T-Mobile’s Strong Earnings Trumped by Silence on Sprint Merger Deal



T-Mobile US just reported its highest-ever quarterly net income and beat analysts’ subscribers forecast. But investors will have to remain patient for the announcement they’ve been awaiting most of all—a decision on the merger deal between T-Mobile and its competitor Sprint.
Reports emerged on Tuesday and Wednesday that a Justice Department antitrust regulatory review was nearing the finish line. In order to merge, T-Mobile (ticker: TMUS) and Sprint (S) would be required to divest $5 billion of assets, including a prepaid phone brand and a portion of their wireless-spectrum portfolio to Dish Network (DISH).
T-Mobile had also scheduled Thursday’s earnings release only 48 hours earlier on Tuesday, fueling speculation that a merger announcement was coming. But at 3:43 p.m. on Thursday, T-Mobile released an updated filing that it would only report earnings in a news release and reschedule the 4:30 p.m. post-earnings call with executives and sell-side analysts.

Presumably, some details remain to be ironed out among the various involved parties—none of whom have confirmed that an agreement is at hand. The Wall Street Journal also reported Thursday the Justice Department was still speaking with a collection of state attorneys general who are pursuing a lawsuit against the deal. T-Mobile’s stock briefly hit an all-time high earlier Thursday, but slipped toward the close after postponing its earnings call and ended the day down 0.9%.
For the second quarter, T-Mobile reported $1.09 in earnings per share—up 18% from a year ago and above the Wall Street consensus estimate of 97 cents per share. Sales in the period were $11 billion, up 3.9%, but just below the $11.1 billion that analysts had expected. Adjusted Ebitda, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization, reached a quarterly record of $3.5 billion, up 7% from the same period last year, and ahead of the analyst consensus estimate of $3.3 billion. Net income rose 20% to $939 million, also an all-time high.
Compared with AT&T ’s (T) net 72,000 monthly phone subscribers added in the second quarter, T-Mobile reported a relatively hefty addition of 1.1 million postpaid customers in the period. Analysts had been expecting 883,000 net adds, on top of the first quarter’s 1.0 million. Still, T-Mobile sees a strong second half of the year—it raised its 2019 postpaid subscriber add guidance for the second straight quarter, to 3.5 million to 4.0 million, from 3.1 million to 3.7 million previously. Prepaid net adds came in at 131,000 in the quarter.
It apparently wasn’t good enough, however—T-Mobile stock was flat in after-hours trading Thursday. Merger-curious investors will have to remain patient for at least one more day.

T-Mobile does something that no other carrier on Earth has done before

After recently completing a 5G data call successfully in the wild over its low-band 600MHz spectrum, T-Mobile made another big announcement today. For the first time in North America, it completed a stand-alone 5G data session. Current 5G devices used in the handful of markets where 5G is now available, connect to 5G and LTE at the same time (non- stand-alone). What T-Mobile tested today is a network dedicated to 5G only. The wireless provider says that such networks will "supercharge" those phone applications based on AR and VR that depend on a real-time response from the user. It also will help the user experience with cloud gaming, improve productivity in smart factories, and perhaps power self-driving vehicles.






And for the first time ever on this planet (we don't know if the aliens are on 6G), the aforementioned data session was completed using "a multi-vendor 5G next-generation radio and core network." The companies involved in this test are names you should all be familiar with such as Ericsson, Nokia, Cisco, and MediaTek. 5G will provide consumers with download dataspeeds 10 times faster than 4G LTE download speeds. A movie that used to take minutes to download on your phone will take seconds on 5G. Once 5G becomes available in the U.S. coast-to-coast, something T-Mobile says will take place next year, new industries will be developed. The U.S. economy is very likely to get a shot in the arm once this all takes place.
A combined T-Mobile-Sprint will offer data speeds 4 to 6 times faster than the two remained separate companies





A 5G driven economy is likely to create new jobs and this was one of the arguments that T-Mobile has been making in order to win U.S. regulatory approval of its merger with Sprint. The carrier feels that the combination of its low-band airwaves (which travel farther and penetrate buildings well) and its mmWave ultra high-frequency holdings (that have higher dataspeeeds and capacity, but only travel short distances and don't penetrate structures well) will blend perfectly with Sprint's mid-band spectrum. The 2.5GHz hoard owned by Sprint, combined with T-Mobile's 600MHz will be an important part of T-Mobile's sub-6GHz 5G service. Verizon plans to use only mmW spectrum for its 5G network, which means it might take longer for Big Red to build out a nationwide 5G network than T-Mobile.




T-Mobile promotes a post merger 5G future




T-Mobile has been pushing hard to complete the merger, and the company says that by 2024, the New T-Mobile (the merged T-Mobile-Sprint) will have eight times the 5G network capacity than a stand-alone T-Mobile and Sprint. And even better, 5G dataspeeds will be four to six times faster than if the pair remained separate companies. And these improvements can be traced to the use of T-Mobile's low-band spectrum together with Sprint's mid-band airwaves.



"This major 5G breakthrough is another example of how the T-Mobile engineering team continues to innovate and drive the entire industry forward. I could not be more proud of them. 5G brings a new era in wireless, and if our merger with Sprint is approved, the New T-Mobile will bring together the resources and vision necessary to ensure America has a network that’s second to none."-Neville Ray, CTO, T-Mobile



Last week, the Department of Justice approved the $26.5 billion merger between T-Mobile and Sprint after the pair agreed to sell some assets to Dish Network. The latter will create a "fourth nationwide facilities-based network competitor," a fancy term for saying that Dish will replace Sprint as the fourth-largest carrier in the states. And Dish will be building out its own stand-alone 5G network while operating as an MVNO while the construction takes place.


Only one thing is preventing this merger from closing. That's a lawsuit filed by the attorneys general in 13 states and the attorney general of Washington D.C. The suit aims to block the merger and a trial might not get underway until December.

Today we’re unveiling our newest and most powerful signal: 600MHz. No signal goes farther — and it’s only available at T-Mobile.
