Charter plans $750M notes offering
Charter Communications said Wednesday that subsidiaries CCO Holdings and CCO Holdings Capital Corp. plan a public offering of $750 million in senior unsecured notes due 2020.
Bank of America (BofA) Merrill Lynch is lead manager.
The nation's fourth-largest cable TV company plans to use the proceeds from the notes sale along with borrowings under a revolving credit facility to finance tender offers by subsidiaries Charter Communications Operating and CCH II.
The tender offers are set to expire on Dec. 28 unless extended or ended earlier.
Earlier this month, Charter Communications reported that its third-quarter loss narrowed, helped by growth in broadband and small business services.
Shares of Charter Communications, based in St. Louis, rose 86 cents to $53.50 in midday trading.
