Quarterly Review

Revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was €68.0 million, a 13% increase over the second quarter of 2011 and a 3% increase over the first quarter of 2012. Recurring revenue was €62.9 million, a 12% increase over the second quarter of 2011 and a 1% increase over the first quarter of 2012. Recurring revenue was 92% of total revenue.

Cost of sales for the second quarter increased by 11% to €28.2 million, compared with the second quarter of 2011. Gross profit margin increased to 58.5%, compared with 57.5% in the same quarter of 2011. Sales and marketing costs in the second quarter were €4.7 million, up 2% compared with the same quarter in the previous year. General and administrative costs, excluding depreciation, amortisation, impairments, increase in provision for onerous lease contracts, and share-based payments, were €7.3 million, an increase of 11% compared with the second quarter of 2011. Depreciation, amortisation, and impairments increased by 7%, compared with the previous-year second quarter, to €10.2 million.

Net financing costs for the second quarter of 2012 were €3.9 million, compared with €6.0 million in the second quarter of 2011, primarily as a result of higher interest capitalization because of increased data centre construction.

Net profit was €8.7 million in the second quarter of 2012, up 67% from the second quarter of 2011. Earnings per share in the second quarter of 2012 were €0.13, an increase of 63%, on a weighted average of 68.0 million diluted shares compared to €0.08 on a weighted average of 67.5 million diluted shares in the second quarter of 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2012 was €27.8 million, up 19% year-on-year. Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded to 40.8%, compared with 38.9% in the second quarter of the previous year.

Cash generated from operations, defined as cash generated from operating activities before interest and corporate income tax payments and receipts, was €29.4 million, up 27% year-on-year. Capital Expenditure, including intangible assets, was €42.6 million in the second quarter 2012.

Cash and cash equivalents were €84.5 million at 30 June 2012, down from €142.7 million at year-end 2011. The company’s revolving credit facility was amended during the quarter and remains undrawn.

Equipped space at the end of the second quarter 2012 was 65,300 square metres compared with 61,500 square metres at the end of the second quarter of 2011 and 64,800 square metres at the end of the first quarter of 2012. Revenue generating space was 48,600 square metres at the end of the second quarter 2012, compared to 45,300 square metres at the end of the second quarter of 2011 and 47,500 square metres at the end of the first quarter of 2012. Utilisation rate, the ratio of revenue-generating space to equipped space, was 74%, the same as the second quarter of 2011, and up from 73% in the first quarter of 2012.

Business Outlook

The company today reaffirmed its guidance for 2012:
Revenue     €275 million – €285 million
Adjusted EBITDA €112 million – €120 million
Capital Expenditure (including intangibles) €170 million – €190 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.

Use of Non-IFRS Information

EBITDA is defined as operating profit plus depreciation, amortization and impairment of assets. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted to exclude share-based payments, increase/decrease in provision for onerous lease contracts, IPO transaction costs, and income from sub-leases on unused data centre sites. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue. We present EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin 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 €60 million revolving credit facility and €260 million 9.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2017. However, other companies may present EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin differently than we do. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin 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 from Operating Profit to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is provided in the Notes to Consolidated Income Statement: Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation later in this press release.

Interxion does not provide forward-looking estimates of Operating Profit, Depreciation, Amortization, and Impairments, Share-based Payments, or increase/decrease in provision for onerous lease contracts, IPO transaction costs, abandoned transaction costs, income from sub-leases on unused data centre sites and net insurance compensation benefit, which it uses to reconcile to Adjusted EBITDA. The Company is, therefore, unable to provide reconciling information for Adjusted EBITDA.
