"SoftBank's CEO Son recently said that Clearwire stockholders like Crest that have urged Clearwire to seek a better deal "can stay as shareholders for however long they want. We are happy with just 65 percent [of Clearwire stock]." For all of the reasons stated above, we do not believe this statement. We firmly believe that, if Sprint does not control 100% of Clearwire, the value that Sprint's suitors have attached to Sprint dissipates, while, at the same time, Clearwire's minority stockholders will still have the opportunity to realize that value for themselves.
"In short, Clearwire is the ultimate prize in the intensifying battle for Sprint. It is time to lift the veil off of these back-to-back merger transactions so Clearwire stockholders can see them for what they are—an attempt to take value from the Clearwire stockholders without offering them fair value. We do not believe that this or any other offer from Sprint can reflect the true value of Clearwire. Only when SoftBank, DISH, or another suitor for the Clearwire spectrum makes a direct offer for the Clearwire stock or Clearwire's assets will this true value be discovered."
