stockholders must be submitted in writing to New Charters Corporate Secretary at the address stated above not less than 45 days nor more than 70 days prior to the first anniversary of the date on which New Charter first mailed proxy materials for the preceding years annual meeting of stockholders. Therefore, to be presented at New Charters 2016 annual meeting of stockholders, such a proposal must be received by New Charter on or after January 6, 2016 but no later than February 12, 2016. However, in the event that New Charter elects to hold its next annual meeting more than 30 days before or after April 28, 2016, the anniversary of New Charters 2015 annual meeting, such stockholder proposals would have to be received by New Charter not earlier than 120 days prior to the next annual meeting date and not later than 90 days prior to the next annual meeting date.
Such notice must include: (1) for a nomination for director, all information relating to such person that is required to be disclosed in a proxy for election of directors; (2) as to any other business, a description of the proposed business, the text of the proposal, the reasons therefore, and any material interest the stockholder may have in that business; and (3) certain information regarding the stockholder making the proposal. These requirements are separate from the requirements a stockholder must meet to have a proposal included in New Charters proxy statement.
Any stockholder desiring a copy of the Charter bylaws (which are substantially similar to the bylaws of New Charter once the New Charter bylaws become effective) will be furnished one without charge upon written request to Charters Corporate Secretary at 400 Atlantic Street, Stamford, Connecticut 06901. A copy of the amended and restated bylaws was filed as an exhibit to Charters Current Report on Form 8-K filed on December 4, 2009, and is available at the SECs website at www.sec.gov.
The window for proposals for TWCs 2015 annual meeting of stockholders is now closed.

Any stockholder nominations or proposals for business intended to be presented at TWCs 2016 annual meeting of stockholders must comply with the notice procedures set forth in TWCs bylaws and be submitted to TWC as set forth below.
Eligible stockholders interested in submitting a proposal for inclusion in the proxy materials for TWCs 2016 annual meeting of stockholders may do so by following the procedures prescribed in Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act.
