Shares of Internap (NASDAQ:INAP), a provider of Internet infrastructure services, collapsed on Friday after the company updated its guidance for the full year, cutting its expectations for revenue, adjusted EBITDA, and capital expenditures. At 1:40 Friday afternoon, the stock was down about 18%.
So what: One surefire way to disappoint investors is to slash previously announced guidance, and that's exactly what Internap has done. For the full year, Internap now expects revenue between $320 million and $325 million, down from a previous range of $331 million and $337 million. With 2014 revenue of $335 million, the chance of growth baked into the previous guidance has transformed into a revenue decline.

Your not the only one.Seems like the judicial system in the US accepts backhanders
I thought those nonsense was finished?A few months ago they LOST the case.
Akamai Technologies Inc. lost its appeals court bid to revive a $45.5 million patent-infringement verdict against Limelight Networks Inc.
Limelight doesn’t infringe an Akamai patent for content delivery networks, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington said in an opinion posted on its electronic docket. Akamai said it will ask the full court to consider the case and will appeal to the Supreme Court if necessary.
Its been my observation that this is a favourite for short sellers add to that there is no profit on the horizon despite being a booming sector ie the internet is only going to get bigger requiring more bandwidth and supply and llnw is in a quagmire despite its upside potential. Makes you wonder.
makes you wonder.The only explanation I can think of is that they are still losing a fair amount of cash per qrt.They have to stop the bleed.
well another solid qrt albeit still losing cash.Lets remember GS have a substantial holding in this company.
Compared to its peers ie Akam LVLT,Brightcove,INAP its way undervalued imho.Come on Bob Lento and team make your loyal longs happy investors.Sounded like Bob had a bit of a cold on the c/c call.
jeez $5 to $6 is entirely reasonable for this company.
Moving to the balance sheet, cash and marketable securities were down $6 million sequentially to $75 million as of June 30, 2015. During the quarter, we spent $5.4 million in capital expenditures. DSO as of June 30, 2015, was 65 days versus 47 days at the end of 2014, and 57 days at the end of the first quarter. Although DSO increased due to the timing of payments received from our largest customers, we believe the quality of our receivable balance has improved along with our customer base. We target mid-50s for our DSO.
As of June 30, we had approximately 100 million shares outstanding. Total employee count at the end of the quarter was 563, up 30 from the end of the first quarter, and up 86 from the year-ago quarter. We expect headcount will continue to increase, but at a slower pace, as we expand our business and continue our investment in R&D and sales.
Based on these results, improving trends in our business, and our expectations for the balance of the year, we are updating our guidance as follows: The Company is expecting total revenue to be between $170 million and $174 million, up from our previous guidance of between $164 million and $170 million. Third-quarter revenue is expected to be between $42 million and $44 million.
Limelight delivered a solid second quarter, with strong revenue and margin growth. Our current quarter shows progress is continuing and we believe it is sustainable. During the quarter, we made significant investments to expand the capacity of our network and we continue to aggressively invest in R&D. These investments add to our capabilities and are focused on improving our infrastructure and aimed at introducing new features and functionality.
Employee count is growing and our employee turnover is the lowest it's been in many years. Our reach is expanding, the relationships with our customers are strengthening, and the Company is growing revenue again. We remain confident in our ability to execute, and as a result of the increasing business momentum, we are again raising our revenue guidance, confirming our CapEx guidance, and tightening the range of our non-GAAP loss per share expectations.
Let me share the highlights from the quarter and some reasons for my enthusiasm about our future prospects. For the second quarter of 2015, we reported revenue of $43.8 million, ahead of our plans and ahead of our $40 million to $42 million guidance. This was the highest reported revenue in nine quarters. Excluding the impact from Netflix and currency headwinds, revenue was up a strong 25%. Sequential GAAP revenue was up 3%, after being up 4% sequentially last quarter.
This strength leads me to believe we have turned the corner and are regaining lost market share. We focused on the largest customers because that's where we believe the growth is highest and we are winning. In our revenues, the largest 100 customers are growing at a faster rate than the remainder. At the same time, we've lost some of our smaller customers. Some of this has been due to us sunsetting legacy products.
