(Reuters) — T-Mobile and Sprint plan to announce a merger agreement without any immediate asset sales, as they seek to preserve as much of their spectrum holdings and cost synergies as they can before regulators ask for concessions, according to people familiar with the matter. While it is common for companies not to unveil divestitures during merger announcements, T-Mobile’s and Sprint’s approach shows that the companies plan to enter what could be challenging negotiations with U.S. antitrust and telecommunications regulators without having made prior concessions. Reuters reported last week that some of the U.S. Justice Department’s antitrust staff were skeptical about the deal, which would combine the thi... Read More

There, lawmakers could leave the agreement the same, impose tweaks, or go all the way to reinstating sanctions against Iran, effectively ending the deal. But while the fulfillment of Iran's nuclear ambitions remain years away even if the deal falls apart, Trump's actions raise questions about whether increased tension will in turn lead to increased Ira...
