Telecommunications pioneer Craig McCaw and Microsoft founder Bill Gates are Teledesic's two primary founding investors. Strategic investors also include Motorola, Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, The Boeing Company and The Abu Dhabi Investment Company. Teledesic is the first licensed satellite communications network that will enable affordable, worldwide access to advanced telecommunications services such as computer networking, broadband Internet access and interactive multimedia. Teledesic will deliver broadband data and value-added services over a global network optimized for the Internet Protocol. Teledesic (pronounced "tel-eh-DEH-sic") is based in Bellevue, a suburb of Seattle, Washington, with offices in Brussels, Belgium; London, United Kingdom; Madrid, Spain; Munich, Germany; Ottawa, Canada; Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; and Washington, D.C. # # # Editors' Note: Teledesic and Internet-in-the-Sky are registered service marks of Teledesic LLC. ---------- We urge you to read the Prospectus filed by ICO-Teledesic Global Limited and New ICO Global Communications Holdings with the Securities Exchange Commission as part of a Registration Statement on Form S-4 on September 20, 2000, because it contains important information.
