Deutsche Telekom today put forth its "best and final offer" to MetroPCS today in hopes of gaining shareholder favor. MetroPCS investors are prepared to vote on the merger, which has full U.S. government approval, on April 12. Several large investors are unhappy with the original terms of the deal and have been pushing other shareholders to reject the deal. In today's adjustment, Deutsche Telekom offered to reduce some of the debt owed by T-Mobile/MetroPCS to Deutsche Telekom by $3.8 billion, and it also dropped the interest rate for the loan. "This lower rate reflects the new capital structure of the combined company, the improved capital markets environment in recent months, and the interest rate level of MetroPCS newly issued $3.5 billion of bonds priced in March," said Deutsche Telekom. MetroPCS's largest shareholders have yet to officially respond to the new terms.

Practically giving the company away....

They really want out of the states, huh? Eh?
They will be in control, T-Mobile Usa will still exist. .
Just get this damn merger over with already!!!
It's good for consumers, it's good for both Tmo & Metro, both companies will be in a better position to compete either the other 3 national carriers, especially with spectrum.

Just do this already!!...

The way this works is that since T-mobile USA doesnt have shares, is that there will be a 76/24 split DT/T-mobile USA owning Metro PCS (The combined company). They want to be in USA (DT) That is.

It isnt that confusing is it?
