Emitel S.A. has acquired American Towers Corporation’s fully owned subsidiary in Poland (ATC Polska).

ATC Polska’s portfolio comprises of 65 modern lattice towers which are leased to leading MNO tenants via inflation-linked contracts with long tenors (average 14 years remaining on tenant lease agreements). The portfolio is distributed in attractive locations which complements Emitel’s existing network and has a low tenancy ratio providing available load capacity for additional lease customers.

The addition of ATC Polska increases Emitel’s total site portfolio to 667, of which over 635 will host telecom equipment. This further strengthens Emitel’s Telecom Infrastructure segment, where the Company is a leading independent developer and operator of telecom infrastructure and provides site hosting and other services to MNOs such as Orange, Polkomtel, Play and T -Mobile.

Andrzej Kozlowski, Chief Executive Officer at Emitel said: “We are delighted to announce the acquisition of ATC Polska. This portfolio is highly complementary to Emitel’s and this transaction will allow us to deepen our relationship with key MNOs and bolster our high-growth Telecoms Infrastructure segment.”

Emitel is the largest operator of digital terrestrial television (“DTT”) as well as IPTV platforms, the leading radio broadcast emissions provider and a leading provider of network neutral towers and fibre infrastructure in Poland.
