P
Stratos Offshore Services Company
Petition for Declaratory Ruling
Startos Offshore Services Company (Stratos Offshore or "Petitioner") requests that the Commission extend its existing declaratory ruling under
section 310(b)(4) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. § 310(b)(4), to cover the Broadband Radio Service (BRS) licenses
that it won in Auction No. 86, see DA 09-2378 (rel. Nov. 6, 2009). Specifically, Petitioner requests a declaratory ruling approving the same level
of indirect foreign ownership in the BRS licenses as the Commission previously granted to Stratos Offshore for other common carrier wireless
licenses. Petitioner notes that the Commission previously granted a declaratory ruling approving the 100% indirect foreign ownership of Stratos
Offshore by Inmarsat plc and intermediate subsidiaries. See Robert M. Franklin, Transferor, Inmarsat plc, Transferee, Consolidated Application
for Consent to Transfer of Control of Stratos Global Corporation and its Subsidiaries from an Irrevocable Trust to Inmarsat plc, IB Docket No.
08-143, Memorandum Opinion and Order and Declaratory Ruling, DA 09-117, 24 FCC Rcd 449 (IB 2009) application for review pending.
Stratos Offshore, a Delaware corporation, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Stratos Holdings, Inc., also a Delaware corporation. Stratos Offshore
and Stratos Holdings are ultimately indirect, wholly-owned subsidiaries of Inmarsat plc through named intermediate subsidiaries which are
organized under the laws of Canada and the United Kingdom, both of which are World Trade Organization ("WTO") Member countries. Inmarsat
plc is a widely-held, publicly traded company organized under the laws of the United Kingdom.
According to Petitioner, the following entities or individuals hold ten percent or greater interests in Inmarsat plc, and indirectly in Stratos
Offshore: Harbinger Capital Partners Master Fund I, Ltd. ("Master Fund") and Harbinger Capital Partners Special Situations Fund, L.P. ("Special
Fund") (collectively, 28.13%); HGW Holding Company, L.P. ("HGW") (28.13%); Harbinger Capital Partners LLC (investment manager to the
Master Fund and Special Fund) (28.13%); Harbinger Capital Partners Special Situations GP, LLC ("HCPSS") (general partner of Special Fund)
(28.13%); Harbinger Holdings, LLC (managing member of Harbinger Capital Partners LLC and HCPSS) (28.13%); HGW GP, Ltd ("HGWGP")
(general partner of HGW) (28.13%); Philip A. Falcone (a U.S. citizen and managing member of Harbinger Holdings, LLC, portfolio manager to
the Master Fund and Special Fund, and controlling interest holder in HGWGP) (28.13%); and Lansdowne Partners Limited ("Lansdowne")
(13.04%, aggregate voting power held through management of various Landsdowne investment funds). The Master Fund, HGW and HGWGP are
organized under the laws of the Cayman Islands, a WTO Member country. The Special Fund is a Delaware limited partnership. Each of the other
named Harbinger entities is a Delaware limited liability company. Lansdowne was formed under the laws of the United Kingdom.
Petitioner asserts that, pursuant to the rules and polices established in the Commission's Foreign Participation Order, 12 FCC Rcd 23891 (1997),
Order on Reconsideration, 15 FCC Rcd 18518 (2000), the indirect ownership of Statos Offshore in excess of the 25 percent benchmark in section
310(b)(4) is consistent with the public interest.
Petitioner acknowledges that grant will be conditioned upon continued compliance with the Network Security Agreement between Inmarsat plc,
Stratos Global Corp., the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), dated September 23, 2008, and continued
compliance of Stratos Global Corp. with the Network Security Agreement between Stratos Global, DOJ, FBI and the Department of Homeland
Security, dated August 7, 2001 and Amendment No. 1 to that agreement, dated August 14, 2007.
Interested parties may file comments on or before March 8, 2010, and reply comments on or before March 15, 2010.
