Pretty much from the get-go...
...I assumed that DT KNEW that the deal would be blocked and their plan was just to pull in an easy 3 billion. Actually selling T-M would have been a bonus, but keeping it AND getting easy money was the actual plan.
"Even following the termination of the agreement with AT&T, Deutsche Telekom expects to remain within the communicated ranges for certain financial performance indicators used to assess the financial performance of the company."
...sounds to me like they made their financial projections based on $3b, instead of $39bil.
Right now, DT management has got to be thinking "Set the bait and drop your line in again, Johann -- they'r really biting today!"
Or am I just being silly and cynical?
