On July 30, 2012, Mr. C. Kevin Landry, a member of the Board of Directors of MetroPCS Communications, Inc. (the “Company”), notified the Company of his decision not to stand for reelection as a Class III director of the Company upon the expiration of his current term, which expires at the conclusion of the Company's 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.
Until the close of the Company's 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, Mr. Landry will continue to serve as a director and as Chairman of the Compensation Committee and as a member of both of the Finance and Planning and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committees of the Company.
Mr. Landry's decision to not stand for reelection is not as a result of any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company's operations, policies or practices. Mr. Landry stated that his decision to not stand for reelection is based on, among other things, health issues and the fact that the funds which are associated with TA Associates, L.P., for which Mr. Landry is Chairman, have substantially reduced their equity holdings in the Company.
The Company expresses its sincere appreciation to Mr. Landry for his service as a director of the Company.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
