Oakley Advisory Limited (“Oakley”)*, the independent corporate finance firm offering sector specialist advice across the TMT sector, has advised Infinity SDC (“Infinity”), on the sale of its Stockley Park Data Centre to Zenium Technology Partners (“Zenium”).

The acquisition becomes Zenium’s second UK data centre, adding to its current portfolio which comprises the Istanbul One data centre in Turkey, the Frankfurt One data centre in Germany and the London One data centre in the United Kingdom. Zenium is backed by Quantum Strategic Partners, a private investment vehicle managed by Soros Fund Management.

Following the sale, Infinity intends to focus on the development of its London portfolio in Romford and Stratford (in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park), reinforcing its position as the London Data Centre Experts. Infinity provides a full range of design, build and operate data centre services.

Chris Godsmark, Managing Partner and Anthony Yaneza, Director, worked with Infinity on the transaction.

Chris Godsmark, Joint Managing Partner, commented:

“This is another transaction that highlights Oakley’s strong position in the European data centre and hosting market, where we are a leading M&A advisor in the sector. We continue to see many consolidation opportunities in the sector, which remains fragmented despite a continuing flow of transactions.”
