Cologne – A YPOG team led by Andreas Kortendick provided comprehensive advice to DTCP on its investment in data center operator maincubes as well as on the implementation of an investment structure for a separate pool of DTCP investors. DTCP joins maincubes as a new strategic partner and takes over the shares from the previous majority shareholder Art-Invest Real Estate. From now on, both shareholders will jointly hold the majority in maincubes.

With the participation of DTCP, maincubes gets an investor whose investments - especially in the areas of data centers, fiber optic networks and mobile towers - significantly drive the transformation of Europe's digital infrastructure. The joint venture between DTCP and Art-Invest Real Estate enables the company to benefit from the investors' expertise in the areas of digital infrastructure and real estate development.

Based on the new investor structure, maincubes will continue to drive its sustainable growth course in order to become one of Europe’s leading data center operators. To back this up, the two majority shareholders are planning to invest more than €1 billion in maincubes' growth over the next years.
