“Interxion showed growth in all key performance metrics during the third quarter. As a result of customer demand, we announced the construction of our seventh data centre in Paris during the third quarter, and since the end of the third quarter we have announced the construction of three major new data centres, Frankfurt 7, London 2, and today, Amsterdam 6,” said Chief Executive Officer David Ruberg. “Despite the economic uncertainty across Europe, we continue to see strong demand trends in our targeted segments, especially cloud computing, digital media, and financial services.”

Quarterly Review

Revenue for the third quarter of 2011 was €62.0 million, a 13% increase over the third quarter of 2010 and a 3% increase from the second quarter of 2011. Recurring revenue was €58.2 million, a 17% increase over the third quarter of 2010 and a 4% increase from the second quarter of 2011. Recurring revenue was 94% of total revenue.

Cost of sales for the third quarter increased by 8% to €26.0 million compared to the third quarter 2010, producing an increased gross profit margin of 58.1% compared to 56.2% in the same quarter of 2010. Sales and marketing costs in the third quarter were €4.2 million, down 3% compared to the prior year quarter. General and administrative costs, excluding depreciation, amortisation, impairments, exceptional general and administrative costs, and share-based payments were €6.8 million, an increase of 24% compared to the prior year quarter and were impacted by public company costs. Depreciation, amortisation, and impairments increased by 16% compared to the prior year quarter to €9.1 million.

Net financing costs for the third quarter of 2011 were €5.3 million, compared to €5.1 million in the third quarter of 2010.

Net profit was €6.9 million in the third quarter of 2011, up 16% from the third quarter of 2010.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2011 was €25.0 million, up 20% year over year. Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded to 40.3% compared to 38.1% in the prior year quarter 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 €23.8 million. Net cash used in investing activities was €4.9 million, reflecting €53.8 million of capital expenditures largely offset by €50.0 million liquidated from short term investments.

Cash and equivalents and short term investments were €189.5 million at 30 September 2011, up from €99.1 million at year end 2010.

Equipped space at the end of the third quarter 2011 was 62,200 square metres compared to 61,500 square metres in the second quarter 2011 and 59,600 square metres in the third quarter 2010. Utilisation rate, the ratio of revenue-generating space to equipped space, was 74%, the same as the second quarter 2011 and up from 71% in the third quarter 2010.

Business Outlook

The company today also reaffirmed its guidance 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 Adjusted EBITDA as additional information because we understand that they are measures used by certain investors and because it is 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 Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure 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 EBITDA and operating profit is provided in the Notes to Consolidated Income Statement: Group Metrics.
