span.p-content div[id^=div-gpt] { line-height: 0px; font-size: 0px;} Group, the majority owner of Sprint, is willing to accept a stock-for-stock with that values at or near its current market price, according to people familiar with the matter.
While the two sides haven’t agreed on an exact value, doesn’t expect to receive much of a premium to Sprint’s current share price and may accept a deal that values the fourth-ranked  wireless carrier at about its $34 billion market capitalisation, said the people. Deutsche Telekom, the majority owner of third-largest wireless provider T-Mobile, previously told it felt shares should be valued at a significant discount to their market value, two of the people said. In recent months, has told it’s willing to come up on value for Sprint, they said.
At current market values, a stock-for-stock would give almost 33 per cent of the combined company and about 39 per cent. plans to consolidate the merged company’s earnings by controlling the board of directors, said one of the people.
