This quarter’s big headline is Cellnex’ exit from the Irish market. The recently announced sale of 100% of its business in Ireland to Phoenix Tower International (PTI) for EUR 971mn, an equivalent to a multiple of approximately 24x EBITDAaL, comes as no surprise. In order to improve its credit rating and reduce its leverage, the towerco has started to sell assets.
