TowerXchange’s analysis of American Tower’s International portfolio (MAY 2014)
As the leading towerco reports their annual results, TowerXchange examines the figures to summarise AMT’s international strategy
“In 2013, we drove record levels of organic growth in both our US and international segments and added over 10,000 sites to our global asset base through the acquisitions of the GTP and NII portfolios and our ongoing site construction program,” said American Tower (AMT) Chairman, President and CEO Jim Taiclet during the conference call announcing AMT’s 2013 results. Taiclet later continued: “we have purposely and methodically expanded our asset base to over 67,000 towers that deliver strong organic growth as well as the highest margins in our industry.”
Given our focus on the tower industry in Africa, LatAm and Asia, I thought TowerXchange readers might be interested if we isolated some of the key data points relating to AMT’s international strategy.
