Charter Communications, Inc. Closes on $3.5 Billion Loan

Charter Communications Inc. entered into a secured credit facility for $3.5 billion in term loans. The new loans will be used to finance Charter's acquisition from Comcast of 1.5 million Time Warner Cable video customers. Charter previously announced it had entered into commitments for up to $8.4 billion of loans, and this $3.5 billion is part of that commitment. Goldman Sachs Bank USA, BofA Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse Securities LLC and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. served as the joint lead book runners and joint lead arrangers for the new facilities.

Charter Chooses Sense Corp as Exclusive Vendor for Next-generation Enterprise Data Warehouse

Charter Communications, Inc. announced it has signed an agreement with management and technology consulting firm Sense Corp. to create its next-generation enterprise data warehouse. Under the agreement, Sense Corp. will act as Charter's exclusive vendor for the business intelligence initiative, as Charter positions itself for growth and enhances its ability to seamlessly integrate new subscribers by early 2015. The project is a critical component of Charter's organic and inorganic growth plans, enhancing the Company's enterprise performance reporting and analytics capabilities to significantly increase customer relationships.

The First U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Vacates an Order Dismissing Cable Subscribers' Lawsuit against Charter Communications Entertainments L.L.C and Charter Communications Inc

The First U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals vacated an order dismissing cable subscribers' lawsuit seeking relief for interruptions in service. Although the cable company's tender of account credits mooted the damages claims of three subscribers, claims for declaratory relief remained. On Oct. 29, 2011, a severe snowstorm hit Massachusetts. Thousands of homes and businesses lost cable, Internet and phone service. Bruce M. Cooper, John W. Romito and Roy L. Baker, customers of Charter Communications Entertainments I L.L.C. and Charter Communications Inc. (collectively, Charter) who lost service as a result of the snowstorm, filed a class action lawsuit. The complaint alleged Charter unlawfully failed to give account credits for the loss of service. Massachusetts law provides that a company issued a license for cable service must grant a subscriber a pro rata credit or rebate for an interruption of service lasting longer than 24 hours. Before serving their complaint, Cooper, Romito and Baker sent a demand letter to Charter. Whitney Taylor Thompson was added as a plaintiff, but she did not send a demand letter. Charter credited the accounts of Cooper, Romito and Baker, and moved to dismiss the complaint. The district court granted the motion, finding the claims of all the plaintiffs except Thompson were moot and that Thompson did not allege a viable cause of action. The First Circuit agreed that Cooper, Romito and Baker could not pursue money damages. They accepted credits that fully compensated them for the time they were without service. The claims for declaratory relief were not moot as the district court found. Charter insisted that it gave credits to the plaintiffs under a policy that it voluntarily adopted. That policy was to provide a credit only to customers who requested one. The parties' dispute about the extent of Charter's duty was live and proper for judicial consideration. The First Circuit observed it was not unlikely that another severe winter storm would impact New England and cause service outages. The First Circuit determined the asserted contract claims failed. The plaintiffs did not show they could sue as third-party beneficiaries to enforce licensing agreements between Charter and municipalities. The failure to plead a contractual relationship did not foreclose the claim under the Massachusetts Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices statute, however. The First Circuit found the complaint adequately alleged that Charter's failure to automatically issue credits or rebates was an unfair practice that injured consumers. The district court erred in dismissing the complaint in its entirety.
