A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated into this Item 7.01 by reference.

The information in this Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto, is being furnished and shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section and shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document pursuant to the Securities Act, except as otherwise stated in such filings.

Item 8.01. Other Events.

On October 15, 2021, Equinix entered into an agreement to form a joint venture with PGIM Real Estate, the real estate investment and financing arm of Prudential Financial's global asset management business (the "Joint Venture") whereby, upon closing, the Joint Venture will develop and operate two xScale data centers in Sydney, Australia. Pursuant to the terms of the Joint Venture, upon closing, PGIM Real Estate will control an 80% equity interest in the joint venture, and Equinix will own the remaining 20% equity interest.

The Joint Venture plans to secure financing prior to closing to fund a portion of the consideration paid to Equinix for the establishment of the Joint Venture and the planned development of the sites, working capital needs and other general corporate purposes of the Joint Venture.

The closing of the Joint Venture is subject to conditions including (i) certain financing conditions, including the fulfilment by each of Equinix and PGIM Real Estate of their funding obligations and obtaining certain external financing arrangements; (ii) completion of pre-closing reorganization; and (iii) obtaining required regulatory approvals.
