January 22, 2024 – Comtech Telecommunications Corp. announced a $45.0 million investment by current shareholders White Hat Capital Partners LP (“White Hat”), an investment firm focused on sustainable value creation in technology companies serving mission-critical applications, and funds affiliated with Magnetar, a leading alternative investment manager with over $14 billion of assets under management. In connection with the investment, the Company exchanged all outstanding shares of Comtech’s existing convertible preferred stock for a new series of convertible preferred stock. This strategic investment enhances Comtech’s financial flexibility and strengthens the Company’s ability to capitalize on its recent large contract awards and growing customer demand for its satellite communications technologies and next-generation terrestrial and wireless solutions. Comtech expects to apply the proceeds of this investment across a range of initiatives which not only support near-term working capital needs and general corporate purposes, including the repayment of certain outstanding indebtedness, but also its growth prospects. The issuance of the new series of convertible preferred stock demonstrates the continued commitment of White Hat and Magnetar, and is an important step towards the completion of the Company’s previously announced process to refinance its existing Credit Facility and further increase its financial and operational strength.
