We expect to receive our $111 million cost-share payment by the third quarter as previously disclosed. In addition, results for the first quarter were above our expectations, as our core business remained strong, and our international business continued to exhibit solid growth," said Matt O'Connell, GeoEye's chief executive officer and president. "We renewed a number of large international affiliate contracts, which gives us excellent visibility into our 2012 revenues. We performed well under our EnhancedView Service Level Agreement, and the construction of our GeoEye-2 satellite remains on time and on budget for a launch in the first half of 2013."
