13:35 EDTCLWR, S, DISHMount Kellett sends third letter to board of Clearwire
Mount Kellett Capital sent a letter to the Clearwire (CLWR) Board of Directors outlining issues related to, among other things, Clearwire's relationship with Sprint (S). "We have of course been carefully monitoring recent developments concerning Clearwire and its proposed acquisition by Sprint, including the company's announcement on that it had received an unsolicited proposal from DISH (DISH) to acquire Clearwire at a premium to the consideration offered by Sprint, to acquire certain of Clearwire's excess spectrum and to provide financing to Clearwire. The DISH proposal is further evidence of what has been clear to us for many weeks: The Special Committee, in breach of its fiduciary duties to the minority stockholders of Clearwire, utterly capitulated to Sprint's demand to sell the company at a grossly inadequate price; The Special Committee and the Board of Directors generally, in breach of their fiduciary duties and despite public assurances to the contrary, failed to conduct a vigorous process for the monetization of the company's excess spectrum. In light of these circumstances, it is incumbent on the Special Committee to take its time to thoroughly and thoughtfully evaluate the DISH proposal, including how to address certain obstacles to consummating the proposal asserted by Sprint and to negotiate for all possible improvements to the proposal."

Since SoftBank (SFTBF) abandoned its pursuit of Sprint (S), some observers have suggested the company shifted gears to pursue another acquisition, Vodafone (VOD), instead, with one SoftBank executive quoted by the Nikkei Asian Review as having said, "I wouldn't be surprised if our CEO acquired Vodafone, since we are no strangers to each other."
