FISCAL YEAR 2009 FINANCIAL OUTLOOK

Matt O'Connell, Chief Executive Officer and President, commented, "We are very pleased with the strong year-over-year revenue growth and operating performance in the second quarter. The operating success and financial results of the second quarter are due in large part because we are finally reaping the benefits of GeoEye-1, the world's best commercial imaging satellite.

"The GeoEye-1 satellite, the world's highest-resolution and highest-accuracy commercial imagery satellite, started commercial operations in February 2009. We achieved a significant ramp in revenues from our NGA contract in the second quarter, which was attributable to GeoEye-1's operating capabilities. We are pleased with the strong fundamentals of our business, and we believe we are strategically positioned for further expansion in both the government and commercial markets. We believe our solid financial position and strong operating cash flow will allow us to continue to invest for future growth.

"With the healthy mix of U.S. Government agency and commercial contracts, and the increasing growth of our international business, we believe we have strong visibility into the second half of 2009. GeoEye currently expects fiscal 2009 revenue to be between $270 million to $280 million, with adjusted EBITDA in the range of $125 million to $133 million, and EPS in a range of $1.10 per share to $1.37 per share. These estimates represent management's current expectations about the Company's future financial performance, based on information available at this time."
