ATLANTA, GA – (April 25, 2013) Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of intelligent IT Infrastructure services, today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2013.

“We begin 2013 with solid first quarter results reflecting our continued shift to data center services including colocation, hosting and cloud offerings. In the first quarter, we successfully drove sequential and year-over-year growth in our data center services segment while also delivering record data center services segment margin,” said Eric Cooney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Internap. “With compelling new offerings planned for 2013, such as our recent ‘cloudy colo’ announcement, we expect to further differentiate Internap’s data center services and sustain long-term profitable growth for the business.”

First Quarter 2013 Financial Summary

Revenue

  • Revenue totaled $69.7 million compared with $67.0 million in the first quarter of 2012 and $69.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.
  • Data center services revenue improved 11% year-over-year and 2% sequentially to $44.4 million. Both the year-over-year and sequential increases were attributable to increased sales of colocation in company-controlled data centers and favorable growth in hosting and cloud services.
  • IP services revenue totaled $25.3 million, a decrease of 7% compared with the first quarter of 2012 and 3% sequentially, as traffic growth was more than offset by per unit price declines in IP and the loss of legacy contracts.

Net (Loss) Income

  • GAAP net loss was $(1.6) million, or $(0.03) per share, compared with GAAP net income of $0.1 million, or $0.00 per share, in the first quarter of 2012 and $0.0 million, or $0.00 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2012.
  • Normalized net income, which excludes the impact of stock-based compensation expense and items that management considers non-recurring, was $0.2 million, or $0.00 per share, compared with $1.5 million, or $0.03 per share, in the first quarter of 2012. Normalized net income was $2.1 million or $0.04 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Segment Profit and Adjusted EBITDA

  • Segment profit totaled $36.8 million in the first quarter, an increase of 3% year-over-year. Sequentially, segment profit increased 2%. Segment margin1 was 52.8%, a decline of 70 basis points compared with the first quarter of 2012. Segment margin increased 100 basis points compared with the fourth quarter of 2012.
  • Segment profit in data center services was $21.7 million, or 49% of data center services revenue. IP services segment profit was $15.1 million, or 59.6% of IP services revenue. Data center services segment profit increased 15% year-over-year and 7% sequentially. An increasing proportion of higher-margin services, specifically colocation sold in company controlled data centers, hosting and cloud services, benefited data center services segment profit year-over-year and sequentially. Data center services segment margin increased 150 basis points year-over-year and 260 basis points sequentially. IP services segment profit decreased 11% year-over-year and 5% sequentially. Lower IP transit revenue and the loss of legacy contracts drove the year-over-year and sequential decreases in segment profit. IP services segment margin decreased 280 basis points year-over-year and 140 basis points sequentially.
  • Adjusted EBITDA totaled $14.1 million in the first quarter, a 16% increase compared with the first quarter of 2012 and a 5% decrease from the fourth quarter of 2012. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 20.3% in the first quarter of 2013, up 200 basis points year-over-year and down 120 basis points sequentially. The year-over-year increase in Adjusted EBITDA was attributable to increased segment profit in our data center services segment. Sequentially, seasonally higher general and administrative costs outweighed the quarter-over-quarter increase in segment profit.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement

  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $34.6 million at March 31, 2013. Total debt was $161.7 million, net of discount, at the end of the quarter, including $57.1 million in capital lease obligations.
