SoftBank CEO to lay out vision for Sprint

At the company’s annual meeting Thursday evening, Son has to convince shareholders his $21.6 billion bid for Overland Park-based Sprint will generate growth for the Tokyo-based company as it faces a shrinking population at home. SoftBank inched closer to the acquisition after Dish Network Corp. passed on making a new offer by the U.S. carrier’s deadline earlier this week.
