True Whiggs but Son is No Dummy rather then fight higher prices he could very well have that Premium baked into DT Shares . Remember the Sprint / Clearwire when Sprint went down to owing only 49.9% of CLWR Sprint still controlled CLWR.
This could very well be done with TMUS son takes 49.9% control and and say Dish or ever Google that sprint has partnerships and agreements pick up the rest.
49.9% would need no approval and with that much control and a well run plan Son could very will have the other investors agree with all he wants to do.
Remember anything is Possible
As i stated in another Post Son is building out in many directions and it will be his call when and if a Bid hits the table. Remember DT shares unlock in the near future and it could be a private deal just for controlling shares or just under. Nobody really knows other then Son and this Market is not use to dealing with Tight Lip Companies.
Well Whiggs if you recall Sprint already has a signed partnership agreement with Dish and it still remains Tight Lip about it so Google is the newest attraction.
So lets add them all up in order.
Son buys Sprint.
Sprint and Dish enters Partnership.
Sprint in talks with DT for TMUS
Sprint signs Spectrum Deals with smaller carriers.
Sprint and TMUS to form a New Spectrum division for 2015 Spectrum auction
Sprint and Google Rejoin Hands and Teams up to sell Google Apps and round-the-clock customer support to businesses that are looking to hand off their technology management tasks to outside service providers.
This tells me Son has made a lot of Great moves in the past 6 months that will make up for much of the Sub loses Sprint has had and will be only a matter of time before many return or New ones pop in.
Sprints build out is on the move and in many directions and when they meet one best be holding the cards.
What you two may be missing here is the most important fact and that in my opinion is that Sprint may be about to release a major build out this quarter.
Seems to me Google picked Sprint over the larger players to get their Apps and what ever out to the world . Not to mention that a few yrs. back Google was a major investor in Clearwire along with Britehouse and Comcast but bail when the BK word came out and did not want to invest any more money into ClearWire.
Maybe the Topic should have been .............. Old Partners Rejoin Hands
there will be nothing but more B.S. thrown out over this .
( 1 ) if Slim was interested he would have already made a play for TMUS but he is smart enough to know that not only would it take time to pass FCC and Gov. same with Sprint but he brings nothing to the table except money . No Spectrum and No Subs that is the upper hand Sprint has over anyone.
Now some will say here that all his money will help TMUS but that will take yrs. to fill something TMUS has not got and it be my guess that if Sprint and TMUS is as close as others say about a bid being laid on the table I am sure Son has some safe Guards in place already. The joint venture on Spectrum buying is most likely already in Black & White before any bid kind of like Sprint has just signed with smaller carriers and the likes of Dish.
Son seems to have a well planed out vision something this board and a few on it have a problem understanding.
all these new rumors that are in play is no more then a few other Morons trying to earn a $ and we have heard it about Apple and MS in the past but what I really like is the News Son has picked up the Man from Google kind of brings the thoughts back about Google being a major player with Sprint and ClearWire a few yrs, back and could very well lead to something more interesting like maybe another partnership of some sort
just another dip before earnings and all on rumors. The problem with these Lunch Money Penny traders is they have not had to Deal with the Closed Lips like Son and the New Sprint has ever in Sprints History.
Now should the bid hit the table in the latest rumor in August this quarter would be a Great time to release it that is if Sprint /Son dose not wait until Nov. when DT shares are Unlocked and they do a Private deal with say 49.9% with DT and then go after the other few % to give them control at a later date. Then there is always Dish that has a partnership agreement with Sprint that could pick up the remaining shares of DT and live Happy ever after.
That is all it is and that came out from " theflyonthewall " so all you Dummies take it for what is is worth.
Kinda like the $40 or more a share rumor for TMUS LOL. DT wants out and them are the shares that may get the $40 as I said time and time again Sprint / Son only needs controlling interest of TMUS not the whole company and whats to say that Son has not picked up shares already in the mid $20's and $30 range on the public market ?
have you anything to back that up ? I doubt it .
But your posts are fun to read lol
I would be willing to bet he did not take advice from any message board
Take just over 50% control of DT shares at a fixed price today and extend the deal time that should cool the Heels of TMUS not to mention where that Anti-trust lawsuit will be by the FTC against TMUS about Cramming.
Also Tmus cash flow will be draining down with all these ETF they bought this past 6 months and with DT shares being Unlocked come Nov. and free to do what they want with their shares makes it even easier when a vote is not required.
When you take the whole picture in view the only one that may get that $40 a share would be DT and not TMUS share holders.
Sure glad I dumped TMUS back when it was at $35 cause this whole program could make TMUS see the mid $20's again.
why go back when Sprint / Son can add on the open market at will. You know like Son did with Sprint after the merger or have you forgotten that?
Wiggs the street does not have to be impressed.
The street has not been impressed with Sprint for a number of years now but S shares have gone up and that impressed me and that is all that counts .
Street = another Dumb Message Board. the street has called so many errors and covered so many things up that is why this Country is in such the bad shape it is .
Now that you will have to wait and see. But I be willing to bet it wont be all that much as TMUS shares spike from low $20's to the $30's on a merger attempt ( meaning a complete buyout ) .
Son in my opinion was really never worried about a complete buy out not that he wouldn't have excepted it controlling interests would be just as good. That gives him Vote Power along with BOD and with that in hand he can pretty much have it his way at a lot cheaper price
your not going to see nothing . Sprint wants DT shares not the whole merger and in a few months DT shares become UNLOCKED. Looks to me Sprint will take 51% control and leave the other share of DT for Dish that is about 16%. it will turn out to be a three way love affair between Sprint / Dish and TMUS. DT will pass their shares onto the New Investors and depart the U.S. market as the wanted too.
So do not spend that $40 right away it is Not going to happen
No Dish is buying the other 18% from DT and DT will exit the U.S. and Sprint/Dish and TMUS will live Happy ever after. took a Blind person to see this not happening over the last 6 months.
sprint and Dish partnership should have gave the Dumb and Dumber even the Clue
