1Fourth quarter 2021 income (loss) from operations and net income (loss) includes a noncash litigation settlement of $35 million.

 

"Switch's strategic growth initiatives continue to gain traction, producing strong double-digit organic revenue growth for 2021," said Thomas Morton, President of Switch. "We are pleased with our strong fourth quarter sales activity and ongoing high level of engagement with top enterprise clients that continue to grow within our PRIME Campus ecosystems."

"Our fourth quarter and full year 2021 results demonstrate the inherent strengths of Switch's business model, generating strong revenue growth, EBITDA margin expansion, and robust sales execution," said Gabe Nacht, CFO of Switch. "Our booked-not-billed backlog and highly active sales pipeline provide good visibility to another year of solid growth in 2022."

Fourth Quarter 2021 Operating Results

Switch reported consolidated fourth quarter 2021 revenue of $161.4 million, increasing 26% compared to the fourth quarter of 2020. Excluding Data Foundry revenue of $12.1 million, Switch fourth quarter revenue totaled $149.3 million, representing 17% organic growth compared to the fourth quarter of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA totaled $85.8 million for Q4 2021, compared to $70.6 million in Q4 2020, reflecting an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 53.2% and year-over-year growth of 22%. Fourth quarter operating results include a $35 million noncash litigation charge which affected both income (loss) from operations and consolidated net income (loss) for the period. As a result of this charge, Switch reported a fourth quarter net loss of $18.5 million, compared to net income of $15.3 million in Q4 2020. Excluding charges related to the settlement and a $4.2 million gain on interest rate swaps, net of tax provision and non-controlling interest, adjusted net income was $4.1 million in the fourth quarter, or $0.03 per diluted share. 

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of December 31, 2021, Switch's net debt was $1.6 billion(1), resulting in a net debt to Q4 2021 annualized Adjusted EBITDA(2) ratio of 4.7x. As of December 31, 2021, Switch had liquidity of $411.4 million, including cash and cash equivalents and availability under its revolver.

________________________________________

(1)

Net debt is calculated as total debt outstanding, including finance lease liabilities, of $1.69 billion, net of cash and cash equivalents of $48.3 million, as of December 31, 2021.

(2)

Annualized Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as fourth quarter 2021 Adjusted EBITDA multiplied by four.

 

Capital Expenditures and Development

Capital expenditures for the fourth quarter totaled $124.0 million, including maintenance capital expenditures of $2.8 million, or 1.8% of total revenue. Growth capital expenditures, excluding land purchases, were $110.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $94.5 million in the same period last year. Capital expenditures for the full year 2021 were $455.7 million, which includes $11.2 million for land purchases and $12.2 million of maintenance capital expenditures.

During the quarter ended December 31, 2021, Switch capital expenditures were primarily incurred as follows: (i) $49.5 million in The Core Campus primarily for continued construction of the first sector at LAS VEGAS 15 and site preparation for LAS VEGAS 14 and 16; (ii) $37.8 million in The Citadel Campus, primarily related to ongoing construction of the TAHOE RENO 2 facility scheduled to open in early 2023; (iii) $18.8 million in The Rock Campus primarily for incremental power and cooling capacity at the AUSTIN 3 facility, and site preparation for the AUSTIN 4 and AUSTIN 5 data centers in Round Rock; and (iv) $17.5 million in The Keep Campus primarily for additional power, cooling, and tenant improvements for the second sector at ATLANTA 1 and construction of the ATLANTA 3 data center, scheduled to open in the second half of 2023.

Dividend

Switch today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.0525 per share of Switch's Class A common stock. The dividend will be payable on March 22, 2022 to all stockholders of record as of the close of business on March 11, 2022. Prior to the payment of this dividend, Switch, Ltd. will make a cash distribution to all holders of record of common units of Switch, Ltd., including Switch, of $0.0525 per common unit.

Future declarations of dividends are subject to the determination and discretion of Switch's Board of Directors based on its consideration of many factors, including Switch's results of operations, financial condition, capital requirements, restrictions in Switch, Ltd.'s debt agreements, and other factors that Switch's Board of Directors deems relevant.

Recent Business Highlights

  • Signed a three-megawatt expansion order with an existing e-commerce customer at The Citadel Campus representing $6 million in incremental annualized revenue.
  • Completed a two-megawatt transaction with an existing cloud software customer at The Core Campus, representing Switch's initial signing at the LAS VEGAS 15 facility. The contract includes expansion options of up to one additional megawatt of capacity.
  • Executed a colocation and network services agreement with an existing Fortune 50 global technology customer, totaling more than $6.5 million of incremental annualized revenue. The agreement will expand the customer's presence at The Core Campus and also migrate significant portions of its telecommunications network to the CORE Cooperative.
  • Completed an expansion order with an existing global logistics customer for additional colocation and network services at The Core Campus and The Keep Campus totaling $5 million of incremental annualized revenue.
  • Signed a five-year renewal and expansion order with a leading semiconductor customer at The Core Campus. Inclusive of incremental colocation and network services, the contract represents approximately $5 million of annualized revenue and $25 million of total contract value.
  • Completed a three-year renewal of existing services with a Fortune 100 SaaS customer at The Core Campus totaling more than $11 million of total contract value.

2022 Guidance

Switch is introducing full year 2022 guidance as follows:

  • Revenue in the range of $660 million to $674 million, reflecting 13% growth at the midpoint.
  • Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $345 million to $357 million, reflecting a margin of 52.6% at the midpoint.
  • Capital expenditures, excluding land purchases, in the range of $510 million to $560 million.

Switch's 2022 guidance reflects management's best assessment of currently available information and forecasts of sales performance, customer installations, and renewal activity for the remainder of 2022. Revenue guidance incorporates the company's signed revenue backlog as of the date of this release, including a $23 million incremental revenue contribution from the backlog as of December 31, 2021. Guidance for Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin reflects the company's current operating budget for 2022, including amounts for variable costs that are dependent on the level of customer power usage, sales activity, and operating revenue throughout the year. Guidance for capital expenditures is based upon the construction projects currently disclosed by management including data centers that are expected to open in 2023-2024 and thus not expected to generate revenue in the current year. Actual capital expenditures are subject to modulation based on customer demand and deployment timelines.

Switch does not provide reconciliations for the non-GAAP financial measures included in the 2022 guidance above because we are unable to provide a meaningful or accurate calculation or estimation of reconciling items. This is due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliations, including net income or loss, depreciation and amortization expense, impairment charges, gains or losses on retirement of debt, gains or losses on swaps, and variations in effective tax rate, which are difficult to predict and estimate and are primarily dependent on future events, but which are excluded from Switch's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Switch's consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), Switch uses Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Funds From Operations, adjusted net income attributable to Switch, Inc., adjusted net income per diluted share, net debt, and net debt to annualized Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP measures, in this press release. In addition, Switch presents revenue and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding Data Foundry, which are also non-GAAP measures. Switch defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) adjusted for interest expense, interest income, income taxes, depreciation and amortization of property and equipment, amortization of customer relationships, and for specific and defined supplemental adjustments to exclude (i) non-cash equity-based compensation expense; (ii) equity in net losses of investments; and (iii) certain other items that Switch believes are not indicative of its core operating performance. Switch defines Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue. Switch defines Adjusted Funds from Operations as net income (loss) adjusted for depreciation and amortization of property and equipment, amortization of customer relationships, noncash equity-based compensation, deferred income tax expense, unrealized loss (gain) on swaps, loss on debt extinguishment, maintenance capital expenditures, and certain other items that Switch believes are not indicative of its core operating performance. Switch defines adjusted net income attributable to Switch, Inc. as net income (loss) adjusted for gain (loss) on swaps and noncash litigation settlement expense, net of noncontrolling interest and income taxes calculated using the specific tax treatment applicable to the adjustments. Switch defines net debt as total debt outstanding, including finance lease liabilities, net of cash and cash equivalents. Switch defines net debt to last quarter annualized Adjusted EBITDA as net debt divided by quarterly Adjusted EBITDA multiplied by four. Switch uses net debt and net debt to last quarter annualized Adjusted EBITDA as measures to evaluate its net debt and leverage position. Switch believes that investors also may find such measures to be helpful in assessing its ability to pursue business opportunities and investments.

The presentation of these financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. These measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness for comparison purposes. In addition, the non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain recurring expenses that have been and will continue to be significant expenses of Switch's business.

Switch believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating its operating results, enhancing the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects, and allowing for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics used by its management in financial and operational-decision making. For more information on Switch's non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures, please see the "Reconciliation of Net (Loss) Income to Adjusted EBITDA", "Reconciliation of Net (Loss) Income to Adjusted Funds From Operations," and the "Reconciliation of Net (Loss) Income Attributable to Switch, Inc. to Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Switch, Inc." tables in this press release.
