Softbank's Jockeying for the Inside Track
6:15 AM PT
A Sprint T-Mobile merger may appear almost impossible because of early regulator pushback, but I expect Softbank's Masayoshi Son to pull out all the stops as he continues to work with regulators. I am not saying the deal will absolutely get done. However, Son has demonstrated that he is willing to bend until he wins approval. I think that's exactly what's happening behind the scenes right now.
is going on with Sprint Softbank? What will the company look like when it
finally emerges from its cocoon? Who else will it merge with? Where will it be
based? There has been quite a bit of transformational work going on.
and Softbank won U.S. government approval after months of vigorous debate and
got together last summer. It once seemed doubtful the merger would happen, yet
it did. Then Sprint Softbank went quiet. It started rebuilding the Sprint
network. It said that it would emerge as one of the industry's leaders.
addition to rebuilding Sprint's existing network, Softbank seems very interested
in making other acquisitions in the U.S. marketplace. T-Mobile may be a target,
although no official offer has been made. So far, it appears T-Mobile would be a
willing participant in such a deal. U.S. regulators, though, are another story.
In Until You Win
U.S. regulators seem opposed to a Sprint, T-Mobile merger. That typically would
be enough to convince most companies to drop the idea and move on. However,
that's not what I think will happen here.
same kind of negative talk surrounded the Sprint, Softbank merger. No one
thought it stood much of a chance -- yet it did happen. Why? Masayoshi Son, CEO
with regulator push back once again, Masayoshi Son, the man who doesn't know the
meaning of the word "no," is about to make his case directly to the
American people, business community and regulators. His mission: to convince
everyone that further consolidation would improve the wireless industry.
