Arora Plans To Buy Stake In SoftBank

Nikesh Arora, President of SoftBank Group Corp. (TSE:9984) is planning to buy about ¥60 billion of Softbank's shares, saying he wants to make a 'personal bet' as a measure of his commitment. "This is a large transaction for me, and involves taking an enormous risk," Arora said in a filing to the Tokyo Stock Exchange. "However, I am extremely confident about the future of the SoftBank Group."

Softbank Considered Selling Sprint

SoftBank Group Corp. (TSE:9984) said it bought an additional 22.9 million shares in Sprint Corporation (NYSE:S). SoftBank, which owns about 80% of Sprint, said the share purchases totalling about $87 million were made through subsidiary Galaxy Investment Holdings Inc. SoftBank said it does not expect that its ownership in Sprint would increase to 85% or more as a result of the purchase. SoftBank had lost confidence in Sprint and was considering selling it as Sprint had been burning through cash because of monthly leasing plans that require US wireless carriers to pay vendors for devices up front.
