“The third quarter was another solid quarter for SBA,” commented Jeffrey A. Stoops, President and Chief Executive Officer.  “Organic leasing demand was steady, consistent with both the type and amount of customer activity practiced all year.  Amendment activity in the U.S. was very strong, with our customers adding to or modifying existing macro sites to refarm 2G and 3G uses to 4G LTE or to add new spectrum to their networks.  In our international markets, customer activity was more balanced between new macro sites and additions or modifications to existing macro sites.  Our Outlook for the Fourth Quarter of 2016 assumes customer activity remains materially the same as we have practiced during the first three quarters of the year.  We executed very well in the third quarter, producing once again industry-leading operating margins.  We allocated capital in the quarter opportunistically and in our opinion very attractively, spread among portfolio growth, stock repurchases and ground purchases. We ended the quarter within our target leverage range.  Finally, we accomplished a refinancing of a material portion of our indebtedness on very favorable terms, substantially reducing our interest costs on that portion of our capital structure.  AFFO continues to increase, and our share count continues to decrease. We expect this same trend to continue in the fourth quarter. Our third quarter success in each of these areas, organic growth, operating performance, asset growth, stock repurchases and financing, positively contributes to our long term aim of producing AFFO of $10 or more per share in 2020.”
