ATLANTA, Aug. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Internap Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of high-performance Internet infrastructure including Colocation, Network and Managed Services, and Cloud Services, today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2017.

"Second quarter 2017 represents a turning point for INAP," stated Peter D. Aquino, President and CEO of INAP. "Our top-line initiatives and focus are driving new sales, while we continue to rationalize our portfolio of datacenter assets.  Our new sales team is building momentum, landing certain large deals that can anchor major markets. Adjusted EBITDA margin also continued to expand, hitting a high of 33%, as both our business units' contribution margins crossed above 40%. With today's reporting, we are debuting INAP's new identity as a strong, emerging retail COLO provider that can bundle Cloud and Network connectivity with a redefined data center portfolio in 20 major markets. Our effort to continue to optimize our datacenter portfolio and strive for profitable growth, we believe, will position us well for 2018."

Revenue

  • Revenue totaled $69.6 million in the second quarter, a decrease of 6.3% year-over-year and 3.5% sequentially. However, approximately $1 million of the decline, included both the planned closure of our 75 Broad Street, New York facility representing $500k and other one-time events. Excluding these two events, sequential revenue decline was 2.1% and year over year was 4.9%. The balance of the year-over-year decrease was attributable to the decline in network services in part due to market pricing trends and churn which was lower than previous quarter. The declines were partially offset year over year by growth in Agile bare metal server revenue. 
  • INAP COLO revenue totaled $52.0 million in the second quarter, a decrease of 6.8% year-over-year and 2.4% sequentially. However, approximately $800k of the decline was attributed to the events above. Excluding these events, sequential revenue was down less than 1% and year over year approximately 5.3%.  The balance of the decrease year over was attributable to lower network services in part due to market pricing trends and churn, which was lower than prior quarter.
  • INAP CLOUD revenue totaled $17.6 million in the second quarter, a decrease of 4.8% year-over-year and 6.4% sequentially. The decrease was driven by churn from a small number of large customers and the impact of the planned closure of the New York location. This was partially offset on a year-over-year basis by growth in Agile Bare-Metal server revenue.

Beginning with first quarter 2017 reporting, INAP redefined its segment reporting into two pure play business units:

    • INAP COLO, formerly Data Center and Networking Services, comprised of colo, IP network services, and managed hosting. Managed hosting was previously included in the Cloud and Hosting Services segment; and
    • INAP CLOUD, formerly Cloud and Hosting Services, comprised of AgileCLOUD, iWeb, Ubersmith and Funio.

Net Loss, Normalized Net Loss, Adjusted EBITDA and Business Unit Contribution

  • GAAP net loss was $(19.3) million, or $(0.24) per share, including $4.6 million of costs associated with exit activities, restructuring and impairment and $7.1 million of debt extinguishment and modification expenses, compared with $(10.7) million, or $(0.21) per share in the second quarter of 2016 and $(8.2) million, or $(0.13) per share in the first quarter of 2017, including $7.1 million of costs associated with exit activities, restructuring and impairment in the first quarter of 2017. GAAP net loss margin was -27.7% in the second quarter of 2017.
  • Normalized net loss was $(5.9) million compared with $(5.6) million in the second quarter of 2016 and $(4.1) million in the first quarter of 2017.
  • Adjusted EBITDA totaled $23.1 million in the second quarter, an increase of 14.3% compared with the second quarter of 2016 and 6.9% compared to the first quarter of 2017. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 33.1% in the second quarter, up 600 basis points year-over-year and 320 basis points sequentially. The increases in Adjusted EBITDA were attributable to continued focus on cost control and our initiatives of eliminating unproductive sites and investing in long-term key markets.
  • Business Unit Contribution3 - As part of the realignment of its segments into two pure play business units, INAP COLO and INAP CLOUD, INAP is providing a measure of unit-level profitability called business unit contribution3.
    • INAP COLO business unit contribution totaled $22.0 million in the second quarter, a 10% increase compared with the second quarter of 2016 and a 10.3% increase from the first quarter of 2017. As a percent of revenue, INAP COLO business unit contribution margin was 42.2% in the second quarter, up 640 basis points year-over-year and 480 basis points sequentially. The year-over-year business unit contribution increase reflects improving cost control.  The sequential business unit contribution increase was primarily driven by cost control and our initiatives of eliminating unproductive sites and investing in long-term key markets.
    • INAP CLOUD business unit contribution totaled $8.1 million in the second quarter, a 1.8% increase compared with the second quarter of 2016 and a 14% decrease from the first quarter of 2017. As a percent of revenue, INAP CLOUD business unit contribution margin was 46.0% in the second quarter, up 300 basis points year-over-year and down 410 basis points sequentially. The year-over-year increase reflects improving cost control. The sequential decrease reflects the decline in revenue and the closure of the 75 Broad location.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement

  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $17.5 million at June 30, 2017. Total debt was $486.8 million, net of discount and prepaid costs, at the end of the quarter, including $197.6 million in capital lease obligations. As previously reported, on April 6, 2017 INAP entered into a new Senior Secured Credit Facility, including a $300 million First Lien Term Loan and a $25 million Revolver (which remains undrawn), thereby completing the refinancing of its senior secured debt. The capital lease balance reflects INAP's conversion of certain operating leases to capital leases as part of its strategic growth investments.  $134.7 million of our capital lease obligations are excluded from debt for bank covenant purposes as they were operating leases at the time of the refinancing.
  • Cash generated from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $14.8 million compared to $14.0 million in second quarter 2016 and $7.3 million in first quarter of 2017. Capital expenditures over the same periods were $6.8 million compared to $14.4 million and $6.0 million, respectively. Adjusted EBITDA less CapEx was $16.3 million compared to $5.8 million in second quarter 2016 and $15.6 million in first quarter 2017. Free cash flow4 over the same periods was $8.1 million compared to less than $(1) million and $1.3 million, respectively.  Unlevered free cash flow4 was $15.6 million for the second quarter 2017 compared to $7.4 million in second quarter 2016 and $8.6 million in first quarter 2017.

"In the second quarter of 2017, we continued to drive improvements in operating performance while expanding our operating leverage both through cost reductions and our initiatives to eliminate unproductive sites and invest in long-term key markets," said Robert M. Dennerlein, Chief Financial Officer of INAP. "We are deep into Phases II and III of our data center footprint evaluation and network cost optimization and are closely managing the ROI of our remaining CapEx program, which has enabled us to revise Capex guidance downward for the year. These efforts are designed to improve run rate profitability, increase our asset utilization, and establish a baseline for future growth."

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include statements related to sales, improved profitability, margin expansion, operations improvement, cost reductions, participation in strategic transactions, our strategy to align into pure-play businesses and our expectations for full-year 2017 revenue, Adjusted EBITDA and capital expenditures. Our ability to achieve these forward-looking statements is based on certain assumptions, including our ability to execute on our business strategy, leveraging of multiple routes to market, expanded brand awareness for high-performance Internet infrastructure services and customer churn levels. These assumptions may prove inaccurate in the future. Because such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance or results and involve risks and uncertainties, there are important factors that could cause INAP's actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements, due to a variety of important factors. Such important factors include, without limitation: our ability to execute on our business strategy into a pure-play business and drive growth while reducing costs; our ability to maintain current customers and obtain new ones, whether in a cost-effective manner or at all; the robustness of the IT infrastructure services market; our ability to achieve or sustain profitability; our ability to expand margins and drive higher returns on investment; our ability to sell into new and existing data center space; the actual performance of our IT infrastructure services and improving operations; our ability to correctly forecast capital needs, demand planning and space utilization; our ability to respond successfully to technological change and the resulting competition; the geographic concentration of the company's data centers in certain markets and any adverse developments in local economic conditions or the demand for data center space in these markets; ability to identify any suitable strategic transactions; the availability of services from Internet network service providers or network service providers providing network access loops and local loops on favorable terms, or at all; failure of third party suppliers to deliver their products and services on favorable terms, or at all; failures in our network operations centers, data centers, network access points or computer systems; our ability to provide or improve Internet infrastructure services to our customers; our ability to protect our intellectual property; our substantial amount of indebtedness, our possibility to raise additional capital when needed, on attractive terms, or at all, our ability to service existing debt or maintain compliance with financial and other covenants contained in our credit agreement; our compliance with and changes in complex laws and regulations in the U.S. and internationally; our ability to attract and retain qualified management and other personnel; and volatility in the trading price of INAP common stock.

These risks and other important factors discussed under the caption "Risk Factors" in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), and our other reports filed with the SEC could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements made in this press release.

Given these risks and uncertainties, investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results. All forward-looking statements attributable to INAP or persons acting on its behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the foregoing forward-looking statements.

INTERNAP 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"), this earnings press release includes additional financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP ("non-GAAP"), including Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA less CapEx, normalized net loss, business unit contribution, business unit contribution margin, free cash flow and unlevered free cash flow. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures can be found below.

We define the following non-GAAP measures as follows:

  • Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure and is GAAP net loss plus depreciation and amortization, interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, other expense (income), (gain) loss on disposal of property and equipment, exit activities, restructuring and impairments, stock-based compensation, non-income tax contingency, strategic alternatives and related costs, organizational realignment costs, pre-acquisition costs and claim settlement.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin is Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues.
  • Adjusted EBITDA less CapEx is Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures with Adjusted EBITDA for this non-GAAP measure defined as net cash flow provided by operating activities plus cash paid for interest, cash paid for taxes, cash paid for exit activities and restructuring, cash paid for strategic alternatives and related costs, cash paid for organizational realignment costs, payment of debt lender fees and other working capital changes less capital expenditures.
  • Normalized net loss is net loss plus exit activities, restructuring and impairments, stock-based compensation, non-income tax contingency, strategic alternatives and related costs, organizational realignment costs, pre-acquisition costs, claim settlement and debt extinguishment and modification expenses.
  • Business unit contribution is business unit revenues less direct costs of sales and services, customer support, and sales and marketing, exclusive of depreciation and amortization.
  • Business unit contribution margin is business unit contribution as a percentage of business unit revenue.
  • Free cash flow is net cash flows provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures.
  • Unlevered free cash flow is free cash flow plus cash interest expense.

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 (gain) 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 our current ongoing 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.

We believe that excluding interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes and other expense (income) from non-GAAP financial measures provides supplemental information and an alternative presentation useful to investors' understanding of our core operating results and trends. Investors have indicated that they consider financial measures of our results of operations excluding interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes and other expense (income) as important supplemental information useful to their understanding of our historical results and estimating our future results.

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

We also believe that, in excluding the effects of interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes and other expense (income), 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.

We believe that exit activities, restructuring and impairment charges, non-income tax contingency, strategic alternatives and related costs, organizational realignment costs, pre-acquisition costs, claim settlement costs and debt extinguishment and modification expense are unique costs, 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 our current ongoing operating results and trends. Management believes that investors 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 by providing normalized net loss, excluding the effect of exit activities, restructuring and impairments, stock-based compensation, non-income tax contingency, strategic alternatives and related costs, organizational realignment cost, pre-acquisition costs, claim settlement costs, and debt extinguishment and modification expenses in all periods, is useful to investors because it enables additional and more meaningful period-to-period comparisons.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance 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.

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.

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

Our presentation of business unit contribution and business unit contribution margin excludes depreciation and amortization in order to allow investors to see the business through the eyes of management.

We also have excluded depreciation and amortization from business unit contribution and business unit contribution 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.

Free cash flow and unlevered free cash flow are used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP.  Free cash flow and unlevered free cash flow should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. Free cash flow and unlevered free cash flow reflect an additional way of viewing our liquidity that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our cash flows. Management strongly encourages investors to review our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and to not rely on any single financial measure.

We use free cash flow and unlevered free cash flow, and ratios based on it, to conduct and evaluate our business because, although it is similar to cash flow from operations, we believe it is a useful measure of cash flows since capital expenditures are a necessary component of ongoing operations. In limited circumstances in which proceeds from sales of fixed assets exceed capital expenditures, free cash flow would exceed cash flow from operations. However, since we do not anticipate being a net seller of fixed assets, we expect free cash flow to be less than operating cash flows.

Free cash flow and unlevered free cash flow have limitations due to the fact that they do not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. For example, free cash flow does not incorporate payments made to service our debt or capital lease obligations. Therefore, we believe it is important to view free cash flow as a complement to our entire consolidated statements of cash flows.

Adjusted EBITDA less CapEx is used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP.  Adjusted EBITDA less CapEx should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. Adjusted EBITDA less CapEx reflects an additional way of viewing our liquidity that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our cash flows. Management strongly encourages investors to review our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and to not rely on any single financial measure.

We use Adjusted EBITDA less CapEx, and ratios based on it, to conduct and evaluate our business because, although it is similar to cash flow from operations, we believe it is a useful measure of cash flows since capital expenditures are a necessary component of ongoing operations.

Adjusted EBITDA less CapEx has limitations due to the fact that it does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. Adjusted EBITDA less CapEx does not incorporate payments made to service our debt or capital lease obligations. Therefore, we believe it is important to view Adjusted EBITDA less CapEx as a complement to our entire consolidated statements of cash flows.

Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.  Adjusted EBITDA is presented as we understand certain investors use it as one measure of our historical ability to service debt. Also adjusted EBITDA is used in our debt covenants.

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.
