In partnership with Iridium, Beam developed the original Iridium GO!® that was launched globally in 2014.

Based on initial demand and the strong historic sales that have been achieved for the Iridium GO!, Beam anticipates orders for the Iridium GO! exec to exceed the initial A$20 million minimum commitment from Iridium.  The Iridium GO! exec will be positioned as a premium solution in the Iridium GO! product range while the original Iridium GO! will remain a key part of Iridium’s product suite and will continue to be offered alongside the Iridium GO! exec.

Beam Communications Managing Director, Michael Capocchi, commented:

“We are pleased to have Iridium select Beam Communications as the OEM partner once again, this time for the Iridium GO! exec. With the Company achieving strong historic sales for the Iridium GO! product, we are very excited about the opportunities this product brings to the broader target market.

We are very confident the minimum commitment will be exceeded well within the initial 5-year term based on current indicative demand.”

This announcement has been approved by the Board of Directors.
