Cellnex Telecom is a Spanish wireless telecommunications infrastructure and services company with up to 53,000 sites throughout Europe. Its activity is divided into four main areas: services for telecommunications infrastructures; audiovisual broadcasting networks; security and emergency network services; and solutions[buzzword] for the intelligent management of urban infrastructures and services (smart cities and Internet of things).

Franco Bernabè is the president of Cellnex Telecom after assuming the presidency of the company on July 25, 2019. Tobías Martínez, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and head of the company since November 2014, temporarily assumed the presidency of the company in February 2018 after the resignation of Francisco Reynés, who left office after being appointed CEO of Gas Natural Fenosa.

The company's legal headquarters have been located at the offices on Calle Juan Esplandiú in Madrid since October 2017 due to the 2017–2018 Spanish constitutional crisis. However, the majority of their employees remain in Barcelona and the board of directors has not ruled out returning the legal headquarters to Barcelona.[2]

Cellnex Telecom had revenues of 901 million euros in 2018 and an EBITDA of 591 million. At the end of 2018, there were 1437 employees.

Cellnex Telecom is listed on the market of the Bolsa de Madrid and is part of the IBEX35. It is also part of the sustainability indices FTSE4GOOD, CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) and Standard Ethics.[3]


In 2000, Acesa Telecom (later Abertis Telecom) acquired 52% of Tradia and merged into Abertis Telecom (now Cellnex Telecom). Three years later, after Auna was spun-off, Retevisión's audiovisual business became part of Abertis Telecom. In 2005, the deployment of Digital Terrestrial Television began in Spain, with a network that reached 80% population coverage carrying out the first tests in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Zaragoza and Gijón. In 2006, the company was awarded the contract by which it became the operator of DTT signals for Spanish broadcasters with national coverage. In 2010, the “Analogue Blackout”[4] occurred in Spain, after the complete digitization of Abertis Telecom network of centers. Between 2012 and 2013, the company acquired more than 2,500 telecommunication towers from Telefónica and Yoigo, and laid the foundations for its future position as a neutral operator. In 2014, it acquired TowerCo, an Italian telecommunications operator, which manages the mobile phone towers located in the entire motorway network of Italy, thus initiating the process of internationalization. That same year it deployed the first Internet of Things (IoT) network in Spain with Sigfox technology.


Cellnex Telecom is the name which the company Abertis Telecom was renamed to prepare for its IPO.[5] The company, a subsidiary of the Abertis company, officially changed its name on April 1, 2015, after being approved at the shareholders' meeting that took place on March 23, 2015.[6] On April 24, it was made public that the company would debut on the stock market on May 7 of the same year, at a price that would range between 12 and 14 euros per share, estimating a market capitalization between 2.8 and 3.2 billion euros.[7]

With the IPO of Cellnex Telecom, Abertis fulfilled one of the main objectives of the Strategic Plan 2015–2017, with which it intended to value its telecommunications business and obtain resources to invest in growth and international expansion of its highway division.[8] The telecommunications subsidiary of Abertis marked its first crossing at 15.5 euros at the ringing of the bell that took place at 11 a.m. on May 6, 2015 on the Madrid Stock Exchange.[9] The company's shares rose more than 10% in its first session, to 15.41 euros. Subsequently, its price fell slightly from those 15.5 euros. Cellnex marked an intraday minimum of 15 euros and a maximum of 15,695 euros.

The IBEX 35 Technical Advisory Committee, after the first ordinary review of the committee on Thursday, June 9, 2016, announced the departure of Sacyr and OHL from the index and its replacement by Cellnex Telecom and Viscofan.
