Crown Castle bid more than $7B to acquire Lightower, Reuters says

Crown Castle International (CCI) has made an offer to acquire Lightower Fiber Networks from its majority owner, private equity firm Berkshire Partners, for more than $7B, including debt, according to Reuters, citing people familiar with the matter. Lightower, which would mark Crown Castle's biggest deal to date and help it diversify away from its traditional tower business, has also attracted interest from other telecommunications infrastructure companies, including Uniti Group (UNIT), the report stated.

Crown Castle upgraded on improving tower sentiment, A&T build out at Guggenheim
As previously reported, Guggenheim upgraded Crown Castle (CCI) to Buy from Neutral and raised its price target to $101 from $91. Analyst Jonathan Schildkraut said improving tower sentiment and expectations that AT&T's (T) build out of the FirstNet network will result in a meaningful benefit to Crown Castle's growth rates beyond 2017. Further, the analyst increasingly expects 5G will leverage small cell infrastructure, benefiting Crown Castle's long-term growth.

SunTrust views AT&T deal as highlighting 5G momentum
SunTrust analyst Greg Miller believes AT&T's (T) acquisition of Straight Path (STRP) highlights the "strong momentum" on early 5G network development plans, including fixed wireless. He believes the news is positive for infrastructure companies including Crown Castle (CCI), Zayo Group (ZAYO), Uniti Group (UNIT) and ultimately American Tower (AMT) and SBA Communications (SBAC) in later-stage 5G deployments.
