Vantage Data Centers has finalised a $9.2 billion equity investment, driven by DigitalBridge Group and Silver Lake.

The investment reflects a $2.8 billion increase in the capital raise and follows a €1.5 billion investment by AustralianSuper in September 2023, bringing the total new investment in Vantage to approximately $11 billion over the past nine months.

The funding is aimed at supporting Vantage’s expansion across North America and EMEA, enhancing its capacity to meet the growing demands of global hyperscalers for cloud and AI services. Vantage’s portfolio has expanded to more than 25 sites across these regions, offering over 3 GW of expected capacity. This new investment will drive an estimated $30 billion in additional development.

“It’s exciting to experience such strong investor demand to fuel our unprecedented growth across North America and EMEA,” said Sureel Choksi, President and CEO of Vantage. “The confidence that DigitalBridge, Silver Lake and other investors have in Vantage and our ability to execute, as evidenced by an investment round that was significantly oversubscribed, is a testament to our team’s track record of delivering for our customers. This new funding from the world’s leading digital infrastructure and technology investors, along with numerous co-investors, is a game changer that uniquely positions Vantage to capitalize on the incredible AI and cloud opportunity in front of us.”

“DigitalBridge is excited to continue its support of Vantage, a proven infrastructure partner for the world’s top cloud and technology platforms,” added Jon Mauck, Senior Managing Director at DigitalBridge, who leads the company’s data centre investment strategy. “This investment allows Vantage to further accelerate the development of next generation infrastructure to support the continued adoption of cloud and AI technologies.”

“Our conviction in Vantage’s leadership in developing and delivering next generation capacity for the world’s most significant hyperscalers has never been greater, and we are thrilled to be joined by an elite group of investors in this important partnership,” said Greg Mondre, Co-CEO and Managing Partner, and Lee Wittlinger, Managing Director, of Silver Lake.
