Clearwire (CLWR) officially endorses Dish's (DISH) $4.40/share tender offer, calling it in the "best interest of Class A stockholders." Clearwire's special committee now unanimously opposes Sprint's (S) $3.40/share buyout offer, and the company has rescheduled a shareholder vote on the Sprint deal set for Thursday to June 24. Dish's offer, which is subject to 25% of Clearwire shares being tendered, is now good until July 2. Even if Sprint's merger with SoftBank (SFTBF.PK) goes through, Dish's possession of a large minority stake in Clearwire gives it leverage to strike a favorable 4G network deal. (WSJ report)
