Deutsche Telekom Puts T-Mobile US Asset Where a Sale Would be More Advantageous

Deutsche Telekom has transferred its 67 percent stake in T-Mobile US into a different holding company offering tax advantages in the event of a sale of T-Mobile US. That doesn't mean any sale is imminent, but does suggest it is viewed as a reasonable development by Deutsche Telekom.

Soon, the attention will shift to which buyer emerges, and then whether U.S. regulators will allow the transaction to proceed. Deutsche Telekom has been there before, as the proposed AT&T acquisition was abandoned because of regulatory and antitrust opposition. 

It won't be especially easier this time around, either.
