06:05 EDTCHTRCharter to merge with Time Warner Cable, acquire Bright House Networks
Charter Communications (CHTR) and Time Warner Cable (TWC) announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement for Charter to merge with Time Warner Cable. The deal values Time Warner Cable at $78.7B. Charter will provide $100.00 in cash and shares of a new public parent company equivalent to 0.5409 shares of CHTR for each Time Warner Cable share outstanding. The deal values each Time Warner Cable share at approximately $195.71 based on Charter's market closing price on May 20, or approximately $200 based on Charter's 60-trading day volume weighted average price. In addition, Charter will provide an election option for each Time Warner Cable stockholder, other than Liberty Broadband (LBRDA) or Liberty Interactive (QVCA), who will receive all stock, to receive $115.00 of cash and New Charter shares equivalent to 0.4562 shares of CHTR for each Time Warner Cable share they own. In addition, Charter and Advance/Newhouse Partnership announced that the two companies have amended the agreement which the two parties signed and announced on March 31, whereby Charter will acquire Bright House Networks for $10.4B. That agreement, as amended, provides for Charter and Advance/Newhouse to form a new partnership of which New Charter will own between approximately 86% and 87% and of which Advance/Newhouse will own between approximately 13%-14%, depending on the Time Warner Cable shareholders' cash election option described above. The consideration to be paid to Advance/Newhouse by Charter will include common and convertible preferred units in the Partnership, in addition to $2B in cash. The common and convertible preferred partnership units will each be exchangeable into shares of New Charter. The Charter-Advance/Newhouse transaction is expected to close contemporaneously with the Charter-Time Warner Cable transaction. Charter also announced today that Liberty Broadband has agreed to purchase, upon closing of the Time Warner Cable transaction, $4.3B of newly issued shares of New Charter at a price equivalent to $176.95 per Charter share, which represents Charter's closing price as of May 20. As previously-announced, Liberty Broadband will also purchase, upon closing of the Charter-Advance/Newhouse transaction, $700M of newly issued Charter shares at a price equivalent to $173.00 per Charter share.

General Motors' (GM) upcoming Cadillac CTS is the only car firmly scheduled to launch in the U.S. with vehicle-to-vehicle communications, or V2V, but the industry has promised that V2V will revolutionize safety and Cisco (CSCO) joined automakers earlier this month to brief the FCC on plans to test airwave sharing soon, said The Wall Street Journal.
