In a separate statement, Sprint said its agreement with Radio Shack was created to protect it in the event of another bankruptcy. It had about 4,000 stores, and emerged from bankruptcy with about 1,700 stores. However, "the Sprint relationship did not yield the benefits that (General Wireless) had anticipated".
"It became apparent to the debtors that not only would they not receive the originally projected cash commissions in 2016, but they likely would not receive commissions from Sprint, even at a substantially reduced amount until 2018", Rogers said.

The announcement comes even though RadioShack said it trimmed expenses by 23 percent past year while growing profit 8 percent, according to a news release Wednesday.
