Vinge advises EQT Infrastructure in connection with its divestment of a minority stake in GlobalConnect to Mubadala

Vinge advises EQT Infrastructure III and IV funds (“EQT Infrastructure”) in connection with their divestment of a minority stake in the GlobalConnect group (“GlobalConnect”) to Mubadala Investment Company (“Mubadala”). Having been invested in GlobalConnect since 2017, EQT Infrastructure will remain as the largest shareholder following the closing of the transaction.

GlobalConnect is a fiber-based data communication and data centre services provider to enterprises, public institutions, and consumers in Northern Europe.

By welcoming Mubadala as a minority investor in GlobalConnect, EQT Infrastructure aims to broaden GlobalConnect's long-term shareholder base, while drawing on Mubadala’s prior investment experience in data centre and Fiber-to-the-Home assets in numerous markets.

The transaction is subject to customary conditions and approvals, and is expected to be completed in Q1 2023.
