AT&T Chief Laid Plans for His Exit. That Set Off an Activist Challenge.

Plans by CEO Randall Stephenson to leave the helm to a longtime ally triggered the threat of a proxy fight by an aggressive Wall Street activist investor

By
Sept. 13, 2019 6:43 pm ET

Randall Stephenson, AT&T Inc.’s longtime boss, got an unexpected phone call Sunday evening from a hedge-fund manager at Elliott Management Corp., one of Wall Street’s biggest and most aggressive activist investors.

The call was brief and cordial, but behind it was a stinging rebuke of the telecom veteran’s mission to turn the phone company into a media giant and leave a top lieutenant to finish the job. Investor Jesse Cohn told Mr. Stephenson the hedge fund had concerns about AT&T’s strategy and execution, reflecting ...

WSJ twice today showed it can't write, and it doesn't understand even an FOMC statement.

WSJ:
a move that would mark a mark a sharp course correction in strategy for the phone giant.

Warner Bros. Faces Big Profit Share on Record-Setting ‘Joker’ Haul

Not seeing the brooding character-study as a blockbuster, studio unloaded a substantial share to outside investors

By
Oct. 26, 2019 9:19 am ET

Record returns for “Joker” have the movie’s backers laughing their way to the bank, but the studio that made the film, Warner Bros., could have reaped even bigger profits if it hadn’t unloaded a substantial share of the film to outside investors, according to people familiar with terms of the film’s financing.

On Thursday, the movie became the top-grossing R-rated film of all time after reaching a total of $788.3 million world-wide, according to Warner Bros., a unit of AT&T Inc. The previous record of $782.6 million was..

AT&T's plan over its next three years includes continued modest annual dividend growth, using 50% to 70% of post-dividend free cash flow to retire about 70% of the shares issued for the Time Warner deal, retiring all the acquisition debt from the Time Warner deal and a continued review of its portfolio with no major acquisitions.

"We have closely evaluated the company's three-year plan and support the steps toward a faster-growing, more profitable, focused and shareholder-friendly company," Elliott partner Jesse Cohn and associate portfolio manager Marc Steinberg said in a statement.

The company will also sell non-core assets and expects to close about $14 billion of such transactions in 2019 and between $5 billion to $10 billion in 2020.

TMUS opened a new front in the cellphone pricing wars, unveiling a monthly data plan that starts at $15 as the company responds to critics that its planned merger with Sprint Corp. will lessen competition.

Half the Cricket rate.

AT&T's (T) prepaid Cricket service offers a similar 2GB plan for $30 a month. Sprint's Boost charges $35 a month for 3GB.

T-Mobile's proposed takeover of Sprint, the No. 4 provider, has secured approval from federal telecommunications and antitrust officials, but has been delayed by an antitrust suit brought by a coalition of state attorneys general.

The states, led by New York and California, worry the deal would stifle competition, especially in the market for prepaid mobile plans that tend to cost less. A trial is set for Dec. 9.

T-Mobile Chief Executive John Legere said he wrote to attorneys general Thursday morning, including New York's Letitia James, laying out the new pricing plan and other moves, and said he had met with several in recent weeks to hear their concerns.

"What's important to these states is exactly the things we're talking about," Mr. Legere said, adding that he was confident the Sprint deal would be able to progress after either a settlement or successful trial.

In addition to offering the $15 prepaid plan, T-Mobile said it would also offer free in-home internet for some low- income and rural households with children, as well as free wireless service to first responders. It plans to offer free internet to 10 million households with children, a move that amounts to a $10 billion commitment by the combined company. First responders will have access to free 5G wireless service for 10 years, T-Mobile said.
