(Hughes) completed the acquisition of Helius as the result of the merger agreement entered into on December 21, 2007. In February 2008, subsequent to the acquisition, Hughes transferred its ownership of Helius to Hughes Network Systems, LLC. Helius, LLC will operate within the North America VSAT segment, due to the nature of its business activities, its customer base and similarities with the North America enterprise business. Helius' operations will continue to be located in Lindon, Utah.
Hughes will utilize Helius' innovative IP video technologies to enhance the existing HughesNet(R) digital media serviceofferings. Through this acquisition, Hughes and Helius are well positioned to provide industry leading technology and services for business television, corporate communications, digital signage, and distance learning. – less–ZoomInfo
