to the Third Loan Supplement
and Amendment, among other things, (i)the outstanding principal
amount of the mortgage loan was increased by $800million (or by a
net of $190million after giving effect to the prepayment of the
2012-1C Tower Securities) and (ii)the Borrowers became jointly
and severally liable for the aggregate $4.87billion borrowed
under the mortgage loan (the Mortgage Loan) corresponding to the
2013-1C Tower Securities, 2013-2C Tower Securities, 2013-1D Tower
Securities, 2014-1C Tower Securities, 2014-2C Tower Securities,
2015-1C Tower Securities, 2016-1C Tower Securities, and the newly

In addition, the Third Loan Supplement and Amendment modified the

Securities (1)are excluded for purposes of calculating the
coverage ratios, (2)are not subject to certain covenants,
including additional prepayment consideration and interest, and
(3)will not subject to an event of default if not repaid by the
due date.

The Mortgage Loan is the sole
asset of the Trust. The aggregate principal amount of the loan
components outstanding under the Mortgage Loan is $4.87billion,
comprised of (1)the $425million loan component with the same
terms and conditions as the 2013-1C Tower Securities, (2)the

terms and conditions as the Retention

The Mortgage Loan underlying
the Tower Securities is to be repaid from the operating cash
flows from the aggregate 10,453 tower sites owned by the
Borrowers. The Mortgage Loan is secured by (1)mortgages, deeds of
trust and deeds to secure debt on a substantial portion of the
tower sites, (2)a security interest in the towers and
substantially all of the Borrowers personal property and
fixtures, (3)the Borrowers rights under tenant leases, and (4)all
of the proceeds of the foregoing. For each calendar month, SBA
Network Management, Inc., an indirect subsidiary of the Company,
is entitled to receive a management fee for its services as
manager equal to 4.5% of the Borrowers operating revenues for the
immediately preceding calendar month.

The Borrowers may prepay the
$760million loan corresponding to the 2017-1C Tower Securities
with no prepayment consideration (1)within twelve months of the
anticipated repayment date, (2)with proceeds received as a result
of any condemnation or casualty of any tower owned by the
Borrowers or (3)during an amortization period. In all other
circumstances, the Borrowers may prepay the $760million loan, in
whole or in part, upon payment of the applicable prepayment
consideration. The prepayment consideration consists of an amount
equal to the excess, if any, of (i)the present value associated
with the portion of the principal balance of the $760million loan
being prepaid, calculated in accordance with the formula set
forth in the Third Loan Supplement and Amendment, on the date of
prepayment of all future installments of principal and interest
required to be paid from the date of prepayment to and including
the first due date within twelve months of the anticipated
repayment date of the 2017-1C Tower Securities over (ii)that
portion of the principal balance prepaid on the date of such
prepayment.

To the extent that the loan
corresponding to the 2017-1C Tower Securities is not fully repaid
by the anticipated repayment date, the interest rate will
increase by the greater of (i) 5% and (ii)the amount, if any, by
which the sum of (x)the ten-year U.S. treasury rate plus (y)the
credit-based spread for such component (as set forth in the Third
Loan Supplement and Amendment) plus (z) 5%, exceeds such interest
rate. Except as set forth herein, all other material terms and
conditions of the Mortgage Loan remain
unchanged.
