Crown Castle Issues Statement Regarding Ted Miller's Latest Attempt to Disrupt the Company's Momentum

Crown Castle Inc.
Crown Castle Inc.

HOUSTON, April 19, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crown Castle Inc. (NYSE: CCI) (“Crown Castle” or the “Company”) today issued the following statement:

Consistent with the Boots Group’s approach throughout its campaign, Ted Miller has again pursued a litigation strategy that is attempting to interfere with Crown Castle’s critical strategic and operational initiatives. In his most recent motion, Ted Miller is seeking to prevent the Company from expanding the size of its Board, which the Board has recently done by adding Steven Moskowitz as a director at the time of Mr. Moskowitz’s appointment as Crown Castle’s President and CEO. Although the Company vigorously disputes the claims in the Boots Group’s lawsuit, Crown Castle has decided it will not include Steven Moskowitz on its slate of director nominees for the Company’s 2024 Annual Meeting of Stockholders to avoid the distraction and expense of Ted Miller’s litigation. Shareholders will continue to have the opportunity to vote on the Company’s remaining 12 highly qualified incumbent directors. All the current independent directors of the Board intend to vote to appoint Mr. Moskowitz to the Board immediately after the 2024 Annual Meeting. The Company and CEO Steven Moskowitz will continue to focus on advancing initiatives aimed at creating value for all shareholders.

Advisors

Morgan Stanley is serving as financial advisor, and Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP is serving as legal counsel, to the Company.
