Investment adviser to vote against MetroPCS-T Mobile deal

Feb 7 (Reuters) - An investment adviser to shareholders holding about 7.5 million shares of MetroPCS Communications Inc said it intends to vote against the company’s proposed merger with T-Mobile USA.

The shares held by clients of P. Schoenfeld Asset Management LP (PSAM) represent about 2 percent of MetroPCS’s outstanding shares, based on an Oct. 19 regulatory filing.

PSAM said it sent a letter to the boards of MetroPCS and Deutsche Telekom AG, which owns T-Mobile, on Jan. 30 informing them of its decision.

MetroPCS agreed to merge with T-Mobile USA in October, with

Deutsche Telekom taking a 74 percent stake in the combined company.

In its letter, PSAM said, “it would be better for PCS to remain a stand-alone company while examining opportunities to consummate alternative transactions.”
