The restructuring was accomplished through a merger under Section 251(g) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, pursuant to which all stockholders of Cogent Communications Group, Inc. at the effective time of the merger became stockholders of the new holding company, Cogent Communications Holdings, Inc. ("Holdings"), and Cogent Communications Group, Inc. became a subsidiary of Holdings.  The business operations of Cogent Communications Group, Inc. have not changed as a result of the restructuring.

Cogent Communications Group, Inc.'s stockholders were not required to take any action in connection with the corporate restructuring.  All outstanding shares were converted into shares of Holdings in a non-taxable transaction with the same rights, privileges and interests as the shares of Cogent Communications Group, Inc. previously held by such stockholders.  The shares of Holdings will continue to be represented by the same stock certificates that previously represented shares of Cogent Communications Group, Inc. capital stock.
