SoftBank (SFTBF.PK) CEO Masayoshi Son continues to insist his firm won't raise its offer for Sprint (S +0.3%) in response to Dish's (DISH) bid. "Why should we? We are already providing a better deal than the Dish proposal." Son goes on to call Dish CEO Charlie Ergen an "amateur" who is "desperate" to find a use for Dish's 4G spectrum. He adds SoftBank's offer is worth $7.65/share to Sprint, and Dish's $6.31/share, after factoring synergies, delays, and penalties; Dish values its proposal at $7, and SoftBank's at $6.22.
