    • The company say it has a second sale-leaseback deal with Mobile Leasing Solutions on devices, providing $1.1B in cash proceeds.
    • Separately, it's signed an 18-month bridge financing deal with Mizuho Bank providing $2B in additional liquidity.
    • Those moves are atop $2.2B in network-related financing from earlier this month. The sale-leaseback deal will be accounted for as on-balance sheet financing (assets will continue to be depreciated).

  • Will Tues earnings report show measurable progress? Customer growth in a super saturated market. Will the recent initiatives put in place to deal with the debt yield positive results that are favorable to Mr. market? What will sprints forward guidance be? Claures insight on The negative fundamentals of sprints business shown below demonstrate that he's paying close attention, but, paying close attention is one thing, remedying the problems are another matter.

    Excerpts;
    This is one of the most difficult turnarounds, probably, in the world: [I took over] a company that burned $5 billion in cash, lost $800 million and had $32 billion of debt," he added. "I've taken on the challenge because I find it hard to understand why a company with over $35 billion in revenue cannot turn a profit. A company that has more customers than the population of Canada, and a company that has one of the highest average revenue-per-user [figures] in the world. There are structural disadvantages that we're going to fix one by one, and we're going to turn around Sprint."

    No one knows for sure whether Sprint is participating in the current TV broadcast auction. My Guess is The billionaire genius and entrepreneur, Masa Son could have formed some kind of a third-party entity via Softbank and entered into the bidding. I guess we will know when we're supposed to know.

    VZ Tmus & AT&T earnings are now public. Sprint reports next week. With the other three carriers reporting huge sub gains, it doesn't look good for Sprint? Cramers musing below was on target.

    excerpt below from AT&T earnings.
    The company added 2.3 million North American wireless connections, it said.

    In the U.S., the company had 1.8 million net adds, it said.

    and Legere's fuzzy math on ' after-tax impact' of a spectrum gain? Yikes....Mr Market isn't impressed though..

    Before today's opening bell, the Bellevue, WA-based wireless carrier reported earnings of 56 cents per share, boosted by 46 cents per share by an after-tax impact of a spectrum gain on earnings, the Wall Street Journal reports. Excluding the gain, adjusted earnings were 10 cents per share.

    so, since VZ lost 8,000 postpaid subs, Tmus added 877,000 postpaid subs, this leaves AT&T who reports today after market close and then Sprint on 5-3 before market opens. IF Tmus churn rose, as alleged below due to Sprint's aggressive competition, then all the pressure must be on AT&T.

    T-Mobile said it added 2.2 million subscribers in Q1, up from 1.8 million in the year earlier period. Prepaid subscriber additions jumped to 807,000 from 73,000. T-Mobile added 877,000 postpaid phone lines vs. 748,000 a year earlier.

    “Bad debt declined sequentially, highlighting efforts to improve credit policies,” said Mike McCormack, analyst at Jefferies, in a report.

    Verizon on April 21 reported Q1 results and said it lost 8,000 postpaid phone subscribers. AT&T reports Q1 earnings after the market close today.

    Bellevue, Wash.-based T-Mobile raised its 2016 postpaid phone subscriber forecast to 3.4 million at its midpoint of guidance, up from its earlier estimate of 2.9 million.

    Tmus "Churn ticked up slightly, likely on the heels of more aggressive competition from Sprint," New Street Research analyst Jonathan Chaplin said in a research note

    Numbers look good. Legere deserves credit. Marcelo, it's almost ShowTime.

    In terms of free cash flow for 2016, investors are looking for $1.5 billion to $2 billion and "we are at $1.9 billion," Chaplin said.

    T-Mobile said revenue jumped 10.6 percent to $8.6 billion. Analysts on average had expected revenue of $8.43 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

    It reported net income of $479 million, or 56 cents per share, for the first quarter, compared with a loss of $63 million, or 9 cents per share, a year earlier. This blew past analysts' expectations of 10 cents per share.

    To enhance its network capacity, T-Mobile has filed to participate in the U.S. government's auction of low-frequency spectrum, or airwaves, that kicked off in March. It has said it plans to spend about $10 billion in the auction.

    T-Mobile expects a "successful outcome" in the auction and is investing in adding new retail locations, Legere said on an earnings call.

    Churn, or the rate at which subscribers defect to other networks, for postpaid users was 1.33 percent in the quarter, up slightly from 1.3 percent a year ago.

    "Churn ticked up slightly, likely on the heels of more aggressive competition from Sprint," New Street Research analyst Jonathan Chaplin said in a research note.

    Looks like Sprint is making big red (and its debt+quarterly divvy payments) realign its strategy going forward. Is Marcellos turnaround plan taking hold ?

    Verizon’s Profit Rises, but Revenue Misses EstimatesCarrier reaffirms that earnings may plateau this year as it works through changes it made to keep wireles plans in line with competitors
    By RYAN KNUTSON and ANNE STEELE
    Updated April 21, 2016 8:42 p.m. ET
    Verizon Communication Inc.’s deal to acquire AOL last year is starting to pay off.

    The company said its AOL unit posted its highest first-quarter revenue in five years, helping the carrier to post a slim gain in revenue to $32.17 billion. Without its contribution of $669 million, revenue would have declined 1.5%.

    The acquisition is part of Verizon’s continued push into mobile video and advertising as it seeks to broaden its...
