The growth for the quarter was driven by a surge in enterprise demand for data center services, bandwidth and reliable connectivity from all industry verticals.

We continued to accelerate our expansion plans to accommodate customers' growth needs by executing on the build-out of additional data centers as well as broadband network expansion. The rollout of our self-build data centers remains on track with 653 new cabinets added in the third quarter bringing the total of self-built datacenter cabinets to 3,831, or 52.5% of our 7,335 cabinets in total. Not only have we expanded our overall capacity, but we have also been shifting our cabinet mix towards a higher percentage of self-built data centers which have relatively higher-margins than in partnered data centers."

Mr. Shang Hsiao, President and Chief Financial Officer of the Company, commented, "Due to robust customer demand for new cabinets and additional bandwidth capacity, we continue to experience strong revenue growth year-over-year. Through growing leverage in our business model and diligent expense control, we have also been able to grow EBITDA, outpacing revenue growth. As China's internet continues to expand at a rapid pace, we are well positioned to capture this demand while driving financial value for shareholders."
