(Reuters) -Data center operator Switch Inc said on Wednesday it would be taken private by digital infrastructure firm DigitalBridge Group Inc for $8.38 billion in cash.
The offer values each share of Switch at $34.25, an almost 15% premium to the company’s closing price on May 9 when talks of the deal were first reported.
A shift to hybrid working models and increasing usage of enterprise software during the pandemic has given a fillip to data center businesses, propping up investor interest in the sector.
The deal is expected to close in the second half of this year.
