Revenue

  • Revenue for the full-year 2012 was $273.6 million compared with $244.6 million in 2011.  The increase in annual revenue was primarily due to growth in our data center services segment, which includes revenue attributable to the fourth quarter 2011 acquisition of Voxel. Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $69.7 million, an increase of 11% year-over-year and 2% compared with the third quarter of 2012. Quarterly revenue from data center services increased year-over-year and sequentially.  IP services revenue in the quarter decreased year-over-year and was unchanged sequentially. Full-year 2012 and fourth quarter 2012 represent the highest annual and quarterly revenue levels in the history of the company.
  • Data center services revenue for the full-year 2012 increased 25% to $167.3 million. Fourth quarter data center services revenue was $43.7 million, up 24% compared with the fourth quarter of 2011 and 4% over the third quarter of 2012.  The year-over-year revenue increase was attributable to organic growth in the data center services segment and to the acquisition of Voxel.  The sequential increase was driven by increased sales of colocation in company-controlled data centers and favorable growth in hosting services.
  • IP services revenue for the full-year 2012 decreased 4% to $106.3 million. Fourth quarter IP services revenue was $26.0 million, a decrease of 5% compared with the fourth quarter of 2011 and unchanged from the third quarter of 2012.  The year-over-year revenue decrease was driven by a decline in IP pricing for new and renewing customers and the loss of legacy contracts at higher effective prices, partially offset by an increase in overall traffic. The stable sequential performance was a result of higher non-recurring IP revenue, which offset per unit price declines in IP. 

Net (Loss) Income

  • GAAP net loss was $(4.3) million, or $(0.09) per share for the full-year 2012 compared with $(1.7) million, or $(0.03) per share in 2011.  GAAP net income in the fourth quarter was $0.0, or $0.00 per share. 
  • Normalized net income, which excludes the impact of stock-based compensation expense and items that management considers non-recurring, was $3.0 million, or $0.06 per share for the full-year 2012.  Normalized net loss for the full-year 2011 was $(1.0) million, or $(0.02) per share.  Normalized net income in the fourth quarter was $2.1 million, or $0.04 per share. 

Segment Profit and Adjusted EBITDA

  • Total segment profit in 2012 was $142.6 million, an increase of 15% year-over-year.  Total segment profit in the fourth quarter increased 10% compared with the fourth quarter 2011 and 5% sequentially to $36.2 million. Annual segment margin1 was 52.1% in 2012, an increase of 130 basis points over 2011.  Fourth quarter segment margin was 51.8%, a decline of 60 basis points year-over-year and an increase of 110 basis points compared with the third quarter of 2012. 
  • Annual data center services segment profit increased 41% to $76.7 million, the highest annual data center segment profit in the history of the company.  Fourth quarter data center services segment profit increased 34% year-over-year and 9% sequentially to $20.3 million, also representing a record quarterly level. Data center services segment profit margin was 45.8% in 2012 and 46.4% in the fourth quarter of 2012, representing year-over year increases of 490 basis points and 350 basis points, respectively. An increasing proportion of higher-margin services, specifically colocation sold in company-controlled data centers and hosting services, benefited data center services segment profit compared with the full-year and fourth quarter of 2011.  Sequentially, lower seasonal power costs and increased company-controlled colocation and hosting services revenue drove data center services segment profit and margin higher.
  • IP services segment profit for the full-year 2012 decreased 5% to $66.0 million.  Fourth quarter IP services segment profit was $15.9 million, a decrease of 10% compared with the fourth quarter of 2011 and unchanged from the third quarter of 2012.  IP services segment profit margin was 62.0% in 2012 and 61.0% in the fourth quarter of 2012, representing year-over year declines of 80 basis points and 350 basis points, respectively. Decreased IP services revenue more than offset lower costs, driving the year-over-year declines in IP services segment profit and margin. Sequentially, flat revenue growth led to stable IP segment profit.
  • Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin represented the highest annual and quarterly levels in the history of the company. Full-year 2012 Adjusted EBITDA increased 20% year-over-year to $51.9 million. Fourth quarter 2012 adjusted EBITDA increased 19% year-over-year and 20% sequentially to $15.0 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 19.0% in 2012 and 21.5% in the fourth quarter of 2012, representing year-over-year increases of 130 basis points and 140 basis points, respectively. Sequentially, fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 320 basis points. The year-over-year and sequential increases in Adjusted EBITDA were attributable to increased segment profit in our data center services segment. The sequential Adjusted EBITDA improvement was also driven by lower cash operating expenses. 

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement

  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $28.6 million at December 31, 2012. Total debt was $143.9 million, net of discount, at the end of the quarter, including $48.6 million in capital lease obligations.
  • Cash generated from operations for the three and 12 months ended December 31, 2012 were $10.9 million and $43.7 million, respectively.  Capital expenditures over the same periods were $10.3 million and $74.9 million, respectively.

INTERNAP NETWORK SERVICES CORPORATION
NON-GAAP (ADJUSTED) FINANCIAL MEASURES

In addition to providing financial measurements based on accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), Internap has historically provided additional financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP ("non-GAAP"), including adjusted EBITDA, normalized net income (loss), normalized diluted shares outstanding, segment profit and segment margin. The most directly comparable GAAP equivalent to adjusted EBITDA and normalized net income (loss) is loss from operations and net loss, respectively. The most directly comparable GAAP equivalent to normalized diluted shares outstanding is diluted common shares outstanding.

We define non-GAAP measures as follows:

  • Adjusted EBITDA is income (loss) from operations plus depreciation and amortization, gain (loss) on disposals of property and equipment, exit activities, restructuring and impairments and stock-based compensation.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin is adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues.
  • Normalized net income (loss) is net income (loss) plus exit activities, restructuring and impairments and stock-based compensation.
  • Normalized diluted shares outstanding are diluted shares of common stock outstanding used in GAAP net loss per share calculations, excluding the dilutive effect of stock-based compensation using the treasury stock method.
  • Normalized net income (loss) per share is normalized net income (loss) divided by basic and normalized diluted shares outstanding.
  • Segment profit is segment revenues less direct costs of network, sales and services, exclusive of depreciation and amortization for the segment, as presented in the notes to our consolidated financial statements. Segment profit does not include direct costs of customer support, direct costs of amortization of acquired technologies or any other depreciation or amortization associated with direct costs.
  • Segment margin is segment profit as a percentage of segment revenues.

We detail reconciliations of our non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measure in the reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP measures below. We believe that presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors regarding our results of operations.

We believe that excluding depreciation and amortization and loss on disposals of property and equipment, as well as impairments and restructuring, to calculate adjusted EBITDA provides supplemental information and an alternative presentation that is useful to investors' understanding of Internap's core operating results and trends. Not only are depreciation and amortization expenses based on historical costs of assets that may have little bearing on present or future replacement costs, but also they are based on management estimates of remaining useful lives. Loss on disposals of property and equipment is also based on historical costs of assets that may have little bearing on replacement costs. Impairments and restructuring expenses primarily reflect goodwill impairments and subsequent plan adjustments in sublease income assumptions for certain properties included in our previously disclosed restructuring plans.


INTERNAP NETWORK SERVICES CORPORATION
NON-GAAP (ADJUSTED) FINANCIAL MEASURES (Continued)

Internap believes that impairment and restructuring charges are unique costs that we do not expect to recur on a regular basis, and consequently, we do not consider these charges as a normal component of expenses related to current and ongoing operations.

Similarly, we believe that excluding the effects of stock-based compensation from non-GAAP financial measures provides supplemental information and an alternative presentation useful to investors' understanding of Internap's core operating results and trends. Investors have indicated that they consider financial measures of our results of operations excluding stock-based compensation as important supplemental information useful to their understanding of our historical results and estimating our future results.

We also believe that, in excluding the effects of stock-based compensation, our non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with transparency into what management uses to measure and forecast our results of operations, to compare on a consistent basis our results of operations for the current period to that of prior periods and to compare our results of operations on a more consistent basis against that of other companies, in making financial and operating decisions and to establish certain management compensation.

Stock-based compensation is an important part of total compensation, especially from the perspective of employees. We believe, however, that supplementing GAAP net loss and net loss per share information by providing normalized net income (loss) and normalized net income (loss) per share, excluding the effect of impairments, restructuring and stock-based compensation in all periods, is useful to investors because it enables additional and more meaningful period-to-period comparisons. We consider normalized diluted shares to be another important indicator of our overall performance because it eliminates the effect of non-cash items.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of liquidity calculated in accordance with GAAP, and should be viewed as a supplement to — not a substitute for — our results of operations presented on the basis of GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA does not purport to represent cash flow provided by operating activities as defined by GAAP. Our statements of cash flows present our cash flow activity in accordance with GAAP. Furthermore, adjusted EBITDA is not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies.

We believe adjusted EBITDA is used by and is useful to investors and other users of our financial statements in evaluating our operating performance because it provides them with an additional tool to compare business performance across companies and across periods. We believe that:


  • EBITDA is widely used by investors to measure a company's operating performance without regard to items such as interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, which can vary substantially from company-to-company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired; and
  • investors commonly adjust EBITDA information to eliminate the effect of disposals of property and equipment, impairments, restructuring and stock-based compensation which vary widely from company-to-company and impair comparability.

INTERNAP NETWORK SERVICES CORPORATION
NON-GAAP (ADJUSTED) FINANCIAL MEASURES (Continued)

Our management uses adjusted EBITDA:

  • as a measure of operating performance to assist in comparing performance from period-to-period on a consistent basis;
  • as a measure for planning and forecasting overall expectations and for evaluating actual results against such expectations; and
  • in communications with the board of directors, analysts and investors concerning our financial performance.

Our presentation of segment profit and segment margin excludes direct costs of customer support, depreciation and amortization in order to allow investors to see the business through the eyes of management. Management views direct costs of network, sales and services as generally less controllable, external costs and management regularly monitors the margin of revenues in excess of these direct costs. Similarly, we view the costs of customer support to also be an important component of costs of revenues but believe that the costs of customer support to be more within our control and to some degree discretionary as we can adjust those costs by hiring and terminating employees.

Segment margin is an important metric to our investors and analysts, as we have regularly discussed and disclosed the effects of third party vendors' pricing declines and the corresponding effect on our revenues. The presentation of segment margin highlights the impact of the pricing declines and allows investors and analysts to evaluate our revenue generation performance relative to direct costs of network, sales and services. Conversely, we have much greater latitude in controlling the compensation component of costs of revenues, represented by customer support, and we analyze this component separately from the direct external costs.

We also have excluded depreciation and amortization from segment profit and segment margin because, as noted above, they are based on estimated useful lives of tangible and intangible assets. Further, depreciation and amortization are based on historical costs incurred to build out our deployed network and the historical costs of these assets may not be indicative of current or future capital expenditures.

Although we believe, for the foregoing reasons, that our presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplemental information to investors regarding our results of operations, our non-GAAP financial measures should only be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, any measure of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Use of non-GAAP financial measures is subject to inherent limitations because they do not include all the expenses that must be included under GAAP and because they involve the exercise of judgment of which charges should properly be excluded from the non-GAAP financial measure. Management accounts for these limitations by not relying exclusively on non-GAAP financial measures, but only using such information to supplement GAAP financial measures. Our non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same non-GAAP measures, and may not be calculated in the same manner, as those used by other companies.
