Sprint and T-Mobile executives said Sunday that neither company will owe the other if regulators block their proposed deal. However, a filing on Monday revealed that T-Mobile could owe Sprint $600 million under certain other circumstances, if it decides to back away from the transaction.

Why it matters: Despite the confidence of both CEOs, a good deal of uncertainty still hangs over the deal, including whether it can gain regulatory approval.
