ING Announces Close Of £450m Infrastructure Loan With Ark Data Centres
Amsterdam based financial institution firm ING has announced that it has closed a £450m syndicated infrastructure loan with Ark Data Centres.
The company revealed that for the new facility ING acted as Bookrunner, Mandated Lead Arranger, Sole Underwriter and Hedge Co-Ordinator.
The £450m financing arranged by ING was to partially fund CAPEX related to Ark’s continued expansion as well as refinance the existing £300m data centre facility.
ING revealed that the company expanded Ark’s lending syndicate from 5 to 11 banks.
Existing lenders Lloyds, NIBC, HSBC and AIB all continued their relationship with Ark, whilst Crédit Agricole, Investec, HCOB, Sabadell, KommunalKrediet and Siemens Bank joined the syndicate as new lenders. Lloyds, HSBC, Crédit Agricole, Investec and HCOB acted alongside ING as Mandated Lead Arrangers.
Ark Data Centres operates data centre campuses with facilities in Corsham, Farmborough, England and a third site currently under construction in London.
“With its diversified client base spanning government bodies, cloud service providers, financial institutions and other notable customers, Ark continues to consolidate its position as a leading data centre operator with an exciting growth story,” said Sicco Boomsma, director at ING.
“As a bank with a strong data centre track record, ING is proud to partner with Ark as it aims to more than double its existing data centre capacity in the medium term.
“It was an honour to help the company expand its banking group with an appropriate infrastructure debt structure.
“The upsizing of Ark’s banking syndicate not only bears testament to Ark’s credit strength, but also to growing appetite for good quality data centre assets as regional investors have begun to appreciate the mission-critical nature of data centre assets”.
This year ING has been involved with multiple data centre transactions with the likes of EdgeConnex, Equinix, Green Data Centres and NLDC/TDCG, and has done over 100 data centre financing structures since starting the coverage of this exciting asset class.
