Each Series A preferred share will automatically convert on May 1, 2016, into between 2.2676 and 2.7778 common shares. The number of shares issuable on conversion will be determined based on the average of the closing prices per share over the 40-trading-day period ending on the third trading day prior to the mandatory conversion date, the company said. They may be converted at any time before then at the minimum conversion rate of 2.2676 shares per Series A preferred share.

The board of directors said the dividend is payable on Nov. 1 to the holders of record at the close of business on Oct. 15. Intelsat does not pay a dividend on its common stock.
