    T-Mobile selling tower operating rights

    To buy Metro PCS.

    Seems like a good move.

    • Not so sure about that. From today's Globe and Mail -----------------------

      Deutsche Telekom did not discuss a potential deal structure in its statement.

      But two sources familiar with the matter said that under terms of the deal being discussed, Deutsche Telekom would contribute its T-Mobile USA operations rather than paying cash. In return it would get a stake in MetroPCS, with the option to sell that on the stock market later.

      The structure, known as a reverse initial public offering, involves a private company such as T-Mobile USA gaining a public listing by acquiring a public company, said the sources who asked not to be named as they are unauthorized to speak to the media.
