IHS Holding Limited (“IHS Towers”), one of the largest independent owners, operators and developers of shared telecommunications infrastructure in the world by tower count, has completed the acquisition of Skysites Holdings S.A. (“Skysites”), the specialist provider of small cells and urban telecommunications infrastructure in Brazil.

Skysites’ operations, which comprise approximately 1,000 sites, along with exclusive access to tens of thousands of premium real estate locations in urban settings, will be fully integrated into IHS Towers’ Brazilian operations over the coming months.

This acquisition will enhance IHS Towers’ customer offering and ensure it is well-positioned to support the upcoming roll-out of 5G across Brazil.

“I am delighted to announce our acquisition of Skysites in Brazil, an acquisition which further reflects our strategic growth ambition in global emerging markets. Brazil represents a key market for us with its exceptional growth potential and, through this transaction, we are significantly increasing our market presence following our entry into the region last year with the acquisition of Cell Site Solutions.”

We are proud to have built our extensive and unique portfolio of tens of thousands of premium real estate locations in highly dense urban regions in preparation for the upcoming roll-out of 5G.
