Announcing on 26 November the development of two new data centres in Brisbane and Melbourne, NEXTDC Chief Executive Officer, Craig Scroggie commented that the fully underwritten $120m capital raising – together with NEXTDC's recent Notes II offer which raised $100m, plus $52.9m in cash and $50m in undrawn senior debt – means NEXTDC has more than $320m available to fund accelerated growth and deliver significant new capacity to the Australian data centre market.
