SoftBank linked to Charter talks as doubts cast on Sprint/T-Mobile tie-up
05 November, 2017, 02:08
But in a jointstatement Saturday, Sprint and T-Mobile said they were calling off merger negotiations for the foreseeable future.
Had T-Mobile and Sprint completed a merger, Reuters says the new company would have claimedmore than 130 million subscribers. Details of the offer are unknown, but it's said that Sprint's board spent Thursday discussing this whole merger situation. The two sides could reach a deal within weeks, but the two companies could still fail to agree on deal terms.
But Sprint stock stumbled Monday after a news report that its parent company, the Japanese conglomerate SoftBank, called off talks with T-Mobile about the possible merger.
Wireless carriers Sprint and T-Mobile have called off a potential merger, saying they could not come to an agreement that would benefit customers and shareholders. Sources had originally stated that Sprint chose to call off the acquisition because Deutsche Telekom was looking to get the majority of control over the entity resulting from the merger; though some Sprint executives were reportedly okay with this, others allegedly wanted more.
"These two are going to find compelling reasons to explore a combination again at some point", said Kevin Roe, an analyst at Roe Equity Research.
Deutsche Telekom, based in Bonn, Germany, has maintained throughout the talks this year with SoftBank that it should end up with control of the combined company. After the government nixed AT&T's attempt to buy it in 2011, T-Mobile led the way in many consumer-friendly changes, such as ditching two-year contracts and bringing back unlimited data plans. Sprint also controls the largest holding of 2.5 gigahertz airwave licenses in the USA, a crown jewel that has been obscured inside a money-losing business.
This isn't the first time Sprint has tried to acquire T-Mobile, and it may not be the last. "We won't stop now".
