Financial Highlights Revenue increased by 14% to €70.4 million (Q3 2011: €62.0 million) Adjusted EBITDA increased by 15% to €28.7 million (Q3 2011: €25.0 million) Adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 40.8% (Q3 2011: 40.3%) Net profit increased by 24% to €8.6 million (Q3 2011: €6.9 million) Capital expenditure, including intangible assets, was €46.5 million Operating Highlights New data centres opened in Amsterdam and London Equipped Space increased by 4,300 square metres in the third quarter to 69,600 square metres Revenue Generating Space increased by 2,600 square metres in the third quarter to 51,200 square metres Utilisation Rate was 74% at the end of the quarter Announced expansion projects remain on schedule “Interxion again delivered solid financial and operational results and significantly grew both equipped and revenue generating space,” said Interxion Chief Executive Officer, David Ruberg. “Our market strategy that focuses on creating value for our customers by building communities of interest continues to pay off. We saw particular strength from cloud service providers and financial services segments who derive value in their own businesses from the rich, low latency connectivity and robust communities of interest available in our highly reliable data centres.” Quarterly Review Revenue for the third quarter of 2012 was €70.4 million, a 14% increase over the third quarter of 2011 and a 4% increase over the second quarter of 2012. Recurring revenue was €65.1 million, a 12% increase over the third quarter of 2011 and a 4% increase over the second quarter of 2012. Recurring revenue was 92% of total revenue. Cost of sales for the third quarter increased by 13% to €29.4 million, compared with the third quarter of 2011. Gross profit margin increased to 58.3%, compared with 58.1% in the same quarter of 2011.

General and administrative costs1, were €7.2 million, an increase of 6% compared with the third quarter of 2011.

Net financing costs for the third quarter of 2012 were €3.8 million, compared with €5.3 million in the third quarter of 2011, primarily as a result of higher interest capitalization because of increased data centre construction. Net profit was €8.6 million in the third quarter of 2012, up 24% from the third quarter of 2011. Earnings per share in the third quarter of 2012 were €0.12, an increase of 21%, on a weighted average of 68.7 million diluted shares compared to €0.10 on a weighted average of 67.5 million diluted shares in the third quarter of 2011.

Cash and cash equivalents were €55.2 million at 30 September 2012, down from €142.7 million at year-end 2011. The Company's €60.0 million revolving credit facility remains undrawn.

Forward-looking Statements This press release contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from expectations discussed in such forward-looking statements. Factors that might cause such differences include, but are not limited to, the difficulty of reducing operating expenses in the short term, inability to utilise the capacity of newly planned data centres and data centre expansions, significant competition, the cost and supply of electrical power, data centre industry over-capacity, performance under service-level agreements, and other risks described from time to time in Interxion's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Interxion does not assume any obligation to update the forward-looking information contained in this press release. Use of Non-IFRS Information EBITDA is defined as operating profit plus depreciation, amortization and impairment of assets. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted to exclude share-based payments, increase/decrease in provision for onerous lease contracts, IPO transaction costs, and income from sub-leases on unused data centre sites. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue. We present EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin as additional information because we understand that they are measures used by certain investors and because they are used in our financial covenants in our €60 million revolving credit facility and €260 million 9.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2017. However, other companies may present EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin differently than we do. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are not measures of financial performance under IFRS and should not be considered as an alternative to operating profit or as a measure of liquidity or an alternative to net income as indicators of our operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with IFRS. A reconciliation from Operating Profit to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is provided in the Notes to Consolidated Income Statement: Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation later in this press release. Interxion does not provide forward-looking estimates of Operating Profit, Depreciation, Amortisation, and Impairments, Share-based Payments, or increase/decrease in provision for onerous lease contracts, IPO transaction costs, abandoned transaction costs, income from sub-leases on unused data centre sites and net insurance compensation benefit, which it uses to reconcile to Adjusted EBITDA. The Company is, therefore, unable to provide reconciling information for Adjusted EBITDA.
