Sprint Nextel Corp. to Finalize Softbank Corp. Deal Sprint Nextel Corp. announced its quarterly results and reported quarterly losses at 44 cents per share, marginally higher than the 43 cents per share in net loss it incurred for the corresponding quarter of last year. However, it still performed better-than-expected as consensus estimates for the loss stood at 46 cents per share. Sprint Nextel Corp. also reported 3.2 percent increase in its revenue to $9 billion, again beating consensus estimate of $8.9 billion in revenue.

The deal is likely to be finalized this year and is worth $20 billion. Through this deal, Sprint Nextel Corp. will buy a stake in Clearwire Corporation, which recently reported its fourth quarter results and missed consensus estimates for both the top-line and bottom-line.

While the entire telecom sector is struggling with intense competition and the resulting price wars, Sprint Nextel Corp. still stood out with its weak results. The company failed to maintain its Average Revenue per User. However, its merger with SoftBank Corp. is expected to make things a little easier for Sprint Nextel. The company is looking to compete with AT&T and is going ahead with its 4G deployment. It is expected to yield the benefits of massive capital outlay for these infrastructural upgrades. The domestic teleco is moving in a positive direction as Omega Advisors upped their stake in Sprint Nextel Corp. by 30 percent in the fourth quarter. Further, there had been a number of insider purchases over the past couple of months. These transactions show management's confidence in the future direction of the company.
