Zayo Acquires Two Southern California Data Centers
Purchase further strengthens Zayo’s expansive fiber and colocation
portfolio on the West Coast
BOULDER, Colo. – Zayo
Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) completed the $12 million
acquisition of KIO Networks’ San Diego data centers. The two data
centers, located at 12270 World Trade Drive and 9606 Aero Drive, total
more than 100,000 square feet of space and 2 megawatts (MW) of critical,
IT power, with additional power available. The acquisition builds on
Zayo’s continued growth on the West Coast, which includes extensive
network assets from Electric Lightwave and recently announced data
centers in Santa Clara and Los Angeles.
Zayo has experienced accelerated demand for data center and
interconnection services in San Diego, fueled by customers in IT,
healthcare and professional services. The acquisition of Kio’s data
centers not only provides crucial capacity to meet this demand, but also
an embedded revenue base that supports the financial profile of the
deal. Zayo’s pre-synergy acquisition multiple is 9.6x LQA EBITDA.
The San Diego facilities will provide extensive interconnection and
access to Zayo’s fiber backbone in California, which now encompasses
more than 8,000 route miles. Zayo’s high-count fiber also connects to
multiple landing stations providing subsea cable access up the
California coast and to the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.
“California is an important hub of the global economy, and this
acquisition further strengthens Zayo’s position as a leading
infrastructure provider,” said T.J. Karklins, senior vice president of
Zayo’s zColo business segment. “We now have zColo datacenters in all of
California’s leading metros, creating a strong chain up the West Coast
which extends to Seattle. Customers increasingly require solutions that
require network connectivity, colocation and cloud infrastructure. Zayo
offers all three at scale.”
