MCLEAN, Va., Nov 6, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- Iridium Communications Inc. (Nasdaq:IRDM) ("Iridium") today announced that it has amended its offer to exchange its remaining outstanding $7.00 warrants for Iridium common stock. In light of the fact that Iridium expects to file adjusted financial statements in the near future, Iridium has extended the exchange offer until midnight EST, at the end of the day on Friday, November 30, 2012, to allow additional time for warrant holders to tender their $7.00 warrants.

As previously announced, Iridium is offering holders of its $7.00 warrants one share of common stock for every six warrants tendered (equivalent to approximately 0.1667 shares for every warrant tendered).

The warrants currently trade under the symbol IRDMW on the NASDAQ Stock Market. Some of the warrants are included in Iridium's outstanding Units, which trade under the symbol IRDMU on the NASDAQ Stock Market. Warrant holders who have previously validly tendered and not withdrawn $7.00 warrants do not need to re-tender their warrants or take any other action in response to the extension of this tender offer. The terms and conditions of the tender offer, prior to the amendments described in this release, were set forth in Iridium's Offer Letter (the "Offer Letter") and Letter of Transmittal (the "Letter of Transmittal), each dated October 2, 2012, and the other related materials that Iridium distributed to holders of the $7.00 warrants, which were filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") as exhibits to Iridium's Schedule TO on October 2, 2012 (the "Original Tender Offer Materials").
