ATLANTA, GA – (April 24, 2014) Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of high-performance Internet infrastructure services, today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2014.

“We begin 2014 with solid first quarter results highlighted by continued growth in our data center services segment and positive financial and strategic benefits derived from the iWeb acquisition. We also continued to deliver sequential and year-over-year organic increases in our core data center services business,” said Eric Cooney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Internap. “With more than 70% of company revenue derived from the Data center services segment, the first quarter of 2014 presents a materially transformed business. Inspired by 40% year-over-year organic bookings growth in the first quarter, we move forward with confidence in the strategy to deliver profitable growth from our core colocation hosting and cloud services globally.”

First Quarter 2014 Financial Summary
Revenue

  • Revenue totaled $82.0 million in the first quarter, an increase of 18% year-over-year and 11% sequentially. The increase in revenue was due to growth in our data center services segment, which includes $11.4 million of revenue attributable to iWeb Group Inc., which we acquired in November 2013. Revenue from data center services increased both year-over-year and sequentially. Revenue from IP services decreased both year-over-year and sequentially.
  • Data center services revenue totaled $58.3 million in the first quarter, an increase of 31% year-over-year and 17% sequentially. Both increases were attributable to increased sales of colocation in company-controlled data centers, hosting and cloud services and the contribution from iWeb, partially offset by decreased sales in our partner data centers.
  • IP services revenue totaled $23.7 million in the first quarter, a decrease of 6% year-over-year and 3% sequentially. Both decreases were driven by per unit price declines in IP and the loss of legacy contracts at higher effective prices, partially offset by an increase in overall traffic.

Net (Loss) Income

  • GAAP net loss was $(10.7) million, or $(0.21) per share, compared with $(1.6) million, or $(0.03) per share, in the first quarter of 2013 and $(10.5) million, or $(0.21) per share, in the fourth quarter of 2013.
  • Normalized net loss was $(7.3) million, or $(0.14) per share, compared with normalized net income of $0.2 million, or $0.00 per share, in the first quarter of 2013, and normalized net loss of $(4.4) million, or $(0.09) per share, in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Segment Profit and Adjusted EBITDA

  • Segment profit totaled $46.2 million in the first quarter, a 25% increase compared with the first quarter of 2013 and a 14% increase from the fourth quarter of 2013. Segment margin was 56.4%, an increase of 360 basis points year-over-year and 190 basis points sequentially.
  • Data center services segment profit totaled $32.4 million in the first quarter, a 49% increase compared with the first quarter of 2013 and a 27% increase from the fourth quarter of 2013. Data center services segment margin was 55.6% in the first quarter, up 660 basis points year-over-year and 410 basis points sequentially. An increasing proportion of higher-margin services, specifically colocation sold in company-controlled data centers, hosting and cloud services and the contribution from iWeb drove data center services segment profit and margin higher.
  • IP services segment profit totaled $13.8 million in the first quarter, an 8% decrease compared with the first quarter of 2013 and a 7% decrease from the fourth quarter of 2013. IP services segment margin was 58.3% in the first quarter, down 130 basis points year-over-year and 240 basis points sequentially. Lower IP transit revenue and the loss of legacy contracts led to a decrease in IP services segment profit and margin.
  • Adjusted EBITDA totaled $17.8 million in the first quarter, a 26% increase compared with the first quarter of 2013 and a 14% increase from the fourth quarter of 2013. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 21.7% in the first quarter, up 140 basis points year-over-year and 60 basis points sequentially. Both the year-over-year and sequential increases in adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin were attributable to increased segment profit in our data center services segment, including iWeb.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement

  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $25.2 million at March 31, 2014. Total debt was $351.6 million, net of discount, at the end of the quarter, including $61.4 million in capital lease obligations.
