Charter 3Q Nos. Up


Charter Communications Inc. said Thursday that revenue increased 12.6 percent
in the third quarter while operating cash flow rose 8.7 percent compared with
2001 pro forma results, according to Dow Jones & Co. Inc.

In last year's third quarter, the company generated pro forma revenue of
$1.05 billion.

Charter, the fourth-largest MSO in the country, said in a press release that
revenue and cash-flow growth resulted primarily from increased digital-video and
high-speed-data customers, which was partially offset by a decline in
analog-video customers.

That decline, the operator added, was due in part to competition from
direct-broadcast satellite.
