Bharti Airtel to Lease Back the Towers from Eaton Under 10 Year Pact

Bharti Airtel will sell more than 3,500 of its mobile towers in six African countries to telecommunications tower firm, Eaton Towers in a bid to reduce costs. Bharti Airtel will lease back the towers from Eaton under a 10-year pact. But they did not disclose financial details of the deal. The agreements are subject to statutory and regulatory approvals in the respective African countries. The latest pact with Eaton will enable Bhari Airtel focus on its core business and customers, help it to deleverage through debt reduction, and will significantly reduce its on-going capital expenditure on passive infrastructure.
