Aerkomm Corrects its Global Partner Network
FREMONT, Calif., April 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Aerkomm Inc. (OTCQX: AKOM) ("Aerkomm" or the "Company") today announced that it is correcting its previously announced global network of connectivity partners to not include Global Eagle Entertainment's ("Global Eagle") network partner Malindo Air at this time. Aerkomm, through its wholly owned operating subsidiary, Aircom Pacific, Inc. ("Aircom"), is a development stage service provider of in-flight entertainment and connectivity solutions for the airline industry.
In a previously published release, Aircom announced that it had entered into a letter of intent with Global Eagle, a leading global provider of satellite-based connectivity and media, to provide connectivity solutions to Global Eagle's partner network, including to Malindo Air, a Malaysian-based regional airline as the initial targeted deployment.
Jeffrey Wun, CEO of Aerkomm said, "The collaboration with Global Eagle and its network partners has not been finalized. While we continue to work with Global Eagle in anticipation of providing services to its network partners, it was premature for us to include Malindo Air in the previously published release."
The previously reported MOUs are all nonbinding and as a result, they only express the desires and understandings between the parties and do not create any legally binding rights, obligations or contracts except for certain customary provisions such as exclusivity, costs and expenses, confidentiality and governing law. The Company cannot provide any assurances that any of these previously announced MOUs will lead to a definitive agreement.
