                                      Fifth
 
     Section 1. Number of Directors. The number of Directors shall not be less
than eight nor more than 20 as may be determined from time to time by the
affirmative vote of the majority of the Board of Directors.
 
     Section 2. Election of Directors. (a) Subject to clause (b) below, the
holders of Corporation Common Stock shall have the right to elect that number of
Directors equal to the excess of (x) the total number of Directors over (y) the
number of Directors, if any, that the holders of Preferred Stock, voting
separately by class or series, are entitled to elect in accordance with the
provisions of ARTICLE SIXTH of these Articles of Incorporation.
 
     (b) So long as Section 310 remains in effect, under no circumstances shall
an Alien Director elected by the holders of Corporation Common Stock be
qualified to serve as a Director if the number of Aliens who would then be
serving as members of the Board of Directors, including such elected Alien,
would constitute more than the maximum number of Aliens permitted by Section 310
on the Board of Directors.
 
     (c) The Directors (other than any Directors elected by the holders of any
one or more classes or series of Preferred Stock having the right, voting
separately by class or series, to elect Directors) shall be divided into three
classes, designated Class I, Class II and Class III, with the term of office of
one class expiring each year. The number of Class I, Class II and Class III
Directors shall consist, as nearly as practicable, of one third of the total
number of Directors (other than any Directors elected by the holders of any one
or more classes or series of Preferred Stock having the right, voting separately
by class or series, to elect Directors). At each annual meeting of stockholders
of this Corporation, successors to the class of Directors whose term expires at
that annual meeting shall be elected for a three-year term.
 
     (d) Whenever the holders of any one or more classes or series of Preferred
Stock shall have the right, voting separately by class or series, to elect
Directors at an annual or special meeting of stockholders, the election, term of
office, filling of vacancies and other features of such directorships shall be
governed by the terms of these Articles of Incorporation applicable thereto, and
such Directors so elected shall not be divided into classes pursuant to this
ARTICLE FIFTH unless expressly provided by such terms.

than any Directors elected by the holders of any one or more classes or series
of Preferred Stock having the right, voting separately by class or series, to
 
 
 
<PAGE>
 
 
elect Directors) is changed, any increase or decrease shall be apportioned among
the classes so as to maintain the number of Directors in each class as nearly
equal as possible.
 
     Section 4. Term of Office. (a) Each Director shall be elected for a
three-year term. A Director shall hold office until the annual meeting for the
year in which his term expires and until his successor shall be elected and
shall qualify to serve, subject to prior death, resignation, retirement,
disqualification or removal from office.
 
     (b) Any vacancy on the Board of Directors (whether resulting from an
increase in the total number of Directors, the departure of one of the Directors
or otherwise) may be filled by the affirmative vote of a majority of the
Directors elected by the same class or classes of stockholders which would be
entitled to elect the Director who would fill such vacancy if the annual meeting
of stockholders of this Corporation were held on the date on which such vacancy
occurred, provided that at any time when there is only one such Director so
elected and then serving, such Director may fill such vacancy and, provided
further, that at any time when there are no such Directors then serving, the
stockholders of the class or classes entitled to elect the Director who will
fill such vacancy shall have the right to fill such vacancy.
 
     (c) Any additional Director of any class elected to fill a vacancy
resulting from an increase in the number of Directors of such class shall hold
office for a term that shall coincide with the remaining term of the Directors
of that class, but in no case will a decrease in the number of Directors shorten
the term of any incumbent Director. Any Director elected to fill a vacancy not
resulting from an increase in the number of Directors shall have the same
remaining term as that of his predecessor.
 
     Section 5. Rights, Powers, Duties, Rules and Procedures; Amendment of
Bylaws.
 
     (a) Except to the extent prohibited by law or as set forth in these
Articles of Incorporation or the Bylaws, the Board of Directors shall have the

rights, powers, duties, rules and procedures that from time to time shall govern
the Board of Directors and each of its members, including, without limitation,
the vote required for any action by the Board of Directors, and that from time
to time shall affect the Directors' power to manage the business and affairs of
this Corporation. Except to the extent required by law or as set forth in these
Articles of Incorporation or the Bylaws, no Bylaw shall be adopted by
stockholders which shall impair or impede the implementation of the foregoing.
 
     (b) The Board of Directors is expressly authorized and empowered, in the
manner provided in the Bylaws of this Corporation, to adopt, amend and repeal
the Bylaws of this Corporation in any respect to the full extent permitted by
the General Corporation Code not inconsistent with the laws of the General
Corporation Code or with these Articles of Incorporation, provided that prior to
November 23, 2002, ARTICLE IV, SECTION 13 of the Bylaws may not be amended,
altered, repealed, superseded or made inoperative or ineffective by adoption of
other provisions to the Bylaws or these Articles of Incorporation any such
action, a "CP Covered Bylaws Amendment") without the affirmative vote of the
holders of record of (i) a majority of the votes represented by the shares of
PCS Stock and Class A Common Stock then outstanding, voting together as a single
class in accordance with ARTICLE SIXTH, Section 3.2(d), and (ii) a majority of
the votes represented by the shares of Corporation Common Stock, voting together
as a single class, at any annual or special meeting of stockholders, the notice
of which shall have specified or summarized the proposed CP Covered Bylaws
Amendment.
 
     Section 6. Removal. A Director (other than a Director elected by the
holders of any class or series of Preferred Stock having the right, voting
separately by class or series, to elect Directors) may be removed only for
cause. No Director so removed may be reinstated for so long as the cause for

related to shares of Series 1 PCS Stock that were not so reconverted shall be
deemed for any purpose under these Articles of Incorporation to have been
converted into Series 1 PCS Stock, pursuant to this subparagraph (q) and the
Series 2 PCS Stock so reconverted shall be deemed to have been at all times
outstanding shares of Series 2 PCS Stock, provided, that if the Series 2 PCS

          Fair Value of the Net Proceeds of such Disposition (such aggregate
          amount to be allocated to shares of Series 1 PCS Stock, Series 2 PCS

          each such series outstanding to the other series (so that the amount
          of consideration paid for the redemption of each share of Series 1 PCS
          Stock, Series 2 PCS Stock and Series 3 PCS Stock is the same)); or
 
                    (ii) subject to the last sentence of this paragraph (A), if
          such Disposition involves substantially all (but not all) of the
          properties and assets attributed to the PCS Group, redeem as of the
          Redemption Date provided by Section 7.4(D) the number of whole shares
          of PCS Stock (which may be all of such shares outstanding) as have in
          the aggregate an average Market Value during the period of ten
          consecutive Trading Days beginning on the sixteenth Trading Day
          immediately succeeding the PCS Group Disposition Date closest to the
          product of the Outstanding PCS Fraction as of the date such shares are
          selected for redemption multiplied by the Fair Value as of the PCS
          Group Disposition Date of the Net Proceeds of such Disposition, in
          exchange for cash and/or securities (other than Corporation Common
          Stock or other common equity securities of the Corporation) or other
          property having a Fair Value in the aggregate equal to such product
          (such aggregate amount to be allocated to shares of Series 1 PCS

     PCS Stock shall receive Voting Securities with Voting Power equivalent on a
     per share basis to such shares received by holders of Series 1 PCS Stock;
 
          (4) if the Corporation pays a dividend to the holders of shares of PCS
     Stock in accordance with Section 7.1(A)(1)(a), then the Corporation will

     of Class A Common Stock;
 
          (5) if the Corporation redeems all outstanding shares of PCS Stock in
     accordance with Section 7.1(A)(1)(b)(i), then the Corporation will pay an
     aggregate amount to the holders of Old Class A Common Stock equivalent on a
     Per Class A PCS Share Basis to the per share redemption amount paid in
     accordance with Section 7.1(A)(1)(b)(i) in respect of the total Number Of
     Shares Issuable With Respect To The Old Class A Equity Interest In The PCS

     immediately above but only in respect of the same proportion of the Number
     Of Shares Issuable With Respect To The Old Class A Equity Interest In The
     PCS Group as the PCS Stock redeemed in accordance with Section
     7.1(A)(7)(b)(ii); and
 
 
                                       23

     Shares Issuable With Respect To The Old Class A Equity Interest In The FON
     Group, such conversion to be on the same basis as set forth in Section
     7.1(A)(2).
 
     (C) If the payment of the dividend or the redemption price with respect to

a Conversion Date (determined as provided by Section 7.4(E) hereof) prior to the
first anniversary of the payment of such dividend or redemption price, into a
number of fully paid and nonassessable shares of Series 1 FON Stock, Series 2
FON Stock and Series 3 FON Stock, respectively (or, if the Series 1 FON Stock is
not Publicly Traded at such time and shares of any other class or series of
common stock of the Corporation (other than PCS Stock) are then Publicly Traded,
of such other class or series of common stock as has the largest Total Market
Capitalization as of the close of business on the Trading Day immediately
preceding the date of the notice of such conversion required by Section 7.4(E))

Interest In The FON Group.
 
     (D) At any time following November 23, 2001, the Board of Directors may
convert each outstanding share of Series 1 PCS Stock, Series 2 PCS Stock and
Series 3 PCS Stock, as of the Conversion Date provided by Section 7.4(E), into

any) as the Board of Directors determines to be fair to holders of the PCS
Stock, taken as a separate class, and holders of FON Stock, taken as a separate
class, provided, that upon such conversion, the Number Of Shares Issuable With
Respect To The Old Class A Equity Interest In The PCS Group will convert, on the

accordance with the number of shares of PCS Stock held by each on such
Redemption Date, each of which shares of common stock of such PCS Group
Subsidiary shall be, upon such delivery, fully paid and nonassessable; provided,
however, that
 
          (i) no such redemption pursuant to this Section 7.2 may occur prior to
     November 23, 2000 unless such redemption is approved by the affirmative

that a holder of such Convertible Securities shall be entitled to receive shares
of common stock upon such conversion only if such holder properly converts,
exchanges or exercises such Convertible Securities on or prior to such
Conversion Date and a statement as to what, if anything, such holder will be
entitled to receive pursuant to the terms of such Convertible Securities or, if
applicable, this Section 7.4 if such holder thereafter converts, exchanges or
exercises such Convertible Securities. Such notice shall be sent by first-class
mail, postage prepaid, to each such holder at such holder's address as the same
appears on the transfer books of the Corporation.
 
     (F) If the Corporation determines to redeem shares of PCS Stock pursuant to
Section 7.2, the Corporation shall cause notice to be given to each holder of
shares of PCS Stock to be redeemed, and to each holder of Class A Common Stock
and Convertible Securities that are convertible into or exchangeable or
exercisable for shares of such class of PCS Stock (unless alternate provision
for such notice to the holders of such Convertible Securities is made pursuant
to the terms of such Convertible Securities), setting forth (1) a statement that
all shares of PCS Stock outstanding on the Redemption Date shall be redeemed in
exchange for shares of common stock of the PCS Group Subsidiary, (2) the

to be surrendered for delivery of certificates for shares of the PCS Group
Subsidiaries, (5) a statement to the effect that, subject to paragraph (I) of
this Section 7.4, dividends on such shares of PCS Stock shall cease to be paid
as of such Redemption Date, (6) the number of shares of PCS Stock outstanding
and the number of shares of PCS Stock into or for which outstanding Convertible
Securities are then convertible, exchangeable or exercisable and the conversion,
exchange or exercise price thereof and (7) in the case of notice to holders of

Securities shall be entitled to receive shares of common stock of the PCS Group
Subsidiary upon redemption only if such holder properly converts, exchanges or
exercises such Convertible Securities on or prior to the Redemption Date and a
statement as to what, if anything, such holder will be entitled to receive
pursuant to the terms of such Convertible Securities or, if applicable, this
Section 7 if such holder thereafter converts, exchanges or exercises such
Convertible Securities. Such notice shall be sent by first-class mail, postage
prepaid, not less than 30 Trading Days nor more than 45 Trading Days prior to
the Redemption Date to each such holder at such holder's address as the same
appears on the transfer books of the Corporation. If any shares of Series 2 PCS
Stock or Series 3 PCS Stock are outstanding immediately prior to the Redemption
Date, then the notice provided to each holder of Series 2 PCS Stock or Series 3
PCS Stock, as the case may be, pursuant to this Section 7.4(F) will also
indicate that such holders of shares of Series 2 PCS Stock and Series 3 PCS
Stock outstanding immediately prior to the Redemption Date shall receive on a
 
 
                                       27
 
<PAGE>
 
per share basis, pursuant to such redemption, shares of common stock of such PCS
Group Subsidiary with Voting Power equivalent to such shares received by holders
of Series 1 PCS Stock.
 
     (G) If less than all of the outstanding shares of PCS Stock are to be
redeemed pursuant to Section 7.1(A)(1), then the shares to be redeemed by the
Corporation shall be selected from among the holders of shares of PCS Stock
outstanding at the close of business on the record date for such redemption on a
pro rata basis among each class or series of PCS Stock (including pro rata among
all holders of Series 2 PCS Stock and Series 3 PCS Stock) or, if Series 2 PCS
Stock is no longer outstanding, by lot or such other method as may be determined
by the Board of Directors of the Corporation to be equitable.
 
     (H) The Corporation shall not be required to issue or deliver fractional
shares of any capital stock or of any other securities to any holder of PCS
Stock upon any conversion, redemption, dividend or other distribution pursuant
to this Section 7. If more than one share of PCS Stock shall be held at the same
time by the same holder, the Corporation may aggregate the number of shares of
any capital stock that shall be issuable or any other securities or property
that shall be distributable to such holder upon any conversion, redemption,
dividend or other distribution (including any fractional shares). If there are
fractional shares of any capital stock or of any other securities remaining to
be issued or distributed to the holders of PCS Stock, the Corporation shall, if
such fractional shares are not issued or distributed to the holder, pay cash in
respect of such fractional shares in an amount equal to the Fair Value thereof
on the fifth Trading Day prior to the date such payment is to be made (without
interest). For purposes of the preceding sentence only, "Fair Value" of any
fractional share means (A) in the case of any fraction of a share of capital
stock of the Corporation, the product of such fraction and the Market Value of
one share of such capital stock and (B) in the case of any other fractional
security, such value as is determined by the Board of Directors.
 
     (I) No adjustments in respect of dividends shall be made upon the
conversion or redemption of any shares of PCS Stock; provided, however, that if
the Conversion Date or Redemption Date, as the case may be, with respect to any
shares of PCS Stock shall be subsequent to the record date for the payment of a
dividend or other distribution thereon or with respect thereto, the holders of
such shares of PCS Stock at the close of business on such record date shall be
entitled to receive the dividend or other distribution payable on or with
respect to such shares on the date set for payment of such dividend or other
distribution, in each case without interest, notwithstanding the subsequent
conversion or redemption of such shares.
 
     (J) Before any holder of PCS Stock shall be entitled to receive any cash
payment and/or certificates or instruments representing shares of any capital
stock and/or other securities or property to be distributed to such holder with
respect to such shares of PCS Stock pursuant to this Section 7, such holder
shall surrender at such place as the Corporation shall specify certificates for
such shares of PCS Stock, properly endorsed or assigned for transfer (unless the
Corporation shall waive such requirement). The Corporation shall as soon as
practicable after receipt of certificates representing such shares of PCS Stock
deliver to the person for whose account such shares of PCS Stock were so
surrendered, or to such person's nominee or nominees, the cash and/or the
certificates or instruments representing the number of whole shares of the kind
of capital stock and/or other securities or property to which such person shall
be entitled as aforesaid, together with any payment in respect of fractional
shares contemplated by Section 7.4(H), in each case without interest. If less
than all of the shares of PCS Stock represented by any one certificate are to be
redeemed or converted, then the Corporation shall issue and deliver a new
certificate for the shares of PCS Stock not redeemed.
 
     (K) From and after any applicable Conversion Date or Redemption Date, as
the case may be, all rights of a holder of shares of PCS Stock that were
converted or redeemed shall cease except for the right, upon surrender of the
certificates representing such shares of PCS Stock as required by Section
7.4(J), to receive the cash and/or the certificates or instruments representing
shares of the kind of capital stock and/or other securities or property for
which such shares were converted or redeemed, together with any payment in
respect of fractional shares contemplated by Section 7.4(H) and rights to
dividends as provided in Section 7.4(I), in each case without interest. Subject
to the next sentence, any holder of a certificate that immediately prior to the
applicable Conversion Date or Redemption Date represented shares of PCS Stock
shall not be entitled to receive any dividend or other distribution or interest
payment with respect to shares of any kind of capital stock or other security or
instrument for which PCS Stock was converted or redeemed until the surrender as
required by this Section 7 of such certificate in exchange for a certificate or
certificates or instrument or instruments representing such capital stock or
other security. Upon such surrender, there shall be paid to the holder the
amount of any dividends or other distributions (without interest) which
theretofore became payable on any class of capital stock of the Corporation as
of a record date after the Conversion Date or Redemption Date, but that were not
paid by reason of the foregoing, with respect to the number of whole shares of
the kind of capital stock
 
 
                                       28
 
<PAGE>
 
represented by the certificate or certificates issued upon such surrender. From
and after a Conversion Date or Redemption Date, the Corporation shall, however,
be entitled to treat the certificates for PCS Stock that have not yet been
surrendered for conversion or redemption as evidencing the ownership of the
number of whole shares of the kind or kinds of capital stock of the Corporation
for which the shares of PCS Stock represented by such certificates shall have
been converted or redeemed, notwithstanding the failure to surrender such
certificates.
 
     (L) The Corporation shall pay any and all documentary, stamp or similar
issue or transfer taxes that may be payable in respect of the issuance or
delivery of any shares of capital stock and/or other securities upon conversion
or redemption of shares of PCS Stock pursuant to this Section 7. The Corporation
shall not, however, be required to pay any tax that may be payable in respect of
any transfer involved in the issuance or delivery of any shares of capital stock
and/or other securities in a name other than that in which the shares of PCS
Stock so converted or redeemed were registered, and no such issuance or delivery
shall be made unless and until the person requesting such issuance or delivery
has paid to the Corporation the amount of any such tax or has established to the
satisfaction of the Corporation that such tax has been paid.
 
     (M) Neither the failure to mail any notice required by this Section 7.4 to
any particular holder of PCS Stock or of Convertible Securities nor any defect
therein shall affect the sufficiency of any notice given to any other holder of
outstanding shares of PCS Stock or of Convertible Securities or the validity of
any such conversion or redemption.
 
     (N) The Board of Directors may establish such rules and requirements to
facilitate the effectuation of the transactions contemplated by this Section 7
as the Board of Directors shall determine to be appropriate.
 
     (O) If notices to Class A Holders are made pursuant to this Section 7, then
the Corporation will make such notices in compliance with the provisions of
Section 11 of ARTICLE SIXTH as well as with the provisions of this Section 7.
 
     7.5 Automatic Conversion of Series 2 PCS Stock and Series 2 FON Stock.
 
     (a) Below One Percent Voting Power. If the total number of Converted Votes
represented by the aggregate number of issued and outstanding shares of Series 2
PCS Stock or Series 2 FON Stock, as the case may be, is below one percent of the
outstanding Voting Power of the Corporation for more than 90 consecutive days,
then (i) the Corporation shall notify FT and DT, in accordance with ARTICLE
SIXTH, Section 11, of the date on which such conversion will occur as soon as
practicable following the date on which such 90-day period ends (the "Conversion
Trigger Date") but in no event later than ten Business Days after the Conversion
Trigger Date and (ii) each outstanding share of Series 2 PCS Stock or Series 2
FON Stock will automatically convert (without the payment of any consideration)
into one duly issued, fully paid and nonassessable share of Series 1 PCS Stock
or Series 1 FON Stock, respectively, such conversion to take place on the 90th
day following the Conversion Trigger Date.
 
     (b) Certain Transfers. Upon any Transfer of shares of Series 2 PCS Stock or
Series 2 FON Stock, as the case may be (other than a Transfer to a Cable Holder)
each such share so Transferred shall automatically convert (without the payment
of any consideration) into one duly issued, fully paid and nonassessable share
of Series 1 PCS Stock or Series 1 FON Stock, respectively, as of the date of
such Transfer.
 
     (c) Notice of Automatic Conversion; Exchange of Stock Certificates; Effect
of Automatic Conversion of All Series 2 PCS Stock, etc.
 
          (i) In addition to the notice required in Section 7.5(a), as soon as
     practicable after a conversion of shares of Series 2 PCS Stock (or, if
     applicable, Series 2 FON Stock) into shares of Series 1 PCS Stock (or, if
     applicable, Series 1 FON Stock), pursuant to this Section 7, the
     Corporation shall notify FT and DT, in accordance with ARTICLE SIXTH,
     Section 11, of the number of shares so converted and the date on which such
     conversion occurred.
 
          (ii) Immediately upon the conversion of shares of Series 2 PCS Stock
     (or, if applicable, Series 2 FON Stock) into shares of Series 1 PCS Stock
     (or, if applicable, Series 1 FON Stock), pursuant to this Section 7 (such
     shares so converted hereinafter referred to as the "Converted Series
     Shares"), the rights of the holders of such Converted Series Shares, as
     such, shall cease and the holders thereof shall be treated for all purposes
     as having become the record owners of the shares of Series 1 PCS Stock or
     Series 1 FON Stock, as the case may
 
 
                                       29
 
<PAGE>
 
     be, issuable upon such conversion (the "Newly Issued Shares"), provided
     that such Persons shall be entitled to receive when paid any dividends
     declared on the Converted Series Shares as of a record date preceding the
     time the Converted Series Shares were converted (the "Series Conversion
     Time") and unpaid as of the Series Conversion Time. If the stock transfer
     books of this Corporation shall be closed at the Series Conversion Time,
     such Person or Persons shall be deemed to have become such holder or
     holders of record of the Newly Issued Shares at the opening of business on
     the next succeeding day on which such stock transfer books are open.
 
          (iii) As promptly as practicable after the Series Conversion Time,
     upon the delivery to this Corporation of the certificates formerly
     representing Converted Series Shares, this Corporation shall deliver or
     cause to be delivered, to or upon the written order of the record holder of
     such certificates, a certificate or certificates representing the number of
     duly issued, fully paid and nonassessable Newly Issued Shares into which
     the Converted Series Shares formerly represented by such certificates have
     been converted in accordance with the provisions of this Section 7.5.
 
          (iv) This Corporation shall pay all United States federal, state or
     local documentary, stamp or similar issue or transfer taxes payable in
     respect of the issue or delivery of Newly Issued Shares upon the conversion
     of Converted Series Shares pursuant to this Section 7.5, provided that this
     Corporation shall not be required to pay any tax which may be payable in
     respect of any registration of Transfer involved in the issue or delivery
     of Newly Issued Shares in a name other than that of the registered holder
     of shares converted or to be converted, and no such issue or delivery shall
     be made unless and until the person requesting such issue has paid to this
     Corporation the amount of any such tax or has established, to the
     satisfaction of this Corporation, that such tax has been paid.
 
          (v) This Corporation shall at all times reserve and keep available,
     out of the aggregate of its authorized but unissued Series 1 PCS Stock,
     authorized but unissued Series 1 FON Stock, issued Series 1 PCS Stock held
     in its treasury and issued Series 1 FON Stock held in its treasury, for the
     purpose of effecting the conversion of the Series 2 PCS Stock or Series 2
     FON Stock, as the case may be, contemplated hereby, the full number of
     shares of Series 1 PCS Stock and Series 1 FON Stock then deliverable upon
     the conversion of all outstanding shares of Series 2 PCS Stock or Series 2
     FON Stock, as the case may be, and the full number of shares of Series 2
     PCS Stock the Cable Holders are permitted to acquire under the
     Restructuring Agreement and the Cable Holder Standstill Agreements.
 
     (d) Temporary Voting Power Adjustment for Class A Holders. If any
conversions of shares of Series 2 PCS Stock or Series 2 FON Stock into shares of
Series 1 PCS Stock or Series 1 FON Stock, respectively, pursuant to this Section
7.5, or any increases in the per share vote of other Voting Securities of the
Corporation upon a Transfer of such Voting Securities, occur on or after the
tenth Trading Day preceding a record date for purposes of determining the
stockholders entitled to vote or to receive the payment of a dividend, then the
per share vote of the Class A Stock determined in accordance with ARTICLE SIXTH,
Section 3.2 shall be increased such that the aggregate Percentage Ownership
Interest of each Class A Holder, including with respect to Series 3 FON Stock
and Series 3 PCS Stock (or stock converting into Series 3 FON Stock and Series 3
PCS Stock pursuant to ARTICLE SIXTH, Section 8.3(c)) acquired prior to such
record date, shall not be diluted as a result of such conversions until 12:01
a.m. on the day immediately following the date of such stockholder meeting or
the dividend payment date, respectively.

Class A Common Stock or if such retired shares constitute all of the authorized
shares of such

     obligations were attributed to the PCS Group, the Board of Directors shall
     determine which, if any, of such shares, other securities or debt
     obligations redeemed or repurchased shall be attributed to the Sprint FON

the outstanding shares of Preferred Stock- First Series, Preferred Stock-Second
Series, and Preferred Stock- Fifth Series shall be attributed entirely to the
Sprint FON Group. Upon any issuance of any shares of Preferred Stock of any
series after November 23, 1998, the Board of Directors shall attribute for
purposes of this ARTICLE SIXTH the shares so issued entirely to the Sprint FON
Group or entirely to the PCS Group or partly to the Sprint FON Group and partly
to the PCS Group in such proportion as the Board of Directors shall determine
and, further, in case of the issuance of shares of Preferred Stock that are
exchangeable or exercisable for PCS Stock, if at the time such shares of
Preferred Stock are issued the Number Of
 
 
                                       58
 
<PAGE>
 
Shares Issuable With Respect To The FON Group Intergroup Interest shall be
greater than zero, then the Board of Directors shall also determine what portion
(which may be some, all or none) of such shares of Preferred Stock shall reduce
the Number Of Shares Issuable With Respect To The FON Group Intergroup Interest,
taking into consideration the use of the proceeds of such issuance of shares of
Preferred Stock in the business of the Sprint FON Group or the PCS Group and any
other relevant factors. Upon any redemption or repurchase of shares of Preferred
Stock, the Board of Directors shall determine the proper attribution thereof in
accordance with Section 9.1(D) of ARTICLE SIXTH. Notwithstanding any such
attribution of shares of Preferred Stock to the Sprint FON Group or the PCS
Group, any dividends or distributions or other payments which are made by the
Corporation on such shares of Preferred Stock may be made, and as required by
the preferences and relative, participating, optional or other special rights
thereof shall be made, out of any of the properties or assets of the
Corporation, regardless of the Business Group to which such properties or assets
are attributed in accordance with the definitions of "Sprint FON Group" and "PCS
Group" set forth in Section 10, except as otherwise provided by the resolution
of the Board of Directors fixing the preferences and relative, participating,
optional or other special rights of a series of Preferred Stock.

     13.8. Intentionally Omitted.
 
     13.9. Preferred Stock--Fifth Series.
 
          13.9.1. Designation; Number of Shares; Stated Value. The Series shall
     be designated as Preferred Stock--Fifth Series (the "Fifth Series") and
     shall consist of ninety-five (95) shares. The shares of such series are
     hereinafter sometimes called the "Fifth Series Shares." The stated value of
     the Fifth Series Shares shall be One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000)
     per share.
 
          13.9.2. Dividends. The rate of dividends upon the Fifth Series Shares
     (which shall be cumulative from the date of issue) and the time of payment
     thereof shall be 6.00% of the stated value per share per annum, payable
     quarterly on the last days of January, April, July and October in each
     year.
 
          13.9.3. Rank. The Fifth Series Shares shall rank on a parity with
     shares of the First Series and Second Series of the Preferred Stock as to
     dividends and upon liquidation.
 
          13.9.4. Voting Rights. Holders of Fifth Series Shares will be entitled
     to one vote for each share held and will be entitled to exercise such
     voting rights together with the holders of Corporation Common Stock of the
     Corporation, without distinction as to class. If no dividends or less than
     full cumulative dividends on the Fifth Series Shares shall have been paid
     for each of four consecutive dividend periods, or if arrearages in the
     payment of dividends on the Fifth Series Shares shall have cumulated to an
     amount equal to full cumulative dividends on the Fifth Series Shares for
     six quarterly dividend periods, the holders of the Fifth Series Shares
     shall, at all meetings held for the election of Directors until full
     cumulative dividends for all past quarterly dividend periods and the
     current quarterly dividend period on the Fifth Series Shares shall have
     been paid or declared and set apart for payment, possess voting power,
     acting alone, to elect the smallest number constituting a majority of the
     Directors then to be elected. The Corporation will promptly take all such
     action as shall be necessary to permit such election to occur promptly
     after such arrearage occurs.
 
          13.9.5. Non-Convertible. The Fifth Series Shares shall not be
     convertible into or exchangeable for stock of any other class or classes of
     the Corporation.
 
          13.9.6. Repurchase by the Corporation. Upon six months' prior written
     notice, the holders of the Fifth Series Shares may tender all and not less
     than all of the Fifth Series Shares to the Corporation for purchase at a
     price per share equal to the stated value of One Hundred Thousand Dollars
     ($100,000) per share plus accrued dividends to the date of repurchase by
     the Corporation (the Purchase Price). Upon such proper tender of all shares
     of the Fifth Series Shares by the holders, the Corporation shall purchase
     the Fifth Series Shares at the Purchase Price.
 
          13.9.7. Tender Procedures. The Fifth Series Shares will not be deemed
     tendered unless and until the certificate or certificates therefor have
     been received by the Corporation or the bank or trust company designated
     for the purpose and, if payment upon acceptance of tender thereof is to be
     made other than to the
 
 
                                       59
 
<PAGE>
 
     record holders, such certificate or certificates have been duly endorsed
     and are in proper form for transfer, with all transfer taxes due in respect
     thereof paid or provided for.
 
          13.9.8. Redemption. If the holders have not theretofore tendered the
     Fifth Series Shares to the Corporation for purchase pursuant to paragraphs
     6 and 7 hereof by March 14, 2003, then the Corporation shall redeem all of
     the outstanding Fifth Series Shares at the Purchase Price on a date set
     forth in written notice to the holders as the redemption date (the
     Redemption Date). The Corporation shall give notice of such redemption not
     less than thirty (30) days prior to the Redemption Date, by mail to the
     holders of record of the outstanding shares at their respective addresses
     then appearing on the books of the Corporation. At any time before the
     Redemption Date, the Corporation may deposit in trust the funds necessary
     for such redemption with a bank or trust company to be designated in the
     notice of redemption, doing business in the City of Chicago and State of
     Illinois or in the City and State of New York, and having capital, surplus
     and undivided profits aggregating $25,000,000. In the event such deposit is
     made so that the deposited funds shall be forthwith available to the
     holders of the shares to be redeemed upon surrender of the certificates
     evidencing such shares, then, upon the giving of the notice of such
     redemption, as hereinabove provided, or upon the earlier delivery to such
     bank or trust company of irrevocable authorization and direction so to give
     such notice, all shares with respect to the redemption of which such
     deposit shall have been made and the giving of such notice effected shall,
     whether or not the certificates for such shares shall be surrendered for
     cancellation, be deemed to be no longer outstanding for any purpose and all
     rights with respect to such shares shall thereupon cease and terminate,
     except only the right of the holders of the certificates for such shares to
     receive, out of the funds so deposited in trust, from and after the time of
     such deposit, the amount payable upon the redemption thereof, without
     interest.
 
          13.9.9. Cancelled Shares. The Fifth Series Shares, purchased upon
     tender or redeemed as herein provided, shall be cancelled and upon such
     cancellation shall be deemed to be authorized and unissued shares of
     Preferred Stock, without par value, of the Corporation but shall not be
     reissued as shares of the same or any theretofore outstanding series.
 
          13.9.10. Default. Default by the Corporation in complying with the
     provisions of paragraph 6 or 8 hereof shall preclude the declaration or the
     payment of dividends or the making of any other distribution whatsoever
     upon the Corporation Common Stock (other than a distribution in shares of
     its Corporation Common Stock) until the Corporation shall have cured such
     default by depositing the funds necessary therefor in the manner and upon
     the terms herein provided. The holders of the Fifth Series Shares shall not
     be entitled to apply to any court of law or equity for a money judgment or
     remedy on account of any such default other than to restrain the
     Corporation from the actions specified above upon the Corporation Common
     Stock until such default shall have been cured.
 
          13.9.11. Liquidation Rights. In the event of any liquidation,
     dissolution or winding up of the Corporation the holders of the Fifth
     Series will be entitled to receive out of the assets of the Corporation
     available for distribution to stockholders, before any distribution of the
     assets shall be made to the holders of Corporation Common Stock, the sum of
     $100,000 per share, plus an amount equal to cumulative dividends accrued
     and unpaid thereon to the date of distribution to holders of the Fifth
     Series. If upon any liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the
     Corporation the amounts payable with respect to the Fifth Series and any
     other series of Preferred Stock which ranks on a parity with the Fifth
     Series are not paid in full, the holders of the Fifth Series and such
     parity Preferred Stock will share ratably in any distribution of assets in
     proportion to the full preferential amounts to which they are entitled.
 
                         PREFERRED STOCK - SIXTH SERIES
 
     (1) Designation and Amount. The shares of such Series shall be designated
as "Preferred Stock-Sixth Series, Junior Participating" (hereafter "Sixth
Series") and the number of shares constituting such series shall be one million
five hundred thousand (1,500,000).
 
     (2) Dividends.
 
          (A) Subject to the prior and superior rights of the holders of any
     shares of any other series of Preferred Stock of the Corporation
     ("Preferred Stock"), or any similar stock ranking prior and superior to the
     shares of
 
 
                                       60
 
<PAGE>
 
     the Sixth Series with respect to dividends, the holders of shares of the
     Sixth Series, in preference to the holders of Common Stock and any shares
     of stock ranking junior (either as to dividends or upon liquidation,
     dissolution or winding up) to the shares of the Sixth Series (collectively
     with such Common Stock, "Junior Stock"), shall be entitled to receive,
     when, as and if declared by the Board of Directors out of funds legally
     available for the purpose, quarterly dividends payable in cash, on January
     1, April 1, July 1 and October 1 in each year (each such date being
     referred to herein as a "Quarterly Dividend Payment Date") in an amount
     (rounded to the nearest cent) equal to the greater of (a) $100.00 or (b)
     the product of the FON Group Multiple (as defined below) times the
     aggregate per share amount of all cash dividends, plus the product of the
     FON Group Multiple times the aggregate per share amount (payable in cash,
     based upon the fair market value at the time the non-cash dividend or other
     distribution is declared as determined in good faith by the Board of
     Directors) of all non-cash dividends or other distributions other than a
     dividend payable in shares of FON Group Common Stock, or a subdivision of
     the outstanding shares of FON Group Common Stock (by reclassification or
     otherwise), declared (but not withdrawn) on the FON Group Common Stock
     since the immediately preceding Quarterly Dividend Payment Date, or, with
     respect to the first Quarterly Dividend Payment Date, since the first
     issuance of any share or fraction of a share of the Sixth Series.
 
          (B) As used herein, the FON Group Multiple shall initially be 2,000.
     In the event the Corporation shall (i) declare any dividend on FON Group
     Common Stock payable in shares of such stock, (ii) subdivide the
     outstanding FON Group Common Stock, or (iii) combine the outstanding FON
     Group Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, then in each such case
     the FON Group Multiple shall be adjusted by multiplying such amount by a
     fraction the numerator of which is the number of shares of FON Group Common
     Stock outstanding immediately after such event and the denominator of which
     is the number of shares of FON Group Common Stock that were outstanding
     immediately prior to such event.
 
          (C) The Corporation shall declare a dividend or distribution on the
     Sixth Series as provided above in paragraph (A) of this Section (2)
     immediately after it declares a dividend or distribution on the FON Group
     Common Stock (other than a dividend payable in shares of FON Group Common
     Stock); provided, however, that in the event no dividend or distribution
     shall have been declared on the FON Group Common Stock during the period
     between any Quarterly Dividend Payment Date and the next subsequent
     Quarterly Dividend Payment Date, the minimum quarterly dividend of $100.00
     on the Sixth Series shall nevertheless be payable on such subsequent
     Quarterly Dividend Payment Date.
 
          (D) Dividends shall begin to accrue and be cumulative on outstanding
     shares of Sixth Series from the Quarterly Dividend Payment Date next
     preceding the date of issue of such shares of Sixth Series, unless the date
     of issue of such shares of Sixth Series is prior to the record date for the
     first Quarterly Dividend Payment Date, in which case dividends on such
     shares shall begin to accrue from the date of issue of such shares, or
     unless the date of issue is a Quarterly Dividend Payment Date or is a date
     after the record date for the determination of holders of shares of Sixth
     Series entitled to receive a quarterly dividend and before such Quarterly
     Dividend Payment Date, in either of which cases such dividends shall begin
     to accrue and be cumulative from such Quarterly Dividend Payment Date.
     Accrued but unpaid dividends shall cumulate but shall not bear interest.
     Dividends paid on the shares of Sixth Series in an amount less than the
     total amount of such dividends at the time accrued and payable on such
     shares shall be allocated pro rata on a share-by-share basis among all such
     shares at the time outstanding.
 
     (3) Voting Rights. Except as prescribed by law and in addition to the
rights provided for in ARTICLE SIXTH of the Articles of Incorporation of the
Corporation, as amended, the holders of the shares of the Sixth Series shall be
entitled to vote at any annual or special meeting of the stockholders of the
Corporation, for each share of Sixth Series, a number of votes equal to the
product of the FON Group Multiple then in effect times the highest number of
votes that any share of FON Group Common Stock entitles its holder to vote at
such meeting of stockholders of the Corporation. The holders of the shares of
the Sixth Series shall be entitled to exercise such voting rights with the
holders of Series 1 FON Stock, without distinction as to class, at any annual or
special meeting of stockholders for the election of directors and on any other
matter submitted to a vote of the stockholders of the Corporation at such
meeting. Except as otherwise provided herein, in the Articles of Incorporation
of the Corporation, in any other Certificate of Designation establishing a
series of Preferred Stock or any similar stock or otherwise required by law, the
holders of the shares of the Sixth Series and the holders of Common Stock shall
vote together as one class on all matters submitted to a vote of stockholders of
the Corporation.

          (A) Whenever quarterly dividends or other dividends or distributions
     payable on the shares of the Sixth Series as provided in Section (2) are in
     arrears, thereafter and until all accrued and unpaid dividends and
     distributions, whether or not declared, on shares of the Sixth Series
     outstanding shall have been paid in full, the Corporation shall not:
 
               (i)   declare or pay dividends (except a dividend payable in FON
          Group Common Stock and/or any other Junior Stock) on, make any other
          distributions on, or redeem or purchase or otherwise acquire for
          consideration any shares of Junior Stock;
 
               (ii)  declare or pay dividends on or make any other distribution
          on any shares of stock ranking on a parity (either as to dividends or
          upon liquidation, dissolution or winding up) with the shares of the
          Sixth Series, except dividends paid ratably on the shares of the Sixth
          Series and all such parity stock on which dividends are payable or in
          arrears in proportion to the total amounts to which the holders of all
          such shares are then entitled;
 
               (iii) redeem or purchase or otherwise acquire for consideration
          any shares ranking on a parity (either as to dividends or upon
          dissolution, liquidation or winding up) with the shares of the Sixth
          Series, provided that the Corporation may at any time redeem, purchase
          or otherwise acquire shares of such parity stock in exchange for
          shares of Junior Stock; or
 
               (iv)  purchase or otherwise acquire for consideration any shares
          of the Sixth Series, or any shares of stock ranking on a parity with
          the shares of the Sixth Series, except in accordance with a purchase
          offer made in writing or by publication (as determined by the Board of
          Directors) to all holders of such shares upon such terms as the Board
          of Directors, after consideration of the respective annual dividend
          rates and other relative rights and preferences of the respective
          series and classes, shall determine in good faith will result in fair
          and equitable treatment among the respective series or classes.
 
          (B) The Corporation shall not permit any subsidiary of the Corporation
     to purchase or otherwise acquire for consideration any shares of stock of
     the Corporation unless the Corporation could, under paragraph (A) of this
     Section (4), purchase or otherwise acquire such shares at such time and in
     such manner.
 
     (5) Reacquired Shares. Any shares of the Sixth Series purchased or
otherwise acquired by the Corporation in any manner whatsoever shall be retired
and canceled promptly after the acquisition thereof. All such shares shall upon
their cancellation become authorized but unissued shares of Preferred Stock and
may be reissued as part of a new series of Preferred Stock to be created by
resolution or resolutions of the Board of Directors, subject to the conditions
and restrictions on issuance set forth herein, in the Articles of Incorporation,
in any other Certificate of Designation establishing a series of Preferred Stock
or any similar stock or as otherwise required by law.
 
     (6) Liquidation, Dissolution or Winding Up.
 
          (A) In the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation,
     dissolution or winding up of the Corporation, the holders of the shares of
     the Sixth Series shall be entitled to receive, in preference to the holders
     of Junior Stock, the greater of (a) $1,000.00 per share, plus accrued and
     unpaid dividends to the date of distribution, whether or not earned or
     declared, or (b) an amount per share equal to the product of the FON Group
     Multiple then in effect times the aggregate amount to be distributed per
     share to holders of FON Group Common Stock.
 
          (B) In the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation,
     dissolution or winding up of the Corporation, the holders of stock ranking
     on a parity (either as to dividends or upon liquidation, dissolution or
     winding up) with the Sixth Series shall not receive any distributions
     except for distributions made ratably on the Sixth Series and all other
     such parity stock in proportion to the total amounts to which the holders
     of all such shares are entitled upon such liquidation, dissolution or
     winding up.

     (7) Consolidation, Merger, etc. In case the Corporation shall enter into
any consolidation, merger, combination or other transaction in which the shares
of Common Stock are exchanged for or changed into other stock or securities,
cash and/or any other property, then in any such case the shares of the Sixth
Series shall at the same time be similarly exchanged or changed in an amount per
share equal to the product of the FON Group Multiple then in effect times the
aggregate amount of stock, securities, cash and/or any other property (payable
in kind), as the case may be, into which or for which each share of FON Group
Common Stock is changed or exchanged.
 
     (8) Ranking. The shares of the Sixth Series shall rank junior to all other
series of the Corporation's Preferred Stock as to the payment of dividends and
the distribution of assets, unless the terms of any such series shall provide
otherwise. The shares of the Sixth Series shall rank on a parity with the
Corporation's Preferred Stock-Series Eighth, Junior Participating, as to the
payment of dividends and the distribution of assets. Nothing herein shall
preclude the Board of Directors of the Corporation from creating any additional
series of Preferred Stock or any similar stock ranking on a parity with or prior
to the shares of the Sixth Series as to the payment of dividends or distribution
of assets.
 
     (9) Fractional Shares. Shares of the Sixth Series may be issued in
fractions of a share which shall entitle the holder, in proportion to such

     The designation thereof shall be "Preferred Stock--Seventh Series,
     Convertible" (hereinafter "Seventh Series"). Shares of the Seventh Series
     shall rank junior as to dividends and upon liquidation to shares of the
     Fifth Series of the Preferred Stock and any other Preferred Stock
     designated as senior to the Seventh Series as to dividends or upon
     liquidation, dissolution or winding up ("Senior Stock"), and shall have a
     preference over the shares of the Corporation Common Stock and any other
     class or series of Junior Stock.
 
          13.10.2. Dividends. Holders of record of shares of the Seventh Series
     will be entitled to receive, when, as and if declared by the Board of
     Directors of the Corporation, out of funds legally available for the
     payment of dividends, cumulative cash dividends ("Preferred Dividends")
     payable at the rate of $6.73 per share quarterly in arrears on each
     September 30, December 31, March 31 and June 30 (each a "Dividend Payment
     Date") or, if any such date is not a business day (as defined herein), the

     the Seventh Series for any period less than a full quarterly dividend
     period shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day
     months and the actual number of days elapsed in any period less than one
     month. Preferred Dividends shall accrue on a daily basis whether or not
     there are funds of the Corporation legally available for the payment of
     such dividends and whether or not such Preferred Dividends are declared.
     Accrued but unpaid Preferred Dividends shall accumulate as of the Dividend
     Payment Date on which they first become payable, but no interest shall
     accrue on accumulated but unpaid Preferred Dividends. Before any dividends
     on the Corporation Common Stock or any other class or series of stock of
     the Corporation ranking junior to the Seventh Series as to dividends shall
     be paid or declared and set apart for payment, the holders of shares of the
     Seventh Series shall be entitled to receive the full accumulated cash
     dividends for all quarterly dividend periods ending on or before the date
     on which any dividend on any such class or series of stock ranking junior
     to the Seventh Series as to dividends is declared or is to be paid.

          13.10.3. Conversion.
 
               (a) Each holder of shares of Seventh Series may at such holder's
          option at any time convert any or all of such holder's shares of
          Seventh Series into (i) if such holder is a Cable Holder, shares of
          Series 2 PCS Stock, and (ii) if such holder is not a Cable Holder,
          shares of Series 1 PCS Stock. All references herein to shares of
          Series 2 PCS Stock issuable upon conversion of shares of Seventh
          Series shall be deemed to refer to shares of Series 1 PCS Stock if the
          holder of such Seventh Series is not a Cable Holder. Such shares of
          Seventh Series shall be convertible into a number of fully paid and
          nonassessable whole shares of Series 2 PCS Stock as is equal to the
          aggregate Liquidation Preference of the shares of Seventh Series
          surrendered for conversion divided by the Initial Conversion Price (as
          adjusted from time to time, the "Conversion Price"). In case of the
          redemption of any shares of the Seventh Series, such right of
          conversion shall cease and terminate as to the shares duly called for
          redemption at the close of business on the date fixed for redemption,
          unless the Corporation defaults in the payment of the redemption price
          plus all accrued and unpaid dividends. If the Corporation defaults
          with respect to such payment, the right to convert the shares
          designated for redemption shall terminate at the close of business on
          the business day next preceding the date that such default is cured.
          Upon conversion the Corporation shall make no payment or adjustment on
          account of dividends accrued or in arrears on the Seventh Series
          surrendered for conversion.
 
               (b) Holders of shares of Seventh Series at the close of business
          on a record date for any payment of declared Preferred Dividends shall
          be entitled to receive the Preferred Dividends payable on those shares
          of Seventh Series on the corresponding Dividend Payment Date
          notwithstanding the conversion pursuant to this section of those
          shares of Seventh Series following such record date and before the
          close of business on such Dividend Payment Date. Except as provided in
          the preceding sentence, upon any conversion of shares of Seventh
          Series, the Corporation shall make no payment of or allowance of
          unpaid Preferred Dividends, whether or not in arrears, on such shares
          of Seventh Series, or for previously declared dividends or
          distributions on the shares of Series 2 PCS Stock issued upon
          conversion.
 
               (c) Conversion of shares of Seventh Series may be effected by
          delivering certificates evidencing such shares of Seventh Series,
          together with written notice of conversion stating the number of
          shares to be converted and a proper assignment of such certificates to
          the Corporation or in blank, to the office of the transfer agent for
          the Seventh Series or to any other office or agency maintained by the
          Corporation for that purpose and otherwise in accordance with
          conversion procedures established by the Corporation. Each conversion
          shall be deemed to have been effected immediately before the close of
          business on the date on which the foregoing requirements shall have
          been satisfied. The Corporation shall as promptly as practicable after
          any conversion pursuant to this section issue and deliver to the
          converting holder a certificate or certificates representing the
          number of whole shares of Series 2 PCS Stock into which such shares of
          Seventh Series were converted. Upon conversion of less than the entire
          number of the shares of Seventh Series represented by any certificate,
          the Corporation shall issue and deliver to the converting holder a new
          certificate representing the number of shares of Seventh Series not
          converted. The Corporation shall effect such conversion as soon as
          practicable; provided that the Corporation shall not be required to
          convert shares of Seventh Series, and no surrender of shares of
          Seventh Series shall be effective for that purpose, while the stock
          transfer books of the Corporation for the Series 2 PCS Stock are
          closed for any reason, but the surrender of shares of Seventh Series
          for conversion during any period while such books are so closed shall
          become effective for conversion immediately upon the reopening of such
          books, as if the conversion had been made on the date such shares of
          Seventh Series were surrendered, and at the Conversion Price in effect
          on the date of such surrender.
 
               (d) No fraction of a share of Series 2 PCS Stock shall be issued
          upon any conversion. In lieu of the fraction of a share to which the
          holder of shares of the Seventh Series surrendered for conversion
          would otherwise be entitled, such holder shall receive, as soon as
          practicable after the date of conversion, an amount in cash equal to
          the same fraction of the market value of a full share of Series 1 PCS
          Stock. For the purposes of this subparagraph, the market value of a
          share of Series 1 PCS Stock shall be the Closing Price of such a share
          on the day immediately preceding the date upon which such shares of
          Seventh Series are surrendered for conversion.
 
 
                                       65
 
<PAGE>
 
               (e) The Conversion Price in effect at any time shall be subject
          to adjustment as follows:
 
                    (i) If the Corporation shall at any time after the filing of
               these Articles of Incorporation: (A) pay a dividend on the PCS
               Stock in shares of PCS Stock, (B) subdivide the outstanding
               shares of PCS Stock into a greater number of shares, (C) combine
               the outstanding shares of PCS Stock into a smaller number of
               shares, (D) pay a dividend on the PCS Stock in shares of its
               capital stock (other than PCS Stock), or (E) issue any shares of
               its capital stock by reclassification of the shares of PCS Stock
               (other than any reclassification by way of merger or binding
               share exchange that is subject to Section 13.10.3(e)(viii)), then
               the Conversion Price in effect at the time of the record date for
               such dividend or of the effective date of such subdivision,
               combination or reclassification shall be proportionately adjusted
               so that if the holder elects to convert shares of Seventh Series
               after such time, the holder thereof shall be entitled to receive
               the aggregate number of shares of PCS Stock which, if such
               conversion had occurred immediately prior to such time, he would
               have owned upon such conversion and been entitled to receive by
               virtue of such dividend, subdivision, combination or
               reclassification. Such adjustment shall be made successively
               whenever any event listed above shall occur. Subject to Section
               13.10.3(e)(vi) for a dividend or distribution, the adjustment
               shall become effective immediately after the record date for the
               dividend or distribution, and for a subdivision, combination or
               reclassification, the adjustment shall become effective
               immediately after the effective date of the subdivision,
               combination or reclassification.
 
                    (ii) If the Corporation shall issue rights or warrants to
               the holders of the PCS Stock entitling them (for a period
               expiring within 45 days after the record date for the
               determination of stockholders entitled to receive such rights or
               warrants) to subscribe for or purchase shares of PCS Stock (or
               Convertible Securities) at a price per share (or having a
               conversion price per share, after adding thereto an allocable
               portion of the Conversion Price of the right or warrant to
               purchase such Convertible Securities, computed on the basis of
               the maximum number of shares of PCS Stock issuable upon
               conversion of such Convertible Securities) less than the Current
               Market Price per share on the Determination Date, the Conversion
               Price shall be adjusted by multiplying the conversion price in
               effect immediately prior to such record date by a fraction, of
               which the numerator shall be the number of shares of PCS Stock
               outstanding on such record date plus the number of shares which
               the aggregate offering price of the total number of shares of PCS
               Stock so offered (or the aggregate initial conversion price of
               the Convertible Securities so offered, after adding thereto the
               aggregate conversion price of the rights or warrants to purchase
               such Convertible Securities) to holders of PCS Stock (and to
               holders of Convertible Securities referred to in the following
               paragraph if the distribution to which this paragraph (ii)
               applies is also being made to such holders) would purchase at
               such Current Market Price, and of which the denominator shall be
               the number of shares of PCS Stock outstanding on such record date
               plus the number of additional shares of PCS Stock so offered for
               subscription or purchase (or into which the Convertible
               Securities so offered are initially convertible). The adjustment
               contemplated by this paragraph (ii) shall be made successively
               whenever any such rights or warrants are issued and shall become
               effective immediately after the close of business on such record
               date; however, to the extent that shares of PCS Stock (or
               Convertible Securities) have not been issued when such rights or
               warrants expire (or, in the case of rights or warrants to
               purchase Convertible Securities which have been exercised, if all
               of the shares of PCS Stock issuable upon conversion of such
               Convertible Securities have not been issued prior to the
               expiration of the conversion right thereof), the Conversion Price
               shall be readjusted to the Conversion Price which would then be
               in effect had the adjustments made upon the issuance of such
               rights or warrants been made upon the basis of delivery of only
               the number of shares (or Convertible Securities) actually issued
               upon the exercise of such rights or warrants (or the conversion
               of such Convertible Securities).
 
                    For purposes of this paragraph (ii) the number of shares of
               PCS Stock outstanding on any record date shall be deemed to
               include the maximum number of shares of PCS Stock
 
 
                                       66
 
<PAGE>
 
               the issuance of which would be necessary to effect the full
               exercise, exchange or conversion of all Convertible Securities
               outstanding on such record date which are then exercisable,
               exchangeable or convertible at a price (before giving effect to
               any adjustment to such price for the distribution to which this
               paragraph (ii) is being applied) equal to or less than the
               Current Market Price per share of PCS Stock on the applicable
               Determination Date, if all of such Convertible Securities were
               deemed to have been exercised, exchanged or converted immediately
               prior to the opening of business on such record date. In case any
               subscription price may be paid in a consideration part or all of
               which shall be in a form other than cash, the value of such
               consideration shall be as determined by the Board of Directors of
               the Corporation.
 
                    (iii) If the Corporation shall distribute to the holders of
               PCS Stock evidences of its indebtedness or assets or subscription
               rights or warrants (excluding (x) dividends or distributions
               referred to in Section 13.10.3(e)(i) and distributions of rights
               or warrants referred to in Section 13.10.3(e)(ii) and (y) cash
               dividends or other cash distributions, unless such cash dividends
               or cash distributions are Extraordinary Cash Dividends), the
               Conversion Price shall be adjusted by multiplying the Conversion
               Price in effect immediately prior to the record date for the
               determination of stockholders entitled to receive such
               distribution by a fraction, of which the numerator shall be the
               number of shares of PCS Stock outstanding on such record date
               multiplied by the Current Market Price on the Determination Date,
               less the fair market value (as determined by the Board of
               Directors of the Corporation) on such record date of the
               evidences of indebtedness, assets (including Extraordinary Cash
               Dividends), subscription rights or warrants to be distributed to
               the holders of PCS Stock (and to the holders of Convertible
               Securities referred to below if the distribution to which this
               paragraph (iii) applies is also being made to such holders), and
               of which the denominator shall be the number of shares of PCS
               Stock outstanding on such record date multiplied by such Current
               Market Price. For purposes of this paragraph (iii), the number of
               shares of PCS Stock outstanding on any record date shall be
               deemed to include the maximum number of shares of PCS Stock the
               issuance of which would be necessary to effect the full exercise,
               exchange or conversion of all Convertible Securities outstanding
               on such record date which are then exercisable, exchangeable or
               convertible at a price (before giving effect to any adjustment to
               such price for the distribution to which this paragraph (iii) is
               being applied) equal to or less than the Current Market Price per
               share of PCS Stock on the applicable Determination Date, if all
               of such Convertible Securities were deemed to have been
               exercised, exchanged or converted immediately prior to the
               opening of business on such record date.
 
                    For purposes of this paragraph (iii), the term
               "Extraordinary Cash Dividend" shall mean any cash dividend with
               respect to the PCS Stock the amount of which, together with the
               aggregate amount of cash dividends on the PCS Stock to be
               aggregated with such cash dividend in accordance with the
               following provisions of this paragraph, equals or exceeds the
               threshold percentage set forth below in the following sentence.
               If, upon the date prior to the Ex-Dividend Date with respect to a
               cash dividend on the PCS Stock, the aggregate of the amount of
               such cash dividend together with the amounts of all cash
               dividends on the PCS Stock with Ex-Dividend Dates occurring in
               the 365 consecutive day period ending on the date prior to the
               Ex- Dividend Date with respect to the cash dividend to which this
               provision is being applied (other than any such other cash
               dividends with Ex-Dividend Dates occurring in such period for
               which a prior adjustment to the Conversion Price was previously
               made under this paragraph (iii)) equals or exceeds on a per share
               basis 5% of the average of the Closing Prices during the period
               beginning on the date after the first such Ex-Dividend Date in
               such period and ending on the date prior to the Ex-Dividend Date
               with respect to the cash dividend to which this provision is
               being applied (except that if no other cash dividend has had an
               Ex- Dividend Date occurring in such period, the period for
               calculating the average of the Closing Prices shall be the period
               commencing 365 days prior to the date immediately prior to the
               Ex- Dividend Date with respect to the cash dividend to which this
               provision is being applied), such cash dividend together with
               each other cash dividend with an Ex-
 
 
                                       67
 
<PAGE>
 
               Dividend Date occurring in such 365-day period that is aggregated
               with such cash dividend in accordance with this paragraph shall
               be deemed to be an Extraordinary Cash Dividend.
 
                    The adjustment pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this
               paragraph (iii) shall be made successively whenever any
               distribution to which this paragraph (iii) applies is made, and
               shall become effective immediately after the record date for the
               determination of stockholders entitled to receive the
               distribution.
 
                    (iv)  If this Section 13.10.3(e) requires adjustments to the
               Conversion Price under more than one of clause (D) of the first
               sentence of paragraph (i), paragraph (ii) or paragraph (iii), and
               the record dates for the distribution giving rise to such
               adjustments shall occur on the same date, then such adjustments
               shall be made by applying, first, the provisions of paragraph
               (i), second the provisions of paragraph (iii) and, third, the
               provisions of paragraph (ii).
 
                    (v)   No adjustment in the Conversion Price shall be
               required unless such adjustment would require an increase or
               decrease of at least one percent thereof; provided, however, that
               any adjustments which by reason of this paragraph (v) are not
               required to be made shall be carried forward and taken into
               account in any subsequent adjustment. All calculations under this
               Section 13.10.3(e) shall be made to the nearest cent or to the
               nearest one-hundredth of a share, as the case may be.
 
                    (vi)  In any case in which this Section 13.10.3(e) shall
               require that an adjustment in the Conversion Price be made
               effective as of the record date for a specified event, the
               Corporation may elect to defer until the occurrence of such event
               (x) issuing to the holder of the Seventh Series the Shares, if
               any, issuable upon such conversion over and above the Shares, if
               any, issuable upon such conversion on the basis of the Conversion
               Price in effect prior to such adjustment, if the Seventh Series
               is converted after such record date, and (y) paying to the holder
               cash or its check in lieu of any fractional interest to which the
               holder would be entitled pursuant to Section 13.10.3(d);
               provided, however, that the Corporation shall deliver to the
               holder a due bill or other appropriate instrument evidencing the
               holder's right to receive such additional Shares and such cash
               upon the occurrence of the event requiring such adjustment.
 
                    (vii) If the Corporation consolidates with or merges into,
               or transfers (other than by mortgage or pledge) its properties
               and assets substantially as an entirety to, another Person or the
               Corporation is a party to a merger or binding share exchange
               which reclassifies or changes its outstanding PCS Stock, or the
               PCS Stock is converted into another class or series of capital
               stock of the Corporation, the Corporation (or its successor in
               such transaction) or the transferee of such properties and assets
               shall make appropriate provision so that the holder's certificate
               representing shares of Seventh Series shall thereafter be
               convertible, upon the terms and conditions specified in the
               certificates, for the kind and amount of securities, cash or
               other assets receivable upon such transaction by a holder of the
               number of shares of PCS Stock purchasable upon conversion of the
               holder's Seventh Series immediately before the effective date of
               such transaction (assuming, to the extent applicable, that such
               holder of PCS Stock failed to exercise any rights of election
               with respect thereto, and received per Share the kind and amount
               of securities, cash or other assets received per share of PCS
               Stock by a plurality of the nonelecting shares of PCS Stock); and
               in any such case, if necessary, the provisions set forth in this
               Section 13.10.3(e) with respect to the rights and interests
               thereafter of the holder of the Seventh Series shall be
               appropriately adjusted so as to be applicable, as nearly as may
               reasonably be, to any such other securities or assets thereafter
               deliverable on the conversion of the holder's Seventh Series. The
               subdivision or combination of the PCS Stock at any time
               outstanding into a greater or lesser number of shares of PCS
               Stock shall not be deemed to be a reclassification of the PCS
               Stock for the purposes of this subsection. The Corporation shall
               not effect any such consolidation, merger, transfer or binding
               share exchange unless prior to or simultaneously with the
               consummation thereof the successor (if other than the
               Corporation) resulting from such consolidation or
 
 
                                       68
 
<PAGE>
 
               merger or the Person purchasing such assets or other appropriate
               Person shall assume, by written instrument, the obligation to
               deliver to the holders of the Seventh Series such securities,
               cash or other assets as, in accordance with the foregoing
               provisions, the holder may be entitled to purchase and the other
               obligations in this Section 13.10.
 
               The Corporation may make such reductions in the Conversion Price,
          in addition to those required by paragraphs (i), (ii) and (iii) of
          this Section 13.10.3(e), as it shall in its sole discretion determine
          to be advisable.
 
                    (viii) Subject to Section 13.10.3(e)(v) and to the remaining
               provisions of this Section 13.10.3(e)(viii), in the event that a
               holder of Seventh Series would be entitled to receive upon
               conversion thereof pursuant to this Section 13.10.3(e) any
               Redeemable Capital Stock and the Corporation redeems, exchanges
               or otherwise acquires all of the outstanding shares or other
               units of such Redeemable Capital Stock (such event being a
               "Redemption Event"), then, from and after the effective date of
               such Redemption Event, the holders of shares of Seventh Series
               then outstanding shall be entitled to receive upon conversion of
               such shares, in lieu of shares or units of such Redeemable
               Capital Stock, the kind and amount of shares of stock and other
               securities and property receivable upon the Redemption Event by a
               holder of the number of shares or units of such Redeemable
               Capital Stock into which such shares of Seventh Series could have
               been converted immediately prior to the effective date of such
               Redemption Event (assuming, to the extent applicable, that such
               holder failed to exercise any rights of election with respect
               thereto and received per share or unit of such Redeemable Capital
               Stock the kind and amount of stock and other securities and
               property received per share or unit by a plurality of the
               non-electing shares or units of such Redeemable Capital Stock),
               and (from and after the effective date of such Redemption Event)
               the holders of the Seventh Series shall have no other conversion
               rights under these provisions with respect to such Redeemable
               Capital Stock.
 
                    Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the redemption price for
               the shares of such Redeemable Capital Stock is paid in whole or
               in part in Redemption Securities, and the Mirror Preferred Stock
               Condition is met, the Seventh Series shall not be convertible
               into such Redemption Securities and, from and after the
               applicable redemption date, the holders of any shares of Seventh
               Series that have not been exchanged for Mirror Preferred Stock
               and Exchange Preferred Stock shall have no conversion rights
               under these provisions except for any conversion right that may
               have existed immediately prior to the effective date of the
               Redemption Event with respect to any shares of stock (including
               the PCS Stock) or other securities or property other than the
               Redeemable Capital Stock so redeemed. The Corporation shall use
               all commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the Mirror
               Preferred Stock Condition is satisfied. The "Mirror Preferred
               Stock Condition" will be satisfied in connection with a
               redemption of any Redeemable Capital Stock into which the Seventh
               Series is then convertible if appropriate provision is made so
               that the holders of the Seventh Series have the right to exchange
               their shares of Seventh Series on the effective date of the
               Redemption Event for Exchange Preferred Stock of the Corporation
               and Mirror Preferred Stock of the issuer of the Redemption
               Securities. The sum of the initial liquidation preferences of the
               shares of Exchange Preferred and Mirror Preferred Stock delivered
               in exchange for a share of Seventh Series will equal the
               Liquidation Preference of a share of Seventh Series on the
               effective date of the Redemption Event. The Mirror Preferred
               Stock will have an aggregate initial liquidation preference equal
               to the product of the aggregate Liquidation Preference of the
               shares of Seventh Series exchanged therefor and the quotient of
               (x) the product of the amount of shares of the Redeemable Capital
               Stock for which each share of Seventh Series is then convertible
               to be redeemed (determined immediately prior to the effective
               date of the Redemption Event) and the average of the daily
               Closing Prices of the Redeemable Capital Stock for the period of
               ten consecutive trading days ending on the third trading day
               prior to the effective date of the Redemption Event, divided by
               (y) the sum of the amount determined pursuant to clause (x), plus
               the fair value of the shares of stock or other securities or
               property (other than the Redeemable Capital Stock being redeemed)
               that would have been receivable by a holder of Seventh Series
               upon conversion thereof immediately
 
 
                                       69
 
<PAGE>
 
               prior to the effective date of the Redemption Event (such fair
               value to be determined in the case of stock or other securities
               with a Closing Price in the same manner as provided in clause (x)
               and otherwise by the Board of Directors in the exercise of its
               judgment). The shares of Exchange Preferred Stock will have an
               aggregate initial liquidation preference equal to the difference
               between the aggregate Liquidation Preference of the shares of
               Seventh Series exchanged therefor and the aggregate initial
               liquidation preference of the Mirror Preferred Stock. No shares
               of Exchange Preferred Stock will be issued in exchange for the
               Seventh Series if the shares of Exchange Preferred Stock would
               have no Liquidation Preference as a result of the above formula.
 
                    (ix) If the Corporation effects a Spin Off, the Corporation
               shall make appropriate provision so that the holders of the
               Seventh Series have the right to exchange their shares of Seventh
               Series on the effective date of the Spin Off for Exchange
               Preferred Stock of the Corporation and Mirror Preferred Stock of
               the issuer of the Spin Off Securities. The sum of the initial
               liquidation preference of the shares of Exchange Preferred Stock
               and Mirror Preferred Stock delivered in exchange for a share of
               Seventh Series will equal the Liquidation Preference of a share
               of Seventh Series on the effective date of the Spin Off. The
               Mirror Preferred Stock will have an aggregate liquidation
               preference equal to the product of the aggregate Liquidation
               Preference of the shares of Seventh Series exchanged therefor and
               the quotient of (x) the product of the number (or fraction) of
               Spin Off Securities that would have been receivable upon such
               Spin Off by a holder of the number of shares of PCS Stock
               issuable upon conversion of a share of Seventh Series immediately
               prior to the effective date of the Spin Off and the average of
               the daily Closing Prices of the Spin Off Securities for the
               period of ten consecutive trading days commencing on the tenth
               trading day following the effective date of the Spin Off, divided
               by (y) the sum of the amount determined pursuant to clause (x),
               plus the fair value of the shares of PCS Stock and other
               securities or property (other than Spin Off Securities) that
               would have been receivable by a holder of a share of Seventh
               Series in the Spin Off following conversion thereof immediately
               prior to the effective date of the Spin Off (such fair value to
               be determined in the case of PCS Stock or other securities with a
               Closing Price in the same manner as provided in clause (x) and
               otherwise by the Board of Directors in the exercise of its
               judgment). The shares of Exchange Preferred Stock will have an
               aggregate initial liquidation preference equal to the difference
               between the aggregate Liquidation Preference of the shares of
               Seventh Series exchanged therefor and the aggregate initial
               liquidation preference of the Mirror Preferred Stock. No shares
               of Exchange Preferred Stock will be issued in exchange for the
               Seventh Series if the shares of Exchange Preferred Stock would
               have no Liquidation Preference as a result of the above formula.
               From and after the effective date of such Spin Off, the holders
               of any shares of Seventh Series that have not been exchanged for
               Mirror Preferred Stock and Exchange Preferred Stock as provided
               above shall have no conversion rights under these provisions with
               respect to such Spin Off Securities.
 
               (f) The Corporation shall pay any and all documentary stamp or
          similar issue or transfer taxes payable in respect of the issue or
          delivery of shares of PCS Stock on the conversion of Seventh Series;
          provided, however, that the Corporation shall not be required to pay
          any tax that may be payable in respect of any registration of transfer
          involved in the issue or delivery of shares of PCS Stock in a name
          other than that of the registered holder of Seventh Series converted
          or to be converted, and no such issue or delivery shall be made unless
          and until the person requesting such issue has paid to the Corporation
          the amount of any such tax or has established, to the satisfaction of
          the Corporation, that such tax has been paid.
 
          13.10.4. Liquidation Rights. Subject to prior payment of preferred
     amounts to which any Senior Stock is entitled, in the event of any
     liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation the holders of
     the Seventh Series will be entitled to receive out of the assets of the
     Corporation available for distribution to stockholders, before any
     distribution of the assets shall be made to the holders of the Corporation
     Common Stock or any other class or series of stock ranking junior to the
     Seventh Series upon liquidation, the sum of U.S. $1,000 per share (the
     "Liquidation Preference"), plus in each case any accumulated unpaid
     dividends (whether or not declared), to the date of final distribution. If

<PAGE>
 
     the Corporation the amounts payable with respect to the Seventh Series and
     any other Parity Stock are not paid in full, the holders of the Seventh
     Series and such Parity Stock will share ratably in any distribution of
     assets in proportion to the full preferential amounts to which they are
     entitled. After payment of the full amount of the liquidating distribution
     to which they are entitled, the holders of Seventh Series shall not be
     entitled to any further participation in any distribution of assets by the
     Corporation. A consolidation or merger of the Corporation with or into one
     or more other corporations (whether or not the Corporation is the
     corporation surviving such consolidation or merger), or a sale, lease or
     exchange of all or substantially all of the assets of the Corporation shall
     not be deemed to be a voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution, or
     winding up of the Corporation. Notice of a liquidation, dissolution or
     winding up of the Corporation shall be filed at each office or agency
     maintained for the purpose of conversion of the Seventh Series, and shall
     be mailed to the holders of Seventh Series at their last addresses as they
     shall appear on the stock register of the Corporation, at least 20 business
     days before any such action, stating the date on which any such action is
     expected to become effective. The failure to give or receive the notice
     required by this Section or any defect therein shall not affect the
     legality or validity of any such action.
 
     13.10.5. Redemption.
 
          (a) General. Except as provided below and in Section 13.10.5(h), the
     Seventh Series shall not be redeemed by the Corporation prior to November
     23, 2001. The Corporation may at its option redeem the Seventh Series in
     whole or in part after November 23, 2001, at any time or from time to time,
     upon at least thirty days' prior notice, at a redemption price equal to the
     Liquidation Preference per share of Seventh Series, plus any accumulated
     unpaid dividends (whether or not declared) up to but excluding such
     redemption date. In connection with a Spin Off or a Redemption Event, the
     Corporation may, at its option, redeem the Seventh Series in whole after
     November 23, 2000, and before November 23, 2001, upon at least thirty days
     prior notice, at a redemption price equal to the Premium Price per share of
     Seventh Series, plus any accumulated unpaid dividends (whether or not
     declared) up to but excluding such redemption date, which redemption shall
     be deemed effective immediately prior to the consummation of the Spin Off
     or the Redemption Event. If less than all the outstanding Seventh Series is
     to be redeemed, the shares to be redeemed shall be selected pro rata as
     nearly as practicable or by lot, or by such other method as may be
     determined by the Board of Directors to be equitable, without regard to
     whether the shares to be redeemed are convertible into Series 1 PCS Stock
     or Series 2 PCS Stock. Shares so redeemed shall be cancelled and upon such
     cancellation shall be deemed to be authorized and unissued shares of
     Preferred Stock, without par value, of the Corporation but shall not be
     reissued as shares of the same series.
 
          (b) Mandatory Redemption. To the extent permitted by law, the
     Corporation shall redeem, on November 23, 2008 (or, if such day is not a
     business day, on the first business day thereafter) (subject to extension
     as provided in the last sentence of this Section 13.10.5(b), the "Mandatory
     Redemption Date"), all remaining shares of Seventh Series then outstanding,
     at the redemption price of $1,000 for each share outstanding, plus an
     amount in cash equal to all accrued but unpaid dividends thereon to the
     Mandatory Redemption Date. Prior to authorizing or making such redemption
     with respect to the Seventh Series, the Corporation, by resolution of the
     Board of Directors shall, to the extent of funds legally available
     therefor, declare a dividend on the Seventh Series payable on the Mandatory
     Redemption Date in an amount equal to any accrued and unpaid dividends on
     the Seventh Series as of such date and, if the Corporation does not have
     sufficient legally available funds to declare and pay all dividends accrued
     at the time of such redemption, any remaining accrued and unpaid dividends
     shall be added to the redemption price. After paying any accrued and unpaid
     dividends pursuant to the foregoing sentence, if the funds of the
     Corporation legally available for redemption of shares of the Seventh
     Series then required to be redeemed are insufficient to redeem the total
     number of such shares then outstanding, those funds which are legally
     available shall be used to redeem the maximum possible number of shares of
     the Seventh Series. At any time and from time to time thereafter, when
     additional funds of the Corporation are legally available to discharge its
     obligation to redeem all of the outstanding shares of Seventh Series
     required to be redeemed pursuant to this section (the "Mandatory Redemption
     Obligation"), such funds shall be immediately used to discharge such
     Mandatory Redemption Obligation until the balance of such shares have been
     redeemed. If and so long as the Mandatory Redemption Obligation shall not
     be fully discharged, (x) dividends on any remaining outstanding shares of
     Seventh Series shall continue to accrue and be added to the dividend
     payable pursuant to the second preceding sentence and (y) the Corporation
     shall not declare or pay any dividend or make any distribution on any
     Parity Stock or Junior Stock. With respect to any Exchange Preferred Stock
     or Mirror Preferred Stock, the Mandatory
 
 
                                       71
 
<PAGE>
 
     Redemption Date shall be the later to occur of (i) November 23, 2008, and
     (ii) the fifth anniversary of the date of issuance of such Exchange
     Preferred Stock or Mirror Preferred Stock.
 
          (c) Notice. The Corporation will provide notice of any redemption of
     shares of Seventh Series to holders of record of the Seventh Series to be
     redeemed not less than 30 nor more than 60 days prior to the date fixed for
     such redemption. Such notice shall be provided by first-class mail postage
     prepaid, to each holder of record of the Seventh Series to be redeemed, at
     such holder's address as it appears on the stock transfer books of the
     Corporation. Each such mailed notice shall state, as appropriate, the
     following:
 
               (i)    the redemption date;
 
               (ii)   the number of shares of Seventh Series to be redeemed and,
          if fewer than all the shares held by any holder are to be redeemed,
          the number of such shares to be redeemed from such holder;
 
               (iii)  the Redemption Price;
 
               (iv)   the place or places where certificates for such shares are
          to be surrendered for redemption;
 
               (v)    the amount of full cumulative dividends per share of
          Seventh Series to be redeemed accrued and unpaid up to but excluding
          such redemption date, and that dividends on shares of Seventh Series
          to be redeemed will cease to accrue on such redemption date unless the
          Corporation shall default in payment of the Redemption Price plus such
          full cumulative dividends accrued and unpaid thereon;
 
               (vi)   the name and location of any bank or trust company with
          which the Corporation will deposit redemption funds pursuant to
          subsection (e) below;
 
               (vii)  the then effective Conversion Price (as determined under
          Section 13.10.3); and
 
               (viii) that the right of holders to convert shares of Seventh
          Series to be redeemed will terminate at the close of business on the
          business day next preceding the date fixed for redemption (unless the
          Corporation shall default in the payment of the Redemption Price and
          such full cumulative dividends accrued and unpaid thereon).
 
     Any notice that is mailed as set forth above shall be conclusively presumed
     to have been duly given, whether or not the holder of shares of Seventh
     Series receives such notice, and failure to give such notice by mail, or
     any defect in such notice, to the holders of any shares designated for
     redemption shall not affect the validity of the proceedings for the
     redemption of any other shares of Seventh Series.
 
          (d) Mechanics of Redemption. Upon surrender in accordance with the
     aforesaid notice of the certificate for any shares so redeemed (duly
     endorsed or accompanied by appropriate instruments of transfer if so
     required by the Corporation), the holders of record of such shares shall be
     entitled to receive the redemption price, without interest, plus full
     cumulative dividends thereon accrued and unpaid up to but excluding such
     redemption date out of funds legally available therefor. If fewer than all
     the shares represented by any such certificate are redeemed, a new
     certificate representing the unredeemed shares shall be issued without cost
     to the holder thereof.
 
          (e) Redemption Funds. On the date of any redemption being made
     pursuant to this Section, the Corporation shall, and at any time after
     notice of such redemption shall have been mailed and before the date of
     redemption the Corporation may, deposit for the benefit of the holders of
     shares of Seventh Series to be redeemed the funds necessary for such
     redemption with a bank or trust company in the City of New York having a
     capital and surplus of at least $1 billion, with instructions to such bank
     or trust company to pay the full redemption amounts as provided herein to
     the holders of shares of Seventh Series upon surrender of certificates for
     such shares; provided, however, that the making of such deposit shall not
     release the Corporation from any of its obligations hereunder. Any moneys
     so deposited by the Corporation and unclaimed at the end of two years from
     the date designated for such redemption shall revert to the general
 
 
                                       72
 
<PAGE>
 
     funds of the Corporation and, upon demand, such bank or trust company shall
     pay over to the Corporation such unclaimed amounts and thereupon such bank
     or trust company shall be relieved of all responsibility in respect thereof
     and any holder of shares of Seventh Series so redeemed shall look only to
     the Corporation for the payment of the full redemption amounts, as provided
     herein.
 
          (f) Rights After Redemption. Notice of redemption having been given as
     aforesaid, upon the deposit pursuant to subsection (e) of the full
     redemption amounts as provided herein in respect of all shares of Seventh
     Series then to be redeemed, notwithstanding that any certificates for such
     shares shall not have been surrendered in accordance with subsection (d),
     from and after the date of redemption designated in the notice of
     redemption: (i) the shares represented thereby shall no longer be deemed
     outstanding, (ii) the rights to receive dividends thereon shall cease to
     accrue, and (iii) all rights of the holders of such shares of Seventh
     Series shall cease and terminate, excepting only the right to receive the
     full redemption amounts as provided herein without interest thereon. If the
     funds deposited are not sufficient for redemption of the shares of the
     Seventh Series that were to be redeemed, then no certificates evidencing
     such shares shall be deemed surrendered and such shares shall remain
     outstanding and the rights of holders of shares of Seventh Series shall
     continue to be those of holders of shares of the Seventh Series.
 
          (g) Restrictions on Redemption and Purchase. Any provision of this
     Section to the contrary notwithstanding, in the event that any quarterly
     dividend payable on the Seventh Series shall be in arrears and until all
     such dividends in arrears shall have been paid or declared and set apart
     for payment, the Corporation shall not redeem any shares of Parity Stock or
     Junior Stock unless all outstanding shares of Seventh Series are
     simultaneously redeemed and shall not purchase or otherwise acquire any
     shares of Seventh Series or any Parity Stock or Junior Stock except (i) by
     conversion into or exchange for stock ranking junior as to dividends or
     (ii) in accordance with a purchase or exchange offer made by the
     Corporation to all holders of record of Seventh Series and such Parity
     Stock upon the same terms as to holders of any series and, in the case of
     offers relating to more than one series, upon such terms as between such
     series as the Board of Directors or, to the extent permitted by applicable
     law, any authorized committee thereof, after consideration of the
     respective annual dividend rates and other relative rights and preferences
     of the respective series of stock, will result in fair and equitable
     treatment as between such series, which determination shall be conclusive.
 
          (h) The Corporation shall redeem the Seventh Series in whole or in
     part in accordance with and to the extent required by Section 6.6 of the
     Restructuring Agreement. With respect to any such redemption, (i) the
     provisions of Section 13.10.5(c) and Section 13.10.5(e) shall not apply and
     (ii) the restriction on rights in Section 13.10.5(f) shall apply from the
     time of the closing of the IPO or other primary offering contemplated by
     Section 6.6 of the Restructuring Agreement.
 
     13.10.6. Advance Notice of Certain Transactions. If the Corporation: (i)
takes any action which would require any adjustment to the Conversion Price or
the number of shares issuable upon a Conversion; (ii) is a party to a
consolidation, merger or binding share exchange, or transfers all or
substantially all of its assets to another person or entity, and any
stockholders of the Corporation must approve the transaction; or (iii)
voluntarily or involuntarily dissolves, liquidates or winds up, then, in any
such event, the Corporation shall give to the holders of the Seventh Series, at
least 10 days prior to any record date or other date set for definitive action
if there shall be no record date, a notice stating the record date for, the
anticipated effective date of such action or event and, if applicable, whether
the Corporation will adjust the Conversion Price or the number of shares
issuable upon a Conversion. Notwithstanding the foregoing, notice shall be given
no later than the time any required notice of such action or event is given to
the holders of PCS Stock.
 
     13.10.7. Reservation of Shares. The Corporation shall at all times keep
available and reserved for the purpose of issuance upon conversion of shares of
Seventh Series the number of shares of its Series 1 PCS Stock and the number of
shares of its Series 2 PCS Stock required for conversion of the outstanding and
any reserved shares of the Seventh Series. The Corporation shall take all
corporate and other actions necessary to ensure that all shares of PCS Stock
issuable on conversion of Seventh Series will upon issuance be duly and validly
authorized and issued, fully paid and nonassessable.
 
     13.10.8. Certain Protective Provisions. If at any time the full cumulative
dividends on shares of the Seventh Series have not been paid or declared and set
aside for payment for the current and all past quarterly dividend periods, the
Corporation (a) will not declare, or pay, or set apart for payment any dividends
or make any distribution, on
 
 
                                       73
 
<PAGE>
 
any class or series of Parity Stock or Junior Stock; (b) will not redeem,
purchase or otherwise acquire, or permit any subsidiary to purchase or otherwise
acquire, any shares of any class or series of Parity Stock or Junior Stock;
provided that notwithstanding the foregoing, the Corporation may at any time
redeem, purchase or otherwise acquire shares of Junior Stock in exchange for, or
out of the net cash proceeds from the substantially simultaneous sale of, other
shares of Junior Stock; and (c) will not redeem pursuant to redemption rights in
the terms of such stock any Parity Stock unless at the same time it redeems all
the shares of the Seventh Series.
 
     13.10.9. Voting Rights. Except as otherwise required by law, each
outstanding share of the Seventh Series shall be entitled to vote on all matters
in respect of which the holders of the common stock of the Corporation are
entitled to vote, and the holders of the Seventh Series shall vote together with
the holders of all other classes or series of capital stock that have general
voting power on all such matters as a single class; provided, however, that the
affirmative vote or consent of two-thirds of the votes to which the holders of
the outstanding shares of the Seventh Series are entitled shall be necessary for
authorizing, effecting or validating the amendment, alteration or repeal of any
or the provisions of the Articles of Incorporation or of any amendment thereto
(including any certificate of designation or any similar document relating to
any series of preferred stock) of the Corporation, which would materially and
adversely affect the voting powers, preferences, rights, powers or privileges,
qualifications, limitations and restrictions of the Seventh Series; provided,
however, that neither (i) the creation, issuance, or increase in the amount of
authorized shares of, any series of preferred stock nor (ii) the consummation of
any transaction described in Section 13.10.3 in which the voting powers,
preferences, rights, powers or privileges, qualifications, limitations and
restrictions of the Seventh Series are addressed as contemplated by such Section
will (in either such case) be deemed to materially and adversely affect such
voting powers, preferences, rights, powers or privileges, qualifications,
limitations and restrictions of the Seventh Series.
 
On each matter to be voted on by the holders of the Seventh Series, each
outstanding share of the Seventh Series is entitled to a number of votes equal
to the number of votes that could be cast with respect to such matter by the
holder of that number of the series of PCS Stock into which such share of
Seventh Series could be converted if the requirements for conversion under
Section 13.10.3(c) had been satisfied by such voting party on the record date
for determining the shareholders of the Corporation who are entitled to vote
with respect to such matter.
