American Tower Corporation (NYSE: AMT) today announced the pricing of its registered public offering of 8,350,000 shares of common stock at $256.00 per share. The underwriters of the offering have an option to purchase up to an additional 835,000 shares of common stock to cover over-allotments, if any.
