Softbank-Sprint

This takes things a step closer to a newly formed company, with only the FTC needed to approve the deal. For shareholders, the deal gives them $7.65/share, or they can convert their shares 1:1 into the newly formed company.

Sprint

Softbank has increased their offer for Sprint to $21.6 billion, up from just over $20 billion, and restructured it to give them a larger stake. The new offer is for $16.6 billion in cash, and $5 billion invested into the new company. Is more money to shareholders, and less invested into the new company, a good idea?

DISH Network has long been a shark, circling the school of Mobile carrier fish. They made an attempt to wrestle Clearwire from Sprint long ago, and were famously flirting with Google regarding a network of some sort. DISH has an angle here… and it’s a good one. They want to bundle everything we want, together, making themselves the go-to provider for… anything, really.
