DIF Capital Partners acquires US-based data center provider Tonaquint

NEW YORK, NY, Jan 11, 2023 - (ACN Newswire) - DIF Capital Partners is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement to acquire Tonaquint Data Centers, a leading data center provider in the Mountain West region in the United States, headquartered in St. George, Utah. Tonaquint's management continues to hold a minority stake. The investment will be done through DIF's core-plus CIF III fund.

Tonaquint is a colocation and cloud service provider with operations in St. George, Utah and Boise, Idaho. The company offers a comprehensive set of critical infrastructure products and services and is active in a fast-growing segment of the digital industry. The acquisition will enable Tonaquint to continue its growth, enhancing its existing facilities and expanding its service offering.

Tonaquint is mainly focusing on high-growth smaller markets, which are not as well serviced by other major data center operators. It serves a well-diversified and growing client base in the technology, healthcare, financial services, and industrial sectors.

DIF data center operating advisor Michael DeVito will be joining the Tonaquint management team to further build out the company in North America.

Willem Jansonius, partner and Head of CIF at DIF Capital Partners, commented: "Given the rapid growth of the private cloud market, Tonaquint's product offering is right where the opportunities are. Now and in the years to come. Our investment will enable Tonaquint to further build towards a leading North American data center platform. The acquisition fits DIF's ambition to further grow in the digital infrastructure space in North America and beyond by investing in small to medium-sized businesses. That's exactly why we already started expanding our capabilities and expertise in the sector a few years ago."

Matt Hamlin, co-founder and CEO of Tonaquint said: "Working with the DIF team has been such a great experience. A very experienced team and a good strategic fit as they will be able to help our management team grow Tonaquint as we have envisioned in our overall business strategy. Our goals still remain the same: provide our customers with the best infrastructure and match it with the best client experience. That's who we are."

Philip Daley, co-founder and COO of Tonaquint added: "Tonaquint's ability to build and maintain quality data centers and cloud services is now enhanced by DIF's ability to bring additional capital and expertise in digital infrastructure. We look forward to expanding our footprint and services throughout the United States."

Bank Street Group LLC served as the exclusive financial advisor to Tonaquint in connection with this transaction. Agentis Capital served as an exclusive financial advisor to DIF.
