T-Mobile has made a revised merger offer to Sprint, say sources speaking to the Wall Street Journal. Sprint hasn't had a profitable year in a decade, leaving a pile of credits from net operating losses that could benefit T-Mobile. The investment ignited speculation about Son and SoftBank trying to revive merger talks. But, he continued, "we have been clear all along that a deal with anyone will have to result in superior long-term value for T-Mobile's shareholders compared to our outstanding stand-alone performance and track record". Sources had originally stated that Sprint chose to call off the acquisition because Deutsche Telekom was looking to get the majority of control over the entity resulting from the merger; though some Sprint executives were reportedly okay with this, others allegedly wanted more. Softbank CEO Masayoshi Son personally approached Charter about a merger, and talks at this point are reported to be strictly exploratory and preliminary in nature, but include a number of higher-ups from both companies.
