On January 26, 2011, Internap Network Services Corporation (the “Company”) announced the elimination of the Chief Administrative Officer position. As a result, Richard P. Dobb’s employment terminated effective February 1, 2011 (the “Separation Date”).

Pursuant to the terms of a General Release, Separation and Settlement Agreement between the Company and Mr. Dobb effective as of February 14, 2011 (the “Separation Agreement”), Mr. Dobb will receive (1) a cash payment of $280,000 to be made in 12 equal monthly installments and (2) if he so elects, continued health, dental and vision insurance coverage under the Company’s group health plan for 18 months from the Separation Date at his cost. This separation pay is consistent with the terms of the Employment Security Plan which the Company has previously disclosed and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

All unvested equity grants previously made to Mr. Dobb expired on his Separation Date. The Separation Agreement also provides, among other things, that Mr. Dobb will have certain non-disclosure and non-solicitation obligations.
