    I'm not sure the point of this. SoftBank wasn't allowed to put Money into Sprint. Only buy them.

    I'm thinking about the Simpsons episode in which "the Germans" bought Mr. Burns' nuclear power plant and ended up paying him to take it back.

    Charter has a market value of $113 billion with $60 billion in debt. Add Sprint $146 billion market value and $90 billion in debt plus lease deals will end up adding $19 billion more debt to Sprint so its really $109 billion in debt.

    Add Tmobile - $171 billion market value, $139 billion in debt.

    Son wants to be too big to fail.

    From the Bloomberg link op posted.

    The idea called for the creation of a new publicly traded company that would combine Sprint and Charter and be controlled by Son’s SoftBank, the people said.

    That new combined company would then attempt to buy T-Mobile US Inc., according to one of the people.

    They are cumulative so Sprints market value is not $146 billion but Sprint plus Charter would be $146 billion and so on. I thought that was obvious.

    According to this article posted on Jan 29, 2017, T-Mobile's long term debt is 30 billion. Then again, it could be a fake number. My guess is 1 trillion.

    Is the plan to do a charter deal and then a TMobile deal? I've read that rumor but so many rumors going around

    No, not so much @off the grid. Son is becoming the town cryer.

    I think of that Supertramp song.

    Well can you put your hands in your head, oh no!
    I said dreamer, you're nothing but a dreamer...."
    As a US citizen I have the right to criticize my government. My thanks for this is endless in magnitude. I fear fascism is here in the US.

    That is a cumulative number if Sprint, Charter and Tmobile were all merged as Son wants. I just stated the same thing one post before yours. Long exhale.
