Filing Date: July 26, 2001

According to the Company’s FORM 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2004, the Company and certain of its officers/directors were named as defendants in several purported shareholder class action lawsuits commenced in 2001. The lawsuits allege, among other things, that, in connection with the Company’s public offerings of securities, its Prospectus did not disclose certain alleged practices involving its underwriters and their customers. ITXC is one of hundreds of companies named in substantially identical lawsuits. Management believes that ITXC and its officers/directors did not engage in any improper or illegal conduct. All of these cases have been consolidated for pretrial purposes before Judge Scheindlin in the Southern District of New York, who refused to dismiss the cases in an opinion issued in February 2003. All of the individual defendants who had been named as defendants in the Company’s case have now been dismissed from the proceeding without prejudice, pursuant to a stipulation with the plaintiffs. Neither the individual defendants nor the Company nor its insurers paid any consideration for these dismissals. The parties have negotiated a settlement entirely funded by the directors and officers’ insurance carriers, and it is anticipated that this proposed settlement will be submitted to the Court for approval in the near future. Under the terms of the proposed settlement, neither the Company nor individual defendants will have either future liability or expenses in connection with the litigation, except for a limited obligation to cooperate in discovery in the plaintiffs’ continuing cases against the underwriters.

The complaint alleges violations of Sections 11, 12(a)(2) and 15 of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder. On or about September 27, 1999, ITXC commenced an initial public offering of 6,250,000 of its shares of common stock at an offering price of $12 per share (the ``ITXC IPO''). In connection therewith, ITXC filed a registration statement, which incorporated a prospectus (the ``Prospectus''), with the SEC. The complaint further alleges that the Prospectus was materially false and misleading because it failed to disclose, among other things, that: (i) the Underwriter Defendants had solicited and received excessive and undisclosed commissions from certain investors in exchange for which the Underwriter Defendants allocated to those investors material portions of the restricted number of ITXC shares issued in connection with the ITXC IPO; and (ii) the Underwriter Defendants had entered into agreements with customers whereby they agreed to allocate ITXC shares to those customers in the ITXC IPO in exchange for which the customers agreed to purchase additional ITXC shares in the aftermarket at pre-determined prices.

About the Company & Securities Data


"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.

In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
