Now that the merger is about to be canned and that Sprint has been saying it can't compete I cant help but feel there will be immediate layoffs after the merger is declined. Sprint's way of saying "I told you so" to the DoJ.
In the event the merger does go through it will likely come with heavy divestitures and I imagine sometime around January 2020 the NewCo management will begin cleaning house/cutting costs regardless. Don't say it won't happen either. NewCo will have close to $60B in debt
I guess option B gives us the most longevity? Like choosing between being shot in the head or slowly dying of a disease
