The new date for the meeting will be April 11. The original date of March 28 was changed to correct an administrative error, according to the company.
At that meeting, MetroPCS will have to contend with yet another major stockholder that has stated its opposition to the merger.
Paulson & Co., the largest holder of MetroPCS common stock with a 9.9% share, on Friday filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission its intent "to vote against the MetroPCS/T-Mobile transaction."
Paulson joins P. Schoenfield Asset Management as the second large stockholder to voice unhappiness with the deal. Schoenfield holds 2% of MetroPCS common stock.
