Company Announces 19th Consecutive Quarter of Sequential Quarterly Growth in Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA

AMSTERDAM--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Interxion Holding NV (NYSE:INXN - News), a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, announced its results today for the three months ended 30 June 2011.

Highlights

  • Revenue increased by 19% to €60.0 million (Q2 2010: €50.4 million)
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased by 19% to €23.3 million (Q2 2010: €19.6 million)
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 38.9% (Q2 2010: 38.8%)
  • Net profit of €5.2 million (Q2 2010: €4.0 million)
  • Capital Expenditures of €16.2 million during the quarter
  • Reaffirmed full year 2011 guidance

“The second quarter of 2011 was Interxion’s 19th consecutive quarter of sequential quarterly growth in revenue and Adjusted EBITDA,” said Chief Executive Officer David Ruberg. “We saw 19% organic revenue growth and continued growth in Adjusted EBITDA margins. We remain confident in the market opportunity for our services and continue to invest for future growth with expansion projects already underway or completed this year in seven of our 11 countries.”

A listing of the company’s expansion projects is provided as a table at the end of this release.

Quarterly Review

Revenue for the second quarter of 2011 was €60.0 million, a 19% increase over the second quarter of 2010 and a 4% increase from the first quarter of 2011. Recurring revenue was 94% of total revenue.

Cost of sales for the second quarter increased by 15% to €25.5 million, producing an increased gross profit margin of 57.5% compared to 56.0% in the same quarter of 2010. Sales and marketing costs in the second quarter were €4.6 million, up 29% as a result of the company’s continued investment in its market segmentation strategy. General and administrative costs, excluding depreciation, amortisation, impairments, exceptional general and administrative costs, and share-based payments were €6.6 million, an increase of 29% and were impacted by the onset of public company costs. Depreciation, amortisation, and impairments increased by 28% to €9.6 million.

Net financing costs for the second quarter of 2011 were €6.0 million, compared to €4.8 million in the second quarter of 2010 as a result of the €60 million bond tap in November 2010.

Net profit was €5.2 million in the second quarter of 2011, up 32% from the second quarter of 2010.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2011 was €23.3 million, up 19% year over year. Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded to 38.9% as the company’s increased scale provided greater operating leverage.

Cash generated from operations, defined as cash generated from operating activities before interest and corporate income tax payments and receipts, was €23.0 million. Net cash used in investing activities was €108.0 million, reflecting €16.2 million of capital expenditures and €90.0 million in short term investments. As announced on August 3, the company has begun building its seventh data centre (PAR7) in the Paris metropolitan area. The new facility is being built to meet the demands of customers who will benefit from Interxion’s existing connectivity options of more than 70 carriers and the leading Internet exchange in France, France-IX.

Cash and equivalents and short term investments were €232.0 million, up from €99.1 million at year end.

Equipped space at the end of the second quarter 2011 was 61,500 square metres. Utilisation rate, the ratio of revenue-generating space to equipped space, was 74%, up from 73% both sequentially and year over year.

Business Outlook

The company today also reaffirmed its outlook for 2011:

Revenue €239 million - €245 million
Adjusted EBITDA €91 million - €95 million
Capital Expenditures €140 million - €160 million

Forward Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from expectations discussed in such forward-looking statements. Factors that might cause such differences include, but are not limited to, the difficulty of reducing operating expenses in the short term, inability to utilise the capacity of newly planned data centres and data centre expansions, significant competition, the cost and supply of electrical power, data centre industry over-capacity, performance under service level agreements and other risks described from time to time in Interxion's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Interxion does not assume any obligation to update the forward-looking information contained in this press release.

Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA is defined as operating profit plus depreciation, amortisation and impairment of assets. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted to exclude share-based payments and exceptional and non-recurring items, and to include share of profits (losses) of non-group companies. We present EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as additional information because we understand that they are measures used by certain investors and because they are used in our financial covenants in our €50 million revolving credit facility and €260 million 9.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2017. However, other companies may present EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance under IFRS and should not be considered as an alternative to operating profit or as a measure of liquidity or an alternative to net income as indicators of our operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with IFRS.

A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to operating profit is provided in the Notes to Consolidated Income Statement: Group Metrics.
