13:56 EDTVZ, TAT&T VP critical of Dish auction tactics
AT&T (T) VP of Federal Regulatory Joan Marsh stated in a post to a corporate blog that FCC Auction 97 represents "hard evidence that there is significant continuing interest in licensed spectrum... It didn't matter that it was mid-band spectrum. It mattered only that it was broadband spectrum." Marsh notes that Dish (DISH) won more licenses than any other bidder though "none of that spectrum is currently supporting commercial wireless services," with her suggestion being that "auctions should be designed to ensure that licenses go to those willing to deploy networks Ė not speculators or stockpilers...The government should continue to place a high priority on allocating new licensed bands to the wireless industry." Marsh continues her analysis of Dish, claiming the double and triple-bidding activity carried out by its two designated entities "circumvented auction activity rules, masked actual demand and distorted the auction," as they were able to win significant allocations while enjoying a 25% small business discount. In response to Dish claims that all companies use DEs, Marsh replies that "in more recent auctions... bidders like AT&T, Verizon (VZ) and T-Mobile (TMUS) had no DE relationships, participated directly and paid full price for their licenses."

12:26 EDTCCICrown Castle to explore potential sale of Australian subsidiary
Crown Castle International announced that it plans to explore the potential sale of its Australian subsidiary, CCAL. "In light of recent unsolicited offers we have received for our interest in CCAL, we have determined that fully exploring the options available to us will ensure the best long-term results for our shareholders," stated Ben Moreland, Crown Castle's President and CEO. "Similar to our US business, CCAL has developed into a leading wireless infrastructure provider in the attractive Australian market with a unique portfolio of assets and platform for future growth and expansion." CCAL is the largest independent tower operator in Australia. Crown Castle owns 77.6% of CCAL and has an intercompany loan of approximately A$306M due from CCAL as of December 31. CCAL is expected to contribute approximately 4% to 5% to the midpoint of Crown Castle's previously provided full year 2015 Outlook for Adjusted EBITDA of US$2.15B and AFFO of US$1.46B. Crown Castle's full year 2015 Outlook was previously provided on January 21 and assumed an exchange rate of 0.81 US dollars to 1.0 Australian dollar. There can be no assurance that the exploration of a potential sale will result in the consummation of any specific action. Crown Castle does not intend to discuss developments with respect to the exploration of a sale unless or until its Board of Directors reviews and approves a specific action or otherwise deems further disclosure is appropriate or required.
