It didn’t take long for Dish to fire off a public response to Sprint’s compliant to block Dish’s takeover of Clearwire. Here’s what Dish had to say, short and sweet:
“Sprint’s lawsuit is a transparent attempt to divert attention from its failure to deal fairly with Clearwire’s shareholders, as well as to exploit its majority position to block Clearwire’s shareholders from receiving a fair price for their shares. DISH is confident that its superior offer, which has been unanimously recommended by the Clearwire Board, including the majority appointed by Sprint, will be upheld and Clearwire shareholders will be free to realize the 29 percent premium represented by the DISH offer.”
I’m already getting my popcorn ready to have at hand when I read Dish’s answer to Sprint’s complaint. This has all the makings of a great Lifetime Channel movie.
