Charter Communications has yet another suitor

Dutch cable operator Altice reportedly is considering a takeover bid for Charter Communications, a Stamford, Conn.-based cable and broadband provider that has a current market cap over $100 billion and an enterprise value of around $175 billion. The big question is if Altice can include enough cash to satisfy John Malone's Liberty Media, which holds 20.5% of Charter's equity and 25% of its voting stock.

Why it matters: Because everyone seems to want to buy Charter, even though its stock is now at an all-time high. First it was Verizon. Then it was SoftBank. Now it's Altice.
