Year In Review... Europe Media Port (EMP)

emp_sm1210_l EMP (Europe Media Port) is a global service provider for the distribution of video, Internet services and data connectivity solutions to the media, ISP, and government markets, via the Nemea teleport located in Greece.

EMP delivers the highest quality transmissions to broadcasters, teleports, satellite operators, enterprises, ISP providers, PTP data carriers, and governments. With a strategic geographic position, EMP offers high quality access to all satellites in the 45 degrees West to 90 degrees East range, covering Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the Americas and Asia.

emp_sm1210_g1 Europe Media Port is partnering directly with satellite operators and teleport facilities around the world to provide diverse end-to-end solutions to the satellite service market. We are delighted to have been selected by the World Teleport Association (WTA) as the “fastest of the fast” for the second year in a row, with an impressive 127 percent revenue growth in our most recent fiscal years. The “Fast Twenty of 2010” award, together with the recently announced deals with O3b Networks and Kahkeshan Digisat fit securely within EMP’s corporate strategy of expansion in the video and data markets. Additionally, the company is continuing to grow by serving new global clients through the expansion, by offering a value proposition that stays competitive, customized, and flexible to customer needs.

New infrastructure investment continues in new products and services across the entire market. For example, the Nemea teleport just completed the installation of three, new, large dishes that range in size from 7.2 to 11 meters with an order already placed for additional dishes to be delivered in 2011.

On the fiber side, recent upgrades support STM-64 and Gigabit Ethernet high speed data rates. Human capital is also a top priority for us by retaining highly skilled and well trained employees.

In an expanding satellite market, there are many opportunities for maintaining growth through the appllication of well-conceived strategies — there is room to expand further in revenues and profitability. The strategy focuses on the global delivery of video solutions and the provision of new broadband high-speed data services.

Future growth appears strong for the African and Middle East markets, where new satellite capacity propositions can satisfy increasing demand for capacity, combined with the appropriate mix of teleport uplink and turnaround services.

emp_sm1210_bio_2 Europe Media Port is operating within a niche market which possesses its own dynamics of economic behavior — sometimes the dynamics appear to be uncorrelated with global trends. With an excellent geographic position, diverse connectivity with fiber networks, a competitive value proposition, and professional attitude to the most demanding customer, EMP is constantly working on various project that are unbounded by any geographical or service limitations. The target for 2011 is to offer more solutions and end-to-end services as the Company continues its aggressive move up the value proposition chain.
