How do you put a $value on telecom infrastructure assets?
Towers + tenancies + turnover... its’s a complex formula!
TowerXchange spoke to a senior representative of the TMT team at Standard Chartered Bank, from whom many of the infrastructure sharing RFPs originate.
He told us, “the valuation derives not just from the number of towers, but tenancies, location, capacity and potential for revenue contribution. Investment banks use proprietary models to figure out these metrics, looking across the technical, financial, and strategic angles. Valuation models vary dramatically. It goes far beyond the asset-based perspective, which is just the metal and real estate, to the potential of a site to generate revenue and profit.”
TowerXchange has mirrored Standard Chartered’s methodology, asking Ramboll and Ganges Internationale, two of the world’s foremost tower design companies, for their perspective on the technical evaluation of multi-tenancy towers.
