STAMFORD, Conn., July 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Charter Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHTR) (along with its subsidiaries, «Charter») today announced that its subsidiaries, CCO Holdings, LLC and CCO Holdings Capital Corp. (collectively, the «Issuers»), have priced $1.5 billion in aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes due 2031 (the «Notes»).

The Notes will be issued at a price of 102.000% of the aggregate principal amount.
The Issuers intend to use the net proceeds from the sale of the Notes for general corporate purposes, including to repay certain indebtedness under the Issuers’ existing senior notes (including to potentially redeem all of the Issuers’ 5.875% senior notes due 2024), and to fund potential buybacks of Class A common stock of Charter or common units of Charter Communications Holdings, LLC and to pay related fees and expenses.
