(14) Restricted Payments to pay all or a portion of the consideration payable for any Investment that would have been permitted to be made by the Issuers under this Indenture including, without limitation the true up payments pursuant to the Bright House Acquisition Agreement; provided that the assets or Equity Interests acquired in such Investment (to the extent of amounts distributed by the Issuers to make such Investment) are promptly contributed to the capital of the Company;

(15) so long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or would result therefrom, any Restricted Payments; provided that the Leverage Ratio, after giving pro forma effect to such Restricted Payment, is less than or equal to 3.50:1.00; and

(16) any distributions to any Parent to permit such Parent to pay (i) attorneys’ fees, investment banking fees, accountants’ fees, underwriting discounts and commissions and other customary fees and expenses (including any commitment and other fees payable in connection with credit facilities) actually incurred in connection with any issuance, sale or incurrence by such Parent of Equity Interests or Indebtedness, any exchange of securities or a tender for outstanding debt securities or any actual or proposed Investment, (ii) the costs and expenses of any offer to exchange privately placed securities in respect of the foregoing for publicly registered securities or any similar concept having a comparable purpose or (iii) other administrative expenses (including legal, accounting, other professional fees and costs, printing and other such fees and expenses) incurred in the ordinary course of business, in an aggregate amount in the case of this clause (iii) not to exceed $5.0 million in any fiscal year.

The amount of all Restricted Payments (other than cash) shall be the fair market value on the date of the Restricted Payment of the asset(s) or securities proposed to be transferred or issued by the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries pursuant to the Restricted Payment. The fair market value of any assets or securities that are required to be valued by this covenant shall be determined by the Board of Directors of the Company, whose resolution with respect thereto shall be delivered to the Trustee. Such Board of Directors’ determination must be based upon an opinion or appraisal issued by an accounting, appraisal or investment banking firm of national standing if the fair market value exceeds $100.0 million.

Not later than the date of making any Restricted Payment other than in the form of cash having a fair market value in excess of $75.0 million, the Issuers shall deliver to the Trustee an Officers’ Certificate stating that such Restricted Payment is permitted and setting forth the basis upon which the calculations required by this Section 4.07 were computed, together with a copy of any fairness opinion or appraisal required by this Supplemental Indenture.

For purposes of determining compliance with this Section 4.07, in the event that a Restricted Payment, when made, met the criteria of more than one of the categories described in clauses (1) through (16) above, or was permitted pursuant to the first paragraph of this Section 4.07, the Issuers will be entitled to classify such Restricted Payment (or portion thereof) on the date of its payment or later reclassify such Restricted Payment (or portion thereof) in any manner that complies with this Section 4.07.
