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.
