Betzdorf (Luxembourg), 16 January 2009. SES ASTRA, an SES company (Euronext Paris and Luxembourg Stock Exchange: SESG), announces that its satellite ASTRA 5A, the former SIRIUS 2 operating at 31.5 degrees East, experienced a technical anomaly leading to the end of the spacecraft's mission. SES ASTRA has immediately informed affected customers and switched a substantial part of the traffic to another ASTRA satellite at the 23.5 degrees East orbital position. The service for the German cable operators through their company KDL is among the transferred services. With this transfer, the economic impact of the incident on SES in 2009 will not be material.
