"There's no way" Sprint's (S) attempt to buy Clearwire (CLWR +0.6%) succeeds without a higher bid, says Taran Asset Management's Chris Gleason, one of many institutional Clearwire investors planning to vote against Sprint's $2.97/share offer at Tuesday's meeting. Reuters has uncovered investors holding 31% of Clearwire's public (non-Sprint-owned) shares who oppose the current deal; Sprint needs a majority of public shares to be voted in favor. Clearwire is trading 10% above Sprint's offer price, and 1% below Dish's $3.30/share offer price. (previous)
