Two brief messages from Kevin F. Donohue, Managing Partner at Tower Genius LLC.
#1. Cell Tower and Cell Site Landlords, How Can We Help You?
#2. Landlords Are Your Urban Rooftop Cell Site Rent Values At Risk?
By: Steve Kazella, Tower Genius, LLC. Lewiston, Idaho. Everest Infrastructure Partners
(EIP) is a new company based out of Pittsburgh, PA that is aggressively and
strategically targeting cell tower landlords to purchase cell tower lease easements
and rental streams under a unique model similar to a long-term partnership
agreement. While this type of cell tower lease buyout offer can be financially
enticing and very attractive to just about anyone with a cell tower on their property,
there are still risks involved in our opinion if the deals are not crafted
properly despite anyone’s good intentions. Everest Infrastructure deals can clearly
be a great benefit to cell tower landlords who are looking to increase their
current cell tower lease revenues, while still protecting long-term cash flows.
However, these deals need to be crafted properly so that the landlord is fully
protected and so that the responsibilities of both parties are clearly spelled

Also, Everest Infrastructure partnership deals
are not the ideal scenario for every tower as they are not cookie-cutter
one-size fits all offers. They customize deals based on many factors. A
legitimate question that a cell tower property owner needs to ask is, if I
enter into an agreement with Everest, will the tower management company that
owns the tower relocate the tower to block Everest? We know that Everest Infrastructure partners carefully examine each individual cell tower location from their risk analysis
perspective as the cash investor. Cell
tower landlords also need to have a cell tower leasing and infrastructure professional
evaluate their cell tower, lease agreement and buyout offer to make sure they
are making a sound decision.
Everest Infrastructure Partners Offers vs. Other Cell Tower Lease Buyout Company Offers
What’s the difference between
offers from other cell tower lease buyout companies, and the offers that
Everest Infrastructure Partners is making property owners and what makes their offers different?
Chances are if you are reading this, you can easily compare offer letters or
terms sheets side by side from Everest and some other third party aggregator.
Yes, there are significant differences between Everest’s type of rental stream
acquisition offer, and the type of lease buyout offers other rental stream
acquisition companies offer. Normally the third-party lease aggregators just
want to buy you our lease and have a perpetual easement on your rental stream
for the lifetime of your tower. Offers
from EIP take more of the up-front risk by increasing what you are getting now
on your lease, with an opportunity to partner on the new rent after the current
lease expires. Since Everest has significant funding behind them, and they are
able to cherry-pick the deal that they are interested in acquiring as opposed
to the other lease buyout forms that have a shotgun approach. EIP has more of a
However, as we mentioned earlier,
even the best-intentioned lease purchase or partnership offer by a third party
needs to be scrutinized to make sure that the landlord is protected and that
the landlord is not leaving any on the table. Before you agree to or sign
anything, make sure that you talk to Tower Genius to make sure that you are
getting the best offer possible, that you are not leaving anything on the
table, and most importantly, that you reduce your risk and that you are
protected going forward.
Please give Tower Genius a call at 1-888-313-9750 before you would ever agree to a proposal of this nature.
Tower Genius, LLC is an independent third-party cell tower lease consulting and landlord advocacy company, and is not affiliated
with Everest. We consult with property owners to make sure that cell tower landlords are protected in their lease agreements. We are also in the business of acquiring certain kinds of cell tower lease rental streams as an ancillary part of our business, but do to the nature of our acquisition model and the difference in how EIP acquires leases, we do not see ourselves as direct competitors. If you contact Tower Genius about evaluating your Everest Buyout Offer, we will represent you and help you to get the best deal possible with Everest, and not be offering you other services.
