In QuotedData’s morning briefing 2 August 2021:
Cordiant Digital Infrastructure (CORD) has decided not to invest in one of the European data centre platforms previously identified in its pipeline due to pricing considerations. It said, in certain instances, processes have been slowed as a result of unforeseen developments on the vendor side. The pipeline continues to evolve and pricing discipline remains paramount and accordingly, there is no certainty that any pipeline assets may be acquired. Other opportunities include, inter alia, two North American data centre platforms, a European multi-asset tower and Internet of Things platform, a European fibre and tower platform, and two other European data centre platforms.
