|CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS, INC. /MO/ filed this Form 425 on 06/29/2015|
Will combining the three companies result in a company that is too big?
No. Adding Charter only increases the already affiliated TWC and BHN by a relatively small amount. Today, TWC provides programming and other services to BHN systems. New Charter will provide many consumer benefits, and the combined company will not only be significantly smaller than a combined Comcast-TWC would have been, it will be smaller than standalone Comcast is today and a smaller video provider than DirecTV (and much smaller than a combined AT&T/DirecTV).
Does John Malone’s programming and other media interests create a conflict of interest for New Charter?
No. Dr. Malone’s interest in New Charter will be through his investment in Liberty Broadband, a publicly traded company, which will have a minority interest in New Charter and three nominees on its 13-member board of directors. Those nominees will not be involved in any programming decisions in which they have an interest. Dr. Malone’s investment in programming networks, such as Discovery and Starz, is through a different publicly traded company with no relation to Charter.
