     The Company and all entities managed by Charter collectively utilize a
combination of insurance coverage and self-insurance programs for medical,
dental and workers' compensation claims. Medical coverage provides for $2,435
aggregate stop loss protection and a loss limitation of $100 per person per
year. Workers' compensation coverage provides for $800 aggregate stop loss
protection and a loss limitation of $150 per person per year. Charges are
determined by independent actuaries at the present value of the actuarially
computed present and future liabilities for such benefits. The Company is
allocated its share of the charges monthly based upon its total number of
employees, historical claims and medical cost trend rates. Management considers
this allocation to be reasonable for the operations of the Company. For the
period from January 1, 1998, through December 23, 1998, the Company expensed
$1,950 relating to insurance allocations. During 1997 and 1996, the Company
expensed $1,689 and $2,065, respectively, relating to insurance allocations.
