Equinix, Inc. ( Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today reported quarterly results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures, which are described further below and reconciled to the most comparable GAAP financial measures after the presentation of our GAAP financial statements.
This quarter includes the quarterly results of ancotel GmbH, a data center provider headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany, and Asia Tone Limited, a data center provider formerly headquartered in Hong Kong, both of which were acquired by the Company in July 2012. In addition, due to the Company’s decision to sell 16 International Business Exchange data centers located throughout the United States to an investment group consisting of 365 Main, Crosslink Capital and Housatonic Partners in a transaction valued at approximately $75 million, the financial results derived from these 16 data centers are now excluded from Equinix’s continuing operations and are now reported as discontinued operations. As a result, Equinix has retroactively adjusted its financial results for all applicable prior periods beginning April 30, 2010, the date the Company acquired these assets, to reflect them as discontinued operations as required under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The financial results from these 16 data centers are presented on the last page of the attached financial statements associated with this earnings release.
Revenues from continuing operations were $488.7 million for the third quarter, a 7% increase over the previous quarter and a 20% increase over the same quarter last year. This result included $16.1 million in revenues from the Company’s Asia Tone and ancotel acquisitions for the quarter and excluded $8.8 million of revenues from discontinued operations. Recurring revenues, consisting primarily of colocation, interconnection and managed services were $462.8 million for the third quarter, a 7% increase over the previous quarter and a 19% increase over the same quarter last year. Non-recurring revenues were $25.9 million in the quarter.
