Ovzon is supplier of mobile end-to-end satellite services. Through its self-developed terminal, the company’s patent-protected offering combines great mobility with high bandwidth. The company is looking to launch a proprietary satellite. Besides more than doubling Ovzon’s saleable capacity, having its own satellite would expand the total offering.
The market for mobile satellite communication services is large and growing, and many governments and media organisations have already announced that they will continue to invest in the coming years. Ovzon offers a unique solution for customers in need of a mobile satellite terminal with high bandwidth. That combination has not existed historically, and the company might capture significant market share.
Ovzon relies on satellite capacity from third parties to provide its communication services. Satellites are subject to operational risks while in orbit, many of which cannot be foreseen and may not be included in Ovzon's insurance policies. Almost all of the company’s sales are generated via IGC (a subsidiary to the operator Intelsat) and the sales agreement with IGC is subject to annual renewal. Furthermore, the company generates almost all of its revenues in USD, and reports in SEK.
