Item 2.01          Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

 

On November 1, 2021, WideOpenWest, Inc. (the “Company”) completed the previously announced sale of the Company’s Illinois, Indiana, and Anne Arundel, Maryland service areas pursuant to that certain Asset Purchase Agreement dated June 30, 2021 between the Company and Radiate HoldCo, LLC, a telecommunications holding company affiliated with RCN Telecom Services LLC, Grande Communications Networks, LLC and WaveDivision Holdings, LLC (collectively, “Astound Broadband”) (the “Astound Purchase Agreement”), whereby Radiate HoldCo, LLC acquired the Company’s Illinois, Indiana, and Anne Arundel, Maryland service areas for approximately $661 million, subject to adjustments, including customary working capital adjustments, as specified in the Astound Purchase Agreement (the “Astound Broadband Transaction”).

 

A description of and a copy of the Astound Purchase Agreement was contained in and filed as an exhibit to a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 1, 2021.

 

Item 8.01          Other Events.

 

On November 1, 2021, the Company issued a press release announcing the completion of the Astound Broadband Transaction, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.  

 

Certain statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K that are not historical facts contain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward-looking statements represent our goals, beliefs, plans and expectations about our prospects for the future and other future events. Forward-looking statements include all statements that are not historical fact and can be identified by terms such as “may,” “intend,” “might,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “anticipate,” “expect,” “believe,” “estimate,” “plan,” “project,” “predict,” “potential,” or the negative of these terms. Although these forward-looking statements reflect our good-faith belief and reasonable judgment based on current information, these statements are qualified by important factors, many of which are beyond our control, that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. These factors and other risks that could cause our actual results to differ materially are set forth in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 24, 2021, and also include the following factors: uncertainties relating to the use of proceeds from the sale of systems to Astound Broadband; the effect of the completion of the Astound Transaction on the Company’s ability to retain key personnel and to maintain relationships with customers, suppliers and other business partners; and risks relating to potential diversion of management attention from the Company’s ongoing business operations. Given these uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements included in this report are made as of the date hereof or the date specified herein, based on information available to us as of such date. Except as required by law, we assume no obligation to update these forward-looking statements, even if new information becomes available in the future.
