BC Partners in lead to buy CenturyLink data centers, Reuters says

BC Partners is in the leading position to acquire a data center business that CenturyLink (CTL) is seeking to divest for over $2.5B, Reuters reports, citing people familiar with the matter. BC Partners emerged as the lead bidder after a consortium including GTCR, Charlesbank Capital, Berkshire Partners, and Stonepeak Infrastructure fell apart without any agreement reached, the report says. The sale process is somewhat complex due to leases that CenturyLink has with Digital Realty Trust (DLR), making an agreement with BC Partners up in the air, the report says. Reference Link
