O3b Networks Funding and Purposes: Broadband by Satellite to the "Other 3 billion" (O3b)

This posting is a continuation of the previous LawPundit posting, here with an older press release that generally describes O3b Funding and Purposes at

O3b Networks raises total funding of US$1.2 billion - O3b Networks
__________

O3b Press Release, 29 November 2010

O3b Networks raises total funding of US$1.2 billion

O3b Networks Limited raises total funding of US$1.2 billion, to finance fully the construction and launch of its next generation global satellite constellation.

St. John, Jersey, Channel Islands, November 29th 2010:

O3b Networks announced today that it has secured its final funding round before service launch. O3b Networks is the developer of a new fiber-quality, satellite-based global internet backbone for Telecommunications Operators and Internet Service Providers serving the emerging markets. The company has raised a total of US$ 1.2 billion from a group of investors and banks. This will see the company through to the launch of its first satellites which will provide low-latency, fiber-quality internet connectivity between developing markets and the global internet infrastructure.

The total funding now comprises a US$510m Coface-backed Senior Debt Facility provided by HSBC, ING, CA-CIB and Dexia; a US$115m Senior Debt Facility and a US$145m Mezzanine Facility provided by HSBC Principal Investments, DBSA, AFDB, DEG, Proparco, FMO, IFC and EAIF*; and US$410m in equity financing, of which US$230m is new equity investment.

The additional equity is being provided by a group of existing shareholders that includes Google, North Bridge Venture Partners and Allen & Company, with SES, Liberty Global and HSBC Principal Investments taking the leading role. New investors include the Development Bank of Southern Africa, Sofina and Satya Capital. With this final round of funding, SES will become the largest minority shareholder of O3b Networks and will provide in-kind services, including commercial and engineering expertise.

John W. Dick Chairman of O3b Networks Limited said:

“We are pleased to have the new shareholders supporting this important mission. The amount of new funding and the quality of the investors reflects O3b Networks’ ability to balance important social goals while maintaining the required private sector returns. Furthermore, I believe that O3b represents a major step change in the economics of connectivity for the developing world. The backing of the world’s leaders in internet, banking, cable and satellite underlines O3b’s significant role in connecting all the world’s people.”

Mark Rigolle, Chief Executive of O3b Networks Limited said:

“I am delighted that we are now fully funded and working towards a firm launch date. This news means that we are now truly on the map – our customers can be assured that O3b is a reality. Ever since Greg Wyler founded O3b in 2008, the company has enjoyed the support of a growing number of investors, customers and partners. This has allowed us to secure our funding and to achieve our goal of reaching the billions who have so far been poorly served or completely cut off from the internet – the greatest business and information resource of our time. For me personally, I have been truly encouraged to see the strong relationships O3b has built, and I am now looking forward to the next few years up to launch when we will be able to see a lot of hard work come to fruition.”

O3b stands for the “Other 3 billion”, a reference to nearly half of the world’s population that is not adequately served with broadband internet access. Through partnerships with Telecommunications Operators and Internet Service Providers, O3b’s technology will provide the speed of fiber optics with the reach of satellite, serving billions of end users around the world.

Dr Hamadoun Touré, Secretary-General of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the UN agency for Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) said:

“I am delighted to welcome an innovative newcomer to the ICT market, especially one whose strategy offers the potential to extend connectivity to broadband networks to millions more people worldwide. O3b’s plan adds an exciting new piece to the puzzle through a low-cost solution that could help quickly bridge the emerging broadband divide separating rich and poor nations. The company’s plan to have services available by 2013 means this solution could also play a significant role in harnessing ICTs to help meet the UN Millennium Development Goals by the target date of 2015.”

O3b’s satellites will be placed in orbit 8,000 kilometers from the earth, four times closer to the planet than regular geostationary satellites, giving customers extremely low latency and providing access to approximately 70 per cent of the world’s population with fiber quality internet connectivity.
Thales Alenia Space is currently constructing O3b’s first eight medium earth orbit Ka-band satellites. The design of the system means that it will be possible to add many more satellites to the constellation, increasing capacity and transforming satellite communications for the developing world. O3b will begin commercial service during the first half of 2013 following the planned launch of the first eight satellites by Arianespace with a Soyuz launcher from French Guiana. ViaSat will provide the teleport and trunking product customer terminals.

About O3b Networks Ltd.

The O3b Networks system will combine global reach and the speed of a fiber-optic network. With investments and operational support from SES, Google, Liberty Global, HSBC Principal Investments, Northbridge Venture Partners, Allen & Company, Development Bank of Southern Africa, Sofina and Satya Capital, the O3b system will provide Telcos and ISPs with a low-cost, high-speed alternative to connect their 3G, WiMAX and fixed-line networks to the rest of the world.

Pre-Bowl 2013 FBS College Football Ratings and Rankings by SportPundit

Below are the 2013 FBS College Football Rankings after WEEK 15 of play, by SportPundit. These are our second-to-last rankings, with the final rankings to be posted after the completion of all the upcoming bowl games. We treat the Week 16 Army vs. Navy game as a bowl game for purposes of prediction.

Please read the indented material unless you are already familiar with it.
Caveat emptor (Buyer beware): We make this material available in good fun out of interest for the sport of college football. Please do not rely on our material to place bets or wagers of any kind. No one knows the exact outcome of a game or a season before it is played and that is what makes it so interesting. We disclaim any and all liability for the consequences of anyone relying in any way upon our postings, analysis, links or reasoning - for which we make no warranty of accuracy. May the best team win.

These ratings and rankings are based in part on our primary measure of "net average yards per play advantage" (NAYPPA), a specific predictive calculation which we were the first to implement, minus a calculation based on the schedule difficulty and a penalty for losses. Gauging schedule difficulty is always an approximation!

Yards per play stats are taken from cfbstats.com. In recent years, an average FBS team gained ca. 5.4 yards per play on offense and allowed ca. 5.4 yards per play on defense, a stat that holds fairly constant from year to year, but slightly affected by FCS scheduling.
 
Massey Ratings schedule difficulty ratings are used in part, but we have our own -- objective and subjective -- judgments and adjustments to handle schedule difficulty.
As a general rule of thumb for our rankings and ratings -- taking the NAYPPA, we subtract .01 times 2x the schedule difficulty up to 50, and .01 times 3x the schedule difficulty for 55 and up. We subtract .2 for every loss. The system is a bit unwieldy for calculation, but we have to account for strong teams beating up on weak ones.

As a measuring stick, note that the best (undefeated) college teams of all time had a NAYPPA of not greater than 3.0 for an entire season. Schedules have become easier recently, e.g. through FCS scheduling, and Boise State had a 3.5 "season NAYPPA" three years ago but lost a game and played an easier schedule than top teams. According to the yards-per-play standard, the 2012-2013 Alabama team would have been ranked among the best teams ever, had they not lost to Texas A&M. But they did lose.

See Best Teams Ever: (top three as examples below)
We repeat that in past recent years, an average FBS team gained ca. 5.4 yards per play on offense and allowed ca. 5.4 yards per play on defense, a statistic that has held fairly constant.
