"We are immensely proud of the fact that Ovzon 3 is the first privately funded and developed Swedish geostationary communications satellite ever to be launched. The close teamwork with our partners Maxar and SpaceX has, despite delays and unfortunate circumstances in the wake of the pandemic, come to fruition, and we are grateful to all the people working relentlessly together to design, build, finalize, and launch the satellite in the last couple of years. Nevertheless, as always when working in space many risks still remain before the satellite has entered into service. I would also, sincerely, like to express my gratitude to our long-term shareholders who have supported us in every step of this journey.
