Long term partnership.

Today’s businesses need to be flexible. Tying up enormous amounts of capital in a data center can seriously constrain your company’s liquidity. Our private ownership structure ensures we have rapid access to capital, as and when needed, to the benefit of our customers.

Our standard approach is to self-fund all equity capital for each data center acquisition, construction, fit-out and customer installations. Partnering with DigiPlex gives you a state-of-the-art solution with minimal capital investment and predictable OpEx costs over time.

Investment initiatives.

Our financial strength is one of the reasons why EVRY, Norway’s largest IT company, signed a 20-year deal, demonstrating its long-term commitment and trust. In connection with this project, we launched our first five-year secured bond transaction, raising NOK 500m (approximately £49.7m/ $83.2m). The transaction was used to fund the construction phase and provide long-term financing.

This was the first ever bond funding in Norway for the data center sector, and the first ever bond financing for any sector to fund the construction element of a large project.

Following the successful listing of the first bond in 2014, DigiPlex approached the market in 2015 to raise NOK 575M to fund further expansion, as demand for DigiPlex data centers in the region continued to grow. The third senior secured bond issue of NOK 655 million was completed in May 2020 to finance the construction of two new data centers in Oslo.
