“Chairman Charlie Ergen seemed to play Hamlet last week at the AllThingsD conference as to whether DISH would sell its spectrum if it cannot find a network partner. He also reiterated his $3.30 offer for Clearwire (CLWR-NR), although it is difficult to see how he coerces Sprint (S-NR) into abandoning or sharing control. Our base wireless valuation on a shared development approach is $10.7B, but DISH’s litigiousness, most recently suing ESPN for $150mm over a Most Favored Nation pricing clause, is likely another impediment to partnerships given the convoluted provisions necessary for a shared network launch or a sale/wholesaling arrangement.,” Wunderlich’s analyst commented.
