Paulson & Co. Responds To Deutsche Telekom's Improved Offer For MetroPCS

NEW YORK, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Paulson & Co. Inc. ("Paulson"), the largest MetroPCS shareholder, owning 36.3 million shares or 9.9% of the shares outstanding as of the record date, today stated that it appreciates the substantial improvement to the terms of Deutsche Telekom's offer for MetroPCS. 

Paulson thanks Deutsche Telekom for its willingness to consider the views of MetroPCS shareholders and adjust the consideration to the benefit of all shareholders.

Paulson believes the $3.8 billion reduction in debt combined with the 50 basis points reduction in interest rate are material improvements for MetroPCS shareholders and strengthen the pro forma company.

While Paulson needs to review the revised proxy statement before making a final decision, Paulson intends to vote for the merger as restructured.
