Increase of the stake in T‑Mobile US
In keeping with the declared strategic goal of securing control of T‑Mobile US in the long term, on April 12, 2022, Deutsche Telekom acquired a total of around 21.2 million additional T‑Mobile US shares from SoftBank for a purchase price of USD 2.4 billion (EUR 2.2 billion). To this end, Deutsche Telekom exercised a further portion of the stock options it had received from SoftBank in June 2020 to purchase shares in T‑Mobile US. This gives a weighted average price of around USD 113 per T‑Mobile US share. Upon its completion, the transaction increased Deutsche Telekom’s stake in T‑Mobile US by 1.7 percentage points to 48.4 %. The fair value of the consideration transferred (within the meaning of the IFRSs) amounts to EUR 2.7 billion and comprises a cash payment of EUR 2.2 billion and the fair value of the exercised stock options at the time of exercising of EUR 0.5 billion. The acquisition was made using cash proceeds from the sale of T‑Mobile Netherlands. The percentage of T‑Mobile US shares for which Deutsche Telekom can exercise voting rights, based on an agreement concluded with SoftBank in connection with the acquisition of Sprint, amounted to 51.8 % as of June 30, 2022.
