Sprint (S) +15.6%, Clearwire (CLWR) -2.8%, Dish Network (DISH) -1.7%, and DirecTV (DTV) -1.1%, as the Street mulls the implications of Dish's $25.5B offer for Sprint (S). Dish, which has been looking for a partner for its 4G spectrum, claims a merger will result in $13B in cost/capex synergies, and yield a company with 20% EBITDA growth. Dish would fund the $17.3B cash portion of the deal using $8.2B in existing cash + debt, and foresees debt ratings of B1/B+. Sprint shareholders would own 32% of the company. No one ever accused Charlie Ergen of thinking small. (offer letter) (Dish fact sheet) (Clearwire spectrum offer) (Dish/Clearwire)
