ATLANTA, GA – February 20, 2014 – Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of high-performance Internet infrastructure services, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2013.

“Fourth quarter of 2013 was an exciting and impactful quarter for the company as we accelerated our transformation to an industry leading Internet infrastructure services provider with the successful completion of the iWeb acquisition on November 26, 2013. The continued execution of our strategy is reflected in record revenue, segment profit, and adjusted EBITDA, both quarterly and full-year. Our high-performance, hybrid infrastructure, delivered across a global network of data centers provides a compelling basis for competitive differentiation to drive these financial results,” said Eric Cooney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Internap. “As we look forward into 2014, we are encouraged by the opportunity for growth both from the iWeb combination and continued solid organic growth from our core colocation, hosting and cloud services. We remain confident that the opportunity for long-term profitable growth and stockholder value creation is significant in the market for flexible, high-performance Internet infrastructure.”

Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2013 Financial Summary

Revenue

  • Revenue for the full-year 2013 was $283.3 million compared with $273.6 million in 2012. The increase in annual revenue was due to growth in our data center services segment, which includes $3.6 million of revenue attributable to the fourth quarter 2013 acquisition of iWeb. Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $74.1 million, an increase of 6% year-over-year and 6% compared with the third quarter of 2013. Quarterly revenue from data center services increased year-over-year and sequentially. IP services revenue in the quarter decreased year-over-year and increased sequentially. We achieved our highest annual and quarterly revenue levels in the history of the company in 2013 and fourth quarter 2013.
  • Data center services revenue for the full-year 2013 increased 11% to $185.2 million. Fourth quarter data center services revenue was $49.7 million, up 14% compared with the fourth quarter of 2012 and 9% over the third quarter of 2013. The year-over-year revenue increase was predominantly attributable to increased sales of colocation in company-controlled data centers, hosting and cloud services. The sequential increase was driven by organic growth in the data center services segment and the acquisition of iWeb, partially offset by decreased sales in our partner data centers.
  • IP services revenue for the full-year 2013 decreased 8% to $98.2 million. Fourth quarter IP services revenue was $24.4 million, a decrease of 6% compared with the fourth quarter of 2012 and an increase of 1% from the third quarter of 2013. The year-over-year revenue decrease was driven by per unit declines in IP and the loss of legacy contracts at higher effective prices, partially offset by an increase in overall traffic. Sequentially, traffic growth and non-recurring revenue offset per unit price declines in IP.

Net Loss

  • GAAP net loss was $(19.8) million, or $(0.39) per share for the full-year 2013 compared with $(4.3) million, or $(0.09) per share in 2012. GAAP net loss in the fourth quarter was $(10.4) million, or $(0.21) per share.
  • Normalized net loss was $(7.5) million, or $(0.15) per share for the full-year 2013. Normalized net income for the full-year 2012 was $3.0 million, or $0.06 per share. Normalized net loss in the fourth quarter was $(4.4) million, or $(0.09) per share.

Segment Profit and Adjusted EBITDA

  • Segment profit in 2013 was $151.3 million, an increase of 6% year-over-year. Segment profit in the fourth quarter increased 12% compared with the fourth quarter 2012 and 10% sequentially to $40.4 million. Annual segment margin was 53.4% in 2013, an increase of 130 basis points over 2012. Fourth quarter segment margin was 54.5%, an increase of 270 basis points year-over-year and 160 basis points compared with the third quarter of 2013. We achieved the highest annual and quarterly segment profit and segment margin levels in the history of the company in 2013 and fourth quarter 2013.
  • Annual data center services segment profit increased 21% to $92.6 million. Fourth quarter data center services segment profit increased 26% year-over-year and 15% sequentially to $25.6 million. Data center services segment profit margin was 50.0% in 2013 and 51.5% in the fourth quarter of 2013, representing year-over year increases of 420 basis points and 510 basis points, respectively. 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 compared with the full-year and fourth quarter of 2013. Sequentially, lower seasonal power costs, increased company-controlled colocation, hosting and cloud services revenue and the acquisition of iWeb drove data center services segment profit and margin higher.
  • IP services segment profit for the full-year 2013 decreased 11% to $58.7 million. Fourth quarter IP services segment profit was $14.8 million, a decrease of 7% compared with the fourth quarter of 2012 and an increase of 2% from the third quarter of 2013. IP services segment profit margin was 59.8% in 2013 and 60.7% in the fourth quarter of 2013, representing year-over year declines of 220 basis points and 30 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, higher IP services revenue led to an increase in IP segment profit.
  • Full-year 2013 adjusted EBITDA increased 12% year-over-year to $58.0 million. Fourth quarter 2013 adjusted EBITDA increased 5% year-over-year and 10% sequentially to $15.7 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 20.5% in 2013 and 21.1% in the fourth quarter of 2013, representing a year-over-year increase of 150 basis points and a year-over-year decrease of 40 basis points, respectively. Sequentially, fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA margin increased 70 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 year-over-year decrease in adjusted EBITDA margin was driven by higher general and administrative expense, which outweighed the year-over-year increase in segment profit. Full-year 2013 and fourth quarter 2013 represent the highest annual and quarterly adjusted EBITDA levels in the history of the company.
