Liberty Media Corporation Comments On Charter’s Proposal To Time Warner Cable

Liberty Media Corporation ("Liberty") (Nasdaq: LMCA, LMCB) today released the following statements from its Chairman, John Malone, and its President and CEO, Greg Maffei, regarding their support for the Charter proposal to Time Warner Cable.

“The proposed consolidation of Charter and Time Warner Cable, under the respected operational leadership of Tom Rutledge, will enable the cable industry to adopt common technology, brands and service offerings providing the scale necessary to compete in today’s marketplace,” said John Malone, Chairman of Liberty Media. “This industry brought to the home 500 channels; digital compression and high speed internet, but needs scale to attract the developers and innovators critical to remaining competitive.”

“A key reason Liberty invested in Charter was the strength of Tom Rutledge and his management team. They have done a tremendous job turning around Charter's business and we are pleased with the performance of our investment,” said Greg Maffei, President and CEO of Liberty Media. “Charter has been and can continue to be successful on a standalone basis, but the proposed combination with Time Warner Cable will drive shareholder value for all.”
