Equinix Announces Acquisition Telecity Group

M&A Deals

Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of TelecityGroup plc in a transaction valued at approximately $3.8 billion (£2.6 billion). The addition of TelecityGroup’s 40+ data centers more than doubles Equinix’s capacity in Europe, fortifying its position as the largest retail colocation provider in the region. The acquisition expands the company’s interconnection platform in key European markets while also adding critical network and cloud density to better serve enterprise customers who see interconnection as a core IT design principle and are increasingly moving to highly interconnected, global data centers for accelerated business performance and innovation.

In order to meet changing business needs, global enterprises continue to outsource IT, but increasingly require connectivity to service providers and business partners in multiple markets – a key benefit of Equinix’s global interconnection platform. Today, 54 percent of Equinix’s revenue comes from customers deployed globally across all three of its regions (Americas, APAC and EMEA), and over 83 percent of revenue is from customers deployed across multiple metros, a reflection of the company’s differentiated scale and global reach. With new data centers and increased interconnection in Europe, Equinix builds on its global market leadership, and creates new opportunities to grow business ecosystems around the world.
