ITEM 5. OTHER EVENTS

We entered into an Agreement with IFG Private Equity, LLC, an Atlanta-based institutional investor, for a minimum of $25 million in equity financing, with an option on our part for an additional $25 million. Under the terms of this Agreement, IFG will purchase up to $50 million of North American DataCom's common stock over the next 24 months. The Agreement is planned to operate in a manner similar to a line of credit, allowing us to draw upon funds periodically, when and if desired, which draw-down rights may be restricted by certain provisions of the Agreement such as volume and price of our common stock. This funding is planned to provide the underlying support for us to proceed with our business plan. We intend to use the financing to immediately expand our fiber optic network and related data storage operations. We are currently deploying a 3,000 plus mile fiber optic backbone network in the southeastern United States, using the latest in fiber, optical transmission and broadband wireless distribution technologies. We plan on filing a registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933 under this Agreement.

(b) Draw Downs. Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein, on any Trading Day during the Commitment Period on which the conditions set forth in Sections 6.2 and 6.3 hereof have been satisfied, the Company may exercise a Draw Down by the delivery of a Draw Down Notice to IFG. The aggregate number of Draw Down Shares that IFG shall be obligated to purchase pursuant to such Draw Down shall be determined by dividing the relevant portions of the Investment Amount specified in the Draw Down Notice by the corresponding Purchase Prices for each Trading Day during the Draw Down Pricing Period as specified in Section 2.3(c).

(c) Maximum Amount of Draw Down Shares. Unless the Company obtains the approval of its stockholders in accordance with the corporate laws of the State of Delaware and the applicable rules of the Principal Market, no more than 10,000,000 shares of Common Stock (the "Maximum Share Amount") may be issued and sold pursuant to all Draw Downs hereunder.

(d) Warrants. Concurrently herewith, the Company will issue and deliver to IFG or its permitted assignees, Warrants to purchase 250,000 shares of Common Stock. The Warrants will have a term of five (5) years. The Warrant Shares to be issued pursuant to the Warrants shall be registered for resale in accordance with the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement. Notwithstanding any termination of this Agreement, regardless of whether or not the Registration Statement is or is not filed, and regardless of whether or not the Registration Statement is approved or denied by the SEC, IFG shall retain full ownership of the Warrants as partial consideration for its commitment hereunder. The terms and conditions of the Warrants are more particularly set forth in the Commitment Warrant, attached hereto and incorporated herein as Exhibit A.

Section 2.2 Investment Commitment.

(a) Investment Commitment Closing. The closing of this Agreement (the "Closing") shall be deemed to occur when this Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement have been executed by both IFG and the Company, and the other conditions set forth in Section 2.2(b) below have been met.

(b) Conditions to IFG’s Obligations. As a prerequisite to the Closing and IFG’s obligations hereunder, all of the following conditions shall have been satisfied prior to or concurrently with the Company's execution and delivery of this Agreement:

(1) the following documents shall have been delivered to IFG: (i) the Registration Rights Agreement (executed by the Company); (ii) the Warrant(s)(executed by the Company); (iii) the opinion(s) of counsel in the forms attached hereto as Exhibit D; (iv) a copy of the Irrevocable Transfer Agent Instructions (executed by both the Company and the Transfer Agent); (v) a Secretary's certificate as to (A) the resolutions of the Company's Board of Directors authorizing this transaction, (B) the Company's Certificate of Incorporation, and (C) the Company's Bylaws; and (vi) an Officer's Certificate in form and substance to be agreed upon by the parties;

(2) this Agreement, as executed by the Company, shall have been received by IFG;

(3) the Company's Common Stock shall be listed for trading and actually trading on a Principal Market;

(4) since the date of filing of the Company's most recent SEC Document, no event that had or is reasonably likely to have a Material Adverse Effect shall have occurred; and

(5) the representations and warranties of the Company in this Agreement shall be true and correct in all material respects and the conditions to IFG’s obligations set forth in this Section 2.2(b) shall have been satisfied as of the Closing; and the Company shall deliver an Officer's Certificate, signed by an officer of the Company, to such effect to IFG.

Section 2.3 Mechanics of Draw Downs.

(a) Draw Down Notice. On any Trading Day during the Commitment Period, the Company may deliver a Draw Down Notice to IFG, subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Sections 6.2 and 6.3; provided, however, the Investment Amount for each Draw Down as designated by the Company in the applicable Draw Down Notice shall be neither less than the Minimum Draw Down Amount nor more than the Maximum Draw Down Amount (as determined as of the applicable Draw Down Date); provided further, however, that if the Maximum Draw Down Amount as of the applicable Draw Down Date is less than the Minimum Draw Down Amount, the Company shall not be entitled to deliver any such Draw Down Notice.

(b) Date of Delivery of Draw Down Notice. A Draw Down Notice shall be deemed delivered on (i) the Trading Day it is received by facsimile or otherwise by IFG if such notice is received prior to 3:00 p.m., New York City time, or (ii) the immediately succeeding Trading Day if it is received by facsimile or otherwise after 3:00 p.m., New York City time, on a Trading Day or at any time on a day which is not a Trading Day. No Draw Down Notice may be deemed delivered on a day that is not a Trading Day.

(c) Determination of Draw Down Shares Issuable. Subject to Sections 2.3(d) and (e) below, the number of Draw Down Shares to be purchased by IFG with respect to any Draw Down shall be determined on a daily basis during the applicable Draw Down Pricing Period and shall equal with respect to any such Trading Day the quotient of (x) one-twentieth (1/20) of the Investment Amount (or such other fraction based upon the agreed Draw Down Pricing Period), divided by (y) the Purchase Price for such Trading Day. The portion of the Investment Amount for which Draw Down Shares may be issued for each Trading Day during the Draw Down Pricing Period may not exceed one-twentieth (1/20) of the Investment Amount (or such other fraction based upon the agreed Draw Down Pricing Period).

(d) Floor Price Limitation. If the VWAP on any Trading Day during a Draw Down Pricing Period is less than the Floor Price specified in the applicable Draw Down Notice, the Company shall not sell and IFG shall not purchase the Draw Down Shares otherwise to be purchased for such Trading Day. In such case, the Investment Amount shall be reduced by one-twentieth (1/20) of the Investment Amount (or such other fraction based upon the agreed Draw Down Pricing Period) for each such Trading Day.

(e) Minimum Trading Hours Limitation. In the event that the Common Stock is not listed and approved for trading on a Principal Market and free from any halts or suspensions of trading (whether imposed generally on such Principal Market or specifically with respect to the Common Stock) for a period of at least six (6) hours on any Trading Day during a Draw Down Pricing Period, then the portion of the Investment Amount allocable to the purchase of Draw Down Shares with respect to such Trading Day pursuant to clause (x) of Section 2.3(c) above shall equal the product of (x) one-twentieth (1/20) of the Investment Amount (or such other fraction based upon the agreed Draw Down Pricing Period), multiplied by (y) the quotient of (A) the number of hours (or portions thereof) during which the Common Stock actually trades on the Principal Market on such Trading Day (exclusive of any halts or suspensions of trading imposed generally on the Principal Market or specifically with respect to the Common Stock), divided by (B) 6.5. In such event, the Investment Amount shall be reduced by the difference between one-twentieth (1/20) of the Investment Amount (or such other fraction based upon the agreed Draw Down Pricing Period) and the amount calculated pursuant to the preceding sentence for each such Trading Day.

Section 2.4 Settlements. Subject to the provisions of Section 6.4, on each Settlement Date the Company shall, unless otherwise instructed by IFG, cause the Transfer Agent to electronically transmit shares of Common Stock to IFG (by crediting the account of IFG’S prime broker, as designated by IFG, with the Depository Trust Corporation through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission system ("DWAC Transfer")) representing the Shares to be purchased by IFG on such Settlement Date with respect to the Draw Down Pricing Period immediately preceding such Settlement Date pursuant to Section 2.3(c) herein and, upon receipt of such Shares, IFG shall deliver the portion of the Investment Amount representing the Shares to be purchased on such Settlement Date by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated by the Company on or before the Settlement Date. In addition, on or prior to each such Settlement Date, each of the Company and IFG shall deliver all documents, instruments and writings required to be delivered by either of them pursuant to this Agreement in order to implement and effect the transactions contemplated herein.

Section 2.5 Liquidated Damages. In the event the Shares are not timely delivered by the Company on any Settlement Date, the Company will pay IFG, as liquidated damages for such failure to deliver and not as a penalty, two percent (2%) of the aggregate Purchase Price for such Shares for each seven (7) calendar day period, or part thereof, following such failure, in cash, until such Shares have been delivered. Such amount may be subtracted by IFG from the portion of the Investment Amount otherwise payable by IFG with respect to such Shares.

Section 4.3 Capitalization. As of the date hereof, the authorized capital stock of the Company consists of 150,000,000 shares of Common Stock, of which 98,656,448 shares of Common Stock are issued and outstanding. The remaining shares have been retained by the Company to satisfy the exercise of outstanding stock options, conversion of preferred securities and proposed equity financing. All of such outstanding shares of capital stock are, or upon issuance will be, duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable. No shares of capital stock of the Company are subject to preemptive rights or any other similar rights of the stockholders of the Company or any liens or encumbrances imposed through the actions or failure to act of the Company.

When issued, the Draw Down Shares and Warrant Shares shall be duly and validly issued, fully paid, and nonassessable. Neither the sales of the Draw Down Shares and Warrant Shares pursuant to, nor the Company's performance of its obligations under, this Agreement, the Warrants or the Registration Rights Agreement will (i) result in the creation or imposition of any liens, charges, claims or other encumbrances upon the Draw Down Shares, the Warrant Shares or any of the assets of the Company, or (ii) entitle the holders of outstanding shares of capital stock to preemptive or other rights to subscribe to or acquire shares of capital stock or other securities of the Company. The Draw Down Shares and Warrant Shares shall not subject IFG to personal liability by reason of the possession thereof.

Section 4.5 Acknowledgment of Dilution. The Company understands and acknowledges the potentially dilutive effect to the Common Stock upon the issuance of the Draw Down Shares pursuant to Draw Downs effected hereunder and upon issuance of the Warrant Shares upon exercise of or otherwise pursuant to the Warrants. The Company's directors and executive officers have studied and fully understand the nature of the Securities being sold hereunder. The Company further acknowledges that its obligation to issue Draw Down Shares and Warrant Shares in accordance with this Agreement and the Warrants is absolute and unconditional regardless of the dilutive effect that such issuance may have on the ownership interests of other stockholders of the Company. Taking the foregoing into account, the Company's Board of Directors has determined, in its good faith business judgment, that the issuance of the Securities hereunder and under the Warrants and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby are in the best interest of the Company and its stockholders.

Section 4.6 No Conflicts. The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement, the Registration Rights Agreement and the Warrants by the Company and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby (including, without limitation, the issuance and reservation for issuance, as applicable, of the Draw Down Shares and Warrant Shares) will not (i) conflict with or result in a violation of any provision of the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws or (ii) violate or conflict with, or result in a breach of any provision of, or constitute a default (or an event which with notice or lapse of time or both could become a default) under, or give to others any rights of termination, amendment, acceleration or cancellation of, any agreement, indenture, patent, patent license or instrument to which the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is a party, or (iii) result in a violation of any law, rule, regulation, order, judgment or decree (including federal and state securities laws and regulations and regulations of any self-regulatory organizations to which the Company or its securities are subject) applicable to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or by which any property or asset of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is bound or affected (except for such conflicts, defaults, terminations, amendments, accelerations, cancellations and violations as would not, individually or in the aggregate, have a Material Adverse Effect). Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries is in violation of its Certificate of Incorporation, Bylaws or other organizational documents and neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries is in material default (and no event has occurred which with notice or lapse of time or both could put the Company or any of its Subsidiaries in material default) under, and neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries has taken any action or failed to take any action that would give to others any rights of termination, amendment, acceleration or cancellation of, any agreement, indenture or instrument to which the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is a party or by which any property or assets of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is bound or affected, except for possible defaults as would not, individually or in the aggregate, have a Material Adverse Effect. The businesses of the Company and its Subsidiaries, if any, are not being conducted, and shall not be conducted so long as IFG owns any of the Securities, in violation of any law, ordinance or regulation of any governmental entity the violation of which would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. Except as specifically contemplated by this Agreement and as required under the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws, the Company is not required to obtain any consent, authorization or order of, or make any filing or registration with, any court, governmental agency, regulatory agency, self regulatory organization or stock market or any third party in order for it to execute, deliver or perform any of its obligations under this Agreement, the Registration Rights Agreement or the Warrants in accordance with the terms hereof or thereof or to issue and sell the Draw Down Shares and Warrants in accordance with the terms hereof and to issue the Warrant Shares upon exercise of or otherwise pursuant to the Warrants. Except as disclosed in Schedule 4.6, all consents, authorizations, orders, filings and registrations which the Company is required to obtain pursuant to the preceding sentence have been obtained or effected on or prior to the date hereof.

Section 5.4 Use of Proceeds. The Company shall use the proceeds from the sale of the Draw Down Shares and the Warrants and from the exercise of the Warrants for working capital and shall not, directly or indirectly, use such proceeds for any loan to or investment in any other corporation, partnership, enterprise or other person (except in connection with its currently existing direct or indirect Subsidiaries).

Section 5.5 Fees and Expenses. The Company shall pay (i) all reasonable fees and expenses related to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; provided, that the Company shall pay, by the Closing, all reasonable attorneys fees and expenses (exclusive of disbursements and out-of-pocket expenses and reasonably itemized) incurred by IFG up to $25,000.00 in connection with the preparation, negotiation, execution and delivery of this Agreement, (ii) all reasonable fees and expenses incurred by IFG in connection with any amendments, modifications or waivers of this Agreement or incurred in connection with the enforcement of this Agreement, including, without limitation, all reasonable attorneys fees and expenses, and (iii) all stamp or other similar taxes and duties levied in connection with issuance of the Shares pursuant hereto.

The Company shall not reduce the number of shares reserved for issuance upon exercise of the Warrants without the consent of IFG. The Company shall use its best efforts at all times to maintain the number of shares of Common Stock so reserved for issuance at no less than 1.2 times the number that is then actually issuable upon full exercise of the Warrants (based on the Exercise Price (as defined in the Warrants) of the Warrants in effect from time to time). If at any time the number of shares of Common Stock authorized and reserved for issuance is below the number of Warrant Shares issued and issuable upon exercise of or otherwise pursuant to the Warrants (based on the Exercise Price (as defined in the Warrants) of the Warrants in effect from time to time), the Company will promptly take all corporate action necessary to authorize and reserve a sufficient number of shares, including, without limitation, calling a special meeting of stockholders to authorize additional shares to meet the Company's obligations under this Section 5.7, in the case of an insufficient number of authorized shares, and using its best efforts to obtain stockholder approval of an increase in such authorized number of shares. Prior to the delivery of a Draw Down Notice, the Company will have reserved and the Company shall continue to reserve and keep available at all times thereafter, free of preemptive rights, a number of shares of Common Stock sufficient for the purpose of enabling the Company to satisfy its obligation to issue Draw Down Shares pursuant to such Draw Down Notice (assuming for such purposes that the Purchase Price applicable to such Draw Down is ninety-five percent (95%) of the Floor Price).

Section 5.8 Listing. The Company shall promptly secure the listing of the Draw Down Shares and Warrant Shares upon the Principal Market and each other national securities exchange or automated quotation system, if any, upon which shares of Common Stock are then listed (subject to official notice of issuance) and, so long as IFG owns any of the Securities, shall maintain, so long as any other shares of Common Stock shall be so listed, such listing of all Draw Down Shares and Warrant Shares from time to time issuable under this Agreement or upon exercise of the Warrants. The Company will obtain and, so long as IFG owns any of the Securities, maintain the listing and trading of its Common Stock on a Principal Market, and will comply in all respects with the Company's reporting, filing and other obligations under the bylaws or rules of such Principal Market and any other exchanges or automated quotation systems on which the Common Stock is then listed. The Company shall promptly provide to IFG copies of any notices it receives from the Principal Market and any other exchanges or automated quotation systems on which the Common Stock is then listed regarding the continued eligibility of the Common Stock for listing on such exchanges and quotation systems.

Section 5.9 No Integration. The Company shall not make any offers or sales of any security (other than the Securities) under circumstances that would require registration of the Securities being offered or sold hereunder under the Securities Act or cause the offering of Securities to be integrated with any other offering of securities by the Company for the purpose of any stockholder approval provision applicable to the Company or its securities.

The Draw Down Cancellation Notice shall be deemed delivered on (i) the Trading Day it is received by facsimile or otherwise by IFG if such notice is received prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, or (ii) the immediately succeeding Trading Day if it is received by facsimile or otherwise after 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on a Trading Day, or at any time on a day which is not a Trading Day. No Draw Down Cancellation Notice may be deemed delivered on a day that is not a Trading Day. "Draw Down Cancellation Date" shall be the date the Draw Down Cancellation Notice is deemed delivered pursuant to the preceding sentence.

(b) Effect of Draw Down Cancellation. If a Draw Down Cancellation Notice has been delivered to IFG after a Draw Down Date, the Draw Down Pricing Period for such Draw Down shall (except as provided in the proviso to the succeeding sentence) end on the Trading Day immediately preceding the Draw Down Cancellation Date. In such event, the Investment Amount relating to such Draw Down shall be reduced by one-twentieth (1/20) (or such other fraction based upon the agreed Draw Down Pricing Period) with respect to each Trading Day during the period beginning on and including the Draw Down Cancellation Date and ending on the last Trading Day of such Draw Down Pricing Period; provided, however, that, except as otherwise provided in Section 2.3(e) hereof, in the event that a Draw Down Cancellation Notice is deemed delivered on the Trading Day it is received by IFG pursuant to clause (i) of the second sentence of Section 6.4(a) above, then the Investment Amount allocable to such Trading Day shall be reduced by the difference between (x) one-twentieth (1/20) of the Investment Amount (or such other fraction based upon the agreed Draw Down Pricing Period) and (y) the product of (A) one-twentieth (1/20) of the Investment Amount (or such other fraction based upon the agreed Draw Down Pricing Period), multiplied by (B) the quotient of (i) the number of hours (or portions thereof) during which the Common Stock has actually traded on the Principal Market on such Trading Day (exclusive of any halts or suspensions of trading imposed generally on the Principal Market or specifically with respect to the Common Stock) prior to the actual time on which IFG received the Draw Down Cancellation Notice (as evidenced by the time and date set forth IFG’s facsimile copy thereof), divided by (ii) 6.5. Anytime a Draw Down Cancellation Notice is delivered IFG, such Draw Down shall remain effective as to the portion of the Investment Amount not canceled pursuant to the preceding sentence and IFG shall be entitled to use the Registration Statement and related prospectus for sales of the Shares issuable with respect to such non-canceled portion of the Investment Amount.
