Charlie would not make a weak offer just for the fun of it. If think Charlies offer is weak then that makes SB extremely weak. Charlie needs CLWR. Charlie does not need to stall things, the minority shareholders and government will probably do that.
Some facts to consider:
1)Dish has not stated that have backed out of negotiations
2)The price of CLWR is closer to Dish's bid
3)Dish has announced 1 Bil in debt financing
4)Teamrep has been quiet
Kinda makes ya think Dish's chances of landing CLWR are better then the media would lead everyone to believe
You nailed it exactly, and to top it off the market takes this guy seriously. That was why I asked the first question, that it will make him look weak. He is taken very seriously, so why damage his credibility?
Dish is getting ready for what is to come. Others already have access to cash so they do not need to raise it. It will be very interesting how things will unfold in the coming months. Gents start your engines.
