In addition, WRA has over 900 sites under development agreement and a number of pending installations that will also be transferred to Blue Sky.

‘Our industry is experiencing a period of unprecedented growth in new site construction, driven by a surge in new applications and the popularity of these new products. We are extremely excited to partner with Peppertree Capital in this timely venture. We feel that their deep investment experience and direct knowledge of the cell tower business will be a huge asset to Blue Sky’s success,” said Remillard.
