Company Files Proxy to Approve Issuance of Additional Common Stock
Mountain View, CA – June 12, 2002 — Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the leading provider of core Internet exchange services, today announced that the company has retired an additional $10 million of its 13% Senior Notes due in 2007. In addition, the company announced the filing of a proxy statement calling for a special stockholders’ meeting to approve the potential issuance of up to 15 million shares of Common Stock in exchange for the retirement of additional Senior Notes. The total number of common stock shares outstanding is currently 96.9 million shares.
“As stated on our last quarterly earnings call, we continue to aggressively pursue opportunities to take debt out of the business,” said Peter Van Camp, chairman and CEO of Equinix. “The ability to issue additional shares of our Common Stock will give us greater flexibility and options to de-leverage the company. While we do not expect to transact any additional debt for equity exchanges in the near term at the current stock trading level, the availability of additional authorized shares will enable us to take advantage of favorable debt for equity exchange opportunities as market conditions improve.”
In total, the company has retired $52 million of its Senior Notes at significant discounts, including the $42 million in debt exchanges previously announced in the first half of 2002. Since October of 2001, the company has reduced its total debt outstanding by $97 million. This is comprised of the retirement of $52 million in Senior Notes, together with the $45 million repayment on the company’s senior credit facility in October of 2001. In the aggregate, this reduces the company’s annual interest expense by nearly $10 million and reduces the company’s total debt obligations, including principal and interest over the term of the debt, by approximately $150 million.
