Globix Corporation (NASDAQ: GBIX) today announced results for the fiscal third quarter ended June 30, 1999. For the third quarter ended June 30, 1999, revenues increased 65% to a record $9.4 million compared with $5.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 1998. Revenues for the nine months ended June 30, 1999 increased 51% to $22.4 million up from $14.8 million for the nine months ended June 30, 1998.
Revenues from the Internet Segment increased 107% to $3.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 1999 from $1.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 1998. For the nine months ended June 30, 1999 Internet Segment revenues increased 90% to $8.4 million, an increase of $3.9 million when compared to the comparable period ending June 30, 1998. Revenues from the Server Sales and Integration Segment for the three months ended June 30, 1999 increased 48% to $6.0 million from $4.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 1998.

The net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 1999 was $8.8 million or $1.06 per share, as compared to a loss of $4.1 million or $1.16 per share for the quarter ended June 30, 1998. The increase in loss was primarily attributable to an increase in Selling, General and Administrative expenses associated with the Company’s expansion plans. These expenses included an increase in aggregate salaries from $2.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 1998 to $5.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 1999. This increase was due to the number of full time employees increasing from over 120 to over 340 during the period, necessitated by the completion of the Company’s new SuperPOP Internet Data Centers in New York, Santa Clara, CA and London. EBITDA loss (loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and other non-cash charges) was $5.7 million for the 3rd quarter of 1999, compared to $1.1 million for the 3rd quarter of 1998.
