The financing was significantly over subscribed.
“To close on this oversubscribed, upsized financing with the strong support from our lenders, especially in light of difficult capital markets conditions, is a reflection of Vantage’s strong financial performance and growth prospects,” said Dave Renner, CFO, Vantage Data Centers.
“We continue to experience strong demand for high-end data centers, as evidenced by record leasing levels in 2015. The additional financing enables Vantage to continue to support the growth of our customers through expansion in Santa Clara, including the development of our state-of-the-art V4 facility, Quincy, and potential new markets,” said Sureel Choksi, President and CEO, Vantage Data Centers.
Twelve financial lenders participated in Vantage’s bank facility expansion. The financing was led by RBC Capital Markets as lead arranger, book runner and administrative agent. SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, and Regions Capital Markets both served as joint book runners.
