RECENT ACQUISITIONS
 
     In the second, third and fourth quarters of 1999, we completed eight
acquisitions of cable systems. One of these acquisitions included the exchange
of certain of our cable systems and a commitment to transfer an additional cable
system. The combined fair market value of these systems is $0.4 billion. For the
year ended December 31, 1998, the systems we acquired had revenues of
approximately $527.7 million. The following table is a breakdown of our recent
acquisitions:

---------------
(a) Represents the number of customers served by cable systems that we agreed to
    transfer to InterMedia in connection with the InterMedia acquisition. This
    number includes 30,000 customers served by an Indiana cable system that we
    did not transfer at the time of the InterMedia closing because some of the
    necessary regulatory approvals were still pending. We are obligated to
    transfer this system to InterMedia upon receipt of regulatory approvals. See
    "Business -- Acquisitions".
 
PENDING ACQUISITIONS
 
     In addition to the recent acquisitions described above, since the beginning
of 1999, we have entered into agreements to acquire additional cable systems.
