Led by Frankfurt-based partners Alexander Stefan Rieger and Jörg Herwig as well as by senior associate Johannes Groß, global law firm Hogan Lovells has advised DTCP (Digital Transformation Capital Partners) on a major investment in the German colocation data center operator maincubes.
DTCP is acquiring its stake in maincubes from existing majority shareholder Art-Invest Real Estate, with both investors now sharing joint control. Under the new investor structure, maincubes will advance its sustainable growth strategy with the goal to become a leading European data center operator. The two majority shareholders intend to invest more than a billion euros in maincubes’ growth over the coming years. The transaction is already completed.
DTCP is focused on driving digital transformation through investments in European infrastructure – particularly data centers, fiber networks, and mobile towers. Hogan Lovells assisted DTCP with all due diligence aspects and certain transactional aspects of its investment. Additional legal advice to DTCP was provided by Wendelstein LLP and YPOG.
Alexander Stefan Rieger commented:
“Advising DTCP on this landmark transaction involving operational data centers as well as numerous data centers in planning and under development reflects our ability to deliver throughout the lifecycle of infrastructure assets and underlines our strategy to serve as the go to firm for complex (digital) infrastructure investments.”
