Private Equity Firm KKR-Led Consortium with Singtel Invests $1.3 Billion in Digital Infrastructure Data Centre Provider ST Telemedia Global Data Centres, Will Invest Additional $920 Million if Warrants are Fully Exercised Bringing Total Investment to $2.22 Billion, ST Telemedia Remains as Majority Shareholder of ST Telemedia Global Data Centres

19th June 2024 | Hong Kong

Private Equity firm KKR-led consortium with Singtel has announced to invest $1.3 billion in digital infrastructure data centre provider ST Telemedia Global Data Centres, and will invest additional $920 million if warrants are fully exercised (bringing total investment to $2.22 billion).  With the $1.3 billion investment, ST Telemedia remains as majority shareholder of ST Telemedia Global Data Centres.  Announcement (18/6/24): “ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (‘STT GDC’ or the ‘Company’), a leading data centre colocation services provider, KKR, a leading global investment firm, and Singtel, Asia’s leading communications technology group, today jointly announced the signing of definitive agreements under which a KKR-led consortium of KKR (on behalf of funds managed by it) and Singtel (the ‘Consortium’) will invest S$1.75 billion (~US$1.3 billion) in STT GDC. This transaction marks the largest digital infrastructure investment in Southeast Asia to date in 2024.  The transaction comprises an initial S$1.75 billion (~US$1.3 billion) investment by the Consortium via Redeemable Preference Shares (RPS), with detachable warrants. Upon exercise of the warrants in full, the Consortium will invest an additional S$1.24 billion (~US$920 million).  The Consortium was selected following an independent competitive process by STT and STT GDC, which considered, among other things, the Consortium’s collective expertise and track record, financial strength, and proposed business strategy. The proceeds of the investment will be used to further advance STT GDC’s position in the markets it operates in, and to support its continuing international expansion and growth plans through organic and inorganic strategies. Following the transaction, ST Telemedia continues to be the majority shareholder of STT GDC.  Headquartered in Singapore, STT GDC is one of the world’s fastest-growing data centre providers with more than 95 data centres across 11 geographies and points of presence in over 20 major business markets. It provides critical services including high-quality colocation, connectivity, and round-the-clock support services. Today, its data centre portfolio has a total combined capacity of more than 1.7GW of IT load … … KKR is making this investment from its Asia Pacific Infrastructure Investors II Fund. This follows KKR’s announcement at the Indo-Pacific Partnership for Prosperity to mobilize infrastructure in the Indo-Pacific region, and marks KKR’s latest digital infrastructure investment in Southeast Asia and globally. Past investments in Southeast Asian digital infrastructure have included: Nxera, a Singapore-headquartered data centre platform serving Asia Pacific; Pinnacle Towers, a digital infrastructure platform in Asia with a strong focus on the Philippines; and OMS Group, a leading neutral subsea telecommunications cable services provider.  Singtel is a leading provider of connectivity, digital services and digital infrastructure, with data centres a critical part of the business. In September 2023, KKR acquired a 20% stake in Nxera, Singtel’s regional data centre business.  The closing of the transaction is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions precedent including regulatory approvals.”
