ITEM 1.01 ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT
On April 25, 2012, Charter Communications, Inc.'s indirect subsidiary, CCO Holdings, LLC, ("CCO Holdings") entered into Amendment No. 1 (the “Amendment”) to its existing Credit Agreement, dated as of March 6, 2007 (as amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”), by and among CCO Holdings as the Borrower, the financial institutions party thereto, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as the successor Administrative Agent, and the other agents party thereto. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings given to such terms in the Amendment or in the Credit Agreement, as applicable.
The Amendment consists of, among other things, amendments to the Change of Control definition and certain other provisions and definitions related thereto. The Change of Control definition was amended to conform to the provision contained in Charter Operating's credit agreement so that a Change in Control could now occur upon the consummation of any transaction resulting in any person or group having power to vote more than 50% of the ordinary voting power. Previously, the percentage of voting power necessary for a Change of Control had been 35%. For a full description of the terms and conditions of the Amendment, see Exhibit 10.1 to this current report on Form 8-K.
