Crest Financial, which owns 8% of Clearwire (CLWR), intends to ask the FCC to block Sprint's (S) acquisition of the approximately 50% of Clearwire it doesn't own and the sale of 70% of Sprint to Japan's Softbank. Crest says the $2.2B Sprint-Clearwire deal "grossly undervalues Clearwire" and therefore the operator's spectrum holdings, which would hurt government revenue from auctions of licenses. The Crest request would add to one from Dish (DISH).
