Sprint is mulling the sale of its 4 million-square-foot headquarters campus in Overland Park, Kansas, the company’s chief executive officer announced Wednesday.
CEO Michel Combes said Sprint is considering offers to sell the campus and lease back the space it needs for employees.
The news comes as regulators weigh a proposed $26.5 billion merger between Sprint and rival T-Mobile, the No. 4 and No. 3 U.S. wireless carriers, respectively.
Sprint currently has 6,000 employees on the campus, which has served as the company’s headquarters since 1999. It was designed to accommodate more than twice that number of employees.
