NOTES TO CONDENSED COMBINED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- CONTINUED
(DOLLARS IN THOUSANDS)
statements present only the debt and related interest expense of RMG, which is
to be assumed and repaid by Charter pursuant to the Charter Transactions. See
Note 3 -- "Note Payable to InterMedia Partners IV, L.P." Debt, unamortized debt
issue costs and interest expense related to the financing of the cable systems
not owned by RMG have not been allocated to the InterMedia Cable Systems. As
such, the level of debt, unamortized debt issue costs and related interest
expense presented in the condensed combined financial statements are not
representative of the debt that would be required or interest expense incurred
if the InterMedia Cable Systems were a separate legal entity.
USE OF ESTIMATES IN THE PREPARATION OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally
accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and
assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and
disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial
statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the
reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

The exchange resulted in a gain of $26,218 calculated as the difference
