The company also signed leases totalling nearly $US28.8 million in annualised GAAP rental revenue, including $US3.9 million of co-location revenue during that quarter.

In Asia-Pacific, leases signed during the fourth quarter of 2012 for space totalled about 19,000 square feet of Turn-Key Flex space leased at an average annual GAAP rental rate of $US227.00 per square foot and 260 square feet of non-technical space leased at an average annual GAAP rental rate of $US83.00 per square foot.

According to Digital Realty CEO, Michael Foust, the high volume of commencements in the fourth quarter of 2012 drove its strongest annual performance to date for lease commencements.

“We are encouraged by the continued leasing momentum from January 2013 lease signings that add $18 million in annualised GAAP revenue to our backlog. We believe this represents stable pricing for our datacentre solutions across the majority of our global markets,” he added.
