Report: T-Mobile, Sprint in Active Talks Regarding Merger






According to sources close to the matter, who spoke to CNBC, T-Mobile and Sprint are in active talks regarding a stock-for-stock merger. If you feel like you’re having déjà vu, don’t worry, you’re not. Reports such as this have seen light before, but the reported deal fell through in mid-2014.
This time around, things seem serious again, but we could still be weeks away from any deal being struck. As reported, T-Mobile has yet to complete any due diligence on Sprint, and to further complicate the situation, heavy thought must be put into whether antitrust regulators would allow for the #3 and #4 ranked US carriers to merge.
Detailed inside of the report, given the all-stock nature of the deal, “Softbank would emerge as a large minority holder in any combination. While T-Mobile CEO John Legere is expected to lead any combination that results from a merger, [Softbank’s Masayoshi] Son has made it clear he wants a say in how the company is run.”
So, yeah, the main takeaway is that talks of a merger are happening, but it’s still possible that nothing happens. We’ll keep you posted as the story develops.

T-Mobile proposal might salvage a merger with Sprint

A WSJ source says Sprint's owner is considering a new offer.






Eduardo Munoz / Reuters


Earlier this week, reports surfaced that Sprint's parent company, Japan's SoftBank group, was going to call off the carrier's impending merger with T-Mobile. They'd worked out a broad agreement but couldn't agree on an ownership ratio. But a source told the Wall Street Journal today that T-Mobile produced a new offer that Sprint is considering, meaning they could reach a deal in a few weeks. Or they could, once again, disagree on the terms and leave the merger behind.




We don't know the new terms, but according to the Wall Street Journal, T-Mobile is working to keep the deal alive. T-Mobile CEO John Legere met with his Sprint counterpart Marcelo Claure on Wednesday night, and the latter company's board met on Thursday to discuss. Their top concern: Sprint's valuation and how much its chairman Masayoshi Son, who runs SoftBank, would be able to direct the course of the combined company.
Son had called off the previous deal, which would have given T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom full control of the firm arising from the merged carriers. The new deal's terms are still unclear.

With T-Mobile Deal All But Dead, Softbank Looks To Charter





Sprint parent company Softbank is reportedly chatting up Charter Communications about a possible merger, amid indications that Sprint’s merger deal with T-Mobile US has tanked. This comes after Softbank reportedly torpedoed merger talks between Sprint and T-Mobile due to disagreements over how the combined company would be run. At this point, talk of a merger is between Softbank and Charter, rather than having direct involvement with Sprint. Softbank CEO Masayoshi Son personally approached Charter about a merger, and talks at this point are reported to be strictly exploratory and preliminary in nature, but include a number of higher-ups from both companies.

Sprint’s previously explored deal with T-Mobile would most likely be completely off the table, should talks between Charter and Softbank take off. It’s unclear exactly what measure of control Charter would be able to exercise over Sprint, or over Softbank’s other ventures and holdings. One thing that would be fairly likely in the event of such a deal is Sprint using Charter’s wealth of spectrum to fill gaps in its own wireless coverage, and there would probably be some sort of partnership on Wi-Fi, as well. Charter is the second largest cable company in the United States and has numerous Wi-Fi hotspots throughout the country that its customers can use for free. Naturally, the increased spectrum holdings and nationwide Wi-Fi would make 5G deployment and IoT management a bit easier for Sprint, though there would be some growing pains as the integration began.







Softbank is one of Japan’s premier telecom companies and has also ventured into robotics and other fields in the tech world. Its wide portfolio and clout have made it a good fit to own and operate Sprint from above thus far, though that was not always the case; at one point, Masayoshi Son was very open about the fact that the company was losing money thanks to Sprint. The previously proposed merger with T-Mobile was supposed to help both carriers fill gaps in coverage and increase their speed and capacity, along with allowing spectrum interlock to make 5G deployment across diversified solutions easier across the entire US market. News of the merger falling through due to a breakdown in power management is not entirely shocking, given the massive dose of personality that CEO John Legere has injected into T-Mobile over his five year tenure; to lose any control over the company’s management or image would almost certainly break any talk of a merger, though it’s still unclear exactly how things unfolded to lead to where we are today.

Mobile and Sprint Formally Call Off Merger Discussions



It’s hard to imagine that we are done for good this time, but T-Mobile and Sprint have (for now) formally and officially called off merger talks. T-Mobile released a statement over the weekend acknowledging that the two companies “were unable to find mutually agreeable terms.”
In recent weeks (months?), it seemed an almost inevitable conclusion that the two would announce that they were merging. Then within the past week or so, talks broke down as SoftBank (Sprint’s parent) decided it didn’t want to give up control to T-Mobile and Deutsche Telekom. I guess this means a supposed last ditch effort by T-Mobile’s John Legere to salvage the deal didn’t work out.
Either way, the deal isn’t happening at this moment in time. Below is the statement given by John Legere:
“The prospect of combining with Sprint has been compelling for a variety of reasons, including the potential to create significant benefits for consumers and value for shareholders. However, we have been clear all along that a deal with anyone will have to result in superior long-term value for T-Mobile’s shareholders compared to our outstanding stand-alone performance and track record,” said John Legere, President and CEO of T-Mobile US, Inc. “Going forward, T-Mobile will continue disrupting this industry and bringing our proven Un-carrier strategy to more customers and new categories – ultimately redefining the mobile Internet as we know it. We’ve been out-growing this industry for the last 15 quarters, delivering outstanding value for shareholders, and driving significant change across wireless. We won’t stop now.”
