(1)

Pursuant to Rule 416(c) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), this registration statement also covers an indeterminate amount of interests to be offered or sold pursuant to the ViaSat, Inc. 401(k) Profit Sharing Plan (the “401(k) Plan”).

(2)

Pursuant to Rule 416 under the Securities Act, this registration statement also registers an indeterminate number of additional shares that may be issued pursuant to the 401(k) Plan as the result of any future stock dividend, stock split, recapitalization or any other similar transaction effected without the receipt of consideration which results in an increase in the number of outstanding shares of ViaSat, Inc. common stock.

(3)

The Proposed Maximum Offering Price Per Share has been estimated in accordance with Rules 457(c) and (h) under the Securities Act solely for the purpose of calculating the registration fee. The computation is based upon the average of the high and low prices of ViaSat, Inc. common stock as reported on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on May 18, 2015, because the offering price of the securities to be granted in the future is not currently determinable.
