Revenue

  • Revenue totaled $73.9 million in the third quarter, a decrease of 6% year-over-year and 1% sequentially. Both decreases were attributable to lower IP connectivity revenue and negatively impacted by churn from a small number of large customers.
  • Data Center and Network Services revenue totaled $49.8 million in the third quarter, a decrease of 5% year-over-year and 1% sequentially. Both decreases were primarily attributable to lower IP connectivity revenue related to the continued decline in pricing for new and renewing customers, the loss of legacy contracts and churn from one customer. The year-over-year results were also impacted by a decrease in partner colocation revenue offset by an increase in company-controlled colocation revenue.
  • Cloud and Hosting Services revenue totaled $24.2 million in the third quarter, a decrease of 7% year-over-year and an increase of 1% sequentially. The year-over year decrease was driven by the continued negative impact of churn from a small number of large customers slightly offset by Agile bare metal server revenue growth. The sequential increase was driven by growth in Agile bare-metal server revenue.

Goodwill Impairment Charge

The company began its annual goodwill impairment test during the third quarter of 2016. Due to the complexity and the effort required to estimate the required fair values of certain reporting units, we recorded an impairment estimate of $78.2 million to adjust goodwill in our Data Center and Networks Services segment to an implied fair value of $1.9 million. We derived the fair value estimate based on preliminary assumptions and analysis that are subject to change. We will record any adjustment to the estimated impairment in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Net Loss

  • GAAP net loss was $(91.3) million, or $(1.75) per share, compared with $(14.2) million, or $(0.27) per share, in the third quarter of 2015 and $(10.7) million, or $(0.21) per share, in the second quarter of 2016. The GAAP net loss for third quarter 2016 includes a $78.2 million goodwill impairment charge.
  • Normalized net loss was $(7.7) million, or $(0.15) per share, compared with normalized net loss of $(10.0) million, or $(0.19) per share, in the third quarter of 2015, and normalized net loss of $(7.3) million, or $(0.14) per share, in the second quarter of 2016.

Segment Profit and Adjusted EBITDA

  • Segment profit totaled $42.4 million in the third quarter, a 5% decrease compared with the third quarter of 2015 and a 1% decrease from the second quarter of 2016. Segment margin was 57.3%, an increase of 30 basis points year-over-year and a decrease of 50 basis points sequentially.
  • Data Center and Network Services segment profit totaled $24.7 million in the third quarter, a 4% decrease compared with the third quarter of 2015 and a 4% decrease from the second quarter of 2016. Data Center and Network Services segment margin was 49.7% in the third quarter, up 70 basis points year-over-year and down 140 basis points sequentially. Lower IP connectivity revenue was the main contributor to lower segment profit.
  • Cloud and Hosting Services segment profit totaled $17.7 million in the third quarter, a 7% decrease compared with the third quarter of 2015 and a 3% increase from the second quarter of 2016. Cloud and Hosting Services segment margin was 73.0% in the third quarter, down 20 basis points year-over-year and up 120 basis points sequentially. The year-over year decrease in Cloud and Hosting Services revenue resulted in declines in segment profit and segment margin. The sequential increase was driven by revenue growth and continued cost management.
  • Adjusted EBITDA totaled $19.8 million in the third quarter, flat compared with the third quarter of 2015 and a 2% decrease from the second quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 26.8% in the third quarter, up 160 basis points year-over-year and down 30 basis points sequentially. The year-over-year increase in adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin was attributable to lower cash operating expense (see attached reconciliation tables) primarily from optimizing our cost structure and improved marketing program efficiencies. Benefits included a decrease in cash-based compensation and a decrease in marketing expenses. Sequentially, lower segment profit weighed on adjusted EBITDA.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement

  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $9.6 million at September 30, 2016. Total debt was $375.1 million, net of discount and prepaid costs, at the end of the quarter, including $55.2 million in capital lease obligations.
  • Cash generated from operations for the three months ended September 30, 2016 was $11.5 million. Capital expenditures over the same period were $12.9 million. Free cash flow4 was ($1.3) million and unlevered free cash flow4 was $6.2 million for the third quarter 2016.

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"), Internap has historically provided additional financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP ("non-GAAP"), including adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin, normalized net loss, normalized diluted shares outstanding, segment profit and segment margin, levered free cash flow and cash operating expense. The most directly comparable GAAP equivalent to adjusted EBITDA and normalized net loss is loss from operations and net loss, respectively. The most directly comparable GAAP equivalent to normalized diluted shares outstanding is diluted common shares outstanding.

We define the following non-GAAP measures as follows:

  • Adjusted EBITDA is loss from operations plus depreciation and amortization, loss (gain) on disposals of property and equipment, exit activities, restructuring and impairments, stock-based compensation, strategic alternatives and related costs, organizational realignment costs and acquisition costs.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin is adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues.
  • Normalized net loss is net loss plus exit activities, restructuring and impairments, stock-based compensation, acquisition costs and strategic alternatives and related costs, organizational realignment costs and acquisition costs.
  • Normalized diluted shares outstanding are diluted shares of common stock outstanding used in GAAP net loss per share calculations, excluding the dilutive effect of stock-based compensation using the treasury stock method.
  • Normalized net loss per share is normalized net loss divided by basic and normalized diluted shares outstanding.
  • Segment profit is segment revenues less direct costs of sales and services, exclusive of depreciation and amortization for the segment, as presented in the notes to our consolidated financial statements. Segment profit does not include direct costs of customer support or any depreciation or amortization associated with direct costs.
  • Segment margin is segment profit as a percentage of segment revenues.
  • 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 detail reconciliations of our non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measure in the reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP measures below. 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 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 core 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 exit activities, restructuring and impairment charges, strategic alternatives and related costs and organizational realignment costs are unique costs that we do not expect to recur on a regular basis, 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 core operating results and trends. Investors have indicated that they 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 and net loss per share information by providing normalized net loss and normalized net loss per share, excluding the effect of exit activities, restructuring and impairments, stock-based compensation and acquisition costs in all periods, is useful to investors because it enables additional and more meaningful period-to-period comparisons. We consider normalized diluted shares to be another important indicator of our overall performance because it eliminates the effect of non-cash items.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of liquidity 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.

Our presentation of segment profit and segment margin excludes direct costs of customer support and depreciation and amortization in order to allow investors to see the business through the eyes of management. Management views direct costs of network, sales and services as generally less controllable, external costs and management regularly monitors the margin of revenues in excess of these direct costs. Similarly, we view the costs of customer support to also be an important component of costs of revenues but believe that the costs of customer support to be more within our control and to some degree discretionary as we can adjust those costs by hiring and terminating employees.

Segment margin is an important metric to our investors and analysts, as we have regularly discussed and disclosed the effects of third party vendors' pricing declines and the corresponding effect on our revenues. The presentation of segment margin highlights the impact of the pricing declines and allows investors and analysts to evaluate our revenue generation performance relative to direct costs of network, sales and services. Conversely, we have much greater latitude in controlling the compensation component of costs of revenues, represented by customer support, and we analyze this component separately from the direct external costs.

We also have excluded depreciation and amortization from segment profit and segment 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.

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.
