EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

United States Cellular Corporation ("U.S. Cellular") filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 on February 24, 2016 (“Original Form 10-K”).  General Instruction G. (3) of Form 10-K provides that the information required by Part III (Items 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14) may be incorporated by reference from the registrant’s definitive proxy statement (filed or required to be filed pursuant to Regulation 14A) which  involves the election of directors, if such  definitive proxy statement is filed with the SEC not later than 120 days after the end of the fiscal year covered by the Form 10-K.  However, General Instruction G. (3) of Form 10-K also provides that the Items comprising the Part III information may be filed as part of the Form 10-K, or as an amendment to the Form 10-K and, in such case, must be filed no later than the end of such 120-day period.  In U.S. Cellular’s Original Form 10-K, U.S. Cellular had disclosed that it intended to incorporate such information from its Notice of Annual Meeting of Shareholders and Proxy Statement (“Proxy Statement”) for the 2016 Annual Meeting of Shareholders scheduled to be held May 24, 2016.  However, pursuant to General Instruction G. (3) of Form 10-K, U.S. Cellular has instead determined to file the information required by Part III, Items 10 through 14 in this Amendment No. 1 to U.S. Cellular's 2015 Form 10-K.  Accordingly, this Amendment No. 1 is being filed for the sole purpose of filing the information required by Part III, Items 10 through 14.  In addition, Item 15 is included to identify the Exhibits being filed with this Form 10-K/A. 

This Amendment No. 1 consists solely of the preceding cover page, this explanatory note, Items 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 of Part III of Form 10-K, Item 15 identifying the additional exhibits filed herewith, a signature page, Exhibit 99.1, which includes the information required by Items 10 through 14 of Part III, and certifications required to be filed as exhibits hereto.  Except for the foregoing, U.S. Cellular has not modified or updated disclosures presented in the Original Form 10-K in this Form 10-K/A.  Accordingly, this Form 10-K/A does not modify or update the disclosures in the Original Form 10-K to reflect subsequent events, results or developments or facts that have become known after the date of the Original Form 10-K.  Therefore, this Form 10-K/A should be read in conjunction with any documents incorporated by reference in the Original Form 10-K and our filings made with the SEC subsequent to the Original Form 10-K.
