NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

1. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of North American DataCom, Inc. (the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions for Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements.

In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for the fair presentation of the Company’s financial position as of September 30, 2001 and its results of operations and cash flows for the three-month periods ended September 30, 2001 and 2000. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements as of June 30, 2001 including the notes thereto

Nature of Business

The Company intends to provide communications and information technology services with an emphasis on broadband fiber optic and wireless telecommunications services that support enterprise data storage solutions, primarily for customers in southern United States.

Principles of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All material intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements. Estimates also affect the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Certain estimates used by management are particularly susceptible to significant changes in the economic environment. These include estimates of the realization of investments, long-lived assets and deferred tax assets. Each of these estimates, as well as the related amounts reported in the financial statements, are sensitive to near term changes in the factors used to determine them. A significant change in any one of those factors could result in the determination of amounts different from those reported in the consolidated financial statements and the effect of such difference could be material.

Investments

Investments are classified as available-for-sale and are reported at fair value, with unrealized gains and losses, net of taxes, reported as a separate component of stockholders’ equity.

Realized gains and losses, and declines in value judged to be other then temporary, are included in other income. The cost of securities sold is based on the specific identification method and interest earned is included in other income.

Revenue Recognition

Revenue is recognized when services are rendered.

Taxes on Income

Income taxes are calculated using the liability method specified by Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 109, Accounting for Income Taxes (“SFAS 109”). Under SFAS 109, the Company provides for estimated income taxes payable or refundable on current year income tax returns as well as the estimated future tax effects attributable to temporary differences and carry forwards. Measurement of deferred income taxes is based upon enacted tax laws and tax rates, with the measurement of deferred income tax assets reduced by estimated amounts of tax benefits not likely to be realized.

Loss per Share

Basic and diluted loss per common share have been computed based upon the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the three-month periods ending September 30, 2001 and 2000. Common stock equivalents consisting of stock options, convertible notes, convertible preferred stock and warrants were not considered in either period, as their effect would be anti-dilutive. The maximum number of shares assuming full conversion from the Company’s per share computations is as follows:

September 30, 2001

September 30, 2000

Stock Options 13,751,916 14,611,178
Convertible Notes 47,208 -
Convertible Preferred Stock 5,453,851 400,000
19,252,975 15,011,178

Property, Plant and Equipment

Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost. Major renewals and improvements are capitalized, while maintenance and repairs are expensed when incurred. Depreciation is computed over the estimated useful lives of depreciable assets using the straight-line method. Useful lives for property and equipment are as follows:

Years

Conduit and optic fiber

25

Communications equipment and wireless towers

3-10

Computers

5

Other Equipment

3-10

Leasehold improvements

Term of lease

Software

3

The carrying values of long-lived assets are periodically reviewed by the Company and impairments would be recognized if the expected future operating non-discounted cash flows derived from an asset were less than its carrying value.

Licenses

Licenses relate to the Company’s FCC License to provide personal communications and paging services. Generally, amortization begins with the commencement of service to customers and is computed using the straight-line method over an estimated useful life of 15 years.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The carrying amounts of the Company's financial instruments, consisting of cash and cash equivalents, notes and accounts receivable, accounts payable and payable to director approximate their respective fair values.

Business Lines

Fiber Optic and Broadband Wireless Network: The Company is building a fiber optic and broadband wireless communications network, which will allow for the high-speed transmission of large amounts of data. It is expected that businesses, government agencies and institutions will use the Company’s network as a preferred alternative to existing telephone and satellite data transmission systems. The Company installed a wireless network connecting Iuka, MS to Atlanta, GA and Memphis, TN during fiscal 2001. This wireless network currently operates at a DS-3 bandwidth level.

The Company plans to assist corporations, government agencies and institutions in the design and installation of their own internal telecommunications networks. The Company plans to use state-of-the-art technology, which will enable its clients to transfer and receive large amounts of data at high speed between both internal and external sources.

In March 2000, the Company entered into an agreement with Qwest Communications in which the Company purchased 504 miles of conduit installed along the CSX railroad track from New Orleans, Louisiana to Mobile, Alabama, and from Pensacola, Florida to Jacksonville, Florida. Fiber optic cable has not yet been installed within such conduit purchased from Qwest Communications. The agreement with Qwest calls for payments of approximately $15 million over the course of the agreement, all which is currently past due by the Company. Qwest has declared a default, but has not initiated arbitration or other proceedings to recover the conduit.

In August 2000, the Company entered into an agreement with a third-party contractor to lay fiber conduit between Atlanta, Georgia and Chattanooga, Tennessee and from Chattanooga to Memphis, Tennessee. The contractor did not complete the conduit installation. The Company has not made any payments under this agreement. This agreement was terminated due to changes in the schedule of installations. The Company plans to amend certain terms of the agreement based upon new schedules. The Company has installed 24 miles of conduit, of which approximately 8 miles was sold to Bell South in fiscal 2001, providing access to the Company’s enterprise data center in Iuka, Mississippi.

While the Company is building its fiber network, the Company has installed a communications tower to provide wireless connectivity, initially at 500 MBPS, from the Company’s facility in Iuka, Mississippi into the nationwide Internet and telecommunications system through Atlanta and Memphis. This provides the Company with an interim capability to test market its enterprise data storage services, web-hosting services, and competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) and interstate exchange carrier (IXC) telephone services to select markets.

Internet Access: As of September 30, 2001, the Company provides Internet access services to 1,455 customers in Mississippi, Tennessee and Alabama. Internet services provided by the Company include basic dial-up access to the Internet through standard computer modems, high speed Internet access, and the design and hosting of websites for customers. As the Company’s fiber optic and broadband wireless network expands, the Company will attempt to market its Internet access provider services to businesses and retail customers along the route of the network.

Digital and Alpha Paging Services: Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Action Communications, Inc. (“Action”), the Company provides digital and alpha numeric paging services to nine southeastern states and is expanding its coverage area to include portions of the eastern and southwestern United States. As a specialized mobile radio carrier, Action also provides dispatch, telephone and global position system services.

Remote Data Storage: During fiscal 2000, the Company took delivery of $575,000 of equipment that will allow third parties to store and access data stored in digital form on computer systems maintained and operated by the Company in its facility in Iuka, Mississippi.

In November 2000, the Company was awarded a $300,000 research contract to demonstrate commercial applications of statewide remote sensing data. The Company worked with PixSell, Inc., a Mississippi information technology company, and the University of Mississippi’s Department of Computer and Information Science. Under the six-month contract, which was completed in September 2001, the Company expanded and enhanced the existing “Mississippi View” data management system. The View System was developed by PixSell to provide greater access to Mississippi statewide remote sensing satellite and imagery. The enhanced archived View System makes it a Real Time asset for education, state agencies, and MSCI commercial users. MSCI is a partnership between the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the University of Mississippi, and high technology businesses. NASA and the State of Mississippi fund MSCI projects. The mission of MSCI is to develop a remote sensing industry in Mississippi by commercializing the technologies developed by NASA at the Stennis Space Center in Hancock County, Mississippi.

Application Service Provider: In August 2001, the Company reached an agreement with Infusion Software Group, LLC (Infusion) to form Global PTX, LLC. The Company and Infusion have established an Application Service Provider business to design, develop and implement data warehousing and data mining applications. Global PTX will establish Private Trade Exchanges focusing on providing customers with an “end-to-end” solution for their business strategies. Initial development activities will be designed to target the Manufacturing and Retail Business Industry Sectors, specifically focused on vendor/customer supply chain management. Infusion is a specialized software and marketing service provider to enterprises throughout the United States.

At present, the Company provides four distinct services to consumers and small businesses: Internet access, digital and alpha paging services, remote data storage and application services.

2. Recent Accounting Pronouncements:

In June 2001, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued SFAS No. 141, Business Combinations (“SFAS 141”) and No. 142, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets (“SFAS 142”), which collectively address business combinations and intangible assets acquired individually, with a group of other assets, or in a business combination. SFAS 141 and 142 will become effective July 1, 2002 and are not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

3. Investments:

The Company’s investments are classified as available-for-sale. The amortized cost, gross unrealized losses and estimated fair value, less the option price of $0.12 per share, for these investments were as follows at September 30, 2001 and June 30, 2001.

Fiber optic cable has not yet been installed within such conduit purchased from Qwest Communications. The agreement with Qwest calls for payments by the Company of approximately $15 million over the course of the agreement, all of which is currently past due. Qwest has declared a default, but has not initiated arbitration or other proceedings to recover the conduit. The $15 million became due and payable on March 31, 2001. Previously, the Company had recorded a discount on the note payable of $723,109, which was fully amortized into expense at March 31, 2001.

The Company has installed 24 miles of conduit, of which approximately 8 miles was sold to Bell South in February 2001, providing access to the Company’s enterprise data center in Iuka, Mississippi.

5. Other Assets:

Other assets consist of the following items as of:

In July 2000, the Company and Global Fiber Optic and Wireless Communications, Ltd. (“Global”) each advanced $200,000 for developing a joint venture to provide a 4,000 mile fiber optic communications and Internet network in Turkey. The Company and Global will each have a fifty (50%) percent interest in the joint venture. The Company will be required to provide electronic and communications technologies, while Global will provide rights-of-way and other real estate as needed in Turkey. Currently, the advances are being used by the proposed joint venture to purchase rights-of-way and other assets to be utilized in the future operations of the joint venture. The advance is guaranteed by the majority shareholder and repayment is secured by certain Company payables to the majority shareholder.

In August 2001, the Company reached an agreement with Infusion Software Group, LLC (Infusion) to form Global PTX, LLC. The Company and Infusion have established an Application Service Provider business to design, develop and implement data warehousing and data mining applications. Global PTX will establish Private Trade Exchanges focusing on providing customers with an “end-to-end” solution for their business strategies. Initial development activities will be designed to target the Manufacturing and Retail Business Industry Sectors, specifically focused on vendor/customer supply chain management. Infusion is a specialized software and marketing service provider to enterprises throughout the United States. During the quarter ended September 30, 2001, the Company invested $93,000 in this venture (See Note 7).

6. Commitments:

In March 2001, the Company agreed to a new 20-year lease, effective January 1, 1999, with the State of Mississippi for its main facilities in Iuka, Mississippi. This lease provides the Company with 25,000 square feet of office and equipment space at the former National Aeronautics and Space Administration facility. The State, acting through the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA), has also granted the Company a 10-year right of first refusal to lease an additional 75,000 square feet at the Iuka facility, to accommodate the Company's expansive business plan.

The Company also leases approximately 3,000 square feet of office space in Denver, Colorado at an annual rent of approximately $36,000, which is used primarily for sales and marketing purposes. The lease expires November 30, 2003.

The Company has agreed to sell to the majority shareholder up to 5,000 shares of Series B Preferred Stock at $1,000 per share. As of September 30, 2001, 2,003 such shares were sold to the shareholder.

The Company has one employment agreement with the Vice President of Operations, which expires December 31, 2001. In addition to a base salary, the agreement provides the employee options to acquire the Company's stock.

On March 26, 2001, the Company was served with a summons and complaint entitled Tom Epperson, Freddie Wilson and Omega Shelters, Inc. v. North American DataCom, Inc. and North American Infotech, LLC, (U.S.D.C. Northern District of Mississippi, Case No. 1:02CV105-D-D). The action relates to alleged damages resulting from an agreement to build a prototype composite fiber shelter by Omega Shelters, which prototype was subject to the Company’s receipt and acceptance. The agreement at issue also contains an arbitration provision. In the complaint plaintiff states that Omega Shelters’ immediate predecessor, Yellow Creek Lodges, Inc., was forced into bankruptcy in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Mississippi. While the dismissed action sought damages of $2.2 million, the Company believes that the claim for damages is wholly without merit and that the Company will not be materially adversely affected by the outcome of any future proceedings, if filed. By decision of the Court dated June 28, 2001, the matter was dismissed without prejudice for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. No further action has been filed.

David Cray, former Vice President and Corporate Treasurer, departed the Company effective March 5, 2001, upon his return from a leave of absence. Mr. Cray and the Company disagree about the terms and circumstances of Mr. Cray’s departure, and will attempt to reach an agreement, and, if necessary, resolve the matter through the arbitration process.

On June 13, 2001, the Company was served with a summons and complaint in the matter known as OptiCom v. North American DataCom, Inc., (County Court of Tishomingo, State of Mississippi, Cause No. CV01-0077(G)T). Plaintiff OptiCom has alleged that the Company has failed to pay $28,000 for optical conduit provided for the last mile access along the Tishomingo Railroad. The Company is defending the lawsuit and has engaged OptiCom in settlement negotiations.

The Company does not believe the ultimate outcome of the aforementioned matters will have a significant impact on the Company’s financial position and results of operations or liquidity.

9. Stockholders' Equity:

In September 2001, the Company sold 191 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock to a principal shareholder for $190,990. In July 2001, the cumulative dividends payable on the Series B Convertible Preferred Stock totaling $55,950 from fiscal 2001 were exchanged for 56 additional shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock. The conversion ratio was amended by action of the Board of Directors to 8,333 shares of restricted common stock for each share of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock that was issued after June 30, 2001, to reflect recent changes in the price of its shares of common stock on the OTC:BB.

In August 2001, the Company issued 90,000 shares of common stock totaling $12,600 for electrical services rendered.

In August 2001, the Company issued 40,000 shares of common stock totaling $10,000 in exchange for equipment.

In August 2001, the Company issued 250,000 shares of common stock totaling $25,625 to a former employee in full and fair settlement of claims and in exchange for reciprocal general releases related to his termination in July 2001.

10. Notes Payable:

In September 2001, a note was issued to Citrus Springs Trust, a significant shareholder, in the amount of $100,000 due on or before December 31, 2001. Interest will accrue at a rate of one and one half percent (1.50%) per month on the unpaid balance of this note after the maturity date. The note holder was granted an option to acquire a block of 100,000 shares of non-restricted common stock for ten cents ($0.10) a share, which is exercisable until December 31, 2003.

In September 2001, a note was issued to Jack Freeman, President, in the amount of $40,000 due on or before December 31, 2001. Interest will accrue from September 1, 2001 at a rate of three quarters of a percent per month until maturity and at one and one half percent (1.50%) per month on the unpaid balance of this note after the maturity date. The note holder was granted an option to acquire a block of 100,000 shares of non-restricted common stock for sixteen cents ($0.16) a share, which is exercisable until December 31, 2003.

Collectively, the stock options were valued at $8,000 and deferred as financing costs.

11. Liquidity:

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates continuity of operations and realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. At September 30, 2001, the Company has negative working capital totaling $16,900,000. The Qwest obligation, discussed earlier under in Note 4, accounts for $15.1 million of this amount. The Company has an arrearage of certain federal tax liabilities of approximately $600,000, including payroll liabilities. In addition, the Company incurred losses totaling $5,986,455 since inception (September 1, 1998). These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue on as a going concern. The continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon the Company raising additional capital, and attaining and maintaining profitable operations.

The Company has identified potential sources of capital and potential joint venture and/or strategic partners and believes that they will be able to secure the necessary capital to put their business plan into operation. The capital requirements for the Global PTX are included in the earlier announced capital planning. This is part of the EDS Center investment of Segment 1 of the bandwidth network. In March 2001, the Company entered into an agreement with IFG Private Equity LLC. Under this agreement IFG will purchase up to $50 million of the Company's common stock through February 2003. The agreement is planned to operate in a manner similar to a line of credit, allowing the Company to draw upon funds periodically, when and if desired. The funding is planned to provide the underlying support to proceed with the business plan. The funding is subject to SEC approval of a registration filing regarding the equity financing. The Company intends to use the financing to immediately expand its fiber optic and related data storage operations. As of September 30, 2001, the registration filing has not been submitted to the SEC for review, and the Company can make no assurances that such registration statement will be become effective when filed.

Acquisitions

The Company was organized in September 1998 as North American Software Associates, Limited, a Delaware corporation. It was organized to provide a variety of telecommunications services. On April 1, 1999, the Company acquired all of the assets of Freedom 2000, a local Internet Service Provider (ISP), in exchange for 577,123 restricted shares of its common stock. On December 3, 1999, the Company acquired all of the common stock of Action Communications, Inc. ("Action"), a provider of digital and alpha numeric paging services, in exchange for 1,731,339 restricted shares of its common stock. The Action transaction has been treated for accounting purposes as a purchase of assets and liabilities, and revenues and expenses of Action prior to December 3, 1999 have not been consolidated. Effective December 21, 1999, North American Software Associates, Limited ("NAS") was acquired by Pierce International, Inc. in a share exchange transaction and in March 2000, the Company changed its name to North American DataCom, Inc. The transaction with Pierce International, Inc. has been accounted for as a reverse acquisition since the former shareholders of NAS owned controlling interest in the Company immediately following the transaction and management of Pierce International, Inc. was replaced by management of NAS.

Overview

The Company is in the process of deploying a 3,000 mile broadband network in the states of Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia and Florida, to provide application services, communications and information technology services with an emphasis on wideband fiber optic and wireless telecommunications services that support Enterprise Data Storage (EDS) and Application Service solutions. The Company utilizes advanced, state-of-the-art technology for its network to provide a wide range of services to telecommunication companies, ISPs and large organizations, including government agencies and departments. Its plan is to provide superior quality and secure broadband communications in connection with its data storage services. The Company’s Enterprise Data Storage business (EDS) enables it to archive data, using two highly secure "Major Center" at its headquarters in Iuka, MS. In addition, the Company plans to initially operate five co-location data storage "Satellite Centers" to provide mirroring and archiving services that are directly connected by its fiber optic network at its Major Center in Iuka, MS.

The Company also provides Internet access services and digital and alphanumeric paging services. To date, the Company’s revenues have been derived from its Internet access services, paging services and data storage to consumers and small businesses.

In August 2001, the Company reached an agreement with Infusion Software Group, LLC (Infusion) to form Global PTX, LLC. The Company and Infusion have established an Application Service Provider business to design, develop and implement data warehousing and data mining applications. Global PTX will establish Private Trade Exchanges focusing on providing customers with an “end-to-end” solution for their business strategies. Initial development activities will be designed to target the Manufacturing and Retail Business Industry Sectors, specifically focused on vendor/customer supply chain management. Infusion is a specialized software and marketing service provider to enterprises throughout the United States. During the quarter ended September 30, 2001, the Company invested $93,000 in this venture.

Revised Business Plan Information

On October 24, 2001, the Company announced its approved revised Business Plan. The revised plan is focusing on immediate revenue growth and immediate reduction of investment and expenses associated with delayed broadband infrastructure development. This Plan that had been formulated last year with Cap Gemini Ernst and Young, calls for the construction of a 3,000-mile fiber optic network throughout the Southeast United States. The Company has divided the proposed fiber optic network construction into six discreet segments. The Company now plans to complete the first segment (roughly 550 route miles, extending from Atlanta to Memphis) by late 2002. The original 5-year Plan identified a $700 million capital investment for seven EDS centers, plus the 3,000-route-mile broadband network. The current market pricing has reduced the estimated capital investment to under $400 million. Revenues at the end of 5 years were projected to be over $500 million.

The Company’s revised business plan continues to project operating cash flow to be breakeven by the end of this fiscal year, June 30, 2002. The revenues and net income in the next fiscal year are estimated at approximately $60 million and $10 million, respectively. Under the revised plan, the Company still expects to have a positive cash flow by June 2002, and profits in August 2002.

Results of Operations

For the Three-Month Period Ended September 30, 2001 Compared to the Three-Month Period Ended September 30, 2000

For the three-month period ended September 30, 2001, the Company had net service revenues of $92,946 compared to $69,432 for the comparable period of the prior year, excluding Pixsell revenue of $45,977 for the three-month period ended September 30, 2001. This represents an increase of $23,514 or 34%. Cost of services was $30,335 during the three-month period ended September 30, 2001 compared to $48,014 for the three-month period ended September 30, 2000. The decrease in cost of services is a reflection of control of incremental costs and results of cost reduction efforts further described below. The Company’s gross profit margins were, excluding Pixsell, were 67% and 31%, respectively.

The Company incurred selling, general and administrative expenses of $421,198 during the three-month period ended September 30, 2001 compared to $715,864 for the same period of the prior year. This decrease was primarily attributed to the expense reduction program put in place in June 2001, which decreased labor expense by $46,000, travel expense by $27,000, and legal expenses by $87,000. In addition, during the three-month period ended September 30, 2001 no employee relocation expense was incurred compared to $45,000 incurred during the same period of the prior year. In effect, its operating loss decreased from $694,446 during the three-month period ended September 30, 2000 to $312,610 for the three-month period ended September 30, 2001 or a decrease of 55%.

The Company had other income of $42 for the three-month period ended September 30, 2001 compared to other expense of $174,640 for the three-month period ended September 30, 2000. The other expense during the three-month period ended September 30, 2000, was largely attributable to the imputed interest expense relating to a contract to acquire rights-of-way and fiber conduit.

Liquidity

Total current assets at September 30, 2001 were $110,392 compared to $103,247 at its fiscal year ended June 30, 2001, or an increase of 7%. The Company’s accounts receivable decreased by $6,717 from $76,230 at June 30, 2001 to $69,513 at September 30, 2001.

Fixed assets, consisting principally of property and equipment, was $16,207,098 at September 30, 2001 compared to $16,248,399 at June 30, 2001. This decrease was primarily due to the sale of a vehicle of $27,017. Other assets increased from $651,794 at June 30, 2001 to $702,924 at September 30, 2001. This increase was primarily attributable to an investment in Global PTX, LLC of $93,000. Total assets at September 30, 2001 were $17,020,414 compared to $17,003,440 at June 30, 2001.

The current liabilities were $17,004,191 at September 30, 2001 compared to $16,944,152 at June 30, 2001. The Qwest obligation, discussed in Note 4 of the Condensed Consolidated Notes to Financial Statements, accounts for $15.1 million of these amounts. At September 30, 2001, the Company had accounts payable of $993,358 compared to $1,044,558 at June 30, 2001. This decrease is primarily due to the expense reduction program put in place in June 2001, which decreased travel expense and legal expenses, conversion of accounts payable to common stock and payment of accounts payable by notes payable. At September 30, 2001, the Company had accrued expenses and other liabilities of $892,833 compared to $781,594 at June 30, 2001. The increase in accrued expense and other liabilities is attributable to the increase in notes payable of $140,000, which was used to fund the Company’s working capital, and is partially offset by conversion of dividends payable and payable to officer to preferred stock.

For the three-month period ended September 30, 2001, the Company used $208,092 for its operating activities, of which $34,158 was attributable to a decrease in other assets and $24,215 increase in accounts payable, compared to $522,273 cash used for operating activities, of which $135,489 was attributable to an increase in other assets and $183,101 increase in accounts payable, during the same three-month period of the prior year. This improvement in cash flow from operating activities was principally the result of an increase in current liabilities. For the three-month period ended September 30, 2001, the Company’s cash flow provided by investing activities was $8,064, from the purchase and sale of some property and equipment. The negative cash flow from operating activities was financed with proceeds from the sale of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock and proceeds from the issuance of convertible notes. The Company had $30,783 of cash at September 30, 2001 compared to cash of $176,823 at fiscal year end June 30, 2001.

The Company has modified its business plan to accommodate prevailing capital market conditions and the difficulty in securing financing at acceptable terms. The Company estimates that its capital needs to be approximately $18,000,000 during the next twelve months. This will fund approximately $5,000,000 for network assets; $8,000,000 for data storage center construction and improvements; and $5,000,000 for working capital requirements. Actual costs and estimates may vary from its current expectations, which could materially adversely affect its business and financial conditions. These are included in the five-year capital plan discussed herein.

In addition, the Company’s liquidity is adversely affected by accounts payable from the purchase from Qwest of approximately 500 miles of fiber conduit from New Orleans, LA to Mobile, AL and from Pensacola, FL to Jacksonville, FL. The total purchase price under the bill of sale is approximately $15,120,000. This is being renegotiated to revise the payment schedule with Qwest. The Company plans to achieve a revised payment schedule, of which there can be no assurance.

In August 2000, the Company entered into an agreement with a third-party contractor to lay fiber conduit between Atlanta, Georgia and Chattanooga, Tennessee and from Chattanooga to Memphis, Tennessee. The contractor did not complete the conduit installation. The Company has not made any payments under this agreement. This agreement was terminated due to changing in the schedule of installations. The Company plans to amend certain terms of the agreement based upon new schedules.

In order to fund working capital needs, the Company sold restricted securities (See Note 9, Stockholders' Equity, to the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements) to Robert Crawford, chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer, director and principal shareholder as follows: in September 2001, the Company sold 191 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock for $190,990. In July 2001, the cumulative dividends payable on the Series B Convertible Preferred Stock totaling $55,950 for fiscal 2001 were exchanged for 56 additional shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock.

Continuing capital requirements are substantial, and the Company is planning to fund those needs. As reflected in the Company’s financial statements for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2001, which were filed with its Annual Report on Form 10-K, the accountant's opinion included a going-concern qualification. Reference is made to Note 10, Liquidity, to the Company’s Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and the disclosure that as of September 30, 2001, the Company had negative working capital totaling approximately $16,900,000. The Qwest obligation accounts for $15.1 million of this amount (See Note 4 in the Condensed Consolidated Notes to financial statements). The Company has an arrearage of certain federal tax liabilities of approximately $600,000, including payroll liabilities. In addition, the Company has sustained start-up losses of $5,986,455, since inception (September 1, 1998). The continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon the Company raising additional capital, and attaining and maintaining profitable operations.

The Company has identified potential sources of capital and potential joint venture and/or strategic partners and believes that it will be able to secure the necessary capital to implement its revised business plan. The capital requirements for the Global PTX are included in the earlier announced capital planning. This is part of the EDS Center investment of Segment 1 of the bandwidth network.

In March 2001, the Company entered into an agreement with IFG Private Equity, LLC. Under this agreement IFG will purchase up to $50 million of the Company’s common stock through February 2003. The agreement is planned to operate in a manner similar to a line of credit, allowing the Company to draw upon funds periodically, when and if desired. The funding is planned to provide the underlying support to proceed with the business plan. The funding is subject to SEC approval of a registration filing regarding the equity financing. The Company intends to use the financing to immediately expand its fiber optic and related data storage operations. As of November 2001, the registration filing has not been submitted to the SEC for review, and the Company can make no assurance that such registration statement will become effective when filed.

Risks Affecting Future Results

A number of risk factors exist that may impair or prevent the Company from accomplishing the its proposed business plan in some or all respects. Those risk factors include the following matters among others:

The Company is a Start Up with Historical Losses.

Substantially all of the Company’s historical revenues have been derived from its Internet access provider services and digital and alpha paging services. The Company has experienced operating losses in each fiscal quarter since inception and will likely continue to experience such losses. Because the Company’s operating history is extremely limited, and has just commenced operations on its fiber optic and wireless broadband network and enterprise data storage (EDS) facility, it is difficult to evaluate the Company’s business operations and prospects.

The Company Needs Substantial Additional Capital – Insolvency.

Present cash flow from operations is not sufficient to pay certain of the Company’s debts as presently structured. At September 30, 2001, the Company had negative working capital of approximately $16,900,000, and estimates that it will need to secure additional capital of approximately $18,000,000 to finance its operations and capital needs over the next twelve months. See the discussion under "Liquidity" above. The failure of the Company to obtain additional capital will significantly restrict its proposed operations and may make it impossible for the Company to fulfill the timing of its proposed business plan.

Default of Certain Obligations.

In March 2000, the Company entered into an agreement with Qwest Communications in which the Company purchased 504 miles of conduit installed along the CSX railroad track from New Orleans, Louisiana to Mobile, Alabama, and from Pensacola, Florida to Jacksonville, Florida. Fiber optic cable has not yet been installed within such conduit purchased from Qwest Communications. The agreement with Qwest calls for payments of approximately $15 million over the course of the agreement, all which is currently past due by the Company. Qwest has declared a default, but has not initiated arbitration or other proceedings to recover the conduit.

In August 2000, the Company entered into an agreement with a third-party contractor to lay fiber conduit between Atlanta, Georgia and Chattanooga, Tennessee and from Chattanooga to Memphis, Tennessee. The contractor did not complete the conduit installation. The Company has not made any payments under this agreement. This agreement was terminated due to changing in the schedule of installations. The Company plans to amend certain terms of the agreement based upon new schedules. The Company has installed 24 miles of conduit, of which approximately 8 miles was sold to Bell South in fiscal 2001, providing access to the Company’s enterprise data center in Iuka, Mississippi.

The Company Leases its Facilities.

On March 7, 2001, the Company finalized a new 20-year lease with the State of Mississippi for its primary facility in Iuka, MS, for 25,000 square feet of office and equipment space. This facility is essential to the Company’s proposed business plan because it already contains many of the features necessary for the Company to establish an enterprise data storage (EDS) facility. The State of Mississippi, acting through the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA), has also granted the Company a 10-year right of first refusal to lease an additional 75,000 square feet at the Iuka facility, to accommodate the Company’s expansive business plan.

The Company Experiences General Risks Associated with Business.

The future success of the Company is heavily dependent on its ability to develop, promote and sustain strong government relationships, reach agreements with certain third parties necessary for the telecommunications needs of its operations and attract and retain customers at suitable prices. The Company’s business involves competition with existing companies many of which have far greater capital resources and longer operating histories than the Company. There can be no assurance that the business of the Company will ever be profitable.

The Company will Likely Experience Customer Concentration.

Until and unless the Company secures multiple customer relationships, it is likely that the Company will experience periods during which it will be highly dependent on one or a limited number of customers. Dependence on a single or a few customers will make it difficult to satisfactorily negotiate attractive prices for the Company's services and will expose the Company to the risk of substantial losses if a single dominant customer stops conducting business with the Company.

The Company Must Comply with Telecommunications Regulations.

Most of the Company's proposed business services and products are subject to regulation at the federal and state levels. These regulations are in some cases uncertain and are often undergoing change. The failure of the Company to comply with these regulations could have a materially adverse effect on the Company.

The Company Must Comply with Environmental Regulations.

The Company's intended operations, especially the construction and operation of a fiber optic network, are subject to various federal, state and local laws and regulations relating to the protection of the environment. These environmental laws and regulations, which have become increasingly stringent, are implemented principally by the Environmental Protection Agency and comparable state agencies, and govern the management of hazardous wastes, the discharge of pollutants into the air and into surface and underground waters, and the manufacture and disposal of certain substances. There are no material environmental claims currently pending or, to the Company's knowledge, threatened against the Company. In addition, the Company believes that its operations are in material compliance with current laws and regulations. The Company estimates that any expenses incurred in maintaining compliance with current laws and regulations will not have a material effect on the Company's earnings or capital expenditures. However, there can be no assurance that current regulatory requirements will not change, that currently unforeseen environmental incidents will not occur, or that past non-compliance with environmental laws will not be discovered on the Company's properties.

The Company's Operating Results are Likely to Fluctuate Widely.

The Company expects that its operating results for the foreseeable future are likely to fluctuate widely from quarter to quarter and from year to year. This is especially true while the Company is building its fiber optic and wireless broadband network. Fluctuation of results may occur due to a variety of factors including, demand for and market acceptance of the Company's products and services, reliability of service and network availability, the ability to increase bandwidth as necessary, customer retention, capacity utilization of the Company's enterprise data storage facility, the timing of customer needs, the timing and magnitude of capital expenditures, changes in pricing policies or practices of competitors, and changes in governmental regulations.

The Company will Face Significant Competition.

The Company's market is intensely competitive. There can be no assurance that the Company will have the resources to compete successfully in the future. Current and potential competitors include national, foreign and regional Internet service providers, global, regional and local telecommunications companies and the Regional Bell Operating Companies, providers of server hosting and data storage services, and other technology services and products companies. Most of these competitors will have substantially greater resources than the Company.

The Company is Entering a New Market.

The market for Internet system and network management solutions has only recently begun to develop, is evolving rapidly and is characterized by an increasing number of market entrants. This market may not prove to be viable or, if it becomes viable, may not continue to grow. The Company currently incurs costs in excess of its revenues. If the Company cannot attract and retain a customer base, it will not be able to increase its sales and revenues nor create economies of scale to offset its fixed and operating costs.

The Company Must be able to Manage Growth.

In order for the Company to accomplish its proposed business plan, it must experience rapid growth in building its enterprise data storage facilities and network infrastructure, expand its service offering, expand its geographical coverage, expand its customer base and increase the number of employees. This growth is expected to place a significant strain on the Company's financial, management, operational and other resources, including its ability to ensure customer satisfaction. This expansion will require significant time commitments from senior management and involve the efficient management of multiple relationships with a growing number of third parties. The Company's ability to manage its growth effectively will require the Company to continue to expand operating and financial procedures and controls, to upgrade operational, financial and management information systems and to attract, train, motivate and retain key employees. The ability to attract, hire and retain qualified employees in today's competitive employment market is another significant challenge which the Company faces. If the Company's executives are unable to manage growth effectively, the Company's business could be materially adversely affected.

System Failures Could Lead to Significant Costs.

The Company must protect its network infrastructure and equipment against damage from human error, physical or electronic security breaches, power loss and other facility failures, fire, earthquake, flood, telecommunications failure, sabotage, vandalism and similar events. Despite extensive precautions the Company has taken, a natural disaster or other unanticipated problems at the Company's facilities could result in interruptions in services or significant damage to customer equipment or data. Any damage to or failure of the Company's systems or service providers could result in reductions in, or terminations of, services supplied to the Company's customers, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business.

The Company will Depend on Network Interconnections with Third Parties.

The Company will rely, in part, on a number of public and private network interconnections to allow its customers to connect to other networks. If the networks with which the Company interconnects were to discontinue their interconnections, the Company's ability to exchange traffic would be significantly constrained. Furthermore, the Company's business could be harmed if these networks do not add more bandwidth to accommodate increased traffic. Some of these networks will likely require the payment of fees for the right to maintain interconnections. There usually is nothing to prevent any networks from increasing fees or denying access. In such cases, the Company's ability to pursue the proposed business plan could be materially adversely affected.

Some of the Company's Business may be Subject to International Risks.

The Company is pursuing international business opportunities, especially with respect to the Country of Turkey. Risks inherent in international operations include unexpected changes in regulatory requirements, export restrictions, tariffs and other trade barriers; challenges in staffing and managing foreign operations; differences in technology standards; employment laws and practices in foreign countries; longer payment cycles and problems in collecting accounts receivable; political instability; changes in currency exchange rates and imposition of currency exchange controls and potentially adverse tax consequences.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

The Company has not entered into any transaction using derivative financial instruments and believes that its exposure to market risk associated with other financial instruments is not material. The Company's cash equivalents are maintained primarily in money market risks maturing in less than three months. Accordingly, the Company does not believe that it has any significant exposure to interest rate risk. The Company currently operates only in the United States and all sales are made in U.S. dollars. Accordingly, the Company does not have any material exposure to foreign currency rate fluctuations.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

Reference is made in Note 8 to the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

On March 26, 2001, the Company was served with a summons and complaint entitled Tom Epperson, Freddie Wilson and Omega Shelters, Inc. v. North American DataCom, Inc. and North American Infotech, LLC, (U.S.D.C. Northern District of Mississippi, Case No. 1:02CV105-D-D). The action relates to alleged damages resulting from an agreement to build a prototype composite fiber shelter by Omega Shelters, which prototype was subject to the Company’s receipt and acceptance. The agreement at issue also contains an arbitration provision. In the complaint plaintiff’s state that Omega Shelters’ immediate predecessor, Yellow Creek Lodges, Inc., was forced into bankruptcy in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Mississippi. While the dismissed action sought damages of $2.2 million, the Company believes that the claim for damages is wholly without merit and that the Company will not be materially adversely affected by the outcome of any future proceedings, if filed. By decision of the Court dated June 28, 2001, the matter was dismissed without prejudice for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. No further action has been filed.

David Cray, the Company's former vice president and treasurer, resigned his positions effective March 5, 2001, which resignation followed a leave of absence. The Company disagrees with Mr. Cray regarding the terms and circumstances of Mr. Cray’s departure and has received a Notice of Arbitration from Mr. Cray pursuant to his employment agreement. The Company is exploring avenues to resolve the matter with Mr. Cray, and believes that it has strong meritorious to Mr. Cray's claims. The Company does not believe that any claims by Mr. Cray, even if successful, will have a material adverse effect upon the Company or its financial condition.

On June 13, 2001, the Company was served with a summons and complaint in the matter known as OptiCom v. North American DataCom, Inc., (County Court of Tishomingo, State of Mississippi, Cause No. CV01-0077(G)T). Plaintiff OptiCom has alleged that the Company has failed to pay $28,000 for optical conduit provided for the last mile access along the Tishomingo Railroad. The Company is defending the lawsuit and has engaged OptiCom in settlement negotiations.
