SBA Communications Corporation Reports First Quarter 2019 Results;

Updates Full Year 2019 Outlook

Boca Raton, Florida, April 29, 2019 (BUSINESS NEWSWIRE) — SBA Communications Corporation (Nasdaq: SBAC) (“SBA” or the “Company”) today reported results for the quarter ended March 31, 2019.

Highlights of the first quarter include:



Strong leasing and services results



Net income of $26.0 million or $0.23 per share



AFFO per share growth of 14.6% over the year earlier period on a constant currency basis



Increased 2019 Outlook for Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA and AFFO

“We had a great start to 2019,” commented Jeffrey A. Stoops, President and CEO. “Our customers rolled into the new year with the continued strong levels of activity we saw in the second half of 2018, and that level of activity continues. In the U.S., both our leasing and our services results in the first quarter were ahead of expectations, contributing to the increase in our full year Outlook. Internationally, leasing activity remains strong as well, with changes in the International Outlook driven entirely by foreign currency movements. Against this favorable demand environment, we executed very well and produced material growth in AFFO per share. We believe 2019 is shaping up to be another strong year for SBA.”
