American Tower Corporation Announces 2012 Annual Meeting Date

American Tower Corporation (NYSE: AMT) today announced that it intends to hold its 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders on Tuesday, June 19, 2012 at 11:00 a.m., local time, at the Colonnade Hotel, 120 Huntington Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts 02116.

American Tower, which began operating as a real estate investment trust as of the first of the year, advises that pursuant to Rule 14a-8 promulgated under the Exchange Act, in order to be included in the proxy statement and form of proxy relating to its 2012 Annual Meeting, American Tower must receive any proposals of stockholders intended to be presented at the meeting no later than close of business on March 13, 2012, to provide a reasonable time before American Tower intends to print and send its proxy materials. In all instances, proposals must comply with the other requirements of Rule 14a-8.

Further, under American Tower’s advance notice provisions in its Amended and Restated By-Laws, if a stockholder wants to submit a proposal for the 2012 Annual Meeting for presentation at the meeting pursuant to Delaware corporate law (as opposed to inclusion in the proxy statement under Rule 14a-8), or intends to nominate a person as a candidate for election to the Board directly, the stockholder can submit the proposal or nomination prior to the close of business on February 18, 2012, which is 90 days prior to the anniversary of the annual meeting of stockholders held in 2011. In addition, all such proposals must comply with the other requirements of American Tower’s Amended and Restated By-Laws.

If you wish to present a proposal before the 2012 Annual Meeting, but do not wish to have the proposal considered for inclusion in the proxy statement and proxy card, you must also give written notice to: American Tower Corporation, 116 Huntington Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts 02116, Attention: Secretary. If you fail to deliver that notice so that the Secretary receives it no later than close of business on March 13, 2012, then proxies designated by American Tower’s board of directors will have discretionary authority to vote on any such proposal.
