Item 8.01 Other Events.

On September 14, 2012, SBA Communications Corporation (“SBA”) reached an agreement with T-Mobile USA (“T-Mobile”) to extend the remaining term on approximately 2,800 existing leases to an average of approximately 7 years, and granted T-Mobile rights to upgrade certain towers with radio equipment in connection with its network modernization plan. The terms of the agreement will result in SBA recognizing an increase in non-cash site rental revenue and increased annual cash escalations. SBA expects this agreement to contribute approximately $5 million in site rental revenue, and approximately $1 million in both Adjusted EBITDA and AFFO to SBA’s second half 2012 results.
