Colocation in Press Releases

MIAMI – (BUSINESS WIRE) – August 11, 2022 – Cyxtera (NASDAQ: CYXT), a global leader in data center colocation and interconnection services, today released financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

“Our Q2 results, including Cyxtera’s best net bookings quarter to date, completed a strong first half of 2022 and highlights the healthy demand for leading-edge infrastructure solutions,” said Nelson Fonseca, Cyxtera’s Chief Executive Officer. “Despite the complex macroeconomic trends impacting our sector, the demand among enterprise and service provider customers has resulted in a strong pipeline and favorable pricing environment as we look at the remainder of the year. This strong momentum validates our strategy to provide easy to consume, cloud-like colocation on a global scale to meet the needs of the modern digital enterprise.”

Q2 2022 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue increased by $8.7 million, or 4.9% year over year, to $184.1 million in the second quarter.
  • Recurring revenue increased by $6.9 million, or 4.1% year over year, to $174.2 million in the second quarter.
  • Core revenue increased by $9.4 million, or 5.9% year over year, to $168.8 million in the second quarter.
  • Net Loss of $48.1 million in the quarter; Transaction Adjusted EBITDA[1] decreased by $2.3 million, or 3.8% year over year, to $60.0 million in the second quarter, principally due to higher revenue partially offset by higher SG&A.

Business Highlights

  • Average monthly Core churn of 0.7% in the second quarter, a decrease of 30 basis points from the prior quarter.
  • Stabilized occupancy of 74.2% at second quarter-end 2022, an increase of 580 basis points from Q2 2021.
  • Leverage improved year over with Q2 2022 net financial leverage of 3.8x, a decrease from 5.6x as of Q2 2021.
  • Cyxtera joined the Russell 2000® Index in Q2 2022.

“Cyxtera’s team once again delivered strong results as we close out the first half of 2022 with solid momentum,” said Carlos Sagasta, Cyxtera’s Chief Financial Officer. “We continue to experience robust demand and solid growth in our pipeline as the fundamentals of the business remain strong. However, due to the cyclical impact of FX volatility and supply chain-related delays impacting our sector and the impact brought on by the timing lag around passing through higher utility rates, we’ve revised our EBITDA guidance for the year.”

2022 Outlook

Cyxtera updated its full-year 2022 guidance for Transaction Adjusted EBITDA and reaffirmed its full-year 2022 guidance for Revenue as well as Maintenance and Expansion Capital Expenditures; details are summarized in the table below.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Forward- looking statements contained in this press release include statements concerning Cyxtera’s estimated financial performance for 2022. Because forward-looking statements are predictions, projections and other statements about future events that are based on current expectations and assumptions, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of Cyxtera’s control. Actual results and conditions (financial or otherwise) may differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results and conditions to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on Cyxtera’s business or future results, including supply chain disruptions; increases in interest rates; fluctuations in energy prices; fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates in the markets in which Cyxtera operates internationally; inflation; prolonged power outages, shortages or capacity constraints; physical and electronic security breaches and cyber-attacks, which could disrupt Cyxtera’s operations; any failure of Cyxtera’s physical infrastructure or negative impact on its ability to provide its services, or damage to customer infrastructure within its data centers; inadequate or inaccurate external and internal information, including budget and planning data, which could lead to inaccurate financial forecasts and inappropriate financial decisions; Cyxtera’s fluctuating operating results; Cyxtera’s ability to maintain its credit ratings; Cyxtera’s government contracts, which are subject to early termination, audits, investigations, sanctions and penalties; Cyxtera’s reliance on third parties to provide internet connectivity to its data centers; the incurrence of goodwill and other intangible asset impairment charges, or impairment charges to Cyxtera’s property and equipment, which could result in a significant reduction to its earnings; Cyxtera’s ability to access external sources of capital on favorable terms or at all, which could limit Cyxtera’s ability to execute its business and growth strategies; the requirements of being a public company, including maintaining adequate internal controls over financial and management systems; Cyxtera’s ability to manage its growth; volatility of the market price of Cyxtera’s Class A common stock; future sales, or the perception of future sales, of Cyxtera Class A common stock by existing securityholders in the public market, which could cause the market price for Cyxtera’s Class A common stock to decline; and Cyxtera’s ability to use its United States federal and state net operating losses to offset future United States federal and applicable state taxable income may be subject to certain limitations that could accelerate or permanently increase taxes owed. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. You should carefully consider the foregoing factors and the “Risk Factors” disclosed in Cyxtera’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) from time to time. There may be additional risks that Cyxtera does not presently know or that it currently believes are immaterial that could also cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements. In addition, forward-looking statements reflect Cyxtera’s expectations, plans or forecasts of future events and views as of the date of this press release. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance upon any such forward-looking statements in this press release. Neither Cyxtera nor any of its affiliates assume any obligation to update this press release, except as required by law.

Statement Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains Transaction Adjusted EBITDA, which is a supplemental measure that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). Transaction Adjusted EBITDA represents the measure of EBITDA disclosed to SVAC in connection with its consideration of the business combination transaction between Starboard Value Acquisition Corp. (“SVAC”) and Cyxtera. Cyxtera defines Transaction Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before the following items: depreciation and amortization, interest and other expenses, net, income tax expense (benefit), equity-based compensation, straight-line rent adjustment, amortization of favorable / unfavorable leasehold interest & asset retirement obligation accretion, stand-up separation & other, restructuring costs & other, and change in fair value of warrant liabilities. As a Non-GAAP financial measure, Transaction Adjusted EBITDA excludes items that are significant in understanding and assessing Cyxtera’s financial results or position. Therefore, this measure should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash flows from operations or other measures of profitability, liquidity or performance under GAAP. You should be aware that Cyxtera’s presentation of this measure may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other companies. You should review Cyxtera’s unaudited financial statements and the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures provided in this release and not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate Cyxtera’s business.

This press release also includes certain projections of non-GAAP financial measures concerning Cyxtera. Due to the high variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts and projections of some of the information excluded from these projected measures, together with some of the excluded information not being ascertainable or accessible, Cyxtera is unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures without unreasonable effort. Consequently, no disclosure of estimated comparable GAAP measures is included and no reconciliation of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures is included.
