EXPLANATORY NOTE
Unless otherwise indicated or unless the context requires otherwise, all references in this report to “we,” “us,” “our,” “our Company” or “the Company” refer to CyrusOne Inc. together with its consolidated subsidiaries, including CyrusOne LP, a Maryland limited partnership. Unless otherwise indicated or unless the context requires otherwise, all references to “our operating partnership” or “the operating partnership” refer to CyrusOne LP together with its consolidated subsidiaries.
CyrusOne Inc. is a real estate investment trust, or REIT, whose only material asset is its ownership of operating partnership units of CyrusOne LP. As a result, CyrusOne Inc. does not conduct business itself, other than acting as the sole beneficial owner and sole trustee of CyrusOne GP (the sole general partner of CyrusOne LP), a Maryland statutory trust, issuing public equity from time to time and guaranteeing certain debt of CyrusOne LP and certain of its subsidiaries. CyrusOne Inc. itself does not issue any indebtedness but guarantees the debt of CyrusOne LP and certain of its subsidiaries, as disclosed in this report. CyrusOne LP holds substantially all the assets of the Company. CyrusOne LP conducts the operations of the business and is structured as a partnership with no publicly traded equity. Except for net proceeds from public equity issuances by CyrusOne Inc., which are generally contributed to CyrusOne LP in exchange for operating partnership units, CyrusOne LP generates the capital required by the Company's business through CyrusOne LP's operations and by CyrusOne LP's incurrence of indebtedness.
As of March 31, 2016, the total number of outstanding shares of common stock was 79.6 million and our former parent, Cincinnati Bell Inc. (CBI) owned approximately 8.7% of CyrusOne through its interest in the outstanding shares of common stock of CyrusOne Inc. On December 31, 2015, CyrusOne Inc. completed an exchange of all the operating partnership units owned, directly or indirectly, by CBI for an equal number of shares of common stock of CyrusOne Inc. As a result, CyrusOne Inc., directly or indirectly, owns all the operating partnership units of CyrusOne LP. As the direct or indirect owner of all the operating partnership units of CyrusOne LP and as sole beneficial owner and sole trustee of CyrusOne GP, which is the sole general partner of CyrusOne LP, CyrusOne Inc. has the full, exclusive and complete responsibility for the operating partnership's day-to-day management and control.
CyrusOne Inc. was formed on July 31, 2012, and prior to its initial public offering (which was completed on January 24, 2013) (the IPO), it had minimal activity, consisting solely of deferred offering costs. The consolidated financial statements included in this Form 10-Q of CyrusOne Inc. and its subsidiaries referred to, collectively, as “CyrusOne” the “Company” and “we” reflect the historical financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the data center activities and holdings of CBI for all periods presented.

CyrusOne Inc.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (unaudited)


1. Description of Business
CyrusOne Inc., together with CyrusOne GP, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CyrusOne Inc., through which CyrusOne Inc. holds a controlling interest in CyrusOne LP (the operating partnership) and the subsidiaries of the operating partnership (collectively, “CyrusOne”, “we”, “us”, “our”, and the “Company”) is an owner, operator and developer of enterprise-class, carrier-neutral, multi-tenant data center properties. Our customers operate in a number of industries, including information technology, financial services, energy, oil and gas, mining, medical and consumer goods and services. We currently operate 32 data centers and 2 recovery centers located in the United States, United Kingdom and Singapore.

2. Formation and Recent Developments

Formation
Prior to November 20, 2012, CyrusOne was not an operative legal entity or a combination of legal entities.
On November 20, 2012, the operating partnership received a contribution of interests in real estate properties and the assumption of debt and other specified liabilities from CBI in exchange for the issuance of 123.7 million operating partnership units to CBI.
On January 24, 2013, CyrusOne Inc. completed its initial public offering (the IPO) of common stock, issuing approximately 19.0 million shares for $337.1 million, net of underwriting discounts. At that time the operating partnership executed a 2.8 to 1.0 reverse unit split, resulting in CBI owning 44.1 million operating partnership units. In addition, CBI exchanged approximately 1.5 million of its operating partnership units for 1.5 million shares of CyrusOne Inc. common stock, and CBI was issued 0.4 million shares of CyrusOne Inc. common stock in repayment for transaction costs paid by CBI. CyrusOne Inc. also issued approximately 1.1 million shares of restricted stock to its directors and employees. In addition, on January 24, 2013, CyrusOne Inc., together with CyrusOne GP, purchased approximately 21.9 million, or 33.9%, of the operating partnership’s units for $337.1 million and through CyrusOne GP assumed the controlling interest in the operating partnership. CBI retained a noncontrolling interest in the operating partnership of 66.1%.
The Company completed public offerings in June 2014, April 2015, June 2015 and March 2016 of 16.0 million, 14.3 million, 13.0 million and 6.9 million shares of its common stock, respectively. The Company received $355.9 million, $426.0 million, $373.3 million and $255.0 million net proceeds from the public offerings in June 2014, April 2015, June 2015 and March 2016, respectively.
On December 14, 2015, CyrusOne Inc. completed a public secondary offering of 1,350,000 shares of common stock on behalf of CBI. The Company received no proceeds from the offering. On December 31, 2015, CyrusOne Inc. completed an issuance of approximately 6.3 million newly issued shares of common stock in exchange for an equal number of operating partnership units of CyrusOne LP, held by a subsidiary of CBI. As a result, as of March 31, 2016, CBI owned approximately 8.7% of the common stock of CyrusOne Inc. All of the 79.6 million outstanding operating partnership units of CyrusOne LP are owned, directly or indirectly, by CyrusOne Inc.
Recent Developments
In January 2016, CyrusOne LP borrowed $70.0 million from its senior unsecured revolving credit facility. On March 17, 2016, CyrusOne LP entered into a first amended and restated credit agreement (the Credit Agreement) which amended and restated in its entirety the credit agreement governing its senior unsecured revolving credit facility and senior unsecured term loan facility, originally dated as of October 9, 2014. The Credit Agreement provided for an additional $250.0 million senior unsecured term loan facility in addition to the existing senior unsecured term loan facility and senior unsecured revolving credit facility. CyrusOne LP borrowed $250.0 million under the additional senior unsecured term loan facility and used the proceeds to repay a portion of the amount outstanding under the revolving credit facility.
On March 21, 2016, CyrusOne Inc. completed a public offering of 6.9 million shares of its common stock for $255.0 million, net of underwriting discounts of approximately $10.6 million. CyrusOne Inc. used the proceeds of $255.0 million to acquire 6.9 million common units of operating partnership units. During the first quarter of 2016, the Company issued $0.9 million of common shares related to the exercise of stock options and $0.1 million of common shares related to the employee stock purchase plan. In total, offerings of common stock during the first quarter of 2016 resulted in $256.0 million of cash flow from financing activities on the consolidated statements of cash flows.
On March 31, 2016, CyrusOne LP used a portion of the proceeds to finance the purchase of the suburban Chicago data center in Aurora, Illinois from the CME Group, Inc. (CME Group) for approximately $130.0 million, and the Company incurred transaction related costs of $1.1 million. CyrusOne LP has used and intends to use the remaining proceeds to fund capital expenditures, to repay outstanding indebtedness under our revolving credit facility and for general corporate purposes.

3. Basis of Presentation
The accompanying financial statements as of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, and for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and March 31, 2015, are prepared on a consolidated basis.
In addition, the accompanying financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) and should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on February 26, 2016. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been omitted from this report on Form 10-Q pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC.
It should also be noted that the results for the interim periods shown in this report are not necessarily indicative of future financial results and have not been audited by our independent registered public accounting firm. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements include all adjustments necessary to present fairly our financial position as of March 31, 2016, and our results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015. These adjustments are of a normal recurring nature and consistent with the adjustments recorded to prepare the annual audited financial statements as of December 31, 2015. All amounts reflected are in millions except share and per share data.

4. Significant Accounting Policies
Use of Estimates—Preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. These estimates and assumptions are based on management’s knowledge of current events and actions that we may undertake in the future. Estimates are used in determining the fair value of leased real estate, including purchase price allocations for business combinations, the useful lives of real estate and other long-lived assets, future cash flows associated with goodwill and other long-lived asset impairment testing, deferred tax assets and liabilities and loss contingencies. Actual results may differ from these estimates and assumptions.
Investments in Real Estate—Investments in real estate consist of land, buildings, improvements and integral equipment utilized in our data center operations. Real estate acquired from third parties has been recorded at its acquisition cost. Real estate acquired from CBI and its affiliates has been recorded at its historical cost basis. Additions and improvements which extend an asset’s useful life or increase its functionality are capitalized and depreciated over the asset’s remaining life. Maintenance and repairs are expensed as incurred.
When we are involved in the construction of structural improvements to leased property, we are deemed the accounting owner of the leased real estate. In these instances, we bear substantially all the construction period risk, including managing or funding construction. As we have substantially all of the construction risks, we are deemed the “owner” of the asset under construction for accounting purposes during the construction period, and are therefore required to capitalize the construction costs on the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. At inception, the fair value of the building (excluding land) is recorded as an asset and the construction and modification costs to the building, which are not funded by us, would be recorded as a liability. As construction progresses, the value of the asset and obligation increases by the fair value of the structural improvements. At completion of the construction, Sales-Leaseback Accounting under ASC 840-40-25 is also evaluated. Due to our continuing involvement with the lessor, Sales-Leaseback Accounting is precluded and the liability is not derecognized. When the asset is placed in service, depreciation commences, and the leased real estate is depreciated to the lesser of (i) its estimated fair value at the end of the term or (ii) the expected amount of the unamortized obligation at the end of the term. The associated obligation is presented as Lease financing arrangements in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
When we are not deemed the accounting owner of leased real estate, we further evaluate the lease to determine whether it should be classified as a capital or operating lease. One of the following four characteristics must be present to classify a lease as a capital lease: (i) the lease transfers ownership of the property to the lessee by the end of the lease term, (ii) the lease contains a bargain purchase option, (iii) the lease term is equal to 75% or more of the estimated economic life of the leased property or (iv) the net present value of the lease payments are at least 90% of the fair value of the leased property.
Construction in progress includes direct and indirect expenditures for the construction and expansion of our data centers and is stated at its acquisition cost. Independent contractors perform substantially all of the construction and expansion efforts of our data centers. Construction in progress includes costs incurred under construction contracts including project management services, engineering and schematic design services, design development, construction services and other construction-related fees and services. Interest, property taxes and certain labor costs are also capitalized during the construction of an asset.

Depreciation is calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of the asset. Useful lives range from nine to thirty years for buildings, three to thirty years for building improvements, and three to twenty years for equipment. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the shorter of the asset’s useful life or the remaining lease term, including renewal options which are reasonably assured.
Management reviews the carrying value of long-lived assets, including intangible assets with finite lives, when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the assets may not be recoverable. Examples of such indicators may include a significant adverse change in the extent to which or manner in which the property is being used, an accumulation of costs significantly in excess of the amount originally expected for acquisition or development, or a history of operating or cash flow losses. When such indicators exist, we review an estimate of the undiscounted future cash flows expected to result from the use of an asset (or group of assets) and its eventual disposition and compare such amount to its carrying amount. We consider factors such as future operating income, leasing demand, competition and other factors. If our undiscounted net cash flows indicate that we are unable to recover the carrying value of the asset, an impairment loss is recognized. An impairment loss is measured as the amount by which the asset’s carrying value exceeds its estimated fair value.
For the three months ended March 31, 2015, we recognized impairments of $8.6 million related to the Austin 1 lease termination. There were no impairments recognized for the three months ended March 31, 2016.
Business Combinations—The Company applies the purchase method for business combinations, where all tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and all liabilities assumed are recorded at fair value. Any excess purchase price is recorded as goodwill. Transaction costs associated with business combinations are expensed as incurred. Revenues and the results of operations of the acquired business are included in the accompanying consolidated financial statements commencing on the date of acquisition.
Cash and Cash Equivalents—Cash and cash equivalents include all non-restricted cash held in financial institutions and other non-restricted highly liquid short-term investments with original maturities at acquisition of three months or less.
Restricted Cash—Restricted cash includes cash equivalents held to collateralize standby letters of credit and/or deposited in escrow to fund construction or pending potential acquisition transactions. In addition, we may have other cash that is not immediately available for use in current operations.

Goodwill—Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of net assets acquired in connection with business acquisitions. We perform impairment testing of goodwill, at the reporting unit level, on an annual basis or more frequently if indicators of potential impairment exist.

The fair value of our reporting unit was determined using a combination of market-based valuation multiples for comparable businesses and discounted cash flow analysis based on internal financial forecasts incorporating market participant assumptions. There were no impairments recognized for any of the periods presented.
Long-Lived and Intangible Assets—Intangible assets represent purchased assets that lack physical substance, but can be separately distinguished from goodwill because of contractual or other legal rights or because the asset is capable of being sold or exchanged, either on its own or in combination with a related contract, asset, or liability. Intangible assets with finite lives consist of trademarks, customer relationships, and a favorable leasehold interest.

Rent and Other Receivables—Receivables consist principally of trade receivables from customers and are generally unsecured and due within 30 to 120 days. Unbilled receivables arise from services rendered but not yet billed. Expected credit losses associated with trade receivables are recorded as an allowance for uncollectible accounts. The allowance for uncollectible accounts is estimated based upon historic patterns of credit losses for aged receivables as well as specific provisions for certain identifiable, potentially uncollectible balances. When internal collection efforts on accounts have been exhausted, the accounts are written-off and the associated allowance for uncollectible accounts is reduced.
Deferred Leasing Costs—Deferred leasing costs are presented with Other assets in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. Leasing commissions incurred at the commencement of a new lease are capitalized and amortized over the term of the customer lease. Amortization of deferred leasing costs is presented with Depreciation and amortization in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations. If a lease terminates prior to the expiration of the lease, the remaining unamortized cost is written off to amortization expense. As of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, deferred leasing costs were $16.2 million and $14.2 million, respectively.
Deferred Financing Costs—Deferred financing costs include costs incurred in connection with issuance of debt, including 6.375% senior notes, term loans and revolving credit facilities. These costs include deferred financing costs associated with our revolving line of credit and are presented in the balance sheet as a direct reduction from the carrying amount of the debt liability to conform

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (unaudited)

to the 2015 presentation. These financing costs are capitalized and amortized to expense over the term of the instrument and are included as a component of Interest expense.
Revenue Recognition—Colocation rentals are generally billed monthly in advance, and some contracts have escalating payments over the term of the contract. If rents escalate without the lessee gaining access to or control over additional leased space or power, and the lessee takes possession of, or controls the physical use of the property (including all contractually committed power) at the beginning of the lease term, the rental payments by the lessee are recognized as revenue on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. If rents escalate because the lessee gains access to and control over additional leased space or power, revenue is recognized in proportion to the additional space or power in the periods that the lessee has control over the use of the additional space or power. The excess of revenue recognized over amounts contractually due is recognized in Other assets in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
Some of our leases are structured on a full-service gross basis in which the customer pays a fixed amount for both colocation rent and power. Other leases provide that the customer will be billed for power based upon actual usage which is separately metered. In both cases, this revenue is presented as Revenue in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations. Power is generally billed one month in arrears, and an estimate of this revenue is accrued in the month that the associated costs are incurred. We generally are not entitled to reimbursements for real estate taxes, insurance or other operating expenses. We receive an administrative fee when we manage the meters for our customers.
Revenue is recognized for services or products that are deemed separate units of accounting. When a customer makes an advance payment or they are contractually obligated to pay any amounts in advance, which is not deemed a separate unit of accounting, Deferred revenue is recorded. This revenue is recognized ratably over the expected term of the lease, unless the pattern of service suggests otherwise. As of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, Deferred revenue was $76.4 million and $78.7 million, respectively.
Certain customer leases require specified levels of service or performance. If we fail to meet these service levels, our customers may be eligible to receive credits on their contractual billings. These credits are recognized against revenue when an event occurs that gives rise to such credits.

A provision for uncollectible accounts is recognized when the collection of contractual rent, straight-line rent or customer reimbursements are deemed to be uncollectible.
Depreciation and Amortization Expense—Depreciation expense is recognized over the estimated useful lives of real estate applying the straight-line method. The useful life of leased real estate and leasehold improvements is the lesser of the economic useful life of the asset or the term of the lease, including optional renewal periods if renewal of the lease is reasonably assured. The residual value of leased real estate is estimated as the lesser of (i) the expected fair value of the asset at the end of the lease term or (ii) the expected amount of the unamortized liability at the end of the lease term. Estimated useful lives are periodically reviewed. Depreciation expense was $33.0 million and $26.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.
Amortization expense is recognized over the estimated useful lives of finite-lived intangibles. Finite-lived intangibles include trademarks, customer relationships, favorable leasehold interests and deferred leasing costs. As of March 31, 2016, the estimated weighted average useful life of trademarks and customer relationships was 10 and 13 years, respectively. In addition, we have a favorable leasehold interest related to a land lease that is being amortized over the lease term of 51 years. Deferred leasing costs are amortized over 3 to 5 years. Amortization expense was $6.3 million and $4.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. 
Transaction and Acquisition Integration Costs—Transaction costs represent incremental legal, accounting and professional fees incurred in connection with the formation transactions, our qualification as a real estate investment trust, or REIT, and potential business combinations. Transaction costs are expensed as incurred and do not include any recurring costs from our ongoing operations. Integration costs represent incremental costs to integrate a consummated acquisition.
Income Taxes—The income tax provision consists of an amount for taxes currently payable and an amount for tax consequences deferred to future periods. CyrusOne Inc. has elected to be taxed as a REIT under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the Code), commencing with our initial taxable year ending December 31, 2013. Provided we continue to meet the various qualification tests mandated under the Code, we are generally not subject to corporate level federal income tax on the earnings distributed currently to our shareholders. If we fail to qualify as a REIT in any taxable year, our taxable income will be subject to federal income tax at regular corporate rates and any applicable alternative minimum tax, and we may not be able to qualify as a REIT for four subsequent taxable years.

13

CyrusOne Inc.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (unaudited)

While CyrusOne Inc. and the operating partnership do not pay federal income taxes, we are still subject to foreign, state and local income taxes in the locations in which we conduct business. Our taxable REIT subsidiaries (each a TRS) are also subject to federal and state income taxes to the extent they earn taxable income.
Deferred income taxes are recognized in certain entities. Deferred income taxes are provided for temporary differences in the basis between financial statement and income tax assets and liabilities. Deferred income taxes are recalculated annually at rates then in effect. Valuation allowances are recorded to reduce deferred tax assets to amounts that are more likely than not to be realized. The ultimate realization of the deferred tax assets depends upon our ability to generate future taxable income during the periods in which basis differences and other deductions become deductible and prior to the expiration of the net operating loss carryforwards.
The Company and its subsidiaries file income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction as well as various foreign, state and local jurisdictions.  The Company's previous tax filings are subject to normal reviews by regulatory agencies until the related statute of limitations expires.  With a few exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to U. S. federal, state or local examinations for years prior to 2012, and we have no liabilities for uncertain tax positions as of March 31, 2016.
Earnings Per Share—Basic EPS includes only the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS includes the weighted average number of common shares and the dilutive effect of stock options, restricted stock and share unit awards outstanding during the period, when such instruments are dilutive.
All outstanding unvested share-based payment awards that contain rights to nonforfeitable dividends are treated as participating in undistributed earnings with common shareholders. Awards of this nature are considered participating securities and the two-class method of computing basic and diluted EPS must be applied.
Stock-Based Compensation—In conjunction with the IPO, our board of directors adopted the 2012 Long-Term Incentive Plan (LTIP). The LTIP is administered by the compensation committee of the board of directors, or the plan administrator. Awards issuable under the LTIP include common stock, restricted stock, stock options and other incentive awards. See Note 11 for additional details relating to these awards.
Share-based compensation expense is based on the estimated grant-date fair value. CyrusOne Inc. recognizes share-based compensation expense, less estimated forfeitures, on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period for time-based awards and on a graded vesting basis for performance-based awards. CyrusOne estimates forfeitures based on historical activity, expected employee turnover, and other qualitative factors which are adjusted for changes in estimates and award vesting. All expenses for an award will be recognized by the time it becomes fully vested.
CyrusOne Inc. uses the Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model to calculate the fair value of stock options. This option valuation model requires the use of subjective assumptions, including the estimated fair value of the underlying common stock, the expected stock price volatility, and the expected term of the option. The estimated fair value of the underlying common stock is based on third-party valuations. Our volatility estimates are based on a peer group of companies. We estimate the expected term of the awards to be the weighted average mid-point between the vesting date and the end of the contractual term. We use this method to estimate the expected term since we do not have sufficient historical exercise data.
For interim periods, we use our year-to-date actual results, financial forecasts, and other available information to estimate the probability of the award vesting based on the performance metrics.
Business Segments—Business segments are components of an enterprise for which separate financial information is available and regularly viewed by the chief operating decision maker to assess performance and allocate resources. Our chief operating decision maker, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, reviews our financial information on an aggregate basis. Furthermore, our data centers have similar economic characteristics and customers across all geographic locations, and our service offerings have similar production processes, deliver services in a similar manner and use the same types of facilities and similar technologies. As a result, we have concluded that we have one reportable business segment.

Recently Issued Accounting StandardsAccounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09 (ASU 2014-09), Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued guidance that outlines a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most of the existing revenue recognition guidance. This guidance requires an entity to recognize revenue when it transfers promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services and also requires certain additional disclosures which are effective for interim and annual reporting periods in fiscal years that begin after December 15, 2016. In July 2015, the FASB voted to approve a one-year deferral of the effective date to December 15, 2017 for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after that date and permitted early adoption of the standard, but not

14

CyrusOne Inc.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (unaudited)

before the original effective date of December 15, 2016. This guidance permits two implementation approaches. Companies can choose to apply the standard retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented (full retrospective application) or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying the standard as an adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings of the annual reporting period that includes the date of initial application (modified retrospective application). We are currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of this guidance in our consolidated financial statements.

ASU No. 2016-01 (ASU 2016-01), Financial instruments-Overall (Subtopic 825-10)

In January 2016, the FASB amended its standards related to the accounting of certain financial instruments. This amendment addresses certain aspects of recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure. The new rules will become effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is not permitted. We are in the process of evaluating the impact the amendment will have on the consolidated financial statements.

ASU No. 2016-02 (ASU 2016-02), Leases (Topic 842)

In February 2016, the FASB issued accounting standard update (ASU) No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). This new lease guidance requires that an entity should recognize assets and liabilities for leases with a maximum possible term of more than 12 months. A lessee would recognize a liability to make lease payments (the lease liability) and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the leased asset (the underlying asset) for the lease term. Leases would be classified as either Type A leases (generally today’s capital leases) or Type B leases (generally today’s operating leases). For certain leases of assets other than property (for example, equipment, aircraft, cars, trucks), a lessee would classify the lease as a Type A lease and would do the following: (1) recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability, initially measured at the present value of lease payments and (2) recognize the unwinding of the discount on the lease liability as interest separately from the amortization of the right-of-use asset. For certain leases of property (that is, land and/or a building or part of a building), a lessee would classify the lease as a Type B lease and would do the following: (1) recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability, initially measured at the present value of lease payments  and (2) recognize a single lease cost, combining the unwinding of the discount on the lease liability with the amortization of the right-of-use asset, on a straight-line basis. This guidance also provides accounting updates with respect to lessor accounting under a lease arrangement. This new lease guidance is effective for CyrusOne beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2019. Entities have the option of using either a full retrospective or a modified approach (cumulative effect adjustment in period of adoption) to adopt the new guidance. Early adoption is permitted for all entities. We are currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of this guidance in our consolidated financial statements.

ASU No. 2016-09 (ASU 2016-09), Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting (Subtopic 718)

In March 2016, the FASB issued guidance which simplifies several aspects of the accounting for employee share-based payment transactions for both public and nonpublic entities, including the accounting for income taxes, forfeitures, and statutory tax withholding requirements, as well as classification in the statement of cash flows. This guidance is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those annual reporting periods. Early adoption is permitted. We are currently evaluating the full impact of the new standard.


5. Acquisitions of Fixed Assets

On March 31, 2016, CyrusOne LP purchased CME Group's suburban Chicago data center in Aurora, Illinois for $131.1 million, including transaction related costs, in an all cash transaction. CyrusOne LP financed the purchase with proceeds of CyrusOne Inc's March 2016 common stock offering. The purchase enhances the geographic diversification of CyrusOne, provides access to a high quality enterprise customer base and strengthens our product portfolio. The transaction adds to CyrusOne Inc.'s existing data center platform a 428,000 square-foot facility data center serving the Chicago metropolitan region. In addition, CyrusOne acquired approximately 15 acres of land directly adjacent to the data center for future development.

The CME Group entered into a 15-year lease for data center space at the Aurora facility. The CME Group's electronic trading platform, CME Globex, is to remain in operation within this space. The agreement is expected to enhance the range of services available to the Company and CME Group's mutual customers through connectivity, hosting and data offerings.

During 2016, we are continuing to invest in the development of new data centers. Our capital expenditures have included the development of additional square footage and power in our Phoenix 2, Houston West 3, Carrollton and Northern Virginia data centers. During 2015, we purchased Austin 4. The total purchase price of the Austin 4 facility was $17.3 million, of which $3.3 million was allocated to land.
Impairment is recorded when the Company's net book value of real estate assets is greater than the estimated fair value. For the period ended March 31, 2015, we recognized an impairment of $8.6 million related to the exit of Austin 1, which is a leased facility. The effective date of our lease termination is December 31, 2016; however, we may exit at our discretion with a 30 day notice.

Credit Facility— On October 9, 2014, CyrusOne LP entered into a credit agreement (the 2014 Credit Facility) which originally provided for a $450.0 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility to replace CyrusOne LP's former $225.0 million secured credit facility, and a $150.0 million senior unsecured term loan (the Initial Term Loan).
On June 22, 2015, CyrusOne LP entered into an amendment to the 2014 Credit Facility and other loan documents governing its revolving credit facility and term loan facility. The amendment increased the size of the 2014 Credit Facility's accordion feature from $300.0 million to $600.0 million. Immediately after entering into the amendment, the operating partnership exercised $350.0 million of this accordion feature and obtained commitments to increase the total commitment under the 2014 Credit Facility from $600.0 million to $950.0 million, comprised of $650.0 million of commitments under the revolving credit facility and $300.0 million under the term loan.
On March 17, 2016, CyrusOne LP entered into a first amended and restated credit agreement (the Credit Agreement) which amended and restated in its entirety the 2014 Credit Facility, as amended previously. The Credit Agreement provides for an additional $250.0 million senior unsecured term loan facility (the Additional Term Loan) in addition to the existing $300.0 million senior unsecured term loan facility and the existing $650.0 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility. The Credit Agreement has an accordion feature under which CyrusOne LP may request an increase in the total commitments up to an amount not to exceed $250.0 million. Deferred financing costs of $2.1 million related to the Credit Agreement were recorded as of March 31, 2016.
The revolving credit facility is scheduled to mature in October 2018 and includes a one-year extension option, which if exercised by CyrusOne LP would extend the maturity date to October 2019. The Initial Term Loan is scheduled to mature in October 2019. The Additional Term Loan is scheduled to mature in September 2021. The revolving credit facility currently bears interest at a rate per annum equal to LIBOR plus 1.70% and the Term Loans currently bear interest at a rate per annum equal to LIBOR plus 1.65%.
On March 17, 2016, CyrusOne LP borrowed $250.0 million in loans under the Additional Term Loan. The net proceeds were applied to repay a portion of the amount outstanding under the revolving credit facility.

CyrusOne Inc.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (unaudited)

We pay commitment fees for the unused amount of borrowings on the revolving credit facility and term loan and letter of credit fees on any outstanding letters of credit. The commitment fees are equal to 0.25% per annum of the actual daily amount by which the aggregate revolving commitments exceed the sum of outstanding revolving loans and letter of credit obligations. Commitment fees related to the Credit Agreement were $0.3 million and $0.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.
6.375% Senior Notes due 2022—On November 20, 2012, CyrusOne LP and CyrusOne Finance Corp. (Issuers) issued $525.0 million of 6.375% senior notes due 2022 (6.375% senior notes). The 6.375% senior notes are senior unsecured obligations of the Issuers, which rank equally in right of payment with all existing and future unsecured senior debt of the Issuers. The 6.375% senior notes are effectively subordinated to all existing and future secured indebtedness of the Issuers to the extent of the value of the assets securing such indebtedness. The 6.375% senior notes are fully and unconditionally and jointly and severally guaranteed by CyrusOne Inc., CyrusOne GP, and each of CyrusOne LP’s existing and future domestic 100% owned subsidiaries, subject to certain exceptions. Each such guarantee is a senior unsecured obligation of the applicable guarantor, ranking equally with all existing and future unsecured senior debt of such guarantor and effectively subordinated to all existing and future secured indebtedness of such guarantor to the extent of the value of the assets securing that indebtedness. The 6.375% senior notes are structurally subordinated to all liabilities (including trade payables) of each subsidiary of the Issuers that does not guarantee the senior notes. The 6.375% senior notes bear interest at a rate of 6.375% per annum, payable semi-annually on May 15 and November 15 of each year.
The 6.375% senior notes will mature on November 15, 2022. However, prior to November 15, 2017, the Issuers may, at their option, redeem some or all of the 6.375% senior notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the 6.375% senior notes being redeemed, together with accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of redemption plus a “make-whole” premium. On or after November 15, 2017, the Issuers may, at their option, redeem some or all of the 6.375% senior notes at any time at declining redemption prices equal to (i) 103.188% beginning on November 15, 2017, (ii) 102.125% beginning on November 15, 2018, (iii) 101.063% beginning on November 15, 2019 and (iv) 100.000% beginning on November 15, 2020 and thereafter, plus, in each case, accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the applicable redemption date. In addition, before November 15, 2015, and subject to certain conditions, the Issuers may, at their option, redeem up to 35% of the aggregate principal amount of the 6.375% senior notes with the net proceeds of certain equity offerings at a redemption price equal to 106.375% of the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of redemption; provided that (i) at least 65% of the aggregate principal amount of the 6.375% senior notes remains outstanding after the redemption and (ii) the redemption occurs within 90 days of the closing of any such equity offering.
In November and December of 2014, we repurchased a portion of our 6.375% senior notes with an aggregate face value of $150.2 million for a purchase price of $163 million, including accrued and unpaid interest. This resulted in a loss on extinguishment of debt of $12.8 million.
On July 1, 2015, the Issuers closed a private offering of $100.0 million aggregate principal amount of the 6.375% senior notes (New Notes) plus a premium of $3.8 million. The New Notes were issued as additional notes under the Indenture dated November 20, 2012 as supplemented by the first supplemental indenture dated July 1, 2015, and the New Notes have terms substantially identical to those of the 6.375% senior notes issued in November 2012. The Issuers and guarantors of the New Notes entered into a registration rights agreement which requires them, at their cost, to use commercially reasonably efforts to file and cause to become effective a registration statement within 180 days of July 1, 2015, to be used in connection with the exchange of the New Notes for freely tradable notes with substantially identical terms in all material respects to the New Notes (which exchange must be completed on or prior to the 30th day after such registration statement is declared effective). On December 29, 2015, all notes issued on July 1, 2015 were exchanged for registered notes.
Debt Covenants —The Credit Agreement requires us to maintain certain financial covenants including the following, in each case on a consolidated basis:
A minimum fixed charge ratio;
Maximum total and secured leverage ratios;
A minimum tangible net worth ratio;
A maximum secured recourse indebtedness ratio;
A minimum unencumbered debt yield ratio; and
A maximum ratio of unsecured indebtedness to unencumbered asset value.
Notwithstanding these limitations, we will be permitted, subject to the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement, to distribute to our shareholders cash dividends in an amount not to exceed 95% of our Funds From Operations (FFO), as defined in the Credit Agreement for any period. Similarly, our indenture permits dividends and distributions necessary for us to maintain our status as a REIT.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (unaudited)

The Company’s most restrictive covenants are generally included in the Credit Agreement. In order to continue to have access to amounts available to it under the Credit Agreement, the Company must remain in compliance with all covenants.
The indenture governing the 6.375% senior notes contains affirmative and negative covenants customarily found in indebtedness of this type, including a number of covenants that, among other things, restrict, subject to certain exceptions, the Company’s ability to: incur secured or unsecured indebtedness; pay dividends or distributions on its equity interests, or redeem or repurchase equity interests of the Company; make certain investments or other restricted payments; enter into transactions with affiliates; enter into agreements limiting the ability of the operating partnership’s subsidiaries to pay dividends or make certain transfers and other payments to the operating partnership or to other subsidiaries; sell assets; and merge, consolidate or transfer all or substantially all of the operating partnership’s assets. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the covenants contained in the indenture do not restrict the Company’s ability to pay dividends or distributions to shareholders to the extent (i) no default or event of default exists or is continuing under the indenture and (ii) the Company believes in good faith that we qualify as a REIT under the Code and the payment of such dividend or distribution is necessary either to maintain its status as a REIT or to enable it to avoid payment of any tax that could be avoided by reason of such dividend or distribution. The Company and its subsidiaries are also required to maintain total unencumbered assets of at least 150% of their unsecured debt on a consolidated basis, provided that for the purposes of such calculation their revolving credit facility shall be treated as unsecured indebtedness, in each case subject to certain qualifications set forth in the indenture.
As of March 31, 2016, we believe we were in compliance with all covenants.
Notes payable—As of March 31, 2016, the Company had a note payable for approximately $1.5 million with a third-party for electrical infrastructure at one of the Company's locations. The note payable matures in January 2034. We will pay approximately $9,000 per month until maturity under the note payable.
Deferred financing costs—Deferred financing costs are costs incurred in connection with obtaining long-term financing. Deferred financing costs were incurred in connection with the issuance of the revolving credit facility and term loan and 6.375% senior notes due 2022. As of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, deferred financing costs totaled $18.8 million and $17.6 million, respectively. Deferred financing costs related to the senior notes are amortized using the effective interest method over the term of the related indebtedness. Deferred financing costs related to the revolving credit facility and Existing Term Loan and Additional Term Loan are amortized using the straight-line method. Amortization of deferred financing costs, included in Interest expense in the consolidated statements of operations totaled $0.9 million and $0.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.
Capital lease obligations—We use leasing as a source of financing for certain of our data center facilities and related equipment. We currently operate eight data center facilities recognized as capital leases. We have options to extend the initial lease term on all these leases and options to purchase the facility for one of these leases.
Lease financing arrangements—Lease financing arrangements represent leases of real estate in which we are involved in the construction of structural improvements to develop buildings into data centers. When we bear substantially all the construction period risk, such as managing or funding construction, we are deemed to be the accounting owner of the leased property and, at the lease inception date, we are required to record at fair value the property and associated liability on our balance sheet. These transactions generally do not qualify for sale-leaseback accounting due to our continued involvement in these data center operations.
Interest expense on Capital lease obligations and Lease financing arrangements was $2.4 million and $1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

8. Fair Value of Financial Instruments
Fair value measurements are utilized in accounting for business combinations and testing of goodwill and other long-lived assets for impairment and disclosures. Fair value of financial and non-financial assets and liabilities is defined as an exit price, representing the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date under current market conditions. The three-tier hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value, which prioritizes the inputs used in the methodologies of measuring fair value for assets and liabilities, is as follows:
Level 1—Observable inputs for identical instruments such as quoted market prices;
Level 2—Inputs include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (i.e., interest rates, yield curves, etc.), and inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means (market corroborated inputs); and

19

CyrusOne Inc.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (unaudited)


Level 3—Unobservable inputs that reflect our determination of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. These inputs are developed based on the best information available, including our own data.
The fair value of Cash and cash equivalents, Restricted cash, Rent and other receivables, Accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate their carrying value because of the short-term nature of these instruments.
The carrying value and fair value of other financial instruments are as follows:

The fair value of our 6.375% senior notes as of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015 was based on the quoted market price for these notes, which is considered Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy. The carrying value of the revolving credit facility and term loan approximates estimated fair value as of March 31, 2016, due to the variability of interest rates and the stability of our credit ratings. The fair value of the note payable at March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, was calculated using a discounted cash flow model that incorporates current borrowing rates for obligations of similar duration. These fair value measurements are considered Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.

In conjunction with the IPO, the board of directors of CyrusOne Inc. adopted the LTIP. The LTIP is administered by the board of directors. Awards issuable under the LTIP include common stock, restricted stock, stock options and other incentive awards. CyrusOne Inc. has reserved a total of 4.0 million shares of CyrusOne Inc. common stock for issuance pursuant to the LTIP, which may be adjusted for changes in capitalization and certain corporate transactions. To the extent that an award, if forfeitable, expires, terminates or lapses, or an award is otherwise settled in cash without the delivery of shares of common stock to the participant, then any unpaid shares subject to the award will be available for future grant or issuance under the LTIP. The payment of dividend equivalents in cash in conjunction with any outstanding awards will not be counted against the shares available for issuance under the LTIP. The related stock compensation expense incurred by CyrusOne Inc. is allocated to the operating partnership. Shares available under the LTIP at March 31, 2016, were approximately 0.8 million. Shares vest according to each agreement and as long as the employee remains employed with the Company. The Company uses the Black-Scholes option-pricing model for time and performance-based options and a Monte Carlo simulation for market-based awards. Compensation expense is measured based on the estimated grant-date fair value. Expense for time-based grants is recognized under a straight-line method. For market-based grants, expense is recognized under a graded expense attribution method. For performance-based grants, expense is recognized under a graded expense attribution method if it is probable that the performance targets will be achieved.
Founders Grants
On January 24, 2013, the Company granted 1.0 million shares of time-based restricted stock, which had an aggregate value of $19.0 million on the grant date. Holders of the restricted stock have all of the rights and privileges of shareholders including but not limited to the right to vote, receive dividends and distributions upon liquidation of CyrusOne. These shares vested on January 24, 2016.
2013 Grants
On April 17, 2013, the Company issued performance and market-based awards under the LTIP in the form of stock options and restricted stock. The grant date fair value of the restricted stock was $23.58 per share.
For these awards, vesting was tied 50% to the achievement of cumulative EBITDA targets and 50% to a market-based performance measure. These awards generally vest annually over a three-year period upon the achievement of cumulative EBITDA targets. The first two years are capped at 100% of the target with a cumulative true-up in year three. The portion of the award tied to market-based measures cliff vest at the end of three years upon the achievement of the applicable targets.
There were additional shares of time-based restricted stock issued during 2013 that cliff vest at the end of three years. The stock option awards have a contractual life of 10 years from the award date and were granted with an exercise price equal to $23.58 per share.
The holders of restricted stock shall have all of the rights and privileges of shareholders including the right to vote. Any dividends paid with respect to the shares shall be accrued by the Company and distributed on the vesting date provided that the applicable performance goal has been attained. As of March 31, 2016, there was no unearned compensation representing the unvested portion of the awards granted during 2013 (excluding the Founders awards).
2014 Grants
On February 7, 2014, the Company issued performance and market-based awards under the LTIP in the form of restricted stock. The grant date fair value of the restricted stock was $20.65 per share.
For these awards, vesting was tied 50% to the achievement of cumulative Adjusted EBITDA targets and 50% to a market-based performance measure. These awards generally vest annually over a three-year period upon the achievement of cumulative Adjusted

Twenty-five percent of the restricted stock awards are subject to time-based vesting and seventy-five percent of the restricted stock awards are equally split between performance-based and market-based vesting.
The time-based restricted stock awards vest pro-rata annually over three years. The performance and market-based restricted stock awards vest annually based upon the achievement of certain criteria for each of the three-year measurement periods. The first two years are capped at 100% of the target with a cumulative true-up in year three.
The stock options are time-based and vest annually on a pro-rata basis over 3 years. The stock option awards have a contractual life of 10 years from the award date and were granted with an exercise price equal to $28.44.

In addition, the Company issued stock options on February 1, 2016. The stock options are time-based and vest annually on a pro-rata basis over 3 years. The stock option awards have a contractual life of 10 years from the award date and were granted with an exercise price equal to $36.99. The Company issued 222,461 options with a grant date fair value of $6.99.
As of March 31, 2016, unearned compensation representing the unvested portion of the awards granted in 2016, net of forfeitures, totaled $17.3 million, with a weighted average vesting period of 2.3 years.

12. Income (Loss) per Share
Basic income (loss) per share is calculated using the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. In addition, net income (loss) applicable to participating securities and the related participating securities are excluded from the computation of basic income (loss) per share.
Diluted income (loss) per share is calculated using the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period, including restricted stock outstanding. If there is net income during the period, the dilutive impact of common stock equivalents outstanding would also be reflected.

13. Related Party Transactions
Prior to November 20, 2012, CyrusOne Inc., CyrusOne GP, CyrusOne LP and its subsidiaries were operated by CBI. The consolidated financial statements reflect the following transactions with CBI and its affiliated entities, including Cincinnati Bell Telephone (CBT) and Cincinnati Bell Technology Solutions (CBTS).
Revenues—The Company records revenues from CBI under contractual service arrangements. These services include leasing of data center space, power and cooling in certain of our data center facilities, network interface services and office space.
Operating Expenses—The Company records expenses from CBI incurred in relation to network support, services calls, monitoring and management, storage and backup, IT systems support, and connectivity services.
Total revenues were $5.3 million and $5.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Total operating costs and expenses were $0.5 million and $0.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The Company had accounts receivable from CBI of $1.5 million for both March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015. The Company had accounts payable to CBI of $2.7 million and $2.2 million as of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively.
Prior to December 31, 2015, CBI owned various percentages of operating partnership units. At December 31, 2015, CBI owned 9.5% of the outstanding common stock of CyrusOne Inc. CBI owned no operating partnership units at December 31, 2015.
The dividends/distributions payable as of March 31, 2016, reflect the balance due to subsidiaries of CBI related to the dividend and distribution announced on February 23, 2016 of $0.38 per share based on CBI's ownership of common shares of CyrusOne Inc. as of the Record Date of March 25, 2016.

14. Income Taxes
CyrusOne Inc. elected to be taxed as a REIT under the Code, commencing with our taxable year ended December 31, 2013. To remain qualified as a REIT, we are required to distribute at least 90% of our taxable income to our stockholders and meet various other requirements imposed by the Code relating to such matters as operating results, asset holdings, distribution levels and diversity of stock ownership. Provided we continue to qualify for taxation as a REIT, we are generally not subject to corporate level federal income tax on the earnings distributed currently to our shareholders. It is our policy and intent, subject to change, to distribute

23

CyrusOne Inc.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (unaudited)

100% of our taxable income and therefore no provision is required in the accompanying financial statements for federal income taxes with regards to activities of CyrusOne Inc. and its subsidiary pass-through entities.
We have elected to designate two subsidiaries as taxable REIT subsidiaries (each a TRS). A TRS may perform services for our tenants that would otherwise be considered impermissible for REITs. The income generated from these services is taxed at federal and state corporate rates. While CyrusOne Inc. and the operating partnership do not pay federal income taxes, we are still subject to foreign, state, and local income taxes in the locations in which we conduct business. Income tax expense was $0.2 million and $0.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.
For certain entities we calculate deferred tax assets and liabilities for temporary differences in the basis between financial statement and income tax assets and liabilities. Deferred income taxes are recalculated annually at rates then in effect. Valuation allowances are recorded to reduce deferred tax assets to amounts that are more likely than not to be realized. The ultimate realization of the deferred tax assets depends upon our ability to generate future taxable income during the periods in which basis differences and other deductions become deductible and prior to the expiration of the net operating loss carryforwards. Deferred tax assets (net of valuation allowance) and liabilities were accrued, as necessary, for the periods ended March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015. Historically, we have recorded a full valuation allowance on our foreign net deferred tax assets related to our foreign generated net operating losses due to the uncertainty of their realization. In 2013 and 2014, management determined it was necessary to record a full valuation allowance on all of our domestic and foreign net deferred tax assets due to the uncertainty of their realization. Accordingly, at March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the net domestic and foreign deferred tax assets were zero.

15. Guarantors
CyrusOne Inc.
CyrusOne LP and CyrusOne Finance Corp., as “LP Co-issuer” and “Finance Co-issuer,” respectively (together, the Issuers), had $477.6 million aggregate principal amount of 6.375% senior notes outstanding, including bond premium, at March 31, 2016. As of March 31, 2016, the 6.375% senior notes are fully and unconditionally and jointly and severally guaranteed on a senior basis by CyrusOne Inc. (Parent Guarantor), CyrusOne GP (General Partner), and CyrusOne LP’s wholly owned subsidiaries, CyrusOne LLC, CyrusOne TRS Inc., CyrusOne Foreign Holdings LLC, Cervalis Holdings LLC, and Cervalis LLC (such subsidiaries, together the Guarantor Subsidiaries). None of CyrusOne LP's subsidiaries organized outside of the United States (collectively, the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries) guarantee the 6.375% senior notes. Subject to the provisions of the indenture governing the 6.375% senior notes, in certain circumstances, a Guarantor may be released from its guarantee obligation, including:
upon the sale or other disposition (including by way of consolidation or merger) of such Guarantor or of all of the capital stock of such Guarantor such that such Guarantor is no longer a restricted subsidiary under the indenture,
upon the sale or disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Guarantor,
upon the LP Co-issuer designating such Guarantor as an unrestricted subsidiary under the terms of the indenture,
if such Guarantor is no longer a guarantor or other obligor of any other indebtedness of the LP Co-issuer or the Parent Guarantor, and
upon the defeasance or discharge of the 6.375% senior notes in accordance with the terms of the indenture.
The entity structure of each Issuer and guarantor of the 6.375% senior notes is described below.
CyrusOne Inc. – CyrusOne Inc. was formed on July 31, 2012. As of January 23, 2013, CyrusOne Inc. was a wholly-owned subsidiary of CBI.
