10:50 EDTVZAT&T, Verizon could find it hard to sell enterprise businesses, CTFN says
The wireline units of AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) that serve corporate customers may be viewed as good units to sell if the companies need to raise cash to help defray spectrum acquisition costs, but a small number of potential buyers and low EBITDA multiples for the units could make any such divestitures challenging, contended CTFN. Level 3 (LVLT) could be seen as a potentially interested buyer, but a source within the company told CTFN that purchasing units that are part of other companies, known as a "carve out," doesn't match the company's usual M&A strategy.
