INTERMEDIA CAPITAL PARTNERS IV, L.P.)

1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION
THE CHARTER TRANSACTIONS
InterMedia Partners, a California limited partnership ("IP-I"), and
InterMedia Capital Partners IV, L.P., a California limited partnership,
("ICP-IV", together with IP-I, "InterMedia") are affiliated through common
control and management. Robin Media Group, Inc., a Nevada corporation, ("RMG")
is a majority owned subsidiary of ICP-IV. On April 20, 1999, InterMedia and
certain of its affiliates entered into agreements (the "Agreements") with
affiliates of Charter Communications, Inc. ("Charter") to sell and exchange
certain of their cable television systems ("the Charter Transactions"). The
Charter Transactions closed on October 1, 1999.
Specifically, ICP-IV and its affiliates sold certain of their cable
television systems in Tennessee and Gainesville, Georgia through a combination
of asset sales and the sale of their equity interests in RMG, and exchanged
their systems in and around Greenville and Spartanburg, South Carolina for
Charter systems located in Indiana, Kentucky, Utah and Montana. Immediately upon
Charter's acquisition of RMG, IP-I exchanged its cable television systems in
Athens, Georgia, Asheville and Marion, North Carolina and Cleveland, Tennessee
for RMG's cable television systems located in middle Tennessee.
The cable systems retained by Charter upon consummation of the Charter
Transactions, together with RMG, are referred to as the "InterMedia Cable
Systems," or the "Systems."
The Systems sold or exchanged do not individually or collectively comprise
a separate legal entity. Accordingly, the accompanying condensed combined
financial statements have been carved-out from the historical accounting records
of InterMedia prior to the close of the Charter Transactions.
The accompanying unaudited interim condensed combined financial statements
have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles
for interim financial information. Accordingly, certain footnote disclosures
have been condensed or omitted. In the management's opinion, the interim
unaudited combined financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of
only normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the
Systems' financial position as of September 30, 1999, and their results of
operations and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 1999 and 1998.
The results of operations and cash flows for these periods are not necessarily
indicative of results that may be expected for the year ending December 31,
1999. These condensed combined financial statements should be read in
conjunction with the Systems' audited combined financial statements and notes
thereto for the year ended December 31, 1998.
Throughout the periods covered by the condensed combined financial
statements, the individual cable systems were operated and accounted for
separately. However, the Charter Transactions exclude certain systems (the
"Excluded Systems") which were operated as part of the Marion, North Carolina
and western Tennessee systems throughout 1998 and 1999. For
