IF that were true (and that's a really big IF), that could lead to some interesting possibilities with Microsoft/Nokia devices on this fantasy network.
ya know wer 565 it may get to 19.67 that would be when I would really get into it big but now ya can only double . its not worth it unless ya can triple. rite gettoman trips or nuttin honey
You would think any one interested in taking over TMUS would also look at picking up NTLS from their pocket change. NTLS is about $500 million mkt cap with a reasonable size subscribers. It would make sense to me.
in tmus ya buy the tank and just run over the rest of the getto the rats will have to have some place to hide so they ll come to sprint
AT&T offer was $39 billion for the whole t-mobile with NO ASSUMPTION OF DEBT. If you read At&t/T-mobile announcement, it said "AT&T assumes no debt from T-Mobile USA or Deutsche Telekom and continues to have a strong balance sheet".
Currently, T-mobile is $20 billion company over $20 billion in DEBT. So, the total already exceeds AT&T offer of $39 billion!
T-mobile needs Sprint more than Sprint needs -Tmobile. So, there will be NO premium. However, both share holders can likely triple their money as there will be huge cost savings post merger.
One must not forget at the time AT&T made thier offer T-Mobile did not have PCS Spectrum or Subs.
So with that merger I be willing to say at todays share price one may see a bid about $30 and that would be a % of cash and stock and that would be about a 10% prem over the Dec.13 closeing price. Why that days closeing price ? Simple Math No company would wait 6mths. to place a merger bis and watch that companies stock climb during that period . A non binding bid today save a Major head acke 6mnths down the road
I wonder what Charlie the man has running tru his head after this news of Sprint shopping around ?
Just might be Dish makes a play for TMUS that could pass FCC / Gov. reg. and then join hands with sprint thru a Back Door approach.
Dish has interests also in TMUS as stated in the past and also Sprint stated public that they may join the likes of Dish or another network .
I am almost willing to bet with all the Money Son has along with dish there is something in the maken.
same here I just joined T-Mobile last month after leaving AT&T, I am saving around 150$ per month for 5 phones.
Look at it this way- there hasn't even been a bid yet. And IF there is one, there'll likely be counteroffers and negotiations, and approvals needed from the government... long story short, you've got a least six months to a year before you even have to worry about it, plus however long it is after an official merger/buyout happens that they begin to change their plans- IF they even do that.
I look for Sprint to walk away with at Least one heck of a partnership or agreement with TMUS in some shape or form and even that would be a gGreat improvement for both companies.
T-Mobile is like the weakest animal at the back of the back, they will get bought by someone, whether it be Sprint, DISH, Telefonica, or XYZ company... it's just a matter of time
I also consider the cable companies; comcast, time warner, viacom... Cable and satellite transport of media is moving to mobile... Look for someone with a market cap of 50 Billion dollars... My $0.02
