Cordiant Digital Infrastructure Limited

Pipeline update

 

2 August 2021

 

The Board of Cordiant Digital Infrastructure Limited (the "Company") provides an update on the deployment of the proceeds from the issuance of C Shares and the remaining proceeds from the Initial Public Offering. 

Since the completion of the C Share placing on 8 June 2021, the Company's investment manager, Cordiant Capital Inc (the "Investment Manager") has undertaken due diligence, submitted non-binding offers and advanced negotiations in respect of several investment opportunities, including assets previously identified in the Company's announcement of 17 May 2021. The opportunities include, inter alia, two North American data centre platforms, a European multi-asset tower and Internet of Things platform, a European fibre and tower platform, and three European data centre platforms.  The Investment Manager determined not to proceed with one of the European data centre platforms in consequence of pricing considerations. In certain instances, processes have been slowed as a result of unforeseen developments on the vendor side.

The pipeline continues to evolve as a result of the active origination efforts on the part of the Investment Manager. The Board and Investment Manager are focused on undertaking thorough due diligence and comprehensive negotiations in respect of any targeted asset, leveraging the broad industry and operational experience of the Cordiant team. Pricing discipline remains paramount and accordingly, there is no certainty that any of these assets may be acquired by the Company.  The Board and Investment Manager remain confident of delivering both the Company's investment strategy for the benefit of shareholders and a positive impact across societies through investment in digital infrastructure.

Further announcements will be made in due course as transactions progress.
