  • Frontier to Buy Verizon Landlines in $8.6 Billion Cash/Stock Deal (FTR)

    Telecom provider Frontier Communications Corp (FTR) said Wednesday that it has reached a deal with Verizon (VZ) to purchase several million rural phone access lines in an $8.6 billion cash/stock deal. Frontier, which is based in Stamford, Connecticut, said that the deal will increase its access lines from 2.3 million to more than 7 million. The company specializes in providing landline phone and Internet service to rural customers. The deal, which is expected to close within the next year, states that Verizon shareholders will get $5.3 billion in Frontier common stock, and $3.3 billion in cash and debt securities. About 11,000 Verizon employees will keep their jobs and work for Frontier, the companies said. The phone lines being sold reside mainly in rural areas in Arizona, California, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Washington, Wisconsin and West Virginia. The sale is part of Verizon's continued efforts to shed its traditional landline phone service, and instead concentrate on upgrading customers to newer FiOS fiber optic TV, Internet, and phone service. Frontier stock rose 5 cents, or +0.6%, in morning trading Wednesday, while Verizon shares rose 11 cents, or +0.4%. The Bottom Line We had removed shares of FTR from our "Recommended" list on Oct.6, when the shares were trading at $11.15. The company has a 13.21% dividend yield, based on last night's closing stock price of $7.57. The stock has technical support in the $5 price area. If the shares can firm up, we see overhead resistance around the $9.00-9.50 price levels. We would remain on the sidelines for now. Frontier Communications Corp (FTR) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 2.8 out of 5 stars.
