Globix Corporation Reports First Fiscal Quarter 2004 Results

NEW YORK – February 6, 2004

New York – February 6, 2004 – Globix Corporation (OTC: GBXX) today reported financial results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2004, which ended December 31, 2003, citing continued progress in its operations. During the 1st quarter of fiscal 2004, Globix furthered its transformation into a full service application, media and infrastructure services company with the completion of its acquisition of Aptegrity, a privately held managed services provider. Globix also took further steps to reduce its debt by completing the sale of its property at 415 Greenwich Street in New York City during January 2004 for net cash proceeds of approximately $48.5 million. The company intends to use approximately $44 million of the net proceeds to repurchase a portion of its outstanding 11% Senior Notes at par plus accrued interest and the remaining balance will be used for working capital purposes. The company also announced that it had repurchased an additional $7.0 million of its outstanding 11% Senior Notes during the 1st quarter of fiscal 2004.

Revenues for the quarter were $14.4 million, which was $2.1 million, or 12.7% less than the same period in 2003. Additionally, Globix increased its revenue in the first quarter 2004 over the fourth quarter of 2003, as a result of stronger sales. The company also reported that in the first fiscal quarter of 2004 cost of revenues was reduced 13.3% to $4.9 million from the same period in 2003, and that sales, general and administrative costs were reduced 8.0% to $10.9 million compared to the same period in 2003 primarily reflecting the continuing impact of the company’s cost management efforts.
Loss from operations was $22.1 million for the first fiscal quarter of 2004, compared to a loss of $4.8 million for the same period a year earlier. This was due primarily to the $17.3 million non-cash impairment charge on the company’s 415 Greenwich street property. Net loss for the quarter was $23.3 million, or $1.42 per share, based on 16,460,000 common shares outstanding at the end of the quarter.
