SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Sprint Corp <S.N> and T-Mobile USA Inc <TMUS.O> have ended merger negotiations, the companies said in a joint statement on Saturday. The companies said they ended talks because they “were unable to find mutually agreeable terms.” This would be the second time an attempted merger of Sprint, controlled by SoftBank Group Corp <9984.T>, and T-Mobile, controlled by Deutsche Telekom, has failed. A combined company would have had more than 130 million U.S. subscribers, behind Verizon Communications Inc <VZ.N> and AT&T Inc <T.N.>.
