---------------------------------------------------------------------   Disclosure announcement transmitted by euro adhoc.   The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement. ---------------------------------------------------------------------


For the year ended December 31, 2004 revenues reached Euro 210.7 million, a 6.4 percent increase over 2004.

The company increased its operating profit to Euro 21.2 million in 2004 compared with Euro 19.4 million 2003.

EBITDA for 2004 fell to Euro 103.7 million, a 3.0 percent decrease compared with 2003 EBITDA.

In 2004, EBITDA and operating profit was negatively impacted by the high-level of Euro 9.5 million professional fees, related to the ongoing efforts to achieve a financial restructuring of the Company. Of the Euro 9.5 million, Euro 6.5 million relates to the indemnification by PrimaCom, under the Senior and Second Secured Facility agreements, of costs incurred by the respective bank groups for their legal and accounting advice, together with the corresponding costs of PrimaCom’s own lawyers. The remaining Euro 3.0 million is in respect of professional fees related to the special investigation mandated by shareholders at the Company’s AGM in June 2004, the costs of a special audit regarding over-indebtedness, and contract release costs resulting from a change of satellite provider.

Net loss for 2004 was Euro 113.5 million compared with a net loss of Euro 118.1 million 2003.

Revenue generating units increased by 21,556 or 1.5 per cent from 1,405,862 at December 31, 2003 to 1,427,418 at December 31, 2004, with a decline in analog customers of 2.4 per cent being offset by substantial growth in both Internet and telephony customers.

PrimaCom continues to focus on revenue improvements, cost reduction management and profitability improvements and actively pursues all opportunities to reorganise its debt and equity structure.
