Sale Leaseback / Lease Leaseback
Uniti has taken a model that has proven successful in specific sectors, such as wireless towers, and applied it to the entire communications distribution infrastructure. In a sale-leaseback arrangement, we acquire a partner's mission-critical communications infrastructure, then lease it back to the partner who continues to run operations, maintain the network and meet all regulatory obligations. This provides liquidity and optimal flexibility to the network operator to invest in network enhancements and expansion.
Capital Investment Financing
Network operators invest billions every year in building or upgrading networks. Uniti can offer a cost-efficient method of raising capital for strategic growth initiatives — for example, greenfield fiber-optic installations to improve network speed and capacity.
Mergers & Acquisitions
Uniti can facilitate M&A transactions as a capital partner, acquiring the assets of the seller, for example, and leasing them back to the buyer. Uniti also has the flexibility to buy and operate entire companies through a Taxable REIT Subsidiary (TRS).
