Calling the cable business “under-penetrated,” Charter Communications (NASDAQ: CHTR) CFO Christopher Winfrey continued to hammer home his company’s rationale for attempting to by Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) and Bright House Networks.
Speaking at the Deutsche Bank 2016 Media Internet & Telecom Conference, Winfrey said Charter has achieved “operational momentum” since the 2012 digital overhaul initiated under President and CEO Thomas Rutledge, accelerating margins on each user with more efficient customer service and technology.
Plying operational efficiencies such as the Spectrum Guide cloud-based video distribution system, and the World Box standardized set-top template, to the customer bases of TWC and Bright House Networks will allow Charter to expand its momentum, according to Winfrey.
