Acted for Data Electronics Group Ltd on acquisition by Telecity Group Plc
PRACTICE AREA GROUP: Corporate
Matheson acted for Data Electronics Group Limited and its shareholders in respect of the acquisition of the company by Telecity Group Plc.
The acquisition, which took place for a cash consideration of STG £87.6 million, will see Data Electronics form part of Telecity’s Irish operations upon completion.
Data Electronics is a leading Irish provider of carrier-neutral data centres, with two locations in Dublin.
Telecity, meanwhile, is one of Europe’s largest providers of data centres, and is listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE: TCY).
The deal reflects the significant demand for connected data centre systems in Ireland, and marks a further demonstration of Dublin’s status as a key European technology hub.
As part of the transaction, the combined Irish operations will continue to be led by the existing Data Electronics management.
