Mario Gabelli Comments on Cablevision Systems Corp - Jan 29, 2016

Cablevision Systems Corp. (0.7%) (CVC – $31.90 – NYSE) (NYSE:CVC), based in Bethpage, New York, owns and operates cable systems in the U.S. and is the leading operator in the New York metropolitan area. On September 17, 2015, Altice N.V. agreed to acquire Cablevision for $9.7 billion or $34.90 per share in cash. The transaction reiterates Altice’s desire to continue to expand its presence in the U.S. market. Subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals, the deal is expected to close in the first half of 2016.


From Mario Gabelli (Trades, Portfolio)'s ABC Fund Merger and Arbitrage shareholder letter for the fourth quarter 2015.

Mario Gabelli Comments on Cablevision Systems Corp - Nov 23, 2015

Cablevision Systems Corp. (NYSE:CVC)(3.5%) (CVC – $32.47 – NYSE) provides broadband, television, and phone service to approximately three million subscribers in the New York metropolitan area. An industry pioneer, CVC developed the most advanced cable plant in the country and converted over 70% of its subscribers into triple play (video, phone, and broadband) customers. After years as a potential acquisition candidate, in September 2015 Cablevision agreed to a sale to Altice for $34.90 per share in cash. The deal represents the culmination of efforts to surface value through transactions such as the spin-offs of Madison Square Garden (1.1%) and AMC Networks (0.5%) in February 2010 and June 2011, respectively.

Cablevision Systems Corp. (NYSE:CVC)(0.6%) (CVC – $32.47 – NYSE), based in Bethpage, New York, owns and operates cable systems in the U.S., and is the leading operator in the New York metropolitan area, which represents the most attractive U.S. cable market measured by affluence and population density.

Mario Gabelli Comments on Cablevision Systems Corp - Nov 21, 2014

Cablevision Systems Corp. (0.9%) (CVC - $17.51 - NYSE) provides broadband, television, and phone service to over three million subscribers in the New York metropolitan area. An industry pioneer, CVC has developed the most advanced cable plant in the country and converted over 70% of its subscribers into triple play (video, phone, and broadband) customers. In the process, Cablevision achieved industry leading average monthly subscription revenues and margins. This peak performance led the company to become a victim of its own success; combined with competition from Verizon FiOS (0.3%) in approximately half its footprint, Cablevision saw reduced growth and a sagging share price in 2012/2013. The company’s efforts to address these declines appear to be paying off. Management has also been active on the financial front, spinning off Madison Square Garden (0.8%) in February 2010 and AMC Networks (0.6%) in June 2011 and repurchasing over 10% of shares outstanding. Cablevision is now a single-market, pure-play cable operator, which could facilitate an eventual consolidation of the company in our view.
