Gilbert + Tobin is pleased to have advised Deutsche Bank AG, New York Branch and Sydney Branch on its joint arranging and underwriting of a $852 million senior debt facility for the AirTrunk Group, which is the largest data centre-specific financing undertaken in Australia to date. The financing will allow the AirTrunk Group to build out significant additional capacity for its customers.
The deal was driven by Gilbert + Tobin’s tier 1 Banking practice, but leveraged the firm’s technology DNA. Our long-term specialised focus on technology and digital and our wealth of experience enable us to maximise the opportunities of innovation and digital transformation.
