TierPoint, a connected data centre and cloud solutions company, has received $320m in a preferred equity funding round.
The round was led by Argo Infrastructure Partners, Wafra and Macquarie Capital Principal Finance, all of which made their first investments into TierPoint. Other contributions came from previous backers including Cequel III, Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, RedBird Capital Partners, The Stephens Group, and Thompson Street Capital Partners.
Capital from the round will be used to repay the company’s second lien credit facility in full, reduce its balance outstanding under its credit facility and foster growth of the platform.

Our team of world-class technology professionals are diligently focused on providing exceptional client service, with a compelling hybrid IT strategy and comprehensive suite of market-leading infrastructure solutions that are in high demand.”
