Concerns Surrounding the T-Mobile-Sprint Merger

On April 29, T-Mobile (TMUS) and Sprint (S), the third- and fourth-largest US mobile operators, announced a merger aimed to raise competition with dominant players Verizon (VZ) and AT&T (T) and creating a stronger network with improved spectrum and higher cost synergies. The proposed merger deal is an all-stock offer for Sprint shareholders that would give Sprint an implied enterprise value of $59.0 billion.
