Global provider of cloud- and carrier-neutral data center Digital Realty completed the acquisition of InterXion. In the transaction, 70,862,736 shares of InterXion, representing approximately 92.3% of total shares outstanding, were tendered. Since less than 95% of Interxion’s total shares outstanding were acquired in the exchange offer, non-tendering holders of InterXion shares will receive shares of Digital Realty common stock pursuant to a liquidation distribution, which is generally subject to a 15% Dutch dividend withholding tax.
Full-spectrum of data center requirements
Digital Realty Chief Executive Officer A. William Stein said,
“We are pleased to have closed our combination with InterXion. This powerful combination builds upon Digital Realty’s established foundation of serving market demand for colocation, scale and hyper-scale requirements in the Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific and leverages InterXion’s European colocation and interconnection expertise, enhancing the combined company’s capabilities to enable customers to solve for the full spectrum of data center requirements across a global platform. The combination of our two organizations establishes a global platform that we believe will significantly enhance our ability to create long-term value for customers, shareholders, and employees of both companies.”
