Fourth Quarter Overview

Total Savvis revenue for the fourth quarter was $252.7 million, up 4% compared to third quarter 2010 revenue of $241.9 million.  Strong Managed Services growth, data center expansions, improved renewals and churn, and a seasonal increase in network traffic all helped contribute to the improvement.

Adjusted EBITDA was $67.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, up 14% compared to $59.7 million of adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2010.  Growth in fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA was the result of steady improvement in the company's renewals, bookings and installations throughout the preceding three quarters.

Hosting

Managed Services 48% $89.3 $81.5 $67.8

Percentage change 1% 11%
Total Hosting revenue $185.7 $176.7 $154.7
Percentage change 5% 20%

In the fourth quarter, Managed Services revenue reflected continued growth in demand for Savvis' traditional managed services and an increase in traction for its cloud solutions, which represent a growing portion of Managed Services revenue.  Traditional managed services include both utility and virtualized services, while cloud solutions include the Savvis Symphony Open, Dedicated and VPDC products.

Colocation revenue was up both quarterly and annually in the fourth quarter, as the company continued to target and win enterprise clients for its global data centers.  Savvis also continued to reap the benefits of its revamped renewal program, which resulted in a continued reduction in both colocation and overall churn.

Network

(1) Core network includes revenue from Thomson Reuters and from other financial vertical and data center clients, who also purchase bundled network and hosting services.

(2) Sustaining network includes revenue from services that are either in slower growth or declining markets or are not directly tied to the future growth of the company's network and hosting businesses.

The overall Network business showed both quarterly and annual revenue growth in the fourth quarter, due to a seasonal increase in network traffic and a quarterly delay in some expected churn.  As expected, Core Network revenue continued to grow, while the decline in Sustaining Network revenue continued to slow.

Other Highlights

The Financial Vertical represented 28% of total revenue, or $69.7 million, in the fourth quarter of 2010.  Revenue in the quarter was up 4%, compared to the third quarter of 2010, and was up 21%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2009.

During the quarter, Savvis added two new exchanges in Chicago and Slough.  The company also continued its expansion into additional global financial markets, as part of its collaboration with Thomson Reuters.  To date, orders for Thomson Reuters Elektron Hosting solution are being taken in 10 locations.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

Net cash provided by operating activities was $71.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to $57.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2009.  Cash capital expenditures for the fourth quarter of 2010 totaled $43.8 million.

The company's cash position at Dec. 31, 2010, was $120.3 million, compared to $88.0 million at Sept. 30, 2010.  As of Dec. 31, 2010, the long-term debt and capital leases for Savvis (net of current portion) totaled $747.2 million, flat from $747.7 million as of Sept. 30, 2010.

Full Year Highlights

In addition to year-over-year growth in Managed Services, Colocation and Core Network in 2010, the company also saw significant improvement in specific verticals and product lines.  In the financial vertical, 2010 revenue was $252.7 million, up 10% over 2009 revenue of $229.1 million.  For the company's Savvis Symphony line of cloud products, which is a part of its Managed Services offerings, revenue in 2010 was $15.2 million, up 106% over 2009 revenue of $7.4 million.

Savvis closed out the year with the news that it was positioned in the Leaders Quadrant in the Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service and Web Hosting in 2010.  The Gartner Magic Quadrant is widely recognized as one of the most influential market analyses for enterprises seeking to evaluate cloud and hosting vendors.

As part of the company's strategic plan to expand its geographic presence around the world, Savvis acquired Fusepoint for approximately $121 million in cash in June.  Fusepoint is well-positioned in the Canadian hosting market as a leading provider of managed IT and colocation services, with data centers in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal.

In August, Savvis restructured its debt profile and closed on its senior secured credit facilities, which include a $550 million term loan and a $75 million revolving credit facility.  The proceeds were used to fund a tender offer for the company's 3% Convertible Senior Notes due May 2012, and Savvis accepted nearly 99% of the outstanding $345 million for payment.  Proceeds were also used to repay outstanding amounts under the company's existing revolving credit facility and other bank and vendor financing.

Financial Outlook

"The strength in execution we saw throughout 2010, and into the fourth quarter, gave us the confidence to announce our full year 2011 guidance at our investor day in early December 2010," said Greg Freiberg, chief financial officer for Savvis.  "Strong fourth quarter financial results and continued execution of our business model are expected to help position us for success in 2011."

Savvis continues to expect the following for full year 2011:

  • Revenue of $1,030 to $1,060 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $265 to $290 million
  • Total cash capital expenditures of $220 to $240 million
  • Cash interest expense (net) of approximately $65 million

Forward-Looking Statements

This document contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  Actual results may differ materially from Savvis' expectations.  Certain factors that could adversely affect actual results are set forth as risk factors described in Savvis' SEC reports and filings, including its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2009, and subsequent filings.  Those risk factors include, but are not limited to, uncertainties in economic conditions, including conditions that could pressure enterprise IT spending; introduction of, demand for and market acceptance of Savvis' products and services; whether or not Savvis is able to sign additional outsourcing deals; variability in pricing for those products and services; merger and acquisition activity by Savvis customers or other customer activity that affects the level of business done with Savvis; rapid evolution of technology; changes in the operating environment; and changes or proposed changes in, or introduction of new, regulatory schemes or environments that impact Savvis and/or its customers' businesses.  The forward-looking statements contained in this document speak only as of the date of publication, Feb. 8, 2011.  Subsequent events and developments may cause the company's forward-looking statements to change, and the company will not undertake efforts to revise those forward-looking statements to reflect events after this date.

* Non-GAAP Measures

Savvis includes information pertaining to certain non-GAAP measures in conjunction with reporting of its quarterly and year-end financial results.  Adjusted EBITDA represents income from continuing operations before depreciation, amortization and accretion, and non-cash, equity-based compensation and excludes acquisition and integration costs.  We have included information concerning adjusted EBITDA because we believe that in our industry such information is a relevant measurement of a company's operating financial performance and liquidity.  Leveraged free cash flow represents adjusted EBITDA less cash paid acquisition and integration costs, less cash capital expenditures and less cash interest, net.  We have included information concerning leveraged free cash flow because we believe that in our industry such information is a relevant measurement of a company's operating financial performance and liquidity.  We do not provide forward looking guidance for certain financial data, such as income from operations, depreciation, amortization and accretion, non-cash, equity-based compensation, and interest income.  As a result, we are unable to provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures, such as adjusted EBITDA and leveraged free cash flow, for forward looking data, including 2011 full-year guidance. The calculations of adjusted EBITDA and leveraged free cash flow are not specified by United States generally accepted accounting principles.  Our calculations of adjusted EBITDA and leveraged free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures of other companies.

(1) Corporate - Other adjusted EBITDA includes all costs not directly associated with hosting services or network services. Costs not directly associated with hosting services or network services include, but are not limited to, general and administrative costs.
(2) Adjusted EBITDA represents income from continuing operations before depreciation, amortization, accretion and non-cash, equity-based compensation and excludes acquisition and integration costs.  We have included information concerning adjusted EBITDA because we believe that in our industry such information is a relevant measurement of a company's operating financial performance and liquidity.  The calculation of adjusted EBITDA is not specified by United States generally accepted accounting principles.  Our calculation of adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
(3) Leveraged Free Cash Flow represents adjusted EBITDA less cash paid acquisition and integration costs, less cash capital expenditures and less cash interest, net. We have included information concerning leveraged free cash flow because we believe that in our industry such information is a relevant measurement of a company's operating financial performance and liquidity.
