Guru Investment Theses on Charter Communications Inc

Daniel Loeb Comments on Charter Communications - Apr 27, 2016

Charter Communications (CHTR) is a domestic provider of voice, video, and high-speed data. In May 2015, Charter announced the acquisition of Time Warner Cable. This is a transformational deal that quadruples the company’s scale while driving substantial operating efficiencies. Importantly, the pro forma company will be led by Charter’s current CEO, Tom Rutledge, who we view as one of the best operators in the industry.

New Charter is well positioned to capture market share from satellite and telco competitors given its advantaged high-speed data product. In addition, Mr. Rutledge’s track record of boosting video penetration, driving down service costs, and executing large network transformations at legacy Charter makes us optimistic about his leadership of the new entity.

There are several operational benefits awaiting the New Charter. The company’s increased scale will help facilitate a continued turnaround at both Charter and Time Warner Cable and the deal also creates new revenue opportunities in business services and wireless. Additionally, Charter should have increased negotiating leverage with content providers which should deliver substantial cost savings over time.

Substantial free cash flow per share growth will be driven by accelerated revenue growth, margin expansion, synergies, lower capital intensity, significant tax assets, and substantial share repurchases. As a result, we believe Charter’s share price can compound at ~25 – 30% over the next two years.
