The UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has launched a probe into the merger of Viasat and Inmarsat.
Viasat first announced its intention to acquire Inmarsat for $7.3 billion in November 2021. To no surprise, the proposal attracted plenty of attention.
The combined entities would operate a fleet of 19 satellites that are currently in service. An additional 10 spacecraft are under construction and planned for launch within the next three years.
