The letter also offers a wide variety of reasons why the deal should be approved, with one reason being to "Facilitate the offering of a broad product portfolio, including Apple devices." If you are a MetroPCS shareholder, the deal will bring you $4.06 a share along with ownership of 26% of the stock. T-Mobile's parent company, Deutsche Telekom, will own the remaining 74% of the shares, which will continue to trade publicly.
To vote for the merger, T-Mobile wants you to return the green proxy card and vote "For" all of the proposals. The way this works, if you don't vote or abstain, it is the same as voting against the deal.
The DOJ recently signed off on the transaction leaving the FCC and the Committee on Foreign Investment left to sign on the dotted line. And, of course, MetroPCS' shareholders must approve the deal.
