    [EN] Telecity, Interxion agree all-share merger


    The European data centre operators Interxion and Telecity have agreed an all-share merger. The deal will take the form of a Telecity bid for Interxion, with the new company to remain listed in London. Interxion shareholders would receive 2.3386 new TelecityGroup shares for each Interxion share held, giving them 45 percent of the combined group. Interxion CEO David Ruberg, who led negotiations on the deal, will remain CEO for at least the first year, and Telecity's executive chairman John Huges will be chairman of the new company.

    In addition to an enhanced footprint of data centres, the companies expect an extra GBP 40 million in EBITDA per year from cost and revenues synergies as well as GBP 300 million in savings on capital expenditure. The deal is expected to add to earnings from the second year, and the companies plan a share buyback after completing the merger.

    The deal remains subject to a definitive agreement, due diligence and approval by both companies' boards. Telecity has agreed to not consider other proposals until 04 March. Pending shareholder and regulatory approval, the merger is expected to close in the second half of this year.

    Telecity, Interxion to Get Hitched
    February 11th, 2015 by Rob Powell

    There has been a big consolidation development in the European internet infrastructure markets today. TelecityGroup and Interxion, two of the continent’s largest and most active colocation providers, have announced plans to merge.

    Telecity operates more than three dozen data centers across 9 European markets to the tune of about €470M and €221M in annual revenues and EBITDA in 2014. Interxion operates some 39 data centers across 11 countries and will finish 2014 with annual revenues and EBITDA of €340.6M and €146M, respectively. The two expect some £40M in annual opex synergies plus a similar amount on the capex side, which combined would represent £600M in net present value.

    The marriage will be an all share merger, with Telecity shareholders emerging with 55% of the combined company, and Interxion shareholders holding the other 45%. Interxion’s David Ruberg will take the helm as CEO, while TelecityGroup’s John Hughes and Eric Hageman will be Chairman and CFO. The combined company will be listed in London, with an American ADR in the works.

    The deal would position the combined company as a larger counterweight to its global competitor, Equinix. Other pan-European competition is rather smaller, which makes one wonder about how European regulators will look at this, both in the EU and in the countries where the two overlap the most – the UK, Netherlands, and Germany.

    "Basing the research on third quarter 2014 figures, Synergy said that the merged Telecity/Interxion powerhouse would have a 15 percent share of the EMEA retail colocation market, compared to Equinix’s 9 percent."



    The data points towards the two data centre providers and the resulting company becoming the market leader in the UK and the Netherlands, the number two ranked retail colo provider in Spain and Switzerland, and the number three ranked operator in Germany and France.

    After e-shelter acquisition, NTT becomes largest data center provider in Germany and third-largest in all of Europe




    Balance of power in the European data center market has transformed completely in a matter of a few weeks as a result of two big acquisitions – one announced in the first half of February and the other just this week.

    The TelecityGroup and Interxion merger announced February 11 created an instant number-two gorilla in the market (after Equinix), and NTT Communications‘ acquisition of the largest German data center provider e-shelter announced Monday created a formidable number-three player.

    The e-shelter acquisition almost quadruples NTT’s presence in the region, putting the Japan-based telecommunications and IT services company in a much stronger position to compete for multinational-client deals with Equinix and the giant that resulted from the fusion of TelecityGroup and Interxion. Also, following the deal, two-thirds of NTT’s data center space is now outside of Japan.

    Can’t Build Fast Enough

    The main reason NTT agreed to dish out €742 million for a nearly 90-percent stake in e-shelter and its 775,000 square feet of data center space is that it cannot build data center space in Europe fast enough to satisfy the demand, Chris Davis, NTT’s senior director of marketing for the Americas region, said. “We’re building data centers as quickly as we can, but we needed the acquisition to quicken the pace,” he said.

    German real estate developer Investa Holdings will retain a minority stake in e-shelter. E-shelter founder and CEO Rupprecht Rittweger owns a controlling interest in Investa. The developer held a 51-percent stake in e-shelter. The remaining shares were owned by the Boston-based private equity firm ABRY Partners. More than half of e-shelter’s new board of directors will be appointed by NTT.

    Its customers want data center space in Europe, and e-shelter provided an opportunity to expand presence in another one of the region’s major business centers. NTT already has huge presence in London, with nine existing data centers there and one more under construction. Elsewhere in Europe, NTT has one data center each in Madrid, Paris, and Frankfurt. With the most recent deal, however, the company is going from having one data center in Frankfurt to being the largest provider in the
    German data center market.

    The bulk of e-shelter’s inventory is on its five-building Frankfurt 1 campus, which has its own 120-megawatt substation. The company has two more sites in Frankfurt, two in Munich, and one each in Hamburg and Berlin. E-shelter also has data centers in Zurich and Vienna.

    A Steady Diet of Acquisitions

    Expanding its global data center inventory through acquisition has been a big part of NTT’s strategy in recent years. Its big famous deal was the $3.2 billion takeover of South African IT outsourcing giant Dimension Data in 2010, but that deal was about much more than just data centers. NTT has made numerous data center-focused acquisitions following the 2010 blockbuster.

    NTT owes its massive London footprint primarily to its acquisition of a controlling stake in a company called Gyron in 2012. It has been growing its portfolio in London since the Gyron deal, the most recent example being the upcoming launch of a large data center near the London Heathrow Airport.

    Also in 2012, NTT bought a 74-percent stake in Indian service provider Netmagic Solutions, instantly gaining seven facilities across the country’s key markets of Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi, and Bangalore. The following year, NTT acquired Thailand’s Digital Port Asia, gaining a 100,000-square-foot data center in the Bangkok suburbs.

    Last year, the Tokyo-based giant paid $350 million for 80 percent of RagingWire, the U.S. data center provider with large campuses in Sacramento, California, and Ashburn, Virginia.

    A One-Stop-Shop Strategy

    While it provides managed hosting, private, and public cloud services, the bulk of the company’s revenue comes from colocation, Davis said. Leveraging its global network, the company differentiates through vertical integration, providing a full package of services at global scale, unlike Equinix, which provides data center space and network access but chooses not to provide services higher up the stack on its own, relying instead on partners that use its facilities.

    It places a lot of focus on multinational players, trying as much as possible to give them a consistent data center user experience everywhere around the world. The company has a dedicated team that facilitates international data center topology expansion for customers.

    And a lot of its customers want to be in Europe – demand it is now in a much better position to satisfy.
