Dentons advises KKR and GIP on $15bn acquisition of CyrusOne

Dentons and K&E have advised KKR and Global Infrastructure Partners on the closing and financing of the US$15 billion acquisition of CyrusOne

-

Dentons, as part of a legal team led by Kirkland & Ellis, represented private equity firm KKR and fund manager Global Infrastructure Partners, in the acquisition of the data centre operator CyrusOne, Inc. This sophisticated transaction valued at approximately US$15 billion, including the assumption of debt, was closed by the end of last week.

CyrusOne is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that designs, builds and operates data centres. The company has 50 data centres across North America, South America and Europe, which serve more than 1,000 customers.

With a transaction value of $15 billion, and involving assets on 4 continents it is probably one of the largest and most complex transactions ever done. The multi-competency team advised the client on real estate, employment, corporate and energy law in Europe, Latin America and Singapore.

Partner Perry Zizzi and Evan Z. Lazar, co-chair of Dentons Global Real Estate Group, led and coordinated the cross-border project team of more than 150 Dentons lawyers pulled together across 16 countries on 4 continents.

In Spain, Dentons Real Estate and Finance teams were involved, with counsel Itxaso López and Luis Belart leading the respective teams together with associates Manuel de Cueto and Javier Andueza.
