HCPT, a Delaware limited liability company, was formed for the purposes of the proposed
transaction with no other business interests. Hale Capital Partners, LP (HCP),3 a Delaware limited

HFP are not affiliated with any other telecommunications company that holds Commission
authorizations. Hale Fund Management, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, is the Manager of
EREF-TELA, LLC (EREF), a Delaware limited liability company, and CBG-TELA, LLC (CBG), also a
Delaware limited liability company. Hale Fund Management LLC, a Delaware limited liability company,
is the Managing Member of HCPT, EREF, CBG, and exercises control.4 Martin M. Hale, Jr., a U.S.
citizen, is the sole owner of Hale Fund Management, LLC and the Managing Member and sole owner of
Hale Fund Partners, LLC.
On June 30, 2010, Telanetix entered into a securities purchase agreement (Purchase Agreement)
with (i) EREF, (ii) HCPT and (iii) CBG. The stock allocation resulted in the following entities holding a
greater than ten percent interest in Telanetix: HCPT (55%), EREF (11.8%), and CBG (15.7%). Telanetix
issued notes and common stock to the purchasers at the closing of the transactions on July 2, 2010.
Telanetix issued the balance of the shares of common stock following an amendment to its certificate of
incorporation on September 2, 2010. As a result of this transaction, HCPT acquired direct control of
Telanetix and indirect control of ACC.
Applicants assert that the proposed transaction is entitled to presumptive streamlined treatment
under section 63.03(b)(2)(i) of the Commission’s rules and that a grant of the application will serve the
public interest, convenience, and necessity.5
