"Our customers were busy and our employees executed well. Strong organic customer activity and operational execution are the primary drivers for our increase to certain items of our full year outlook. We believe these positive trends will continue through year-end 2011 and through all of 2012. We have also seen an increase in portfolio growth opportunities. We expect some of the benefit from these opportunities will be captured in our 2011 financial results, with the majority of the benefit to be realized in 2012 and beyond. We are finding good portfolio growth opportunities domestically and internationally. With our recently completed $500 million institutional loan placement and reloaded credit facility, we are well positioned and have ample liquidity to grow our company."

Investing Activities

As of June 30, 2011, SBA owned 9,574 towers, and managed or leased approximately 4,400 actual or potential additional communication sites. During the second quarter of 2011, SBA purchased 140 towers and the rights to manage one additional communication site for an aggregate of approximately $66.3 million in cash (exclusive of any working capital adjustments). SBA also built 151 towers during the second quarter of 2011. In addition, the Company spent $9.8 million to purchase land and easements and to extend lease terms with respect to land underlying its towers. Total cash capital expenditures for the second quarter of 2011 were $111.3 million, consisting of $4.6 million of non-discretionary cash capital expenditures (tower maintenance and general corporate) and $106.7 million of discretionary cash capital expenditures (new tower builds, tower augmentations, tower acquisitions and related earn-outs, and purchasing land and easements).

Subsequent to June 30, 2011, the Company acquired 33 towers and related assets and liabilities from third party sellers for an aggregate consideration of $14.5 million in cash. The Company has agreed to purchase an additional 74 towers for an aggregate amount of $40.6 million. The Company anticipates that these acquisitions will be consummated by the end of the fourth quarter of 2011.

Financing Activities and Liquidity

SBA ended the second quarter with $3.5 billion of total debt (recorded on the Company's balance sheet at a carrying value of $3.3 billion), $0.3 billion of cash and cash equivalents, short-term restricted cash and short-term investments and $3.2 billion of Net Debt (as defined below). SBA's Net Debt and Net Secured Debt to Annualized Adjusted EBITDA Leverage Ratios were 7.3x and 3.3x, respectively. During the three months ended June 30, 2011, the Company borrowed $75.0 million and repaid $270.0 million under the Revolving Credit Facility. As of June 30, 2011, SBA had no borrowings outstanding under the Revolving Credit Facility and the total amount available under the facility was $500.0 million.

On June 30, 2011, the Company extended the maturity of its existing $500 million, five year, senior secured Revolving Credit Facility and obtained a new $500 million, seven year, senior secured Term Loan B (the "Term Loan"). The maturity of the Revolving Credit Facility was extended from February 2015 to June 2016. Amounts borrowed under the facility will continue to accrue interest at either LIBOR plus a margin that ranges from 187.5 basis points to 237.5 basis points (with no LIBOR floor) or at a Base Rate plus a margin that ranges from 87.5 basis points to 137.5 basis points (with no Base Rate floor), in each case based on the ratio of Consolidated Total Debt to Annualized Borrower EBITDA.

The Term Loan was issued at 99.75% of par value and will mature on June 30, 2018. It will bear interest at either the Base Rate plus 1.75% per annum (with a Base Rate floor of 2%) or LIBOR plus 2.75% per annum (with a LIBOR floor of 1%). The proceeds from the Term Loan were used to pay down the existing balance on the Revolving Credit Facility with the remainder to be used for general corporate purposes.

During the second quarter, SBA repurchased and retired 1,943,664 shares of its common stock for $75.0 million in cash at an average price per share of $38.59. The Company currently has $225.0 million of repurchase authorization remaining under its existing $300.0 million stock repurchase program.

Outlook

The Company is providing its third quarter 2011 Outlook and updating its Full Year 2011 Outlook for anticipated results. The Outlook provided is based on a number of assumptions that the Company believes are reasonable at the time of this press release. Information regarding potential risks that could cause the actual results to differ from these forward-looking statements is set forth below and in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Company's Full Year 2011 Outlook includes 9% organic leasing revenue growth on owned towers,  new tower builds in the U.S. and internationally of 400 to 420 towers in 2011 for the Company's ownership, the acquisition of only those tower assets under contract at the time of this press release, and no additional stock repurchases. The Company intends to spend additional capital in 2011 on acquiring revenue producing assets not yet identified or under contract, the impact of which is not reflected in the 2011 guidance.

This information is qualified in its entirety by cautionary statements and risk factor disclosures contained in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including the Company's annual report on Form 10-K filed with the Commission on February 25, 2011. The Company wishes to caution readers that certain important factors may have affected and could in the future affect the Company's actual results and could cause the Company's actual results for subsequent periods to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statement made by or on behalf of the Company. With respect to the Company's expectations regarding all of these statements, including its financial and operational guidance, such risk factors include, but are not limited to: (1) the ability and willingness of wireless service providers to maintain or increase their capital expenditures; (2) the Company's ability to secure and retain as many site leasing tenants as planned at anticipated lease rates; (3) the impact, if any, of consolidation among wireless service providers; (4) the Company's ability to secure and deliver anticipated services business at contemplated margins; (5) the Company's ability to maintain expenses and cash capital expenditures at appropriate levels for our business; (6) the Company's ability to acquire land underneath towers on terms that are accretive; (7) the Company's ability to realize economies of scale from its tower portfolio; (8) the Company's ability to comply with covenants and the terms of its credit instruments; (9) the economic climate for the wireless communications industry in general and the wireless communications infrastructure providers in particular and (10) the continued dependence on towers and outsourced site development services by the wireless carriers. With respect to the Company's plan for new builds, these factors also include zoning approvals, weather, availability of labor and supplies and other factors beyond the Company's control that could affect the Company's ability to build 400 to 420 towers in 2011.

With respect to repurchases under the Company's stock repurchase program, the amount of shares repurchased, if any, and the timing of such repurchases will depend on, among other things, the trading price of the Company's Class A common stock, which may be positively or negatively impacted by the repurchase program, market and business conditions, the availability of stock, the Company's financial performance or determinations following the date of this announcement in order to use the Company's funds for other purposes.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The press release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including (i) Site Leasing Segment Operating Profit, Site Development Segment Operating Profit and Segment Operating Profit Margin, (ii) Tower Cash Flow and Tower Cash Flow Margin, (iii) Adjusted EBITDA, Annualized Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, (iv) Net Debt, Net Secured Debt, Leverage Ratio and Secured Leverage Ratio (collectively, our "Non-GAAP Debt Measures") and (v) Equity Free Cash Flow and Equity Free Cash Flow Per Share.

We have included these non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that they provide investors additional tools in understanding our financial performance and condition. Specifically, we believe that:

(1) Segment Operating Profit is an indicator of the operating performance of our site leasing and site development segments;

(2) Tower Cash Flow is an indicator of the performance of our site leasing operations;

(3) Adjusted EBITDA, Equity Free Cash Flow and Equity Free Cash Flow Per Share are useful indicators of the financial performance of our core businesses; and

(4) our Non-GAAP Debt Measures provide investors a more complete understanding of our net debt and leverage position as they include the full principal amount of our debt which will be due at maturity.

In addition, Tower Cash Flow, Adjusted EBITDA and our Non-GAAP Debt Measures are components of the calculations used by our lenders to determine compliance with certain covenants under our senior credit agreement and senior notes. These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be an alternative to any of the financial measures provided in our results of operations or our balance sheet as determined in accordance with GAAP.
