REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- July 24, 2013

Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), a provider of global data center services, today
reported quarterly results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. The Company
uses certain non-GAAP financial measures, which are described further below
and reconciled to the most comparable GAAP financial measures after the
presentation of our GAAP financial statements.

Revenues were $525.7 million for the second quarter, a 1% increase over the
previous quarter and a 15% increase over the same quarter last year and
includes a $5.8 million reduction in revenue for the second quarter due to a
change in accounting estimate related to non-recurring installation fees.
Recurring revenues, consisting primarily of colocation, interconnection and
managed services were $502.5 million for the second quarter, a 1% increase
over the previous quarter and a 16% increase over the same quarter last year.
Non-recurring revenues were $23.2 million in the quarter. Churn for the second
quarter was 2.4%, down from 3.7% for the previous quarter and in line with
prior guidance.

Non-recurring installation fees, although generally paid in a lump sum upon
installation, are deferred and recognized ratably over the expected life of
the installation. During the second quarter, the Company reassessed the
estimated period that revenue related to non-recurring installation fees is
recognized due to its determination that its customers were generally
benefitting from their installations longer than originally anticipated. For
example, in North America new customer contracts have generally been
lengthened from one to two years, to three years or more, which the Company
believes extends the overall life of both the installation and the overall
customer relationship. As a result of the Company’s analysis, the estimated
period that revenue related to non-recurring installation fees is recognized
has been lengthened to four years, up from two to three years. This change was
accounted for as a change in accounting estimate on a prospective basis
effective April 1, 2013. The change in the estimated period that revenue
related to non-recurring installation fees is recognized, which has resulted
in less revenue than would have otherwise been recorded, resulted in a $5.8
million reduction in revenue for the second quarter and a total estimated
decrease in non-recurring revenue of $16.0 million for the full year 2013.

“Our strong quarterly results reflect growth in all three regions, with
particular strength in the cloud vertical. We are winning smaller,
interconnection rich deals that enhance our vertical ecosystems while keeping
MRR per cabinet firm through a disciplined approach to pricing and customer
mix,” said Steve Smith, president and CEO of Equinix. “We remain confident in
our long-term strategy and will execute with discipline while balancing top
and bottom line growth.”

Cost of revenues were $267.7 million for the second quarter, a 3% increase
over the previous quarter and a 19% increase over the same quarter last year.
Cost of revenues, excluding depreciation, amortization, accretion and
stock-based compensation of $98.6 million, which we refer to as cash cost of
revenues, were $169.1 million for the second quarter, a 4% increase from the
previous quarter and a 19% increase over the same quarter last year. Gross
margins for the quarter were 49%, down from 50% for the previous quarter and
down from 51% for the same quarter last year. Cash gross margins, defined as
gross profit before depreciation, amortization, accretion and stock-based
compensation, divided by revenues, for the quarter were 68%, down from 69% for
the previous quarter and the same quarter last year.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $148.1 million for the
second quarter, a slight increase over the previous quarter and a 16% increase
over the same quarter last year. Selling, general and administrative expenses,
excluding depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation of $35.7
million, which we refer to as cash selling, general and administrative
expenses, were $112.4 million for the second quarter, a 1% decrease over the
previous quarter and a 15% increase over the same quarter last year.

Interest expense was $61.0 million for the second quarter, a 1% increase from
the previous quarter and a 30% increase over the same quarter last year,
primarily attributed to the $1.5 billion senior notes offering in March 2013,
additional financings such as various capital lease and other financing
obligations to support the Company’s expansion projects and less capitalized
interest expense. The Company recorded an income tax benefit of $10.6 million
for the second quarter and income tax expense of $17.1 million in the same
quarter last year.

In April 2013, a portion of the proceeds from the $1.5 billion senior notes
offering were used to redeem the entire principal amount of the $750.0 million
8.125% senior notes, including $80.9 million paid to settle the “make-whole”
payment to the bondholders, which was effectively the interest that would have
been earned to the March 1, 2014 call date plus the applicable premium. The
Company recorded a loss on debt extinguishment of $93.6 million for the second
quarter, which includes the “make-whole” payment, write-off of unamortized
debt issuance costs and other transaction-related fees.

Net loss attributable to Equinix for the second quarter was $28.7 million.
This represents a basic and diluted net loss per share attributable to Equinix
of $0.58 based on a weighted average share count of 49.4 million for the
second quarter of 2013. This includes the one-time charge to the income
statement of $93.6 million for the loss on debt extinguishment related to the
redemption of the $750.0 million 8.125% senior notes.

Income from continuing operations was $112.2 million for the second quarter, a
3% increase from the previous quarter and a 10% increase over the same quarter
last year. Adjusted EBITDA, defined as income or loss from operations before
depreciation, amortization, accretion, stock-based compensation, restructuring
charges and acquisition costs, for the second quarter was $244.2 million, a
slight increase over the previous quarter and a 12% increase over the same
quarter last year.

“We significantly outperformed our adjusted EBITDA targets this quarter and
our operating profits continue to improve, increasing the level of cash
generated from operations after adjusting for the REIT-related cash costs and
taxes,” said Keith Taylor, CFO of Equinix. “We see a clear path to improving
adjusted EBITDA margins to support our long-term model, and are balancing
growth and profitability as we scale the business.”

Capital expenditures, defined as gross capital expenditures less the net
change in accrued property, plant and equipment in the second quarter, were
$122.9 million, of which $82.7 million was attributed to expansion capital
expenditures and $40.2 million was attributed to ongoing capital expenditures.

The Company generated cash from operating activities of $147.2 million for the
second quarter as compared to $84.2 million in the previous quarter and $194.8
million for the same quarter last year. Cash provided by investing activities
was $537.5 million in the second quarter, primarily attributed to the $836.4
million of restricted cash released for the redemption of the $750.0 million
8.125% senior notes, as compared to cash used in investing activities of
$1,142.5 million in the previous quarter, primarily attributed to the $836.4
million that was placed into a restricted cash account for the redemption of
the $750.0 million 8.125% senior notes, and cash provided by investing
activities of $93.9 million for the same quarter last year. Cash used in
financing activities was $850.0 million for the second quarter, primarily
attributed to the redemption of the $750.0 million 8.125% senior notes, as
compared to cash provided by financing activities of $1,496.8 million,
primarily attributed to the issuance of the $1.5 billion senior notes, and
cash used in financing activities of $264.7 million for the same quarter last
year.

As of June 30, 2013, the Company’s cash, cash equivalents and investments were
$1,216.9 million, as compared to $1,212.1 million as of March 31, 2013.

Business Outlook

For the third quarter of 2013, the Company expects revenues to be in the range
of $538.0 to $542.0 million, which includes an approximate $6.0 million impact
from the change in accounting estimate related to non-recurring installation
fees and negative foreign currency headwinds of approximately $4.0 million.
Cash gross margins are expected to approximate 68%. Cash selling, general and
administrative expenses are expected to range between $126.0 and $130.0
million. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $236.0 and $240.0 million,
which includes $11.0 million in professional fees primarily related to the
REIT conversion. This also includes an approximate $6.0 million impact from
the change in accounting estimate related to non-recurring installation fees,
and negative foreign currency headwinds of $2.0 million. Capital expenditures
are expected to be approximately $180.0 to $200.0 million, comprised of
approximately $50.0 million of ongoing capital expenditures and $130.0 to
$150.0 million of expansion capital expenditures.

For the full year of 2013, total revenues are expected to range between
$2,135.0 million to $2,145.0 million, or an as reported 13% year over year
growth rate. This includes an approximate $16.0 million decrease in revenues
due to the change in accounting estimate related to our non-recurring
installation fees. This is a non-cash change only, the result of a longer
estimated life for our customer installations. Full-year guidance is also
adjusted for $11.0 million of negative foreign currency headwinds, when
compared to the rates used from our prior guidance. On a normalized and
constant currency basis, we expect 2013 revenue growth of approximately 15.5%
compared to the prior year. Total year cash gross margins are expected to
approximate 68%. Cash selling, general and administrative expenses are
expected to range between $465.0 and $475.0 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the
year is expected to range between $985.0 and $990.0 million, which includes an
approximate $16.0 million impact due to the change in accounting estimate
related to our non-recurring installation fees, $6.0 million in incremental
professional fees primarily related to the REIT conversion, and adjusting for
$5.0 million of negative currency headwinds when compared to the rates used
from our prior guidance. Capital expenditures for 2013 are expected to be in
the range of $575.0 to $625.0 million, comprised of approximately $165.0
million of ongoing capital expenditures and $410.0 to $460.0 million for
expansion capital expenditures.

The U.S. dollar exchange rates used for 2013 guidance have been updated to
$1.30 to the Euro, $1.52 to the Pound, S$1.27 to the U.S. dollar and R$2.23 to
the U.S. dollar. Updated global revenue breakdown by currency for the Euro,
Pound, Singapore dollar and Brazilian Real is 14%, 8%, 6% and 4%,
respectively.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Equinix provides all information required in accordance with generally
accepted accounting principles (GAAP), but it believes that evaluating its
ongoing operating results may be difficult if limited to reviewing only GAAP
financial measures. Accordingly, Equinix uses non-GAAP financial measures,
such as adjusted EBITDA, cash cost of revenues, cash gross margins, cash
operating expenses (also known as cash selling, general and administrative
expenses or cash SG&A), adjusted EBITDA margins, free cash flow, adjusted free
cash flow, discretionary free cash flow and adjusted discretionary free cash
flow to evaluate its operations. In presenting these non-GAAP financial
measures, Equinix excludes certain items that it believes are not good
indicators of the Company's current or future operating performance. These
items are depreciation, amortization, accretion of asset retirement
obligations and accrued restructuring charges, stock-based compensation,
restructuring charges, impairment charges and acquisition costs.Legislative
and regulatory requirements encourage use of and emphasis on GAAP financial
metrics and require companies to explain why non-GAAP financial metrics are
relevant to management and investors. Equinix excludes these items in order
for Equinix's lenders, investors, and industry analysts who review and report
on the Company, to better evaluate the Company's operating performance and
cash spending levels relative to its industry sector and competitors.

Equinix excludes depreciation expense as these charges primarily relate to the
initial construction costs of our IBX centers and do not reflect our current
or future cash spending levels to support our business. Our IBX centers are
long-lived assets, and have an economic life greater than 10 years. The
construction costs of our IBX centers do not recur and future capital
expenditures remain minor relative to our initial investment. This is a trend
we expect to continue. In addition, depreciation is also based on the
estimated useful lives of our IBX centers. These estimates could vary from
actual performance of the asset, are based on historic costs incurred to build
out our IBX centers, and are not indicative of current or expected future
capital expenditures. Therefore, Equinix excludes depreciation from its
operating results when evaluating its operations.

In addition, in presenting the non-GAAP financial measures, Equinix excludes
amortization expense related to certain intangible assets, as it represents a
cost that may not recur and is not a good indicator of the Company's current
or future operating performance. Equinix excludes accretion expense, both as
it relates to its asset retirement obligations as well as its accrued
restructuring charges, as these expenses represent costs which Equinix
believes are not meaningful in evaluating the Company's current operations.
Equinix excludes stock-based compensation expense as it primarily represents
expense attributed to equity awards that have no current or future cash
obligations. As such, we, and many investors and analysts, exclude this
stock-based compensation expense when assessing the cash generating
performance of our operations. Equinix excludes restructuring charges from its
non-GAAP financial measures. The restructuring charges relate to the Company's
decision to exit leases for excess space adjacent to several of our IBX
centers, which we did not intend to build out, or our decision to reverse such
restructuring charges or severance charges related to the Switch and Data
acquisition. Equinix also excludes impairment charges related to certain
long-lived assets. The impairment charges are related to expense recognized
whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount
of long-lived assets are not recoverable. Finally, Equinix excludes
acquisition costs from its non-GAAP financial measures. The acquisition costs
relate to costs the Company incurs in connection with business combinations.
Management believes such items as restructuring charges, impairment charges
and acquisition costs are non-core transactions; however, these types of costs
will or may occur in future periods.

Our management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should,
consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a
substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
However, we have presented such non-GAAP financial measures to provide
investors with an additional tool to evaluate our operating results in a
manner that focuses on what management believes to be our core, ongoing
business operations. Management believes that the inclusion of these non-GAAP
financial measures provides consistency and comparability with past reports
and provides a better understanding of the overall performance of the business
and its ability to perform in subsequent periods. Equinix believes that if it
did not provide such non-GAAP financial information, investors would not have
all the necessary data to analyze Equinix effectively.

Investors should note, however, that the non-GAAP financial measures used by
Equinix may not be the same non-GAAP financial measures, and may not be
calculated in the same manner, as that of other companies. In addition,
whenever Equinix uses such non-GAAP financial measures, it provides a
reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most closely applicable
GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP
financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures
to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

Equinix does not provide forward-looking guidance for certain financial data,
such as depreciation, amortization, accretion, stock-based compensation, net
income (loss) from operations, cash generated from operating activities and
cash used in investing activities, and as a result, is not able to provide a
reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures for forward-looking
data. Equinix intends to calculate the various non-GAAP financial measures in
future periods consistent with how they were calculated for the periods
presented within this press release.
