2016-11-28 16:01:00.0

BEIJING, Nov. 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 21Vianet Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:VNET) ("21Vianet" or the "Company"), a leading carrier-neutral internet data center services provider in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter of 2016. The Company will hold a conference call at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time on November 28, 2016. Dial-in details are provided at the end of the release.

Third Quarter 2016 Financial Highlights

  • Net revenues increased to RMB968.0 million (US$145.2 million) from RMB924.1 million in the comparative period in 2015

Mr. Steve Zhang, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, "We are very pleased to report continued growth in our core businesses during the third quarter of 2016. Not only did we add over 2,300 new cabinets in our self-built data centers, including our latest one in Beijing, but we also solidly increased our data center utilization rate to 77.9% despite the new additions. Additionally, our cloud business continues to perform well and is gaining further momentum driven by our existing Microsoft cloud business. Meanwhile, we are thrilled to announce the General Availability of IBM Bluemix Services in China in late October. This partnership continues to deepen as our respective teams further cooperate and target a wider range of cooperation opportunities for emerging cloud businesses going forward. More recently, we signed a strategic agreement with Warburg Pincus to establish a joint venture to create a dedicated vehicle for our digital real estate business. With strong demand for data center space driven by the high growth in internet traffic, we are aiming to build out 80,000 to 100,000 cabinets over the next five to seven years. While the company stays focused on its core retail colocation and cloud services, the JV will help strengthen our IDC competitive advantages through broader product offerings and specialized business solutions. By separating the capital intensive data center infrastructure layer from the Company's asset light business, we are confident that we will lessen our dependence on Capex, improve our free cash flow, capital structure and shareholders' value."

Mr. Terry Wang, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, commented, "Driven by improving growth in our core business, our total revenues in the third quarter of 2016 increased to RMB968.0 million. We are pleased to see that both our revenue and adjusted EBITDA beat our guidance. Our overall number of cabinets reached 26,184 as end of September 2016, 72% of which are self-built cabinets, as we continued structural shift to more self-built data centers. As a result of a strong quarter of cabinet sales, we are glad to report a utilization rate of 77.9% for the third quarter of 2016, improved from 76.2% in the second quarter and 71.8% in the same period last year. Hosting churn rate improved to 0.95% in the third quarter from 1.06% in the second quarter of 2016. Although the pricing environment remained challenging as a result of intensifying competition, we believe that our restructuring effort has put us on track to improve both top line growth as well as margin expansion going forward."

Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results

REVENUES: Net revenues for the third quarter of 2016 increased by 4.8% to RMB968.0 million (US$145.2 million) from RMB924.1 million in the comparative period in 2015, primarily driven by growth in IDC, Cloud and VPN revenues and partially offset by the decline in MNS revenues.

Net revenues from hosting and related services increased by 19.0% to RMB828.1 million (US$124.2 million) in the third quarter of 2016 from RMB695.8 million in the comparative period in 2015, primarily due to an increase in total number of billable cabinets and improved utilization rate, partially offset by lower MRR, or monthly recurring revenue, per cabinet.

Net revenues from MNS were RMB139.9 million (US$21.0 million) in the third quarter of 2016, compared with RMB228.3 million in the comparative period in 2015. The decrease was primarily due to the continued industry-wide decline in bandwidth prices and intensified competition.

GROSS PROFIT: Gross profit for the third quarter of 2016 was RMB186.9 million (US$28.0 million), compared with RMB200.3 million in the comparative period in 2015. Gross margin for the third quarter of 2016 was 19.3%, compared with 21.7% in the comparative period in 2015.

Adjusted gross profit, which excludes share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets derived from acquisitions, was RMB224.6 million (US$33.7million) in the third quarter of 2016, compared with RMB240.5 million in the comparative period in 2015. Adjusted gross margin was 23.2% in the third quarter of 2016, compared with 26.0% in the comparative period in 2015.

OPERATING EXPENSES: Total operating expenses were RMB313.8 million (US$47.1 million) in the third quarter of 2016, compared to RMB263.9 million in the comparative period in 2015. Adjusted operating expenses, which exclude share-based compensation expenses and changes in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable, were RMB293.9 million (US$44.1 million), compared to RMB230.9 million in the comparative period in 2015. As a percentage of net revenues, adjusted operating expenses were 30.4%, compared with 25.0% in the comparative period in 2015.

Sales and marketing expenses were RMB100.1 million (US$15.0 million) in the third quarter of 2016, compared to RMB89.2 million in the comparative period in 2015, due to increased labor cost, which was partially offset by decreased agency fee.

General and administrative expenses were RMB189.8 million (US$28.5 million) in the third quarter of 2016, compared to RMB138.8 million in the comparative period in 2015, due to increased staff cost and bad debt provision.

Research and development expenses were RMB36.1 million (US$5.4 million) in the third quarter of 2016, compared to RMB35.2 million in the comparative period in 2015.

Changes in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable was a gain of RMB12.3 million (US$1.8 million) in the third quarter of 2016, compared with a loss of RMB0.7 million in the comparative period in 2015.

ADJUSTED EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2016 was RMB67.9 million (US$10.2million), compared with RMB122.0 million in the comparative period in 2015. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the third quarter of 2016 was 7% compared with 13.2% in the comparative period in 2015. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2016 excludes share-based compensation expenses of RMB33.4 million (US$5.0 million) and changes in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable which was a gain of RMB12.3 million (US$1.8 million).

NET PROFIT/LOSS: Net loss for the third quarter of 2016 was RMB171.5 million (US$25.7 million), compared with a net loss of RMB57.9 million in the comparative period in 2015.

Adjusted net loss for the third quarter of 2016 was RMB84.1 million (US$12.6 million) compared with an adjusted net profit of RMB15.4 million in the comparative period in 2015. Adjusted net loss in the third quarter of 2016 mainly excludes the changes in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable which was a gain of RMB12.3 million and a one-time loss of RMB29.8 million on debt extinguishment. Adjusted net margin in the third quarter of 2016 was negative 8.7%, compared with a net profit margin of 1.7% in the comparative period in 2015.

LOSS PER SHARE: Diluted loss per ordinary share for the third quarter of 2016 was RMB0.15, which represents the equivalent of RMB0.90 (US$0.13) per American Depositary Share ("ADS"). Each ADS represents six ordinary shares. Adjusted diluted loss per share for the third quarter of 2016 was RMB0.02, which represents the equivalent of RMB0.12 (US$0.02) per ADS. Adjusted diluted loss per share is calculated using adjusted net loss as discussed above divided by the weighted average number of shares.

As of September 30, 2016, the Company had a total of 682.1 million ordinary shares outstanding, or equivalent of 113.7 million ADSs.

BALANCE SHEET: As of September 30, 2016, the Company's cash and cash equivalents and short-term investment were RMB1.68 billion (US$251.5 million).
