Recurring revenue was €30.6m in Q4 2015, growing 12% from Q4 2014 and 3% from Q3 2015. Gross profit was €23.8m, up 14% from Q4 2014 and 3% from Q3 2015. Gross margin improved to 77.6% in Q4 2015 from 76.6% in Q4 2014 and was in line with Q3 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA was €9.9m in Q4 2015, improving by 34% from Q4 2014 and by 21% from Q3 2015. This was despite the adverse foreign exchange impact in the quarter amounting to €300k.

Capital expenditure supporting revenue growth was €10.9m in the quarter as euNetworks continues to invest for growth. This contributed to proxy cash flow of €(1.0)m in Q4 2015.

For the full year, recurring revenue was €117.2m, growing 14% from 2014. Gross profit was €90.8m in 2015, up 17% from €77.9m in 2014. Adjusted EBITDA reached €33.8m, up 19% from 2014 despite the c€1.2m adverse impact from foreign exchange for the full year. Capital expenditure was €41.1m in 2015, and supported customer related projects and network development initiatives in line with euNetworks’ strategy. As a result of that investment, proxy cash flow was €(7.3m) in 2015, down from 2014.

“Our sales performance was strong through 2015, with 12% growth overall,” said Brady Rafuse, Chief Executive Officer of euNetworks. “Our operating business continued to perform strongly and we exited the year with lower disconnections and an average churn below the industry average. We also achieved solid growth in our incremental service revenue.”

“For the quarter and full year 2015, our financial performance remained strong, with 12% growth in recurring revenue and 19% growth in Adjusted EBITDA from 2014,” said Rafuse.

“Our capital expenditure was higher in 2015 in line with our continued strategy of investing in our network in support of customers and our organic growth. Following investment in Paris in October and our long haul Wavelengths network in Germany, we recently announced two new long haul fibre routes to Marseille following specific customer requests. Capital expenditure will remain higher in 2016 and there are a number of strategic network investments projects that we will announce in due course. We remain confident about the opportunities ahead and the close relationships we have with our customers will continue to drive our development moving into 2016.”
