Satellite communications company NewSat (ASX:NWT) has moved to reassure investors over the future of the company with the issuing of a chairman’s address on the company’s financial progress.

“NewSat is well placed to leverage off its infrastructure, with our teleports having a footprint of 75% of the worlds’ surface to continue to grow the business in this robust global market,” the address reads.

“Our recent announcement regarding half year financial results for the period ending 31 December 2009 further signify we are owners of a unique-to-Australia cashflow positive, monthly recurring revenue business that is on track for continued strong annual financial growth.”

Green said the company had a number of significant contracts under negotiation and had signed more than 200 “high grade” corporate contracts signed during the first 6 months of the financial year.

“We are confident of the continued success of NewSat and a financial performance to reflect this,” the address reads.
