18:26 EDTS, CLWRFCC commissioner's report refutes Sprint study on value of Clearwire
A new study by Harold Furchtgott-Roth, a former commissioner of the FCC, disputes the conclusions of a study commissioned by Sprint Nextel (S) and a separate institutional equity research report published by DA Davidson about the value of Clearwire (CLWR). Furchtgott-Roth said that the Sprint study authored by Dr. Kostas Liopiros -- "Value and Utility of the U.S. 2.5 Ghz Spectrum Band" -- is "unreliable." He said it misstates the value of Sprint's offer for Clearwire and is inconsistent with the public representations of Clearwire officers and the publicly reported financial statements of Clearwire. The Furchtgott-Roth report was funded by Crest Financial Limited, the largest minority shareholder of Clearwire, and was filed by Crest with the FCC and the SEC. According to Furchtgott-Roth: "Throughout the Liopiros Report are statements that implicitly call into question the integrity and reliability of the financial statements of Clearwire. The Liopiros Report states that the value of higher frequency spectrum is less than lower frequency spectrum; the Clearwire financial statements make no such adjustments. The Liopiros Report states that EBS spectrum is worth substantially less than BRS spectrum; the Clearwire financial statements do not treat its EBS and BRS spectrum differently. The Liopiros Report states that unpaired spectrum is worth substantially less than paired spectrum; the Clearwire financial reports make no such distinction or adjustment in value. An analysis of the Clearwire financial statements reveals a value of the Sprint offer of $2.97 per share corresponds to a value of 11c per Mhz pop. The Liopiros Report states the value is 21c per Mhz pop." Furchtgott-Roth further said that the DA Davidson report -- Institutional Equity Research, "Clearwire Corp.," dated April 1, 2013 - repeats the mistaken valuation of the Sprint offer and makes the error of valuing the Sprint offer at 21c or even 22c per Mhz pop, primarily by not excluding the value of other assets. Furchtgott-Roth said that the DA Davidson report "seems to take a rather unsubstantiated and dim view of the accuracy of Clearwire's financial records and any report based upon them."

Sprint (S) said that it is rapidly expanding its retail distribution with its “store-within-a-store” concept at co-branded RadioShack (RSHCQ) locations. General Wireless Operations announced today that it completed the purchase of the RadioShack brand, securing Sprint’s ability to quickly expand its presence and give consumers access to industry-first leasing plans and the latest devices. Sprint will have a presence in 1,435 Sprint-RadioShack stores by the first week of July. About 300 stores will be completely renovated to the new store-within-a-store model at that time, with the remainder scheduled to be completed by the end of the year. These stores will have new signage, new fixtures and a look-and-feel that is similar to other Sprint-owned stores. The addition of the Sprint-RadioShack stores expands Sprint’s total retail footprint to approximately 4,500 locations in the United States.
