$56 Million Growth Equity Investment in IO

Sterling Partners, a leading U.S.-based private equity firm, announced today that it has led a $56 million growth equity investment in IO Data Centers, a fully integrated data center services company based in Scottsdale, AZ.

IO Data Centers designs, builds, and operates world class data centers providing conditioned, uninterruptible power available in internet-connected data center suites and colocation facilities to Information Technology departments of businesses and governments. IO Data Centers provides value to its customers through a proprietary process that integrates high performance engineering, design and construction, and 24/7/365 operations by its own staff of technology professionals. The Company plans to expand its footprint throughout North America to meet the increasing demands of its customers.

Sterling Partners Principal Shoshana Vernick said, “The continued high demand for data center services is not being met by existing supply or by existing service providers. IO Data Centers is well positioned to lead this next wave of data center expansion.”

Anthony Wanger, Co-Founder and President of the Company, added, “Our customers demand for 24/7/365 power is growing exponentially. The investment by Sterling provides IO Data Centers with the capital to significantly expand our data center operations and meet this demand, even under the current difficult conditions in the credit and equity markets. We are profitable, growing, and well-capitalized, which means that we will continue to be the leading provider of scalable IT infrastructure to our customers.”
