Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

2003 Stock Option and Stock Incentive Plan

On November 28, 2012, the Board of Directors of Neutral Tandem, Inc. d/b/a Inteliquent (the "Company") approved Amendment No. 4 (the "Amendment") to the Neutral Tandem, Inc. 2003 Stock Option and Stock Incentive Plan (the "2003 Plan") in connection with the Company's recently paid special one-time cash dividend of $3.00 per share of common stock (the "Special Dividend"). The Amendment provides that, in order to prevent an extraordinary cash dividend like the Special Dividend from diluting the rights of optionholders, the Company's Compensation Committee shall have the discretion to reduce the exercise price of outstanding options so long as any such adjustment does not increase the intrinsic value of any such option, as measured prior to the ex-dividend date of such extraordinary cash dividend. The Amendment did not require stockholder approval under the 2003 Plan's terms, applicable law or NASDAQ rules, and therefore is effective immediately.

To compensate holders of outstanding options for the reduction in the Company's stock price that resulted from the payment of the Special Dividend, the Company's Compensation Committee approved on November 28, 2012 (i) an adjustment to the exercise price of outstanding options, subject to the limitations of
Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code, and (ii) the issuance of shares of restricted stock (available for issuance under the Neutral Tandem, Inc. Amended and Restated 2007 Long Term Equity Incentive Plan (the "2007 Plan")) to holders of outstanding options with exercise prices that could not be fully adjusted to account for the Special Dividend payment because of the limitations of
Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code. The effect of the exercise price adjustment and the issuance of restricted stock, taken together, is to provide each optionholder with the same economic value after the time that the Company's common stock began trading ex-dividend as such optionholder had immediately prior to such time. As a result of these adjustments, the exercise price of the 206,333 outstanding options under the 2003 Plan was reduced by an average of $1.65 per option, and the Company issued 125,754 shares of restricted stock under the 2007 Plan to make optionholders whole.

Amended and Restated 2007 Long Term Equity Incentive Plan

In connection with the Special Dividend, all outstanding options issued pursuant to the 2007 Plan were modified on November 28, 2012 as is mandated by antidilutive provisions contained in the 2007 Plan. The modifications ensured that the intrinsic value of outstanding options did not decline due to the reduction in the Company's stock price that resulted from the payment of the Special Dividend. As a result of these mandatory adjustments, the exercise price for each of the 2,709,500 outstanding options under the 2007 Plan was reduced by $3.00 (the amount of the Special Dividend).
