Gogo Inc. (NASDAQ: GOGO) (“Gogo” or the “Company”), the world’s largest provider of broadband connectivity services for the business aviation market, today announced that it has agreed to repurchase 1,500,000 shares of Common Stock owned by affiliates of BlackRock, Inc. (“BlackRock”), in a private transaction, for an aggregate purchase price of $18,345,000, or $12.23 per share (the “Repurchase”).

Gogo today also announced that BlackRock inadvertently acquired beneficial ownership of more than 4.9% of Gogo’s common stock (“Common Stock”), exceeding the threshold stipulated in Gogo’s Section 382 Rights Agreement, dated September 23, 2020 (the “Plan”). On September 15, 2022, pursuant to the Plan and following approval by the Gogo Board of Directors, Gogo requested that BlackRock, as promptly as practicable, divest sufficient shares of Common Stock to take its beneficial ownership below 4.9% (the “Shareholder Rights Plan Request”).
