- Revenue totaled $73.9 million in the third quarter, a decrease of 6% year-over-year and 1% sequentially. Both decreases were attributable to lower IP connectivity revenue and negatively impacted by churn from a small number of large customers.
- Data Center and Network Services revenue totaled $49.8 million in the third quarter, a decrease of 5% year-over-year and 1% sequentially. Both decreases were primarily attributable to lower IP connectivity revenue related to the continued decline in pricing for new and renewing customers, the loss of legacy contracts and churn from one customer. The year-over-year results were also impacted by a decrease in partner colocation revenue offset by an increase in company-controlled colocation revenue.
- Cloud and Hosting Services revenue totaled $24.2 million in the third quarter, a decrease of 7% year-over-year and an increase of 1% sequentially. The year-over year decrease was driven by the continued negative impact of churn from a small number of large customers slightly offset by Agile bare metal server revenue growth. The sequential increase was driven by growth in Agile bare-metal server revenue.
Goodwill Impairment Charge
The company began its annual goodwill impairment test during the third quarter of 2016. Due to the complexity and the effort required to estimate the required fair values of certain reporting units, we recorded an impairment estimate of $78.2 million to adjust goodwill in our Data Center and Networks Services segment to an implied fair value of $1.9 million. We derived the fair value estimate based on preliminary assumptions and analysis that are subject to change. We will record any adjustment to the estimated impairment in the fourth quarter of 2016.
- GAAP net loss was $(91.3) million, or $(1.75) per share, compared with $(14.2) million, or $(0.27) per share, in the third quarter of 2015 and $(10.7) million, or $(0.21) per share, in the second quarter of 2016. The GAAP net loss for third quarter 2016 includes a $78.2 million goodwill impairment charge.
- Normalized net loss was $(7.7) million, or $(0.15) per share, compared with normalized net loss of $(10.0) million, or $(0.19) per share, in the third quarter of 2015, and normalized net loss of $(7.3) million, or $(0.14) per share, in the second quarter of 2016.
Segment Profit and Adjusted EBITDA
- Segment profit totaled $42.4 million in the third quarter, a 5% decrease compared with the third quarter of 2015 and a 1% decrease from the second quarter of 2016. Segment margin was 57.3%, an increase of 30 basis points year-over-year and a decrease of 50 basis points sequentially.
- Data Center and Network Services segment profit totaled $24.7 million in the third quarter, a 4% decrease compared with the third quarter of 2015 and a 4% decrease from the second quarter of 2016. Data Center and Network Services segment margin was 49.7% in the third quarter, up 70 basis points year-over-year and down 140 basis points sequentially. Lower IP connectivity revenue was the main contributor to lower segment profit.
- Cloud and Hosting Services segment profit totaled $17.7 million in the third quarter, a 7% decrease compared with the third quarter of 2015 and a 3% increase from the second quarter of 2016. Cloud and Hosting Services segment margin was 73.0% in the third quarter, down 20 basis points year-over-year and up 120 basis points sequentially. The year-over year decrease in Cloud and Hosting Services revenue resulted in declines in segment profit and segment margin. The sequential increase was driven by revenue growth and continued cost management.
- Adjusted EBITDA totaled $19.8 million in the third quarter, flat compared with the third quarter of 2015 and a 2% decrease from the second quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 26.8% in the third quarter, up 160 basis points year-over-year and down 30 basis points sequentially. The year-over-year increase in adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin was attributable to lower cash operating expense (see attached reconciliation tables) primarily from optimizing our cost structure and improved marketing program efficiencies. Benefits included a decrease in cash-based compensation and a decrease in marketing expenses. Sequentially, lower segment profit weighed on adjusted EBITDA.
Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement
