Ryan Reynolds’ Mint Mobile acquired by T-Mobile

T-Mobile announced on Wednesday that it has acquired Mint Mobile, a budget wireless provider backed by actor Ryan Reynolds, in a deal worth up to $1.35 billion. The move is part of T-Mobile’s ongoing efforts to expand its customer base and strengthen its position in the competitive wireless market.

Mint Mobile, founded in 2016, is a low-cost wireless carrier that has gained popularity among budget-conscious consumers. The company’s unique business model involves selling prepaid plans online in bulk, offering significant discounts to customers who pay for several months of service upfront.

Under the terms of the acquisition, T-Mobile will take over Mint Mobile’s operations and continue to offer its prepaid plans to customers. Mint Mobile will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of T-Mobile, but will retain its brand and management team, including Ryan Reynolds as an owner and spokesperson.

“By bringing Mint Mobile under the T-Mobile umbrella, we’re supercharging our growth with a brand that has relentlessly focused on customer satisfaction and disruption,” said Mike Sievert, CEO of T-Mobile, in a statement. “We’re excited to welcome Ryan Reynolds and the entire Mint Mobile team to the T-Mobile family.” He told Ghnewsbuzz.com.

Ryan Reynolds, who has been a vocal supporter and investor in Mint Mobile since its inception, expressed his enthusiasm for the deal. “I’m thrilled to be part of this acquisition and can’t wait to see what we can achieve together,” he said in a statement. “Mint Mobile has always been about providing affordable, high-quality wireless service, and joining forces with T-Mobile will only help us to reach even more customers.”

The acquisition is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2023, pending regulatory approval. Once finalized, T-Mobile will gain access to Mint Mobile’s customer base, which currently stands at over two million subscribers.

Industry analysts believe that the acquisition will help T-Mobile to expand its market share in the highly competitive wireless market, particularly among budget-conscious customers. The deal also underscores the growing trend of consolidation in the wireless industry, as carriers seek to acquire smaller players and gain a foothold in new markets.
