted web revenue of €180 million had been nearly solely noncash, significantly increased depreciation linked to a CS1 billion service, extra amortization and decrease web foreign exchange acquire than the prior years. The occasion between adjusted web revenue and reported web revenue of €682 million is primarily defined by the C-band income-related results. We’re more than happy by a implausible execution of the C-band mission that full success and 100% proceeds have now been realized in money principally in October.
First efficient that we’ve acknowledged a major C-band web revenue of €2.7 billion, which is near $3 billion. This revenue recognition additionally implies that we’ve transformed an intangible asset on our steadiness sheet into actual money. And therefore, we’ve additionally recorded a noncash impairment cost of €1.55 billion on the intangible belongings triggered from this recognition of C-band revenue. We’ve got additionally acknowledged the tax payable on these proceeds of about €0.5 million, which after together with different constructive results from impairment results, et cetera, amounted to a web cost of €0.44 billion within the P&L.
Transferring on to Web page 11. We proceed to give attention to sustaining a robust and sector-leading steadiness sheet with investment-grade metrics, now additional bolstered by U.S. C-band proceeds absolutely realized in money by now. Adjusted web debt at 30 September was €3.7 billion. We’ve got not solely a low value of funding round 3%, but in addition a wholesome maturity profile of seven years with solely €400 million of senior debt for a due for maturity in the course of the subsequent couple of years. Leverage stood at 3.4x, primarily unchanged from the tip of final yr. Now for the reason that finish of September, as we reported, we’ve absolutely obtained the Part II C-band incentive cost of $3 million. We anticipate to pay the tax of €5 billion. And we are going to now begin the share buyback of €150 million that we had introduced in August. This buyback represents the utmost quantity approved by AGM decision that demonstrates our perception within the enterprise pedometers.
We additionally intend to train the decision on the €550 million hybrid bond on the upcoming maturity in January 2024, due to the C-band proceeds that we’ve realized. Hybrid Board continued to stay an integral a part of our capital construction, together with the 2026 hybrids that we’ve on our sheet. Moreover, we anticipate an extra $445 million of U.S. C-band value reimbursement. The method of reimbursement stays a lot decrease than our expectations. Nonetheless, we’ve up to now obtained over $0.9 million of reimbursements and proceed to interact with the clearing home to shut excellent claims. When adjusting for these things, this leaves a professional forma adjusted web debt of round €1.5 billion and web leverage of round 1.5x. We stay dedicated to utilizing the C-band proceeds in the very best curiosity of shareholders and anticipate to offer additional readability with the total yr leads to February. Within the meantime, the money is incomes curiosity revenue of greater than 5%.
With that, I’ll hand again to Ruy for the conclusions.
Thanks, Sandeep. I recognize that. So to sum up on Web page 13, please. I am clearly happy with our continued robust monetary efficiency, which implies we’re absolutely on monitor to realize our monetary targets for 2023. We now have the substantial C-band proceeds, which additional help what I am positive is a sector-leading monetary place and energy. We’re deploying, as introduced earlier than for €150 million share buyback program, and we’re exercising our choice to name the hybrid in step with our dedication to be monetary self-discipline and reducing our value of debt. As you heard from Sandeep, we anticipate to offer additional clarifications concerning the monetary coverage in finish of February subsequent yr, however that is an excellent drawback to have for those who ask me.
Whereas I recognize that immediately’s information on at mPOWER would require a little bit bit extra persistence from the market as we work to ship the constellation of full life sort capabilities and development potential. We will transfer ahead to beginning companies in Q2, early Q2 subsequent yr with the power to nonetheless help our current O3b mPOWER clients in addition to extra companies and market development. We’ve got a stable plan to handle the near-term operation shortcomings, deploy satellites that can have a design enchancment addressing the problems that we’ve been principally investigated and including 2 brand-new satellites, the constellation alongside our accomplice Boeing. This can be certain that SES will ship the extremely differentiated capabilities of O3b mPOWER and can ship long-term development and success to our networks enterprise. So we did the correct factor right here. I am actually happy that we’ve a stable plan going ahead although we aren’t precisely the place we wished to be when it comes to schedule.
With that, thanks very a lot, and we’re comfortable to take questions.
[Operator Instructions]. We’ll now take our first query from Aleksander, at Societe Generale.
I simply have two, the primary one could be, ought to buyers anticipate any additional capital allocation choices past the reimbursement of the hybrids that you simply simply introduced and the €150 million buyback that was beforehand introduced. Is there extra to return nonetheless on this entrance? Or are you cheerful together with your capital construction proper now? After which the follow-up is simply on the influence of the mPOWER delay, which of the three verticals in networks goes to be extra affected and which one much less, so we are able to mannequin this accurately.
So in your first query, clearly, the hybrid proceed to stay an combine a part of our capital construction, we’ve 200 in our steadiness sheet as we stand immediately with the C-band proceeds in our pocket and the present capital market situations. We’ve got the upcoming name on these hybrids in January 2025 that we intend to name. After all, these are choices that we’ll proceed to take, making an allowance for the most recent capital market situations the place these devices could also be fairly value are out there. Concerning additional readability on the monetary coverage, as I already spoke earlier, we’re at the moment assessing our plans and with our annual leads to February, we’ll be giving extra readability. The present share buyback is already on the most degree of €150 million, which is permitted by our Annual Basic Assembly. Clearly, the course of the monetary coverage stays a stable monetary coverage led a heavy give attention to funding in nice, secure to progressive dividend and disciplined investments — and clearly, with the C-band proceeds now in pocket and with our upcoming give attention to the following yr plans that we’re at the moment assessing. That is one thing we are going to have interaction with our board and supply extra readability as we go ahead on the finish of February.
Thanks, Sandeep. Additionally commenting in your second query. We consider that the differentiated excessive throughput and adaptability of mPower is stronger on authorities and mobility. We’re fairly assured that our development plans and ambitions on these 2 sectors are going to be minimally impacted by this delay. However I’d additionally say that on mounted knowledge deposit and cloud, the competitors — and the value erosion is intense. So each month that we ship, after all, there’s a little little bit of an influence. So for those who wished to place an order, I’d say, authorities and mobility are nonetheless a robust sector for us within the enterprise and cloud or mounted knowledge is a sector the place we’ve to pay extra consideration.
We’ll now transfer on to our subsequent query from Roshan, at Deutsche Financial institution.
I’ve received a number of on mPOWER, please. Firstly, the backlog this quarter, understandably, I assume, it did not transfer up materially versus earlier quarter. And also you do spotlight an enormous chunk is protected backlog. However is there a danger that on condition that we have had this extra delay and clients go to a number of the alternate options? Ruy talked about mobility and authorities being key verticals. We’ve got seen a number of rivals make a little bit of progress right here on that entrance, having signed capability contracts. Something you may say there could be helpful, please. On the CapEx envelope and the two incremental satellites, you talked about scope for insurance coverage payout. Have you ever received readability that you’ll obtain that? Or is that this one thing which you want to examine, please? Sticking with the CapEx, you highlighted that the lifetime of the prevailing satellites in orbit has been shortened. So I assume on this present evolution, we’re speaking about shorter CapEx cycles. However is there not a danger that it’s a must to begin getting the following state of affairs of mPOWER up and working given the shorter life frames, please. And secondly, simply lastly, simply on the operational entrance, authorities had a really robust efficiency this quarter. Something on that? Or are we now absolutely washed by means of the withdrawal of troops from earlier quarters that you simply talked about? Or may we anticipate this to be a brand new development going ahead in authorities?
Let me take the questions in flip. So on the backlog — the truth that we’re going to begin our service in early Q2 provides us a excessive degree of value that the backlog won’t be impacted. We nonetheless have margin — a little bit of margin in our buyer commitments and on our backlog that can give us — that provides us confidence that the backlog has not been impacted given the brand new in-service date and the launch of mPOWER S5 and S6, really, we’re on the cash sooner for our launch on the twelfth of November. So there’s margin there’s not one thing that’s worrying us. After all, it isn’t infinite margin, however there’s margin, and we’re assured that with the beginning of service in early Q2, probably in April that we aren’t going to have a problem with our protected backlog.
On the CapEx envelope, we’ve saved, after all, our insurance coverage absolutely within the loop on the investigation as we should always. However the settlement that we’ve with Boeing and the sharing of danger that we’ve with shopping for provides us confidence that we are able to deploy 2 extra satellites with out impacting our CapEx envelope and with out relying on insurance coverage proceeds. And that is an necessary level. That doesn’t imply that we aren’t going to discover the insurance coverage income, but it surely’s not a dependency on our CapEx envelope. Boeing and SES are working collectively on ensuring that this groundbreaking service goes up, it is necessary for each firms, and we labored extensively with them on methods to proceed with the mPOWER constellation.
By way of lifetime, I am unsure I captured the query utterly. However as I discussed in my opening remarks, we’ve flexibility with these satellites when it comes to deploying capability versus lifetime on the preliminary satellites. So we are able to adapt to the ramp-up of our clients. As you possibly can think about, I imply, we’re going to have a 12 months depart or take interval the place we shall be rigorously managing the constellation, and we’ve flexibility and margin to make it possible for our ramp-up is fulfilled and guarded for our clients. Lastly, on authorities, if I keep in mind the query, that authorities, they’ve their very own cycle when it comes to finances and execution. And typically it isn’t unusual so that you can have signed contracts which have delays resulting from milestone supply or mission execution, extra in authorities than in different sectors. So it isn’t one thing that worries us that typically it strikes to south as a result of it is assured drag and assured clients. So once more, probably not involved on that entrance.
Simply to enhance, you might be seeing an impact of this kind of strategy on the finish of the yr as you begin delivering and rushing up, sorry, for the addition there.
I am sorry, simply to test, you mentioned twelfth of November for satellites 5 and 6 to be launched they’re on web site now, I see…
They’re fairly snug in Cape Canabo, after all, it is no early than twelfth of November. We’re working intently with SpaceX. We’re the manifesto. We’ve got our second stage. It is all good to go. So we’ve an already agreed date. And as , in launches, we’ve a day, a backup base, you are topic to climate and to the mortgage issues, however we’re there.
And our final query comes from [indiscernible] at Barclays.
I’ve two questions. The primary one, we discuss with a mid-single-digit influence to income and EBITDA subsequent yr. Are you successfully offering a 2024 steering for present consensus numbers, like much less round 5%? Or after we get to February, may there a sequence of different issues that might change the numbers. And this mid-single-digit quantity is only one a part of that. The second can also be associated to that, that like after we say a mid-single-digit influence earlier than mitigation can we quantify the influence of any potential mitigations that you’re , even when we perceive that you simply can’t be assured on this proper now. And the ultimate query. General, are we principally interested by shedding a yr in your development plan? Or may the delays and capability points additionally influence your development in 2025 in comparison with what you may need talked earlier than. Thanks loads.
I feel Sandeep and I’ll take turns. I did not fairly get the primary query, however I feel I consider it is Sandeep. I feel it then between steering and the expectations.
So clearly, good query. In order we defined to you concerning the mPOWER state of affairs, this mid-single-digit % decrease income and EBITDA is to provide you a form of magnitude that we’re , all of the elements that Ruy defined earlier, these elements principally embody quick delayed begin of service from April early quarter 2 in comparison with 2023 and 2023 that we’re anticipating. Second, the required operational procedures, mitigation procedures that we’re setting up to improve new satellites and decrease ramp up. So these are the present impacts that we predict from the mPOWER associated results, this isn’t together with in potential mitigation results. We’re — as you possibly can think about, we’re at early phases. We’re assessing all of the potential mitigations, together with utilization of our personal in depth fleet of suites. MEO Basic in addition to GEO fleet and different mitigating actions. This isn’t a steering for 2024 or past. And this can be a course of that we’ve in early phases once more. We’re at the moment going by means of our enterprise plans and budgets, and that is a course of that we’ll undertake in February. In February, you possibly can anticipate a full yr steering, which can embody a complete evaluation of mPOWER state of affairs, the required mitigations and our full-fledged plan, together with our geo-capacity, that are a vital a part of our fleet. So this isn’t an annual steering. This goals to provide you a magnitude of the influence that we at the moment see and clear can inform you that is our expectation and vis-a-vis the place the consensus at the moment stands.
And if I’ll add on the second query, the third one, Sandeep captured it rather well. We’ve got a really numerous enterprise with geo-capacity, multi-orbit, neoclassic, video and media, some companies and so forth. We do consider that when we dig deep into the planning for 2024, we can mitigate a number of the influence of the mPOWER delay. However we’re being very upfront so that you’ve got full visibility of our considering, and we’ll come again, as Sandeep talked about in February with a completely fashioned view. There are, for instance, packages that we do not put into our marketing strategy as a result of they’re speculative or at an early stage. And if we are able to forecast what we may anticipate from these tasks in 2024, these numbers can change in the correct course.
And at last, when it comes to development for 2025, we absolutely anticipate that by the tip of ’24, This autumn and Q1 ’25, we may have extra capability coming on-line in mPOWER that won’t be restricted by these small and comprehensible operational shortcomings. In order that we’ll find a way then to maybe even have an upside on our development trajectory relying on market situations. So I am really extra optimistic about 2025 due to the plan that we’ve in place.
And we’ll take our closing query from Carl Murdock-Smith at Berenberg.
Two questions from me. Within the presentation, you say that the buyback will begin in November. Simply virtually, when is the primary day you can go into the market and purchase shares. So I take it it isn’t immediately. Following on from that, following on from query Roshan requested really. Simply I might marvel for those who may present a bit extra element on the chance sharing that you’ve got talked about with Boeing. Is that one thing new in relation to the size of delays that there have been over time? Or is it retrospective and one thing that is in contract upfront? And form of any element you possibly can present when it comes to the character of that danger sharing? And the way that works virtually could be nice.
So I will take the primary one. I will give the second for Ruy. In order , they’re popping out now the shut interval. We are going to begin a share buyback as quickly as doable. Now the cash is effectively, is within the financial institution. So you may anticipate that with in coming days. I imply we’re simply setting the mandate, et cetera. In order we exit of the associated fee paid beginning tomorrow. And we are going to begin to purchase again as quickly as doable.
And in your second query, so the chance sharing, we’ve reshaped our settlement with Boeing. Boeing and SES, each firms have a robust curiosity within the success of mPOWER. This new expertise that’s working in house. It is necessary for Boeing and for SES that, that new expertise works flawlessly in house and that we are able to deploy it with our clients. So having a pair goal with Boeing was important to a negotiation that concerned the reshaping of the contract of the settlement the place each firms took a component of danger within the supply and the capital expenditure and in including to the capabilities of the constellation. After all, I can’t disclose any particulars, however I can inform you that we’re collectively in sharing the chance and investing additional on mPOWER, each Boeing and SES.
There aren’t any additional questions within the queue. I’ll now hand it again to Richard for closing remarks. Thanks.
Thanks all. Thanks for becoming a member of. As we mentioned firstly, thanks changing the sooner timing as ever, myself and the IR crew stay obtainable with the early follow-up questions. Have an amazing day. And if we do not converse, have an exquisite Christmas. Thanks. Goodbye.
Thanks, women and gents. This concludes immediately’s name. Thanks to your participation. It’s possible you’ll now disconnect.
