Double-digit Pro Forma Revenue and Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA Growth for the Fourth Consecutive Quarter

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 8, 2007--Charter Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHTR) (along with its subsidiaries, the "Company" or "Charter") today reported its third-quarter 2007 financial and operating results.

Highlights:

  • Third-quarter pro forma revenues of $1.526 billion grew 11.2% year over year and actual revenue grew 9.9%, driven by significant increases in telephone and high-speed Internet (HSI) revenues.


  • Third-quarter pro forma adjusted EBITDA of $511 million increased 10.6% year over year and actual adjusted EBITDA grew 9.2%. (Adjusted EBITDA is defined in the "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Metrics" section and is reconciled to net cash flows from operating activities in the addendum of this news release.)


  • Total ARPU (average revenue per customer) increased 13.0% year over year, driven by increased sales of The Charter Bundle(TM) and advanced services growth.


  • In October, Charter successfully completed a convertible note exchange offer, extending 88% of the Company's convertible senior notes due 2009.

"We are pleased to be announcing double-digit pro forma revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth for the fourth consecutive quarter," said Neil Smit, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We will remain disciplined in our operating, marketing and capital investments targeted to continue growing the business."

In addition to the actual results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2006 and 2007, we have provided in this release pro forma results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2006 and 2007. We believe these pro forma results facilitate meaningful analysis of the results of operations. Pro forma results in this release reflect (i) our sales of assets in 2006, (ii) our sales of assets in January 2007 and May 2007, and (iii) our acquisition of assets in August 2007 as if they had occurred as of January 1, 2006. Pro forma income statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2006 and September 30, 2007 and pro forma customer statistics as of June 30, 2007, December 31, 2006 and September 30, 2006 are provided in the addendum of this news release.

Key Operating Results

All of the following customer growth and ARPU statistics are presented on a pro forma basis. Charter added a net 130,900 revenue generating units ("RGUs") during the third quarter of 2007, and year to date has added 629,600 RGUs. As of September 30, 2007, Charter served approximately 5,655,900 customers. The Company's 11,672,500 RGUs were comprised of 5,347,800 analog video, 2,882,900 digital video, 2,639,200 HSI, and 802,600 telephone customers.

  • Telephone customers increased by approximately 102,300 in the third quarter of 2007. Year to date, telephone customers increased 356,800, compared to 203,600 telephone customer net additions in the first nine months of 2006.


  • HSI customers increased by approximately 53,000 in the third quarter of 2007. Year to date, HSI customers increased 237,300, compared to 245,600 HSI customer net additions in the first nine months of 2006.


  • Digital video customers increased by approximately 15,800 in the third quarter of 2007. Year to date, digital video customers increased 88,500, compared to 130,000 digital video net additions in the first nine months of 2006.


  • Analog video customers decreased by approximately 40,200 in the third quarter of 2007. Year to date, analog video customers decreased 53,000, compared to a net loss of 27,800 analog video customers in the first nine months of 2006.

Third-quarter 2007 total ARPU increased 13.0%, with video ARPU increasing 4.3% and HSI ARPU increasing 6.1%, as compared to the same period in 2006, driven primarily by advanced services and upgrading customers to higher Internet speeds and programming tiers.

We now serve 802,600 telephone customers - more than double the 339,600 customers served as of September 30, 2006. Charter Telephone(R) was available to approximately 8.3 million homes as of September 30, 2007, and as of October 31, 2007, we passed an additional 300,000 homes. Charter will continue to focus on driving deeper penetration of telephone service and bundled service packages, while further expanding our telephone footprint. Charter expects telephone service to reach between 9.5 million and 10 million homes passed by the end of 2008.

Third-Quarter Results - Pro Forma

Third-quarter pro forma revenues were $1.526 billion, an increase of $154 million, or 11.2% - Charter's fifth consecutive quarter of double-digit pro forma revenue growth. A significant portion of the increase resulted from increases in telephone and HSI revenues.

Pro forma telephone revenues increased by $57 million to $94 million from $37 million a year ago, as our telephone customer base has more than doubled since last year. Pro forma HSI revenues increased $55 million, up 20.8% year over year, due to significant ARPU increases and customer growth. Pro forma video revenues increased $20 million, up 2.4% year over year, primarily as a result of advanced services growth. Pro forma commercial revenues increased $11 million, or 14.5%, as Charter now markets the video, HSI, and telephone services bundle to small and medium-sized businesses.

Pro forma operating expenses, which include programming, advertising sales, and service costs, increased 12.0% year over year, reflecting annual programming rate increases and growth of the Company's telephone business and other advanced services. Selling, general, and administrative expenses increased by 10.5% compared to the year-ago quarter, reflecting expenditures to further improve the customer experience and increased marketing expenditures targeted at revenue growth and retaining customers.

Pro forma adjusted EBITDA totaled $511 million for the third quarter of 2007, an increase of 10.6% compared to the year-ago quarter - Charter's fourth consecutive quarter of double-digit, year over year, pro forma adjusted EBITDA growth.

Pro forma net cash flows from operating activities for the third quarter of 2007 were $210 million, compared to $138 million for the third quarter of 2006.

Nine-Month Results - Pro Forma

Nine months ended September 30, 2007 pro forma revenues were $4.451 billion, an increase of $440 million, or 11.0%, primarily related to increases in telephone and HSI revenues.

Pro forma telephone revenues increased to $236 million from $86 million a year ago. Pro forma HSI revenues increased $163 million, up 21.4% year over year. Pro forma video revenues increased $77 million, up 3.1% year over year. Pro forma commercial revenues increased $31 million, or 14.1%.

Pro forma operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2007, which include programming, advertising sales, and service costs, increased 9.6% year over year; and selling, general, and administrative expenses increased by 13.0%.

Pro forma adjusted EBITDA totaled $1.546 billion for the first nine months of 2007, an increase of 11.5% compared to the first nine months of last year.

Pro forma net cash flows from operating activities for the first nine months of 2007 were $327 million, compared to $303 million for the first nine months of 2006.

Third-Quarter Results - Actual

Third-quarter revenues increased 9.9% and operating costs and expenses increased 10.2% compared to year-ago results.

Operating income from continuing operations increased to $107 million in the third quarter of 2007 from $66 million in the third quarter of 2006, primarily due to revenue growth exceeding operating costs and expense growth by $43 million.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2007 was $407 million, or $1.10 per common share. For the third quarter of 2006, Charter reported a net loss of $133 million and loss per common share of $0.41. Despite revenues increasing at a higher rate than operating costs and expenses, net loss increased primarily due to non-recurring gains in the third quarter of 2006 when the Company recognized a $128 million gain on a debt exchange and a $200 million gain on the sale of discontinued operations.

Expenditures for property, plant, and equipment for the third quarter of 2007 were $311 million, compared to third-quarter 2006 expenditures of $256 million. The increase in capital expenditures primarily reflects year-over-year increases in customer premise equipment, support capital, and scalable infrastructure.

Nine-Months Results - Actual

Revenues for the first nine months of 2007 were $4.449 billion, an increase of 8.8% year over year. Operating costs and expenses were $2.903 billion, an increase of 8.3% compared to year-ago actual results. Adjusted EBITDA for the first nine months of 2007 was $1.546 billion, a 9.6% increase compared to the year-ago period.

Operating income from continuing operations more than doubled to $463 million in the first nine months of 2007, compared to $204 million in the first nine months of 2006. The primary drivers of the increase include revenue growth exceeding operating costs and expense growth during the period by $135 million, and depreciation and amortization expenses declining by $25 million year over year. In addition, asset impairment charges of $159 million were recorded in the first nine months of 2006, while similar charges of $56 million were taken in the 2007 nine-month period.

Net loss for the first nine months of 2007 was $1.148 billion, or $3.12 per common share. For the first nine months of 2006, Charter reported a net loss of $974 million and loss per common share of $3.04.

Expenditures for property, plant, and equipment for the first nine months of 2007 were $890 million, compared to $795 million in the first nine months of 2006. As previously disclosed, Charter expects that approximately three-quarters of its projected $1.2 billion of 2007 capital expenditures will be directed toward success-based activities.

Net cash flows from operating activities for the first nine months of 2007 were $327 million, compared to $348 million for the first nine months of 2006.

As of September 30, 2007, Charter had $19.7 billion in long-term debt and $59 million of cash on hand. Charter expects that cash on hand, cash flows from operating activities, and amounts available under its credit facilities will be adequate to meet its cash needs through 2008.

Transactions

In October of 2007 Charter successfully completed an exchange of $364 million of our existing convertible senior notes due 2009 into $479 million of new convertible senior notes due in 2027, subject to earlier redemption at the option of the Company or repurchase at the option of the holders. This transaction resulted in 88% of the convertible senior notes being exchanged, leaving outstanding $49 million of convertible senior notes due 2009.

Also, effective November 1, 2007, Charter swapped its West Sacramento, CA cable system serving 19,000 analog video customers for WaveDivision's Los Angeles area cable systems serving the communities of Cerritos and Ventura, serving 14,200 analog video customers. This trade reflects the Company's continued effort to further strengthen its strategic clusters.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Metrics

The Company uses certain measures that are not defined by GAAP to evaluate various aspects of its business. Adjusted EBITDA, pro forma adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow are non-GAAP financial measures and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, net cash flows from operating activities reported in accordance with GAAP. These terms, as defined by Charter, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income from operations before, depreciation and amortization, asset impairment charges, stock compensation expense, and other operating expenses such as special charges and loss on sale or retirement of assets. As such, it eliminates the significant non-cash depreciation and amortization expense that results from the capital-intensive nature of the Company's businesses as well as other non-cash or non-recurring items, and is unaffected by the Company's capital structure or investment activities. Adjusted EBITDA and pro forma adjusted EBITDA are liquidity measures used by Company management and its Board of Directors to measure the Company's ability to fund operations and its financing obligations. For this reason, it is a significant component of Charter's annual incentive compensation program. However, this measure is limited in that it does not reflect the periodic costs of certain capitalized tangible and intangible assets used in generating revenues and the cash cost of financing for the Company. Company management evaluates these costs through other financial measures.

Free cash flow is defined as net cash flows from operating activities, less capital expenditures and changes in accrued expenses related to capital expenditures.

The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA, pro forma adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow provide information useful to investors in assessing Charter's ability to service its debt, fund operations, and make additional investments with internally generated funds. In addition, adjusted EBITDA generally correlates to the leverage ratio calculation under the Company's credit facilities or outstanding notes to determine compliance with the covenants contained in the facilities and notes (all such documents have been previously filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission). Adjusted EBITDA and pro forma adjusted EBITDA, as presented, include management fee expenses in the amount of $32 million for each of the three months ended September 30, 2007 and 2006, respectively, which expense amounts are excluded for the purposes of calculating compliance with leverage covenants.

 third quarter of 2006, January 2007 and May 2007, and the acquisition
 of cable systems in August 2007 as if they occurred as of January 1,

 adjustments for financing transactions completed by Charter during

 assumptions that we believe are reasonable under
the circumstances. The financial data required allocation of certain
 revenues and expenses and such information has been presented for
 comparative purposes and is not intended to provide any indication of
 what our actual financial position, or results of operations would
 have been had the transactions described above been completed on the
 dates indicated or to project our results of operations for any
 future date.

Pro forma operating statistics reflect the sales of cable systems in
 the third quarter of 2006, January 2007 and May 2007, and the
 acquisition of cable systems in August 2007 as if such transactions
 had occurred as of the last day of the respective period for all
 periods presented. The pro forma statements of operations do not
 include adjustments for financing transactions completed by Charter
 during the periods presented or certain other dispositions of assets
 because those transactions did not significantly impact Charter's
 adjusted EBITDA. However, all transactions completed in the third
 quarter of 2006, January 2007, May 2007 and August 2007 have been
 reflected in the operating statistics.

At June 30, 2007 actual analog video customers, digital video
 customers, high-speed Internet customers and telephone customers were
 5,376,800, 2,866,000, 2,583,200 and 700,300, respectively.

At December 31, 2006 actual analog video customers, digital video
 customers, high-speed Internet customers and telephone customers were
 5,433,300, 2,808,400, 2,402,200 and 445,800, respectively.

At September 30, 2006 actual analog video customers, digital video
 customers, high-speed Internet customers and telephone customers were
 5,476,600, 2,767,900, 2,343,200 and 339,600, respectively.

See footnotes to unaudited summary of operating statistics on page 6
 of this addendum.
(a) "Customers" include all persons our corporate billing records show
 as receiving service (regardless of their payment status), except for
 complimentary accounts (such as our employees). In addition, at
 September 30, 2007, June 30, 2007, December 31, 2006 and September
 30, 2006, "customers" include approximately 33,800, 31,300, 32,700
 and 43,500 persons whose accounts were over 60 days past due in
 payment, approximately 5,700, 3,800, 5,400 and 8,400 persons whose
 accounts were over 90 days past due in payment and approximately
 2,100, 1,500, 2,700 and 5,100 of which were over 120 days past due in
 payment, respectively.

(b) "Analog video customers" include all customers who receive video
 services (including those who also purchase high-speed Internet and
 telephone services) but excludes approximately 308,100, 303,100,
 295,800 and 288,000 customer relationships at September 30, 2007,
 June 30, 2007, December 31, 2006 and September 30, 2006,
 respectively, who receive high-speed Internet service only or
 telephone service only and who are only counted as high-speed
 Internet customers or telephone customers.

(c) Included within "analog video customers" are those in commercial
 and multi-dwelling structures, which are calculated on an equivalent
 bulk unit ("EBU") basis. EBU is calculated for a system by dividing
 the bulk price charged to accounts in an area by the most prevalent
 price charged to non-bulk residential customers in that market for
 the comparable tier of service. The EBU method of estimating analog
 video customers is consistent with the methodology used in
 determining costs paid to programmers and has been used consistently.
 As we increase our effective analog video prices to residential
 customers without a corresponding increase in the prices charged to
 commercial service or multi-dwelling customers, our EBU count will
 decline even if there is no real loss in commercial service or multi-
 dwelling customers.

(d) "Customer relationships" include the number of customers that
 receive one or more levels of service, encompassing video, Internet
 and telephone services, without regard to which service(s) such
 customers receive. This statistic is computed in accordance with the
 guidelines of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association
 (NCTA) that have been adopted by eleven publicly traded cable
 operators, including Charter.

(e) "Pro forma average monthly revenue per analog video customer" is
 calculated as total quarterly pro forma revenue divided by three
 divided by average pro forma analog video customers during the
 respective quarter.

(f) "Bundled customers" include customers receiving a combination of
 at least two different types of service, including Charter's video
 service, high-speed Internet service or telephone. "Bundled
 customers" do not include customers who only subscribe to video
 service.

(g) "Digital video customers" include all households that have one or
 more digital set-top boxes or cable cards deployed. Included in
 "digital video customers" on September 30, 2007, June 30, 2007,
 December 31, 2006 and September 30, 2006 are approximately 3,100,
 3,200, 4,700 and 5,100 customers, respectively, that receive digital
 video service directly through satellite transmission.

(h) "Residential high-speed Internet customers" represent those
 residential customers who subscribe to our high-speed Internet
 service. At September 30, 2007, June 30, 2007, December 31, 2006 and
 September 30, 2006, approximately 2,363,100, 2,313,000, 2,133,300 and
 2,080,500 of these high-speed Internet customers, respectively,
 receive video and/or telephone services from us and are included
 within the respective statistics above.

(i) "Telephone customers" include all customers receiving telephone
 service. As of September 30, 2007, June 30, 2007, December 31, 2006
 and September 30, 2006, approximately 770,600, 670,400, 418,600 and
 314,000 of these telephone customers, respectively, receive video
 and/or high-speed Internet services from us and are included within
 the respective statistics above.

(j) "Revenue generating units" represent the sum total of all analog
 video, digital video, high-speed Internet and telephone customers,
 not counting additional outlets within one household. For example, a
 customer who receives two types of service (such as analog video and
 digital video) would be treated as two revenue generating units, and
 if that customer added on high-speed Internet service, the customer
 would be treated as three revenue generating units. This statistic is
 computed in accordance with the guidelines of the NCTA that have been
 adopted by eleven publicly traded cable operators, including Charter.

(k) "Homes passed" represent our estimate of the number of living
 units, such as single family homes, apartment units and condominium
 units passed by our cable distribution network in the areas where we
 offer the service indicated. "Homes passed" exclude commercial units
 passed by our cable distribution network. These estimates are updated
 for all periods presented when estimates change.

(l) "Penetration" represents customers as a percentage of homes passed
 for the service indicated.

(m) "Pro forma average monthly revenue per customer" represents
 quarterly pro forma revenue for the service indicated divided by
 three divided by the number of pro forma customers for the service
 indicated during the respective quarter.

(n) "Pro forma quarterly net gain (loss)" represents the pro forma net
 gain or loss in the respective quarter for the service indicated.

(o) "Digital penetration of analog video customers" represents the
 number of digital video customers as a percentage of analog video
 customers.

(a) Interest on cash pay obligations excludes accretion of original
 issue discounts on certain debt securities and amortization of
 deferred financing costs that are reflected as interest expense in
 our consolidated statements of operations.

(b) See page 1 of this addendum for detail of the components included
 within adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing and
 discontinued operations of $467 million and $1.5 billion for the
 three and nine months ended September 30, 2006, respectively,
 includes $0 and $46 million of adjusted EBITDA recorded in
 discontinued operations in our consolidated statements of operations.

(c) Pro forma results reflect certain sales of cable systems in the
 third quarter of 2006, January 2007 and May 2007, and the acquisition
 of cable systems in August 2007 as if they occurred as of January 1,
 2006.

The above schedules are presented in order to reconcile adjusted
 EBITDA and free cash flows, both non-GAAP measures, to the most
 directly comparable GAAP measures in accordance with Section 401(b)
 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
