BOSTON -- March 15, 2013

American Tower Corporation (NYSE: AMT) (the “Company”) today announced that
American Tower Depositor Sub, LLC, a special-purpose subsidiary of the Company
completed the previously announced private offering of $1,800.0 million
aggregate principal amount of Secured Tower Revenue Securities, Series 2013-1
and Series 2013-2 (collectively, the "Securities"). The Securities are backed
by the debt of two other special-purpose subsidiaries of the Company and the
debt is secured primarily by mortgages on the subsidiaries’ interests in 5,195
communications sites. The Series 2013-1 has a principal balance of $500.0
million, an interest rate of 1.551% and an expected life of approximately five
years with a final maturity of March 2043. The Series 2013-2 has a principal
balance of $1,300.0 million, an interest rate of 3.070% and an expected life
of approximately ten years with a final maturity of March 2048.

The Company’s subsidiaries used a substantial portion of the proceeds (after
payment of underwriting commissions and other transaction expenses and funding
of certain reserve accounts) of this offering to repay all amounts outstanding
under the debt backing the $1,750.0 million Commercial Mortgage Pass-Through
Certificates, Series 2007-1, and will use the remainder of the proceeds for
general corporate purposes.
