Effective as of December 14, 2011, NextWave Wireless Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Amendment and Limited Waiver (the “Amendment and Waiver”) to the Note Agreements (as defined below) governing the terms of: (i) the Senior Secured Notes (“First Lien Notes”) issued by NextWave Wireless LLC, a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Wireless”), (ii) the Senior-Subordinated Secured Second Lien Notes (“Second Lien Notes”) issued by Wireless and (iii) the Company’s Third Lien Subordinated Secured Convertible Notes (“Third Lien Notes” and, together with the First Lien Notes and Second Lien Notes, collectively, the “Notes”).

Pursuant to the Amendment and Waiver, all holders of the First Lien Notes, Second Lien Notes and Third Lien Notes (collectively, the “Holders”) consented to provide certain waivers under, and to amend the terms of, (i) the Purchase Agreement, dated as of July 17, 2006, among Wireless, the Company, as a guarantor, certain wholly-owned subsidiaries of Wireless that have guaranteed the obligations of Wireless under the First Lien Notes (the “Guarantors”), the Holders of First Lien Notes and The Bank of New York Mellon (formerly known as The Bank of New York) (“BNYM”), as Collateral Agent (as amended from time to time, the “First Lien Purchase Agreement”), (ii) the Second Lien Subordinated Note Purchase Agreement, dated as of October 9, 2008, among Wireless, the Company, as a guarantor, the Guarantors, the Holders of Second Lien Notes and BNYM, as Collateral Agent (as amended from time to time, the “Second Lien Purchase Agreement”), and (iii) the Third Lien Exchange Agreement dated as of October 9, 2008, among the Company, Wireless, as a guarantor, the Guarantors, the Holders of Third Lien Notes and BNYM, as Collateral Agent (as amended from time to time, the “Third Lien Purchase Agreement” and, together with the First Lien Purchase Agreement and the Second Lien Purchase Agreement, the “Note Agreements”).

No amendment or consent fee was paid to the Holders in connection with the Amendment and Waiver.
