Intelsat, Ltd. today announced that it has
obtained credit facilities for a total of $1 billion, from a syndicate of
lenders arranged by Salomon Smith Barney. The financings represent
significant initial funding for Intelsat, the first since its privatization
in July 2001.

The credit arrangements include a 364-day facility in the amount of $500
million and a three-year facility in the same amount. The facilities are
intended to provide liquidity support for general corporate purposes and to
support Intelsat, Ltd.’s commercial paper program.

Joseph Corbett, Intelsat, Ltd.’s Executive Vice President and CFO, stated,
"The favorable terms of these credit facilities represent a continued
recognition of our business, including our high-quality, global satellite
network, valued orbital slots, long-standing customer relationships and
technical leadership."

These facilities replace an expiring $1 billion, 364-day credit facility
that Intelsat obtained in March 2001.
