Well it's almost halved, so we know their Sell was quite wise, given they'd probably doubled their money.

..Inmarsat reaches for the skies as blue-chips rocket higher
Satellite communications group Inmarsat (EUREX: ISAF.EX - news) was heading skywards today as the market welcomed news of a revival in the company’s core maritime business.
A 13pc increase in revenue from maritime during the first-half helped the FTSE 250 company put on 52.7 or 10.9pc to 537p, taking the shares far above this year’s low of 390.8p, which it touched in May.
Inmarsat, which also provides communications for humanitarian and military operations, ended the day as the biggest riser on the mid-cap index.
While the group’s second-quarter figures exceeded City estimates, Inmarsat had less success with its land-based services. Falling troop numbers in Afghanistan meant less demand for the company’s satellite communications, something which “remains a material headwind to our overall rate of growth in 2012” Inmarsat cautioned.
Nevertheless, chief executive Rupert Pearce was confident the company would meet expectations for the year. “We’ve surprised the market with the resilience of our business, I don’t think they expected us to show robust growth in the way we have,” said Mr Pearce, who took on the top job in January.

Hmmm.., not sure. The divi figure of 16.94¢ is correct, but I thought that the divi was paid in US$, but as the stock is issued in €'s, it may be that the ¢ are actually in that currency. My conversion was US$ / £.

London - 8th October 2012 - Inmarsat and Cisco have announced the creation of a unique long-term alliance that will enable Inmarsat to deliver advanced services, from applications to business collaboration and video to multimedia content over Inmarsat's new high-throughput satellite broadband network, Global Xpress (GX).
Cisco will provide Inmarsat with a state-of-the-art satellite applications service delivery platform and a high performance access network for Inmarsat's Global Xpress programme, the first global Ka-band (the satellite transmission frequency) network with mobile connectivity. Cisco will also develop a router for satellite network end-users that will utilise not only the Inmarsat GX capabilities but also the current BGAN global network.
Cisco will build and operate the network on a fully managed basis before transferring it to Inmarsat, and will use its key software stacks of Service Delivery Platform and Prime to enable advanced capabilities such as voice, video, cloud application services and high speed internet access.
This GX/BGAN integrated platform will allow Inmarsat and its partners to rapidly develop and remotely deploy innovative applications to this new device and will extend the reach of new services across the whole Inmarsat network. Inmarsat will become a Global Partner for Cisco and both companies will bring their combined service capabilities to Inmarsat's value added resellers around the globe.

Global mobile satellite communications services provider Inmarsat plc's total revenues - excluding LightSquared - rose by 5% to $322m in the three months to the end of September.
Wholesale maritime revenues rose by 17% and more than 2,100 FleetBroadband terminals were added during the quarter.
On a group basis, Inmarsat Global MSS revenue rose by 3% to $187m and Inmarsat Solutions revenue was up 4% at $206m.
Chief executive Rupert Pearce said, "The third quarter saw continued customer take-up of new services across our business sectors.
"In maritime, another very positive quarter was driven by the benefit of pricing initiatives earlier in the year and by the continuing strong take-up of FleetBroadband.
"Despite the headwinds we face from the on-going withdrawal from Afghanistan, results for our land mobile business improved with growth from IsatPhone Pro and positive underlying data growth due mainly to new BGAN subscribers."
