On April 6, 2015, CCH I, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and subsidiary of Charter Communications, Inc. (“Charter”), filed a Post-Effective Amendment to its Registration Statement on Form S-4 (File No. 333-200809) (the “Amendment”) in connection with the Charter’s previously announced transactions with Comcast Corporation. The Amendment is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1






99.1    Post-Effective Amendment to Registration Statement on Form S-4 of CCH I, LLC, filed on April 6, 2015.


This communication does not constitute an offer to sell or solicitation of an offer to buy any securities or a solicitation of any vote or approval. Charter Communications, Inc. (“Charter”) expects to file a proxy statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in connection with the Bright House Transaction (as defined in the Amendment). This material is not a substitute for the proxy statement or for any other document which Charter may file with the SEC and send to Charter’s stockholders in connection with the Bright House Transaction. INVESTORS AND SECURITY HOLDERS OF CHARTER ARE URGED TO READ THE PROXY STATEMENT AND OTHER DOCUMENTS FILED WITH THE SEC CAREFULLY IN THEIR ENTIRETY WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE BECAUSE THEY WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE BRIGHT HOUSE TRANSACTION. Investors and security holders will be able to obtain free copies of the proxy statement (when available) and other documents filed with the SEC by Charter through the web site maintained by the SEC at http://www.sec.gov. Copies of the documents filed with the SEC by Charter will be available free of charge on Charter’s website at charter.com, in the “Investor and News Center” near the bottom of the page, or by contacting Charter’s Investor Relations Department at 203-905-7955.


Charter and certain of its directors and executive officers may be deemed to be participants in any solicitation with respect to the Bright House Transaction under the rules of the SEC. Security holders may obtain information regarding the names, affiliations and interests of Charter’s directors and executive officers in Charter’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, which was filed with the SEC on February 24, 2015, and its proxy statement for the 2015 Annual Meeting, which was filed with the SEC on March 18, 2015. These documents can be obtained free of charge from the sources indicated above. Additional information regarding the interests of these participants in the proxy solicitation and a description of their direct and indirect interests, by security holdings or otherwise, will also be included in any proxy statement and other relevant materials to be filed with the SEC when they become available.


This communication includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), regarding, among other things, our plans, strategies and prospects, both business and financial. Although we believe that our plans, intentions and expectations reflected in or suggested by these forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot assure you that we will achieve or realize these plans, intentions or expectations. Forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions including, without limitation, the factors described under “Risk Factors” from time to time in our filings with the SEC. Many

of the forward-looking statements contained in this presentation may be identified by the use of forward-looking words such as “believe”, “expect”, “anticipate”, “should”, “planned”, “will”, “may”, “intend”, “estimated”, “aim”, “on track”, “target”, “opportunity”, “tentative”, “positioning”, “designed”, “create”, “predict”, “project”, “seek”, “would”, “could”, “potential”, “continue”, “ongoing”, “upside”, “increases” and “potential”, among others. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements we make in this presentation are set forth in other reports or documents that we file from time to time with the SEC, and include, but are not limited to:


  the ultimate outcome of the proposed transactions between Charter and A/N (as defined in the Amendment) including the possibility that such transactions may not occur if closing conditions are not satisfied;


  if any such transactions were to occur, the ultimate outcome and results of integrating operations and application of Charter’s operating strategies to the acquired assets and the ultimate ability to realize synergies at the levels currently expected as well as potential programming dis-synergies;


  the impact of the proposed transactions on our stock price and future operating results, including due to transaction and integration costs, increased interest expense, business disruption, and diversion of management time and attention;


  the reduction in our current stockholders’ percentage ownership and voting interest as a result of the proposed transaction;


  the increase in indebtedness as a result of the proposed transactions, which will increase interest expenses and may decrease our operating flexibility;


  our ability to sustain and grow revenues and cash flow from operations by offering video, Internet, voice, advertising and other services to residential and commercial customers, to adequately meet the customer experience demands in our markets and to maintain and grow our customer base, particularly in the face of increasingly aggressive competition, the need for innovation and the related capital expenditures;


  the impact of competition from other market participants, including but not limited to incumbent telephone companies, direct broadcast satellite operators, wireless broadband and telephone providers, digital subscriber line (“DSL”) providers, video provided over the Internet and providers of advertising over the Internet;


  general business conditions, economic uncertainty or downturn, high unemployment levels and the level of activity in the housing sector;


  our ability to obtain programming at reasonable prices or to raise prices to offset, in whole or in part, the effects of higher programming costs (including retransmission consents);


  the development and deployment of new products and technologies including our cloud based user interface, Spectrum Guide®, and downloadable security for set-top boxes;



  the effects of governmental regulation on our business or potential business combination transactions;


  the availability and access, in general, of funds to meet our debt obligations prior to or when they become due and to fund our operations and necessary capital expenditures, either through (i) cash on hand, (ii) free cash flow, or (iii) access to the capital or credit markets; and


  our ability to comply with all covenants in our indentures and credit facilities, any violation of which, if not cured in a timely manner, could trigger a default of our other obligations under cross-default provisions

All forward-looking statements attributable to us or any person acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement. We are under no duty or obligation to update any of the forward-looking statements after the date of this communication.




Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, Charter Communications, Inc. has duly caused this Current Report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
