       UNAUDITED SUMMARY HISTORICAL COMBINED FINANCIAL AND OPERATING DATA
 
   
     The Unaudited Summary Historical Combined Financial and Operating Data for
the years ended December 31, 1996, 1997 and 1998 have been derived from the
separate financial statements of Charter Holdings, CCA Group, and CharterComm
Holdings, which have been audited by Arthur Andersen LLP, independent public
accountants, and are included elsewhere in this prospectus. The combined
financial and operating data represent the sum of the results of each of our
operating subsidiaries. Each of the companies was managed by Charter
Communications, Inc. under the terms of its respective management agreement with
such company during the presented periods. Since our operating subsidiaries were
under common management, we believe presenting combined financial information of
these companies is informative.
    
 
   
     As a result of the acquisition of us by Paul G. Allen, we have applied
purchase accounting, whereby all separately identifiable assets and liabilities
are recorded at fair value with the excess purchase price recorded as
franchises, which had the effect of increasing total assets, total debt and
members' equity as of December 23, 1998. In addition, we have retroactively
restated our financial statements to include the results of operations of Marcus
Cable for the period from December 24, 1998 through December 31, 1998, and the
balance sheet of Marcus Cable as of December 31, 1998. As a result of our
acquisition by Mr. Allen and our merger with Marcus Holdings, we believe that
the periods on or prior to December 23, 1998 are not comparable to the periods
after December 23, 1998.
