Gilat Rises to Two-Week High on Spacenet Contract Extension

Sept. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. advanced to the highest level in more than two weeks after the developer of satellite-networking technology said its Spacenet Inc. unit had a network-services contract extended until 2018.

The shares rose 1.7 percent to 12.95 shekels, the highest level since Sept. 6, at the 4:30 p.m. close in Tel Aviv.

Spacenet will continue to provide VSAT network services to a major retailer with thousands of locations in the U.S., Gilat said in a statement to the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange today. The five-year extension brings the value of the contract to $27 million with a potential to increase to $35 million, the company said.
