Why Has T-Mobile Suspended Its Share Buyback Program?

T-Mobile (TMUS) repurchased ~10.5 million shares for roughly $666 million in the first quarter, which means the shares were repurchased at an average price of $63.43 each. The repurchases were part of the company’s share repurchase program authorizing the buyback of up to $1.5 billion worth of shares through December 31. Also in the first quarter, one of T-Mobile’s largest shareholders, Deutsche Telekom AG, purchased 3.3 million additional shares at an aggregate market value of $200 million.
