Cologix has announced that it has entered into amended and expanded secured credit facilities totaling $255 million.
The financing enables Cologix to continue to build and acquire premier interconnection-focused data centers sought by its customers. The transaction was oversubscribed from the initial request. The credit facilities also provide for an option to flex further with a $60 million uncommitted incremental accordion facility.
“The expanded credit facilities further empower Cologix to provide industry leading interconnection-focused colocation capacity in the markets we serve,” said Cologix chief financial officer Brian Cox. “This financing augments Cologix’s robust balance sheet and cash flows to provide capital for further organic and inorganic opportunities driving our growth. We appreciate our lending institutions for their support.”
