                Abigail P. Johnson is a Director, the Vice Chairman, the 
Chief Executive Officer and the President of FMR LLC.

 

                Members of the Johnson family, including Abigail P. 
Johnson, are the predominant owners, directly or through trusts, of Series 
B voting common shares of FMR LLC, representing 49% of the voting power of 
FMR LLC. The Johnson family group and all other Series B shareholders have 
entered into a shareholders' voting agreement under which all Series B 
voting common shares will be voted in accordance with the majority vote of 
Series B voting common shares. Accordingly, through their ownership of 
voting common shares and the execution of the shareholders' voting 
agreement, members of the Johnson family may be deemed, under the 
Investment Company Act of 1940, to form a controlling group with respect to 
FMR LLC.

 

                Neither FMR LLC nor Abigail P. Johnson has the sole power 
to vote or direct the voting of the shares owned directly by the various 
investment companies registered under the Investment Company Act ("Fidelity 
Funds") advised by Fidelity Management & Research Company ("FMR Co"), a 
wholly owned subsidiary of FMR LLC, which power resides with the Fidelity 
Funds' Boards of Trustees. Fidelity Management & Research Company carries 
out the voting of the shares under written guidelines established by the 
Fidelity Funds' Boards of Trustees.

 

                This filing reflects the securities beneficially owned, or 
that may be deemed to be beneficially owned, by FMR LLC, certain of its 
subsidiaries and affiliates, and other companies (collectively, the "FMR 
Reporters"). This filing does not reflect securities, if any, beneficially 
owned by certain other companies whose beneficial ownership of securities 
is disaggregated from that of the FMR Reporters in accordance with 
Securities and Exchange Commission Release No. 34-39538 (January 12, 1998).

 
RULE 13d-1(k)(1) AGREEMENT
 

                The undersigned persons, on February 12, 2016, agree and 
consent to the joint filing on their behalf of this Schedule 13G in 
connection with their beneficial ownership of the CLASS A COMMON STOCK of 
CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS INC DEL at December 31, 2015.
