ABS began its journey with the acquisition of the Lockheed Martin LMI-1 satellite, which today has been renamed to ABS-6. This was followed quickly by the acquisition of two further satellites: Agila-2 in 2009 (formerly ABS-3) and Koreasat-2 (formerly ABS-1A).
The company saw further growth after its acquisition in 2010 by Permira Funds which was followed in the same year by the acquisition of Koreasat-3 (now ABS-7).
Since 2010, the company has continued its impressive growth trajectory with the launch of ABS-2 and acquisition of MBSat-1 (now ABS-4/Mobisat) in 2014. Two further satellite launches then ensued in 2015 with the ABS-3A and ABS-2A satellites in 2016, respectively.
