Dentons, working with Kirkland & Ellis, has advised AXA IM Alts on its sale of data center platforms Data4 to Brookfield Infrastructure.
According to Dentons, AXA IM Alts is a global leader in alternative investments with over EUR 186 billion of assets under management.
"Thanks to its early identification of the sector’s robust demand drivers, AXA IM Alts acquired full control of Data4 in 2018 and subsequently worked with the company’s management team to drive the substantial growth of the platform," AXA IM Alts press release stated. "This accelerated expansion program allowed AXA IM Alts to complete its business plan for the platform ahead of schedule and to crystallize value on behalf of clients."
The Dentons team included Poland-based Partners Aleksandra Minkowicz-Flanek and Piotr Staniszewski, as well as teams from the firm’s French, German, Italian, Luxembourg, Spanish, and UK offices.
