What’s Driving Equinix’s Adjusted Earnings and Margin?

Equinix’s (EQIX) second-quarter adjusted EBITDA of $604 million rose ~19% on a YoY (year-over-year) basis and surpassed its own guidance range of $579 million–$589 million. Higher revenues and lower integration costs mainly drove the adjusted EBITDA growth. The adjusted EBITDA margin of 47.9% was ahead of the company’s own expectation of 46.3%. However, the EBITDA growth remained flat compared to the second quarter of 2017.
