07:01 EDTVZ, TMUST-Mobile to acquire 700 MHz A-block spectrum for $2.365B from Verizon Wireless
T-Mobile US (TMUS) announced that its wholly-owned subsidiaries T-Mobile USA, Inc. and T-Mobile License, LLC have signed agreements to purchase certain 700 MHz A-Block spectrum licenses from Verizon Wireless (VZ, VOD) for $2.365B in cash and the transfer of certain AWS and PCS spectrum licenses, which have an aggregate estimated value of approximately $950M. The transactions, combined with T-Mobile’s existing A-Block holdings in Boston, will result in T-Mobile having important low-band spectrum in 9 of the top 10 and 21 of the top 30 markets across the United States. Also, as part of the transaction, the two companies will realign spectrum blocks in certain markets, primarily in northern California and the Atlanta area. The agreements are subject to approval by the Federal Communications Commission and the Department of Justice, and other customary closing conditions. Following regulatory approval, these transactions are expected to close in mid-2014.
