Advestra has advised InfraVia III Green and its Swiss sub­si­di­ar­ies Green Group, Green Data­cen­ter and green​.ch in con­nec­tion with their com­pre­hens­ive CHF 480 mil­lion refin­an­cing with a bank­ing syn­dic­ate led by Crédit Agri­cole Cor­por­ate and Invest­ment Bank and ING Bank N.V. The funds will enable Green to accelerate its development strategy and to fund the next phase of its growth journey.

The leading Swiss data center operator is increasing its investment in Switzerland and is planning further developments to help hyperscale companies and enterprises with the rising demand for secure and energy-efficient data centers.

Advestra has acted as leg­al advisor to InfraVia and Green. The team included partner Alex­an­der von Jein­sen (pictured), Annina Ham­mer and Levy Corba (all fin­ance), as well as Céline Mar­tin (tax).
