Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - May 9, 2006

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

May 9, 2006

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest.

Today we are publishing a very special edition of the Digest. We're going to have lots of details from the Vonage IPO Prospectus. I do this because as many of you already know, Vonage yesterday announced the launch of a Directed Share Program as part of its proposed initial public offering (IPO) of common stock, which will allow eligible customers to purchase shares at the IPO price. In fact, since we first posted this news yesterday, the press release that we posted has received well over 2,000 reads.

First, let us go to the basic facts:

To be eligible to purchase common stock at the IPO price in the Vonage IPO, customers must meet strict eligibility criteria. Vonage customers may be eligible to participate if they meet all of the following criteria: -- they opened accounts with Vonage America on or prior to December 15, 2005, and -- maintained their accounts in good standing through February 1, 2006, and -- are a U.S. citizen, and -- reside in the U.S. when the offering closes, and -- have a valid social security number.

I should also point out that we have a Vonage Forum thread already set up to discuss the subject. It's called The Vonage IPO Thread.

Now, let us get into the meat of what this Vonage Directed Share Program is about.

Vonage Directed Share Program

The specifics of Vonage's Directed Share Program is contained in a Vonage Prospectus that you get when you visit and go through a brief process. If you meet the criteria asked about in this process, you get access to the Prospectus that describes the Program, as well as the Vonage IPO itself.

Here's what Vonage says in its Prospectus about the Directed Share Programs many of you Vonage Forum Members are showing so much initial interest in. I wrote the subheads, but the rest of the language is Vonage's.

We have requested that the underwriters reserve up to 13.5% of the common stock offered in this prospectus for sale to certain of our customers at the initial public offering price in the Vonage Customer Directed Share Program. The Vonage Customer Directed Share Program will be centrally administered through the program website at A Vonage customer may be eligible to participate in the Vonage Customer Directed Share Program if he or she meets all of the following criteria:

  • The customer opened an account directly with Vonage America on or prior to December 15, 2005. 
  • The customer must have opened an account with Vonage America and not through a third-party wholesaler.
  • The customer maintained the Vonage account in good standing through February 1, 2006.
  • The customer is a U.S. citizen.
  • The customer resides in the United States as of the date of the consummation of this offering.
  • The customer is a natural person and has a valid U.S. social security number. No entities are eligible to participate.

You Have To Open A Brokerage Account

In order to participate in the Vonage Customer Directed Share Program, the customer also must open a limited purpose brokerage account at either Smith Barney, a division of Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Deutsche Bank Alex. Brown, a division of Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., or UBS Financial Services Inc. Eligible customers will be permitted to purchase shares of our common stock in the Vonage Customer Directed Share Program only through a limited purpose brokerage account at one of these financial institutions.

Other conditions to participation also may apply.

How Much Do I Need To Buy?

Eligible customers who choose to participate in the Vonage Customer Directed Share Program must submit conditional offers to purchase at least 100 and no more than 5,000 shares. In the event that eligible customers submit valid conditional offers for more shares than have been reserved for allocation in the Vonage Customer Directed Share Program, we will allocate shares for purchase by eligible customers as follows:

  1. We will first attempt to allocate shares to all customers who submitted a valid conditional offer by reducing each customer's conditional offer by a percentage and allocating shares to each customer in the amount of his or her reduced conditional offer.
  2. Each customer's conditional offer will be reduced by the same percentage, rounded up to the nearest 100 shares. No conditional offer will be reduced, however, to below 100 shares as a result of this pro rata reduction.
  3. We will reduce the conditional offers by the lowest percentage that will allow all conditional offers, as reduced and after rounding, to be filled. We will not, however, apply a pro rata reduction that exceeds 75%.
  4. In the event that not all of the conditional offers, as reduced by 75% and after rounding, can be filled, the following allocation model will be used: Conditional offers, as reduced by 75% and after rounding, will be filled in size order, with the largest conditional offers filled first. For example, any conditional offers for 5,000 shares would be reduced by 75% and rounded up to the nearest 100 shares, resulting in conditional offers for 1,300 shares. Each of these conditional offers would be filled with 1,300 shares prior to filling any conditional offers for fewer shares.

In the event that not all of the conditional offers of a particular size can be filled, but there remain shares available for allocation, conditional offers will be filled within the particular size by lottery.

Can I Ask Vonage For More Information?

Our employees do not have any additional information and have been instructed not to discuss either the initial public offering or the Vonage Customer Directed Share Program. Therefore, you should not call us about the initial public offering or the Vonage Customer Directed Share Program. As it becomes available, further information about how to participate in the Vonage Customer Directed Share Program will be available only at (888) 830-1790 or

So What Else Is In The Prospectus?

If you are able to download the prospectus, you'll get a good idea of what's in it by reading the table of contents.

I'll reproduce the table of contents now. The number next to each subject refers to the page on the prospectus where that topic begins:

  • Prospectus Summary 1

  • Use of Proceeds 24

Once again, I would like to point out that we have a Vonage Forum thread already set up to discuss the subject. It's called The Vonage IPO Thread

Given that we have devoted this entire edition of the Vonage Forum Digest to the Vonage Directed Share Program and the Vonage prospectus and IPO, this is a good place for me to point out once again that this Site is exclusively owned & operated by 4Sight Media LLC and is no way endorsed, sponsored, provided, owned or otherwise controlled by Vonage.

As we close out today's Digest, I'd like to remind you once again about some more options you have to receive the Vonage Voip Forum Digest every day. If you go to this page:, you will see a list of RSS Newsreaders from which with one or two clicks, you'll be able to get your Digest delivered directly to your Newsreader each morning. The Newsreaders we've linked to on that page include such reliable and trusted services as Bloglines, Feedster, My Yahoo!, Newsgator and Feedburner. I am open to add others, just contact me with the info of the Newsreader.

That's what's hot about Vonage today. We'll be back on Wednesday morning with our next regular edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest,!!
