BroadGroup Consulting to Present “Attracting Investors: What Colocation Providers Need to Know” on International Colocation Club Webcast

Hosted by Schneider Electric, Global Community of Data Center Industry Experts, Leaders and Visionaries Come Together to Drive Colocation Business Growth in New International Colocation Club

South Africa, Johannesburg, 1 March 2018 - The colocation industry is booming with no near-term end in sight as IoT, Artificial Intelligence and cloud computing continue to drive the need for data processing at the edge. 2017 was the single biggest year for merger & acquisitions in the industry, with upwards of $20 billion in activity. Yet, the industry remains highly fragmented with more than 1000 providers today. As colocation executives are seeking investment, understanding how investors are evaluating their business is critical to attaining the right investors and financial commitment. This is the topic for the first Digital International Colocation Club (ICC) webcast “Attracting Investors” featuring Steve Wallage of BroadGroup Consulting and hosted by Schneider Electric.

Colocation providers must assess and evolve to attract the type of investor to maximize growth

Colocation data center providers are being evaluated by a wide range of investors, with varying experience and perspectives. Understanding the evaluation criteria is a critical competency for attracting the right type of investor and investment to your colocation business,” says Steve Wallage, Managing Director of BroadGroup Consulting. “After leading many due diligence projects for investors, there are many areas colocation providers can assess and evolve to ensure they secure financing and maximize their share of the available market.”
