LUXEMBOURG & RIO DE JANEIRO -- November 14, 2012

SES (Paris:SESG) (LuxX:SESG) today announced that Telespazio Brasil S.A. has
signed a long-term capacity agreement to boost corporate and government
networks across Brazil’s heartland and its oil-rich ocean waters.

Telespazio Brasil is using Ku-band capacity aboard the new SES-4 satellite to
enable the delivery of high-speed broadband and high-quality voice to
companies operating in remote inland communities. The leading telecom provider
is in the midst of implementing a VSAT network, driven in part by the
strategic coverage provided by one of SES’ most powerful spacecraft. SES-4 was
launched earlier this year and brings significant additional Ku-band capacity
to the Latin American markets.

“SES-4 gave to us opportunities to offer reliable and high quality services
for our corporate and government customers throughout Brazil. SES knows Latin
America and has built our regional needs into the coverage and capabilities of
its growing fleet,” said Marzio Laurenti, CEO of Telespazio Brasil. “Our new
partnership with SES shares a common vision and goal: to satisfy the region’s
growth and allow innovative companies and organizations to develop across the
country.”

“Leading communications service providers like Telespazio Brasil are
transforming the market, bringing high-speed broadband and top quality voice
offerings to distant locations. As a result, companies and key social agencies
are branching out and driving economic prosperity in these communities,” said
Dolores Martos, Vice President of Latin American and Caribbean Sales for SES.
“SES is committed to a strategic capacity blueprint designed to meet the
long-term demands of Latin America’s growing businesses and consumers.”

Telespazio Brasil has already initiated the delivery of telecom services over
the SES-4 satellite to corporate and government customers in Brazil.
