Item 8.01 — Other Events

T-Mobile US, Inc. (NASDAQ: TMUS) (“T-Mobile” or the “Company”) issued a press release this morning providing a preliminary view of switching trends and several key customer results for the third quarter of 2016. The Company shared that overall industry postpaid porting ratios are improving versus the previous quarter, including ports with each of the three major wireless carriers over Q2 2016. The Company also reported that quarter to date the Company has added approximately 650,000 prepaid net customer additions and 753,000 T-Mobile branded postpaid phone net customer additions. The 753,000 T-Mobile branded postpaid phone net customer additions represents the quarter to date pro forma number excluding the impact of certain co-branded customers. As the Company previously announced, it entered into a transaction whereby the Company sold marketing and distribution rights to certain T-Mobile co-branded customers to a current MVNO partner. Beginning September 1, 2016, when the transaction closed, these customers will be reported as wholesale customers on a go forward basis. As further information, there were 47,000 net customer deactivations for the T-Mobile co-branded customers for the third quarter through September 1, 2016 excluded from the pro forma number above.

The Company reiterated its commitment to its current financial guidance and full year outlook and will provide a full update on its growth outlook for 2016 as part of its Q3 2016 earnings report in late October.

These customer results are preliminary. The Company’s customer results for the full third quarter of 2016, which are subject to completion of the Company's quarter-end closing review procedures, may vary.
