    This is a huge honor and I am very proud to be listed alongside such amazing individuals. It also underlines the leading role that DigiPlex has taken in promoting the sustainability agenda globally. DigiPlex has given me the platform to address this essential issue in boardrooms and cabinet offices around the world, and we are now seeing actions resulting from those conversations. That is the true value of this award for me.
    Joachim Kauppi, Director of International Sales and Hyperscalers, DigiPlex
    Congratulations to Joachim on this well-earned achievement. He was already ‘one to watch’ when he joined us, but he has grabbed with both hands the opportunities that DigiPlex has offered and is now seen as an expert who blends the deep understanding of Nordic sustainability with truly global expertise and connections. We are very proud of our young talent and committed to attracting and developing the best people locally and globally to continue to grow our business and reputation. Joachim is an excellent representation of the people that make DigiPlex what we are today.
    Haakon Holm-Knapstad, Chief HR & Compliance Officer, DigiPlex
    I could not be prouder of the work of the team at DigiPlex responsible for the Fetsund transformation and it is great to see this investment acknowledged with winning the Hyperscale Investment of the Year award. To win this award is a great recognition of our combined efforts.
    Cathrine Telje, CFO, DigiPlex
    I am honored to be recognised as a Global Financial Leader but in truth the recognition really should go to the entirety of Team DigiPlex. It takes dedicated experts to secure the innovative funding and financial support that we have at DigiPlex. In fact, all the awards are very much a recognition of the strength of Team DigiPlex and all of their work, over many years. Those celebrated here tonight represent what the rest of the company produces every day: sustainable, well designed, well-constructed, high-end data centers that are well run and make happy customers.
    Byrne Murphy, Chairman, DigiPlex
    DigiPlex’ award winning marketing and communications transformation is a result of true teamwork and it is great to see that it is not only having a business impact, but is being recognised as best in class work. My all-star MarCom team and the DigiPlex family of fantastic brand ambassadors will continue to put "sustainability at the core" and challenge conventional thinking around data centres through pioneering marketing and communication efforts.
    Fredrik Jansson, Chief Strategy and Marketing/Communications Officer
    DigiPlex is focused on maintaining leadership, not only in revenues and environmental sustainability, but as an employer of choice in the fast-moving Nordic data centre sector. Partnering with Great Place to Work® helps ensure the best possible work experience for every employee and is an important part our commitment to our people. We are proud to be recognised again as a Great Place to Work.
    Haakon Holm-Knapstad, Chief HR Officer, DigiPlex
    There is still more to do in improving the working lives for our staff. One thing in particular is clear from these results and the comments from our staff – we need to get better at communicating. Our staff are our number one consideration and we need to get better at keeping them informed. This will be a personal objective for me in 2020.
    Haakon Holm-Knapstad, Chief HR Officer, DigiPlex
    Congratulations to DigiPlex for again being ranked as a Great Place to Work. I was really encouraged to see progress in several important areas – specifically in ensuring gender balance. Participation in our programme demonstrates that DigiPlex’ leadership is open and will be honest about the results and take them and the views of staff seriously. Ultimately, it is this honesty that builds the trust essential to a strong work culture.
    Jannik Krohn Falck, CEO Great Place to Work
    We are extremely happy and at the same time humble that our customers have given us such high marks for overall customer satisfaction. Our customers also ranked us above or at the benchmark for all criteria which is particularly gratifying, and a nice proof that our employees are delivering the value that our customers are looking for and appreciate. Our fantastic employees are crucial to our continued success and our leading position in the Nordic countries.”
    Halvor Bjerke, Chief Operating Officer for DigiPlex
    We will now increase our focus further to continue to meet, and if possible, outperform, our customers' high expectations. The fact that our customers ranked us extra highly on the category of collaboration is a good indication of a valuable partnership. We continue to look forward to proactively working to further optimize and develop our customers' IT delivery, business processes and potential opportunities.
    Halvor Bjerke, Chief Operating Officer for DigiPlex
    A large majority of Scandinavians want to be able to make sustainable decisions and reduce their climate impact – and this extends to their internet use.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO at DigiPlex
    If you stream a film through a power hungry data center that gets its energy from brown coal it will indeed contribute to climate change. Today’s consumers increasingly want to make an active green choice when it comes to using various internet services. Currently they do not have the information to make informed decisions.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO at DigiPlex
    Internet usage is a natural part of our everyday life that few can or want to give up. But, with eco-labelling consumers can put pressure on suppliers to ensure digital services are climate smart, energy efficient, use reusable energy and have minimal CO2 emissions. It is also no surprise that 70 percent want suppliers of digital services to report their energy usage and climate impact in, for example, their Annual Report.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO at DigiPlex
    Today’s digital world is characterised by rapid and continuous change; the ability to flexibly adapt to our client’s requirements is at the heart of DigiPlex’s offer. To be shortlisted for this important award is testament to our ingenuity, technical leadership and clear-sighted partnership with our customers.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex
    Perhaps more importantly, we have delivered on the demands of a large international client, in a very short timeframe whilst still maintaining exceptional operational efficiency.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex
    The strong investor interest, substantial oversubscription and the healthy trading development post issuance is a clear testament to the strong credit story and track record of DigiPlex built over almost two decades of operations. The market is clearly very receptive to profitable growth, high customer retention, leading market presence and a high-quality management team - we will continue to assess future financing options to fuel our growth.
    Byrne Murphy, Co-owner and Chairman of DigiPlex
    We see an incredible growth potential in the Nordic region driven by both international demand and Nordic enterprises moving their digital infrastructure from on-premise solutions into combinations of colocation and cloud. DigiPlex is very well placed to capture these exciting market opportunities.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex
    Our international customers see Norway as an excellent location for their data, with green and inexpensive energy, political stability and a cool climate. The two new centres we are announcing today will complement the three Norwegian centres we already operate, and form part of our continuing growth plans in the Nordics.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex
    These two new sites, which we’re excited to have operational as early as 2020, underline our ability to deliver against the high demands for speed, resource and capability that international customers have when considering build-out in new regions.
    Daniel Joyce, Chief Development Officer at DigiPlex
    According to IDC, 65% of European CEOs are under considerable pressure to deliver a successful digital transformation strategy to become a digital enterprise. The data centre sits at the core of this challenge as a critical strategic concern and opportunity for competitive advantage and sustainability. Data centres can be owned and operated in many ways, and there has never been a more important time to review and evaluate which options are best for you.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO DigiPlex
    Regardless of your industry, your current level of digitalisation or how you currently house and manage the data necessary to operate your business, taking an honest look at your data centre requirements and options regularly is critical to long-term success. Gartner predicts that by 2025, 80% of enterprises will migrate entirely away from on-premises data centres, a huge leap from the 10% who fit that mould in 2018. This trend is just the inevitable outcome of the migration of workloads to colocation sites, remote hosting and the cloud, resulting in the closure of traditional on-premises data centres.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO DigiPlex
    By putting such a vital part of your business in the hands of a professional partner, you are able to free up capital, releasing valuable resources such as innovation budget and facilities. The high level of service you can secure with the right provider allows you to increase focus on your core business and its future.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO DigiPlex
    We are very pleased to offer our customers direct connectivity to Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute. Digital infrastructure continues to move from on-premise solutions into combinations of colocation and cloud. To stay ahead in the digital transformation race, Nordic enterprises are increasingly demanding private and secure connections to strategic cloud providers such as Microsoft to ensure optimal performance and scalability. At DigiPlex, we are committed to supporting unrivalled service, the best connectivity and solutions which respond to evolving requirements and ways of working.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex
    It is great to build on our existing relationship with DigiPlex to add new connectivity options across the Nordics. We look forward to helping DigiPlex’s enterprise customers use Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute for their mission-critical workloads running in Azure.
    Ross Ortega, Partner PM Manager, Microsoft Azure Networking at Microsoft Corp.

    Peter Hase, CCO, Megaport
    The data centre industry is an exciting industry to be in as it is not an exaggeration to say our modern lives depend on the proper functioning of data centres. I am very proud to be part of a world class team and a world class provider of data centre services.
    Susan Liow, DigiPlex CFO
    Congratulations and thank you to Susan on this achievement and for her contribution to our success at DigiPlex. As the leading Nordic data centre operator, we are committed to creating a dynamic working culture and supporting a high-performing team that delivers service excellence. It is particularly exciting to see that members of our DigiPlex team are being recognised for their stewardship in the industry.

DigiPlex is committed to building and maintaining a sustainable data economy and delivering creative, high-performance solutions that benefit our communities and reduce energy demand.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex
    We are proud of our achievements in transforming data centre industry practices to support the prosperity of our shared future. Our team is committed to pushing the boundaries of sustainable thinking, whether through environmentally-efficient design in our new-builds or upgrading our existing data centre infrastructure.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex
    A winning combination of local knowledge and world-class engineering expertise have together helped us build a compelling proposition to hyperscale clients looking for an innovative and trusted partner in the Nordic region.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex
    One component of DigiPlex's success is to work very close to the market and from each customer's specific needs. Now we are taking the next step to meet customers in Denmark with full force. We have an explicit growth target and we work actively to establish additional data centers in Denmark.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex
    We are very pleased to have succeeded in recruiting these strong employees. We are now even more offensive in the market and offer more customers leading data centre solutions in innovation, sustainability and security in the Nordic region. It is also strong testimony that we are an attractive employer,” says Gisle M. Eckhoff. DigiPlex has always set the goal of being the most attractive brand in data centers, not only with our customers but also with our employees and potential employees. We are also the Nordic region’s leading brand and certified A Great Place To Work®.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex
    The strong investor interest is evidence of DigiPlex’s excellent track record and the exponential growth of the Group’s presence in the Nordics as well as its strong brand name in the industry built over 18 years of operations. We see an incredible growth potential in the Nordic region with the influx of international hyperscalers, and with this new bond, DigiPlex is gearing up to take yet another leap to capture these exciting market opportunities.
    Byrne Murphy, Co-owner and Chairman of DigiPlex
    The bond issue saw a very broad appeal across the investor community and is among the largest NOK denominated high yield bond issues ever placed in the Nordic market. The well attended roadshow, strong reception and substantially oversubscribed book of this DigiPlex bond issue is the result of a solid company and issuer track record, high customer retention, very strong market presence in the Nordics, a high-quality management team coupled with reputable sponsors backing the company and a well-timed transaction hitting a very receptive market sentiment.
    Henning Sørlie, Director, High Yield Origination at DNB Markets
    The market reaction to the offering was extremely positive with existing bondholders eager to not just roll over their existing positions but also to increase their subscriptions and new large local and international accounts coming in. The very low liquidity in the last two bond issues expresses the Group’s ability to deliver strong results and best-in-class services year after year - no one has wanted to sell their holdings.
    Byrne Murphy, Co-owner and Chairman of DigiPlex
    The cool Nordic Region is Europe’s hottest data centre market: a firm deploying 100 megawatts over 20 years could save approximately $2 billion by placing their data centre in Sweden or Norway versus the U.K. This bond issue further strengthens our ability to enable hyperscalers to quickly and seamlessly enter the Nordic market through a single data centre provider with an excellent track record.
    Byrne Murphy, Co-owner and Chairman of DigiPlex
    At DigiPlex we are proud of our achievements in transforming data centre industry practices to support the prosperity of our shared future.

    Leading innovative and renewable energy practices are at the core of our business ethos. Looking ahead, we are excited about expanding that choice further, so that more businesses can adopt an approach that sustains the environment.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex
    To be a successful digital player you need to know where and how your data is stored, in order to control your assets, comply with legislation and protect your brand. We are seeing increased concern over the digital environmental footprint, as well as physical protection as part of GDPR compliance and connected to risks like extreme weather or cyberattacks. These are only two of multiple key data centre factors businesses need to take into account.
    Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO DigiPlex
    Data centres are a growing business concern and the process of preparing the five questions has given me new insights into the important role of the data centre in digital transformation. Most importantly among these are, the issue of energy efficiency, how data centre service providers address power consumption, and the growing role of latency in digital. Location of data centres is on the agenda in the data driven economy
    Jan Horsager, Research Director IDC Nordic
