Fengate leads $1.8 bn investment to amplify eStruxture Data Center’s hyperscale growth

Amid soaring global demand for data storage and the processing of vast amounts of digital information, Fengate Asset Management and eStruxture Data Centers announced the completion of a groundbreaking $1.8 billion CAD transaction, setting a new standard for innovation and growth in the Canadian technology sector.

The record-breaking investment is the single biggest to ever be made in the Canadian data center sector and marks a pivotal moment in eStruxture’s strategic growth. The investment will enable the expansion of eStruxture’s portfolio of 15 state-of-the-art facilities nationwide to meet the demand for data center capacity.

Fengate, a leading North American alternative investment manager focused on infrastructure, private equity, and real estate strategies, significantly increased its equity stake in eStruxture with the sector-shaping deal, building on the longstanding business partnership. The firm’s investment in eStruxture includes newly-raised capital from a group of institutional secondary investors co-led by Partners Group, a leading global private markets firm, acting on behalf of its clients, and Pantheon, a leading specialist global private markets and secondary investor. Fengate is investing on behalf of Fengate Infrastructure Fund III, Fengate Infrastructure Fund IV and their affiliated entities, including an investment by LiUNA’s Pension Fund of Central and Eastern Canada.

Jonathan Wener and the Wener Family Office, along with Todd Coleman, Founder, President, and CEO of eStruxture, and the accompanying management team, will also reinvest a significant portion of their holdings in eStruxture. This reflects their strong confidence in its strategic vision and growth trajectory.

“For years, Fengate has had a front-row seat to the meteoric success of eStruxture, and that intimate perspective gives us full confidence to continue our relationship through this next exciting growth phase,” said Lou Serafini Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer at Fengate.

Todd Coleman commented on the partnership’s significance:

“This partnership with Fengate marks a transformative moment for eStruxture. It not only reflects our shared commitment to advancing Canada’s digital landscape but also positions us to lead in delivering highly scalable and sustainable digital infrastructure solutions that will empower businesses across Canada and beyond.”

“eStruxture is paving the way for Canada’s digital infrastructure sector,” said George Theodoropoulos, Managing Partner at Fengate. “Digital is a sector focus for our infrastructure business, and increasing our investment in eStruxture is an exciting and significant step toward realizing our digital infrastructure strategy.”

“The eStruxture team is truly best-in-class. Eight years ago, eStruxture was nothing but an idea. Today, we are Canada’s leading data center platform. Notwithstanding all we have accomplished, we believe the best is yet to come,” said Jonathan Wener.

As major technology players expand cloud regions across Canada, and AI and Machine Learning become integral to business operations, eStruxture is uniquely positioned to meet these needs with scalable and sustainable data center solutions. This strategic investment will accelerate eStruxture’s hyperscale growth, providing a launch pad for transformative expansion and solidifying its leadership in Canada’s digital infrastructure market.
