A new Dutch towerco


The trend of creating towercos to unlock operational efficiencies continues with KPN and ABP joining forces in The Netherlands

Despite being one of the first tower markets in Europe in 2008 after KPN divested its assets in four tranches, M&A and tower activity in The Netherlands has been limited in the past few years. Today’s announcement from MNO KPN and pension fund ABP reshapes the country’s tower market. The MNO and pension fund have signed an agreement to combine assets to put the Netherlands back in the spotlight.

The deal

The new towerco will manage approximately 3,800 sites representing the consolidated passive infrastructure of ABP-majority owned Open Tower Company (OTC), consisting of high voltage pylons, broadcasting and macro towers and KPN’s rooftops, macro sites and third-party towers.
