Aqua Comms was recently acquired by the digital investment trust Digital 9 Infrastructure PLC (AKA D9). How important was this and what does it mean for the company?
Let me start by sharing more about D9. The 9 in Digital 9 represents the UN’s Sustainability Goal No. 9 in the UN Charter, focusing on providing reasonably priced infrastructure throughout the world. Digital 9 Infrastructure plc (D9), is an LSE listed investment trust supported by investment manager Triple Point Investment Management LLP and the fund’s work explores a variety of infrastructure assets associated with the Internet’s foundation layer.
