  • With this quote;

    "A company that burns cash and has no growth doesn't have any value".

    Sprint burned $2.1B last quarter and their revenues have been falling since Softdank took over.

    Nuff said!

  • You asked me ,"why would Son dilute himself?"

    You've been around here for awhile, you should remember how this all went down.

    First, SB bought 55% of your company by buying 55% of the outstanding shares. So why don't you still own 45% of the company?

    Because SB diluted you out of the next 24.9% by buying $8B of newly printed shares at $5.25/share.

    Did SB dilute themselves when they put this $8B into THIER company? NO, because they gained ownership and lowered their ave cost per share from $7.30 to a lower number.

    Fast forward to today, and you will see that most of that $8B they injected is now gone and they need to inject more cash into the company. How? They can't pile on more debt because Sprint his buring cash when they should be paying down current debt. So they have to do it in a way in which they get something (higher ownership %) for their cash and those not adding cash (you) have to give up something (lower ownership %). They are not handing you something for free. They are taking more ownership from you and they are doing it at a lower price than they previously did because the value of the company is lower now. It's lower because the $8B cash has been burned and they have a mountain of debt that threatens to wipe out shareholders if things continue on the current path.

    Softdank has no choice but to throw cash on a burning fire in order to buy time. You're nuts to believe they are throwing cash to YOU rather than taking something from you. But then again, it's your job as a Pumper to fool some of the people into thinking this is good for them.

    His mouth is not helping Sprint's cause. He's a shorter's dream CEO.

    At least Hesse had class.

    Your post is full of garbage!

    1) Verizon just bought $18B of spectrum last quarter with their massive FCF.

    2) How many of Sprint's current customers are low revenue and low margin services to the poor? TOO many, and you want more?

    3) I don't trust the CEO at all!

    4) How can the cash burn be peaking if they have so much network catching up to still do?

    5) They DILUTED just a week after they said they didn't need to.

    6) Huge debt issues. That's why they are already diluting. They blew through Softdank's first $8B injection!

    7) EPS numbers are irrelevant. Buffett says they can be just about anything a company wants them to be. "Wall Street" could have said (.50), would that make (.01) even better? They have NEGATIVE cashflow and dwindling cash. That's all you need to know.

    8) You don't understand NASDAQ delisting rules obviously. You think it's just a $/share figure.

    9) I couldn't care less what a wells fargo "analyst" says. They work for their clients, not for the general public. I bet their clients wanted OUT.

    10) You seem very naive.
    8) You clearly don't understand

    Wynn Macau's cash fell more than the 61% plunge in earnings. Not much left!

    Wynn Macau now carries more current liabilities than current assets.

    I believe more debt or share dilution will be necessary to weather this storm. Not good. They threw away too much cash on dividends and left the company weak imo.

    Counting revenue twice is not a legit business plan. CLWR used to count their revenue on their "earnings" report, and then Sprint would claim the same revenue on their "earnings" reports. Neither company was successful and CLWR shares traded down to .80 I believe before being bought out by Sprint/Softdank.

    Fast forward to today. Sprint is now the struggling CLWR with a mountain of debt that they can't pay. The new buzz is this phone leasing sheme. Will Sprint run the scheme and claim the revenue, or are they too broke to front the phones? Softdank says they will front the phone leasing scheme. So WHO claims the revenue, Sprint, Softdank, or both? Sprint already proved that CLWR and Sprint claiming the same revenue was a mistake.

    If Softdank takes on the leasing scheme, then Sprint just lost a big chunk of it's revenue. And their revenue has already been dwindling since Softdank took over. They already can't afford to spend enough on infrastructure to stick with VZ and T.

    Heck, T-Mobile just passed them as the #3 carrier now! And I only have Sprint 2G in my area!

    SB itself is a pink slip stock. But they are listed on other exchanges. Sprint going to pink slips is bad for those who don't own 85% of the company. Why? Because it will become less liquid. SB can then allow it to fall below $1 and then pull a reverse-slipt to lower the number of shares that they don't own. You think this is fine because the share price goes up by a factor of the reverse-split. Problem is, when it falls back down below $1, you have lost 2/3 of your money AGAIN if the R/S was 1:3, or 75% if the R/S was 1:4, ect ect. They could buy the reduced number of shares for fractions of what they currently would have to pay. basically buy you off for pennies on the dollar.

    Because SB diluted you out of the next 24.9% by buying $8M of newly printed shares at $5.25/share.

    Did SB dilute themselves when they put this $8B into THIER company? NO, because they gained ownership and lowered their ave cost per share from $7.30 to a lower number.

  • Or will they pull the Sprint/Clearwire trick where the revenue was counted twice? We know how the double dipping ended up for CLWR shareholders.

    Softdank MAY be able to make a leasing program work, but it has nothing to do with making Sprint profitable. It's Softdank's money and their gig. Sprint should not be able to claim the revenues if they don't have the cash to launch the program. It should be a LOSS of revenue for Sprint as the $22 should, at least partially, come from what was previously included in a customers 2-yr wireless plan. The phone portion of the revenue has to be stripped out now if it's not Sprint running the leasing program.

    Sprint customers will figure it out if Sprint thinks they can charge previous rates PLUS a $22/mo phone charge. So somewhere Sprint has to be bleeding more revenue. Moffett is probably right.

    THAT'S the problem. The company is not worth even $150M more yet the stock over-reacted to a very weak bailout. Weak because they burned $150M every 6-7 days last quarter! And Softdank has a ceiling with these equity sales as far as the 20%'ers are concerned. They can't exceed 85% ownership without being delisted from the NYSE.

    Saddest part is that bagholders can't see that they are diluted faster when share prices are lower. $150M would have bought far fewer shares if the share price was $10/share. The baggies can't even feel the rug being pulled out from under them!

    Still waiting for Sprint to build 3G in my area. Radio Shack salespeople used to discourage sales of Sprint phones because it costs Sprint too much to roam on Verizon's network. LOL.

    Don't rent space on a cell tower to cover more people, just have salespeople push potential customers right into Verizon's welcoming arms. BRILLIANT!

    Yeah, leasing Iphones will turn it all around. DOH!

    Probably thinks Softdank cares about the 20%'ers too. ROTFLMAO!

  • I don't see how this will build infrastructure that they lack cash to build.

    If I'm going to rent a phone, I'll do it on Verizon's superior network.

    Why wasn't you pumping at $3.10?

    It doesn't look good when you always pump high and then disappear when low.
