March 23, 2020
The acquisition substantially increases Digital Reality’s capabilities in Europe.

Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR) says it has completed its acquisition of fellow provider of cloud- and carrier-neutral data center, colocation, and interconnection solutions InterXion. 

As reported by Lightwave's Stephen Hardy:

"When the deal was first announced last October, Digital Reality said its offer set Interxion’s enterprise value at $8.4 billion, including assumed net debt. The acquisition increases Digital Reality’s capabilities in Europe and elsewhere. InterXion will continue to operate under the brand “InterXion, a Digital Reality Company,” with headquarters in Amsterdam." 

“We are pleased to have closed our combination with InterXion,” commented Digital Realty CEO A. William Stein. “This powerful combination builds upon Digital Realty’s established foundation of serving market demand for colocation, scale, and hyperscale requirements in the Americas, EMEA, and Asia Pacific and leverages InterXion’s European colocation and interconnection expertise, enhancing the combined company’s capabilities to enable customers to solve for the full spectrum of data center requirements across a global platform."

The transaction closed March 12 upon the expiration of the related exchange offer, in which 70,862,736 shares of InterXion, representing approximately 92.3% of total shares outstanding, were tendered.

 "The combination of our two organizations establishes a global platform that we believe will significantly enhance our ability to create long-term value for customers, shareholders and employees of both companies,” concluded Digital Realty's Stein.
