CIT Group Inc. announced that CIT Communications & Technology Finance provided a $20 million delayed-draw term loan (DDTL) to CTI Towers, a wireless tower company.

CTI Towers owns 208 towers and manages the Comcast Cable portfolio of 435 towers. The term loan will be used to grow the company's portfolio via acquisitions, construction of new wireless towers and other wireless infrastructures as well as for working capital.

"We've been watching CTI Tower's performance since inception and are confident about their continued growth potential," said Roger Fong, managing director, CIT Communications & Technology Finance.  "With our experience in serving leading companies in the wireless infrastructure sector, we look forward to supporting this extraordinary team."

CTI Towers Chief Executive Officer Tony Peduto said, "We are extremely pleased with the terms of the debt arrangement, and this now positions us well for future growth as the wireless industry continues to grow. 5G, new spectrum deployments and the continued use of wireless devices for data and video will continue to burden the existing carrier networks. As the carriers look to add capacity everywhere, and bring better coverage to rural areas, towers will facilitate those deployments for the best coverage at the lowest cost.

"CIT has numerous investments in the wireless infrastructure space, and we are pleased to partner with such an experienced group," Peduto added.
