Financial due diligence

DIAL were appointed by a leading US Investment Firm, as part of a proposed debt refinance transaction, to carry out a Fast-track due diligence assignment on a Regional Datacenter Operator in South Central USA.

Expertise. Support. Processes.

Data center financial due diligence

The key objectives of the assignment was to review the primary aspects of the business plan over the term of the proposed finance and included

  • Review of sales plan for new and existing customers
  • Technical assessment of the Infrastructure at each site
  • Review of lease terms and arrangements
  • Impact of sales plan to ongoing Operational expense and Capital spend plans to support expected free cash positions
  • General advice on maintaining and increasing the asset value over the term

Highly responsive expertise

Given the fast-track nature of the assignment an initial desktop study was carried out followed by site visits, with daily updates and summary reports. Despite the fast-track and high-level nature of the assignment the DIAL team were able to provide valuable insight, helping the investor to make a better-informed decision on this deal, whilst providing valuable advice to the operator during the process.

How the client benefited

In this example we see the Investment team, taking the time to better understand underlying infrastructure and how it impacts the business plan and asset value going forward. The DIAL team are uniquely positioned to understand the multi-faceted nature of existing facilities and provide insight to the risks, but also opportunities, for the operator which could deliver better upside for the investor. Moving forward we see investors becoming more ‘hands on’ and using the DIAL team to support their investments.
How you can benefit from our expertise.

Whilst recent trends have seen a focus on large scale Data Centre projects, we also see the emergence of the regional data centre and telco market. Although many small and medium sized facilities in commercial buildings and POP sites supporting legacy services are reaching the end of their service life, the locations are often well suited to Edge computing requiring a complete refresh and updated approach. DIAL is bridging the gap between commercial and technical real estate and edge computing to create innovative technical and funding solutions.
