("D9", the "Company" or, together with its subsidiaries, the "Group")


Verne Global Drawdown and Fixed Rate


The Board of Digital 9 Infrastructure plc (ticker: DGI9) is pleased to announce that Verne Global Iceland ("Verne Global" or the "Borrower") under its new green term loan debt facility (the "Facility") has drawn $100 million being the full amount available under the Facility.


The Borrower has also put in place an interest rate swap for the first three years of the Facility to manage longer-term fluctuations in interest rates. The fixed rate for the tenor of the swap is 4.14% per annum and the all-in fixed rate including the applicable margin is 7.14% per annum.


Phil Jordan, Chair of Digital 9 Infrastructure plc, commented:  


"Securing this debt at a c.7% interest rate enables Verne Global to continue funding its identified capital expenditure pipeline. We expect this development pipeline to generate significant returns that far exceed the cost of borrowing. This accretive financial milestone aligns with our goal of driving sustainable growth and enhancing shareholder value."
