Satellite: Apstar 7B -> ChinaSat 12 (SupremeSAT-1)

APT Satellite in April 2010 has enteredinto a satellite procurement contract with satellite contractor Thales Alenia Space France for the manufacturing and delivering of APSTAR 7B Satellite, a Spacebus 4000 C2 Platform with 28 C-band and 23 Ku-band high power geostationary communications satellite.

At the same time, APT Satellite also entered into a launch service agreement with launch contractor China Great Wall Industry Corporation for the provision of launch and associated services of the APSTAR 7B Satellite on a CZ-3B/E launch vehicle at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center at Xichang in Sichuan Province. The initial launch period of APSTAR 7B Satellite is between 15 July 2012 and 15 October 2012 in the case the launch of APSTAR 7 Satellite is not successful.

If Apstar 7 is successfully placed into service, the Apstar 7B contract will be transferred to China Satcom as ZX 12 (ChinaSat 12), a state-owned satellite operator in Beijing, which also needs new capacity but not as quickly as APT.

Part of the satellite's payload has been leased to Sri Lanka and is co-branded as SupremeSat-1 until SupremeSat 2 is available.

ChinaSat 12 was launched in November, 2012 onboard a Chinese LM-3B/E launch vehicle.

RE: ChinaSat 12 (87.5E)
Update On Transactions In Respect Of APSTAR 7B Satellite

On 25 September 2012, APT (HK) entered into the Contract with CSCC in respect of the provision of project management services for the project for APSTAR 7B (ChinaSat 12) by APT (HK) to CSCC on terms and conditions stipulated in theContract.

CASC and its associates (including CSCC) are interested in an aggregate of approximately 57.14% equity interest in APT International, which in turn is a substantial shareholder of the Company holding approximately 51.67% of the issued share capital of the Company as at the date of this announcement. In addition to the shareholding held by APT International, CASC and its associates (including a subsidiary of CSCC) are also interested in an aggregate of another approximately 10.42% of the issued share capital of the Company as at the date of this announcement. CSCC, being a subsidiary of CASC, is therefore a connected person of the Company. Accordingly, the Contract and the transactions contemplated thereunder constitute a connected transaction of the Company under Chapter 14A of the ListingRules.

As the applicable percentage ratios in respect of the transactions contemplated under the Contract are less than 25% and the total consideration is less than HK$10,000,000, the transactions contemplated under the Contract are subject to the reporting and announcement requirements but are exempted from independent shareholders approval requirements under Chapter 14A of the Listing Rules.

REASONS FOR AND BENEFITS OF ENTERING INTO THE CONNECTED TRANSACTION

APSTAR 7B (ChinaSat 12) was originally planned as the back-up satellite of APSTAR7. Since APSTAR 7 was successfully launched on 31 March 2012, pursuant to the cooperation agreement, APT (HK) and CSCC entered into an assignment in respect of APSTAR 7B (ChinaSat 12). The entering into of the Contract will allow APT (HK) not only completely recoup the investment in APSTAR 7B (ChinaSat 12) by the assignment, but also plough back the project management cost which APT (HK) has already incurred before the assignment of APSTAR 7B (ChinaSat 12) to CSCC.

The successful implementation and launch of APSTAR 7B (ChinaSat 12) will provide additional transponder capacities for APT (HK) under the transponder and communication services master agreement entered into between APT (HK) and CSCC on 3 November 2011 for the three year period from 1 January 2012 to 31 December 2014, which constitutes continuing connected transactions and was approved by the shareholders in a special general meeting on 12 December 2011. Such additional transponder capacities will be important to fuel the business growth of the Company. It is therefore in the benefit of the Company to continue to provide such project management services to CSCC even after the assignment so as to ensure APSTAR 7B (ChinaSat 12) to be implemented and launched successfully as planned.

APSTAR 7B (ChinaSat 12) a Spacebus 4000 C2 Platform having 28 C-band transponders and 23 Ku-band transponders high power geostationary communications satellite.

RE: ChinaSat 12 (87.5E)
Sri Lankas First Partly Owned Satellite Set For Launch

October 17, 2012, Sri Lanka will have its first partly owned satellite in the space soon. A private company, SupremeSAT, has taken every possible step to make this a reality and is expected to deploy the first Sri Lankan satellite at 87.5E, in the Geo-Stationary orbit, on November 22 from Xi-Chang in China.

Addressing the media yesterday at the WTC in Colombo, to break the news of this novel joint venture, Chairman of the SupremeSAT (Pvt) Ltd., R. M. Manivannan said, "It will take place around 9.30 p.m. local time and in China at Midnight the same day. The satellite will be positioned in seven minutes just above the country over the Indian Ocean but it would start beaming into the region by early June 2013 for commercial purposes."

He said that the project was a joint venture with two Chinese state-owned companies, China Greatwall Industry Corporation and Sino Satellite Comunications Company Ltd.

In addition, he said that Sri Lanka would have their fully owned satellite in 2015 at a cost of US $ 320 million.

Asked how durable the satellite was, he said it would be for 15 years and by the time its function ended, they would deploy another satellite with the latest technology to the same location.

The Sri Lankan company, which took a bold step in providing the facility and technology for Sri Lankans, had invested US$ 100 million in the entire project.

Sri Lanka will be the 45th country to own a satellite in the world and also, the third country in the region, because India and Pakistan already have their own.

He said that the project was fully invested by them and that they could help make Sri Lanka a Knowledge Hub by providing satellite facility to potential clients at a cheap price and they could be proud as the country would have its own.

He also said that this was a joint project and therefore flags of two countries would be fastened to the satellite and the public would be informed from time to time with the pictures describing its full development even in space.

RE: ChinaSat 12 (87.5E)
Lanka Enters Space Era With Satellite Launch

18 October 2012 - November 22, would be a red-letter day for Sri Lanka when the country moves to a new era by launching its first satellite. As exclusively highlighted by Daily News Business, this historic venture would be initiated by The SupremeSAT headed by R M Manivannan. The launch would also make Sri Lanka the 45th nation to own a satellite and make SupremeSAT the first private sector company in the region to own a satellite.

Manivannan said that the agreement in this regard was signed last Tuesday and the satellite would be launched from Beijing at 9.30 pm and would be positioned over Sri Lanka in just 7 minutes. The total investment for the project is estimated at US $ 360 million which also included the construction of a satellite Content Management Station and a Space Academy in Kandy which is now in progress.

He said that the funds would be raised by his company and they hope to earn profits after eight years. The company would generate income through providing media space not only to local companies but other countries in the region as well.

He disclosed that they were originally planning to launch the satellite in 2015 but were able to advance it to November, mainly due the favorable investment climate in Sri Lanka.

"I am very glad that this venture coincides with the vision of the President to make Sri Lanka a Knowledge Hub and must thank the government for fully supporting this project," he said. He also emphasizes that no government funding was used for this venture.

The company has entered into an exclusive partnership agreement with China's state owned China Great Wall Industry Corporation (CGWIC) for the design, manufacturing and launching of the satellite and also to secure marketing facilities of many other satellites owned and operated by CGWIC and the China Satellites Communications Corporation.

He said that the satellite currently stationed in Beijing would carry flags of both Sri Lanka and China and his next objective is to build a satellite which will only carry the Sri Lankan flag.

The space industry is a very important inter-growth part, of a country's industrial system. Sri Lanka is at a very critical and historical stage with regard to the development of the national economy and strengthening the civil society.

The proposed Space Academy in Kandy will consist of a state-of- the-art Satellite Ground Station which will provide on the job training to Sri Lankans who will start to control the already co-branded satellites of SupremeSAT/Chinasatcom.

RE: ChinaSat 12 (87.5E)
Indika, can you explain this? If this satellite's destination is 87.5 E, why is it transmitting at this location? So far what i have seen is once a satellite reaches its assigned location it beings the service. Thanks.

Thanks for the information, Mr. Indika. How can I get all the channel details of this Chinasat 51.5E? Yesterday I checked in lyngsat and flysat sites. But nothing about this sat.

RE: ChinaSat 12 (87.5E)
Please, be patient my friends...
ChinaSat 12 (SupremeSAT-1) has stopped by at 51.5 East, but only temporary, chinese sources are saying that it will continue to move to 87.5 East to replace ChinaSat 5A satellite...
