total of approximately

total of approximately 217,000 homes in Frankfurt and Marburg. See “—Recent Developments” and “Risk Factors—Risks Relating to Our Business—If we fail to introduce new or enhanced products and services successfully, our revenues and margins could be lower than expected.” Other Revenues Other revenues primarily consists of own work capitalized, premium cable television program carriage fees and prior period income, such as the release of accruals and allowances. iesy has historically recognized a fairly significant amount of other revenues. We believe this item will decline over time. For the three months ended March 31, 2005, other revenues were €1.2 million (3.7%) of iesy’s total revenues, and €6.7 million (4.9%) of its total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2004. Own Work Capitalized Own work capitalized reflects that portion of personnel costs which is directly attributable to the planning and construction of projects related to the extension of iesy’s network. Under German GAAP, these costs are also reflected in iesy’s revenues to the extent capitalized. If and to the extent iesy’s expansion activities (and hence capitalized costs) increase, the contribution from own work capitalized to revenues will also increase. Own work capitalized were €0.5 million, or 1.5% of iesy’s total revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2005, and €1.3 million, or 1.0% of its total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2004. Other Operating Income Other operating income primarily consists of prior period income such as releases of accruals and allowances, as well as premium cable television carriage fees. It includes premium cable television program carriage fees, which relate primarily to fees paid by Premiere to iesy via MSG. The fees derived by iesy from this arrangement include a fixed carriage fee component for each premium cable television channel made available to Premiere, plus a variable fee based upon Premiere’s revenues generated from its subscribers served by iesy’s network. This calculation is performed by MSG on a national basis and revenues are then allocated to each of the Level 3 operators based upon the number of their digitally reachable subscribers. iesy does not receive carriage fees from broadcasters for its foreign and English language program packages but instead pays programming fees for access to such content to either Mediapool Content Services GmbH (“Mediapool”), a program provider who acquires content on iesy’s behalf, or to the broadcasters from whom iesy acquires content directly. Premium cable television program carriage fees generated €0.5 million, or 1.5% of iesy’s total revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2005, and €1.9 million, or 1.4% of iesy’s total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2004. See “— Other operating expenses—Costs relating to premium cable television programming” and “Risk Factors—Risks Relating to Our Business—We do not have guaranteed access to programs and are dependent on agreements with third parties for our content and carriage fees, which may adversely affect our business.” Other operating income for the three months ended March 31, 2005 was €0.8 million, or 2.4% of iesy’s total revenues, and for the year ended December 31, 2004 was €5.4 million, or 4.0%, of iesy’s total revenues. Cost of Materials and Services Cost of materials consists of cost of raw materials and consumables, and cost of purchased services. The former is comprised mainly of repairs and maintenance costs, and the latter of network infrastructure services costs, which include costs under SLAs and the BRN-iesy agreement with DTAG and other agreements, and customer care, billing and network systems. Repair and maintenance costs will be affected by the development of new products and services and, dependent upon the success of the rollout, may increase. iesy’s most significant costs include payments under SLAs and the BRN-iesy agreement with DTAG for the use of assets which are shared between iesy’s network and that of DTAG, and which are owned by DTAG, and for services provided by DTAG. These assets include underground ducts used to house DTAG’s telephony network and iesy’s cable television network; facilities which house DTAG’s telephony switches and iesy’s cable television headends; tower space used to house iesy’s transmission devices; rental space housing iesy’s microwave equipment used to transmit cable television signals; electricity supplied to shared facilities; and fiber optic systems used to transmit iesy’s cable television signals. For a description of the SLAs, see “Business—Business of iesy—Supply—SLAs with DTAG.” If DTAG terminates any of these SLAs or the BRN-iesy agreement, iesy would be required to obtain replacement facilities, which could be difficult and could be more expensive. See “Risk Factors—Risks Relating to Our Business—We rely on DTAG and certain of its affiliates for a significant part of our network. Any disruption or termination of our arrangements with DTAG would materially and adversely affect our business and results of operations.” For accounting purposes, iesy treats the SLAs as operating leases and hence expense payments made under the SLAs. See “Risk Factors— 82

Risks Relating to Our Indebtedness and Our Structure—Our high leverage and debt service obligations could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition or results of operations” and “—Risks Relating to the Notes, the Subsidiary Guarantees and the Security—We have not included IFRS or U.S. GAAP financial information in this Prospectus, and there may be certain significant differences between our financial position and results of operations under German GAAP, IFRS or U.S. GAAP.” Services and facilities provided under the SLAs are governed by their respective Term Sheets. iesy has favorably renegotiated the Term Sheets in 2002, and has terminated certain services under the Term Sheets where they were no longer required. During 2005, iesy will replace AMTV radio links with leased fiber solutions to establish a more integrated network capable of distributing television signals from a single, central feed-in point, without any significant capital investment or increase in operating expenditures. This will allow iesy to more cost-effectively deliver premium cable television services in the future. iesy leases antenna space for its AMTV equipment from DTAG, and these leases will, in most cases, terminate as of December 31, 2005. Under the BRN-iesy agreement, DTAG installs, makes available and operates a fixed-line broadband and broadcasting distribution network in the 630 MHz spectrum. This network, which is made up of optical leased lines, will replace the AMTV technology as well as the Diamant system. See “Business—Business of iesy—Supply—SLAs with DTAG.” Personnel Expenses Personnel expenses include salaries and wages, and social security, pension, and other benefits of the permanent staff. It also includes other forms of compensation such as overtime and stand-by pay, and does not include temporary staff expenses, which are included as other operating expenses. Personnel expenses were €5.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2005, and €22.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2004. Many of the terms and conditions to the collective bargaining agreements with the labor union representing many of iesy’s employees are now more than two years out of date; accordingly, iesy recently gave notice to terminate its main collective bargaining agreements providing for a requirement of six months’ notice in order to renegotiate these terms and increase the flexibility ahead of the roll-out of iesy’s new products and services during 2005. See “Risk Factors—Risks Relating to Our Business—Strikes or other industrial actions as well as the negotiation of a new collective bargaining agreement could disrupt our operations or make it more costly to operate our facilities” and “Business—Business of iesy— Employees.” Depreciation and Amortization iesy records depreciation expenses relating to property, plant and equipment and intangible assets. A substantial proportion of iesy’s depreciation and amortization expenses related to the amortization of its customer base due to the step-up resulting from the application of purchase accounting in connection with the original acquisition from DTAG in 2000. See “—The iesy Acquisition.” In addition, iesy has significant depreciation expenses relating to capital expenditures made prior to the original acquisition in 2000. Furthermore, in our consolidated accounts, we have recognized an increased amortization of goodwill in the fourth quarter of 2004 as a result of the contribution of interests of New iesy to the Issuer by the minority shareholders of New iesy. The minority shareholders of New iesy, representing an equity interest of approximately 18%, contributed their interests in New iesy to iesy Repository in exchange for new shares issued by iesy Repository, which resulted in a recognition of goodwill for the year ended December 31, 2004. This goodwill has been accounted for in accordance with existing accounting policies, and thereby will result in increased depreciation and amortization expenses in future years. In the near future, we anticipate an increase in iesy’s capital expenditures and, as a result, iesy’s depreciation expense will increase accordingly. See “—Capital Expenditures.” iesy also expects a significant increase in its depreciation and amortization expenses related to the amortization of goodwill recognized in connection with the ish Acquisition. See “Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements of iesy.” Other Operating Expenses Other operating expenses include copyright license fees, costs relating to premium cable television services, rental and leasing fees, sales and marketing expenses, legal, consulting, and management fees, and miscellaneous other operating expenses. Copyright License Fees iesy is required under German law to pay royalties to the holders of copyrights and related rights for the retransmission of radio and television programs that include, among other things, literary, scientific or artistic works protected by copyright law. iesy pays these fees pursuant to a collective agreement (Kabelglobalvertrag) between members of the cable 83
