The acquisition will be highly accretive through elimination of redundancies, raising the levels of servie to MDU customers and creating the critical mass that makes the MBND-developed kind of high-speed internet service deployment economically feasible.
Also, MBND is not locked in to DTV as its MDU provider which gives it some negotiating leverage not present with the DirecTech side of the house.
It would be a combination of 2 smaller players....we have no idea as to what size is needed to really benefit from econimies of scale to the point where operations will be profitable. The other issue is that the guy in charge, Mandel, is not a visionary who has the ability to bring everything together whether it be via operational synergies and/or additional acquisitions. In regards to M&A he has proven to be completely incompetent..
