Tom Rutledge must really like those Bresnan properties. Charter will pay $1.625bln to acquire the systems in CO, MT, WY and UT from Cablevision, just a little over 2 years after it closed on its $1.365bln purchase of the systems (304K video subs; 660K homes). The price tag represents a multiple of 8.9x Optimum West’s (nee Bresnan) 3Q12 adjusted EBITDA and less than 8.0-X Charter’s estimate of Optimum West’s 1st year adjusted EBITDA under Charter. More details on financing and Charter’s last major acquisition here.
