B Capital Partners AG advises German institutional investor on its investment into a German fibre-optic platform
Investment with growth potential: B Capital Partners AG has advised German institutional investor on its co-investment into the Deutsche Glasfaser Group alongside the Canadian pension fund OMERS.
Fibre-optic networks are part of the systemically relevant core-infrastructure of any country. Up to now, the nationwide coverage of fibre-optic networks in Germany is low in international comparison. The majority of existing networks is located in urban areas. Smaller cities and rural regions are significantly underserved. With its investment into Deutsche Glasfaser Group, the institutional investor advised by B Capital Partners therefore decided to go with an established player in the market, which focuses on non-metroplitan areas. This investment gives the investor the ability to participate in the growth in these regions.
This transaction allows the investor to complement its infrastructure portfolio with an additional investment that has stable cash-flows and an attractive risk-return profile.
B Capital Partners in its role as investment advisor has secured the access for the investor to this exciting co-investment opportunity with OMERS and has taken care of all aspects of the transaction from due diligence throughout to execution. On the legal side, the investor was advised by Allen & Overy.
