Conferencing News - Conferencing News Blog, 10 Oct 2014 [cached]
Sprint has been rumored to be selling its conferencing unit for some time now, but the rumors have reached a fevered pitch over the last month, with Elliot Gold breaking the story recently in TeleSpan. According to TeleSpan's initial report, West will be acquiring Sprint Conferencing very soon, closing down the Kansas operation, and absorbing all of Sprint 's customers. We contacted Sprint to give them an opportunity to clarify the situation, but at the time (Friday, Feb. 4 at 1:20pm) of this writing no communication has come from them.
What does appear to be the case is that Sprint is in current negotiations with an officially unnamed buyer to sell its conferencing business, in some form or fashion. If Elliot Gold of TeleSpan is right in his new report released today however, Sprint seems to want its cake (cash) and eat it too (keep its customers).
Reputed to be a very profitable business unit with its carrier cost structures, immeasurable inter-company benefits, and mature billing and network infrastructures, Sprint has been one of the price leaders over the last several years. Outside of these carrier cost structures and integrated infrastructure, it is unclear how the unit will perform financially in the hands of another operator. It is hard to imagine that a buyer would pay very much for the business if it doesn 't "own" the customers and control its own brand. And if Elliot Gold from TeleSpan is right that the sale price is as much as $180 million, the buyer would be breaking all the recent M&A valuations if the cash is simply for the right to "outsource" conferencing services and never gain outright ownership of the customers.
