Sprint today confirmed earlier reports that it is holding discussions with Japan's Softbank. Sprint did not describe the talks as pertaining to an acquisition. Rather, it said Softbank may make a "potential substantial investment" in Sprint. In a statement, Sprint said, "Although there can be no assurances that these discussions will result in any transaction or on what terms any transaction may occur, such a transaction could involve a change of control of Sprint. Sprint does not intend to comment further unless and until an agreement is reached." Softbank is the third-largest wireless network operator in Japan, behind NTT DoCoMo and KDDI.
