The Connect consortium, which includes Apax Partners, Warburg Pincus, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board, said it agreed to ensure that strategic decisions for Inmarsat are carried out in the U.K. and network operations centers and engineering expertise will remain in the country.

Inmarsat shareholders approved a $3.4B takeover bid from Connect in May two months after receiving the offer from the consortium.
