Amsterdam, 20 December 2023

Photon Capital announces the acquisition of the KPN datacenter in Haarlem by its portfolio company Penta Infra, a fast-growing provider of reliable, sustainable, and highly connected edge and core datacenters in Europe. The facility was previously owned by KPN for their hosting and datacenter services and is currently limited in its use.

Penta Infra currently operates a portfolio of 11 datacenters in Germany, France, Denmark and The Netherlands. The acquisition of the carrier and cloud neutral KPN datacenter establishes Penta Infra’s presence in the metropolitan region Amsterdam and will expand its footprint in the Dutch market, which is part of Penta Infra’s long term strategy to expand its pan-European portfolio of edge and core datacenters. KPN will remain a tenant in the location so that they can ensure continuity for their network division while Penta Infra redevelops the other rooms into state-of-the-art IT rooms for colocation customers.

Igor Josephus Jitta, Partner at Photon Capital: “Photon Capital is proud to witness another milestone in our portfolio company, Penta Infra. The acquisition of this new datacenter fits well with the long term strategy of the company and complements their existing portfolio. We will continue to look for add-on acquisitions in the European market, like this one, to accelerate the growth of Penta Infra.”

Alex Bakker, Chief Executive Officer at Penta Infra added: “We are thrilled to announce the latest addition to the Penta Infra family with the acquisition of our new state-of-the-art datacenter facility in the metropolitan region Amsterdam. This strategic move marks a significant milestone for us, further solidifying our position as a leading player in the datacenter industry. With this expansion, we are poised to meet the growing demands of our clients for secure, high-performance data solutions. We look forward to leveraging the incredible potential of this facility and delivering exceptional services to our valued partners and customers worldwide.”
