Highlight of Business Operations:

EMEA Revenues. Our revenues from the U.K., the largest revenue contributor in the EMEA region for the period, represented approximately 38% of the regional revenues during the three months ended June 30, 2012. During the three months ended June 30, 2011, our revenues from Germany and the U.K., the largest revenue contributors in the EMEA region for the period, each represented approximately 34% of the regional revenues. Our EMEA revenue growth was due to revenues from our recently-opened IBX data center expansion in the Frankfurt metro area and an increase in orders from both our existing customers and new customers during the period as reflected in the growth in our customer count and utilization rate, as discussed above, in both our new and existing IBX data centers. During the three months ended June 30, 2012, the U.S. dollar was generally stronger relative to the British pound and Euro than during the three months ended June 30, 2011, resulting in approximately $8.6 million of unfavorable foreign currency impact to our EMEA revenues during the three months ended June 30, 2012 when compared to average exchange rates of the three months ended June 30, 2011. We expect that our EMEA revenues will continue to grow in future periods as a result of the ancotel acquisition, continued growth in recently-opened IBX data centers or IBX data center expansions and additional expansions currently taking place in the Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, Paris and Zurich metro areas, which are

EMEA Cost of Revenues. EMEA cost of revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 included $16.4 million and $16.5 million, respectively, of depreciation expense. Excluding depreciation expense, our EMEA cost of revenues did not materially change. During the three months ended June 30, 2012, the U.S. dollar was generally stronger relative to the British pound and Euro than during the three months ended June 30, 2011, resulting in approximately $4.9 million of favorable foreign currency impact to our EMEA cost of revenues during the three months ended June 30, 2012 when compared to average exchange rates of the three months ended June 30, 2011. On a constant currency

EMEA Revenues. Our revenues from the U.K., the largest revenue contributor in the EMEA region for the period, represented approximately 39% of the regional revenues during the six months ended June 30, 2012. During the six months ended June 30, 2011, our revenues from Germany and the U.K., the largest revenue contributors in the EMEA region for the period, each represented approximately 34% of the regional revenues. Our EMEA revenue growth was due to (i) approximately $2.9 million of revenue from our recently-opened IBX data center expansion in the Frankfurt metro area and (ii) an increase in orders from both our existing customers and new customers during the period as reflected in the growth in our customer count and utilization rate, as discussed above, in both our new and existing IBX data centers. During the six months ended June 30, 2012, the U.S. dollar was generally stronger relative to the British pound and Euro than during the six months ended June 30, 2011, resulting in approximately $11.5 million of unfavorable foreign currency impact to our EMEA revenues during the six months ended June 30, 2012 when compared to average exchange rates of the six months ended June 30, 2011. We expect that our EMEA revenues will continue to grow in future periods as a result of the ancotel acquisition, continued growth in recently-opened IBX data centers or IBX data center expansions and additional expansions currently taking place in the Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, Paris and Zurich metro areas, which are expected to open during the remainder of 2012 and the first half of 2013. Our estimates of future revenue growth take account of known or anticipated changes in recurring revenues attributed to customer bookings, customer churn or changes or amendments to customers’ contracts.

Americas Cost of Revenues. Our Americas cost of revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 included $102.2 million and $93.5 million, respectively, of depreciation expense. Growth in depreciation expense was primarily due to our IBX center expansion activity. Excluding depreciation expense, the increase in our Americas cost of revenues was primarily due to (i) $9.4 million of incremental cost of revenues from the impact of the ALOG acquisition, (ii) $3.3 million of higher compensation costs, including general salaries, bonuses, stock-based compensation cost and headcount growth (855 Americas cost of revenues employees as of June 30, 2012 versus 765 as of June 30, 2011) and (iii) $3.0 million of higher utility costs. We expect Americas cost of revenues to increase as we continue to grow our business.

Investing Activities. The net cash provided by investing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was primarily due to $791.8 million of maturities and sales of investments and $79.4 million of release of restricted cash primarily related to payments made in connection with the Paris 4 IBX financing, partially offset by $342.0 million of capital expenditures as a result of expansion activity and $165.8 million of purchases of investments. The net cash used in investing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was primarily due to $364.0 million of capital expenditures as a result of expansion activity and $95.9 million of cash deposited into a restricted cash account as collateral for the developer of the Paris 4 IBX during the construction period. During 2012, we expect that our IBX expansion construction
