SEC Filings

AVALON CABLE OF MICHIGAN INC/ filed this Form S-4/A on 07/22/1999
Entire Document
   In the normal course of business, there are various legal proceedings
outstanding. In the opinion of management, these proceedings will not have a
material adverse effect on the financial condition or results of operations of
the Company.
12. Related Party Transactions and Balances
   During 1998, Avalon New England received $3,341 from Avalon Holdings. In
consideration for this amount, Avalon New England executed a note payable to
Avalon Holdings. This note is recorded as note payable-affiliate on the balance
sheet at December 31, 1998. Interest accrues at the rate of 5.57% per year and
Avalon New England has recorded accrued interest on this note of $100 at
December 31, 1998.
13. Subsequent Event
   In May 1999, the Company signed an agreement with Charter Communications,
Inc. ("Charter Communications") under which Charter Communications agreed to
purchase Avalon Cable LLC's cable television systems and assume some of their
debt. The acquisition by Charter Communications is subject to regulatory
approvals. The Company expects to consummate this transaction in the fourth
quarter of 1999.
   This agreement, if closed, would constitute a change in control under the
Indenture pursuant to which the Senior Subordinated Notes and the Senior
Discount Notes (collectively, the "Notes") were issued. The Indenture provides
that upon the occurrence of a change of control of the Company (a "Change of
Control") each holder of the Notes has the right to require the Company to
purchase all or any part (equal to $1,000 or an integral multiple thereof) of
such holder's Notes at an offer price in cash equal to 101% of the aggregate
principal amount thereon (or 101% of the accreted value for the Senior Discount
Notes as of the date of purchase if prior to the full accretion date) plus
accrued and unpaid interest and Liquidated Damages (as defined in the
Indenture) thereof, if any, to the date of purchase.
   This agreement, if closed, would represent a Change of Control which, on the
closing date, constitutes an event of default under the Credit Facility giving
the lender the right to terminate the credit commitment and declare all amounts
outstanding immediately due and payable. Charter Communications has agreed to
repay all amounts due under the Credit Facility or cause all events of default
under the Credit Facility arising from the Change of Control to be waived.
