Earth and geospatial imagery providers DigitalGlobe and GeoEye combine


LONGMONT, Colo., 6 Feb. 2013. DigitalGlobe Inc. (NYSE:DGI) and GeoEye Inc. (NASDAQ:GEOY) have combined. The combined company, with a market capitalization of $2.1 billion, will provide earth imagery and geospatial analysis to myriad customers.

"With a stronger financial profile, more robust suite of services, and among the world's most advanced geospatial production and analysis capabilities, we will be even better positioned to meet customers' needs and create value for shareowners," says Jeffrey R. Tarr, President and Chief Executive Officer of DigitalGlobe. "Together, we are poised to achieve our vision of being the leading source of information about our changing planet."

DigitalGlobe can now provide a wider array of earth imagery and geospatial analysis to help customers solve their most complex problems, says a spokesperson.

Together, says a representative, the combined company will have:

An expanded global presence with a larger and more diverse revenue base;

A larger constellation with optimized orbits, coordinated scheduling and improved revisit rates;

Better integrated imagery collection, processing and analytics capabilities; and

A strengthened balance sheet and financial profile with more than an expected $1.5 billion in net present value of operating expense and capital synergies, with approximately one-third of those synergy savings related to operating expense and the balance from capital savings.
