On September 9, 2009, FiberNet Telecom Group, Inc. (the Company) announced that it had been acquired by Zayo Group, LLC (Zayo Group) pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of May 28, 2009, among the Company, Zayo Group and Zayo Merger Sub, Inc. (Merger Sub) (the Merger Agreement). Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub merged with and into the Company (the Merger), with the Company continuing as the surviving corporation and becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Zayo Group. On September 9, 2009, the Company issued a press release announcing completion of the Merger, notification of the NASDAQ Stock Market (NASDAQ) with respect to delisting, and its intent to file a Form 15 with the Securities and Exchange Commission to suspend the Companys duty under Section 15(d) to file reports required by Section 13(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2 and incorporated herein by reference.
In connection with the completion of the Merger, the Company notified NASDAQ that each share of common stock of the Company, par value $0.001 per share (the Common Stock) (other than Excluded Shares (as defined in the Merger Agreement)), outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger would be converted into the right to receive $11.45 in cash, without interest and net of any applicable withholding taxes, and requested that NASDAQ file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) an application on Form 25 to delist and deregister the Common Stock. NASDAQ filed the Form 25 with the SEC on September 9, 2009, and trading of the Common Stock on NASDAQ was to be suspended effective as of the close of business on September 9, 2009.
Upon the effective time of the Merger, holders of Common Stock immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger ceased to have any rights as stockholders in the Company (other than their right to receive the merger consideration, or, in the case of Dissenting Shares (as defined in the Merger Agreement), the rights pursuant to Section 262 of the Delaware General Corporation Law) and, accordingly, such holders no longer have any interest in the Companys future earnings or growth.
On September 9, 2009, the Merger was completed. As a result of the Merger, the Company became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Zayo Group. In the Merger, each share of Common Stock that was outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger (other than the Excluded Shares (as defined in the Merger Agreement)) was converted into the right to receive $11.45 in cash, without interest and net of any applicable withholding taxes. The aggregate consideration paid by Zayo Group in connection with the Merger was approximately $90.7 million plus related transaction fees and expenses. Zayo Group used capital contributions from its members to fund the acquisition and the payment of the merger consideration.
The foregoing description of the terms set forth in the Merger Agreement and any other descriptions thereof that are contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement. A copy of the Merger Agreement is attached as Exhibit 2.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K that was filed by the Company with the SEC on May 29, 2009.

In connection with the completion of the Merger and in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement, the Companys certificate of incorporation and bylaws were restated, effective September 9, 2009, so that they read the same (except with respect to the name of the Company) as the certificate of incorporation filed as an exhibit to the merger certificate filed with the Delaware Secretary of States office on September 9, 2009, and the bylaws of Merger Sub in effect immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger. Copies of the restated certificate of incorporation and bylaws are attached hereto as Exhibits 3.1 and 3.2 and are incorporated herein by reference.
At a special meeting of the stockholders of the Company held on September 9, 2009, the requisite number of stockholders of the Company adopted the Merger Agreement.
