ATLANTA, GA – (August 4, 2016) Internap Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of high-performance Internet infrastructure services, today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2016.

“We are pleased with the improvement in adjusted EBITDA margin, driven by improved operational efficiencies as a result of the organizational structure changes made in the first quarter. As we previously communicated, churn from a small number of large customers impacted our revenue performance in the second quarter of 2016. We did see revenue begin to stabilize in the second quarter as the major churn events declined and bookings improved. Given our first half 2016 results, we are updating our full-year 2016 guidance,” said Michael Ruffolo, President and Chief Executive Officer of Internap. “With a return to sequential revenue growth expected in the second half of 2016, we remain confident in our ability to accelerate profitable growth and drive long-term shareholder value.”

Revenue

  • Revenue totaled $74.3 million in the second quarter, a decrease of 8% year-over-year and 2% sequentially. Both decreases were driven by churn from a small number of large customers.
  • Data Center and Network Services revenue totaled $50.5 million in the second quarter, a decrease of 6% year-over-year and 1% sequentially. Both decreases were attributable to lower IP connectivity revenue related to the continued decline in pricing for new and renewing customers and the loss of legacy contracts and a decrease in partner colocation revenue, offset by an increase in company-controlled colocation revenue.
  • Cloud and Hosting Services revenue totaled $23.9 million in the second quarter, a decrease of 11% year-over-year and 5% sequentially. Both decreases were driven by churn from a small number of large customers.

Net Loss

  • GAAP net loss was $(10.7) million, or $(0.21) per share, compared with $(12.5) million, or $(0.24) per share, in the second quarter of 2015 and $(9.6) million, or $(0.19) per share, in the first quarter of 2016.
  • Normalized net loss was $(7.3) million, or $(0.14) per share, compared with normalized net loss of $(10.3) million, or $(0.20) per share, in the second quarter of 2015, and normalized net loss of $(6.1) million, or $(0.12) per share, in the first quarter of 2016.

Segment Profit and Adjusted EBITDA

  • Segment profit totaled $42.9 million in the second quarter, a 10% decrease compared with the second quarter of 2015 and a 4% decrease from the first quarter of 2016. Segment margin was 57.8%, a decrease of 120 basis points year-over-year and 130 basis points sequentially.
  • Data Center and Network Services segment profit totaled $25.8 million in the second quarter, a 6% decrease compared with the second quarter of 2015 and a 3% decrease from the first quarter of 2016. Data Center and Network Services segment margin was 51.1% in the second quarter, down 10 basis points year-over-year and 100 basis points sequentially. Lower IP connectivity revenue and partner colocation revenue offset higher company-controlled colocation revenue and resulted in a decrease in Data Center and Network Services segment profit and segment margin.
  • Cloud and Hosting Services segment profit totaled $17.1 million in the second quarter, a 15% decrease compared with the second quarter of 2015 and a 7% decrease from the first quarter of 2016. Cloud and Hosting Services segment margin was 71.8% in the second quarter, down 270 basis points year-over-year and 140 basis points sequentially. Decreased Cloud and Hosting Services revenue resulted in declines in segment profit and segment margin.
  • Adjusted EBITDA totaled $20.2 million in the second quarter, a 6% increase compared with the second quarter of 2015 and a 2% decrease from the first quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 27.1% in the second quarter, up 330 basis points year-over-year and up 10 basis points sequentially. The year-over-year increase in adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin was attributable to lower cash operating expense4 primarily from optimizing our cost structure and improved marketing program efficiencies. Benefits included a decrease in cash-based compensation, a decrease in marketing costs and the elimination of non-core functions, primarily the result of our business unit realignment. Sequentially, lower segment profit weighed on adjusted EBITDA.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement

  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $13.9 million at June 30, 2016. Total debt was $377.8 million, net of discount and prepaid costs, at the end of the quarter, including $57.7 million in capital lease obligations.
  • Cash generated from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2016 was $14.0 million. Capital expenditures over the same period were $14.4 million.
