Mediacom Communications And Rocco B. Commisso Complete Going-Private Transaction

MEDIACOM COMMUNICATIONS CORPORATION (Nasdaq: MCCC) today announced the successful completion of its previously announced merger transaction with Rocco B. Commisso, the founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Mediacom. As a result of the merger, Mediacom is a private company wholly-owned by Mr. Commisso.

At a special meeting of stockholders held earlier in the day, holders of approximately 97% of the aggregate voting power of the outstanding shares of Mediacom’s Class A common stock and Class B common stock, voting together as a single class, voted to adopt the merger agreement.

In addition, the merger agreement contained a “majority of the minority” voting condition, which required approval by the affirmative vote of holders of at least a majority of the outstanding shares of Mediacom’s Class A common stock, exclusive of shares held by Mr. Commisso, his affiliates and immediate family members, and the executive officers and directors of Mediacom (“Public Shares”). The “majority of the minority” voting condition was satisfied, with approximately 97% of the Public Shares voted at the special meeting voting in favor of the adoption of the merger agreement.

In remarks following the completion of the merger, Mr. Commisso stated, “I was gratified to see our public stockholders overwhelmingly approve the going-private transaction at today’s meeting. Our management team and fellow employees can now focus full time on delivering the best experience to our customers. I am excited for the Company and our employees as we enter a new chapter in our history.”

“I wish to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the members of our Board of Directors, most of whom served the Company since our initial public offering in 2000. Throughout the years, they made tremendous contributions, provided sound wisdom and advice to our management team, and at all times upheld the interests of public stockholders. I wish them well in their future endeavors,” concluded Mr. Commisso.
