TowerLeases Lease Negotiation Experts Announce Increased Cell Tower Lease Growth in South America

David Espinosa and the TowerLeases team announce their success in accelerating the migration to individually owned cell towers and improved 3G/4G coverage and David Espinosa have recently announced their widespread success in South America, assisting to improve private and public lease owners' results with their investments through high level consultation regarding financial metrics, tower infrastructure related considerations and the profitability of cell tower acquisition deals in South America.

The US based company has been dealing with cell tower consultation for more than 12 years, and they have found that, although many cell tower companies have emerged in recent years in countries like Brazil and Colombia, individual tower owners and lease holders still have significant difficulty in managing their contracts and saving money due to unclear business models and the lack of significant knowledge associated with cell tower infrastructure, financial issues and legal demands.

The company has analyzed the emerging South American market and found that even though tenancy ratios were at the heart of all financial metrics in the area for a long time, more recently, individual tower financial visibility has been under the spotlight, as increasing opportunities for tower acquisition deals have emerged.

“It was a thorough investigation that paid off in the end” - David Espinosa said. “It became clear that, in countries like Brazil, there has been a large shift in the cell tower market from large corporations to independent TowerCos (tower companies), and the aggressive pricing established by middle market companies are expected to lead to a more consolidated market geared toward the potential for TowerCos growth and increased subscriber growth.”

TowerLeases is one of the few US based tower lease negotiation companies that have taken up the challenge of offering recommendations and consultation to South American lease holders in order to provide better insight for both lease holders and investors, and help stabilize the market in what experts have called a dynamic and quite unpredictable period.

Brazil and Colombia were two of the countries the company was most involved in, both showing great potential in their shift to an industry predominantly dominated by TowerCos.

Some other countries have also showed good progress, including Chile, Bolivia, Argentina and Venezuela. However, due to discrepancies in government policies throughout these areas, as well as various macro-economic turbulences, it seems, at least for the time being, that most of the towers will remain carrier-owned in the near future – including some 8,000 cell towers in Chile alone.

Thus far, it seems that Colombia and Peru are the countries that show the greatest promise, and may offer investors the most profitable opportunities when it comes to the cell tower industry. Colombia seems to provide the best returns on investment, while other countries, such as Argentina, Venezuela and Ecuador, have shown much less progress, despite their large size, which suggests there may be excellent opportunities for developing 3G/4G infrastructures, but only in future years.

TowerLeases, led by David Espinosa, has already helped a great number of current lease holders and land owners in South America. However, Mr. Espinosa stated that there is certainly room for improvement both in terms of the technology used for achieving higher 3G/4G coverage in most of the countries and the financial plans in place for handling the business part of the transition to individually owned cell towers.
