calculated on a separate company basis. The components of the provision
(benefit) for income taxes are as follows:

  The Combined Systems did not, and will not, have a tax sharing agreement
with either Time Warner, TWI Cable or CVI. Therefore, the Combined Systems
have not and will not be compensated for the utilization of the Combined
Systems' tax losses, by Time Warner, TWI Cable or CVI. In addition, the
Combined Systems have not and will not be required to make payments to either
Time Warner or TWI Cable for the current tax provision of the Combined
Systems.
       
  The differences between the income tax provision (benefit) expected at the
U.S. federal statutory income tax rate and the total income tax provision
(benefit) are due to nondeductible goodwill amortization and state taxes.
 
  Significant components of the Combined Systems' deferred tax assets and
liabilities, as calculated on a separate company basis, are as follows:
