Towercos’ perspectives on best practices when drafting MLAs
A report from the roundtable discussion held at the TowerXchange Meetup Americas 2016
One of the roundtables at the TowerXchange Meetup Americas 2016 focused on Master Lease Agreements (MLAs) best practices and was run by Josh Koenig, VP and Associate General Counsel at SBA Communications. The MLA is the critical document defining the relationship between towerco and tenant - a good MLA can make a towerco more investible, a bad MLA can destroy value. TowerXchange reports on key findings from the session.
RANsharing and other sharing agreements
The threat of RANsharing was one of the first issues the group discussed, especially since the entire CALA region is witnessing a growing number of negotiations among carriers and requests to local regulators to approve sharing agreements.
