Charter Seeks Five-Day Extension


Charter Communications Inc. announced Friday that it had filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a five-day extension in which to file third-quarter Form 10-Q reports for itself and its subsidiaries, Charter Communications Holdings LLC, CC V Holdings LLC (Avalon Cable) and Renaissance Media Group LLC.

Charter said the extensions were necessary in order to allow it to reflect deferred income-tax liabilities arising out of certain prior acquisitions.

The MSO had previously announced that the deferred-tax liability account will not impact previously reported revenue, operating cash flow or past or future cash tax obligations. Accordingly, it is not expected to have any cash impact.

Charter expects to file its third-quarter financial statements and related disclosures with the SEC on or before Nov. 19.
