    INAP Closed on First Megawatt Deal of the Year as a Catalyst to Expand LA Flagship Facility
  • Strategic Initiatives Review Remains Active

RESTON, Va., Aug. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Internap  Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a leading-edge provider of high-performance data center and cloud solutions with global network connectivity, announced today financial results for the second quarter of 2019.

“INAP’s solid second quarter results include positive sales progress across multiple fronts, including our first megawatt deal of 2019, advanced private cloud and bare metal growth, and the lowest churn rate in years. The other good news is that our backlog is again up over $20 million, with a growing pipeline primarily in North America with upside in Europe. We continue to improve operations and focus on growth opportunities in our INAP Data Center Flagships,” said Peter D. Aquino, President and Chief Executive Officer. “As we previously disclosed, we have retained Moelis and LionTree to assist INAP in evaluating strategic initiatives. Our advisors reached out to the most likely parties, including strategic and financial players. This activity is currently in progress, as we pursue the most actionable opportunity in the near term for the best interests of shareholders.” 

Revenue

2018 results include SingleHop LLC (“SingleHop”) operations beginning March 1, 2018, and are therefore not comparable to prior periods.

  • Total company revenue was $73.1 million in the second quarter of 2019, a decrease sequentially of $0.4 million or 0.6%, and a decrease of $8.8 million or 10.8% year-over-year. The sequential decrease was primarily due to churn from the last remaining customers in the exited data centers. The decrease year-over-year was primarily due to planned data centers exits and churn from several large customers in 2018.

      °  INAP US revenue totaled $57.5 million in the second quarter of 2019, flat sequentially and a decrease of 10.3% year-over-year. The second quarter revenue included churn from the exited data centers offset by a global transfer pricing adjustment between segments. The decrease year-over-year was primarily due to all of the above.

      °  INAP INTL revenue was $15.7 million in the second quarter of 2019, a decrease of 2.3% sequentially and 12.4% year-over-year. The sequential decrease was primarily due to a global transfer pricing adjustment between segments. The decrease year-over-year was primarily due to churn from iWeb legacy products.

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

  • GAAP net loss attributable to INAP shareholders was $(18.6) million, or $(0.78) per share in the second quarter of 2019 compared with $(19.6) million, or $(0.83) per share in the first quarter of 2019. GAAP net loss in second quarter of 2018 was $(14.3) million. GAAP Net Loss Margin was (25.4)% compared to (26.7)% in the first quarter of 2019 and (17.4)% in the second quarter of 2018.
     
  • Normalized net loss2 was $(16.7) million in the second quarter of 2019 compared with $(16.6) million in the first quarter of 2019 and $(10.5) million in the second quarter of 2018.
     
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 totaled $24.4 million in the second quarter of 2019, an increase of 3.4% compared with $23.6 million in the first quarter of 2019, and 15.9% decrease compared with $29.0 million in the second quarter of 2018. The increase sequentially is due to cost savings initiatives and the decline is due to lower revenues.

Business Unit Contribution3 - INAP US and INAP INTL business unit contribution for second quarter of 2019 is as follows:

INAP US, includes Colocation, Cloud, and Network Services. Cloud contains AgileCloud, Managed Hosting, and SingleHop businesses.

  • INAP US business unit contribution was $25.5 million in the second quarter, a 3.5% increase compared to the first quarter of 2019 and a 14.6% decrease from the second quarter of 2018. The sequential increase was primarily due to cost savings initiatives implemented at the beginning of 2019 partially offset by seasonal power increases. The year-over-year decrease was due to planned data centers exits and churn from several large customers in 2018 partially offset by ongoing cost savings initiatives beginning in the first quarter of 2019.
     
  • As a percent of revenue, INAP US business unit contribution margin was at 44.4% in the second quarter of 2019; and up 160 basis points sequentially and down 220 basis points year-over-year.

INAP INTL, includes Colocation, Cloud, and Network Services. Cloud contains AgileCloud, Managed Hosting, Ubersmith, iWeb, and SingleHop.

  • INAP INTL business unit contribution was $5.6 million in the second quarter of 2019, an 11.4% decrease compared with the first quarter of 2019 and 6.6% decrease from the second quarter of 2018. The sequential decrease was due to lower revenue from the global transfer pricing adjustment as well as higher seasonal power and rent related to the new Colt facility. The year-over-year decrease was due to the churn from iWeb legacy products offset by ongoing cost savings initiatives.
     
  • As a percent of revenue, INAP INTL business unit contribution margin was 35.9% in the second quarter of 2019; down 370 basis points sequentially and up 220 basis points year-over-year.

“Second quarter revenue performance of $73 million represents baseline stability as the Company focuses on organic growth in high demand products,” said Jim Keeley, Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer. “Normalized for minimal data center closure revenue still included in first quarter 2019, revenues were essentially flat sequentially, replacing churn and building a larger backlog from a growing pipeline of deals. We are encouraged by this consistency and are supporting our sales teams and channel partners to grow after over two years of reconstituting our product set.”

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement

  • Cash and cash equivalents were $10.5 million at June 30, 2019. Total debt was $687.8 million, net of discount and prepaid costs, at the end of the second quarter of 2019 including $268.4 million in finance lease obligations. The Company has $25.2 million of availability on its revolver, net of $3.7 million of letters of credit.
     
  • Cash generated from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2019 was $11.8 million compared to $2.3 million in the first quarter of 2019, and $14.8 million in the second quarter of 2018. The significant increase in cash generated from operations in the second quarter versus the first quarter was primarily due to working capital timing and a higher non-cash adjustment for leases resulting from rent abatements. Capital expenditures over the same periods were $7.8 million, compared to $8.6 million and $11.1 million, respectively. Adjusted EBITDA less CapEx1 was $16.6 million, compared to $15.0 million in the first quarter of 2019 and $17.9 million in the second quarter of 2018. Free cash flow4 over the same periods was $4.0 million, compared to $(6.4) million and $3.8 million, respectively. Unlevered free cash flow4 was $19.6 million for the second quarter of 2019, compared to $7.9 million in the first quarter of 2019 and $20.1 million in the second quarter of 2018.

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 attributable to INAP shareholders plus depreciation and amortization, interest expense, (benefit) provision for income taxes, other expense (income), loss (gain) 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, 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 income taxes, cash paid for exit activities and restructuring, cash paid for strategic alternatives and related costs, cash paid for organizational realignment costs and other working capital changes less capital expenditures.
     
  • Normalized net loss is GAAP net loss attributable to INAP shareholders plus exit activities, restructuring and impairments, stock-based compensation, non-income tax contingency, strategic alternatives, realignment and related costs and acquisition costs.
     
  • 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 restructuring and impairments, 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, (benefit) provision 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, (benefit) provision 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, (benefit) provision 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, acquisition costs and claim settlement costs 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 costs, acquisition costs and claim settlement costs, 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.

INTERNAP 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 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.

NON-GAAP (ADJUSTED) FINANCIAL MEASURES (Continued)

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.
