Default Tmo MetroPCS Merger-[UPDATE] Shareholders approve merger

Quote:
Hot on the heels of reports that the FCC would approve the T-Mobile merger at the bureau level and not a full vote — comes exactly that result. The flash just hit Bloomberg News, leaving any remaining obstacles to the merger to come from the MetroPCS shareholder meeting in April.
- Tmo News


UPDATE: Deutsche Telekom has confirmed that MetroPCS's shareholders have approved of the deal. DT CEO René Obermann described the news as "a major step" for his company," going on to say that the MetroPCS merger is very important to his company because it allows T-Mobile to be "more aggressive" in the U.S.

Now that the T-Mobile-MetroPCS merger has gained the approval of MetroPCS's shareholders, the deal has all of the approval necessary to reach completion. Deutsche Telekom expects that the merger will close on May 1. As part of the deal, MetroPCS's stockholders will receive a cash payment of $1.5 billion along with a 26 percent stake in the new company. The combined entity will go by the legal name of "T-Mobile US." Deutsche Telekom's full announcement can be found right here. - Phonedog - (thanks thebryceee)

metroPCS shareholders will receive $4.06/share cash, the stock will reverse split 1-for-2 and will then trade as T-Mobile US, Inc. The New York Stock Exchange ticker symbol for the T-Mobile US shares, will be TMUS. Deutsche Telekom will own 74% of the shares and the lockup period (they agree not to sell any shares) is 18 months. metroPCS shareholders will own the remaining 26%.

The interesting vote to occur was proposal 11 on change-in-control payments to the metroPCS executives. Although it also passed, the votes against were in the hundred-millions, versus the vote counts for the other 10 proposals.
