Adding character and append last element of second column

could you help me in processing this file under bash?
I need to add some text to the first line and then append the last element of the second columns.
The input file is tab separated while the output should be space separated.

input file is
1.00E-02 2.00E-02 4.465E+17
2.00E-02 3.00E-02 5.423E+16
3.00E-02 4.50E-02 1.218E+17
4.50E-02 6.00E-02 2.600E+16
6.00E-02 7.00E-02 9.135E+15
7.00E-02 7.50E-02 1.238E+14
9.00E-01	1.00E+00	6.238E+14

desired output
TEXT     A
1.00E-02 A
2.00E-02 A
3.00E-02 A
4.50E-02 A
6.00E-02 A
7.00E-02 A
...      A

Thanks in advance,

In the very last row there should be the second column entry of the last row of the input.
the output should end as

9.00E-01	A
