Momentus Completes All Requirements of the National Security Agreement (NSA)

NSA Terminated by Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States

Momentus Inc. (NASDAQ: MNTS) ("Momentus" or the "Company"), a U.S. commercial space company that offers satellite buses and in-space infrastructure services including transportation, hosted payloads, and other in-orbit services, today announced that the company has been informed by the U.S. Department of the Treasury that following the Company’s completing all requirements of the National Security Agreement (NSA) it entered with Momentus in July 2021 the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) has approved the Company’s exit from the agreement and its termination.

“The end of the CFIUS process is an enormous positive step for Momentus that culminates more than two years of intensive work by everyone in the Company. I am incredibly appreciative not just of all of their efforts, but also of the U.S. Government’s recognition that our achievements warranted ending the National Security Agreement at this time,” said Momentus Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John Rood. “Momentus has now emerged from this rigorous process clear of any lingering security concerns.”

“Over the course of the past two and half years, Momentus worked closely with the CFIUS Monitoring Agencies to implement a National Security Agreement. Third-party monitoring and validation occurred throughout to assess effectiveness and develop a record of performance,” said Momentus Chief Security Officer Jason Garkey. “This close collaboration included divestment of the original foreign Chief Executive Officer and investors; implementing, monitoring and testing increased cybersecurity measures; and a complete zero-based review and improvement of the Company’s export control program. External audits provided further confirmation that we established effective systems worthy of external scrutiny. The CFIUS process required Momentus to mature its business procedures much faster than a typical early-stage company and accelerated capability development. We view this achievement as a significant milestone and confirmation of the Company’s commitment to national security.”

Momentus has flown four missions, deployed 17 customer payloads, and provided hosted payload services. Last year, the Company completed initial in-space testing of its pioneering spacecraft engine that uses water as a propellant and a new kind of solar array that utilizes flexible solar cell technology. Momentus is currently working with the Space Development Agency on a Small Business Innovation and Research Contract to modify its Vigoride spacecraft for defense applications. The Company also offers its M-series satellite buses built on Vigoride’s flight-proven technology.
