*On July 1, 2009 (the Effective Date), the Joint Plan of Reorganization of Primus Telecommunications Group, Incorporated and its Affiliate Debtors, dated June 12, 2009, as confirmed by an order of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware entered on June 12, 2009 (the Plan), became effective. Pursuant to the Plan, on the Effective Date: (1) the common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of Primus Telecommunications Group, Incorporated (Group) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Date (the Old Common Stock) was cancelled and the holders of the Old Common Stock received their pro rata share of Contingent Value Rights; (2) the certificate of incorporation of Group was amended and restated in its entirety; and (3) the common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of Group (the New Common Stock) was issued for distribution in accordance with the Plan. As a result of the amendment and restatement of the Companys certificate of incorporation, the rights of holders of the New Common Stock will be substantially different than the rights of holders of the Old Common Stock and, consequently, the New Common Stock may be deemed to be a different class of securities than the Old Common Stock. Accordingly, the Company has filed a Form 8-A to register the New Common Stock under Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the Exchange Act) and is filing this Form 15 to terminate the registration of the Old Common Stock under Section 12(g) of the Exchange Act and suspend its duty to file reports under Section 13 and 15(d) of the Exchange Act in connection with the Old Common Stock.
