Forward Looking Statements

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.

Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA is defined as operating profit plus depreciation, amortisation and impairment of assets. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted to exclude share-based payments and exceptional and non-recurring items, and to include share of profits (losses) of non-group companies. We present Adjusted EBITDA as additional information because we believe this measure is used by certain investors in their analysis and because it is used in the financial covenants in our €50 million revolving credit facility and €260 million 9.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2017. However, other companies may present Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under IFRS and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to operating profit, net income or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of our operating performance.

A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to EBITDA and operating profit is provided in the Notes to Consolidated Income Statement: Group Metrics.

Interxion does not provide forward-looking estimates of Operating Profit, Depreciation, amortization, and impairments, Share-based payments, or Exception items, which it uses to reconcile to Adjusted EBITDA. Therefore, the company is unable to provide reconciling information. Interxion intends to calculate Adjusted EBITDA in future periods consistent with how it is calculated for the periods presented within this press release.
