Maxar Technologies Responds to Misleading Short Sell Report

Share:

The report on Maxar Technologies Ltd. ("Maxar" or the "Company",
formerly MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd.) (TSX:MAXR)
released today by Spruce Point Capital Management contains a number of
inaccurate claims and misleading statements.
Maxar believes it is
a direct attempt by a short-seller to profit, at the expense of Maxar
shareholders, by manipulating Maxar's stock price.

Maxar continues to execute against its strategy, and recently
reaffirmed its full year 2018 guidance for revenue and cash flow from
operations, while increasing its full-year adjusted EPS outlook. Maxar
believes that the Company remains positioned for future growth.
Management and the Board of Directors are focused on delivering enhanced
value for all Maxar shareholders.

Maxar continues to be fully committed to transparency in all of its
investor presentations and financial reports. Please refer to the
Company's disclosure materials filed with Canadian and U.S. securities
regulatory authorities, which are available online under the Company's
SEDAR profile at
