bigsnake49 Posted October 30, 2013 Share Posted October 30, 2013 Reuters) - Sprint Corp posted a decline in third-quarter revenue on Wednesday as it lost more subscribers than expected following the shutdown of its older iDen network. Sprint, the No. 3 U.S. mobile operator which is 80 percent owned by SoftBank, reported net subscriber losses of 360,000 for the quarter. Six analysts contacted by Reuters expected losses of roughly 313,000, on average. The company had warned that third-quarter numbers would be hurt by departures of corporate customers because of Sprint's shutdown at the end of June of its iDen network, which was used mostly by business customers. Sprint reported a profit of $383 million, compared with a loss of $767 million in the year-ago quarter, before Sprint's deal with SoftBank and its July purchase of Clearwire Corp. The company said the latest quarter was helped by a one-time, non-cash, $1.4 billion gain, net of taxes, related to its previously held investment in Clearwire. Revenue fell to $8.68 billion from $8.76 billion. http://news.yahoo.com/sprint-posts-decline-third-quarter-revenue-111749458--sector.html 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
