Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

Agreement with Hong Kong Airlines

 

In furtherance of a master agreement signed in June 2015 between Aircom Pacific, Inc., a California corporation (“Aircom”) and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aerkomm Inc. (the “Company”) and Hong Kong Airlines Limited, a company organized under the laws of Hong Kong (“Hong Kong Airlines”), on January 30, 2020, Aircom and Hong Kong Airlines entered into an agreement (the “HKA Agreement”) revising the master agreement, pursuant to which Aircom will provide to Hong Kong Airlines its Ka-band AERKOMM K++ IFEC system for installation on its fleet of 12 Airbus A320 and 5 Airbus A330-300 aircraft as well as the AERKOMM AirCinema system for the Airbus A320 aircraft.

 

The AERKOMM K++ IFEC system will provide passengers of Hong Kong Airlines with an “at home” network experience by giving free access to on-board WiFi internet connectivity to all passenger personal devices, including laptops, mobile phones and tablets. The AERKOMM AirCinema system will introduce free high speed internet access to the seat back screens of Hong Kong Airlines’ Airbus A320 aircraft, connected via the Ka-band AERKOMM K++ IFEC system.

 

The HKA Agreement contains the terms and conditions of the supply of the AERKOMM K++ IFEC system by Aircom to Hong Kong Airlines, including the specifications, services, support, ongoing maintenance, training, warranty and connectivity services. Details relating to, and terms of, the services to be provided via the AERKOMM K++ system are being actively discussed by Aircom and Hong Kong Airlines and will be set forth in one or more service level agreements to be entered into by the parties.

 

The foregoing summary of the HKA Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the HKA Agreement, as it may be redacted, which the Company intends to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission as an exhibit to its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.

 

ITEM 8.01. Other Events

 

On February 4, 2020, the Company issued a press release announcing the HKA Agreement. The press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in any such filings.
