Nextel affiliate shareholder wants to hold out

One of the largest shareholders in Nextel affiliate UbiquiTel wants the company to hold out for more money than the proposed $1.3 billion that Sprint Nextel recently said it would pay for UbiquiTel and its 603,000 subscribers. Deephaven Capital Management owns 9.9 percent of the company's common stock and it contends that the proposed figure is inadequate given the price Sprint paid for other larger CDMA affiliates like Alamosa Holdings and iDEN affiliate Nextel Partners.
