A good day for business. Ryan Reynolds revealed that T-Mobile will acquire his phone company, Mint Mobile, for $1.35 billion.
“Mint Mobile is the best deal in wireless and today’s news only enhances our ability to deliver for our customers,” the Deadpool star, 46, said in a statement released by T-Mobile on Wednesday, March 15. “We are so happy T-Mobile beat out an aggressive last-minute bid from my mom Tammy Reynolds as we believe the excellence of their 5G network will provide a better strategic fit than my mom’s slightly-above-average mahjong skills. I am so proud of the entire Mint team and so excited for what’s to come.”
The budget phone company is under the umbrella of the Ka’ena Corporation, alongside Ultra Mobile — which T-Mobile will also obtain in the deal. Additionally, the cell phone company will pay up to a maximum of $1.35 billion in a combination of 39 percent cash and 61 percent stock to acquire Ka’ena and its subsidiaries.
