ITEM 1.01. ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT.

Issuance of 4.500% Senior Notes due 2033

On June 2, 2021 (the "Closing Date"), CCO Holdings, LLC ("CCO Holdings") and CCO Holdings Capital Corp. (together with CCO Holdings, the "CCOH Issuers"), subsidiaries of Charter Communications, Inc. (the "Company"), issued $750 million aggregate principal amount of 4.500% Senior Notes due 2033 (the "New CCOH 2033 Notes"). The New CCOH 2033 Notes will form part of the same series as the CCOH Issuers' outstanding 4.500% Senior Notes due 2033 issued on April 22, 2021 in an aggregate principal amount of $1.0 billion (the "Existing CCOH 2033 Notes" and, together with the New CCOH 2033 Notes, the "CCOH 2033 Notes"). The New CCOH 2033 Notes will be issued as additional notes pursuant to the supplemental indenture entered into on April 22, 2021 with The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as trustee (the "Senior Notes Trustee"), in connection with the issuance of the Existing CCOH 2033 Notes and the terms thereof (the "Sixth Supplemental Indenture"). The Sixth Supplemental Indenture supplements a base indenture entered into on May 23, 2019, by and among the CCOH Issuers and the Senior Notes Trustee (the "Senior Notes Base Indenture" and, together with the Sixth Supplemental Indenture, the "Senior Notes Indenture"). The CCOH 2033 Notes were sold to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons in reliance on Regulation S. The CCOH 2033 Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or any state securities laws and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.



Senior Notes Indenture


The Senior Notes Indenture provides, among other things, that the CCOH 2033 Notes are general unsecured obligations of the CCOH Issuers. The CCOH 2033 Notes are not guaranteed.

Interest is payable on the CCOH 2033 Notes on each June 1 and December 1, commencing December 1, 2021.

At any time and from time to time prior to June 1, 2027, the CCOH Issuers may redeem the outstanding CCOH 2033 Notes in whole or in part at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest and special interest, if any, on such CCOH 2033 Notes to the redemption date, plus a make-whole premium. On or after June 1, 2027, the CCOH Issuers may redeem some or all of the outstanding CCOH 2033 Notes at redemption prices set forth in the Sixth Supplemental Indenture. In addition, at any time prior to June 1, 2024, the CCOH Issuers may redeem up to 40% of the of the CCOH 2033 Notes using proceeds from certain equity offerings at a redemption price equal to 104.500% of the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest and special interest, if any, on such Notes to the redemption date, provided that certain conditions are met.

The terms of the Senior Notes Indenture, among other things, limit the ability of the CCOH Issuers to incur additional debt and issue preferred stock; pay dividends or make other restricted payments; make certain investments; grant liens; allow restrictions on the ability of certain of their subsidiaries to pay dividends or make other payments; sell assets; merge or consolidate with other entities; and enter into transactions with affiliates.

Subject to certain limitations, in the event of a Change of Control (as defined in the Sixth Supplemental Indenture), the CCOH Issuers will be required to make an offer to purchase all of the CCOH 2033 Notes at a price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the CCOH 2033 Notes repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest and special interest, if any, to the date of repurchase thereof.

The Senior Notes Indenture provides for customary events of default, which include (subject in certain cases to customary grace and cure periods), among others, nonpayment of principal or interest; breach of other covenants or agreements in the Senior Notes Indenture; failure to pay certain other indebtedness; failure to pay certain final judgments; failure of certain guarantees to be enforceable; and certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency. Generally, if an event of default occurs, the Senior Notes Trustee or the holders of at least 30% in aggregate principal amount of the then outstanding CCOH 2033 Notes may declare all the CCOH 2033 Notes to be due and payable immediately.

Registration Rights Agreement

In connection with the sale of the New CCOH 2033 Notes, the CCOH Issuers entered into an Exchange and Registration Rights Agreement with respect to the New CCOH 2033 Notes, dated as of the Closing Date (the "Registration Rights Agreement"), with Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., as representative of the several Purchasers (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement). Under the Registration Rights Agreement, the CCOH Issuers have agreed, in certain circumstances, to file a registration statement with respect to an offer to exchange the New CCOH 2033 Notes for a new issue of substantially identical notes registered under the Securities Act, to cause the exchange offer registration statement to be declared effective and to consummate the exchange offer no later than 450 days following June 2, 2021. The CCOH Issuers may be required to provide a shelf registration statement to cover resales of the New CCOH 2033 Notes under certain circumstances. If the foregoing obligations are not satisfied, the CCOH Issuers may be required to pay holders of the New CCOH 2033 Notes additional interest at . . .
