Aligned Increases Its Senior Secured Credit to $1.25B
Data center provider Aligned recently increased its senior secured credit facility, the first-ever U.S. data center sustainability-linked financing, by $250 million to $1.25 billion. TD Securities LLC, Goldman Sachs Bank USA, Deutsche Bank AG, New York Branch, Wells Fargo Securities LLC, Citizens Bank N.A. and Nomura Securities International Inc. acted as joint bookrunners and joint lead arrangers for the facility, which is one of the largest private debt raises in data center history.
“Aligned’s credit facility upsizing will provide increased financial capacity and flexibility to support the expansion of our data center portfolio in step with rising demand and further development of our core sustainability initiatives,” says Anubhav Raj, Aligned CFO. “Our company’s position is that an investment in digital infrastructure requires an investment in sustainability, which is essential to positive, lasting impact on our environment as well as long-term value creation.”
Headquartered in Dallas, Aligned met and successfully exceeded all the requirements of the $1 billion sustainability-linked credit facility issued in September 2020.
