1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION
 
THE CHARTER TRANSACTIONS
 
     InterMedia Partners, a California limited partnership ("IP-I"), and
InterMedia Capital Partners IV, L.P., a California limited partnership,
("ICP-IV", together with IP-I, "InterMedia") are affiliated through common
control and management. Robin Media Group, Inc. , a Nevada corporation, ("RMG")
is a majority owned subsidiary of ICP-IV. On April 20, 1999 InterMedia and
certain of its affiliates entered into agreements (the "Agreements") with
affiliates of Charter Communications, Inc. ("Charter") to sell and exchange
certain of their cable television systems ("the Charter Transactions").
 
     Specifically, ICP-IV and its affiliates have agreed to sell certain of
their cable television systems in Tennessee and Gainesville, Georgia through a
combination of asset sales and the sale of their equity interests in RMG, and to
exchange their systems in and around Greenville and Spartanburg, South Carolina
for Charter systems located in Indiana, Kentucky, Utah and Montana. Immediately
upon Charter's acquisition of RMG, IP-I will exchange its cable television
systems in Athens, Georgia, Asheville and Marion, North Carolina and Cleveland,
Tennessee for RMG's cable television systems located in middle Tennessee.
 
     The Charter Transactions are expected to close during the third or fourth
quarter of 1999. The cable systems retained by Charter upon consummation of the
Charter Transactions, together with RMG, are referred to as the "InterMedia
Cable Systems," or the "Systems".
 
PRESENTATION
 
     The Systems being sold or exchanged do not individually or collectively
comprise a separate legal entity. Accordingly, the accompanying condensed
combined financial statements have been carved-out from the historical
accounting records of InterMedia.
 
     The accompanying unaudited interim condensed combined financial statements
have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles
for interim financial information. Accordingly, certain footnote disclosures
have been condensed or omitted. In the management's opinion, the interim
unaudited combined financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of
only normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the
Systems' financial position as of March 31, 1999 and their results of operations
and cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 1999 and 1998. The results
of operations and cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 1999 are not
necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the year ending
December 31, 1999. These condensed combined financial statements should be read
in conjunction with the Systems' audited combined financial statements and notes
thereto for the year ended December 31, 1998.
 
CARVE-OUT METHODOLOGY
 
     Throughout the periods covered by the condensed combined financial
statements, the individual cable systems were operated and accounted for
separately. However, the Charter Transactions exclude certain systems (the
"Excluded Systems") which were operated as part of the Marion, North Carolina
and western Tennessee systems throughout 1998 and 1999. For purposes of carving
out and excluding the results of operations and financial position of the
