AirTrunk step up APAC expansion after Macquarie backed buy

Hyperscale data centre provider Airtrunk is set to ramp up its expansion across the Asia Pacific region after Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA) closed an acquisition deal for an 88 per cent stake in the company.

The investment, which was undertaken by a consortium led by Macquarie Asia Infrastructure Fund 2 (MAIF2), a MIRA-managed infrastructure fund, effectively values Airtrunk at more than $3 billion.
