Under the terms of the indenture governing EarthLink's outstanding 3.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2026 (the "Notes"), EarthLink's calling of the Notes for redemption requires an adjustment to the conversion rate for the Notes as a result of the $0.05 dividend paid by EarthLink on September 20, 2011, which adjustment will be effective October 14, 2011.
