Q2主要企业新签约订单表现继续维持强劲，万国数据二季度新签约订单大幅升至4.6万平方米，美股四家whole sale IDC企业（DLR、QTS、COR、CONE）新签约订单继续创最近三年新高，显示下游云计算、互联网公司的持续旺盛需求。
The performance of new orders signed by Q2 major enterprises continued to be strong, with GDS Holdings Limited's newly signed orders rising sharply to 46000 square meters in the second quarter, and new orders signed by four whole sale IDC companies (DLR, QTS, COR, CONE) in the United States continued to reach a new high in the last three years, indicating the continued strong demand of downstream cloud computing and Internet companies.

Market demand and benchmark interest rates drive medium-and long-term growth
Demand sideAfter the epidemic, the digitization and cloud transformation of enterprises, the online habits of users basically continued, and the market demand continued to be strong. At the same time, the short-term capital expenditure of North American cloud computing giants faces a cyclical decline, but the disturbance to IDC demand is basically limited.
Market interest rateThe world is embarking on a new cycle of easing, while the comprehensive financing cost of domestic IDC companies (5%-8%) is still significantly higher than that of US stocks (3%-4%).With the long-term downward trend of interest rates in the domestic market and the increase in the recognition of IDC assets by banks and other traditional credit institutions, the financing constraints and high financing costs of domestic IDC enterprises are also expected to continue to improve.
Valuation is relatively sufficient in the short term.
Since the beginning of the year, the global IDC sector has performed well, with US stocks EQIX and DLR up 37% and 33% respectively so far this year. With the policy of superimposing new infrastructure, domestic IDC companies Baoxin Software, Dataport, 21Vianet Group Inc and GDS Holdings Limited have risen more than 50%, and Sinnet has also increased nearly 30%.
At present, EV/EBITDA (2020E), a representative IDC enterprise in the US stock market, has risen from 20,22X at the beginning of the year to around 28X, corresponding to a compound EBITDA growth rate of 80.10%.
