08:10 EDTCCICorvex says Crown Castle has 'exceptional growth opportunities' ahead
Corvex said, "We are optimistic that many of you share our view that Crown Castle (CCI) is a great business with exceptional growth opportunities in the years ahead. However, we also believe many of you share our frustration over the company's stock price underperformance relative to peers and the market over the last eighteen months, and the company's persistent market discount relative to its peers and its own intrinsic value. We believe Crown Castle shares some of these same frustrations, and we commend management for soliciting input from its shareholders on this issue as well as the company's activities generally. We recently met with management at Crown Castle's headquarters in Houston and have had several follow-up conversations, continuing the productive dialogue we have had with the company for several years. Given the recent published speculation of a potential Verizon (VZ) towers transaction, we felt compelled to reach out publicly to fellow shareholders at this time as well, to further stimulate the capital allocation discussion which has intensified among investors and analysts in recent weeks. We firmly believe Crown Castle's valuation can be improved dramatically and sustainably through a change in the company's capital allocation plan, reducing Crown Castle's cost of capital and enhancing its ability to continue to grow and compound shareholder value over the long term. Based on our analysis, we see a near-term opportunity for Crown Castle to drive a 27% re-rating in its equity, and the potential for over 60% upside in 15 months. Once the company's equity currency has strengthened, Crown Castle can aggressively pursue a Verizon towers transaction, creating even greater long-term value for shareholders. However, if the company does not have the right cost of capital, it should not be pursuing acquisitions or issuing equity, whether for Verizon's towers or any other transaction. We make our case to shareholders and the company below, as well as in the attached presentation. Our analysis suggests a change in capital allocation could result in Crown Castle's stock trading for in excess of $100.00 per share within a short time frame, and compounding further from there. Based on recent public commentary by management, we think Crown Castle may be considering the same actions we suggest."
08:07 EDTCCICorvex sends letter to Crown Castle regarding capital allocation
Corvex Management released a letter to Crown Castle shareholders outlining a proposal to improve the company's capital allocation strategy to strengthen Crown Castle's valuation, reduce its cost of capital, and enhance the company's ability to continue to grow and compound shareholder value. The company said, "Given the increased public debate around Crown Castle's capital allocation policy as well as the potential for a Verizon towers transaction in the near future, we feel compelled to share our views publicly. We believe Crown Castle's valuation can be improved dramatically and sustainably by changing its capital allocation plan, expanding the company's investor base and closing its discount to peers and intrinsic value. We commend management for soliciting input from us and our fellow shareholders regularly, and we look forward to working together to create value for all Crown Castle shareholders."
