T-Mobile’s share buyback program could start from December

The company plans on using its collapsed merger with Sprint as a spring board to future M&A deals.

On Thursday, T-Mobile’s CFO disclosed that the third biggest carrier will propose a “significant” share buyback that could begin in December.

The development comes in the wake of the collapse of its merger with Sprint Corp.

While speaking at a Morgan Stanley conference in Barcelona, Carter said the share buyback would be put to the board in about two weeks.

Significantly, Deutsche Telekom, which has a 64% stake in the company could increase its stock holding, said Carter.

He mentioned the shares would be held in treasury and deployed as acquisition currency for future M&A deals, said Carter.

This info underscores and highlights T-Mobile’s intent on acquiring smaller startups, including regional players, who are into Internet of Things (IoT).
