Continued strong operational performance drove improvement across the business this quarter as demonstrated by: accelerated revenue growth, higher profitability and increased data center occupancy,” said Eric Cooney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Internap. “Further, we are pleased to see confirmation of our strategic shift to an IT Infrastructure services provider as our company-controlled data center and managed hosting revenue continues to grow at or above market rates. With our on-going data center footprint expansion and the launch of our enterprise cloud services solution, Internap is now unmatched in terms of our IT services platform flexibility and performance.”

Revenue

    Third quarter revenue totaled $62.0 million compared with $60.3 million in the third quarter of 2010 and $60.4 million in the second quarter of 2011. Revenue from Data center services increased year-over-year and sequentially. IP services revenue decreased compared with the third quarter of 2010 and was flat sequentially.

    • Data center services revenue increased 8 percent year-over-year and 5 percent sequentially to $34.1 million. Both the year-over-year and the sequential increases in this segment were driven by increased sales of colocation in company-controlled datacenters and accelerating growth in hosting services.
    • IP services revenue in the third quarter totaled $27.9 million – a decrease of 3 percent year-over-year and flat compared with the second quarter of 2011. Per unit price decreases, partly offset by traffic growth, drove the year-over-year decrease in IP services revenue.

    Net (Loss) Income

    • GAAP net loss was $(1.8) million, or $(0.04) per share, compared with GAAP net loss of $(1.7) million, or $(0.03) per share, in the third quarter of 2010 and $(2.6) million, or $(0.05) per share, in the second quarter of 2011.

      • Segment profit in Data center services totaled $13.6 million, or 40.0 percent of Data center services revenue in the third quarter of 2011. IP services segment profit for the quarter was $17.6 million, or 63.1 percent of IP services revenue. Increased colocation revenue generated at company-controlled data centers and higher managed hosting revenue benefited Data center services segment profit relative to both the third quarter of 2010 and the second quarter of 2011. Data center services segment margin increased 470 basis points year-over-year and 80 basis points sequentially to 40.0 percent. Network efficiency programs and lower ISP vendor costs allowed IP services segment profit to remain flat compared with the third quarter of 2010 and drove a 3 percent improvement sequentially. Lower network costs were the primary contributors to the 190 basis point improvement in IP services segment margins compared with both the third quarter of 2010 and the second quarter of 2011.
      • Third quarter 2011 adjusted EBITDA totaled $11.3 million, a 23 percent increase over the third quarter of 2010 and a 10 percent increase over the second quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 18.2 percent in the third quarter of 2011, up 300 basis points year-over-year and 120 basis points sequentially.
