"We expect this extraordinary combination of companies with the most towers in the best markets to create significant value for our customers and shareholders," stated John P. Kelly, Crown Castle's Chief Executive Officer. "The complementary nature of our US portfolios will result in a high-quality, diversified customer base, with 76% of site rental revenues from the four largest US wireless carriers. Further, we have an experienced management team, which will now be leveraged across a larger portfolio, with proven abilities to excel in this industry. This transaction reflects our continued commitment to undertaking endeavors that we believe will maximize recurring cash flow per share, which we feel is the best way to create and increase shareholder value.
