Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2012 Financial Summary

Revenue

  • Revenue for the full-year 2012 was $273.6 million compared with $244.6 million in 2011. The increase in annual revenue was primarily due to growth in our data center services segment, which includes revenue attributable to the fourth quarter 2011 acquisition of Voxel. Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $69.7 million, an increase of 11% year-over-year and 2% compared with the third quarter of 2012. Quarterly revenue from data center services increased year-over-year and sequentially. IP services revenue in the quarter decreased year-over-year and was unchanged sequentially. Full-year 2012 and fourth quarter 2012 represent the highest annual and quarterly revenue levels in the history of the company.
  • Data center services revenue for the full-year 2012 increased 25% to $167.3 million. Fourth quarter data center services revenue was $43.7 million, up 24% compared with the fourth quarter of 2011 and 4% over the third quarter of 2012. The year-over-year revenue increase was attributable to organic growth in the data center services segment and to the acquisition of Voxel. The sequential increase was driven by increased sales of colocation in company-controlled data centers and favorable growth in hosting services.
  • IP services revenue for the full-year 2012 decreased 4% to $106.3 million. Fourth quarter IP services revenue was $26.0 million, a decrease of 5% compared with the fourth quarter of 2011 and unchanged from the third quarter of 2012. The year-over-year revenue decrease was driven by a decline in IP pricing for new and renewing customers and the loss of legacy contracts at higher effective prices, partially offset by an increase in overall traffic. The stable sequential performance was a result of higher non-recurring IP revenue, which offset per unit price declines in IP.

Net (Loss) Income

  • GAAP net loss was $(4.3) million, or $(0.09) per share for the full-year 2012 compared with $(1.7) million, or $(0.03) per share in 2011. GAAP net income in the fourth quarter was $0.0, or $0.00 per share.
  • Normalized net income, which excludes the impact of stock-based compensation expense and items that management considers non-recurring, was $3.0 million, or $0.06 per share for the full-year 2012. Normalized net loss for the full-year 2011 was $(1.0) million, or $(0.02) per share. Normalized net income in the fourth quarter was $2.1 million, or $0.04 per share.

Segment Profit and Adjusted EBITDA

  • Total segment profit in 2012 was $142.6 million, an increase of 15% year-over-year. Total segment profit in the fourth quarter increased 10% compared with the fourth quarter 2011 and 5% sequentially to $36.2 million. Annual segment margin1 was 52.1% in 2012, an increase of 130 basis points over 2011. Fourth quarter segment margin was 51.8%, a decline of 60 basis points year-over-year and an increase of 110 basis points compared with the third quarter of 2012.
  • Annual data center services segment profit increased 41% to $76.7 million, the highest annual data center segment profit in the history of the company. Fourth quarter data center services segment profit increased 34% year-over-year and 9% sequentially to $20.3 million, also representing a record quarterly level. Data center services segment profit margin was 45.8% in 2012 and 46.4% in the fourth quarter of 2012, representing year-over year increases of 490 basis points and 350 basis points, respectively. An increasing proportion of higher-margin services, specifically colocation sold in company-controlled data centers and hosting services, benefited data center services segment profit compared with the full-year and fourth quarter of 2011. Sequentially, lower seasonal power costs and increased company-controlled colocation and hosting services revenue drove data center services segment profit and margin higher.
  • IP services segment profit for the full-year 2012 decreased 5% to $66.0 million. Fourth quarter IP services segment profit was $15.9 million, a decrease of 10% compared with the fourth quarter of 2011 and unchanged from the third quarter of 2012. IP services segment profit margin was 62.0% in 2012 and 61.0% in the fourth quarter of 2012, representing year-over year declines of 80 basis points and 350 basis points, respectively. Decreased IP services revenue more than offset lower costs, driving the year-over-year declines in IP services segment profit and margin. Sequentially, flat revenue growth led to stable IP segment profit.
  • Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin represented the highest annual and quarterly levels in the history of the company. Full-year 2012 Adjusted EBITDA increased 20% year-over-year to $51.9 million. Fourth quarter 2012 adjusted EBITDA increased 19% year-over-year and 20% sequentially to $15.0 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 19.0% in 2012 and 21.5% in the fourth quarter of 2012, representing year-over-year increases of 130 basis points and 140 basis points, respectively. Sequentially, fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 320 basis points. The year-over-year and sequential increases in Adjusted EBITDA were attributable to increased segment profit in our data center services segment. The sequential Adjusted EBITDA improvement was also driven by lower cash operating expenses.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement
