Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Exchange Agreement for Thermo Debt Conversion; Issuance of Preferred Stock

In connection with our Partner's launch of Services on November 15, 2022, to satisfy Globalstar, Inc.'s (the "Company") obligation to complete the Thermo Debt Conversion (as described in the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed September 7, 2022), the Company entered into an Exchange Agreement dated as of November 15, 2022 (the “Exchange Agreement”) with affiliates of Thermo Companies (collectively, "Thermo") and certain other lenders (collectively, the “Exchanging Lenders”) providing for the exchange of all the outstanding principal amount of, and accrued and unpaid interest on, the Exchanging Lenders’ loans under the 2019 Facility Agreement for its 7.0% Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A, liquidation preference $1,000 per share (the “Series A Preferred Stock”), the terms of which are set forth in the Company's Certificate of Designation to its Third Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on November 15, 2022. Pursuant to the terms of the Exchange Agreement, on November 15, 2022, the Company exchanged a total of $149.4 million outstanding principal amount of, and accrued and unpaid interest on, the Exchanging Lenders’ loans under the 2019 Facility Agreement, including all loans held by Thermo, for a like aggregate liquidation preference of Series A Preferred Stock in a transaction exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933 pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) thereof.

Holders of Series A Preferred Stock will be entitled to receive, when, as and if declared by the Company’s Board of Directors or a committee thereof, cumulative cash dividends based on the liquidation preference of the Series A Preferred Stock, at a fixed rate equal to 7.00% per annum, payable quarterly in arrears on January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1 of each year, beginning on January 1, 2023. The Series A Preferred Stock ranks: (i) senior in right of payment to all securities designated as junior securities, including the Company’s common stock; (ii) pari passu in right of payment with all securities designated as parity securities; and (iii) junior in right of payment to any securities designated as senior securities. As long as any Series A Preferred Stock remains outstanding, the Company is generally prohibited from issuing any equity securities that are senior securities without the affirmative vote of a majority-interest of the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock. The Series A Preferred Stock is redeemable at the option of the Corporation, in whole or in part, at any time and from time to time, without penalty or premium at a redemption price equal to $1,000 per share, plus any unpaid accrued and accumulated dividends.

On November 15, 2022, the Company and Global Loan Agency Services Limited, as Agent for, and on behalf of, the lenders under the 2019 Facility Agreement, entered into a Letter Agreement setting forth such lenders' agreement to the Company’s entry into the Exchange Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby.
