    There is a significant spread between CHTR’s announcement of the value of TWC in its press release and the enterprise value of TWC you provide in the webinar.

    With equity of ~$55.3B and Debt of ~$23.4B, they announce a $78.7B value in their press release (other components in the standard EV equation being negligible). Yet, you state an enterprise value of $93B in your webinar. The spread seems to come primarily from two components in your definition of EV : 1) adjustments to the book value of debt and 2) net DTLs. It’s a pretty significant spread and makes me wonder why CHTR didn’t include these additional obligations in its deal valuation.
