Report: Digital Realty in talks to acquire Brazil data center operator Ascenty

Data center real estate investment trust Digital Realty Trust Inc. is in discussions to purchase Ascenty Ltda., a Brazilian data center operator valued at north of $1 billion, Bloomberg News reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

Digital Realty could reportedly bring in a joint venture partner to invest in Ascenty, which is majority owned by private equity firm Great Hill Partners LP. Private equity giant Blackstone Group LP's Blackstone Tactical Opportunities Advisors LLC owns a minority stake in Ascenty, according to the report.

A Digital Realty representative declined to comment on the matter, Bloomberg noted, adding that Ascenty and Great Hill Partners did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
