Crown Castle Completes $800 Million Term Loan B

HOUSTON, Aug. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crown Castle International Corp. ("Crown Castle") (NYSE:CCI) today announced that its direct wholly owned subsidiary, Crown Castle Operating Company ("CCOC"), borrowed $800.0 million of incremental tranche B term loans ("Incremental Loans") under CCOC's existing Senior Secured Credit Agreement. The terms of the Incremental Loans are substantially the same as the terms of CCOC's outstanding tranche B term loans under its existing Senior Secured Credit Agreement and will mature on January 31, 2019. The Incremental Loans bear interest at a per annum rate equal to LIBOR plus 2.25% to 2.50%, based on CCOC's total net leverage ratio.

The proceeds of the Incremental Loans were used by CCOC to prepay a portion of the outstanding revolving credit loans under CCOC's existing $1.5 billion Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility. After giving effect to such prepayment, CCOC has approximately $229 million of revolving credit loans outstanding under its existing $1.5 billion Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility.

The Incremental Loans were arranged by Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc., Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated and RBS Securities Inc.
