As shown in multiple articles - well I would think Dish would have 5-6 billion more to taunt Sprint with ........they would have an even larger war chest to mess with Dan and SB with and could play with them with a $6,7,+ offer for CLWR..........all kinds of hocus pocus..........Sprint doesn't have 10 billion to go after CLWR with, nor does SB. I bet those SB Japanese Bank financing deal details require SB and Sprint to have 100% control of CLWR Spectrum/ASSETS......if not deal will not close?
SB/S could raise the price offer if Son took a lower controlling interest in sprint say 51% or more .
Son might just have to do that or even a lower percentage if the FCC or Gov. rejects above the 25% ownership. Son already gave sprint the cash it would have to spend for the 25% under Law but looking for a lager slice.
Going to be real interesting may just be Sprint gets Two or Three major investors all owning a slice of the Pie. Sprint has to take some option to stay a float
The key to S/SB or anybody else in closing this deal are the minority institutional + retail (unaffiliated). Buying them out for a fair price ($8+) virtually guarantees a closure of this deal. Any dilly dallying on a price below this will blow it.
