At the World Summit for Satellite Financing in Paris, RSCC lauded as the world’s best-growing regional operator of 2014
Yesterday, at the International Summit for Satellite Financing in Paris, awards were given for outstanding accomplishments and significant contribution to the development of satellite communications and broadcasting in the world. It is no accident that the prestigious award is likened with the Oscar in cinematography. This time, the jury of experts has declared FGUP RSCC the winner of the best regional operator award for its growth results in 2014.
The "Best development of a regional operator " Award is given on the basis of analyzing all regional satellite operators worldwide. The results are evaluated by a jury of reputable experts including analysts from Satellite Finance business magazine (UK), Space News newspaper (USA) and Euroconsult ( France).
"These actors, through their innovation, strategic leadership and performance have all had an exemplary impact on the satellite industry over the past year, said Pacôme Révillon, CEO of Euroconsult. “Euroconsult and our fellow jurists find it to be very gratifying to be able to honor their achievements during the World Satellite Business Week.”
At the 12th Awards for Excellence in Satellite Communications, RSCC CEO Yuri Prokhorov said: "For RSCC and for me personally, the award is a great honor. Over the last three years our company has been busy replenishing our satellite fleet. These years were full of happy and dramatic events. As a result, today we have five new satellites in service, on September 14, the Express-AM8 spacecraft was successfully launched, and at the end of the year yet another satellite is scheduled to be launched. We have worked a great deal with the terrestrial infrastructure. All this is done to provide our customers with the most advanced services. As a result, we have increased by 30% of our revenues from the provision of services and expanded by 5% our presence in the global market. We are creating new services in our home region. All across Russia’s vast territory, from Kaliningrad to Kamchatka, we have been implementing a project to ensure mass-scale broadband access to information networks using the Ka-band. We are also developing the infrastructure for DTH, and introducing marine applications. We are committed to our fundamental principle that relations with satellite operators and our customers should be built on mutually beneficial partnership. And that is what accounts for our good revenue dynamics in 2014.”
