Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of MetroPCS Communications, Inc. Buyout11:42 EDT Wednesday, October 03, 2012 WILMINGTON, Del. (Business Wire) -- Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of MetroPCS Communications, Inc. (“MetroPCS” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PCS) regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of law related to the Company's entry into an agreement with Deutsche Telekom (“Deutsche Telekom”) to combine T-Mobile USA (“T-Mobile”) and MetroPCS in a transaction valued at approximately $1.5 billion.

Under the terms of the proposal, MetroPCS will declare a 1 for 2 reverse stock split, make a cash payment of $1.5 billion to its shareholders (approximately $4.09 per share prior to the reverse split) and acquire all of T-Mobile's capital stock by issuing to Deutsche Telekom 74% of MetroPCS's common stock on a pro forma basis. The investigation concerns whether MetroPCS's board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for MetroPCS's shareholders before entering into an agreement with Deutsche Telekom.
