    Valuation of New Company - MetroPCS + Tmobile USA

    According to the latest article, combined revenue is about $25 billion for the two merged company. If we give no credit to Tmobile's bussines and assign a 0.9x valuation to the revenue (PCS is currently having a 0.9x valuation) we get a market cap of $22.5 billion (VZ currently has a 1.15x and AT&T has 1.72x market cap/revenue), MetroPCS current shareholders' take would be $5.85 billion, divide that by 365 million shares outstanding, that's $16.03/share, plus the additional $4/share, the fair value for the current MetroPCS share should be around $20/share...

    Please correct me if my math is wrong.

    • I do not know if your math is wrong, I am long PCS and I hope its right.

      However, "Mr. Market" says your math is wrong.
      10/2 close was $13.57.
      We are down about $0.71, to about $12.85. Either Mr. Market does not understand this deal or has a different valuation of it than you do. Linquist still owes about 5.3M shares of PCS, so I do not think he would do anything stupid. Yesterday I thought PCS was worth about $14.50 a share. Interesting to see where we close today.
