HOUSTON, June 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crown Castle International Corp. (NYSE: CCI) ("Crown Castle") announced today that it has priced its previously announced public offering of 2.500% Senior Notes due 2031 in aggregate principal amount of $750 million. The Senior Notes due 2031 will have an interest rate of 2.500% per annum and will be issued at a price equal to 99.743% of their face value to yield 2.529%.

The net proceeds from the offering are expected to be approximately $739 million, after deducting the underwriting discount and other estimated offering expenses payable by Crown Castle.
