Subject to the terms and conditions of the Transaction Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger (the 'Effective Time'), each share of Voting and Non-Voting Common Stock, $0.01 par value per share (the 'Loral Common Shares'), of Loral outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will be converted into the right to receive (a) if the Loral stockholder elects to receive units of Telesat Partnership pursuant to the Transaction Agreement (a 'Telesat Partnership Election'), one (1) newly issued Class A unit of Telesat Partnership ('Class A Units') if such Loral stockholder can demonstrate it is Canadian (as such term is defined in the Investment Canada Act), and otherwise one (1) newly issued Class B unit of Telesat Partnership ('Class B Units' and, together with the Class A Units and Class C Units, the 'Telesat Partnership Units'), or (b) if the Loral stockholder makes an election to receive shares of Telesat Corporation (a 'Telesat Corporation Election') or does not validly make a Telesat Partnership Election, one (1) newly issued Class A common share of Telesat Corporation ('Class A Shares') if such Loral stockholder can demonstrate it is Canadian (as such term is defined in the Investment Canada Act), and otherwise one (1) newly issued Class B common share of Telesat Corporation ('Class B Shares', together with the Class A Shares, the 'Telesat Public Shares' and, collectively with the Class C Shares, the 'Telesat Corporation Shares').

9. Substitute Form W-9 - U.S. Stockholders

In order to avoid 'backup withholding' of United States income tax on payments made on the Loral Common Shares, a Loral stockholder that is a U.S. holder (as defined below) must generally provide the person's correct taxpayer identification number ('TIN') on the Substitute Form W-9 above and certify, under penalties of perjury, that such number is correct, that such Loral stockholder is not subject to backup withholding, and that such Loral stockholder is a U.S. person (including a U.S. resident alien). For the purposes of this Election Form, a 'U.S. holder' or 'U.S. person' means: a beneficial owner of Loral Common Shares that, for United States federal income tax purposes, is (a) a citizen or resident of the United States, (b) a corporation, or other entity classified as a corporation for United States federal income tax purposes, that is created or organized in or under the laws of the United States or any state in the United States, including the District of Columbia, (c) an estate if the income of such estate is subject to United States federal income tax regardless of the source of such income, (d) a trust if (i) such trust has validly elected to be treated as a U.S. person for United States federal income tax purposes or (ii) a United States court is able to exercise primary supervision over the administration of such trust and one or more U.S. persons have the authority to control all substantial decisions of such trust or (e) a partnership, limited liability company or other entity classified as a partnership for United States tax purposes that is created or organized in or under the laws of the United States or any state in the United States, including the District of Columbia.

Backup withholding is not an additional United States income tax. Rather, the United States income tax liability of persons subject to backup withholding will be reduced by the amount of tax withheld. If backup withholding results in an overpayment of taxes, a refund may be obtained provided that the required information is furnished to the IRS.

Certain persons (including, among others, corporations, certain 'not-for-profit' organizations, and certain non-U.S. persons) are not subject to backup withholding. A Loral stockholder that is a U.S. holder should consult his or her tax advisor as to the stockholder's qualification for an exemption from backup withholding and the procedure for obtaining such exemption.

13

The TIN for an individual United States citizen or resident is the individual's social security number.

The 'Awaiting TIN' box of the substitute Form W-9 may be checked if a Loral stockholder has not been issued a TIN and has applied for a TIN or intends to apply for a TIN in the near future. If the 'Awaiting TIN' box is checked, the Loral stockholder that is a U.S. holder must also complete the Certificate of Awaiting Taxpayer Identification Number found below the Substitute Form W-9 in order to avoid backup withholding. If a Loral stockholder that is a U.S. holder completes the Certificate of Awaiting Taxpayer Identification Number but does not provide a TIN within sixty (60) days, such Stockholder will be subject to backup withholding at a rate of 24% until a TIN is provided.

Failure to furnish TIN - If you fail to furnish your correct TIN, you are subject to a penalty of U.S.$50 for each such failure unless your failure is due to reasonable cause and not to willful neglect.

Non-U.S. holders receiving payments in the U.S. should return a completed Form W-8BEN, a copy of which is available from the Depositary upon request.
