Disgruntled Clearwire (CLWR) investor Crest Financial is offering Clearwire $240M in convertible debt financing as an alternative to the $80M/month in financing being provided by Sprint (S). Crest, which considers Sprint's $2.97/share deal to acquire Clearwire insufficient, argues its funds would leave Clearwire with enough capital to build 2K 4G LTE cell sites and handle this year's interest payments. Clearwire closed at $3.28 today, 10% above Sprint's offer price.
