Bellevue, Wash. — Clearwire postponed today’s shareholder vote on Sprint’s acquisition bid after Sprint raised its bid to quell opposition by some Clearwire shareholder groups.

In a last-minute attempt to ensure the deal goes through, Sprint raised its bid to acquire the approximately 50 percent of Clearwire that it doesn’t own  to $3.40 per share, up 14 percent from Sprint’s December 2012 offer of $2.97 per share, or about $2.2 billion.

Dish had previously bid $3.30 per share to acquire all Clearwire stock.

T-Mobile USA Back In Black In Q1

T-Mobile USA Back In Black In Q1

By Joseph Palenchar On May 8 2013 - 3:27pm




Bellevue, Wash. — T-Mobile USA posted first-quarter net income of $107 million following two consecutive quarters of net losses and gained more net new subscribers in the quarter than it did in all of 2012.

The first-quarter’s net income to $107 million, however, was still 47 percent below that of the year-ago period but better than the fourth quarter’s $8 million net loss and the third quarter’s $7.7 billion net loss, which was due to a one-time $8.1 billion good-will impairment charge triggered by the planned merger of MetroPCS and T-Mobile.
