Replying to:  Buyout/Merger????? by panasonic   Apr 10, 2012, 1:35 PM

Someone please rip apart this thinking for calculating what USCC is worth in terms of market cap when compared to the recent Tmobile/Metro PCS buyout/merger.

Metro PCS shareholders receive 26% of Tmobile and 1.5 billion cash.
Tmobile valued at 39 billion from att purchase offer that fell through.

39 billion X 26% = 10.15 billion + 1.5 billion cash= 11.65 billion. This is essentially the price or value what Metro PCS is worth in the merger between companies

Metro PCS has 9.3 million customers. Making each customer worth $1250

USCC has 5.5 million customers? = market cap of 6.875 billion or approximatley $75 per share. (currently at $37)

I realize this is very vague, but want to know if there is any logic to this thinking. Ironically, every buyout in telecom has had "a per customer price" between $1,000 to $1,250. VZ/alltell, att/cingular, att/tmobile.

Am I way off?
