It also comes at an exciting time for the global space industry, which is witnessing substantial investments across the value chain as new, innovative products and applications are brought to market.
“Since listing on the ADX in July 2021, Yahsat has been actively engaging with shareholders and investors, providing transparency and timely updates regarding our financial and operating performance, drivers and strategic plans. Yahsat offers a unique investment opportunity amongst global satellite operators, with a differentiating backlog of contracted future revenues in excess of 4 times annual revenue and an attractive dividend yield – one of the highest amongst companies listed in the UAE.
