We are subject to

We are subject to significant restrictive debt covenants, which limit our operating flexibility. The Senior Credit Facilities and the indentures for the Notes and the Existing Notes contain (or will contain) covenants that significantly restrict our ability to, among other things: • incur additional indebtedness; • pay dividends or make other distributions; • make certain other restricted payments and investments; • create liens; • issue shares of subsidiaries; • impose restrictions on the ability of our subsidiaries to pay dividends or make other payments to us; • repurchase shares; • transfer or sell assets; • merge or consolidate with other entities; • enter into transactions with affiliates; • impair the Security; and • engage in certain types of business. These covenants could limit our ability to finance our future operations and capital needs and our ability to pursue acquisitions and other business activities that may be in our interest. The Senior Credit Facilities also require us to maintain specified financial ratios and satisfy specified financial tests. Our ability to meet these financial ratios and tests may be affected by events beyond our control and, as a result, we cannot assure you that we will be able to meet these ratios and tests. In the event of a default under the Senior Credit Facilities or certain other defaults under other agreements, the lenders could terminate their commitments under the Senior Credit Facilities and declare all amounts owed to them to be due and payable. Borrowings under other debt instruments that contain cross-default or cross-acceleration provisions, including the Notes, may, as a result, also be accelerated and become due and payable. We may be unable to pay these debts in such circumstances. Under German insolvency law we may have to file for insolvency when we are over indebted, even if we are still able to meet all payment obligations. Under German law, a reason for the commencement of insolvency proceedings (Insolvenzgrund) would not only exist in case of illiquidity (Zahlungsunfähigkeit) or imminent illiquidity (drohende Zahlungsunfähigkeit) of the Issuer, but also in case of its over indebtedness (Überschuldung). Over indebtedness is based solely on a balance sheet test (measured by fair market or liquidation values rather than by book values) and exists when the debtor’s assets no longer cover existing liabilities. Hence, over indebtedness may occur if the debtor has still enough liquidity to meet its current obligations. Once the over indebtedness has occurred, the management is under an obligation to file for insolvency within three weeks unless the over indebtedness is remedied by equity contributions or subordination of liability. Delayed filing for insolvency is a criminal offense for the management. Unforeseen adverse events resulting in losses or write-offs or requiring reserves may trigger over indebtedness and commencement of insolvency proceedings of any of the Issuer or the Subsidiary Guarantors if their respective net equity at that time is not sufficient to offset such losses, write-offs or reserves. See “—We depend on payments from our subsidiaries to make payments on the Notes, and our subsidiaries will be subject to various restrictions on making such payments.” If iesy Hessen becomes insolvent, New iesy and the Issuer, as limited partners, would be subordinated to all other creditors of iesy Hessen. 54

We depend on payments from our subsidiaries to make payments on the Notes, and our subsidiaries will be subject to various restrictions on making such payments. The Issuer’s main activity is the holding of equity interests in New iesy, which in turn holds equity interests in iesy Hessen. iesy Hessen holds the equity interests of Kabelnetz, which itself is a holding company for the ish entities. The Issuer holds no material assets and has no sources of revenue other than the equity interests in its subsidiaries, the right to any dividends thereon and the Proceeds Loans. The Issuer and New iesy also are required to pay salaries and other amounts due to certain members of iesy’s management and certain other expenses, including management and advisory fees. In addition, New iesy, iesy Hessen and the ish entities are subject to corporate law restrictions on their ability to pay dividends. In particular, under sections 30 and 31 of the German Limited Liability Companies Act (Gesetz über die Gesellschaften mit beschränkter Haftung) (with respect to German limited liability companies) and sections 172 and 172a of the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch), in conjunction with sections 30 and 31 of the German Limited Liability Companies Act (with respect to German limited partnerships whose general partner is a limited liability company), such entities must not make an upstream payment to any of their direct or indirect shareholders to the extent that such payment would result in the net equity of the limited liability company making the payment or, in the case of iesy Hessen, the net equity of its general partner (iesy GP) becoming negative. A limited liability company’s net equity is calculated upon the book value of its assets (excluding, however, any loan repayment claims relating to upstream or cross-stream intercompany loans granted by that company) minus its liabilities (including any provisions (Rückstellungen) such as, for example, any provisions made or to be made by iesy GP in respect of its liability as a general partner to the creditors of iesy Hessen) minus the company’s stated capital. Management would be personally liable vis-à-vis the relevant company to repay to it any amounts paid to the company’s shareholders resulting in the company’s net equity becoming negative. The German capital maintenance rules described above continue to be subject to evolving court decision practice. In particular, German courts have recently held that shareholders of a German limited liability company (such as New iesy), in addition to being bound by the restrictions set forth in sections 30 and 31 of the German Limited Liability Companies Act, must not deprive the company of the assets required by it to meet its own payment obligations. This court ruling could be extended to limited partnerships such as iesy Hessen as well. As of March 31, 2005, iesy Hessen had net equity of €244.5 million and New iesy had net equity of €112.7 million and ish had net equity of €174.6 million. iesy Hessen’s net equity may be decreased by dividends and distributions from iesy Hessen and by losses at iesy Hessen. As iesy Hessen’s general partner, iesy GP’s net equity would be affected by provisions (Rückstellungen) required due to its potential liability for iesy Hessen’s debt if iesy Hessen were to become unable to meet its obligations, e.g., due to losses or excessive prior distributions to shareholders. New iesy’s net equity may be decreased by dividends and distributions and by losses, in particular by book losses in connection with any write-down of the value with which New iesy carries its interest in iesy Hessen on its books. ish’s net equity may be affected by a reorganization of the ish entities and may be decreased by any dividends, distributions and losses. Moreover, if the Issuer enters into a profit and loss pooling agreement with New iesy (see “—Risks Relating to Our Business—We may be unable to deduct interest on the Notes for tax purposes”), the Issuer will be obliged to effectively compensate New iesy for any annual losses (including any losses caused by the write-down of assets on the balance sheet of New iesy) which it may incur during the term of the profit and loss pooling agreement. Such obligation to compensate may therefore further reduce distributable profits available at New iesy and may lead to a reduction of any intercompany claims which the Issuer may have against New iesy. The Issuer may become insolvent if it must effectively compensate New iesy for annual losses in the absence of any further distributable reserves at, and intercompany claims against, New iesy. While we do not believe that iesy Hessen or New iesy will have negative net equity, we expect the net equity position of both entities to decrease over the next several years. In addition, any losses in the future may further reduce the net equity position of iesy Hessen or New iesy and may result in negative net equity of one or both of iesy Hessen or New iesy. There can be no assurance that the dividend and distribution capacity of New iesy, iesy Hessen and the ish entities will be adequate to service scheduled payments of interest and principal on the Notes, particularly as iesy and ish have histories of losses. In addition, the terms of the Notes permit further debt to be incurred by the Issuer, and New iesy, iesy Hessen and the ish entities will also be required to service this debt by means of dividends or other distributions which are subject to the same restrictions. If payments are not made by our subsidiaries to the Issuer, for whatever reason, it may not have any other sources of funds available to it that would permit it to make payments on the Notes or satisfy other payment obligations, including with respect to any tax liabilities. In such event, holders of the Notes would have to rely upon claims for payment under the Subsidiary Guarantees, which are subject to the risks and limitations described below under “—Risks Relating to the Notes, the Subsidiary Guarantees and the Security.” 55
