Data Center & Colocation Site Sale-Leaseback Options

Consider a Data Center Sale-Leaseback

For companies who own a data center that is reasonably up to date, it may be a good time to consider a sale-leaseback solution.

Selling a data center asset enables an enterprise to get out of data center management and return resources back to their core business, thereby recouping millions of dollars in capital, and preventing future losses in depreciation. By selling a data center asset, then leasing back their IT footprint, businesses stay in the facility as a tenant and use the returned operating capital on other priorities.

A data center sale-leaseback transaction can result in a lease for a fractional amount of or up to 100% of the data center footprint. As a tenant, the seller is removed from real-estate ownership responsibilities, and could relinquish space that was previously underutilized.
