On September 27, 2012, ViaSat, Inc. issued a press release pursuant to Rule 135c under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), regarding the pricing of an offering of $300 million in aggregate principal amount of additional 6.875% Senior Notes due 2020 (the “Notes”) to be issued through a private placement to qualified institutional buyers in the United States pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act and outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes are an additional issuance of, and will be treated as a single class with, the $275 million outstanding aggregate principal amount of ViaSat’s 6.875% Senior Notes due 2020. The Notes will have an interest rate of 6.875% per annum and will be issued at a price equal to 103.50% of their face value.
