AT&T reportedly would be able to reduce the price of its T-Mobile USA deal if the carrier can salvage the proposed $39 billion acquisition by divesting assets that represent at least 20% of that figure, according to a published report. AT&T could quit the deal and pay T-Mobile's parent a breakup fee if the government demands concessions worth more than 40% of that figure, the report says. Deutsche Telekom on Tuesday denied published reports that it would not necessarily be entitled to a breakup fee worth $6 billion.
