                                 JUNE 30, 1998


     Renaissance Media Group LLC ("Group") was formed on March 13, 1998 by
Renaissance Media Holdings LLC ("Holdings").  Holdings formed Renaissance Media
Capital Corporation on March 12, 1998.  On March 20, 1998, Holdings contributed
to Group its membership interests in two wholly-owned subsidiaries; Renaissance
Media (Louisiana) LLC ("Louisiana") and Renaissance Media (Tennessee) LLC
("Tennessee), which were formed on January 7, 1998.  Louisiana and Tennessee
acquired a 76% interest and 24% interest, respectively, in Renaissance Media LLC
("Media") from Morgan Stanley Capital Partners III, Inc. on February 13, 1998 at
the same nominal amount through an acquisition of entities under common control
accounted for as if it were a pooling of interests, as a result of which Media
became a subsidiary of Holdings. Group and its aforementioned subsidiaries are
collectively referred to as the "Company".  On April 9, 1998, the Company
acquired (the "Acquisition") six cable television systems (the "systems") from
TWI Cable, Inc. ("TWI Cable") a subsidiary of Time Warner Inc. ("Time Warner").
See Note 4.  Prior to this Acquisition, the Company had no operations other than
start-up related activities.


     The balance sheet at December 31, 1997 sets forth the combined balance
sheets of Holdings and Media as (i) management believes that the combined
balance sheet presents the financial position of what became the ultimate legal
entity structure upon the closing of the Acquisition (see Note 4) and the
offering of the Senior Discount Notes (see Note 5), (ii) Media and Holdings were
the only legal operating entities in existence at December 31, 1997 with any
assets, liabilities, revenues or expenses (iii) Media and Holdings were under
common control, and (iv) subsequent to December 31, 1997, Media became a wholly-
owned subsidiary of Group.  The financial statements presented herein for
periods subsequent to December 31, 1997 do not include interest income earned
and expenses incurred by Holdings.

     The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in accordance with
generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and
with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X.
Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required
