Sprint-T-Mobile merger: SoftBank CEO running out of time
« on: April 12, 2018, 01:34:50 pm »

Sprint’s latest round of merger talks with T-Mobile, reported earlier this week, came just five months after their previous deal negotiations ended. This is the companies’ third attempt to clinch a deal in the last four years.

While the time window for a deal is not clearly defined, the companies need to act before a U.S. wireless spectrum auction in November. Sprint’s and SoftBank’s deteriorating finances and the 2020 U.S. presidential election also make it unlikely they will get another chance, sources close to the negotiations and analysts said.

“The view is, if they are going to pursue a merger, now is the time,” Macquarie analyst Amy Yong said. “T-Mobile can help them turn around the network.”
