                                  THE COMPANY
 
  Primus is a multinational telecommunications company that focuses on the
provision of international and domestic long distance services. The Company
seeks to capitalize on the increasing business and consumer demand for
international telecommunications services generated by the globalization of
world economies and the worldwide trend toward deregulation of the
telecommunications sector. The Company has targeted North America, Asia-Pacific
and Europe as its primary service regions (the "Targeted Regions"). The Company
currently provides services in the United States, Australia and the United
Kingdom (the "Operating Hubs"), which are the most deregulated countries within
the Targeted Regions and which serve as regional hubs for expansion into
additional markets within the Targeted Regions. As part of the execution of
this strategy, the Company has commenced operations in Canada and Mexico. The
Company expects to expand into additional markets as deregulation occurs and
the Company is permitted to offer a full range of switched public telephone
services.
 
  For the year ended December 31, 1995 and the six months ended June 30, 1996,
the Company had pro forma net revenue of approximately $126 million and $92
million, respectively, after giving effect to the Company's March 1996
acquisition of Axicorp Pty., Ltd. ("Axicorp"), the fourth largest
telecommunications provider in Australia. For the three months ended June 30,
1996, the Company had net revenue of approximately $48 million. As of July 31,
1996, the Company had 221 full-time employees and approximately 24,000
customers.
 
  The Company targets, on a retail basis, small- and medium-sized businesses
with significant international long distance traffic and ethnic residential
consumers and, on a wholesale basis, other telecommunications carriers and
resellers with international traffic. The Company provides a broad array of
competitively priced telecommunications services, including international long
distance to over 200 countries, domestic long distance, and international and
domestic private networks, as well as local switched and cellular services in
Australia, prepaid and calling cards in the United States and the United
Kingdom and toll-free services in the United States. The Company markets its
services through a variety of sales channels, including direct sales,
independent agents, direct marketing and associations.

  The Company is implementing its international telecommunications network (the
"Network") to reduce and control costs, improve service reliability and
increase flexibility to introduce new products and services. The Network
currently consists of an international gateway switch in Washington, D.C.,
points-of-presence in New York and London, and leased transmission capacity
connecting to the networks of other international and domestic carriers. The
Company also has correspondent agreements with the government-owned Postal,
Telephone and Telegraph Companies ("PTTs") in India, Iran and Honduras. The
Company has installed three additional international gateway switches in
Melbourne, Sydney and Toronto, has acquired two international gateway switches
for installation in New York and Los Angeles and three other switches for
installation in Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth, all eight of which are expected
to be operational by the end of the first quarter of 1997. The Company expects
to acquire an additional switch for installation in London and additional
switches and points-of-presence for installation in other major metropolitan
areas of the Targeted Regions. The Company expects to connect its gateway
switches between Sydney and Los Angeles with a trans-Pacific fiber-optic cable
link by the end of the first quarter of 1997. The Company also intends to
purchase additional switches and ownership in international fiber-optic cables,
install international gateway satellite earth station facilities, lease
additional transmission capacity and, where necessary, obtain additional
correspondent agreements.
 
  The Company's objective is to become a leading provider of international and
domestic long distance voice, data and value-added services to its target
customers. The Company's strategy to achieve this objective is to focus on
providing a full range of competitively priced, high-quality services in the
Targeted Regions. Key elements in the Company's strategy include:
 
  .   Focus on Customers with Significant International Long
      Distance Usage. The Company's primary focus is providing
      telecommunications services to small- and medium-sized
      businesses with significant international long distance
      traffic and to ethnic residential consumers and, on a
      wholesale basis, to other telecommunications carriers and
      resellers with international traffic. The Company believes
      that the international long distance market offers an
      attractive business opportunity given its size and, as
      compared to the domestic long distance market, its higher
      revenue per minute, gross margin and expected growth rate.
      Although the Company expects to obtain a significant
      percentage of its revenues from offering international long
      distance services, the Company currently generates, and
      expects to continue to generate over the near term, a greater
      percentage of net revenue from domestic long distance
      services in an effort to build network traffic more quickly.
 
  .   Pursue Early Entry into Selected Deregulating Markets. Primus
      seeks to be an early entrant into selected overseas
      deregulating telecommunications markets where it believes
      there is significant demand for international long distance
      services, substantial growth and profit potential, and the
      opportunity to establish a customer base and achieve name
      recognition. The Company intends to use each Operating Hub as
      a base to expand into deregulating markets within the
      Targeted Regions and will focus its expansion efforts on
      major metropolitan areas with a high concentration of target
      customers with international traffic. The Company believes
      that management's international telecommunications experience
      will assist it in successfully identifying and launching
      operations in deregulating markets.
 
  .   Implement Intelligent International Network. The Company
      expects that the strategic development of the Network will
      lead to reduced transmission and other operating costs as a
      percentage of net revenue, reduced reliance on other carriers
      and more efficient network utilization. The Network will
      consist of (i) a global backbone network connecting
      intelligent gateway switches in the Targeted Regions, (ii) a
      domestic long distance network presence in each of the
      Operating Hubs and certain additional countries within the
      Targeted Regions and (iii) a combination of leased
      facilities, resale arrangements and correspondent agreements.

  .   Deliver Quality Services at Competitive Prices. The Company
      delivers high-quality services at competitive prices and
      provides a high level of customer service. The Company
      intends to maintain a low-cost structure in order to offer
      its customers international and domestic long distance
      services priced below that of its major competitors. In
      addition, the Company intends to maintain strong customer
      relationships through the use of trained and experienced
      service representatives and the provision of customized
      billing services.
 
  .   Provide a Comprehensive Package of Services. The Company
      seeks to provide a comprehensive package of services to
      create "one-stop shopping" for its targeted customers'
      telecommunications needs, particularly for small- and medium-
      sized businesses and ethnic residential consumers that prefer
      a full service telecommunications provider. The Company
      believes this approach strengthens its marketing efforts and
      increases customer retention.
 
  The Company acquired Axicorp, the fourth largest telecommunications provider
in Australia, in March 1996. Axicorp provides the Company early entry into the
deregulating Australian telecommunications market and will serve as the
Company's gateway to the Asia-Pacific region. Prior to the acquisition, Axicorp
was a switchless reseller of long distance, local switched and cellular
services. Since the acquisition, the Company has acquired five switches for use
in Australia, which are expected to be operational by the end of the first
quarter of 1997, and has focused on increasing the number of higher-margin,
higher-volume business customers with significant international long distance
traffic. As part of its increasing focus on business customers, the Company is
increasing Axicorp's direct sales force and reducing its reliance on marketing
through associations. The Company believes that the ongoing transformation of
Axicorp's strategy and operations to those of a facilities-based carrier
focused on the provision of international and domestic long distance services
is an example of the execution of the Company's business model. For the twelve
months ended March 31, 1996, Axicorp generated net revenue of approximately
$144 million. See "Business--Axicorp."
 
  Primus was co-founded in 1994 by K. Paul Singh, its Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer, who formerly served as Vice President of Marketing for MCI.
Mr. Singh previously founded two other telecommunications companies, Overseas
Telecommunications, Inc. ("OTI") and the Cygnus Satellite Corporation
("Cygnus"), both of which focused on international telecommunications. OTI and
Cygnus were acquired by MCI and PanAmSat, respectively. The executive officers
of the Company and several of the other members of its management team have
substantial experience in the telecommunications and other related industries,
and have served in management positions with companies such as MCI, OTI, IBM
and M/A Com (now known as Hughes Network Systems, Inc.). See "Management--
Executive Officers, Directors and Key Employees."
 
  On July 31, 1996, the Soros/Chatterjee Group (as defined in "Certain
Transactions") purchased an equity interest in the Company for an aggregate
purchase price of approximately $16.0 million (the "Private Equity Sale") and,
after giving effect to the Offering, will collectively beneficially own  % of
the Common Stock. Additionally, on January 12, 1996, Teleglobe USA, Inc.
("Teleglobe"), invested approximately $1.46 million in the Company and, after
giving effect to the Offering, will beneficially own  % of the Common Stock.
See "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of
Operations" and "Certain Transactions."
 
  The Company was incorporated in February 1994. The executive offices of the
Company are located at 8180 Greensboro Drive, Suite 1100, McLean, Virginia

                                 RISK FACTORS
 
  In addition to the other information contained in this Prospectus, the
following risk factors should be considered carefully in evaluating the
Company and its business before purchasing the shares of the Common Stock
offered hereby.
 
LIMITED OPERATING HISTORY; ENTRY INTO DEVELOPING MARKETS
 
  The Company was founded in February 1994 and began generating operating
revenues in March 1995. Axicorp, the Company's principal operating subsidiary,
was acquired in March 1996. The Company has generated only limited net revenue
and has limited experience in operating its business. In addition, the Company
intends to enter markets where it has limited or no operating experience.
Furthermore, in many of the Company's target markets, the Company intends to
offer services that have previously been provided only by the local PTT.
Accordingly, there can be no assurance that the Company's future operations
will generate operating or net income, and the Company's prospects must
therefore be considered in light of the risks, expenses, problems and delays
inherent in establishing a new business in a rapidly changing industry. See
"Selected Financial Data" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of
Financial Condition and Results of Operations."
 
MANAGING RAPID GROWTH
 
  The Company's strategy of continuing its growth and expansion has placed,
and is expected to continue to place, a significant strain on the Company's
management, operational and financial resources and increased demands on its
systems and controls. The Company plans to develop the Network by adding
switches, cable and satellite facilities, expand its operations within the
United States, Australia and the United Kingdom, and expand into selected
additional markets within the Targeted Regions when business and regulatory
conditions warrant. In order to manage its growth effectively, the Company
must continue to implement and improve its operational and financial systems
and controls, purchase and utilize other transmission facilities, and expand,
train and manage its employee base. Inaccuracies in the Company's forecasts of
traffic could result in insufficient or excessive transmission facilities and
disproportionate fixed expenses. There can be no assurance that the Company
will be able to develop a facilities-based network or expand within its target
markets at the rate presently planned by the Company, or that the existing
regulatory barriers to such expansion will be reduced or eliminated. As the
Company proceeds with its development, there will be additional demands on the
Company's customer support, sales and marketing and administrative resources
and network infrastructure. There can be no assurance that the Company's
operating and financial control systems and infrastructure will be adequate to
maintain and effectively manage future growth. The failure to continue to
upgrade the administrative, operating and financial control systems or the
emergence of unexpected expansion difficulties could materially adversely
affect the Company's business, results of operations and financial condition.
 
HISTORICAL AND FUTURE NET LOSSES
 
  The Company incurred net losses in 1994 and 1995 and had an accumulated
deficit of approximately $6.2 million as of June 30, 1996. Although the
Company has experienced net revenue growth in each of its last six quarters,
such growth should not be considered to be indicative of future net revenue
growth, if any. The Company expects its net losses to increase as the Company
uses the proceeds of the Offering to accelerate the expansion of its
operations and build-out of the Network. There can be no assurance that the
Company's revenue will grow or be sustained in future periods or that the
Company will be able to achieve profitability in any future period. See
"Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of
Operations."
 
NEED FOR ADDITIONAL FINANCING
 
  The Company believes that the net proceeds from the Offering, together with
the net proceeds from the Private Equity Sale, borrowing capacity under an
expected line of credit, available capital lease financing and cash flow from
operations will be sufficient to meet the Company's working capital, capital
expenditure and other
 
                                       9

<PAGE>
 
cash needs for the next 18 months. The Company, however, will need to raise
additional capital from public or private equity or debt sources in order to
finance its future growth, including financing the further construction of the
Network and expanding service within existing markets and to new markets,
which can be capital intensive, as well as its unanticipated working capital
needs and capital expenditure requirements. Furthermore, the Company may need
to raise additional funds in order to take advantage of unanticipated
opportunities, including more rapid international expansion or acquisitions
of, investments in or strategic alliances with, companies that are
complementary to the Company's current operations, or to develop new products
or otherwise respond to unanticipated competitive pressures. There can be no
assurance that the Company will be able to raise such capital on satisfactory
terms or at all. If the Company decides to raise additional funds through the
incurrence of debt, it would likely become subject to restrictive financial
covenants. In the event that the Company is unable to obtain such additional
capital or is unable to obtain such additional capital on acceptable terms,
the Company may be required to reduce the scope of its expansion, which could
adversely affect the Company's business, results of operations and financial
condition and its ability to compete. Additionally, if additional funds are
raised through the issuance of equity securities, the percentage ownership of
the Company's then current stockholders would be reduced and, if such equity
securities take the form of preferred stock, the holders of such preferred
stock may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of holders of
Common Stock. See "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition
and Results of Operations--Liquidity and Capital Resources" and "Description
of Capital Stock--Preferred Stock."
 
INTENSE DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION
 
  The long distance telecommunications industry is intensely competitive and
is significantly influenced by the marketing and pricing decisions of the
larger industry participants. In most countries, the industry has relatively
limited barriers to entry with numerous entities competing for the same
customers. Customers frequently change long distance providers in response to
the offering of lower rates or promotional incentives by competitors.
Generally, the Company's customers can switch carriers at any time. The
Company believes that competition in all of its markets is likely to increase
and that competition in non-United States markets is likely to become more
similar to competition in the United States market over time as such non-
United States markets continue to experience deregulatory influences. In each
of its Targeted Regions, the Company competes primarily on the basis of price
(particularly with respect to its sales to other carriers), and also on the
basis of customer service and its ability to provide a variety of
telecommunications products and services. There can be no assurance that the
Company will be able to compete successfully in the future.
 
  Many of the Company's competitors are significantly larger, have
substantially greater financial, technical and marketing resources and larger
networks than the Company and a broader portfolio of services, control
transmission lines and have strong name recognition and loyalty, long-standing
relationships with the Company's target customers, and economies of scale
which can result in a lower cost structure for transmission and related costs.
These competitors include, among others, AT&T, MCI, Sprint, WorldCom, Frontier
and LCI in the United States; Telstra, Optus and AAPT in Australia; and
British Telecom, Mercury, AT&T, WorldCom, Sprint and ACC in the United
Kingdom. The Company also competes with numerous other long distance
providers, some of which focus their efforts on the same customers targeted by
the Company. In addition to these competitors, recent and pending deregulation
in various countries may encourage new entrants. For example, as a result of
the recently enacted Telecommunications Act of 1996 (the "1996
Telecommunications Act") in the United States, once certain conditions are
met, Regional Bell Operating Companies ("RBOCs") will be allowed to enter the
domestic long distance market, AT&T, MCI and other long distance carriers will
be allowed to enter the local telephone services market, and any entity
(including cable television companies and utilities) will be allowed to enter
both the local service and long distance telecommunications markets. Increased
competition in the United States as a result of the foregoing, and other
competitive developments, including entry by Internet service providers into
the long-distance market, could have an adverse effect on the Company's
business, results of operations and financial condition. See "Management's
Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,"
"Business--Competition" and "Business--Government Regulation."
 
 
                                      10

<PAGE>
 
DEPENDENCE ON TRANSMISSION FACILITIES-BASED CARRIERS
 
  Telephone calls made by the Company's customers are connected through
transmission lines that the Company leases under a variety of arrangements with
transmission facilities-based long distance carriers, many of which are, or may
become, competitors of the Company. The Company's ability to maintain and
expand its business is dependent upon whether the Company continues to maintain
favorable relationships with the transmission facilities-based carriers from
which the Company leases transmission lines. Although the Company believes that
its relationships with carriers generally are satisfactory, the deterioration
or termination of the Company's relationships with one or more of those
carriers could have a material adverse effect upon the Company's cost
structure, service quality, Network diversity, results of operations and
financial condition.
 
  Presently, most transmission lines used by the Company are obtained on a per-
call (or usage) basis, subjecting the Company to unanticipated changes such as
price increases and service cancellations. Currently, usage rates generally are
less than the rates the Company charges its customers for connecting calls
through these lines. To the extent these variable costs increase, the Company
may experience reduced or, in certain circumstances, negative margins for some
services. As its traffic volume increases between particular international
markets, the Company expects to cease using variable usage arrangements and
enter into fixed monthly or longer-term leasing arrangements, subject to
obtaining any requisite authority. To the extent the Company does so, and
incorrectly projects traffic volume in a particular geographic area, the
Company would experience higher fixed costs without the increased revenue.
Moreover, certain of the vendors from whom the Company leases transmission
lines, including RBOCs and other Local Exchange Carriers ("LECs") in the United
States, currently are subject to tariff controls and other price constraints
which in the future may be changed. Regulatory proposals are pending that may
affect the prices charged by the RBOCs and other LECs to the Company, which
could have a material adverse effect on the Company's margins, business,
financial condition and results of operations. See "--Potential Adverse Effects
of Regulation" and "Business--Government Regulation."
 
RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH INTERNATIONAL OPERATIONS
 
  A key component of the Company's strategy is its planned expansion in
international markets. In many international markets, the existing carrier will
control access to the local networks, enjoy better brand recognition and brand
and customer loyalty, and have significant operational economies, including a
larger backbone network and correspondent agreements with PTTs. Moreover, the
incumbent may take many months to allow competitors, including the Company, to
interconnect to its switches within the target market. Pursuit of international
growth opportunities may require significant investments for an extended period
before returns, if any, on such investments are realized. In addition, there
can be no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain the permits and
operating licenses required for it to operate, obtain access to local
transmission facilities or to market, sell and deliver competitive services in
these markets.
 
  In addition to the uncertainty as to the Company's ability to expand its
international presence, there are certain risks inherent in doing business on
an international level, such as unexpected changes in regulatory requirements,
tariffs, customs, duties and other trade barriers, difficulties in staffing and
managing foreign operations, problems in collecting accounts receivable,
political risks, fluctuations in currency exchange rates, foreign exchange
controls which restrict or prohibit repatriation of funds, technology export
and import restrictions or prohibitions, delays from customs brokers or
government agencies, seasonal reductions in business activity during the summer
months in Europe and certain other parts of the world, and potentially adverse
tax consequences resulting from operating in multiple jurisdictions with
different tax laws, which could materially adversely impact the Company's
international operations. A significant portion of the Company's net revenue
and expenses is denominated, and is expected to continue to be denominated, in
currencies other than U.S. dollars, and changes in exchange rates may have a
significant effect on the Company's results of operations. In addition, the
Company's business could be adversely affected by a reversal in the current
trend toward deregulation of telecommunications carriers. In Mexico, and in
certain other countries into which the Company may choose to expand in the
future, the Company may need to enter into a joint venture or other strategic
 
                                       11

<PAGE>
 
relationship with one or more third parties in order to successfully conduct
its operations (often with the PTT or other dominant carrier in a developing
country). There can be no assurance that such factors will not have a material
adverse effect on the Company's future operations and, consequently, on the
Company's business, results of operations and financial condition, or that the
Company will not have to modify its current business practices. In addition,
there can be no assurance that laws or administrative practices relating to
taxation, foreign exchange or other matters of countries within which the
Company operates will not change. Any such change could have a material
adverse effect on the Company's business, financial condition and results of
operations.
 
DEPENDENCE ON EFFECTIVE INFORMATION SYSTEMS
 
  To complete its billing, the Company must record and process massive amounts
of data quickly and accurately. While the Company believes its management
information system is currently adequate, it will have to grow as the
Company's business expands and to change as new technological developments
occur. The Company expects to upgrade many of its accounting systems within
the upcoming 12-month period. The Company believes that the successful
implementation and integration of new information systems and backroom support
will be important to its continued growth, its ability to monitor and control
costs, to bill customers accurately and in a timely fashion and to achieve
operating efficiencies. There can be no assurance that the Company will not
encounter delays or cost-overruns or suffer adverse consequences in
implementing these systems. See "Business--Management Information and Billing
Systems." Any such delay or other malfunction of the Company's management
information systems could have a material adverse effect on the Company's
business, financial condition and results of operations.
 
RISKS OF INDUSTRY CHANGES AFFECTING COMPETITIVENESS AND FINANCIAL RESULTS
 
  The international telecommunications industry is changing rapidly due to
deregulation, privatization of PTTs, technological improvements, expansion of
telecommunications infrastructure and the globalization of the world's
economies. There can be no assurance that one or more of these factors will
not vary in a manner that could have a material adverse effect on the Company.
In addition, deregulation in any particular market may cause such market to
shift unpredictably. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able
to compete effectively or adjust its contemplated plan of development to meet
changing market conditions.
 
  The telecommunications industry generally is in a period of rapid
technological evolution, marked by the introduction of new product and service
offerings and increasing satellite transmission capacity for services similar
to those provided by the Company. Potential developments that could adversely
affect the Company if not anticipated or appropriately responded to include
improvements in transmission equipment, development of switching technology
allowing voice/data/video multimedia transmission simultaneously and
commercial availability of Internet-based domestic and international switched
voice/data/video services at prices lower than comparable services offered by
the Company. The Company's profitability will depend on its ability to
anticipate, access and adapt to rapid technological changes and its ability to
offer, on a timely and cost-effective basis, services that meet evolving
industry standards. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to
access or adapt to such technological changes at a competitive price, maintain
competitive services or obtain new technologies on a timely basis or on
satisfactory terms.
 
DEVELOPMENT OF THE NETWORK
 
  The Company has only recently begun operating the Network. The long-term
success of the Company is dependent upon its ability to design, implement,
operate, manage and maintain the Network, activities in which the Company has
limited experience. In expanding the Network, the Company will incur
substantial indebtedness and additional fixed operating costs. There can be no
assurance that the Network can
 
                                      12

<PAGE>
 
be completed in a timely manner or operated efficiently. See "Business--
Network." Any failure by the Company to properly design, implement, operate,
manage or maintain the Network could have a material adverse effect on the
Company's business, results of operations and financial condition. See
"Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Conditions and Results of
Operations" and "Business."
 
DEPENDENCE ON KEY PERSONNEL
 
  The Company is dependent on the efforts of its management team and its key
technical, marketing and sales personnel, particularly those of K. Paul Singh,
its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. The loss of services of one or more
of these key individuals, particularly Mr. Singh, could materially and
adversely affect the business of the Company and its future prospects. The
Company has entered into an employment agreement with Mr. Singh, which expires
on May 30, 1999. The Company maintains key person life insurance on the life
of Mr. Singh, but not on the lives of any other officer or director. The
Company's future success will also depend on its ability to attract and retain
additional key management, technical and sales personnel required in
connection with the growth and development of its business. Competition for
qualified employees and personnel in the telecommunications industry is
intense, particularly in non-U.S. markets and, from time to time, there are a
limited number of persons with knowledge of and experience in particular
sectors of the telecommunications industry. There can be no assurance that the
Company will be successful in attracting and retaining such executives and
personnel. The loss of the services of key personnel, or the inability to
attract additional qualified personnel, could have a material adverse effect
on the Company's results of operations, development efforts and ability to
expand. See "Management."
 
POTENTIAL ADVERSE EFFECTS OF REGULATION
 
  As a multinational telecommunications company, Primus is subject to varying
degrees of regulation in each of the jurisdictions in which it provides its
services. Local laws and regulations, and the interpretation of such laws and
regulations, differ significantly among the jurisdictions in which the Company
operates. There can be no assurance that future regulatory, judicial and
legislative changes will not have a material adverse effect on the Company,
that domestic or international regulators or third parties will not raise
material issues with regard to the Company's compliance or noncompliance with
applicable regulations or that regulatory activities will not have a material
adverse effect on the Company. Certain risks regarding the regulatory
framework in the principal jurisdictions in which the Company provides its
services are briefly described below.
 
  United States. In the United States, the provision of the Company's services
is subject to the provisions of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended
(the "Communications Act"), the 1996 Telecommunications Act and the Federal
Communications Commission (the "FCC") regulations thereunder, as well as the
applicable laws and regulations of the various states administered by the
relevant state public service commission ("PSCs"). The recent trend in the
United States, for both federal and state regulation of telecommunications
service providers, has been in the direction of reduced regulation. Although
this trend facilitates market entry and competition by multiple providers, it
has also given AT&T, the largest international and domestic long distance
carrier in the United States, increased pricing and market entry flexibility
that has permitted it to compete more effectively with smaller carriers, such
as the Company. In addition, the recently enacted 1996 Telecommunications Act
has opened the Company's U.S. market to increased competition. There can be no
assurance that future regulatory, judicial and legislative changes in the
United States will not have a material adverse effect on the Company.
 
  Despite recent trends toward deregulation, the FCC and relevant state PSCs
continue to exercise extensive authority to regulate ownership of transmission
facilities, provision of services and the terms and conditions under which the
Company's services are provided. In addition, the Company is required by
federal and state law and regulations to file the tariffs listing the rates,
terms and conditions of the services it provides. Any failure to maintain
proper federal and state tariffs or certification or any finding by the
federal or state agencies that the Company is not operating under permissible
terms and conditions may result in an enforcement action or investigation,
either of which could have a material adverse effect on the Company.
 
                                      13

  To originate and terminate calls in connection with providing their
services, long distance carriers such as the Company must purchase "access"
from the LECs or Competitive Local Exchange Carriers ("CLECs"). Access charges
represent a significant portion of the Company's cost of revenue and,
generally, such access charges are regulated by the FCC. The FCC has
informally announced that it intends, in the near future, to undertake a
comprehensive review of its regulation of LEC access charges to better account
for increasing levels of local competition. Under alternative access charge
rate structures being considered by the FCC, LECs would be permitted to allow
volume discounts in the pricing of access charges. While the outcome of these
proceedings is uncertain, if these rate structures are adopted, many long
distance carriers, including the Company, could be placed at a significant
cost disadvantage to larger competitors.
 
  The FCC and certain state agencies also impose prior approval requirements
on transfers of control, including pro forma transfers of control and
corporate reorganizations, and assignments of regulatory authorizations. The
FCC also regulates the nature and extent of foreign ownership and foreign
carrier affiliations of the Company. Such requirements may delay, prevent or
deter a change in control of the Company.
 
  Regulatory requirements pertinent to the Company's operations have recently
changed and will continue to change as a result of federal legislation, court
decisions, and new and revised policies of the FCC and state public service
commissions. Among other things, such changes may alter the ability of the
Company to compete with other service providers, to continue providing the
same services, or introduce services currently planned for the future. The
impact on the Company's operations of any changes in applicable regulatory
requirements cannot be predicted.
 
  Australia. In Australia, the provision of the Company's services is subject
to federal regulation pursuant to the Telecommunications Act 1991 of Australia
(the "Telecom Act") and federal regulation of anticompetitive practices
pursuant to the Trade Practices Act 1974. In addition, other federal
legislation, various regulations pursuant to delegated authority and
legislation, ministerial declarations, codes, directions, licenses, statements
of Commonwealth Government policy and court decisions affecting
telecommunications carriers also apply to the Company. There can be no
assurance that future declarations, codes, directions, licenses, regulations,
and judicial and legislative changes will not have a material adverse effect
on the Company.
 
  The Australian telecommunications industry continues to undergo
deregulation, and it is currently expected that the Australian Government will
license additional carriers, including the Company, to own transmission
facilities in July 1997. Both Telstra and Optus have requested that the
Australian Government defer such date, and there can be no assurance that the
deregulatory process will proceed in accordance with the Australian
Government's announced timetable. Any delay in such deregulatory process or in
the granting of a license to the Company would prohibit the Company from
owning transmission facilities in Australia and thereby limit the Company's
ability to realize additional efficiencies expected to result from the
incorporation of owned facilities into its Network.
 
  The Australian Telecommunications Authority ("AUSTEL"), as the federal
telecommunications regulatory authority, currently has control over a broad
range of issues affecting the operation of the Australian telecommunications
industry including the licensing of carriers, the promotion of competition,
consumer protection and technical matters. As a reseller of domestic, local
and long distance service, cellular service, and international service, the
Company must comply with the terms of the class license that applies to all
service providers until July 1997 or later, if the deregulatory process in
Australia is delayed. The Company currently plans to become a licensed general
carrier as soon as it is practicable to do so. As a general licensed carrier,
the Company will be required to comply with the terms of its own license and
would be subject to greater regulatory controls such as in areas of regulation
of connectivity, provision of access to service providers, land access and
contributions to the net cost of universal service throughout Australia (to
provide telecommunications services at reasonable prices to remote sections of
that country) applicable to licensed facilities-based carriers.
 
  There can be no assurance that a change in government, in government policy
in relation to telecommunications or competition, in AUSTEL's enforcement of
the Telecom Act, in government policy for
 
                                      14

<PAGE>
 
the restructuring of the various regulatory authorities that is expected to
occur as part of the July 1997 changes, or a deferral of the implementation of
the Australian Government's deregulation policy (particularly due to current
requests for a deferral by Telstra and Optus), will not have a material
adverse effect on the Company's business, results of operations or financial
condition.
 
  United Kingdom. In the United Kingdom, the provision of the Company's
services is subject to and affected by regulations introduced by the U.K.
telecommunications regulatory authority, the Office of Telecommunications
("Oftel") under the Telecommunications Act of 1984 (the "U.K.
Telecommunications Act"). Since the break up of the U.K. telecommunications
duopoly consisting of British Telecom and Mercury in 1991, it has been the
stated goal of Oftel to create a competitive marketplace from which detailed
regulation could eventually be withdrawn. The regulatory regime currently
being introduced by Oftel has a direct and material effect on the ability of
the Company to conduct its business. Oftel has imposed mandatory rate
reductions on British Telecom in the past, which reductions are expected to
continue for the foreseeable future, and this has had, and may continue to
have, the effect of reducing the prices the Company can charge its customers.
The Company currently holds a license to provide international simple resale
("ISR") services over leased lines to all international points from the United
Kingdom. In addition, the Company (along with approximately 45 other
applicants including AT&T, WorldCom, and ACC) has recently made application to
the U.K. Secretary for Trade and Industry for a license to provide
international facilities based voice services. Although the Company currently
expects such license to be granted by the end of the first quarter of 1997,
there can be no assurance that the Company will be granted the license by such
time, or at all. Failure to obtain such license would prevent the Company from
providing facilities based services in the United Kingdom and would have an
adverse effect on the Company's ability to expand its operations. In addition,
there can be no assurance that future changes in regulation and government
will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, results of
operations and financial condition.
 
  Other Jurisdictions. The Company currently provides limited services in
Mexico and Canada, and intends to expand its operations into other
jurisdictions as such markets deregulate and the Company is able to offer a
full range of switched public telephone services to its customers. In
addition, in countries which enact legislation intended to deregulate the
telecommunications sector, there may be significant delays in the adoption of
implementing regulations and uncertainties as to the implementation of the
deregulatory programs which could delay or make more expensive the Company's
entry into such additional markets. The ability of the Company to enter a
particular market and provide telecommunications services, particularly in
Mexico and other developing countries, is dependent upon the extent to which
the regulations in a particular market permit new entrants. In some countries,
regulators may make subjective judgments in awarding licenses and permits,
without any legal recourse for unsuccessful applicants. In the event the
Company is able to gain entry to such a market, no assurances can be given
that the Company will be able to provide a full range of services in such
market, that it will not have to significantly modify its operations to comply
with changes in the regulatory environment in such market, or that any such
changes will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's business,
results of operations or financial condition.
 
CONTROL OF THE COMPANY
 
  After completion of this Offering, the executive officers and directors of
the Company will continue to beneficially own      shares of Common Stock,
representing  % of the Common Stock, including options to purchase     shares
of Common Stock exercisable on or prior to October  , 1996. The executive
officers and directors have also been granted options to purchase an
additional      shares of Common Stock which vest after October  , 1996. Of
these amounts, Mr. K. Paul Singh, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer owns      shares of Common Stock and options to purchase an additional
    shares, none of which vests and is exercisable before October  , 1996. In
addition, the Soros/Chatterjee Group owns     shares and has the right to
acquire an additional     shares (assuming they exercise their rights to
acquire these shares at the time of the consummation of the Offering). As a
result, if they act as a group, the executive officers, directors and the
Soros/Chatterjee Group will exercise significant influence over such matters
as the
 
                                      15

<PAGE>
 
election of the directors of the Company, amendments to the Company's charter,
other fundamental corporate transactions such as mergers, asset sales, and the
sale of the Company, and otherwise the direction of the Company's business and
affairs. See "Principal Stockholders" and "Description of Capital Stock."
 
HOLDING COMPANY STRUCTURE; RELIANCE ON SUBSIDIARIES FOR DIVIDENDS
 
  Primus is a holding company, the principal assets of which are its operating
subsidiaries in the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom and Mexico.
As a holding company, the Company's internal sources of funds to meet its cash
needs, including payment of expenses, are dividends and other permitted
payments from its direct and indirect subsidiaries, as well as its own credit
arrangements. The ability of the Company's operating subsidiaries to pay
dividends or make other payments to Primus may be restricted by the terms of
various credit arrangements entered into by such operating subsidiaries, as
well as statutory and other legal restrictions, and such payments may have
adverse tax consequences. The failure to pay any such dividends or make any
such other payments would restrict Primus's ability to utilize cash flow from
one subsidiary to cover shortfalls in working capital at another subsidiary
and could otherwise have a material adverse effect upon the Company's
business, financial condition and results of operations.
 
ABSENCE OF PRIOR PUBLIC MARKET; DETERMINATION OF PUBLIC OFFERING PRICE;
POSSIBLE VOLATILITY OF STOCK PRICE
 
  Prior to this Offering, there has been no public market for the Common
Stock, and there can be no assurance that following this Offering, an active
trading market will develop or, if developed, will be maintained. The initial
public offering price of the Common Stock offered hereby was determined by
negotiations between the Company and the Representatives (as herein defined)
of the Underwriters and may bear no relationship to the price at which the
Common Stock will trade after completion of this Offering. For factors
considered in determining the initial public offering price, see
"Underwriting." Historically, the market prices for securities of emerging
companies in the telecommunications industry have been highly volatile. After
completion of this Offering, the market price of the Common Stock could be
subject to significant fluctuations in response to various factors and events,
including the liquidity of the market for the Common Stock, variations in the
Company's quarterly operating results, regulatory or other changes (both
domestic and international) affecting the telecommunications industry
generally, announcements of business developments by the Company or its
competitors, the addition of customers in connection with acquisitions,
changes in the cost of long distance service or other operating costs and
changes in general market conditions.
 
ANTI-TAKEOVER PROVISIONS
 
  Prior to the completion of this Offering, the Company's Amended and Restated
Certificate of Incorporation (the "Certificate of Incorporation") and Amended
and Restated By-Laws (the "By-Laws") will be amended to include certain
provisions which may have the effect of delaying, deterring or preventing a
future takeover or change in control of the Company unless such takeover or
change in control is approved by the Company's Board of Directors. Such
provisions may also render the removal of directors and management more
difficult. Specifically, the Company's Certificate of Incorporation or By-Laws
will be amended to provide for a classified Board of Directors serving
staggered three-year terms, restrictions on who may call a special meeting of
stockholders and a prohibition on stockholder action by written consent. In
addition, the Company's Board of Directors has the authority to issue up to
2,000,000 additional shares of preferred stock (the "Preferred Stock") and to
determine the price, rights, preferences, and privileges of those shares
without any further vote or actions by the stockholders. The rights of the
holders of Common Stock will be subject to, and may be adversely affected by,
the rights of the holders of any Preferred Stock that may be issued in the
future. The issuance of such additional shares of Preferred Stock, while
potentially providing desirable flexibility in connection with possible
acquisitions and serving other corporate purposes, could have the effect of
making it more difficult for a third party to acquire, or may discourage a
third party from attempting to acquire, a majority of the outstanding voting
stock of the Company. The Company has no present intention to issue such
additional shares of Preferred Stock. In addition, the Company is subject to
the anti-takeover provisions of Section 203 of the Delaware General
 
                                      16

<PAGE>
 
Corporation Law (the "DGCL"), which will prohibit the Company from engaging in
a "business combination" with an "interested stockholder" for a period of three
years after the date of the transaction in which the person became an
interested stockholder unless the business combination is approved in a
prescribed manner. The application of Section 203 also could have the effect of
delaying or preventing a change of control of the Company. Furthermore, certain
provisions of the Company's By-Laws, including provisions that provide that the
exact number of directors shall be determined by a majority of the Board of
Directors, that vacancies on the Board of Directors may be filled by a majority
vote of the directors then in office, though less than a quorum, and that limit
the ability of new majority stockholders to remove directors, all of which may
have the effect of delaying or preventing changes in control or management of
the Company, which could adversely affect the market price of the Company's
Common Stock. Additionally, certain Federal regulations require prior approval
of transfers of control which could also have the effect of delaying, deferring
or preventing a change of control. See "Business--Government Regulations." See
"Management--Classified Board of Directors," "Description of Capital Stock" and
"Business--Government Regulation."
 
SHARES ELIGIBLE FOR FUTURE SALE
 
  Sales of a substantial number of shares of Common Stock in the public market
after this Offering could adversely affect the market price of the shares of
Common Stock. In addition to the       shares of Common Stock offered hereby
which will be freely tradeable, an additional       shares will become eligible
for public sale beginning 180 days after the effective date of the Registration
Statement of which this Prospectus forms a part (the "Effective Date"), subject
to the provisions of Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act. The volume
limitations of Rule 144 will apply to the sale of all of such shares held by
affiliates of the Company. Following this Offering, sales of substantial
amounts of shares of Common Stock in the public market, or even the potential
for such sales, could adversely affect the prevailing market price of the
Common Stock and impair the Company's ability to raise capital through the sale
of equity securities. See "Principal Stockholders" and "Shares Eligible for
Future Sale."
 
DILUTION
 
  Purchasers of Common Stock in this Offering will experience immediate and
substantial dilution in net tangible book value of $    per share (assuming an
initial public offering price of $    per share). See "Dilution."
 
                                       17

<PAGE>
 

                                USE OF PROCEEDS
 
  The net proceeds from the Offering will be approximately $    million ($
million if the Underwriter's over-allotment option is exercised in full),
based on an assumed public offering price of $    per share, less underwriting
discounts and commissions and estimated expenses payable by the Company. Up to
$50 million of the net proceeds will be used to expand the Network, including
purchasing transmission equipment facilities and support systems,
international fiber capacity and satellite earth station facilities for new
and existing routes. The remaining net proceeds will be used to fund operating
losses and for working capital and other general corporate purposes. The net
proceeds also may be used for investments in potential joint ventures,
strategic alliances or acquisitions, although the Company is not currently
party to any agreement or understanding relating to any such transaction.
 
  The Company also may use a portion of the net proceeds to repay certain
existing indebtedness as it matures, including A$9.0 million of indebtedness
incurred as a portion of the purchase price for Axicorp, which is interest-
free and matures February 17, 1997 subject to extension at the Company's
option for an additional year at the prime rate plus one percent.
 
  The Company believes that the net proceeds from the Offering will be
sufficient, together with the net proceeds from the Private Equity Sale,
borrowing capacity under an expected line of credit, available capital lease
financing and cash flow from operations to meet the Company's working capital,
capital expenditure and other cash needs for the next 18 months. The Company
is currently in discussions to obtain a line of credit to provide it with
additional liquidity, although no assurance can be given that such a line of
credit can be obtained on satisfactory terms, if at all.
 
  Pending use of the net proceeds for the above purposes, the Company intends
to invest such funds in short-term investment grade securities or shares of
investment companies investing primarily in such securities.

                                   DILUTION
 
  The pro forma net tangible book value of the Company at June 30, 1996 was
$   , or $    per share of Common Stock. "Net tangible book value" per share
represents the amount of total tangible assets of the Company reduced by the
amount of its total liabilities and divided by the total number of shares of
Common Stock outstanding. The pro forma net tangible book value per share as
of June 30, 1996 gives effect to the Private Equity Sale, Preferred Stock
Conversion and Stock Split. Without taking into account any other change in
such pro forma net tangible book value after June 30, 1996, other than to give
effect to the sale by the Company of     shares of Common Stock offered hereby
at an assumed public offering price of $    per share and the receipt of the
estimated net proceeds therefrom, the pro forma as adjusted net tangible book
value of the Company at June 30, 1996 would have been approximately $   , or
$    per share of Common Stock. This represents an immediate increase in such
pro forma net tangible book value of $    per share of Common Stock to
existing stockholders and an immediate dilution of $    per share of Common
Stock to persons purchasing shares at the public offering price ("New
Investors").
 
  The following table illustrates this per share dilution:

  The following table summarizes, on a pro forma as adjusted basis as of June
30, 1996, the differences between the existing holders of Common Stock,
including as a result of the Private Equity Sale and the Preferred Stock
Conversion, and the New Investors with respect to the number of shares of
Common Stock purchased from the Company, the total consideration to the
Company and the average price per share paid:

  The above computations assume no exercise of any outstanding options or
warrants. At June 30, 1996, there were outstanding options to purchase
shares of Common Stock at a weighted average exercise price of $    per share.
Additionally, on July 31, 1996, the Company issued the Soros/Chatterjee
Warrants, which may be exercised for up to     shares of Common Stock,
assuming such warrants were exercised on the date of the Offering at an
assumed exercise price of $  . The actual number of shares of Common Stock
issuable upon exercise of the Soros/Chatterjee Warrants will be     shares
plus an indeterminate number of shares having a fair market value of $10
million as of the date of exercise. To the extent outstanding options or the
Soros/Chatterjee Warrants are exercised, there will be further dilution to new
investors. See "Certain Transactions--Private Equity Sale," "Management--Stock
Option Plans" and Notes 8 and 13 to the Consolidated Financial Statements of
the Company.
 

                                DIVIDEND POLICY
 
  To date, the Company has not paid any dividends on its capital stock. The
Company currently intends to retain any future earnings to fund operations and
the continued development of its business and, therefore, does not anticipate
paying any cash dividends on its Common Stock in the foreseeable future.
Future cash dividends, if any, will be determined by the Board of Directors,
and will be based upon the Company's earnings, capital requirements, financial
condition and other factors deemed relevant by the Board of Directors.

                     MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS
               OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
  The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the
financial statements and notes thereto contained elsewhere in this Prospectus.
 
OVERVIEW
 
  Primus is a multinational telecommunications company that focuses on the
provision of international and domestic long distance services. The Company
seeks to capitalize on the increasing business and consumer demand for
international telecommunications services generated by the globalization of
world economies and the worldwide trend toward deregulation of the
telecommunications sector. The Company has targeted North America, Asia-
Pacific and Europe as its primary service regions. The Company currently
provides services in the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom,
which are the most deregulated countries within the Targeted Regions and which
serve as regional hubs for expansion into additional markets within the
Targeted Regions. As part of the execution of this strategy, the Company has
commenced operations in Canada and Mexico. The Company expects to expand into
additional markets as deregulation occurs and the Company is permitted to
offer a full range of switched public telephone services.
 
  The Company was founded in February 1994 and through the first half of 1995
was a development stage enterprise involved in various start-up activities
including raising capital, obtaining licenses, acquiring equipment, leasing
space, developing markets and recruiting and training personnel. The Company
began generating revenue during March 1995. On March 1, 1996 the Company
acquired Axicorp, the fourth largest telecommunications provider in Australia.
The acquisition of Axicorp has had a material effect on the Company's results
of operations for the six months ended June 30, 1996. The acquisition of
Axicorp furthers the Company's objectives by providing a substantial customer
base and significant hub location in the Asia-Pacific market.
 
  The Company is investing substantial resources to transform Axicorp's
strategy and operations to those of a facilities-based carrier focused on the
provision of international and domestic long distance services. Prior to the
acquisition, Axicorp was a switchless reseller of long distance, local and
cellular service. Since the acquisition, the Company has acquired five
switches for use in Australia, all of which are expected to be operational by
the end of the first quarter of 1997, and has focused on increasing the number
of higher-margin, higher-volume business customers with significant
international long-distance traffic. As part of its increasing focus on
business customers, the Company is increasing the direct sales force of
Axicorp and lessening its reliance on marketing through associations. The
Company has experienced and expects to continue to experience lower gross
margin as a percentage of net revenue for Axicorp's local switched and
cellular services, as compared to long distance services.
 
  Net revenue is derived from the number of minutes billed by the Company and
is recorded upon completion of calls. The Company generally prices its
services at a savings compared to the major carriers operating in the Targeted
Regions, which allows the Company to offer competitive pricing to its
customers. The Company's net revenue in the United States is derived from
carrying a mix of business, consumer and wholesale carrier long distance
traffic. In Australia, net revenue is currently derived equally from the
provision of long distance and from local and cellular services, primarily to
a broad mix of small- and medium-sized business customers and ethnic
residential consumers. In the United Kingdom, net revenue is derived from the
provision of long distance services, primarily to ethnic residential
consumers, as well as to small- and medium-sized businesses. The Company seeks
to continue to expand its net revenue from internal growth through focused
sales and marketing efforts toward small- and medium-sized businesses with
significant international long distance traffic and, ethnic residential
consumers and, on a wholesale basis, other telecommunications carriers and
resellers with international traffic in the Target Regions.
 
 
                                      26

  Prices in the long distance industry in the United States and the United
Kingdom have declined in recent years and as competition continues to
increase, the Company believes that prices are likely to continue to decrease.
Additionally, the Company believes that because deregulatory influences only
recently have begun to affect non-U.S. and non-U.K. telecommunications
markets, the deregulatory trend in such markets is expected to result in
greater competition which could adversely affect net revenue per minute and
gross margin as a percentage of net revenue. The Company believes, however,
that such decreases in prices will be at least partially offset by increased
telecommunications usage and decreased costs.
 
  Cost of revenue is primarily comprised of costs incurred from other domestic
and foreign telecommunications carriers to access, transport and terminate
calls. The majority of the Company's cost of revenue is variable, based upon
the number of minutes of use, with transmission and termination costs being
the Company's most significant expense. As the Company increases the portion
of traffic transmitted over its own facilities, cost of revenue increasingly
will reflect lease, ownership and maintenance costs of the Network. In order
to manage such costs, the Company pursues a flexible approach with respect to
Network expansion. The Company initially obtains transmission capacity on a
variable-cost, per-minute leased basis, next acquires additional capacity on a
fixed-cost basis when traffic volume makes such a commitment cost-effective,
and ultimately purchases and operates its own facilities only when traffic
levels justify such investment. The Company also seeks to lower its cost of
revenue through (a) optimizing the routing of calls over the least cost
routing, (b) increasing volumes on its fixed cost leased lines, thereby
spreading the allocation of fixed costs over a larger number of minutes, (c)
negotiating lower variable usage based costs with domestic and foreign service
providers and negotiating additional and lower cost correspondent agreements
with foreign PTTs, and (d) continuing to expand the Network when traffic
volumes justify such investment. See "Risk Factors--Managing Rapid Growth" and
"Business--Network."
 
  Typical of the long distance telecommunications industry, the Company
generally realizes a higher gross margin as a percentage of net revenue on its
international compared to its domestic long distance services and expects to
realize a higher gross margin as a percentage of net revenue on its retail
services compared to those realized on its wholesale services. In addition,
the Company generally realizes a higher gross margin as a percentage of net
revenue on its long distance services as compared to those realized on local
switched and cellular services. Although, after giving effect to the
acquisition of Axicorp, the Company's wholesale services represent only a
small percentage of its net revenue, the Company expects such services to
represent a significantly larger percentage of net revenue over time. While
wholesale services generate a lower gross margin as a percentage of net
revenue, the additional traffic volume of such wholesale customers improves
the utilization of the Network and allows the Company to obtain greater volume
discounts from its suppliers than it otherwise would realize. The Company's
overall gross margin as a percentage of net revenue may fluctuate in the
future based on its relative volumes of international versus domestic long
distance services and wholesale versus retail long distance services.
 
  Selling, general and administrative expenses are comprised primarily of
salaries and benefits, commissions, occupancy costs, sales and marketing
expenses, advertising and administrative costs. These expenses have been
increasing over the past year, which is consistent with the development stage
nature of the Company, expansion of the United States and United Kingdom
operations, and the transformation of Axicorp's operations. The Company
expects this trend to continue and believes that additional selling, general
and administrative expenses will be necessary to support the expansion of
sales and marketing efforts and operations.
 
  Since its inception, the Company has made, and expects to continue to make,
significant investments in the development of its operations in its Targeted
Regions and the development and expansion of the Network. The costs of
developing its operations and expanding the Network, including the purchase
and installation of switches, sales and marketing expenses and other
organizational costs, are significant. In addition, increased capital
investment activity in the future can be expected to affect the Company's
operating results in the near term due to increased depreciation charges and
interest expense in connection with borrowings to fund such expenditures,
which costs will be incurred in advance of the realization of the expected
improvements in
 
                                      27

<PAGE>
 
operating results from such investments. Such costs and investment activity
have resulted in negative cash flows and operating losses for the Company on
an historical basis, which are expected to continue to increase in the near
future as the Company uses the proceeds of the Offering to accelerate the
expansion of its business and the build-out of the Network. The Company
currently anticipates spending approximately $50 million on the improvement
and expansion of the Network during the next 18 months. See "--Liquidity and
Capital Resources" and "Use of Proceeds."
 
  Although the Company's functional currency is the U.S. dollar, the majority
of the Company's net revenue is derived from its sales and operations outside
the United States. On a pro forma basis, approximately 94% and 99% of the
Company's net revenue was earned, and approximately 91% and 97% of the
Company's operating costs was incurred, in currencies other than the U.S.
dollar for the six months ended June 30, 1996 and the year ended December 31,
1995, respectively. In the future, the Company expects to continue to derive
the majority of its net revenue and incur the majority of its operating costs
outside the United States. The international scope of the Company's net
revenue and operating costs creates numerous offsetting positions which the
Company believes reduce its exposure to foreign currency fluctuations relative
to the U.S. dollar. The Company historically has not engaged, and does not
currently contemplate engaging, in hedging transactions to mitigate foreign
exchange risks. See "Risk Factors--Risks Associated with International
Operations."
 
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
  As a result of the Company's acquisition of Axicorp on March 1, 1996 and the
development stage nature of the Company in the first quarter of 1995, the
Company believes that a comparison of the historical results of operations for
the six-month periods ended June 30, 1995 and 1996 is not meaningful and that
such results are not necessarily indicative of results for any future period.
Accordingly, the historical results of operations are supplemented with a more
extensive discussion of the pro forma results of operations for the six months
ended June 30, 1995 and 1996 and the pro forma quarterly results of operations
for each of the six quarters in the period ended June 30, 1996, which results
give effect to the acquisition of Axicorp as if it had occurred on January 1,
1995. A discussion of the Company's historical results of operations for the
six months ending June 30, 1995 and 1996, the period from inception (February
4, 1994) through December 31, 1994 and the year ended December 31, 1995, and a
discussion of Axicorp's historical results of operations for the years ended
March 31, 1995 and 1996 follow the discussion of the Company's pro forma
results of operations.

  Net revenue increased 92%, or $43.9 million, from $47.9 million for the six
months ended June 30, 1995 to $91.8 million for the six months ended June 30,
1996. The Australian net revenue increased 80%, or $37.9 million, from $47.7
million to $85.6 million. The increase was attributable to growth in minutes
of traffic primarily from business customers, as well as an increased number
of cellular customers. Non-Australian net revenue was $6.2 million for the six
months ended June 30, 1996 as compared to minimal revenue of $0.2 million for
the six months ended June 30, 1995. The increase was attributable to a greater
number of customers in all non-Australian geographical regions of the
Company's business and an increase in minutes of use to higher rate per minute
countries, including India, Iran, Japan and Argentina. As the Company
continues to build its sales and marketing staff, establish additional carrier
arrangements and expand the Network, the Company expects the minutes of
traffic and associated revenue to continue to increase.
 
  Cost of revenue increased 95%, or $40.8 million, from $43.1 million for the
six months ended June 30, 1995 to $83.9 million for the six months ended June
30, 1996. The increase was a direct reflection of the increased traffic the
Company carried for customers. The Australian cost of revenue increased 79%,
or $34.1 million, from $42.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 1995 to
$77.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 1996. The Australian cost of
revenue increase is primarily driven by increased traffic and, to a lesser
extent, lower tariff rate discounts implemented by Telstra in February 1996.
The Australian cost of revenue as a percentage of revenue remained constant at
90%. The non-Australian cost of revenue increased $6.8 million as a result of
increased traffic. Cost of revenue as a percentage of net revenue increased
from 90% to 91%. The non-Australian cost of revenue as a percentage of net
revenue increased as a result of the lack of return traffic associated with
newly initiated correspondent agreements, and traffic being carried on more
expensive carriers because of lack of adequate capacity with lower cost
carriers.
 
  Gross margin increased 64%, or $3.1 million, from $4.8 million for the six
months ended June 30, 1995 to $7.9 million for the six months ended June 30,
1996. The Australian gross margin percentage remained constant at 10%. The
non-Australian operations reported a gross deficit of $0.8 million.

  Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 64%, or $3.4 million,
from $5.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 1995 to $8.8 million for
the six months ended June 30, 1996. The Australian operations increased
selling, general and administrative expenses $1.4 million as a result of
increased salaries and benefits, commissions and administrative expenses to
support the continued growth in the business. The Australian selling, general
and administrative expenses as a percentage of net revenue decreased from 10%
to 7% for the six months ended June 30, 1995 and 1996, respectively, as a
result of fixed costs being spread over an increasing revenue base. The non-
Australian operations account for the remaining increase of $2.0 million due
to growth in sales and marketing staffing levels, network operations expenses,
and customer service costs.
 
  Depreciation and amortization increased 25%, or $0.2 million, from $0.9
million for the six months ended June 30, 1995 to $1.1 million for the six
months ended June 30, 1996. The increase was primarily attributable to
depreciation for $0.7 million for capital additions associated with the
development of the customer billing system in Australia and $0.9 million of
capital additions for network equipment in the non-Australian markets.
 
  Interest expense increased 6% as a result of additional capital leases to
finance network switching equipment in the United States, as well as the
incurrence of $2.0 million of debt from Teleglobe in February of 1996.
 
  Interest income increased from a negligible amount in the six months ended
June 30, 1995 to $0.2 million in the six months ended June 30, 1996 as a
result of higher average cash balances invested overnight generated from the
private equity placements in December 1995 and February 1996.
 
  Other income (expense) is comprised of a foreign currency transaction loss
of $0.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 1996 associated with the
debt related to the acquisition of Axicorp, which is denominated in Australian
dollars. Fluctuations in the currency exchange rates between the Australian
and U.S. dollar will cause currency transaction gains or losses which will be
recognized in the current period results of operations.
 
  Income taxes is based on the income before taxes generated by Axicorp and
payable to the Australian federal government. There was no income tax
provision (benefit) reflected in either period for the non-Australian
operations as pre-tax losses were incurred in both periods and a full
valuation reserve was applied to the tax benefit.

 Quarterly Results of Operations
 
  The following table sets forth unaudited pro forma consolidated statement of
operations data for each of the six fiscal quarters in the period ending June
30, 1996 and has been prepared assuming the acquisition of Axicorp occurred as
of January 1, 1995. The pro forma quarterly information has been derived from,
and should be read in conjunction with, the Consolidated Financial Statements
of the Company, the Financial Statements of Axicorp and the notes thereto
included elsewhere in this Prospectus, and in management's opinion, reflects
all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary
for a fair presentation of the information for the quarters presented. The
operating results for any quarter are not necessarily indicative of results
for any future period.

</TABLE>

 
  Quarterly net revenue increased from $20.7 million in the quarter ended
March 31, 1995 to $48.3 million in the quarter ended June 30, 1996. The
Australian net revenue growth in each quarter was due to an increase in
traffic volume primarily as a result of an increase in the business customer
base. The lower rate of growth in Australian net revenue from the quarter
ended September 30, 1995 as compared to the subsequent two quarters is
primarily a result of management's shift in focus to the sale of Axicorp to
the Company and, in the quarter ended June 30, 1996, management's strategic
decision to focus on higher-margin, higher-volume business
 
                                      31

<PAGE>
 
customers and an increase in the level of competition. The lower rate of
growth in the Company's net revenue from the quarter ended September 30, 1995
as compared to the three subsequent quarters is primarily a result of
management's strategic decision to focus on higher-margin, higher-volume
business customers and an increase in the level of competition in Australia,
offset by an increase in the traffic volumes primarily associated with
increased carrier traffic in the United States and the introduction of service
in the United Kingdom.
 
  Quarterly gross margin percentages have trended downward during the six
quarters from 11% in the quarter ended March 31, 1995 to 8% in the quarter
ended June 30, 1996. The reduction in the quarterly gross margin percentage in
each of the quarters of 1995 was primarily a result of the lower tariff rate
discounts implemented by Telstra in the Australian market. In the next two
quarters, gross margin percentages were favorably affected by, in Australia,
lower cost per minute of cellular service due to volume discounts and, in the
last quarter, current management's focus on higher-margin, higher-volume
business customers, offset by negative gross margin due to start-up of non-
Australian operations.
 
  The Company's quarterly selling, general and administrative expenses have
trended upward during the six month period from $2.6 million in the quarter
ended March 31, 1995 to $4.8 million in the quarter ended June 30, 1996. The
quarterly selling, general and administrative expense increase is reflective
of the worldwide growth in the Company's operations, including increased
personnel costs, network operations costs, sales and marketing expenses and
internal billing systems development costs. The selling, general and
administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 1995 increased due to the
conversion costs associated with the Australian operations providing direct
billing and customer service to its customer base. In the quarter ended June
30, 1996, selling, general and administrative expenses increased as a
percentage of net revenue due to substantial expenditures incurred in the
commencement of non-Australian operations.
 
  Quarterly depreciation and amortization reflects an increasing trend as a
result of the Company's continued investment in property and equipment
primarily associated with the expansion of the Network. This trend is expected
to continue in the foreseeable future.
 
HISTORICAL RESULTS--PRIMUS
 
 Results of Operations for the Six Months Ended June 30, 1996 Compared to the
Six Months Ended June 30, 1995
 
  Net revenue increased $65.2 million, from $0.2 million for the six months
ended June 30, 1995 to $65.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 1996.
The growth was attributable to $59.3 million of net revenue associated with
Axicorp from the purchase date of March 1, 1996 through June 30, 1996. The
remaining $5.9 million of net revenue growth was associated primarily with the
commencement of the Company's United States and United Kingdom operations.
 
  Cost of revenue increased $60.0 million, from $0.2 million for the six
months ended June 30, 1995 to $60.2 million for the six months ended June 30,
1996 as a direct result of the increased net revenue. Axicorp's cost of
revenue for the four months ended June 30, 1996 was $53.2 million, or 90% of
Axicorp's net revenue during such period, while the non-Australian cost of
revenue for the full six months ended June 30, 1996 was $7.0 million or 113%
of non-Australian net revenue. The non-Australian cost of revenue reflects the
start-up nature of the Network and traffic being carried on more expensive
carriers until adequate capacity on lower cost carriers could be established.
In addition, the Company's cost of revenue as a percentage of net revenue was
effected by the lack of return traffic associated with newly-initiated
correspondent agreements.
 
  Selling, general and administrative expenses increased from $0.7 million to
$6.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 1995 to June 30, 1996.
Approximately $4.0 million of the increase was attributable to the four months
of activity associated with Axicorp and the remaining $2.0 million related to
the non-Australian operations as a result of increased staffing levels,
increased sales and marketing activity and network operation costs. The non-
Australian selling, general and administrative costs as a percentage of net
revenue for the six months ended June 30, 1996 was 44%, which is reflective of
the growth stage of such business. The Australian selling, general and
administrative expense as a percentage of net revenue was 7% for the four
months from acquisition to June 30, 1996.
 
                                      32

<PAGE>
 
  Depreciation and amortization increased $0.7 million, from $0.1 million for
the six months ended June 30, 1995 to $0.8 million for the six months ended
June 30, 1996. The majority of the increase was a result of the acquisition of
Axicorp and was comprised of amortization of goodwill and the customer lists
which totaled $0.5 million. The remaining increase is associated with
depreciation related to Axicorp's assets and increased depreciation expense
for the Company as a result of additional capital expenditures for switching
and network related equipment.
 
  Interest expense increased $0.3 million as a result of the additional debt
incurred by the Company in connection with the acquisition of Axicorp, which
totaled $8.4 million as of June 30, 1996, and was outstanding for the four-
month period from March 1, 1996 (the date of acquisition) to June 30, 1996.
Additionally, the Company incurred increased interest expense as a result of
the issuance of a $2.0 million note payable to a stockholder (Teleglobe) in
February 1996.
 
  Interest income of $0.1 million during the six months ended June 30, 1996
relates to the temporary investment of the funds received from the private
placements of equity made by the Company in 1995 and 1996.
 
  Other income (expense) of $0.3 million for the six months ended June 30,
1996 related to foreign currency transaction losses on the Australian dollar-
denominated debt incurred by the Company payable to the sellers for its
acquisition of Axicorp as a result in the appreciation of the Australian
dollar against the U.S. dollar during the period.
 
  Income taxes amount was fully attributable to the operations of Axicorp for
the four months from the date of purchase, and represented the amount of
expense for Australian federal government taxes.
 
 Results of Operations for the Year Ended December 31, 1995 Compared to the
Period from Inception (February 4, 1994) to December 31, 1994
 
  Net revenue and cost of revenue in 1995 were $1.2 million and $1.4 million,
respectively. During the period ended December 31, 1994, the Company did not
have net revenue or cost of revenue as it was in the development stage and
involved in various start-up activities including raising capital, obtaining
licenses, acquiring equipment, leasing space, developing markets, and
recruiting and training personnel. In March 1995, the Company began generating
net revenue and associated cost of revenue.
 
  Gross deficit for 1995 was $0.2 million. As the Company began generating
revenue in 1995, there were fixed network costs that were not offset by the
net revenue generated.
 
  Selling, general and administrative expenses increased from $0.6 million in
1994 to $2.0 million in 1995. The increase was primarily due to additional
costs incurred to support the formation of the Company's administrative,
management, sales and operations personnel.
 
  Depreciation and amortization increased to $0.2 million in 1995. The
increase in depreciation and amortization expense was directly related to the
purchase of Network equipment, including the Company's switch in Washington,
D.C.
 
HISTORICAL RESULTS--AXICORP
 
 Results of Operations for the Twelve Months Ended March 31, 1996 Compared to
the Twelve Months Ended March 31, 1995
 
  The audited financial statements of Axicorp included in this Prospectus
cover the twelve month period ended March 31, 1996 and the nine month period
ended March 31, 1995. In order to provide a more meaningful presentation of
the changes in the operations of Axicorp, the unaudited results of operations
for the three months ended June 30, 1994 have been combined with the audited
results for the nine-month period ended March 31, 1995 to arrive at a twelve-
month period ended March 31, 1995 ("fiscal 1995") for purposes of comparison
to the audited twelve-month period ended March 31, 1996 ("fiscal 1996").

  Net revenue increased 194%, or $95.2 million, from $49.1 million in fiscal
1995 to $144.3 million in fiscal 1996 primarily due to an increase in volume of
traffic as a result of an increased number of business customers. Net revenue
also increased as a result of an increase in the number of cellular customers.
The Company became one of four authorized resellers of Telstra's analog and
digital cellular service in May 1995.
 
  Cost of revenue increased 198%, or $87.4 million, from $44.3 million in
fiscal 1995 to $131.7 million in fiscal 1996. The increase was attributable to
increased minutes of use, a higher percentage of net revenue being attributable
to cellular services, which have lower margins than non-cellular services, and
price reductions by Axicorp in response to lower tariff rate discounts
implemented by Telstra which were effective in February 1996. Cost of revenue
is comprised of those costs associated with the transmission and termination of
traffic by Telstra. As a percentage of net revenue, cost of revenue increased
from 90% in fiscal 1995 to 91% in fiscal 1996.
 
  Gross margin increased 163%, or $7.8 million, from $4.8 million in fiscal
1995 to $12.6 million in fiscal 1996. As a percentage of revenue, gross margin
decreased from 10% in fiscal 1995 to 9% in fiscal 1996 as a result of higher
cost of revenue.
 
  Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 143%, or $6.8 million,
from $4.8 million in fiscal 1995 to $11.6 million in fiscal 1996. The increase
consisted of personnel costs, network operations cost, sales and marketing
expenses and internal billing systems development costs which were attributable
to the overall growth in the business during this period. As a percentage of
net revenue, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased from 10% in
fiscal 1995 to 8% in fiscal 1996, primarily as a result of fixed costs being
spread over a higher revenue base.
 
  Depreciation and amortization increased to $0.2 million in fiscal 1996. The
entire increase was attributable to $0.7 million of fiscal 1996 asset
expenditures primarily related to the internal development of Axicorp's billing
system and fiscal 1995 asset purchases of $0.3 million having a full year of
depreciation and amortization.

<PAGE>
 
  Interest income increased $0.2 million from fiscal 1995 to fiscal 1996 as a
result of higher average cash and cash equivalent balances generated primarily
from cash generated from operations.
 
  Income taxes represented the Australian federal statutory tax rate applied
to income before income taxes, net of permanently non-deductible items.
 
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
 
  The Company's liquidity requirements arise from working capital needs,
purchases of network equipment including switches, peripheral equipment, and
international fiber cable capacity and interest and principal payments on
outstanding indebtedness, including capital leases. From time to time the
Company evaluates acquisitions of businesses which complement the business of
the Company. Depending on the cash requirements of potential transactions, the
Company may finance such transactions with a portion of the proceeds of the
Offering, bank borrowings or its cash flow from operations, or the Company may
raise additional funds through other financing vehicles. The Company, however,
has no present understanding, commitment or agreement with respect to any
acquisition, and is not currently involved in negotiations. There can be no
assurance that if the Company were to pursue such an opportunity, any such
acquisition would occur or that the funds to finance any such acquisition
would be available on reasonable terms, if at all.
 
  Historically, the Company's working capital and liquidity needs have been
funded from the private placement of equity securities and, to a lesser
extent, through stockholder loans and capital leases. As of June 30, 1996, the
Company had a working capital deficit of $13.5 million primarily attributable
to the current portion of long-term obligations of $10.6 million. On July 31,
1996, the Company sold $15.8 million, net of transaction costs, of additional
equity in the Private Equity Sale which, on a pro forma basis as of June 30,
1996, would result in working capital of $2.3 million.
 
  The Company currently anticipates spending approximately $50 million on the
improvement and expansion of the Network during the next 18 months, including
$10 million of capital expenditures in the remainder of 1996, which includes
the purchase of switches and related peripheral equipment for the
implementation of international gateways in Los Angeles and New York. The
expected 1997 and 1998 capital expenditures include switches, network
equipment, international fiber cable capacity, and other international
facilities.
 
  The Company currently is in discussions to obtain a line of credit to
provide it with additional funding to meet its capital requirements and will
use capital lease financings as appropriate. There can be no assurance that
the Company will be able to obtain a line of credit or capital lease financing
on commercially reasonable terms, if at all. The Company believes that the net
proceeds from the Offering, together with the net proceeds from the Private
Equity Sale, borrowing capacity under an expected line of credit, available
vendor financing and cash flow from operations, will be sufficient to fund the
Company's working capital, capital expenditures and other cash needs for the
next 18 months. Additional funding through the incurrence of debt or sale of
additional equity will be required to meet the Company's growth plans beyond
the second quarter of 1998, although there can be no assurance that such
additional funds can be obtained on acceptable terms, if at all. If necessary
funds are not available, the Company's business and results of operations and
the future expansion of the business could be materially adversely affected.

                                  BUSINESS
 
GENERAL
 
  Primus is a multinational telecommunications company that focuses on the
provision of international and domestic long distance services. The Company
seeks to capitalize on the increasing business and consumer demand for
international telecommunications services generated by the globalization of
world economies and the worldwide trend toward deregulation of the
telecommunications sector. The Company has targeted North America, Asia-
Pacific and Europe as its primary service regions. The Company currently
provides services in the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom,
which are the most deregulated countries within the Targeted Regions and which
serve as regional hubs for expansion into additional markets within the
Targeted Regions. As part of the execution of this strategy, the Company has
commenced operations in Canada and Mexico. The Company expects to expand into
additional markets as deregulation occurs and the Company is permitted to
offer a full range of switched public telephone services.
 
  For the year ended December 31, 1995 and the six months ended June 30, 1996,
the Company had pro forma net revenue of approximately $126 million and $92
million, respectively, after giving effect to the Company's March 1996
acquisition of Axicorp, the fourth largest telecommunications provider in
Australia. For the three months ended June 30, 1996, the Company had net
revenue of approximately $48 million. As of July 31, 1996, the Company had 221
full-time employees and approximately 24,000 customers.
 
  The Company targets, on a retail basis, small- and medium-sized businesses
with significant international long distance traffic and ethnic residential
consumers and, on a wholesale basis, other telecommunications carriers and
resellers with international traffic. The Company provides a broad array of
competitively priced telecommunications services, including international long
distance to over 200 countries, domestic long distance, international and
domestic private networks, prepaid and calling cards and toll-free services,
as well as local switched and cellular services in Australia. The Company
markets its services through a variety of channels, including direct sales,
independent agents, direct marketing and associations.
 
  The Company is implementing an international telecommunications Network to
reduce and control costs, improve service reliability and increase flexibility
to introduce new products and services. The Network currently consists of an
international gateway switch in Washington, D.C., points-of-presence in New
York and London, and leased transmission capacity connecting to the networks
of other international and domestic carriers. The Company also has
correspondent agreements with government-owned PTTs in India, Iran and
Honduras. The Company has installed three additional international gateway
switches in Melbourne, Sydney and Toronto, has acquired two international
gateway switches for installation in New York and Los Angeles and three other
switches for installation in Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth, all eight of which
are expected to be operational by the first quarter of 1997. The Company
expects to acquire an additional switch for installation in London and
additional switches and points-of-presence for installation in other major
metropolitan areas of the Targeted Regions. The Company expects to connect its
gateway switches between Sydney and Los Angeles with a trans-Pacific fiber-
optic cable link by the end of the first quarter of 1997. The Company also
intends to purchase additional switches and ownership in international fiber-
optic cables, install international gateway satellite earth station
facilities, lease additional transmission capacity and, where necessary,
obtain additional correspondent agreements.
 
INDUSTRY OVERVIEW
 
  General. The international long distance industry, which involves the
transmission of voice and data from the domestic telephone network of one
country to another, is undergoing a period of fundamental change that has
resulted, and is expected to continue to result, in significant growth in
usage of international telecommunication services. In 1994, the international
long distance industry accounted for $50 billion in revenues and 53 billion
minutes of use, up from $29 billion in revenues and 28 billion minutes of use
in 1989. Industry sources estimate that by the year 2000 this market will have
expanded to $93 billion in revenues and 111 billion minutes of use,
representing compound annual growth rates from 1994 of 11% and 13%,
respectively. The following chart illustrates the estimated total 1994
domestic and international revenues for long distance calls in the Operating
Hubs and Mexico:

<PAGE>
 
 
(PIE CHART SHOWING 1994 ESTIMATED TOTAL DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL REVENUE FOR
  LONG DISTANCE CALLS IN THE UNITED STATES, THE UNITED KINGDOM, AUSTRALIA AND
                                   MEXICO.)
 
 
 
  The Company believes the growth in international long distance services is
being driven by (i) increased demand for international telecommunications
services generated by the globalization of world economies and the worldwide
trend toward deregulation of the telecommunications sector, (ii) declining
prices and a wider choice of products and services driven by greater
competition resulting from privatization and deregulation, (iii) increased
telephone density and accessibility resulting from technological advances and
greater investment in telecommunications infrastructure, including deployment
of wireless networks, and (iv) increased international business and leisure
travel.
 
  The competition spurred by privatization and deregulation, in addition to
resulting in a wider choice of products and services, has resulted in lower
prices. The Company believes, however, that the lower price environment
resulting from the increase in competition has been more than offset by cost
decreases, as well as an increase in telecommunications usage. For example,
based on FCC data for the period 1989 through 1994, per minute settlement
payments by U.S. based carriers to PTTs fell 26%, from $0.70 per minute to
$0.52 per minute. Over this same period, however, per minute international
billed revenue fell only 5%, from $1.02 in 1989 to $0.97 in 1994. Therefore,
gross profit per international minute (before local access charges) grew from
$0.32 in 1989 to $0.45 in 1994, a 41% increase. Although there can be no
assurances, the Company believes that as settlement rates and costs for leased
capacity continue to decline, international long distance will continue to
provide high revenue and gross profit per minute.
 
  Classification of Service Providers. International long distance carriers
generally can be categorized according to ownership and use of transmission
facilities and switches. Although no carrier utilizes exclusively owned
facilities for the transmission of all of its long distance traffic, carriers
vary from being primarily facilities-based (i.e. they own and operate their
own land based or undersea cable and switches) to those that are purely
resellers of another carrier's transmission network. Generally, the first-tier
long distance companies (e.g., AT&T, MCI and Sprint in the United States;
British Telecom and Mercury in the United Kingdom; and Telstra and Optus in
Australia) are transmission facilities-based carriers that own and operate a
domestic fiber-based network. Second-tier long distance companies (e.g.,
Frontier and LCI in the United States; WorldCom and ACC in the United Kingdom;
and AAPT in Australia) own switching facilities but generally do not own cable
 
                                      37

<PAGE>
 
transmission facilities. The third-tier of the market consists of long
distance companies that are generally switchless resellers that rely on the
transmission facilities of other carriers.
 
  Regulatory and Competitive Environment. Prior to deregulation, the long
distance carriers in any particular country generally were government-owned
monopoly carriers, such as British Telecom in the United Kingdom, Telstra in
Australia and Telmex in Mexico. Deregulation of a particular
telecommunications market typically has begun with the introduction of a
second long distance carrier, followed by the authorization of multiple
carriers. In the United States, one of the first deregulated markets,
deregulation began in the 1960's with MCI's authorization to provide long
distance service and was followed in 1984 by AT&T's divestiture of the RBOCs
and, most recently, by the passage of the 1996 Telecommunications Act.
Deregulation has occurred elsewhere, such as in the United Kingdom, and is
being implemented in other countries, including Australia and Mexico.
 
  Call Dynamics. A long distance telephone call consists of three parts:
origination, transport and termination. Generally, a domestic long distance
call originates on a local exchange network and is transported to the network
of a long distance carrier. The call is then carried along the long distance
network to another local exchange network where the call is terminated. An
international long distance call is similar to a domestic long distance call,
but typically involves at least two long distance carriers: the first carrier
transports the call from the country of origination, and the second carrier
terminates the call in the country of termination. These long distance
telephone calls are classified as one of three types of traffic. A call made
from the United States to the United Kingdom is referred to as outbound
traffic for the United States carrier and inbound traffic for the United
Kingdom carrier. The third type of traffic, international transit traffic,
originates and terminates outside a particular country, but is transported
through that country on a carrier's network. Since most major international
fiber optic cable systems are connected to the United States, and
international long-distance prices are substantially lower in the United
States than in other countries, a large volume of international transit
traffic is routed through the United States.
 
  International calls are transported by land-based or undersea cable or by
microwave via satellites. A carrier can obtain voice circuits on cable systems
either through ownership or leases. Ownership in cables is acquired either
through Indefeasible Rights of Use ("IRUs") or Minimum Assignable Ownership
Units ("MAOUs"). The fundamental difference between an IRU holder and an owner
of MAOUs is that the IRU holder is not entitled to participate in management
decisions relating to the cable system. Between two countries, a carrier from
each country owns a "half-circuit" of a cable, essentially dividing the
ownership of the cable into two equal components. Additionally, any carrier
generally may lease circuits on a cable from another carrier. Unless a carrier
owns a satellite, satellite circuits also must be leased from one of several
existing satellite systems.
 
  Accounting Rate System. Under the accounting rate system (also known as the
settlement system), which is the traditional regulatory model, international
long distance traffic is exchanged under bilateral operating agreements, or
correspondent agreements, between carriers in two countries. Operating
agreements generally are three to five years in length and provide for the
termination of traffic in, and return traffic to, the carriers' respective
countries at a negotiated accounting rate, known as the Total Accounting Rate
("TAR"). In addition, operating agreements provide for network coordination
and accounting and settlement procedures between the carriers. Both carriers
are responsible for their own costs and expenses related to operating their
respective halves of the end-to-end international connection.
 
  Settlement costs, which equal one-half of the TAR, are the fees owed to
another international carrier for transporting traffic on its facilities.
Settlement costs are reciprocal between each party to an operating agreement
at a negotiated rate (which must be the same for all United States-based
carriers, unless the FCC approves an exception). For example, if a foreign
carrier charges a U.S. carrier $0.30 per minute to terminate a call in the
foreign country, the U.S. carrier would charge the foreign carrier the same
$0.30 per minute to terminate a call in the United States. Additionally, the
TAR is the same for all carriers transporting traffic into a particular
country, but varies from country to country. The term "settlement costs"
arises because carriers essentially pay each other on a net basis determined
by the difference between inbound and outbound traffic between them. The
following chart illustrates an international long distance call using the
settlement system:
 
                                      38

<PAGE>
 
 
 
   [DIAGRAM SHOWING TRADITIONAL METHOD OF TRANSPORTING INTERNATIONAL TRAFFIC
                        USING CORRESPONDENT AGREEMENTS]
 
 
 
  Operating agreements typically provide that a carrier will return
terminating traffic ("return traffic") in proportion to the traffic it
receives. Return traffic generally is more profitable than outgoing traffic
because the settlement rate per minute is substantially greater than the
incremental cost of terminating a call in the country due to the lack of
marketing expense and billing costs, as well as the lower cost structure
associated with terminating calls in the United States. Generally, there is a
six-month lag between outbound traffic and the allocation of the corresponding
return traffic and, in certain instances, a minimum volume commitment must be
achieved before qualifying for receipt of return traffic.
 
  Alternative Calling Procedures. As the international long distance market
has deregulated, long distance companies have devised alternative calling
procedures ("ACPs") in order to complete calls more economically than under
the accounting rate system. Some of the more significant ACPs include (i)
transit, (ii) refiling or "hubbing," (iii) international simple resale ("ISR")
and (iv) call-back. The most common method is transit, which allows traffic
between two countries to be carried through a third country on another
carrier's network. This procedure, which requires agreement among the
particular long distance companies and the countries involved, generally is
used either for overflow traffic during peak periods or where a direct circuit
may not be available or justified based on traffic volume. Refiling or
"hubbing" of traffic, which takes advantage of disparities in settlement rates
between different countries, allows traffic to a potential country to be
treated as if it originated in another country that enjoys lower settlement
rates with the destination country, thereby resulting in a lower overall costs
on an end-to-end basis. United States based carriers are beneficiaries of
refiling on behalf of other carriers because of low international rates. The
difference between transit and refiling is that, with respect to transit, the
carrier in the destination country has a direct relationship with the
originating carrier, while with refiling, the carrier in the destination
country is likely not to even know the identity of the originating carrier.
The choice between transit and refiling is determined primarily by cost. With
ISR, a carrier may completely bypass the settlement system by connecting an
international leased line to the public switch telephone network ("PSTN") of a
foreign country or directly to a customer premise. ISR currently is allowed by
applicable regulatory authorities between a limited number of international
routes, including Canada-United Kingdom, United States-United Kingdom, United
States-Sweden and United Kingdom-Australia and is currently increasing in use.
Call-back avoids the high international rates in a particular country of
origin by providing dial tone in a second country with a lower rate, typically
the United States.

  Industry Strategies. Strategies to provide international long distance
services are driven by the emergence of ACPs and the increased demand for
seamless services on a global basis. First-tier service providers primarily
utilize correspondent agreements in order to provide international service.
Second-tier carriers and new entrants primarily are utilizing ACPs and are
developing networks to compete with the first-tier carriers and gain market
share. In response, first-tier carriers have formed alliances to provide
seamless services and one-stop shopping on a global basis. Examples include
Global One (an alliance among Sprint, Deutsche Telekom, France Telecom and
others), Concert (an alliance between British Telecom and MCI) and
WorldPartners (an alliance among AT&T, Unisource and others). Certain new
entrants, including the Company, are establishing their own operations in
multiple countries and, to the extent required to serve other selected
markets, alliances or other arrangements with other carriers. The following
chart illustrates an international long distance call using the Network:

  Description of Operating Markets. The following is a summary of the size,
growth prospects and competitive and regulatory environments of the domestic
and international long distance industries in the Targeted Regions:
 
  UNITED STATES. The United States long distance market is highly deregulated
and is the largest in the world. According to the FCC, in 1994 long distance
telephone revenue was $71.8 billion, including $13.2 billion from
international services (representing 15.5% of the total market). AT&T has
remained the largest long distance carrier in the U.S. market, with market
share of slightly more than 55%, while MCI and Sprint have market shares of
17% and 10%, respectively. AT&T, MCI and Sprint constitute what generally is
regarded as the first-tier in the United States long distance market. Other
large long distance companies with more limited ownership of transmission
capacity, such as WorldCom, Frontier and LCI, constitute the second-tier of
the industry. The remainder of the United States long distance market is
comprised of several hundred smaller companies, largely resellers, which are
known as third-tier carriers.
 
  UNITED KINGDOM. Oftel estimates that the market for international and
domestic long distance services in the United Kingdom accounted for
approximately (Pounds)1.3 billion and (Pounds)4.2 billion in revenues,
respectively, during fiscal 1994. In the United Kingdom, British Telecom
historically has dominated the telecommunications market
 
                                      40

<PAGE>
 
and is the largest carrier. Mercury, which owns and operates interchange
transmission facilities, is the second largest carrier. The remainder of the
United Kingdom long distance market is comprised of an emerging market of
licensed telecommunications service providers, such as Energis, and switch-
based resellers, such as AT&T, WorldCom, MFS, ACC and Esprit.
 
  AUSTRALIA. Austel estimates that during 1994, the market for all
telecommunication services was A$15 billion and the Company believes that the
market for international and domestic long distance services in Australia
during 1994 accounted for approximately A$10 billion in revenues. Telstra and
Optus are classified as "carriers" because they can own and operate local,
national and international transmission networks. Telstra, which is owned by
the Australian government, is a traditional facilities-based carrier with a
market share of approximately 80%. In addition to the Company and Optus,
Telstra currently competes against switched-based resellers such as AAPT, and
several switchless resellers and call-back service providers, including
PacStar. Australia is planning to further deregulate its long distance market
in June 1997 by allowing service providers other than Telstra and Optus to own
transmission facilities.
 
  MEXICO. The market for long distance voice and data telephone services in
Mexico accounted for approximately 22.6 billion Pesos in 1994. In Mexico,
Telmex is currently the monopoly provider of long distance and local services.
In late 1996, however, the long distance market is scheduled to be opened to
competition. As a result, several United States-based long distance carriers
(such as AT&T and MCI) have formed alliances with Mexican partners to
construct long distance networks. Primus, along with MCI, WorldCom and others,
currently provides United States-Mexico cross border private line services.
 
PRIMUS STRATEGY
 
  The Company's objective is to become a leading provider of international and
domestic long distance voice, data and value-added services to its target
customers. The Company's strategy to achieve this objective is to focus on
providing a full range of competitively priced, high-quality services in the
Targeted Regions. Key elements in the Company's strategy include:
 
  . Focus on Customers with Significant International Long Distance
    Usage. The Company's primary focus is providing telecommunications
    services to small- and medium-sized businesses with significant
    international long distance traffic and to ethnic residential
    consumers and, on a wholesale basis, to other telecommunications
    carriers and resellers with international traffic. The Company
    believes that the international long distance market offers an
    attractive business opportunity given its size and, as compared to
    the domestic long distance market, its higher revenue per minute,
    gross margin and expected growth rate. Although the Company expects
    to obtain a significant percentage of its revenue from offering
    international long distance services, the Company currently
    generates, and expects to continue to generate over the near term, a
    greater percentage of net revenue from domestic long distance
    services in an effort to build network traffic more quickly.
 
  . Pursue Early Entry into Selected Deregulating Markets. Primus seeks
    to be an early entrant into selected deregulating telecommunications
    markets where it believes there is significant demand for
    international long distance services, substantial growth and profit
    potential, and the opportunity to establish a customer base and
    achieve name recognition. The Company intends to use each Operating
    Hub as a base to expand into deregulating markets within the Targeted
    Regions and will focus its expansion efforts on major metropolitan
    areas with a high concentration of target customers with
    international traffic. The Company believes that management's
    international telecommunications experience will assist it in
    successfully identifying and launching operations in deregulating
    markets.
 
  . Implement Intelligent International Network. The Company expects that
    the strategic development of the Network will lead to reduced
    transmission and other operating costs as a percentage of net
    revenue, reduced reliance on other carriers and more efficient
    network utilization. The Network will
 
                                      41

<PAGE>
 
   consist of (i) a global backbone network connecting intelligent
   gateway switches in the Targeted Regions, (ii) a domestic long
   distance network presence in each of the Operating Hubs and certain
   additional countries within the Targeted Regions and (iii) a
   combination of leased facilities, resale arrangements and
   correspondent agreements. In an effort to manage transmission costs,
   the Company pursues a flexible approach with respect to Network
   expansion. The Company initially obtains additional transmission
   capacity on a variable-cost, per-minute leased basis, next acquires
   additional capacity on a fixed-cost basis when traffic volume makes
   such a commitment cost-effective, and ultimately purchases and
   operates its own facilities only when traffic levels justify such
   investment.
 
  . Deliver Quality Services at Competitive Prices. The Company delivers
    high-quality services at competitive prices and provides a high level
    of customer service. The Company intends to maintain a low-cost
    structure in order to offer its customers international and domestic
    long distance services priced below that of its major competitors. In
    addition, the Company intends to maintain strong customer
    relationships through the use of trained and experienced service
    representatives and the provision of customized billing services.
 
  . Provide a Comprehensive Package of Services. The Company seeks to
    provide a comprehensive package of services to create "one-stop
    shopping" for its targeted customers' telecommunications needs,
    particularly for small- and medium-sized businesses and ethnic
    residential consumers that prefer a full service telecommunications
    provider. The Company believes this approach strengthens its
    marketing efforts and increases customer retention.
 
NETWORK
 
  Network Design. The Network will consist of (i) a global backbone network
connecting intelligent gateway switches in the Targeted Regions, (ii) a
domestic long distance network presence within each of the Operating Hubs and
certain additional countries within the Targeted Regions and (iii) a
combination of leased facilities, resale arrangements and correspondent
agreements.
 
  The Company has targeted North America, Asia-Pacific and Europe for the
development of the Network. Within each of these Targeted Regions, the Company
has selected the United States (North America), Australia (Asia-Pacific) and
the United Kingdom (Europe) as regional hubs for expansion into additional
markets within the Target Regions. These countries were selected based on their
market size, potential growth and favorable regulatory environments. The
Company has a domestic presence within each of these countries and plans to
construct its global backbone network by interconnecting these countries via
international gateway switches, and owned and leased transmission facilities.
The Company has an established customer base in Australia and is in the process
of building its customer base in major metropolitan areas in the Targeted
Regions, which will provide the Company with separate points of originating
traffic that experience peak network usage at different times of the day,
thereby allowing the Company to attain higher utilization of the Network. The
Company expects to expand into additional markets as deregulation occurs and
the Company is permitted to offer a full range of switched public telephone
services. For instance, the Company has used its United States operations to
initiate operations with and into Mexico and Canada. The Company intends to use
its United Kingdom operations to coordinate efforts to enter other major
metropolitan European markets in the European Union, including those in France
and Germany, in conjunction with the scheduled deregulation of the
telecommunication industry in certain European Union countries in 1998.
 
  Network Implementation. The Network currently consists of an international
gateway switch in Washington, D.C., points-of-presence in New York and London,
and leased transmission capacity connecting to the networks of other
international and domestic carriers. The Company also has correspondent
agreements with India, Iran and Honduras. The Company has installed three
additional international gateway switches in Melbourne, Sydney and Toronto and
has acquired two international gateway switches for installation in New York
and Los Angeles and three other switches for installation in Adelaide, Brisbane
and Perth, all eight of
 
                                       42

<PAGE>
 
which are expected to be operational by the end of the first quarter of 1997.
The Company expects to acquire an additional switch for installation in London
and install additional points-of-presence and switches in other major
metropolitan areas of the Targeted Regions as the traffic usage warrants the
expenditure.
 
  Each of the international gateway switches will be connected to the domestic
and international networks of both the Company and other carriers in a
particular market, allowing the Company to (i) provide seamless service, (ii)
package and market the voice and data services purchased from other carriers
under the "Primus" brand name and (iii) divert a portion of that market's
United States-bound return traffic through the Company's switches in the
United States. In addition, until the Company's customer base grows and it
penetrates other deregulating telecommunications markets, the Company intends
to transit a significant portion of its traffic through the United States.
After the Company's customer base grows and it develops sufficient traffic,
the Company intends to develop its own leased or owned facilities to connect
to its various switches. Where traffic is light or moderate, the Company
intends to obtain capacity to transmit traffic on a per-minute variable cost
basis. When traffic volume increases and such commitments are cost effective,
the Company intends to either lease or purchase lines on a monthly or longer
term basis at a fixed cost and acquire economic interests in transmission
capacity through IRUs to international points.
 
  In countries with highly regulated markets and significant inbound traffic
from its customers and targeted customer segments, the Company intends to use
correspondent agreements when necessary. Assuming significant levels of
inbound and outbound traffic, correspondent agreements may allow the Company
to offer better value to customers calling these markets by improving the
Company's economics over these routes. The Company currently has correspondent
agreements with India, Iran and Honduras and is exploring the possibility of
obtaining additional correspondent agreements with PTTs in certain other
countries which are not expected to deregulate in the near future, although
there can be no assurance that the Company will enter into such agreements on
favorable terms, if at all.
 
SERVICES
 
  Primus offers a broad array of telecommunications services through the
Network and through interconnection with the networks of other carriers. While
over time the Company intends to offer a broad range of bundled
telecommunication services, the availability of services within a particular
market will depend upon regulatory restraints and the availability of services
for resale. In order to create a global brand identity, the Company operates
under the name "Primus" in all of the Targeted Regions. In addition, the
Company operates under the name "Axicorp" in Australia.
 
  The Company offers the following services in the United States, United
Kingdom and Australia:
 
  . International and Domestic Long Distance. The Company provides
    international long distance voice services to its customers to over
    200 countries and provides domestic long distance voice services
    within each of the Operating Hubs. On a market-by-market basis,
    access methods required to originate a call vary according to
    regulatory requirements and the existing domestic telecommunications
    infrastructure. In the United States, access methods available to the
    Company's customers include "1+", toll-free, dedicated (private line)
    and prefix code access. In the United Kingdom, dedicated and prefix
    code access are used to originate calls. In Australia, the Company
    currently is a reseller of services provided by Telstra. When the
    Company operates its own switches in Australia, its services will be
    accessed through the use of toll-free, dedicated and prefix code
    access.
 
  . Private Network Services. For business customers, the Company designs
    and implements international private network services that may be
    used for voice, data and video applications. These services are
    provided on a turnkey basis whereby the Company installs and operates
    equipment necessary to provide end-to-end services at the customer's
    premises. The Company's Mexican operations consist exclusively of the
    provision of private network services to selected multinational
    corporations.
 
                                      43

<PAGE>
 
  In addition, on a market-by-market basis, the Company provides on a stand
alone and/or bundled basis the following services which the Company expects to
introduce over time in all of its markets:
 
  . Prepaid and Calling Cards. The Company offers prepaid and calling
    cards that may be used by customers for domestic and international
    telephone calls within and from their home country. With the
    Company's prepaid card service, a customer purchases a card that
    entitles the customer to make phone calls on the card up to some
    monetary limit. The customer is provided an access number (local or
    toll free phone number) and personal identification number ("PIN").
    The customer dials the access number that accesses the Company's
    switch and an attached voice response unit. The unit confirms the
    authority of the user to use the account by requiring the PIN to be
    entered and confirms that a balance is available on the card. With
    the Company's calling card service, the customer selects a PIN. The
    account is then billed by Primus on a monthly basis as calls are made
    using the card. The Company's prepaid cards are offered in the United
    States and calling cards are offered in the United Kingdom. The
    Company expects to introduce global prepaid and calling cards in 1997
    that will enable customers to make telephone calls in most major
    countries while they are outside their home country.
 
  . Cellular Services. The Company is one of four national dealers
    selling Telstra analog and digital cellular services in Australia.
    The Company intends to provide cellular services on a resale basis in
    the United States and the United Kingdom by the end of 1997.
 
  . Local Switched Service. The Company intends to provide local service
    on a resale basis as part of its "one-stop shopping" marketing
    approach, subject to commercial feasibility and regulatory
    limitations. The Company currently provides local switched service in
    Australia.
 
  . Toll-free Services. The Company currently provides domestic and
    international toll-free services in the United States and intends to
    offer such services in the United Kingdom and Australia when its
    switches become operational in such countries.
 
  New services the Company seeks to introduce in selected markets in 1997
include:
 
  . Internet Services. The Company intends to offer switched and
    dedicated access to the Internet for use by commercial and
    residential customers. These services may be offered on a direct
    connection to the Internet or on a resale basis. Once connected to
    the Internet, customers will be able to access services provided by
    others such as World Wide Web browsing, electronic mail, news feeds
    and bulletin boards.
 
  . Data Services. The Company intends to offer packet-switched and frame
    relay data services in selected markets, a transmission standard
    which utilizes statistical multiplexing technology. Frame relay
    enables multiple users to share communication bandwidth for enhanced
    data transmission.
 
  . Value-Added Services. The Company intends to offer enhanced facsimile
    services, audio and video conferencing, and voice-mail.
 
  There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to launch such
services or that, if launched, such services will be successful.
 
  The Company strives to provide personalized customer service and believes
that the quality of its customer service is one of its competitive advantages.
The Company's larger customers are actively covered by dedicated account and
service representatives who seek to identify, prevent and solve problems. The
Company provides toll-free, 24-hour a day customer service in the United
States, the United Kingdom and Australia. As of July 31, 1996, the Company
employed 44 full-time and 10 part-time customer service representatives.
 
CUSTOMERS
 
  The Company's primary focus is providing telecommunications services, on a
retail basis, to small- and medium-sized businesses with significant
international long distance traffic and ethnic residential consumers and, on a
wholesale basis, other carriers and resellers with international traffic.
During the Company's initial growth
 
                                      44

<PAGE>
 
phase in each service market, however, the Company expects that it will build
revenue from a variety of customers with either local or long distance
(domestic or international) service needs. As of July 31, 1996, the Company
had 95 sales and marketing personnel operating from 10 offices.
 
  Businesses. The Company's business sales and marketing efforts target small-
and medium-sized businesses with significant international long distance
traffic. The Company believes that these users are attracted to Primus
primarily due to its significant price savings compared to first-tier
carriers, and secondarily, its personalized approach to customer service and
support, including customized billing and bundled service offerings. The
Company also sells its services to large multinational corporations on an
opportunistic basis. As of July 31, 1996, the Company employed 60 full-time
direct sales representatives focused on the business market.
 
  Residential Consumers. The Company's residential sales and marketing
strategy targets ethnic residential consumers who generate high international
traffic volumes. The Company believes that these consumers will be attracted
to Primus because of its significant price savings as compared to first-tier
carriers, simplified pricing structure, multilingual customer service and
support and bundled service offerings. As of July 31, 1996, the Company
employed 17 full-time direct sales representatives focused on the ethnic
residential consumers.
 
  Telecommunications Carriers and Resellers. The Company competes for the
business of other telecommunications carriers and resellers primarily on the
basis of price and, to a lesser extent, service quality. The Company believes
that long distance services, when sold to telecommunications carriers and
other resellers, are, generally, a commodity product and therefore do not
benefit from special sales or promotional efforts. Sales to these other
carriers and resellers, however, help the Company maximize the use of the
Network and thereby minimize fixed costs per minute of use. As of July 31,
1996, the Company employed two direct sales professionals focused on
telecommunications carriers and resellers.
 
SALES AND MARKETING
 
  The Company markets its services through a variety of sales channels as
summarized below:

  Direct Sales Force. The Company's direct sales force is comprised of 60
full-time employees who focus on the Company's small- to medium-sized business
customers with substantial international telecommunications traffic or traffic
potential. The Company also employs 17 full-time direct sales representatives
focused on ethnic residential consumers and two direct sales representatives
who exclusively sell wholesale services to other long distance carriers and
resellers. Direct sales personnel are compensated with a base salary plus
sales commissions.
 
  The Company's direct sales efforts will be organized around regional hubs
supported by sales offices. The Company currently has offices in Washington,
D.C., Tampa, Toronto, Mexico City, London, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide,
Brisbane and Perth. The Company intends to open additional offices in Los
Angeles and New York City by the end of 1996 and thereafter, other major
United States metropolitan areas thereafter. These targeted metropolitan areas
have a large number of small- and medium-sized businesses and significant
ethnic populations.
 
  Agents and Independent Sales Representatives. The Company supplements its
direct sales efforts with a network of agents and independent sales
representatives. These agents and representatives, who typically focus
 
                                      45

<PAGE>
 
on small- and medium-sized businesses, as well as ethnic residential
consumers, are paid commissions based on long distance revenue generated.
Within major metropolitan regions, the Company usually grants only
nonexclusive sales rights, requires its agents and representatives to maintain
minimum quotas and prohibits them from selling competitors' products.
 
  Telemarketing. The Company employs 16 full-time telemarketing sales persons
to supplement sales efforts to ethnic residential consumers and small- and
medium-sized business customers. From time to time, the Company also engages
outside telemarketing agents to supplement its internal telemarketing efforts.
 
  Associations. Axicorp successfully markets telecommunications services in
Australia to members of trade and professional associations. Axicorp develops
tailored marketing materials jointly with each association, attends meetings
and trade shows, sponsors events and advertises in newsletters. These
associations receive a fee based on revenue generated by sales to its members.
The Company intends to employ similar marketing programs in the United
Kingdom, the United States and in other markets as appropriate.
 
  Media and Direct Mail. The Company uses a variety of print, television and
radio to increase name recognition in new markets. The Company uses targeted
media and direct mail primarily to reach specific small business or consumer
groups. For example, the Company reaches ethnic residential consumers by
print, media advertising campaigns in ethnic newspapers, and on ethnic radio
and television programs.
 
MANAGEMENT INFORMATION AND BILLING SYSTEMS
 
  The Company uses various management information, network, and customer
billing systems in its different operating subsidiaries to support the
functions of network and traffic management, customer service, customer
billing, and financial reporting. Management believes that its systems are
adequate to meet the Company's needs in the near term, but as the Company
continues to grow, it will invest additional capital to purchase hardware and
software, license more specialized software, increase capacity and link its
systems among different countries.
 
  United States. In the United States, the Company operates systems for
billing and financial reporting. The Company uses a customer billing system
developed by Electronic Data Systems Inc. ("EDS"). Under an agreement with EDS
through the year 2000, EDS supplies, operates and maintains this system and is
responsible for providing back-up facilities and disaster recovery. The EDS
system is widely used in the telecommunications industry and has been
customized to meet the Company's specific needs. The Company direct bills its
business, reseller, and the majority of its residential customers. The Company
also has capabilities established through suppliers to bill certain
residential customers through their respective LECs, which charge for the
Company's service in a monthly, all inclusive invoice. In addition, the
Company has developed a proprietary, local area network-based customer service
and support information system which is on-line with the EDS platform. The
Company believes that using an EDS billing platform ensures access to one of
the most technologically advanced and feature rich multifunctional platforms
in the industry. In addition to the billing capabilities, the platform
includes on-line customer service, fraud control and the ability to generate a
variety of reports. For financial reporting, the Company uses a combination of
the EDS system and a PC-based accounting system package.
 
  Australia. In Australia, prior to its acquisition by the Company, Axicorp
had developed an in-house proprietary system for customer billing and customer
service and support. The Axicorp billing system is technologically advanced
and possesses features that allow Axicorp to provide its customers with a
single integrated invoice for long distance, local, and cellular services. All
customers are billed directly by Axicorp. Axicorp uses a purchased accounting
system package for financial reporting.
 
  United Kingdom. In the United Kingdom, the Company direct bills its
customers through a billing system provided by Telia, which is the Company's
main network provider. Customer service is supported by in-house systems and
financial reporting is done through a PC-based accounting system package. The
Company is evaluating use of a third party billing platform once the Company
installs its own switch in the United Kingdom.

COMPETITION
 
  The international telecommunications industry is highly competitive and
significantly affected by regulatory changes, marketing and pricing decisions
of the larger industry participants and the introduction of new services made
possible by technological advances. The Company believes that long distance
service providers compete on the basis of price, customer service, product
quality and breadth of services offered. The Company's Operating Hubs have
numerous competitors and there are limited barriers to entry in these markets.
The Company believes that as international telecommunications markets continue
to deregulate, competition in these markets will increase, similar to the
competitive environment that has developed in the United States following the
AT&T divestiture in 1984.
 
  Many of the competitors are significantly larger, have substantially greater
financial, technical and marketing resources and larger networks than the
Company. These competitors include, among others, AT&T, MCI, Sprint, WorldCom,
Frontier and LCI in the United States; Telstra and Optus in Australia; and
British Telecom, Mercury, WorldCom and ACC in the United Kingdom.
Additionally, many larger competitors have formed global alliances, including
WorldPartners (AT&T), Concert (MCI and British Telecom) and Global One
(Sprint, France Telecom and Deutsche Telekom), in an attempt to capture market
share on a global basis.
 
  Privatization and deregulation have had, and are expected to continue to
have, significant effects on competition in the industry. For example, as a
result of legislation recently enacted in the United States, RBOCs will be
allowed to enter the long distance market, AT&T, MCI and other long distance
carriers will be allowed to enter the local telephone services market, and
cable television companies and utilities will be allowed to enter both the
local and long distance telecommunications markets. In addition, competition
has begun to increase in the European Union telecommunications markets in
anticipation of the scheduled 1998 deregulation of the telecommunications
industry in most European Union countries.
 
  The following is a brief summary of the competitive environment in each of
the three Operating Hubs:
 
  United States. In the United States, which is the most competitive and among
the most deregulated markets in the world, competition in the long distance
industry is based upon pricing, customer service, network quality, and the
ability to provide value-added services. AT&T is the largest supplier of long
distance services, with MCI and Sprint being the next largest providers. In
the future, under provisions of recently enacted federal legislation, the
Company anticipates that it will also compete with RBOCs, LECs and Internet
providers in providing domestic and international long-distance services.
 
  Australia. Australia is one of the most deregulated and competitive
telecommunications markets in the Asia-Pacific region. The Company's principal
competitors in Australia are Telstra, the dominant carrier, Optus, Vodafone,
AAPT and WXL, three other switched-based carriers and a number of switchless
resellers, including PacStar and CorpTel. See "--Network." The Company
believes that when certain carrier-status regulations are modified, currently
expected to occur in June 1997, competition in Australia will increase. The
Company competes in Australia by offering a comprehensive menu of
competitively-priced products and services, including value-added services,
and by providing superior customer service and support.
 
  United Kingdom. The Company's principal competitors in the United Kingdom
are British Telecom, the dominant supplier of telecommunications services in
the United Kingdom, and Mercury, a subsidiary of Cable & Wireless. The Company
also faces competition from licensed public telephone operators (which are
constructing their own facilities-based networks) such as Energis, Colt and
MFS, from cable companies such as Telewest and SBC CableComms, and from
switch-based resellers such as WorldCom, ACC and Esprit. Other United States-
based carriers also may enter the United Kingdom market. The Company competes
in the United Kingdom by offering competitively-priced bundled and stand-alone
services, personalized customer service and value-added services.

GOVERNMENT REGULATION
 
  As a multinational telecommunications company, Primus is subject to varying
degrees of regulation in each of the jurisdictions in which it provides its
services. Local laws and regulations, and the interpretation of such laws and
regulations, differ significantly among the jurisdictions in which the Company
operates. There can be no assurance that future regulatory, judicial and
legislative changes will not have a material adverse effect on the Company,
that domestic or international regulators or third parties will not raise
material issues with regard to the Company's compliance or noncompliance with
applicable regulations or that regulatory activities will not have a material
adverse effect on the Company. See "Risk Factors--Potential Adverse Effects of
Regulation." The regulatory framework in certain jurisdictions in which the
Company provides its services is briefly described below.
 
  United States. In the United States, the provision of the Company's services
is subject to the provisions of the Communications Act, the 1996
Telecommunications Act and the FCC regulations thereunder, as well as the
applicable laws and regulations of the various states. The FCC exercises
jurisdiction over all facilities of, and services offered by,
telecommunications common carriers to the extent such services involve
jurisdictionally interstate communications, while state regulatory authorities
retain jurisdiction over jurisdictionally intrastate communications.
 
  As a carrier offering services to the public, the Company must comply with
the requirements of common carriage under the Communications Act, including
the offering of service on a non-discriminatory basis at just and reasonable
rates, and obtaining FCC approval prior to any assignment of authorizations or
any transfer of de jure or de facto control of the Company. The Company is
classified as a non-dominant common carrier for domestic service and is not
required to obtain specific prior FCC approval to initiate or expand domestic
interstate services. The FCC requires domestic carriers, including the
Company, to maintain tariffs on file at the Commission. Although the
interstate tariffs of non-dominant carriers are subject to FCC review, they
are presumed lawful and are seldom contested. As a domestic non-dominant
carrier, the Company is permitted to make tariff filings on a single day's
notice and without cost support to justify specific rates. The FCC is
currently considering whether to exempt non-dominant domestic carriers from
federal tariffing requirements, pursuant to authority granted to the
Commission in the 1996 Telecommunications Act, although there can be no
assurance that the FCC will adopt this policy.
 
   DOMESTIC SERVICE REGULATION. The 1996 Telecommunications Act, enacted in
February 1996, is intended to increase competition in the United States
telecommunications markets. The legislation opens the local services markets
by requiring LECs to permit interconnection to their networks and by
establishing LEC obligations with respect to unbundled access, resale, number
portability, dialing parity, access to rights-of-way, mutual compensation and
other matters. In addition, the legislation codifies the LECs' equal access
and nondiscrimination obligations and preempts inconsistent state regulation.
The legislation also contains special provisions that eliminate the
restrictions on the RBOCs and the GTE Operating Companies (the "GTOCs") from
providing long distance services. These new provisions permit an RBOC to enter
the "out-of-region" long distance market immediately upon the receipt of any
state and/or federal regulatory approvals otherwise applicable to the
provision of long distance service. These new provisions also permit an RBOC
to enter the "in-region" long distance market if it satisfies procedural and
substantive requirements, including obtaining FCC approval upon a showing that
in certain situations facilities-based competition is present in its market,
and that it has entered into interconnection agreements which satisfy a 14-
point "checklist" of competitive requirements. The GTOCs are permitted to
enter the long distance market as of the date of enactment of the 1996
Telecommunications Act, without regard to limitations by region, although
necessary regulatory approvals to provide long distance services must be
obtained, and the GTOCs are subject to the provisions of the 1996
Telecommunications Act that impose interconnection and other requirements on
LECs. The 1996 Telecommunications Act also addresses a wide range of other
telecommunications issues that may potentially impact the Company's
operations. It is unknown at this time precisely the nature and extent of the
impact that the legislation will have on the Company. As required by the
legislation, the FCC will be conducting a large number of proceedings over the
next year to adopt rules and regulations to implement the new statutory
 
                                      48

<PAGE>
 
provisions and requirements. On August 1, 1996, the FCC adopted an
Interconnection Order implementing the requirements that incumbent LECs make
available to new entrants interconnection and unbundled network elements, and
offer retail services for resale at wholesale rates.
 
   STATE REGULATION. The Company's intrastate long distance operations are
subject to various state laws and regulations including, in most
jurisdictions, certification and tariff filing requirements. The vast majority
of the states require the Company to apply for certification to provide
intrastate telecommunications services, or at least to register or to be found
exempt from regulation, before commencing intrastate service. Certificates of
authority can generally be conditioned, modified, canceled, terminated, or
revoked by state regulatory authorities for failure to comply with state law
and/or the rules, regulations, and policies of the state regulatory
authorities. Fines and other penalties also may be imposed for such
violations.
 
  The Company has received the necessary certificate and tariff approvals to
provide intrastate long distance service in 37 states. Applications for
certification are pending or will be filed in 11 other states. Although the
Company intends and expects to obtain operating authority in each jurisdiction
in which operating authority is required, there can be no assurance that one
or more of these jurisdictions will not deny the Company's request for
operating authority. The Company monitors regulatory developments in all 50
states to ensure regulatory compliance. The Company provides interstate
service nationwide under FCC interstate tariffs. To the extent that any
incidental intrastate service is provided in any state where the Company has
not yet obtained any required certification, the state commissions in that
state may impose penalties for any such unauthorized provision of service.
 
  PSCs also regulate access charges and other pricing for telecommunications
services within each state. The RBOCs and other local exchange carriers have
been seeking reduction of state regulatory requirements, including greater
pricing flexibility. This could adversely affect the Company in several ways.
If regulations are changed to allow variable pricing of access charges based
on volume, the Company could be placed at a competitive disadvantage over
larger long distance carriers. The Company also could face increased price
competition from the RBOCs and other local exchange carriers for intra-LATA
and inter-LATA long distance services, which competition may be increased by
the removal of former restrictions on long distance service offerings by the
RBOCs as a result of the 1996 Telecommunications Act.
 
   INTERNATIONAL SERVICE REGULATION. International common carriers, such as
the Company, are required to obtain authority under Section 214 of the
Communications Act and file a tariff containing the rates, terms, and
conditions applicable to their services prior to initiating their
international telecommunications services. The Company has obtained all
required authorizations from the FCC to use, on a facilities and resale basis,
various transmission media for the provision of international switched
services and international private line services.
 
  Under new tariff rules applicable to international carriers, nondominant
international carriers such as the Company must file their international
tariffs and any revisions thereto with one day's notice in lieu of the 14-day
notice previously required. The Company has filed international tariffs for
switched and private line services with the FCC. Additionally, international
telecommunications service providers are required to file copies of their
contracts with other carriers, including correspondent agreements, with the
FCC within 30 days of execution. The Company has filed each of its
correspondent agreements with the FCC. The FCC's rules also require the
Company to file periodically a variety of reports regarding its international
traffic flows and use of international facilities. The FCC has recently
proposed to reduce certain reporting requirements of common carriers, although
the Company is unable to predict the outcome of this proposal.
 
  In addition to the general common carrier principles, the Company must
conduct its international business in compliance with the FCC's international
settlements policy ("ISP"). The ISP establishes the permissible boundaries for
U.S.-based carriers and their foreign correspondents to settle the cost of
terminating each other's traffic over their respective networks. The amount of
payments (the "settlement rate") is determined by the negotiated accounting
rate specified in the correspondent agreement. Under the ISP, unless prior
approval is obtained, the settlement rate generally must be one-half of the
accounting rate. Carriers must obtain waivers of
 
                                      49

<PAGE>
 
the FCC's rules if they wish to use an accounting rate that differs from the
prevailing rate or vary the settlement rate from one-half of the accounting
rate. As a result of the FCC's pro-competition policies, the recent trend has
been to reduce accounting rates.
 
  As a U.S.-based international carrier, the Company is also subject to the
FCC's "uniform settlements policy" designed to eliminate foreign carriers'
incentives and opportunities to discriminate in their correspondent agreements
among different U.S.-based carriers through "whipsawing." Whipsawing refers to
the practice of a foreign carrier to vary the accounting and/or settlement
rate offered to different U.S.-based carriers for the benefit of the foreign
carrier, which could secure various incentives by favoring one U.S-based
carrier over another. Under the uniform settlements policy, U.S.-based
carriers can only enter into correspondent agreements that contain the same
accounting rate offered to all U.S.-based carriers. When a U.S.-based carrier
negotiates an accounting rate with a foreign correspondent that is lower than
the accounting rate offered to another U.S.-based carrier for the same
service, the U.S.-based carrier with the lower rate must file a notification
letter with the FCC. If a U.S.-based carrier varies the terms and conditions
of its correspondent agreement in addition to lowering the accounting rate,
then the U.S.-based carrier must request a waiver of the FCC's rules. Both the
notification and the waiver requests are designed to ensure that all U.S.-
based carriers have an opportunity to compete for foreign correspondent return
traffic.
 
  Among other efforts to prevent the practice of whipsawing and inequitable
treatment of similarly situated U.S.-based carriers, the FCC adopted the
principle of proportionate return to ensure that competing U.S.-based carriers
have roughly equitable opportunities to receive the return traffic that
reduces the marginal cost of providing international service. Consistent with
its pro-competition policies, the FCC prohibits U.S.-based carriers from
bargaining for special concessions from foreign partners.
 
   FOREIGN OWNERSHIP LIMITATIONS. The Communications Act limits the ownership
of an entity holding a common carrier radio license by non-U.S. citizens,
foreign corporations and foreign governments. The Company does not currently
hold any radio licenses. These ownership restrictions currently do not apply
to non-radio facilities, such as fiber optic cable. There can be no assurance,
however, that foreign ownership restrictions will not be imposed on the
operation of non-radio facilities used for the provision of international
services. The FCC recently adopted new rules relating to the entry and
participation of foreign entities in the U.S. telecommunications market. Under
those rules, the FCC will scrutinize an ownership interest greater than 25%,
or a controlling interest at any level in a U.S. carrier by a dominant foreign
carrier, to determine whether the destination market of the foreign carrier
offers "effective, competitive opportunities" ("ECO"). The Commission imposes
the same ECO test and affiliation standard on U.S.-based carriers that invest
in dominant foreign carriers. The FCC may impose restrictions on affiliated
carriers not meeting the ECO test. The new rules also require international
carriers to notify the FCC 60 days in advance of an acquisition of a 10% or
greater interest by a foreign carrier in that U.S. carrier. The FCC has
discretion to determine that unique factors require application of the ECO
test or a change in regulatory status of the U.S. carrier even though the
foreign carrier's interest is less than 25%. These rules also reduce
international tariff notice requirements for dominant, foreign-affiliated
carriers from 45 days' notice to 14 days' notice. Such reduced tariff notice
requirements may make it easier for dominant, foreign-affiliated carriers to
compete with the Company. The 1996 Telecommunications Act partially amends
existing restrictions on foreign ownership of radio licenses by allowing
corporations with non-U.S. citizen officers or directors to hold radio
licenses. Other non-U.S. ownership restrictions, however, remain unchanged.
The effect on the Company of the 1996 Telecommunications Act or other new
legislation or regulations which may become applicable to the Company cannot
be determined.
 
   CHANGING U.S. REGULATIONS. Regulation of the telecommunications industry is
changing rapidly. The FCC is considering a number of international service
issues in the context of several policy rulemaking proceedings and in response
to specific petitions and applications filed by other international carriers.
The FCC's resolution of some of these issues in other proceedings may
adversely affect the Company's international business (by, for example,
permitting larger carriers to take advantage of accounting rate discounts for
high traffic
 
                                      50

<PAGE>
 
volumes). The Company is unable to predict how the FCC will resolve the
pending international policy issues or how such resolution will affect its
international business. There can be no assurance that future regulatory
changes will not have a material adverse impact on the Company.
 
  Australia. In Australia, the provision of the Company's services is subject
to federal regulation pursuant to the Telecom Act and federal regulation of
anti-competitive practices pursuant to the Trade Practices Act 1974. In
addition, other federal legislation, various regulations pursuant to delegated
authority and legislation, ministerial declarations, codes, directions,
licenses, statements of the Commonwealth Government policy and court decisions
affecting telecommunications carriers also apply to the Company.
 
  The Australian market is undergoing deregulation in two phases. The first
phase of the deregulation process commenced in 1991 and continued in 1992 with
(1) the enactment of the Telecom Act, (2) the corporatization of the local
PTT, Telecom Australia, into the corporation now known as Telstra, (3) the
creation and licensing of a second general carrier, Optus, (4) an agreement by
the Australian Government with Optus not to grant another general carrier
license before July 1, 1997, (5) the creation of a system to enable service
providers to compete with the carriers in the provision of telecommunications
services from 1992, (6) the licensing of Vodafone as a third digital mobile
carrier, and (7) a declared Government policy of achieving full competition by
July 1, 1997, subject to regulation by the Australian Government and the
telecommunications regulatory authority (at the present time, AUSTEL), and
also by the competition regulatory authority (the Australian Competition and
Consumer Commission or "ACCC"), which is expected to be given new jurisdiction
over competition aspects of the Australian telecommunications industry. These
regulatory authorities will have responsibility for economic and technical
regulation of the telecommunications industry as well as promoting competition
and protecting consumers.
 
  The Australian telecommunications industry continues to undergo
deregulation, and it is currently expected that the Australian Government will
license additional carriers, including the Company, to own transmission
facilities in July 1997. Amendments to the Telecom Act and possibly to
Australia's competition law, the Trade Practices Act, are expected to be made
prior to July 1, 1997 in order to change some aspects of, and to clarify, the
regulatory framework for this second phase of deregulation. Both Telstra and
Optus have requested that the Australian Government defer such date, and there
can be no assurance that the deregulatory process will proceed in accordance
with the Australian Government's announced timetable. Any delay in such
deregulatory process or in the granting of a license to the Company would
prohibit the Company from owning transmission facilities in Australia and
thereby limit the Company's ability to realize additional efficiencies
expected to result from the incorporation of owned facilities into its
Network.
 
  In the Australian context, a distinction is drawn between carriers licensed
under the Telecom Act and all other providers of telecommunications services.
Telstra, Optus and Vodafone are the only licensed facilities-based carriers
currently operating in Australia with exclusive rights to the transmission
facilities that constitute their networks. Both Telstra and Optus are licensed
by the Australian Government as general carriers and mobile carriers. Telstra
has been designated by AUSTEL as a dominant carrier for international
services. However, Telstra is currently challenging AUSTEL's finding of
dominance in the Australian federal courts.
 
  Until July 1997, other operators may provide service on a resale basis
pursuant to a class license established by Part 10 of the Telecom Act. These
resellers operate in a switched-based or switchless environment and rely on
one or more of the licensed carriers. There are currently three types of class
licenses--service providers license, international service providers license,
and the public access cordless telecommunications services license. The class
licenses set forth the regulatory requirements applicable to all operators
providing services governed by such license. As a reseller of domestic, local
and long distance service, cellular service and international service, the
Company must comply with the terms of the class license that applies to all
service providers until July 1997, or later if the deregulatory process in
Australia is delayed.
 
                                      51

<PAGE>
 
  A service provider does not need to apply or register for a class license.
However, a registration system does exist, providing some advantages of
certainty to the service provider by ensuring that particular service is
provided under the relevant class license. The system has the commercial
disadvantage of disclosing certain information about a provider's activities.
In addition, a system of forced enrollment exists for AUSTEL to monitor certain
activities. This requirement for enrollment has been applied to eligible
international services and eligible PACT services.
 
  The remainder of the telecommunications services in Australia, including
value-added services, is open to competition. From July 1997, operators other
than Telstra, Optus and Vodafone may become general licensed carriers. Axicorp
currently plans to become a licensed general carrier after July 1997. As a
general licensed carrier, Axicorp will be required to comply with the terms of
its own license and will be subject to the greater regulatory controls
applicable to licensed facilities-based carriers.
 
  United Kingdom. In the United Kingdom, the provision of the Company's
services is subject to the provisions of the U.K. Telecommunications Act. The
Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, acting on the advice of the U.K.
Department of Trade and Industry (the "DTI") is responsible for granting UK
telecommunications licenses, while the Director General of Telecommunications
(the "Director General") and Oftel are responsible for enforcing the terms of
such licenses. Oftel attempts to promote effective competition both in networks
and in services to redress anticompetitive behavior. The Company is also
subject to general European Union law.
 
  Until 1981, British Telecom was virtually the sole provider of public
telecommunications services throughout the United Kingdom. This virtual
monopoly ended when, in 1981, the British government granted Mercury a license
to run its own telecommunications system under the British Telecommunications
Act 1981. Both British Telecom and Mercury are licensed under the subsequent
U.K. Telecommunications Act to run transmission facilities-based
telecommunications systems and provide telecommunications services. In 1991,
the British government established a "multi-operator" policy to replace the
duopoly that had existed between British Telecom and Mercury. Under the multi-
operator policy, the DTI will recommend the grant of a license to operate a
telecommunications network to any applicant that the DTI believes has a
reasonable business plan and where there are no other overriding considerations
not to grant such license. All public telecommunications operators and
international simple resellers operate under individual licenses granted by the
Secretary of State for Trade and Industry pursuant to the U.K.
Telecommunications Act. Any telecommunications system with compatible equipment
that is authorized to be run under an individual license is permitted to
interconnect to British Telecom's network. Under the terms of British Telecom's
license, it is required to allow any such licensed operator to interconnect its
system to British Telecom's system, unless it is not reasonably practicable to
do so (e.g., due to incompatible equipment).
 
  The Company's subsidiary, Primus Telecommunications, Inc., holds an ISR
license that authorizes it to provide switched voice services over leased
private lines to all international points. In addition, the Company (along with
approximately 45 other applicants, including AT&T, WorldCom and ACC) has
recently made application to the U.K. Secretary for Trade and Industry for a
license to provide international facilities-based voice services. Although the
Company currently expects such license to be granted by the end of the first
quarter of 1997, there can be no assurance that the Company will be granted the
license by such time, or at all. Failure to obtain such license would prevent
the Company from providing facilities-based services in the United Kingdom and
would have an adverse effect on the Company's ability to expand its operations.
 
    TARIFFS. Telecommunications tariffs on operators in the United Kingdom
(excluding British Telecom) are generally not subject to prior review or
approval by regulatory authorities, although Oftel has historically imposed
price caps on British Telecom. The current price caps on British Telecom expire
at the end of July 1997. Oftel is considering whether it will be able to police
anti-competitive behavior effectively and is currently conducting a price
control review of the U.K. telecommunications industry. Key elements of Oftel's
final proposals in connection with this review include terminating price
controls on British Telecom in 2001, limiting increases in telecommunications
services charges for residential customers to the rate of inflation, and
continued
 
                                       52

<PAGE>
 
regulation of access charges by British Telecom to its competing
telecommunications service providers. With respect to the creation of a
detailed effective regulatory regime for the future, Oftel has published its
proposals in July 1995 in a document entitled "Effective Competition:
Framework for Action." Key elements of Oftel's plans included (1) moving to an
incremental cost basis for interconnection charges from 1997, (2) withdrawing
from detailed setting of some interconnection charges, (3) providing for
industry-wide contribution to the cost of maintaining "universal service," (4)
eliminating access deficit charges, (5) moving towards pricing based on
capacity charging for interconnection services and (6) developing an
interconnection regime for service providers. There can be no assurances that
such proposals will be implemented, in whole or in part, in the time frame
specified.
 
   FAIR TRADING PRACTICES. Oftel is the principal regulator of the competitive
aspects of the U.K. telecommunications industry. Oftel's limited authority in
this area is derived from the powers given to Oftel under the U.K.
Telecommunications Act and from the terms of the licenses granted under the
U.K. Telecommunications Act. Any dispute between Oftel and a
telecommunications service provider may be referred on appeal to the U.K.
Monopolies and Mergers Commission, which may conduct a detailed and lengthy
review of the facts surrounding such dispute. Furthermore, Oftel has no
authority to impose fines for a breach of the terms of a license issued under
the U.K. Telecommunications Act, and third parties have no right to damages
for a past breach. Oftel has expressed its view that the current regulatory
regime is both obscure and uncertain. Although Oftel is currently seeking more
power to police the competitive aspects of the U.K. telecommunications
industry, no assurances can be given that it will be successful in its efforts
or that it will be able to prohibit anti-competitive conduct harmful to the
Company. The Company is also subject to general European law, which, among
other things, prohibits certain anti-competitive agreements and abuses of
dominant market positions through Articles 85 and 86 of the Treaty of Rome.
The European Commission is entrusted with the principal enforcement powers
under European Union competition law. It has the power to impose fines of up
to 10% of a group's annual revenue in respect of breaches of Articles 85 and
86. In most cases notification of potentially infringing agreements to the
Commission under Article 85 with a request for an exemption protects against
the risk of fines from the date of notification.
 
  In March 1996, Oftel published an interim report on incremental costs
detailing steps to develop a methodology to calculate such costs. The report
has identified two models: "top-down" developed by British Telecom, and
"bottom up" favored by the industry. Incremental costs play a key role in
Oftel's proposals for the control of British Telecom's interconnection charges
as of August 1997. There is a risk that if agreement to costing methodologies
to be used by British Telecom is delayed or does not occur, the matter will be
referred to the MMC which could mean that the implementation of proper
transparency and allocation of costs when operators are seeking
interconnection with British Telecom will be seriously delayed.
 
  Mexico. In Mexico, the provision of the Company's services is subject to the
provisions of the 1940 General Communications Law, 1995 Federal
Telecommunications Law and 1990 Telecommunications Regulations, which provide
the general legal framework for the regulation of telecommunications services
in Mexico. Since the enactment of the 1995 Federal Telecommunications Law, the
Mexican government has adopted several implementing rules regarding
interconnection, long distance services, numbering and signaling, and other
rules are pending.
 
  Pursuant to the 1995 Federal Telecommunications Law, the Mexican government
recently created an independent telecommunications commission that will
regulate and oversee the telecommunications sector in Mexico. The Federal
Telecommunications Commission will take over many of the functions and
responsibilities of the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation
("SCT"). In particular, the Commission's powers and attributions include (i)
the administration of the radioelectric spectrum, (ii) the administration of
the Telecommunications Registry, (iii) to promote and oversee the efficient
interconnection between the public telecommunications networks, (iv) to
resolve interconnection disputes between the concessionaires, (v) to impose
specific obligations on concessionaires that have substantial market power in
the relevant market and (vi) to opine regarding the granting, extension,
assignment or revocation of concessions and permits.
 
  The 1995 Federal Telecommunications Law classifies telecommunications
networks into public or private depending on the use of the network. Public
telecommunications networks are those networks that are used to
 
                                      53

<PAGE>
 
provide commercial telecommunications services to the public. Private
telecommunications networks are those that are used to satisfy the specific
telecommunications needs of persons and that do not offer telecommunications
services to the public.
 
  Operators of private networks do not require any authority from the
government unless they use the radio frequency spectrum. Public
telecommunications network operators require specific authority from the
government, which will vary depending on whether a carrier intends to resell
or operate as a facilities-based carrier. "Concessionaires" of public
telecommunications networks are those facilities-based carriers that require a
concession from the federal government to use the radio spectrum, satellite
links or any form of terrestrial cables to provide public telecommunications
services. "Resellers" (or "vendors") of telecommunication services are those
carriers that provide telecommunications services to the public through the
use of capacity acquired from concessionaires of public telecommunications
networks. Resellers only require a permit. No specific authority from the SCT
is required to provide value-added services. However, parties that wish to
provide value-added services must register in the SCT's Telecommunications
Registry. The Company obtained registration to provide such services in August
1996, and currently plans to provide value-added services including Internet
access, enhanced facsimile, voice mail retrieve functionalities, electronic
mail and call store and forward.
 
  The Company, through its subsidiary Primus Telecommunicaciones de Mexico,
S.A. de C.V., is currently providing private network management services to
companies that already have leased a private network to serve their internal
corporate needs. Private network management services qualify as unregulated
services in Mexico and do not require any type of authorization from any
government authority.
 
  In July 1994, the SCT issued the rules for the interconnection of competing
long distance carriers with Telmex's network. The rules provide that Telmex is
required to make 60 of its switches available to its competitors by January 1,
1997, and gradually increase the number of switches until all of its switches
are available to competitors after January 1, 2001. In addition, the rules
provide that as of January 1, 1997, competing carriers may, at their own cost,
interconnect to other switches in Mexico even if they are not included in the
list of 60 switches that Telmex has to make available by 1997.
 
  In this regard, in April 1996, the SCT established the structure of the
principal rates that Telmex will charge new long distance carriers for
interconnection with its network and set the rates for 1997 and 1998. On June
21, 1996, the SCT issued rules governing long distance services, as well as
the Basic Technical Plans for Numbering and for Signaling, which address a
number of technical issues relating to the commencement of competition in long
distance services. The new long distance rules establish the framework and
schedule for the provision of competitive long distance services including
rules regarding presubscription, numbering access codes, allocation of service
related liability, billing and collection and certain consultation and
information sharing mechanisms among service providers and the SCT. The rules,
however, do not address the transmission of international long distance
traffic.
 
AXICORP
 
  The Company acquired Axicorp, the fourth largest telecommunications provider
in Australia, in March 1996. Axicorp provides the Company early entry into the
deregulating Australian telecommunications market and will serve as the
Company's gateway to the Asia-Pacific region. The Company believes that the
ongoing transformation of Axicorp's strategy and operations to a facilities-
based carrier focused on the provision of international and domestic long
distance services is an example of the execution of the Company's business
model. For the twelve months ended March 31, 1996, Axicorp generated net
revenue of approximately $144 million.
 
  Axicorp began operations in September 1993 in order to capitalize on the
opportunities arising from the advent of the deregulation of the
telecommunications industry in Australia. Prior to the acquisition, Axicorp
pursued a strategy of reselling long distance, local switched and cellular
services at a discount to the prices charged by Telstra, the former monopoly
telecommunications provider in Australia. Axicorp originally marketed
 
                                      54

<PAGE>
 
and sold its services through sales agents to professional and trade
associations. All of Axicorp's billing and collection functions were conducted
by Telstra.
 
  Since acquiring Axicorp in March 1996, Primus has been investing substantial
resources to transform Axicorp's strategy and operations to those of a
facilities-based carrier focused on the provision of international and
domestic long distance services. The Company has acquired five switches for
use in Australia, which are expected to be operational by the end of the first
quarter of 1997, and has focused on increasing the number of higher-margin,
higher-volume business customers with significant international long distance
traffic. As part of its increasing focus on business customers, the Company is
increasing Axicorp's direct sales force and reducing its reliance on marketing
through associations. In addition, Axicorp's switch network will be integrated
into the Network and the Company intends to offer additional services in
Australia, including prepaid and calling cards, audio-conferencing and toll-
free services.
 
  The Company believes that the integration of Axicorp into the Company's
operations and strategy will be enhanced by certain Australian regulatory
changes expected to become effective in July 1997. Under current regulations,
only Telstra and Optus are licensed as full service facilities-based carriers.
The Australian government, however, has indicated plans to deregulate the
Australian telecommunications market in July 1997, which would permit Axicorp
and others to own transmission facilities. Although both Telstra and Optus
have requested the government to delay the July 1997 implementation of
deregulation, the Company believes that any such delay would not affect the
Company's ability to own and operate its network of switches within Australia.
See "--Government Regulation."
 
  The Company acquired Axicorp for $5.7 million in cash, including transaction
costs, 455,000 shares of Series A Stock and seller financing consisting of two
notes (the "Seller Notes"), one for $4.1 million payable to Fujitsu Australia
Limited, and the other for $4.0 million payable to the individual shareholder
sellers. The sellers are holding as security approximately 25% of their shares
in Axicorp under a share mortgage for the Seller Notes. These shares will be
delivered to the Company when the notes are paid in full. In turn, the Company
is holding 248,334 shares of the Series A Stock issued to the sellers as
collateral for the Axicorp shares withheld. These shares of Series A Stock
will be released to the sellers once the remaining Axicorp shares are
received. Pusuant to its terms, the Series A Stock will be converted into
Common Stock upon the completion of the Offering.

  The Company never has experienced a work stoppage, and none of its employees
is represented by a labor union or covered by a collective bargaining
agreement. The Company considers its employee relations to be good.
 

PROPERTIES
 
  The Company's headquarters in McLean, Virginia consist of approximately
4,585 square feet of office space under a lease that expires in September
1997. The Company anticipates extending this lease and to lease
 
                                      55

<PAGE>
 
additional space in the same building. In addition the Company leases a sales
office in Tampa, Florida consisting of 2,859 square feet, which lease expires
in April 1998. The Company also leases a 2,575 square foot facility which
houses the Company's Washington, D.C. switch through May 1997, and leases a
5,350 square foot facility in Los Angeles, California at which it intends to
locate an international gateway switch.
 
  The Axicorp facilities consist of administrative offices and other
facilities aggregating approximately 30,000 square feet. Axicorp's leases
expire at varying times from January 1997 to August 1999. In the United
Kingdom, the Company leases approximately 3,250 square feet of office space
which expires in April 1999. In Mexico, the Company leases approximately 83
square feet of office space in Mexico City for a term expiring in October
1997. In Toronto, the Company leases approximately 420 square feet expiring
July 2001.
 
  Management believes that the Company's present office facilities, together
with additional space currently under discussion with its Virginia landlord,
are adequate for its anticipated operations, and that similar space can
readily be obtained as needed. As its network of owned digital switches grows,
the Company will have to lease additional locations to house these facilities.
 
LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
  The Company is from time to time involved in litigation incidental to the
conduct of its business. There is no pending legal proceeding to which the
Company is a party which the Company believes is likely to have a material
adverse effect on the Company's business, financial condition or results of
operations.

CLASSIFIED BOARD OF DIRECTORS
 
  Pursuant to the Company's By-Laws, the Board of Directors is divided into
three classes of directors each containing, as nearly as possible, an equal
number of directors. Directors within each class are elected to serve three-
year terms and approximately one-third of the directors sit for election at
each annual meeting of the Company's stockholders. A classified board of
directors may have the effect of deterring or delaying any attempt by any
group to obtain control of the Company by a proxy contest since such third
party would be required to have its nominees elected at two separate annual
meetings of the Board of Directors in order to elect a majority of the members
of the Board of Directors. Directors who are elected to fill a vacancy
(including vacancies created by an increase in the number of directors) must
be confirmed by the stockholders at the next annual meeting of stockholders
whether or not such director's term expires at such annual meeting. See
"Description of Capital Stock--Takeover Protection."
 
DIRECTOR COMPENSATION
 
  The Company pays cash compensation to outside board members who are not
otherwise consultants to the Company. Each such board member is entitled to
receive $500 for each meeting of the Board of Directors, or any committee
thereof, attended by such board member in person or by telephone. The Company
also has adopted a Director Plan under which options for up to a total of
shares of Common Stock will be issued to those directors of the Company that
are not also employees of the Company. Under the Director Plan, each of the
current non-employee directors has received options with respect to a total of
   shares at an exercise price of $   per share.
 
COMMITTEES OF THE BOARD
 
  The Company's Board of Directors has appointed an Audit Committee,
Nominating Committee and a Compensation Committee.
 
  Audit Committee. The Audit Committee, which currently consists of Messrs.
Krieger (Chairman) and Puente, has the authority and responsibility to hire
one or more independent public accountants to audit the Company's books,
records and financial statements and to review the Company's systems of
accounting (including its systems of internal control); to discuss with such
independent public accountants the results of such audit and review; to
conduct periodic independent reviews of the systems of accounting (including
systems of internal control); and to make reports periodically to the Board of
Directors with respect to its findings.
 
  Nominating Committee. The Nominating Committee, which currently consists of
Messrs. Puente (Chairman) and Singh, is responsible for selecting those
persons to be nominated to the Company's Board of Directors.

other compensation matters such as those relating to the operation of the
Plans and approving certain aspects of the Company's management bonus plan.
 
COMPENSATION COMMITTEE INTERLOCKS AND INSIDER PARTICIPATION
 
  None of the members of the Compensation Committee has any interlocking or
other relationship with the Company that would call into question his
independence with respect to his duties.

STOCK OPTION PLANS
 
  Employee Stock Option Plan. The Company established the Employee Plan for
its employees on January 2, 1995 which provides for the grant to selected
employees of the Company and its Subsidiaries who contribute to the
development and success of the Company and its Subsidiaries of both "incentive
stock options" within the meaning of Section 422 of the Code ("ISOs") and
options that are non-qualified for federal income tax purposes ("NQSOs"). The
total number of shares of Common Stock for which options may be granted
pursuant to the Employee Plan is    , subject to certain adjustments
reflecting changes in the Company's capitalization. The Employee Plan is
currently administered by the Board of Directors, although it provides for its
administration by a Committee of the Board. The Board of Directors determines,
among other things, which employees will receive options under the Employee
Plan; the time when options will be granted; the type of option (ISO or NQSO,
or both) to be granted, the number of shares subject to each option, the time
or times when the options will become exercisable and expire, and, subject to
certain conditions discussed below, the option price and duration of the
option. Board members administering the Employee Plan may vote on any matters
affecting the administration of the Plan, except that no member may act upon
the granting of an option to himself or herself.
 
  The exercise price of the options granted under the Employee Plan is
determined by the Board of Directors, but may not be less than the fair market
value per share of the Common Stock on the date the option is granted. If,
however, an ISO is granted to any person who, at the time of the grant, owns
capital stock possessing more than 10% of the total combined voting power of
all classes of the Company's capital stock, then the exercise price for such
ISO may not be less than 110% of the fair market value per share of the Common
Stock on the date the option is granted. The Board of Directors also
determines the method of payment for the exercise of options under the
Employee Plan, and may consist entirely of cash, check, promissory notes or
Common Stock having a fair market value on the date of surrender equal to the
aggregate exercise price.
 
                                      60

<PAGE>
 
  Options are not assignable or transferrable other than by will or the laws
of descent and distribution. If an employee's employment with the Company is
terminated for any reason, such employee's options exercisable on the date of
termination are exercisable for three months following the date of
termination. If the Board of Directors makes a determination that a terminated
employee engaged in disloyalty to the Company, disclosed proprietary
information, is convicted of a felony, or breached the terms of a written
confidentiality agreement or non-competition agreement, all unexercised
options held by such employee terminate upon the earlier of the date of such
determination or the date of termination. If an employee becomes disabled or
deceased while an employee of the Company, such employee's options that are
exercisable on the date of disability or death will remain exercisable for
twelve months following the date of disability or death; provided, however,
that if a disabled employee commences employment with a competitor of the
Company during that twelve-month period, all options held by the employee
terminate immediately.
 
  Options issued pursuant to the Employee Plan outstanding on the date of a
"change in control" of the Company become immediately exercisable on such
date. A change in control for purposes of the Employee Plan includes the
acquisition by any person or entity of the beneficial ownership of 50% or more
of the voting power of the Company's stock, the approval by the Company's
shareholders of a merger, reorganization or consolidation of the Company in
which the Company's shareholders do not own 50% or more of the voting power of
the stock of the entity surviving such a transaction, the approval of the
Company's shareholders of an agreement of sale of all or substantially all of
the Company's assets, and the acceptance by the Company's shareholders of a
share exchange in which the Company's shareholders do not own 50% or more of
the voting power of the stock of the entity surviving such exchange.
 
  There are no federal income tax consequences to the Company on the grant or
exercise of an ISO. If an employee disposes of stock acquired through the
exercise of an ISO within one year after the date such stock is acquired or
within two years after the grant of the ISO (a "Disqualifying Disposition"),
the Company will be entitled to a deduction in an amount equal to the
difference between the fair market value of such stock on the date it is
acquired and the exercise price of the ISO. There are no tax consequences to
the Company if an ISO lapses before exercise or is forfeited. The grant of a
NQSO has no immediate tax consequences to the Company. Upon the exercise of a
NQSO by an employee, the Company is entitled to a deduction in an amount equal
to the difference between the fair market value of the share acquired through
exercise of the NQSO and the exercise price of the NQSO. There are no tax
consequences to the Company if a NQSO lapses before exercise or is forfeited.
 
  An employee who receives an ISO is not subject to federal income tax on the
grant or exercise of the ISO; however, the difference between the option price
and the fair market value of the Common Stock received on the exercise of the
ISO ("ISO Stock") is an adjustment for purposes of the alternative minimum
tax. Upon the exercise of an ISO, an employee will have a basis in the ISO
Stock received equal to the amount paid. An employee will be subject to
capital gain or loss upon the sale of ISO Stock, unless such sale constitutes
a Disqualifying Disposition, equal to the difference between the amount
received for the stock and the employee's basis in such. The gain or loss will
be long- or short-term, depending on the length of time the ISO Stock was held
prior to disposition. There are no tax consequences to an employee if an ISO
lapses before exercise or is forfeited.
 
  In the event of a Disqualifying Disposition, an employee will be required to
recognize (1) taxable ordinary income in an amount equal to the difference
between the fair market value of the ISO Stock on the date of exercise of the
ISO and the exercise price; and (2) capital gain or loss (long- or short-term,
as the case may be) in an amount equal to the difference between (a) the
amount realized by the employee upon the Disqualifying Disposition and (b) the
exercise price paid by the employee for the stock, increased by the amount of
ordinary income recognized by the employee, if any. If the disposition
generates an allowable loss (e.g., a sale to an unrelated party not within 30
days of purchase of Common Stock), then the amount required to be recognized
by the employee as ordinary income will be limited to the excess, if any, of
the amount realized on the sale over the basis of the stock.
 
                                      61

  The Employee Plan allows an employee to pay an exercise price in cash or
shares of the Company's Common Stock. If the employee pays with shares of the
Company's Common Stock that are already owned, the basis of the newly acquired
ISO Stock will depend on the tax character and number of shares of the
previously owned stock used as payment. If an employee pays with shares
acquired upon other than the exercise of an ISO ("non-ISO Stock"), the
transaction will be tax-free to the extent that the number of shares received
does not exceed the number of shares of non-ISO Stock paid. The basis of the
number of shares of newly acquired ISO Stock which does not exceed the number
of shares of non-ISO Stock paid will be equal to the basis of the shares paid.
The employee's holding period with respect to such shares will include the
holding period of the shares of non-ISO Stock paid. To the extent that the
employee receives more new shares than shares surrendered, the "excess" shares
of ISO Stock will take a zero basis. If an employee exercises an ISO by using
stock that is previously acquired ISO Stock, however, certain special rules
apply. If the employee has not held the previously acquired ISO Stock for at
least two years from the date of grant of the related ISO and one year from
the date the employee acquired the previously acquired ISO Stock, the use of
such ISO Stock to pay the exercise price will constitute a Disqualifying
Disposition and subject the employee to income tax with respect to the ISO
Stock as described above. In such circumstances, the basis of the newly
acquired ISO Stock will be equal to the fair market value of the previously
acquired ISO Stock used as payment.
 
  The grant of a NQSO has no immediate tax consequences to an employee. The
exercise of a NQSO requires an employee to include in gross income the amount
by which the fair market value of the acquired shares exceeds the exercise
price on the exercise date. The Company is required to withhold income and
employment taxes from the employee's wages on account of this income. The
employee's basis in the acquired shares will be their fair market value on the
date of exercise. Upon a subsequent sale of such shares, the employee will
recognize capital gain or loss equal to the difference between the sales price
and the basis in the stock. The capital gain or loss will be long- or short-
term, depending on the length of time that the employee held the shares. There
are no tax consequences to an employee if a NQSO lapses before exercise or is
forfeited. If an employee uses previously owned Common Stock as payment for
the exercise price of a NQSO, to the extent the employee surrenders the same
number of shares received, the exchange is tax-free and the new shares will
have a basis equal to that of the shares surrendered. The holding period for
the new shares, moreover, will include the period the employee held the
surrendered shares. To the extent the employee receives more new shares than
shares surrendered, the "excess" shares are treated as having been acquired
for no consideration and the fair market value of such "excess" shares is
includible in the employee's income as compensation. The basis of the "excess"
shares is their fair market value at the time of receipt. If the previously
owned shares consist of ISO Stock for which the holding requirements were not
met such that their use as payment of the exercise price constituted a
Disqualifying Disposition, the employee will have the income tax consequences
described above.
 
  The Board of Directors has authority to suspend, terminate or discontinue
the Employee Plan or revise or amend it in any manner with respect to options
granted after the date of revision. No such revision, however, can change the
aggregate number of shares subject to the Employee Plan, change the
designation of employees eligible thereunder, or decrease the price at which
options may be granted. The Board may not grant any options under the Employee
Plan after January 2, 2005.
 
  Mr. Singh did not receive a grant or exercise any stock option or stock
appreciation right prior to or during the last fiscal year.
 
  Director Stock Option Plan. The Company also established a Director Plan on
July 27, 1995. The purpose of the Director Plan is to encourage ownership in
the Company by outside directors (present or future incumbent directors who
are not employees of the Company or any subsidiary) whose services are
considered essential to the Company's continued progress. Options granted
under the Director Plan are NQSOs. The Director Plan is administered by a
committee of the Board of Directors consisting of those directors who are not
eligible to receive grants thereunder. The total number of shares of Common
Stock for which options may be granted pursuant to the Director Plan is    .
On the effective date of the Director Plan or the first date thereafter that
any director becomes eligible to receive an award under the Director Plan,
each eligible director will
 
                                      62

<PAGE>
 
automatically receive an option to purchase     shares of Common Stock,
exercisable for     shares immediately, and     on each of the next two
anniversary dates of the grant date. All options become immediately
exercisable, however, upon the retirement of a director in accordance with any
mandatory retirement policy of the Board, upon the death or permanent
disability of a director, or if the Company merges with another Company and is
not the surviving corporation, the Company enters into an agreement to sell or
otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of its assets, or any person or
group acquires more than 20% of the Company's outstanding voting stock.
 
  The option price is the fair market value at the date on which an option is
granted. Payment for the exercise of options may consist of cash or Common
Stock. Options issued under the Director Plan are not transferrable other than
by will or the laws of descent and distribution. Options expire upon the
earlier of five years from the date they were granted or three years following
either the retirement or resignation of the director, the failure of the
director to be re-elected, or the permanent disability or death of the
director. No options may be granted under the Director Plan after December 31,
2005.
 
  The grant of a NQSO has no immediate tax consequences to the Company. Upon
the exercise of a NQSO by a director, the Company is entitled to a deduction
in an amount equal to the difference between the fair market value of the
share acquired through exercise of the NQSO and the exercise price of the
NQSO. There are no tax consequences to the Company if a NQSO lapses before
exercise or is forfeited.
 
  The tax consequences to a director upon the grant and exercise of a NQSO,
and the sale of Common Stock acquired upon exercise thereof, are identical to
those described for NQSOs under "--Employee Stock Option Plan" above, except
that the Company has no withholding obligations upon the exercise of a NQSO by
a director.
 
EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT
 
  The Company has entered into an employment agreement with Mr. Singh (the
"Singh Agreement"). The Singh Agreement is a five-year contract, with a term
beginning on June 1, 1994 and continuing until May 30, 1999, and from year to
year thereafter unless terminated. Under the terms of the Singh Agreement, Mr.
Singh is required to devote his full time efforts to the Company as Chairman
of the Board, President and CEO. The Company is required to compensate Mr.
Singh at an annual rate of $185,000 (which amount is reviewed annually by the
Board of Directors and is subject to increase at their discretion). Mr. Singh,
however, agreed to defer payment of his base salary from June 1, 1994 through
May 31, 1995, which was subsequently paid to him on July 31, 1996. The Company
is also obligated to (i) allow Mr. Singh to participate in any bonus or
incentive compensation plan approved for senior management of the Company,
(ii) provide life insurance in an amount equal to three times Mr. Singh's base
salary and disability insurance which provides monthly payments in an amount
equal to one-twelfth of his then applicable base salary, (iii) provide medical
insurance and (iv) pay up to $2,500 annually for Mr. Singh's personal tax and
financial planning services.
 
  The Company may terminate the Singh Agreement at any time in the event of
his disability or for cause, each as defined in the Singh Agreement. Mr. Singh
may resign from the Company at any time without penalty (other than the non-
competition obligations discussed below). If the Company terminates the Singh
Agreement for disability or cause, the Company will have no further
obligations to Mr. Singh. If, however, the Company terminates the Singh
Agreement other than for disability or cause, the Company will have the
following obligations: (i) if the termination is after May 30, 1999, the
Company must pay Mr. Singh one-twelfth of his then applicable base salary as
severance pay; and (ii) if the termination is before June 1, 1999, the Company
must pay to Mr. Singh, as they become due, all amounts otherwise payable if he
had remained employed by the Company until June 1, 1999. If Mr. Singh resigns,
he may not directly or indirectly compete with the Company's business until
six months after his resignation. If the Company terminates Mr. Singh's
employment for any reason, Mr. Singh may not directly or indirectly compete
with the Company's business until six months after the final payment of any
amounts owed to him under the Singh Agreement become due.

                             CERTAIN TRANSACTIONS
 
PRIVATE EQUITY SALE
 
  In July 1996, Primus completed the sale of         shares of Common Stock to
the (i) Quantum Industrial Partners LDC, the principal operating subsidiary of
Quantum Industrial Holdings Ltd., an investment fund advised by Soros Fund
Management, a private investment firm owned by Mr. George Soros, (ii) Winston
Partners II LDC, the principal operating subsidiary of Winston Partners II
Offshore Ltd., an investment fund advised by Chatterjee Management Company, a
private entity owned by Dr. Purnendu Chatterjee, (iii) Winston Partners II
LLC, an investment fund advised by Chatterjee Management Company and (iv) S-C
Phoenix Holdings, L.L.C., an investment vehicle owned by affiliates of Mr.
Soros and Dr. Chatterjee, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately
$8.0 million. The Soros/Chatterjee Group also purchased, for an additional
$8.0 million, the Soros/Chatterjee Warrants which afford the Soros/Chatterjee
Group the right to receive, upon exercise, an indeterminate number of shares
of Common Stock with a fair market value of $10.0 million as of the date of
exercise, plus up to         additional shares of Common Stock. Except for
        shares (of the         shares) which are currently exercisable, the
Soros/Chatterjee Warrants are exercisable on or after July 31, 1997 and until
July 31, 1999. The Soros/Chatterjee Warrants are entitled to certain customary
antidilution protection in the event of stock splits, stock dividends,
reorganizations and other similar events.
 
  The Soros/Chatterjee Group was granted registration rights pursuant to a
registration rights agreement with the Company (the "Registration Rights
Agreement"). Under the Registration Rights Agreement, the Soros/Chatterjee
Group is entitled to demand registration of its shares after July 31, 1998, a
maximum of three times, the third demand being available only if the
Soros/Chatterjee Group has not registered 80% of its shares of Common Stock
after the first demand registration. The Company is not required to effect any
demand registration within 180 days after the effective date of a previous
demand registration and may postpone, on one occasion in any 365-day period
the filing or effectiveness of a registration statement for a demand
registration for up to 120 days under certain circumstances, including pending
material transactions or the filing by the Company of a registration statement
relating to the sale of shares for its own account. The Soros/Chatterjee Group
is also entitled to unlimited piggyback registrations. Such rights with
respect to this Offering have been waived. All such registrations would be at
the Company's expense, exclusive of underwriting discounts and commissions,
and legal fees (up to $25,000 for each such offering) incurred by the holders
of the registrable securities. The Company and the Soros/Chatterjee Group have
entered into customary indemnification and contribution provisions.
 
  The Soros/Chatterjee Group also entered into a securityholders agreement
with the Company and K. Paul Singh (the "Securityholders Agreement") under
which the Soros/Chatterjee Group has the right to appoint a nominee for a
position as a member of the Board of Directors of the Company (and Mr. Singh
has agreed to vote shares over which he has voting control for such nominee).
Pursuant to this agreement, members of the Soros/Chatterjee Group were granted
preemptive rights in connection with most future issuances of capital stock,
including public offerings. Such rights were waived with respect to this
Offering. Additionally, members of the Soros/Chatterjee Group are entitled to
tag-along rights to participate with Mr. Singh and members of his family in
sales of capital stock on the same terms and conditions as Mr. Singh and
members of his family. See "Description of Capital Stock--Registration
Rights." The Soros/Chatterjee Group shares are also subject to drag along
rights in the event holders of a majority of the Common Stock decide to sell
80% or more of the outstanding capital stock of the Company. The
Securityholders Agreement provides that members of the Soros/Chatterjee Group
will not transfer shares of Common Stock to a company, or any affiliate, that
competes with the Company to a material extent in the provision of
telecommunications services in the United States, Australia, the United
Kingdom, France, Germany, Mexico, Canada, Italy or Hong Kong.
 
TELEGLOBE
 
  The Company entered into an agreement on January 12, 1996 with Teleglobe,
pursuant to which Teleglobe purchased         shares of Common Stock for a
total of $1,458,060. The equity investment was consummated
 
                                      64

<PAGE>
 
in February 1996 as was by a loan by Teleglobe of $2.0 million to the Company.
The loan, which bears interest at 6.9% per annum (payable quarterly) and
matures on February 9, 1998, is secured by all the assets of the Company,
comprised principally of the stock of the subsidiaries (65% of the stock of
foreign subsidiaries was pledged). Related to the Teleglobe investments, the
Company and a number of its subsidiaries have entered into trading agreements
with Teleglobe with respect to their respective service offerings. The parties
have also agreed to cooperate in an effort to maximize efficiencies with
respect to network facilities.
 
  As part of the transaction, Teleglobe, the Company and Mr. Singh are party
to a shareholders' agreement (the "Teleglobe Agreement") providing Teleglobe
the same consent, preemptive and registration rights as may be granted in the
future to other shareholders of an equal or lesser percentage ownership in the
Company, and participation and tag-along rights whereby Teleglobe is entitled
to sell its shares of Common Stock when certain other shareholders sell or
when the Company issues equity securities that would result in a change of
control of the Company. The Teleglobe Agreement also obligates Teleglobe to
sell its shares if certain other shareholders sell and specified conditions
are met, and grants the Company a right of first refusal upon a sale of the
Teleglobe-owned Common Stock to any competitor of the Company. Teleglobe
waived any preemptive rights and registration rights that arose as a result of
the Private Equity Sale. See "--Teleglobe".
 
NSI PRIVATE PLACEMENTS
 
  In 1995 and 1996, the Company engaged Northeast Securities, Inc. ("NSI") to
serve as the placement agent for two private placements of the Company's
Common Stock. Mr. Andrew B. Krieger, a director of Primus, served as a broker-
dealer in the private placements through an affiliation with NSI. In
connection with these offerings, the Company paid Mr. Krieger cash commissions
aggregating approximately $1,007,000. The Company also retained Krieger
Associates, of which Mr. Krieger is the President and Chief Executive Officer,
to perform certain financial and other consulting services and paid a total of
approximately $77,000 for the performance of such services during 1995 and
1996 (to date). In addition, in connection with these private placements, the
Company issued a total of 57,296 shares of Common Stock to Krieger Associates
and Mr. Krieger, and at the direction of Mr. Krieger issued a total of 21,888
shares of Common Stock to other individuals associated with the transaction.
The Company also issued, in connection with these private placements, a total
of 72,628 shares of Common Stock to NSI and certain of its employees
associated with the transactions. See "Management" and "Principal
Stockholders."
 
LOAN FROM CHAIRMAN AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
 
  In connection with the initial organization of the Company, K. Paul Singh,
the Company's Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, loaned the
Company approximately $320,000, accruing interest at a variable rate tied to
the prime rate. On March 31, 1995, the Company and Mr. Singh converted all
then outstanding principal and interest due ($350,000) into 164,318 shares of
Common Stock, at a price per share of $2.13, which shares were issued on such
date.
 
MANAGEMENT FEES
 
  Prior to the Company's acquisition of Axicorp, Axicorp paid a management fee
based on a percentage of revenue to a company owned primarily by certain
current officers of the Company, including Paul Keenan, Sim Thiam Soon and
Peter Slaney. Total management fees for the nine month period ended March 31,
1995, and the twelve month period ended March 31, 1996 were $616,000 and
$426,000, respectively.
 
LEGAL SERVICES
 
  From time to time, the Company has retained the law firm of Pepper, Hamilton
& Scheetz, of which John F. DePodesta, a director and an Executive Vice
President of the Company, is "of counsel," to perform legal services for it
and has paid such firm fees totaling $151,807 in 1996 (to date). See "Legal
Matters."

                         DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK
 
COMMON STOCK
 
  The Company is authorized to issue up to 10,455,000 shares of Common Stock,
par value $0.01 per share. As of July 31, 1996, the Company had presently
outstanding,     shares of Common Stock reserved for issuance upon exercise of
options granted pursuant to the Plans. An additional     shares of Common
Stock may be issued pursuant to the Soros/Chatterjee Warrants assuming such
warrants were exercised on the date of the Offering at an assumed price of
$   . The actual number of shares of Common Stock issuable under the
Soros/Chatterjee Warrants will be      shares plus an indeterminate number of
shares having a fair market value of $10 million as of the date of exercise.
Holders of shares of Common Stock are entitled to one vote per share on all
matters to be voted upon by the stockholders. Subject to such preferential
rights of the issued and outstanding Series A Stock more particularly
described below, and such preferential rights as the Company's Board of
Directors may grant in connection with future issuances of Preferred Stock,
holders of shares of Common Stock are entitled to receive such dividends as
the Board of Directors may declare in its discretion out of funds legally
available therefor. In the event of a liquidation, dissolution or winding up
of the Company, after payment of liabilities and any liquidation preference on
any shares of Preferred Stock then outstanding, the holders of shares of
Common Stock are entitled to a distribution of any remaining assets of the
Company. Holders of shares of Common Stock have no cumulative voting or
preemptive rights. All outstanding shares of Common Stock are, and the shares
of Common Stock offered hereby, when issued and paid for, will be, fully paid
and nonassessable.
 
PREFERRED STOCK
 
  The Company is authorized to issue up to 2,455,000 shares of Preferred
Stock, par value $0.01 per share, of which 455,000 shares are designated
Series A Stock. All shares of the Series A Stock were issued to the sellers in
the Axicorp transaction, 206,666 shares of which were delivered at closing and
the balance of which are being held by the Company to secure certain post-
closing obligations of the sellers. As a consequence of the consummation of
the Offering, all of the Series A Stock will convert into Common Stock.
 
  Dividends are paid on Series A Stock when, as and in the same amount as paid
from time to time on the Common Stock. Holders of Series A Stock are not
entitled to vote on matters related to the Company other than certain matters
related to the capital structure of the Company or matters for which the law
provides for such vote. If the Company grants preemptive rights in connection
with certain issuances, sales or exchanges of Common Stock of the Company or
of securities convertible into Common Stock of the Company, holders of Series
A Stock are also granted such preemptive rights. A holder of Series A Stock
has the right at any time after March 1, 1998 to convert its Series A Stock,
share for share, into Common Stock of the Company. Upon the occurrence of
certain events, including the elimination of certain foreign ownership
restrictions on the Company, the occurrence of certain transfers of the
Company's stock or assets, or the public offering of more than 20% of the
Company's Common Stock, shares of Series A Stock automatically convert into
shares of Common Stock of the Company. Any particular conversion of shares of
Series A Stock held by certain foreign owners into shares of Common Stock of
the Company may be limited by foreign ownership restrictions applicable to the
Company.
 
  In addition to the Series A Stock, the Company, without further action by
the Stockholders, is also authorized to issue up to 2,000,000 shares of other
Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share ("Other Preferred Stock"). The
Company's Board of Directors may determine the timing, series, designation and
number of shares of Other Preferred Stock to be issued, as well as the rights,
preferences and limitations of such shares, including those related to voting
power, redemption, conversion, dividend rights and liquidation preferences.
The issuance of Other Preferred Stock could adversely affect the voting power
of the holders of Common Stock of the Company or have the effect of deterring
or delaying any attempt by a person, entity or group to obtain control of the
Company. See "--Takeover Protection."

WARRANTS
 
  As of     , 1996, there were outstanding Soros/Chatterjee Warrants granting
the Soros/Chatterjee Group the right to receive, upon exercise,     shares of
Common Stock plus an indeterminate number of shares the fair market value of
which is $10.0 million on the date of exercise.     of the Soros/Chatterjee
Warrants are currently exercisable, with the remainder being exercisable on or
after July 31, 1997 and until July 31, 1999. The Soros/Chatterjee Warrants are
entitled to certain customary antidilution protection in the event of stock
splits, stock dividends, reorganizations and other similar events. The shares
of Common Stock issued pursuant to the Soros/Chatterjee Warrants as entitled
to certain registration rights described below. See "Certain Transactions--
Private Equity Sale."
 
REGISTRATION RIGHTS
 
  Soros. Pursuant to a registration rights agreement dated July 31, 1996, the
Soros/Chatterjee Group is entitled to demand registration of its shares of
Common Stock after July 31, 1998, up to three times, the third demand being
available only if the first two did not result in the Soros/Chatterjee Group
having registered 80% of its shares of Common Stock. The Company is not
required to effect any demand registration within 180 days after the effective
date of a previous demand registration and may postpone, on one occasion in
any 365-day period the filing or effectiveness of a registration statement for
a demand registration for up to 120 days under certain circumstances,
including pending material transactions or the filing by the Company of a
registration statement relating to the sale of shares for its own account. The
Soros/Chatterjee Group is also entitled to unlimited piggyback registrations.
Such rights with respect to this Offering have been waived. All such
registrations would be at the Company's expense, exclusive of underwriting
discounts and commissions, and legal fees (up to $25,000 for each such
offering) incurred by the holders of registrable securities. The Company and
the Soros/Chatterjee Group have entered into customary indemnification and
contribution provisions.
 
  Teleglobe. Under a shareholders' agreement between the Company, Mr. Singh
and Teleglobe, Teleglobe has the same consent, preemptive and registration
rights as may be granted in the future to other shareholders of an equal or
lesser percentage ownership in the Company. No such rights have been granted
to other shareholders other than in one instance in which Teleglobe waived its
rights. The shareholders' agreement also provides Teleglobe participation and
tag-along rights whereby Teleglobe is entitled to sell its shares of Common
Stock when certain other shareholders sell or when the Company issues equity
securities that would result in a change of control of the Company. The
agreement also obligates Teleglobe to sell its shares if certain other
shareholders sell and specified conditions are met, and grants the Company a
right of first refusal upon a sale of the Teleglobe-owned Common Stock to any
competitor of the Company.
 
TAKEOVER PROTECTION
 
  The Company is subject to Section 203 of the DGCL which, subject to certain
exceptions, prohibits a Delaware corporation, the voting stock of which is
generally publicly traded (i.e., listed on a national securities exchange or
authorized for quotation on an inter-dealer quotation system of a registered
national securities association) or held of record by more than 2,000
stockholders, from engaging in any "business combination" (as defined below)
with any "interested stockholder" (as defined below) for a period of three
years following the date that such stockholder became an interested
stockholder, unless: (i) prior to such date, the board of directors of the
corporation approved either the business combination or the transaction which
resulted in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder; (ii) upon
consummation of the transaction which resulted in the stockholder becoming an
interested stockholder, the interested stockholder owned at least 85% of the
voting stock of the corporation outstanding at the time the transaction
commenced, excluding for purposes of determining the number of shares
outstanding those shares owned (x) by persons who are directors and also
officers, and (y) by employee stock plans in which employee participants do
not have the right to determine confidentially whether shares held subject to
the plan will be tendered in a tender or exchange offer; or (iii) on or
subsequent to such date, the business combination is approved by the board of
directors and authorized at an
 
                                      69

<PAGE>
 
annual or special meeting of stockholders, and not by written consent, by the
affirmative vote of at least 66 2/3% of the outstanding voting stock which is
not owned by the interested stockholder. Section 203 of the DGCL defines
"business combination" to include: (i) any merger or consolidation involving
the corporation and the interested stockholder; (ii) any sale, transfer,
pledge or other disposition involving the interested stockholder of 10% or
more of the assets of the corporation; (iii) subject to certain exceptions,
any transaction which results in the issuance or transfer by the corporation
of any stock of the corporation to the interested stockholder; (iv) any
transaction involving the corporation which has the effect of increasing the
proportionate share of the stock of any class or series of the corporation
beneficially owned by the interested stockholder, or (v) the receipt by the
interested stockholder of the benefit of any loans, advances, guarantees,
pledges or other financial benefits provided by or through the corporation. In
general, Section 203 defines an "interested stockholder" as any person who,
together with any affiliates or associates of such person, beneficially owns,
directly or indirectly, 15% or more of the outstanding voting stock of a
Delaware corporation.
 
  Pursuant to the Company's Certificate of Incorporation, the Company's Board
of Directors is divided into three classes of directors each containing, as
nearly as possible, an equal number of directors. Directors within each class
are elected to serve three-year terms and approximately one-third of the
directors sit for election at each annual meeting of the Company's
stockholders. A classified board of directors may have the effect of deterring
or delaying any attempt by any group to obtain control of the Company by a
proxy contest since such third party would be required to have its nominees
elected at two separate annual meetings of the Board of Directors in order to
elect a majority of the members of the Board of Directors. Directors who are
elected to fill a vacancy (including vacancies created by an increase in the
number of directors) must be confirmed by the stockholders at the next annual
meeting of stockholders whether or not such director's term expires at such
annual meeting.
 
  The Company's By-Laws allow the Board of Directors to increase the number of
directors from time to time (though a decrease in the number of directors may
not have the effect of shortening the term of any incumbent director) and to
fill any vacancies on the Board of Directors, including vacancies resulting
from an increase in the number of directors. This provision is designed to
provide the Board of Directors with flexibility to deal with an attempted
hostile takeover by a stockholder who may acquire a majority voting interest
in the Company without paying a premium therefor. This provision allows the
Board of Directors to increase its size and prevent a "squeeze-out" of any
remaining minority interest soon after a new majority stockholder gains
control over the Company. Further, the By-Laws limit the new majority
stockholder's power to remove a current or all current directors before the
annual meeting in the absence of "cause." Cause for removal of a director is
limited to (i) a judicial determination that a director is of unsound mind,
(ii) a conviction of a director of an offense punishable by imprisonment for a
term of more than one year, (iii) a breach or failure by a director to perform

                        SHARES ELIGIBLE FOR FUTURE SALE
 
  Upon completion of this Offering, the Company will have     shares of Common
Stock outstanding. Of these shares, the     shares of Common Stock offered
hereby (plus up to     additional shares if the Underwriters exercise in full
their over-allotment option), will be freely tradeable without restriction or
further registration, except for shares purchased by "affiliates" or
"underwriters" of the Company, as these terms are defined under the Securities
Act, subject to the resale limitations of Rule 144 under the Securities Act
and the regulations promulgated thereunder. The remaining     shares of Common
Stock are restricted securities (the "Restricted Shares") and may not be sold
unless they are registered under the Securities Act or are sold pursuant to an
exemption from registration, such as the exemption provided by Rule 144 under
the Securities Act. Of these     Restricted Shares,     shares will be subject
to 180-day "lock-up" agreements with Lehman Brothers more particularly
described below. Upon expiration of such lock-up agreements,    of the
Restricted Shares will become eligible for sale, subject to compliance with
Rule 144. The remaining     Restricted Shares,     shares are immediately
eligible for sale and     shares will become eligible for sale at various
times over a period of less than two years. In addition, the shares underlying
certain warrants and options will become eligible for sole subject to
applicable lock-up agreements and compliance with Rule 144.
 
  In general, Rule 144 allows a person who has beneficially owned Restricted
Shares for at least two years, including persons who may be deemed affiliates
of the Company, to sell, within any three-month period, up to the number of
Restricted Shares that does not exceed the greater of (i) one percent of the
then outstanding shares of Common Stock, and (ii) the average weekly trading
volume during the four calendar weeks preceding the date on which notice of
the sale is filed with the Commission. A person who is not deemed to have been
an affiliate of the Company at any time during the 90 days preceding a sale
and who has beneficially owned his or her Restricted Shares for at least three
years would be entitled to sell such Restricted Shares without regard to the
volume limitations described above and certain other conditions of Rule 144.
The Commission has proposed certain amendments to Rule 144 that would reduce
by one year the holding periods required for shares subject to Rule 144 and
144(k) to become eligible for resale in the public market. This proposal, if
adopted, would increase the number of shares of Common Stock eligible for
immediate resale following the expiration of the lock-up to    agreements
described below. No assurance can be given concerning whether or when the
proposal will be adopted by the Commission.
 
  Under Rule 701, any employee, officer or director or consultant to the
Company who purchased shares pursuant to a written compensatory plan or
contract, including the Employee Plan and the Director Plan, who is not an
affiliate of the Company, is entitled to sell such shares without having to
comply with the public information, holding period, volume limitation or
notice provisions of Rule 144 and permits affiliates to sell such shares
without having to comply with the Rule 144 period restrictions, in each case
commencing 90 days after the Effective Date.
 
  The Company intends to file one or more registration statements under the
Securities Act to register Common Stock to be issued pursuant to the exercise
of options, including options granted or to be granted under the Employee Plan
and the Director Plan.
 
  The holders of approximately    shares of Common Stock upon the closing of
this Offering and    shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of
outstanding warrants and their permitted transferees and entitled to certain
demand and piggy-back registration rights in respect of their shares. See
"Description of Capital Stock--Registration Rights."
 
  Prior to this Offering, there has been no public market for the securities
of the Company. No predictions can be made of the effect, if any, that the
sale or availability for sale of shares of additional Common Stock will have
on the market price of the Common Stock. Nevertheless, sales of a substantial
number of such shares by existing stockholders or by stockholders purchasing
in this Offering could have a negative impact on the market price of the
Common Stock.

                         INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT
 
To the Board of Directors of Primus Telecommunications Group, Incorporated:
 
  We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Primus
Telecommunications Group, Incorporated and subsidiaries as of December 31,
1994 and 1995, and the related consolidated statements of operations,
stockholders' equity (deficit), and cash flows for the period from February 4,
1994 (date of incorporation) to December 31, 1994 and for the year ended
December 31, 1995. These financial statements are the responsibility of the
Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the
financial statements based on our audits.
 
  We conducted our audits in accordance with generally accepted auditing
standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to
obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of
material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence
supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit
also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant
estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial
statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis
for our opinion.
 
  In our opinion, such consolidated financial statements present fairly, in
all material respects, the financial position of Primus Telecommunications
Group, Incorporated and subsidiaries as of December 31, 1994 and 1995, and the
results of their operations and their cash flows for the period from February
4, 1994 (date of incorporation) to December 31, 1994 and the year ended
December 31, 1995, in conformity with generally accepted accounting
principles.

        PRIMUS TELECOMMUNICATIONS GROUP, INCORPORATED AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
                  NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
1. ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS
 
  Primus Telecommunications Group, Incorporated (the "Company"), formerly
Global Telecommunications, Inc., was incorporated in Delaware in February
1994. The Company was formed to capitalize on the increase in business and
consumer demand for international telecommunication services. The Company
operates as a holding company and currently has wholly-owned subsidiaries in
the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Mexico. Subsequent to
December 31, 1995, the Company purchased all of the outstanding capital stock
of Axicorp, Pty., Ltd. ("Axicorp"), an Australian telecommunications company
(see Note 12).
 
  In 1994, the Company, as a development stage enterprise, was involved in
various start-up activities including raising capital, obtaining licenses,
acquiring equipment, leasing space, developing markets, and recruiting and
training personnel. During 1995, the Company began revenue generating
operations and is no longer in the development stage.
 
2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
  Principles of Consolidation--The consolidated financial statements include
the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All
intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.
 
  Revenue Recognition--Revenues from long distance telecommunications services
are recognized when the services are provided.
 
  Cost of Revenue--Cost of revenue includes network costs which consist of
access, transport, and termination costs. Such costs are recognized when
incurred in connection with the provision of telecommunications services.
 
  Foreign Currency Translation--The assets and liabilities of the Company's
foreign subsidiaries are translated at the exchange rates in effect on the
reporting date, and income and expenses are translated at the average exchange
rate during the period. The net effect of such translation gains and losses
are accumulated as a separate component of stockholders' equity. Foreign
currency transaction gains and losses are included in Other Income (Expense)
in the consolidated statements of operations.
 
  Cash and Cash Equivalents--The Company considers cash on hand, deposits in
banks, certificates of deposit, and overnight repurchase agreements with
original maturities of three months or less as cash and cash equivalents.
 
  Property and Equipment--Property and equipment, which consists of furniture,
leasehold improvements, and telecommunications equipment, is stated at cost
less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Expenditures for maintenance
and repairs that do not materially extend the useful lives of the assets are
charged to expense. Depreciation and amortization are computed using the
straight-line method over estimated useful lives of the assets, less their net
salvage value, which range from three to eight years, or for leasehold
improvements and leased equipment, over the terms of the leases, whichever is
shorter.
 
  Intangible Assets--At June 30, 1996, intangible assets consist of goodwill
of $17,733,000 (unaudited) and customer lists of $4,269,000 (unaudited).
Goodwill is being amortized over 30 years on a straight-line basis and
customer lists over the estimated run-off of the customer base not to exceed
five years. Accumulated amortization at June 30, 1996, was $199,248
(unaudited) and $304,920 (unaudited) related to the goodwill and customer
lists, respectively.

        PRIMUS TELECOMMUNICATIONS GROUP, INCORPORATED AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
            NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(CONTINUED)
 
  New Accounting Pronouncements--As of January 1, 1996, the Company adopted
Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 121, Accounting for
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to be Disposed Of.
The adoption had no effect on the financial position or results of operations
of the Company. SFAS No. 123, Accounting for Stock Based Compensation, becomes
effective and will be adopted by the Company as of December 31, 1996. The
Company does not plan to adopt the recognition and measurement provisions of
SFAS No. 123.
 
  Use of Estimates--The preparation of financial statements in conformity with
generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates
and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at
the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of net revenue
and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from
those estimates.
 
  Concentration of Credit Risk--Financial instruments that potentially subject
the Company to concentration of credit risk principally consists of trade
accounts receivable. The Company's six largest customers account for
approximately 52% of gross accounts receivable as of December 31, 1995. At
June 30, 1996, no customer accounted for more than 10% (unaudited) of accounts
receivable. The Company performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers
but generally does not require collateral to support customer receivables.
Losses on uncollectible accounts have consistently been within management's
expectations.
 
  Income Taxes--The Company recognizes income tax expense for book purposes
following the asset and liability approach for computing deferred income
taxes. Under this method, the deferred tax asset and liability are determined
based on the difference between financial reporting and tax basis of assets
and liabilities. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance
when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some
portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.
 
  Deferred Costs--Legal, investment banking, and other incremental costs
associated with raising capital are recorded as deferred costs and are
included in Other Assets on the consolidated balance sheet. Such costs are
subsequently netted against the proceeds of the stock offerings to which they
relate. In the event that the offering is not successful, such costs would be
written off to operations in the period in which the related offering is
abandoned. Such amounts total $30,263 and $60,125 at December 31, 1994 and
1995, respectively. Subsequent to December 31, 1995, these costs have been
netted against the respective transactions. The Company has also capitalized
$92,609 related to the Axicorp acquisition at December 31, 1995 (see Note 12).
Such amounts were included in the purchase price accounting at acquisition.
There are no deferred costs included in the consolidated balance sheet at June
30, 1996 (unaudited).
 
  Net Loss Per Share--Net loss per common and common share equivalents at the
effective date of the Registration Statement will be computed based upon the
weighted average number of common and common share equivalents, outstanding
during each period. Common share equivalents consist of stock options
calculated using the treasury stock method. Retroactive restatement will be
made to share and per share amounts for the stock split contemplated by the
Company as part of its initial public offering. Primary and fully diluted loss
per share are the same. Pursuant to Securities and Exchange Commission Staff
Accounting Bulletin No. 83, common stock and options to purchase common stock
issued subsequent to August  , 1995 at prices below the assumed initial public
offering price will be included as outstanding for all periods presented,
using the treasury stock method at the assumed initial public offering price
even though the effect is to reduce the net loss per share.
 
 
  Interim Financial Information--The interim financial data as of June 30,
1996 and for the six-month periods ended June 30, 1995 and 1996, is unaudited.
The information reflects all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring
adjustments that, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present
fairly the financial position and results of operations of the Company for the
periods indicated. Results of operations for the interim periods are not
necessarily indicative of the results of operations for the full year.

obligations (unaudited):
 
    Equipment financing represents the purchase of network switching
  equipment for use in its Australian network financed by the vendor.
  Beginning in January 1997, 16 monthly payments of approximately $100,000
  are due to the vendor. In addition, a payment of approximately $788,000
  plus accrued interest is due in May 1998. Interest will accrue at the
  Corporate Overdraft Reference Rate plus 1%. At June 30, 1996, the Corporate
  Overdraft Reference Rate was 10.75%.
 
    In connection with an investment agreement, in February 1996 the Company
  issued a $2,000,000 note payable to Teleglobe, due February 9, 1998 which
  bears interest at 6.9% per annum payable quarterly.
 
    In connection with the acquisition of Axicorp on March 1, 1996, the
  Company issued two notes to the sellers for a total of $8.4 million (see
  Note 12).
 
    In addition, in conjunction with the Axicorp acquisition, the Company
  accrued approximately $3.5 million under a settlement obligation. This
  amount is expected to be paid during the next year.

  At December 31, 1995, the Company had a U.S. Federal net operating loss
carryforward of approximately $2,000,000, ($6,000,000 (unaudited) at June 30,
1996) that may be applied against future U.S. taxable income until it expires
between the years 2009 and 2010. The Company also has an Australian Federal
net operating loss carryforward of approximately $8.5 million (unaudited) at
June 30, 1996.
 
  Due to the "ownership change" of the Company in early 1996, pursuant to
Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code, the utilization of the net operating
loss carryforward will be limited to approximately $1.3 million per year
during the carryforward period. A further "ownership change" resulting from
the Company's planned initial public offering (see Note 13) could cause
further limitations.

6. FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
 
  The following methods and assumptions were used by the Company in estimating
its fair value disclosures for financial instruments:
 
    Cash and Cash Equivalents--The carrying amount reported in the balance
  sheets for cash and cash equivalents approximates fair value.
 
    Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable--The carrying amounts reported
  in the balance sheets for accounts receivable and accounts payable
  approximate fair value.
 
    Guarantee Required Under Telecommunications Agreement--The carrying
  amount reported in the balance sheets for the deposit held in the form of a
  certificate of deposit (see Note 7) approximates fair value plus accrued
  interest.
 
7. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
 
  The Company has entered into an employment contract with its Chairman and
Chief Executive Officer through May 30, 1999. Minimum payments over the
remaining period approximate $632,000 as of December 31, 1995 and $540,000

8. STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY
 
  The Company was incorporated in February 1994 through the issuance of 52,817
shares of common stock issued to the founder of the Company.
 
  In January 1995, the Company established an Employee Stock Option Plan (the
"Employee Plan"). The total number of shares of common stock authorized to be
issued under the Employee Plan was 250,000. Under the Employee Plan, awards
may be granted to key employees of the Company and its subsidiaries in the
form of Incentive Stock Options or Nonqualified Stock Options. The Employee
Plan allows the granting of options at an

exercise price of no less than 100% (110% in the case of Incentive Stock
Options granted to employees holding more than ten percent of the voting stock
of the Company at the date of grant) of the stock's fair value at the date of
grant. The options vest over a period of up to three years, and no option will
be exercisable more than ten years from the date it is granted. There were
96,450 shares of common stock that remain eligible for future issuance under
the Employee Plan at December 31, 1995. Subsequent to year end, an additional
250,000 shares of common stock were authorized to be issued under the Employee
Plan.
 
  Effective March 13, 1995, the Company's Amended and Restated Certificate of
Incorporation were amended to increase the number of authorized shares of the
Company's common stock from 1,000,000 shares to 5,000,000 shares and to split
each share of common stock outstanding on March 13, 1995, into 2.1126709
shares of common stock. All share amounts have been restated to give effect to
the stock split.
 
  In December 1995, $358,500 was committed to the Company in exchange for
35,850 shares of the Company's common stock in conjunction with a private
placement. The shares were paid for and issued in January 1996. This amount,
net of transaction costs, is recorded in Prepaid Expenses and Other Current
Assets at December 31, 1995.
 
  During 1995, the Board of Directors authorized the Director Stock Option
Plan (the "Director Plan") for nonemployee directors. Under the Director Plan,
an option is automatically granted to each nonemployee director to purchase
15,000 shares of common stock, which vests over a two-year period. The option
price per share is the fair market value of a share of common stock on the
date the option is granted. No option will be exercisable more than ten years
from the date of grant. An aggregate of 100,000 shares of common stock were
reserved for issuance under the Director Plan.
 
  A summary of stock option activity during the year ended December 31, 1995,
and the six months ended June 30, 1996, is as follows:

  Acquisition of Axicorp--On March 1, 1996, the Company completed the
acquisition of the outstanding capital stock of Axicorp, the fourth largest
telecommunications carrier in Australia. The purchase price consisted of cash,
Company stock, and seller financing. The Company paid $5.7 million cash,
including transaction costs, and issued 455,000 shares of its Series A
Convertible Preferred Stock. The Company also issued two notes to the sellers.
One note is for $4.1 million payable to Fujitsu Australia Limited which is due
in February 1997, and the other note is for a total of $4.0 million payable to
the individual shareholder sellers, which are due in two equal installments in
February 1997, and February 1998. These notes have been recorded at their
discounted value at the date of acquisition at an interest rate of 10.18%. The
portion of the shareholder note due in February 1997 can be extended for an
additional year at the Company's option. If the option is exercised the note
will accrue interest at the prime rate plus 1%.
 
  The sellers are holding as security approximately 25% of their shares in
Axicorp under a share mortgage for the unpaid notes. These shares will be
delivered to the Company when the notes are paid in full. In turn, the Company
is holding 248,334 shares of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock issued
to the sellers as collateral for the Axicorp shares withheld. These shares
will be released to the sellers once the remaining Axicorp shares are
received.
 
  For accounting purposes, the Company has treated the acquisition as a
purchase. Accordingly, the results of Axicorp's operations are included in the
consolidated results of operations of the Company beginning March 1, 1996.
 
  Pro forma operating results for the year ended December 31, 1995, and the
six months ended June 30, 1996, as if Axicorp had been acquired as of January
1, 1995, are as follows (unaudited):

                         NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
NOTE 1--THE COMPANY
 

 The Company
 
  Axicorp Pty., Ltd. ("Axicorp") was incorporated in Victoria, Australia in
1993. Axicorp's principal line of business is the provision of
telecommunication services.
 
  On March 1, 1996 Primus Telecommunications International, Inc. ("PTII"), a
wholly owned subsidiary of Primus Telecommunications Group Incorporated
("Primus"), a United States based long-distance telephone company, acquired
beneficial ownership of all of the outstanding capital stock in Axicorp in
issue at that date.
 
NOTE 2--SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
 Basis of Presentation
 
  These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally
accepted accounting principles in the United States.
 
 Revenue recognition
 
  Axicorp's revenues are derived primarily from long-distance, mobile, local
and data telecommunication charges and are recognized when such services are
provided. Axicorp also derives revenue from sale of mobile equipment and sale
of valued added services. Revenue from such services are recognized when
delivered and provided.
 
 Cost of revenue
 
  Cost of revenue comprises telecommunications network usage charges and other
direct costs incurred in providing telecommunication services to customers,
and are recognized as services are provided.
 
 Use of estimates
 
  The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally
accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and
assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and
disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial
statements and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting
period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
 Plant, Equipment and Computer Software
 
  Plant, equipment and computer software are stated at cost less accumulated
depreciation and amortization. Depreciation and amortization is computed using
the straight line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets.
 
  Axicorp has capitalized external software costs in relation to the
development of certain computer software, including a billing system, used by
Axicorp in its operations. As of March 31, 1995 and 1996 the accumulated
amortization for computer software is $20,145 and $137,404, respectively.
 
  Plant, equipment and computer software classes and their respective useful
lives are as follows:

                  NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(CONTINUED)
 
       The accompanying notes are an integral part of these statements.
 Foreign currency translation
 
  To date, Axicorp has conducted most of its business in Australian dollars.
The financial statements have been presented herein in U.S. dollars because
Primus's reporting currency is the U.S. dollar. All assets and liabilities are
translated into the U.S. dollar at the rate effective at the reporting date
and elements of the income statement are translated at average exchange rates
for the period. Translation differences are included in the foreign currency
translation adjustment (a component of stockholders' equity).
 
 Income Taxes
 
  Income taxes are computed using the asset and liability method. Under the
asset and liability method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined
based on the differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of
assets and liabilities and are measured using the currently enacted tax rates
and laws.
 
 Concentration of credit risk
 
  Financial instruments that potentially subject Axicorp to credit risk
consist principally of trade receivables from its customers in Australia.
Axicorp generally requires no collateral from its customers. However, Axicorp
maintains an allowance for bad and doubtful accounts receivable based on the
expected collectibility of all accounts receivable. At March 31, 1995 and 1996
no customer accounted for more than 10% of accounts receivable.
 
 Accounting for impairment of long-lived assets
 
  In March 1995, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued SFAS No. 121,
"Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets
to be Disposed of." SFAS 121 requires impairment losses to be recorded for
long-lived assets used in operations when indicators of impairment are present
and the undiscounted cash flows estimated to be generated by those assets are
less than the asset's carrying amount. SFAS 121 also addresses the accounting
for impairment losses associated with long-lived assets to be disposed of.
Axicorp adopted SFAS 121 in the first quarter of fiscal 1996. Adoption of SFAS
121 did not have a material impact on Axicorp's results of operations.
 
 Dividends
 
  Any dividend payments made by Axicorp would, under Australian Corporation
Law, be limited to Axicorp's retained earnings, which aggregated $560,751 at
March 31, 1996.
 
 Cash Equivalents
 
  Axicorp considers all liquid investments with a maturity of three months or
less to be cash equivalents.

       The accompanying notes are an integral part of these statements.
taxation purposes of amounts recorded as income receivable at year end which
are not taxable until their receipt in the following year of income.
Management believes that, based on the evidence of the performance of Axicorp
and other factors, the weight of available evidence indicates that it is more
likely than not that Axicorp will be able to utilize the carry forward tax
loss.

respectively, to a company owned primarily by officers and directors of
Axicorp. At March 31, 1995, Axicorp owed management fees of $238,000.
 
  At March 31, 1995 and 1996 Axicorp owed related parties $262,000 and
$1,678,000 respectively. The balance at March 31, 1996 is an unsecured loan,
interest at the prime rate of 12% and is repayable on demand.
 
NOTE 6--EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLAN
 
  Axicorp is currently required by law to contribute 6% of each employee's
salary to a pension fund for the employee's retirement. Axicorp's contribution

period July 1, 1994 to March 31, 1995 and the twelve months ended March 31,
1996, respectively.

ITEM 14. INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS.
 
  Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the "DGCL") permits
each Delaware business corporation to indemnify its directors, officers,
employees and agents against liability for each such person's acts taken in
his or her capacity as a director, officer, employee or agent of the
corporation if such actions were taken in good faith and in a manner which he
or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of
the corporation, and with respect to any criminal action, if he or she had no
reasonable cause to believe his or her conduct was unlawful. Article X of the
Company's Amended and Restated By-Laws provides that the Company, to the full
extent permitted by Section 145 of the DGCL, shall indemnify all past and
present directors or officers of the Company and may indemnify all past or
present employees or other agents of the Company. To the extent that a
director, officer, employee or agent of the Company has been successful on the
merits or otherwise in defense of any action, suit or proceeding referred to
in such Article X, or in defense of any claim, issue or matter therein, he or
she shall be indemnified by the Company against actually and reasonably
incurred expenses in connection therewith. Such expenses may be paid by the
Company in advance of the final disposition of the action upon receipt of an
undertaking to repay the advance if it is ultimately determined that such
person is not entitled to indemnification.
 
  As permitted by Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL, Article 11 of the Company's
Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation provides that no director of
the Company shall be liable to the Company for monetary damages for breach of
fiduciary duty as a director, except for liability (i) for any breach of the
director's duty of loyalty to the Company or its stockholders, (ii) for acts
or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a
knowing violation of law, (iii) for the unlawful payment of dividends on or
redemption of the Company's capital stock, or (iv) for any transaction from
which the director derived an improper personal benefit.
 
  The Company expects to obtain a policy insuring it and its directors and
officers against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the
Securities Act.
 
  The Underwriting Agreement filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Registration
Statement provides for indemnification by the Underwriters of the Registrant
and its officers and directors for certain liabilities arising under the
Securities Act or otherwise.

ITEM 15. RECENT SALES OF UNREGISTERED SECURITIES.
 
  The Company issued     shares of Common Stock to John F. DePodesta, its
incorporator, on February 4, 1994 for consideration of $250. Additionally, Mr.
Singh purchased     shares of Common Stock from the Company on June 1, 1994
for $250,000. A trust, the voting power of which is vested in Mr. Singh,
purchased     shares of Common Stock from the Company on September 30, 1994
for $250,000. During the fourth quarter of 1994, the Company issued to Mr.
Krieger, a director of the Company, in recognition of the support he gave to
the Company,     shares of Common Stock. No underwriter or placement agent
participated in any of the foregoing issuances of securities.
 
  During the first quarter of 1995, the Company sold its Common Stock to a
group of private investors consisting of certain family members and colleagues
of Mr. Singh and Mr. DePodesta. The investors paid $300,000 for     shares of
Common Stock in this transaction. On March 31, 1995, pursuant to an agreement
whereby Mr. Singh forgave certain indebtedness in the amount of $350,000 owed
him by the Company, the Company issued Mr. Singh     shares of Common Stock.
No underwriter or placement agent participated in any of the foregoing
issuances of securities.
 
  As of December 31, 1995,     shares of the Company's Common Stock were sold
for an aggregate price of $5,198,500 to investors familiar with Mr. Singh and
the Company. This sale was placed by Northeast Securities, Inc. ("NSI"), which
used Andrew Krieger as a selling agent. Underwriting commissions and other
expenses in this transaction were $787,440 and     shares of the Company's
Common Stock. On January 31, 1996, NSI and Mr. Krieger, both acting as
placement agents, privately placed     shares of the Company's Common Stock
for an aggregate price of $6,286,404 to other investors familiar with Mr.
Singh and the Company. Underwriting commissions and other expenses in this
transaction totalled $613,167 and     shares of the Company's Common Stock.
 
  On February 15, 1996, Teleglobe USA, Inc. invested in the Company by
purchasing     shares of the Company's Common Stock for $1,458,060. On March
1, 1996, in connection with the Company's purchase of Axicorp, certain vendors
of Axicorp received 455,000 shares of the Company's Series A Convertible
Preferred Stock, par value $.01 per share. In addition, on July 31, 1996, the
Soros/Chatterjee Group bought     shares of the Company's Common Stock for
approximately $8,000,000 and for $8,000,000 was issued warrants to purchase
additional shares of Common Stock. No underwriter or placement agent
participated in any of the foregoing issuances of securities.
 
  The Company believes that the foregoing described issuances of securities,
if they constitute sales, are exempt from registration under the Act by virtue
of the exemption provided by Section 4(2) thereof for transactions not
involving a public offering.

ITEM 17. UNDERTAKINGS
 
  The undersigned registrant undertakes that insofar as indemnification for
liabilities arising under the Act may be permitted to directors, officers and
controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or
otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the
Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the
Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for
indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the
Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling
person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or
proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in
connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless
in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling
precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether
such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act
and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

  information omitted from the form of prospectus filed as part of this
  Registration Statement in reliance upon Rule 430A and contained in a form
  of prospectus filed by the Registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(1) or (4) or
  497(h) under the Act shall be deemed to be part of this Registration
  Statement as of the time it was declared effective.
 
    (2) For purposes of determining any liability under the Act, each post-
  effective amendment that contains a form of prospectus shall be deemed to
  be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein,
  and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the
  initial bona fide offering thereof.
 
  The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes to provide to the Underwriters
at the closing specified in the underwriting agreements, certificates in such
denominations and registered in such names as required by the Underwriters to
permit prompt delivery to each purchaser.

<PAGE>
 
          8.   Elections
 of directors need not be by written ballot unless the
by-laws of the corporation shall so provide.

               Meetings of stockholders may be held within or without the State
of Delaware, as the by-laws may provide. The books of the corporation may be
kept (subject to any provision contained in applicable statutes) outside the
State of Delaware at such place or places as may be designated from time to time
by the board of directors or in the by-laws of the corporation.

          9.   The corporation reserves the right to amend, alter, change or
repeal any provision contained in this certificate of incorporation and in any
certificate amendatory hereof, in the manner now or hereafter prescribed by
statute, and all rights conferred upon stockholders or others hereunder or
thereunder are granted subject to this reservation.

          10.1 Any transfer or attempted or purported transfer of any shares of
capital stock of the corporation to any alien, which would place the corporation
in violation of Section 310(b) of the Communication Act (47 USC Section 310(b)),

corporation shall not recognize the purported transferee as a stockholder of the
corporation for any purpose whatsoever.

          10.2 The by-laws of the corporation shall contain provisions to
implement and enforce the provisions and intent of this Article.  In addition,
the board of directors shall make such rules and regulations as it deems
necessary and desirable to implement and enforce the provisions and intent of
this Article

                                      -2-

to ensure the corporation's compliance with 47 USC Section 310(b) and to

          11.  No director of the corporation shall be personally liable to the

for acts of omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct
or a knowing violation of law, (iii) under Section 174 of the Delaware General
Corporation Law, or (iv) for any transaction from which the director derived an
improper personal benefit.  If the Delaware General Corporation Law hereafter is
amended to authorize the further elimination or limitation of the liability of
directors, then the liability of a director of the corporation, in addition to
the limitation on personal liability provided herein, shall be limited to the
fullest extent permitted by the amended Delaware General Corporation Law, and
such elimination or limitation of liability shall be in addition to, and not in
lieu of, the limitation on the liability of a director provided by the foregoing
provision of this Eleventh Article.  Any repeal or modification of this
paragraph by the stockholders of the corporation shall be prospective only, and
shall not adversely affect any limitation on the personal liability of a
director of

                                      -3-

<PAGE>
 
the corporation existing at the time of such repeal or modification.

          12.  The corporation shall, to the fullest extent permitted by Section
145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law, as amended from time to time,
indemnify each person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party
to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether
civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, by reason of the fact that he
is or was, or has agreed to become, a director or officer of the corporation, or
is or was serving, or has agreed to serve, at the request of the corporation, as
a director, officer or trustee of, or in a similar capacity with, another
corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise (including
any employee benefit plan), or by reason of any action alleged to have been
taken or omitted in such capacity, against all expenses (including attorneys'
fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably
incurred by such person or on such person's behalf in connection with such
action, suit or proceeding any appeal therefrom.

          Indemnification may include payment by the corporation of expenses in
defending an action or proceeding in advance of the final disposition of such
action or proceeding upon receipt of an undertaking by the person indemnified to
repay such payment if it is ultimately determined that such person is not
entitled to indemnification under this Twelfth Article, which undertaking

                                      -4-

<PAGE>
 
may be accepted without reference to the financial ability of such person to
make such repayment.

          The corporation shall not indemnify any such person seeking
indemnification in connection with a proceeding (or part thereof) initiated by
such person unless the initiation thereof was approved by the board of directors
of the corporation.

          The indemnification rights provided in this Twelfth Article (i) shall
not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which those indemnified may be
entitled under any law, agreement or vote of stockholders or disinterested
directors or otherwise, and (ii) shall inure to the benefit of the heirs,
executors and administrators of such persons.  The corporation may, to the
extent authorized from time to time by its board of directors, grant
indemnification rights to other employees or agents of the corporation or other
persons serving the corporation and such rights may be equivalent to, or greater
or less than, those set forth in this Twelfth Article.

          I, THE UNDERSIGNED, being the sole incorporator hereinbefore named,
for the purpose of forming a corporation pursuant to the General Corporation Law
of the State of Delaware, do make this certificate, hereby declaring and
certifying that this is my act and deed and the facts herein stated are true,
and accordingly have hereunto set my hand this 4th day of February, 1994.

          RESOLVED:  that the Certificate of Incorporation of Primus

     4.   Authorized Shares:  Powers, Preferences and Rights.
          --------------------------------------------------

          4.1.  Authorized Shares.  The aggregate number of shares that the
                -----------------

the State of Delaware (or any successor provision thereto) in respect of any
class or classes of stock or any series of any class of stock of the
corporation.

<PAGE>
 
     4.2  Rights, Designations, Preferences and Limitations.
          -------------------------------------------------

               a.   Dividends.  Holders of Series A Preferred Stock shall be
                    ---------
entitled, as may be determined by the board of directors of the corporation, to
receive dividends out of any funds legally available therefor when and as
declared and in the same amounts as paid on Common Stock on a per share Common
Stock equivalent basis based on the then effective conversion ratio of Series A
Preferred Stock to Common Stock.

               b.   Liquidation.  Upon any liquidation, dissolution or winding
                    -----------   
up of the corporation the holders of outstanding shares of Series A Preferred
Stock will be entitled to be paid out of the assets of the corporation before
any distribution or payment is made upon the Common Stock or any other equity
securities of the corporation ranking junior in liquidation to the Series A
Preferred Stock, and pari passu with any other preference stock of the
corporation, an amount in cash equal to the sum of $0.01 per share, plus the
amount of all accrued and unpaid dividends with respect to such share of Series
A Preferred Stock, plus the amount that would be paid on such liquidation to the
holders of Series A Preferred Stock if all such holders had, immediately prior
to such liquidation, converted their shares of Series A Preferred Stock to
shares of Common Stock (the "Liquidation Value"). If, upon any such liquidation,
dissolution or winding up of the corporation, the corporation's assets to be
distributed among the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock are insufficient
to permit payment to such holders of the aggregate amount which they are
entitled to be paid pursuant to the preceding sentence, then the entire assets
to be distributed will be distributed ratably among such holders based upon the
aggregate Liquidation Value of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by
each such holder. The corporation will mail written notice of such liquidation,
dissolution or winding up, not less than 60 days prior to the effective date
thereof to each record holder of Series A Preferred Stock.

               c.   Voting Rights.  Except as provided otherwise herein or
                    -------------
as required by the General Corporation Law of Delaware, holders of Series A
Preferred Stock shall not be entitled to vote either individually or as a single
class with the holders of Common Stock; provided, however, that in the event
                                        --------  -------
that the General Law of Delaware or any other applicable law should entitle the
holders of Series A Preferred Stock to vote, the holders of Series A Preferred
Stock shall be entitled to vote together with holders of Common Stock in a
single class with holders of Series A Preferred Stock entitled to cast the
number of votes that they would have were the Series A Preferred Stock to be
converted into Common Stock prior to such vote, unless, however, the applicable
law expressly requires a separate class vote.

                                      -2-

               d.   Class Voting Rights.  Holders of Series A Preferred Stock
                    -------------------
shall vote as a separate class on, and the affirmative vote of a majority of the
outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall be required to authorize,
any action which would:

                    (1)  in any manner authorize, create or issue any class or
series of capital stock ranking, as to distribution of assets on liquidation,

                    ---------------------------- 

                    (1)  (i)  Subject in all cases to the limitations set
forth in this Section 4.2e, the holders of each share of Series A Preferred
Stock shall have the right at any time following the Nonconversion Period to
convert each such share of Series A Preferred Stock into one fully paid and
nonassessable share of Common Stock or such number of shares of Common Stock as
determined in accordance with clause (ii) of this Section 4.2e(1).

                         (ii)  In case of any capital reorganization,
reclassification, stock split, combination, or exchange of shares, or in the
case of a merger or consolidation of the corporation with another entity (in the
case of a merger, wherein the corporation is the surviving entity), each share
of Series A Preferred Stock, after such reorganization, reclassification, stock
split, combination, exchange of shares, merger or consolidation, shall be
convertible into that kind and number of shares of Common Stock of the
corporation or surviving corporation as to which such share of Series A
Preferred Stock

                                      -3-

would have been entitled if such share of Series A Preferred Stock had been
converted into Common Stock immediately prior to any of those events.

                    (2)  Upon the occurrence of a Mandatory Event of Conversion,
all shares of Series A Preferred Stock then outstanding shall, by virtue of, and
simultaneously with, the occurrence of the Mandatory Event of Conversion and
without any action on the part of the holder thereof, automatically become
shares of Common Stock; provided, however, that:
                        --------  -------  ----

                         (i)  upon the occurrence of a Mandatory Event of 
Conversion specified in clause (ii) or (iii) of the definition of "mandatory
Event of Conversion," shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by persons who are
then listed in the corporation's records as Aliens shall only be converted to
the extent there are Available Shares (as calculated as of the applicable
Mandatory Event of Conversion). For purposes of this clause (i), Available
Shares shall be divided among the Alien holders of Series A Preferred Stock
ratably according to their respective Alien Percentage Interests. Shares of
Series A Preferred Stock not converted due to insufficient Available Shares
shall continue as shares of Series A Preferred Stock with all the rights,
designations, preferences and limitations set forth herein and shall be
converted when and as Available Shares become available; and

                         (ii)  upon the occurrence of the Mandatory Event of
Conversion specified in clause (iv) of the definition thereof, only those shares
of Series A Preferred Stock held by stockholders who did not approve the
corporate action subject to vote (such non-assenting stockholders, the "Non-
Assenting Stockholders"; stockholders who failed to vote their shares shall not
be considered Non-Assenting Stockholders) shall be converted and, with respect
to Non-Assenting Stockholders who are then listed in the corporation's records
as Aliens ("Non-Assenting Aliens"), such shares shall only be converted to the
extent there are Available Shares (as calculated as of the applicable Mandatory
Event of Conversion). For purposes of this clause (ii), Available Shares shall
be divided among the Non-Assenting Aliens ratably in accordance with the
proportion that their individual Alien Percentage Interest bears to the
aggregate Alien Percentage Interests of all Non-Assenting Aliens. In the event
that the number of Available Shares (as calculated as of the applicable
Mandatory Event of Conversion) is less than the number of shares of Series A
Preferred Stock held by non-Assenting Aliens, the board of directors of the
corporation may, in its discretion, waive, for purposes of this clause (ii)
only, the Alien Percentage Limitation with respect to the shares held by the 
Non-Assenting Aliens. Should the board of directors of the corporation not waive
the Alien Percentage Limitation in accordance with the foregoing sentence within
thirty (30) days

                                      -4-

after the applicable Mandatory Event of Conversion, the corporation shall have
the right, for a period of one-hundred and twenty (120) days following the date
of the applicable Mandatory Event of Conversion, at its option and to the extent
there are funds of the corporation available therefor, to redeem the unconverted
shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by Non-Assenting Aliens at ninety-five
percent (95%) of the fair market value of such shares as determined by an
independent appraiser selected by the board of directors and the Non-Assenting
Aliens, which fair market value shall include the value of all accrued but
unpaid dividends with respect to such shares.  If the Board of Directors of the
corporation and the Non-Assenting Aliens cannot agree upon a person to act as
independent appraiser within thirty (30) days after the applicable Mandatory
Event of Conversion, the board of directors shall request Deloitte & Touche to
appoint an independent appraiser.  In the event that the funds of the
corporation are insufficient to redeem all the shares of Series A Preferred
Stock of the Non-Assenting Aliens at such time, funds then available shall be
distributed ratably among such Non-Assenting Aliens when and as they become
available, and such redemption right shall continue until such time as the
corporation's funds become available therefor; provided, however, that if the
                                               --------  -------  ----       
redemption right is not exercised within six (6) months after the determination
of the fair market value, then at any time after the expiration of the six (6)
month period either the corporation or the Non-Assenting Aliens shall be
entitled to require a new determination of the fair market value of the shares
of the Series A Preferred Stock.

                    (3)  The holder of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock
who is a Citizen may exercise the conversion right under Section 4.2e(1) hereof
with respect to all or any part of his shares of Series A Preferred Stock by
delivering to the office of any transfer agent of the corporation for the Series
A Preferred Stock, or to such other place as may be designated by the
corporation, his certificates for the shares to be converted, duly endorsed or
assigned in blank or to the corporation (if required by it), and a written
notice stating the Citizen name of names (with address) in which the
certificate(s) for the shares of Common Stock are to be issued.

                    (4)  The holder of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock
who is an Alien ("Alien Converting Stockholder") may exercise the conversion
right under Section 4.2e(1) hereof, subject to the Alien Percentage Limitation,
with respect to all or part of his shares of Series A Preferred Stock by
following the procedures set forth in this Section 4.2e(4). Each alien
Converting Stockholder shall be entitled to convert that number of shares
calculated by dividing the Available Shares, as calculated on the close of
business of the last day of the 30-Day Period (as defined in clause (i) below),
by the number resulting from the division of the Alien Percentage Interest of
the

                                      -5-

relevant Alien Converting Stockholder by the aggregate Alien Percentage
Interests of all Alien Converting Stockholders.

                         (i)  The Alien Converting Stockholder shall deliver to
the corporation written notice of such holder's intent to convert. Such notice
shall set forth the exact number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock which the
holder owns, the number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock the holder desires
to convert and the present citizenship of the holder. Upon receipt of such
notice, the corporation shall, in turn, send notice to all the record owners of
Series A Preferred Stock (the "Conversion Notice") which Conversion Notice shall
state (a) that the corporation has received notice of a stockholder's intent to
convert and (b) the number of Available Shares which the corporation anticipates
will be available for conversion. For a period of 30 days from the date of the
Conversion Notice (the "10-Day Period"), the corporation shall not convert any
shares of Series A Preferred Stock pursuant to this Section 4.2e(4).

                         (ii)  Any other Alien holder of Series A Preferred
Stock who also desires to have some or all of his shares of Series A Preferred
Stock converted shall provide written notice to the corporation prior to the
expiration of the 30-Day Period of his intent to convert, the exact number of
shares of Series A Preferred Stock which such holder owns, the number of shares
of Series A Preferred Stock such holder desires to convert and the present
citizenship of such holder.

                         (iii)  within five (5) days after the expiration of the
30-Day Period, the corporation shall provide notice to all Alien Converting
Stockholders who or which deliver notices to convert under clauses (i) or (ii)
of this Section 4.2e(4) during the applicable 30-Day Period of how many shares
within ten (10) days after the Alien Converting Stockholder's receipt of such
notice, the Alien Converting Stockholder must deliver to the office of any
transfer agent of the corporation for the Series A Preferred Stock, or to such
other place as may be designated by the corporation, the certificate or
certificates for the shares to be converted, duly endorsed or assigned in blank
or to the corporation (if required by it) and a written notice stating the name
or names (with address) in which the certificate or certificates for the shares
of Common Stock are to be issued.

                    (5)  Conversion shall be deemed to have been effected (i)
with respect to conversion effected pursuant to clause (3) or (4) above, on the
date when the delivery of certificates is made and (ii) with respect to
conversion effected pursuant to clause (2) above, on the date of occurrence of
the Mandatory Event of Conversion.

<PAGE>
 
                    (6)  As promptly as practicable after conversion, the 
corporation shall issue and deliver to or upon the written order of the holder,
to the place designated by such holder, a certificate or certificates for the
number of full shares of Common Stock to which such holder is entitled. The
person in whose names the certificate or certificates for Common Stock are to be
issued shall be deemed to have become a stockholder of record on the applicable
Conversion Date unless the transfer books of the corporation are closed on that
date, in which event he shall be deemed to have become a stockholder of record
on the next succeeding date on which the transfer books are open. Upon
conversion of only a portion of the number of shares covered by a certificate
representing shares of Series A Preferred Stock, surrendered for conversion, the
corporation shall issue and deliver to or upon the written order of the holder
of the certificate so surrendered for conversion, at the expense of the
corporation, a new certificate covering the number of shares of Series A
Preferred Stock, representing the unconverted portion of the certificate so
surrendered.

                    (7)  With respect to any conversion of Series A Preferred
Stock pursuant to Section 4.2e(1) hereof, the calculation of the Alien
Percentage Limitation shall be made by disregarding any Common Stock issuable
upon conversion of other convertible securities issued by the corporation and
outstanding at the time of the calculation.

individual percentage equity interests in the corporation equal to or less than
any of the individual equity percentage interests in the corporation of any of
the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock (calculated on a Fully Diluted

authorized in the specific case upon a determination that indemnification of the
director, officer, employee or agent is proper in the circumstances because he
or she has met the applicable standard of conduct set forth in such section.
Such determination shall be made:

               (a) By the Board of Directors by a majority vote of a quorum
consisting of directors who were not parties to such action, suit or proceeding,

investigative action, suit or proceeding may be paid by the Corporation in
advance of the final disposition of such action, suit or proceeding upon receipt
of an undertaking by or on behalf of such director or officer to repay such
amount if it shall ultimately be determined that he or she is not entitled to be
indemnified by the Corporation as authorized in this Section.  Such expenses
(including attorneys' fees) incurred by other employees and agents may be so
paid upon such terms and conditions, if any, as the board of directors deems
appropriate.

          "Permanently Unrestricted Share Certificate":  Means capital stock of

          "The transfer of the capital stock represented by this 
          Domestic Share Certificate is restricted by the Certi-
          ficate of Incorporation and By-laws of this Corporation.  
          Such documents are available from the Corporation, without 
          charge, for inspection.  Any transfer to any person or 
          entity other than (i) a Citizen of the United States who 
          is free from any direct or indirect foreign control or 
          (ii) a corporation or other entity free from any direct 
          or indirect foreign control, organized or existing under 
          the laws of the United States or a state of the United 
          States, is in contravention of the Certificate of Incor-
          poration and the By-laws and is void."

          Capital stock represented by an Unrestricted Share Certificate shall 
have the following legend noted conspicuously on its face:

                        "UNRESTRICTED SHARE CERTIFICATE"

          "The transfer of capital stock represented by this 
          Unrestricted Share Certificate is subject to certain 
          provisions of the Certificate of Incorporation and 
          By-laws of this Corporation.  Such documents are 
          available from the Corporation, without charge, for 
          inspection.  Such documents do not restrict the 
          transfer of the capital stock of the Corporation 
          evidenced by Unrestricted Share Certificates.  
          However, upon transfer of the capital stock of the

                                     -23-

<PAGE>
 
          corporation evidenced by this Certificate to an 
          individual or entity, who or which is not an Alien 
          and who or which does not hold such capital stock 
          on behalf of Aliens, the Corporation shall issue 
          such transferee capital stock of the Corporation 
          evidenced by Domestic Share Certificates, the sub-
          sequent transfer of which will be restricted by the 
          Certificate of Incorporation and the By-laws of the
          Corporation."

          Section 6.  At any special or annual meeting of the stockholders of
the corporation, any director or officer of the corporation may by notice in
writing filed at the meeting challenge the right of any holder of record of the
capital stock of the corporation evidenced by Domestic Share Certificates or
person voting on behalf of such recordholder to vote such shares on the ground
that the shares of capital stock of the corporation evidenced by such
certificates are not owned by a Citizen or Entity.  In the event that said
shares, the vote of which is thus challenged, together with other shares
challenged at the same meeting and for the same cause, together with the total
amount of shares represented by share certificates other than "Domestic Share
Certificates" then issued and outstanding, amount in the aggregate to be more
than twenty percent (20%) of the total shares of the corporation at the time
outstanding, the meeting shall proceed to record the votes of the other
stockholders not challenged and provisionally to record the votes of the
challenged shares.  If the result of the voting would not be changed or altered
by the receipt of all the challenged votes, then such challenge shall be
disregarded.  If the contrary appears, the meeting shall not proceed further,
but shall adjourn

                                     -24-

<PAGE>
 
for a period fixed by the Chairman.  The Board of Directors shall thereafter
meet and promptly investigate the challenges by such method and insofar as they
deem expedient, with or without according an opportunity for cross-examination,
but according to the person or persons who represented the challenged shares at
such stockholders' meeting an opportunity to make a statement in regard to the
challenge.  At the adjourned date of such meeting, the Board of Directors shall
report their opinion.  If they then report that the majority of those directors
present taking part in their deliberation as to the challenge or challenges are
of opinion that such challenges or any of them were well founded, such
challenged votes as to which their opinion in favor of the challenge applies
shall be rejected.  Otherwise the challenges shall be deemed ineffective and the
votes received.  No director shall be personally liable to any stockholder for
any action taken by him in the course of such investigation or because of the
rejection of any challenged vote or the failure to support any challenge.

          Section 7.  At any special or annual meeting of the stockholder of the
corporation, any director or officer of the corporation may, by notice in
writing filed at the meeting, challenge the vote of any holder of record of the
capital stock of the corporation evidenced by Domestic Share Certificates or
person voting on behalf of such holder of record (whether or not a Citizen and
whether or not it be an Entity) on the ground that such recordholder of such
person voting on the behalf of such

                                     -25-

<PAGE>
 
recordholder holds or votes such shares (other than shares represented by
Unrestricted Share Certificates) wholly or partly in the interest of any Alien;
such challenge shall be acted on and decided by the Board of Directors in the
same manner as provided in Section 6 of this Article for other challenges, and
the Board may decline to receive the vote of shares so challenged.

          Section 8.  The Board of Directors shall provide separate and distinct
forms of proxy to be distributed in connection with each and every annual or
special meeting of stockholders.  Proxies delivered to the recordholder of the
capital stock of the corporation evidenced by Domestic Share Certificates shall
contain a representation and certification to the effect that such recordholder
or the person or entity voting such capital stock is a Citizen or Entity and
that such shares are not held on behalf of persons who are not Citizens or
Entities and the votes cast thereby are not voted at the direction of any Alien
or representative or any foreign government or representative thereof or any
corporation organized under the laws of a foreign country.

          Section 9.  In the event that a holder of record of the capital stock
of the corporation evidenced by Domestic Share Certificates (a) does not furnish
the corporation with the identity of each person or entity on whose behalf he or
it holds such shares of the capital stock of the corporation and any interest
therein or right thereof or (b) does not furnish the

                                     -26-

<PAGE>
 
corporation with a representation, satisfactory to the Board of Directors of the
corporation, (i) that such recordholder is not an Alien and (ii) that such
recordholder does not hold such shares of the capital stock of the corporation,
any interest therein or right thereof on behalf of any Alien, the Board of
Directors of the corporation may presume conclusively that such shares of the
capital stock of the corporation are held in contravention of the Certificate of
Incorporation and the By-laws of the corporation.

          Section 10.  In the event that the Board of Directors of the
corporation (i) concludes, pursuant to Section 9 of the By-laws that shares of
the capital stock of the corporation evidenced by Domestic Share Certificates
are held in contravention of the Certificate of Incorporation and the By-laws of
the corporation or (ii) otherwise determine that such shares of capital stock of
the corporation are held in contravention of the Certificate of Incorporation
and By-laws of the corporation, the Board of Directors shall so notify the
recordholder of such shares in writing and the Board of Directors shall take the
following actions, which shall be binding upon the recordholder of such shares:

               (a)  The Board of Directors may demand that, within sixty (60)
days of the date of such notice, such recordholder shall sell such shares of the
capital stock of the corporation to a Citizen or Entity, who or which has
provided satisfactory identification and satisfactory representation to

                                     -27-

<PAGE>
 
the Board of Directors of the corporation.  Solely for purposes of this Section
10(a), such transfer shall be effected as if such transferor had been a valid
recordholder of such shares of capital stock of the corporation and the
transferee Citizen or Entity shall be entitled to be listed on the stock ledger
books of the corporation as a recordholder of shares of the capital stock of the
corporation evidenced by Domestic Share Certificates.

               (b)  If, upon the demand of the Board of Directors of the
corporation, the recordholder holding shares of the capital stock of the
corporation evidenced by Domestic Share Certificates in contravention of the
Certificate of Incorporation and the By-Laws of the corporation has not sold
such shares within sixty (60) days of such notice, the Board of Directors shall
have the following options:

                    (i)  The Board of Directors may, but shall not be obligated
to, require the exchange of Domestic Share Certificates for Unrestricted Share
Certificates (on a share-for-share basis) only to the extent that, as a result
of such exchange, the percentage of issued and outstanding capital stock of the
corporation evidenced by Unrestricted Share Certificates does not exceed twenty
percent (20%) of all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of the
corporation. For purposes of computing such percentage, it shall be assumed that
all outstanding options, warrants or rights to receive or require the issuance
of capital stock of the corporation evidenced by

                                     -28-

<PAGE>
 
Unrestricted Share Certificates had been exercised and such shares had been
issued prior to such exchange.

                    (ii)  The Board of Directors may, but shall not be obligated
to, repurchase all of the shares of capital stock of the corporation evidenced
by Domestic Share Certificates from such holder at a price per share equal to
the average (unweighted) closing price for such shares on the New York Stock
Exchange for each of the 45 trading days on which such shares of stock shall
have been traded preceding the day on which notice of repurchase shall be then
deemed to have been given pursuant to this section that some or all of the
Domestic Share Certificates held by Aliens shall be purchased by the
corporation; provided, however, that if such capital stock shall not be traded
on the New York Stock Exchange, then such closing prices shall be those on any
other national security exchange on which the Common Stock is listed, and, if
not listed on any such exchange, the closing prices (or, if closing prices are
not reported, then the average of reported bid and asked quotations) shall be
those reported by any recognized national securities reporting service, and, if
not traded, the repurchase price shall be determined by the Board of Directors
on such basis as it shall deem reasonable.

          In the event the corporation chooses, in its absolute discretion, to
exercise its right to purchase the shares of capital stock represented by
Domestic Share Certificates held by an Alien pursuant to this Section 10 the
corporation shall pay one-fifth of the purchase price determined in accordance
with

                                     -29-

<PAGE>
 
this subsection (b) of this Section 10 in cash on the date on which such shares
of capital stock are to be delivered to the corporation ("Closing Date") and
deliver a promissory note to evidence its obligation to pay one-fifth of the
purchase price together with interest at a rate of six percent per annum (6%) on
the outstanding balance on each of the next four succeeding anniversary dates of
the Closing Date.

                    (iii)  If and to the extent that (A) such recordholder 
fails to comply with the requirements of the Board of Directors pursuant to
subsections (a) and (b) of this Section 7.10 or (B) the Board of Directors
determines, in its absolute discretion, not to exercise its options to exchange
such share certificates or repurchase such shares, any shares of the capital
stock of the corporation evidenced by Domestic Share Certificates which continue
to be held by or on behalf of Aliens shall be deemed void, the corporation shall
not recognize the purported recordholder as a stockholder of the corporation for
any purpose whatsoever and the corporation shall take all necessary and
appropriate action, to the extent permitted by law, to remove such shares of
capital stock from the stock records of the corporation.

          Section 11.  The corporation may, to the full extent permitted by law,
so long as Domestic Share Certificates are held in contravention of the
Certificate of Incorporation and the By-laws of the corporation, exclude from,
or withhold, the payment

                                     -30-

<PAGE>
 
of dividends and/or other distributions of assets in respect of such shares.

          Section 12.  Notwithstanding anything contained in these By-laws to
the contrary, the affirmative vote of at least 80 percent of the Directors valid
in office or at least 80 percent of the outstanding shares of stock of the
corporation entitled to vote generally in the election of Directors, voting
together as a single class, shall be required to alter, amend, or repeal this
Article or to adopt any provision inconsistent herewith.

          Section 13.  The Board of Directors of the corporation is hereby
authorized and directed to make such rules and regulations and to delegate such
power and authority to the Officers of the corporation as are necessary or
appropriate to implement and enforce the intent of this Article and maintain
accurate records of compliance herewith.

          Section 14.  Any share of capital stock of the Corporation evidenced
by Unrestricted Share Certificates shall be automatically converted into and
exchangeable for Domestic Share Certificates when such shares of stock are
transferred to Citizens or Entities.

          Section 15.  Any shares of capital stock of the corporation issued to
Teleglobe USA, Inc. or any of its affiliates shall be Permanently Unrestricted
Share Certificates and no such shares shall at any time (whether or not owned by
Teleglobe USA, Inc. or any of its affiliates) be required to bear

     (e)  that the claim is based on any forecasts or projections as to the

          nature of the claim as soon as is reasonable after it becomes aware of
          the facts, matters or circumstances on which the claim is based (and
          where the claim is recoverable under the Company's insurance the time
          limits imposed by the relevant insurer shall be taken into account in
          determining what is reasonable) and in any event within two years

          from Fujitsu is the total amount of the Fujitsu Purchase Price

     of any of the indemnities in clauses 9, 10 or 12, it may deduct from any
     payments due to the Original Vendors under this Deed the amount it
     reasonably believes necessary to compensate it in relation to the same. The

     (a)  Notwithstanding the other provisions of clause 8 and in particular
          clause 8.10, but subject to sub-clauses (b) through (i) below, the
          Vendors will indemnify the Purchaser and keep it indemnified against
          all damages finally awarded against the Company or other amounts
          ordered to be paid by the Company, or amounts which the Company

          by the Vendors, then the Vendors shall have no liability to the
          Company under clause (a) in excess of the amount of such  settlement.

     (c)  The Purchaser must pay to the Vendors or must procure the payment  by
          the Company to the Vendors of any specific costs recovered by the

          any amounts due and payable by the Vendors to the Purchaser under

          the balance of the Fujitsu Purchase Price owing under clause 6.1(d)
          and shall be deducted from that balance.

     (f)  The  Original Vendors other than Aspect Computing Pty Ltd "Aspect")

          price of any options referred to in clause 7 and shall be deducted
          from that price or those prices.

     (g)  If the Globenet Claim has not been finally resolved prior to any
          final payment to Fujitsu of amounts owing under clause 6.1(d) (the
          "Fujitsu Final Payment"), representatives of the Company and  Fujitsu
          shall meet to assess the likelihood that any amount will be required
          to be paid in respect of the Globenet Claim and what that amount may
          be, taking into account all the facts and circumstances then existing.
          If Fujitsu provides adequate assurances to the Company as to Fujitsu's
          ability to pay any amounts owing under this clause 8.11, the adequacy
          thereof being within the sole discretion of the Company, then the

          payment to the Original Vendors of amounts owing under clause 7.7
          (b)(i) (the "Original Vendors Final Payment"), representatives of the
          Company and the Original Vendors shall meet to assess the likelihood
          that any amount will be required to be paid in respect of the Globenet
          Claim and what that amount may be, taking into account all the facts
          and

                                     -23-

          circumstances then existing.  If the  Original Vendors provide
          adequate assurances to the Company as to the Original Vendors' ability
          to pay any amounts owing under this clause 8.11, the adequacy thereof
          being within the sole discretion of the Company, then the Original
          Vendors Final Payment shall be paid.  In the event the Company does
          not agree that the Original Vendors' assurances are adequate, the
          Company shall have the right to withhold and place in an interest
          bearing escrow account (with interest accruing to the benefit of the
          Original Vendors) up to $1,000,000 from the Original Vendors Final
          Payment until such time as the Globenet Claim is finally resolved.

          of customers of the Company as a result of the Globenet Claim, except

<PAGE>
 
          4.2  Rights, Designations, Preferences and Limitations.
               ------------------------------------------------- 

               a.  Dividends. Holders of Series A Preferred Stock shall be
                   ---------
entitled, as may be determined by the board of directors of the corporation, to
receive dividends out of any funds legally available therefor when and as
declared and in the same amounts as paid on Common Stock on a per share Common
Stock equivalent basis based on the then effective conversion ratio of Series A
Preferred Stock to Common Stock.

               b.  Liquidation.  Upon any liquidation, dissolution or winding 
                   -----------
up of the corporation the holders of outstanding shares of Series A Preferred
Stock will be entitled to be paid out of the assets of the corporation before
any distribution or payment is made upon the Common Stock or any other equity
securities of the corporation ranking junior in liquidation to the Series A
Preferred Stock, and pari passu with any other preference stock of the

entitled to be paid pursuant to the preceding sentence, then the entire assets
to be distributed will be distributed ratably among such holders based upon the
aggregate Liquidation Value of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by
each such holder. The corporation will mail written notice of such liquidation,
dissolution or winding up, not less than 60 days prior to the effective date
thereof to each record holder of Series A Preferred Stock.

Event of Conversion). For purposes of this clause (ii), Available Shares shall

aggregate Alien Percentage Interests of all Non-Assenting Aliens. In the event
that the number of Available Shares (as calculated as of the applicable
Mandatory Event of Conversion) is less than the number of shares of Series A
Preferred Stock held by Non-Assenting Aliens, the board of directors of the
corporation may, in its discretion, waive, for purposes of this clause (ii)
only, the Alien Percentage Limitation with respect to the shares held by the

shares as determined by an independent appraiser selected by the board of
directors and the Non-Assenting Aliens, which fair market value shall include
the value of all accrued but unpaid dividends with respect to such shares.  If
the Board of Directors of the corporation and the Non-Assenting Aliens cannot
agree upon a person to act as independent appraiser within thirty (30) days
after the applicable Mandatory Event of Conversion, the board of directors shall
request Deloitte & Touche to appoint an independent appraiser.  In the event
that the funds of the corporation are insufficient to redeem all the shares of
Series A Preferred Stock of the Non-Assenting Aliens at such time, funds then
available shall be distributed ratably among such Non-Assenting Aliens when and
as they become available, and such redemption right shall continue until such
time as the corporation's funds become available therefor; provided, however,

the six (6) month period either the corporation or the Non-Assenting Aliens
shall be entitled to require a new determination of the fair market value of the
shares of the Series A Preferred Stock.

the corporation written notice of such holder's intent to convert. Such notice
shall set forth the exact number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock which the
holder owns, the number of shares of Series Preferred Stock the holder desires
to convert and the present citizenship of the holder. Upon receipt of such
notice, the corporation shall, in turn, send notice to al the record owners of
Series A Preferred Stock (the "Conversion Notice") which Conversion Notice shall
state (a) that the corporation has received notice of a stockholder's intent to
convert and (b) the number of Available Shares which the corporation anticipates
will be available for conversion. For a period of 30 days from the date of the
Conversion Notice (the "30-Day Period"), the corporation shall not convert any
shares of Series A Preferred Stock pursuant to this Section 4.2e(4).

                         (ii) Any other Alien holder of Series A Preferred Stock

30-Day Period, the corporation shall provide notice to all Alien Converting
Stockholders who or which deliver notices to convert under clauses (i) or (ii)
of this Section 4.2e(4) during the applicable 30-Day Period of how many shares
each such Alien Converting Stockholder is entitled to convert. Within ten (10)
days after the Alien Converting Stockholder's receipt of such notice, the Alien
Converting Stockholder must deliver to the office of any transfer agent of the
corporation for the Series A Preferred Stock, or to such other place as may be
designated by the corporation, the certificate or certificates for the shares to
be converted, duly endorsed or assigned in blank or to the corporation (if
required by it) and a written notice stating the name or names (with address) in
which the certificate or certificates for the shares of Common Stock are to be
issued.

                    (5) Conversion shall be deemed to have been effected (i)
with respect to conversion effected pursuant to clause (3) or (4) above, on the
date when the delivery of certificates is made and (ii) with respect to
conversion effected pursuant to clause (2) above, on the date of occurrence of
the Mandatory Event of Conversion.

                    (6) As promptly as practicable after conversion, the
corporation shall issue and deliver to or upon the written order of the holder,
to the place designated by such holder, a certificate or certificates for the
number of full shares of Common Stock to which such holder is entitled. The
person in whose names the certificate or certificates for Common Stock are to be
issued shall be deemed to have become a stockholder of record on the applicable
Conversion Date unless the transfer books of the corporation are closed on that
date, in which event he shall be deemed to have become a stockholder of record
on the next succeeding date on which the transfer books are open. Upon
conversion of only a portion of the number of shares covered by a certificate
representing shares of Series A Preferred Stock, surrendered for conversion, the
corporation shall issue and deliver to or upon the written order of the holder
of the certificate so surrendered for conversion, at the expense of the
corporation, a new certificate covering the number of shares of Series A
Preferred Stock, representing the unconverted portion of the certificate so
surrendered.

                    (7) With respect to any conversion of Series A Preferred
Stock pursuant to Section 4.2e(1) hereof, the calculation of the Alien
Percentage Limitation shall be made by disregarding the Common Stock issuable
upon conversion of other convertible securities issued by the corporation and
outstanding at the time of the calculation.

GENERAL DISCLOSURES
These disclosures potentially apply to more than one warranty and are disclosed
on a general basis.  Failure by a disclosure for a specific warranty to cross-
refer to these General Disclosures does not prevent the disclosure in the
General Disclosures from operating as a disclosure in respect of a specific
warranty.

1.   Telstra - Dealership
     (a)  In about December 1995, Telstra informed the Company that it was
          prepared to deal with an associated company of the Company in a
          dealership arrangement.  On 8 January 1996, Auscorp was acquired by

                                     -67-

<PAGE>
 
          shareholders Peter Slaney, Campbell Burns and Ravi Bhatia and was
          appointed as a dealer by Telstra.  The Company and Auscorp have
          entered into the Auscorp Management Agreement.
     (b)  On 8 January 1996, Auscorp and Telstra entered into the Telstra
          Solution Plus Dealer Agreement Fixed Network ("Dealer Agreement")
     (c)  The Dealer Agreement requires that a dealer cannot be connected with a
          service provider after 31 July 1996 ("Resale Supply Cutoff Date").
     (d)  As part of the dealership activities, Auscorp has procured that some
          of the Company's customers have been transferred to Telstra and that
          further customers of the Company will be transferred to Telstra.
          Auscorp will continue in the future to seek to procure further
          transfers.  In consideration of procuring these transfers, Auscorp has
          received and will receive consideration from Telstra comprising a flat
          rate commission fee and a percentage commission for each transfer.
     (e)  Outside the normal course of business, discussions are taking place
          with agents, associations and third party service providers with whom
          the Company currently conducts business regarding those parties
          conducting business with Auscorp.
     (f)  Fees were paid to the Company by Auscorp in anticipation of execution
          of the Auscorp Management Agreement.
     (g)  Auscorp can potentially trade under any tariff except SP 1 and perhaps
          other wholesale products.
     In addition to this disclosure, the Company's relationship with Auscorp and
     Auscorp's obligations to Telstra have been fully discussed with the
     Purchaser to the Purchaser's satisfaction and the Auscorp Management
     Agreement was executed after its terms were fully discussed with the
     Purchaser.

2.  Telstra - Tariff Changes
     (a)  Telstra has advised of proposed tariff changes to take place early in
          1996, which are currently being reviewed, and opposed by some industry
          groups.
     (b)  Telstra has agreed to pay compensation to the Company for 2 months on
          loss of MSP 1 tariff based on January 1 996 revenue, payable in
          February and March.

3.   Bad & Doubtful Debts
     (a)  Telstra
     The Company is the customer of Telstra and is liable pursuant to the BCS
     Tariffs for debts of the Company's customers to Telstra.  Neither the
     Company nor Telstra has any system to recognize and quantify this
     contingent liability until it becomes actual.  As a matter of practice,
     Telstra rarely calls upon the Company (or other service providers) to pay
     this liability.  The Balance Sheet accordingly contains no provision for
     this unknown item.  The Company has not expensed any bad debt provision to
     date in the profit & loss account of the Company.

                                     -68-

<PAGE>
 
     Since January, the Company has been discussing debt management issues with
     Telstra, for the purpose of obtaining timely information (i.e., daily) to
     enable effective debt management.  As of signing this Agreement, Telstra is
     unable to provide debtor information on a timely basis.  Telstra has
     requested the Company to agree to a proposal of payment of an advance of
     funds to Telstra by the Company on behalf of the Company's clients, to
     lessen the financial exposure of Telstra to the Company's customers.
     Telstra has not quantified its request and the Company has rejected that
     request.  Telstra and the Company are working on a joint debtor management
     plan on late payers and are continuing discussions on the issue of late
     payments.

     (b)  General
     The Company assumes a doubtful debt provision rate of 0.25% of overall
     billings to cover any bad debts which may be incurred.  This policy was
     determined as appropriate at a Board meeting on 24/8/95 and is currently
     scheduled to be reviewed on a regular basis.  The doubtful debt provision
     in the Balance Sheet includes actual doubtful debts of $148,000 identified
     by Telstra.  The Vendors shall be liable for warranty claims in respect of
     any excess over this provision on claims by Telstra in respect of the
     Company's customers.  The Company shall not be liable for any actual bad
     debts of other customers of the Company in excess of the doubtful debt
     provision of 0.25% on the basis that the provision is fair & reasonable and
     that there has not been a charge to the provision to date.

4.   Globenet Pty Ltd ('Globenet')/AAP Telecommunications Pty Ltd ('AAPT")
     The Company was informed by Globenet in late December 1995 that AAPT (a
     competitor of the Company) had acquired all the share capital of Globenet
     so that Globenet had become a fully owned subsidiary of AAPT.  Letters
     dated 30/l/96 from Clayton Utz have alleged breach of agreement and given
     notice of termination.  Inter alia, the Company denies the existence of the
     alleged agreement and, if the agreement exists, denies breaching it.  The
     Company, AAPT and Globenet representatives have held meetings and are
     continuing discussions to attempt to settle upon the basis of an ongoing
     relationship and to avoid litigation.

     The Company's relationship with Globenet is unstable and the future course
     of the relationship is uncertain.  The Vendors do not make any
     representation that:
     -  the Company's relationship with Globenet will continue,
     -  Globenet will not purport to terminate the alleged agreement, there will
          not be a loss of customers introduced to the Company by Globenet, or
          Globenet will introduce further customers to the Company, litigation
          will not occur between the Company and Globenet and/or AAPT or that if
          it does occur, that it can be successfully defended.

                                     -69-

<PAGE>
 
     The above disclosure is made for the purpose of clarification only.  The
     Company, the Vendors and the Purchaser acknowledge that in relationship to
     the Globenet Claim, their respective positions are fully dealt with by
     Clause 8.11 of this Deed and the Purchaser acknowledges that it has no
     claim for breach of or any of the warranties in relation to the Globenet
     Claim.

5.   Related Party Transactions
     (a)  Slaney Software Pty Ltd (of which Darren Slaney is principal) has from
          time to time provided consulting services for the development of
          billing systems.  No present arrangement exists for the provision of
          these services.
     (b)  Services Agreement between the Company and CT Corporation Pty. Ltd.
          dated 24 November 1995
     (c)  Services Agreement between the Company and Alta Telecommunications
          Pty. Ltd. dated 1 June 1995
     (d)  Loan Agreement with Fujitsu Australia United dated 22 December 1994
     (e)  Management Agreement with Ultrasys dated 22 December 1994
     (f)  Supply of products and services by Fujitsu and its subsidiaries from
          time to time in the ordinary course of business

     NB.  Contracts in points (b) to (e) are to be terminated at or prior to
     Completion so warranty does not apply to them as at Completion.

6.   The Balance Sheet is prepared upon the basis of assumptions and best
     estimates as to revenue and operating costs available at the last date of
     review, 9 February 1996.  Revenue information is not received from Telstra
     until approx.  6 weeks after the end of each month and had not been
     received at the date of preparation of the Balance Sheet.  The assumptions
     made in making these estimates have been applied consistently with previous
     management accounts of the Company.  The Balance Sheet discloses a true and
     fair view of the state of affairs and the financial position of the Company
     to the extent possible having regard to this limitation.

     The financial statements of the Company as at 31 March 1995 contained in
     the Disclosure Book are made out fully in accordance with applicable
     Australian Accounting Standards, the Corporations Law and Corporations
     Regulations so they contain disclosures and other financial information
     (such as total lease expenditure contracted for at balance date but not
     provided for in the accounts) that have not been included in the Balance
     Sheet.  The Balance Sheet consists of only information that has been

           the Mortgagor in respect of any Rights.

Notes to and forming part of the accounts for the nine months ended 31 December 
1995

1.      Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

The principal accounting policies adopted in preparing the accounts of the 
company Axicorp Pty Ltd are stated to assist in a general understanding of these
accounts.

The accounts and consolidated accounts have been prepared in accordance with the
requirements in Schedule 5 of the Corporations Regulations, and the Accounting 
Standards of the Australian Society of Certified Practicing Accountants and the 
Institute of Chartered Accountants of Australia.

(a)     Basis of accounting

The accounts have been prepared on the basis of historical costs and except 
where stated, do not take into account current valuations of non-current assets.
Cost is based on the fair values of the consideration given in exchange for 
assets.

Non-current assets are revalued from time to time as considered appropriate by 
the directors and are not stated at amounts in excess of their recoverable 
amounts.  Except where stated recoverable amounts are not determined using 
discounted cash flows.

(b)     Investments

Investments have been brought to accounts as follows:

Interest in companies - the Company's interests in companies which are not 
controlled are brought to account at cost and dividends are recognized in the 
profit and loss account when received.

(c)     Depreciation and amortization of property, plant and equipment

Property, plant and equipment, other than freehold land, are depreciated over 
their estimated useful lives using the straight line method.  Profits and losses
on disposal of property, plant and equipment are taken into account in 
determining the profit for the year.

(d)     Receivables

A provision is raised for any doubtful debts based on a review of all 
outstanding amounts at year end.  Bad debts are written off during the period in
which they are identified.

(e)     Employee entitlements

Liabilities for employees' entitlements to wages and salaries, annual leave, 
sick leave and other current employee entitlements are accrued at nominal 
amounts calculated on the basis of current wage and salary rates.  Liabilities 
for other employee entitlements, which are not expected to be paid or settled 
within 12 months of balance date, are accrued in respect of all employees at the
present values of future amounts expected to be paid.

Contributions to employee superannuation plans are charged as an expense as the 
contributions are paid on become payable.  Any deficiency in the net assets of 
the superannuation plan is recognized as a provision when it arises.

(f)     Income tax

Income tax has been brought to account using the liability method of tax effect 
accounting.

<PAGE>
 
(g)      Operating Revenue

Sales revenue represents revenue earned from the sale of the Company's products 
and services. Other revenue includes fees earned from associations.
