French investment firm Antin Infrastructure Partners has announced an agreement to acquire Ufinet's Spanish business from private equity firm Cinven for an undisclosed amount. Ufinet Spain is a wholesale fibre platform with a nation-wide long-haul network and fast growing dark fibre, lit fibre and fibre to the home (FTTH) businesses. Antin said the transaction will result in the separation of the Ufinet Group into two separate companies, with Ufinet Spain acquired by Antin and the international operations of Ufinet acquired by the Sixth Cinven Fund.
