CAMBRIDGE, ON, April 6, 2017 - exactEarth Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX: XCT), a leading provider of Satellite AIS data services, announces an update on recent developments with its EV5 satellite. On February 3, 2017, communication was lost with the satellite and subsequent efforts to make contact were not successful. As a result, the Company filed a claim for the full insured value of the satellite, amounting to $3.5 million CAD, which has now been approved and paid to the Company.
This isolated satellite issue has not had, and is not expected to have, a material adverse effect on service levels. Additionally, in this regard, exactEarth is forecasting that the first four of its second-generation satellites will come into service by the end of next month to begin the roll-out of the 60-satellite exactView RT constellation being produced under the Company's agreement with the Harris Corporation.
