RENAISSANCE MEDIA GROUP LLC
NOTES TO UNAUDITED PRO FORMA COMBINED STATEMENT OF OPERATIONS
FOR THE YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 1997
The unaudited pro forma combined statement of operations gives effect to the
following pro forma adjustments:
(1) Reflects the reclassification of Renaissance Media's interest income
from revenues to interest expense, net.
(2) Reflects the estimated additional programming expenses, which would
have been incurred if the Systems had been operating under the program
management agreement with Time Warner.
(3) Represents the amortization of debt issuance costs and organization
costs over periods ranging from five to ten years.
(4) Represents the depreciation and amortization of the write up (down) of
property, plant and equipment, franchise assets and goodwill arising
from the allocation of the purchase price to the Systems' assets under
the purchase method of accounting. Pro forma depreciation amounts have
been computed based on an estimate of the composite useful life of such
assets (approximately 7 years), giving consideration to the planned
upgrades of the cable infrastructure, which has resulted in a shorter
composite useful life of such assets compared to Time Warner
(approximately 11 years). Pro forma amortization amounts have been
computed based on an estimate of the useful lives of franchise assets
and goodwill (approximately 15 years and 25 years, respectively) using
Renaissance Media's accounting policy estimates, which differ from the
estimated useful lives of franchise assets and goodwill previously used
by Time Warner (over periods up to 20 years and over periods up to 40
years, respectively). The net adjustment was computed as follows:
Pro forma depreciation of property, plant and equipment....... $ 9,514
Pro forma amortization of franchise assets and goodwill....... 16,138
Elimination of historical depreciation and amortization....... (19,317)
Pro forma increase in depreciation and amortization........... $ 6,335
(5) Reflects the following interest expense that would have been incurred
based on the Acquisition financing:
Interest on the Term Loans at an assumed weighted average
rate of 8.11% (including commitment fees of $200)............ $ 8,877
Interest on the Notes......................................... 10,250
Amortization of interest rate cap agreement................... 51
For each .25% change in the assumed interest rate on the Term Loans,
pro forma interest expense would change by approximately $275.
(6) Represents elimination of income tax expense because the Company will
be treated as a partnership for federal income tax purposes.
