Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), a leading provider of network-neutral data centers and Internet exchange services, has announced plans to expand its Hong Kong Internet Business Exchange (IBX) center by more than 80 percent and commence the third expansion of its Singapore IBX center. The expansions are being driven by significant demand growth from existing Equinix customers as well as from other businesses in the Asia-Pacific market. The Equinix Hong Kong IBX is located in the Kowloon Peninsula and currently comprises approximately 3,550 square meters (38,000 gross sq. ft.). The planned 2,990 square meter (32,000 gross sq. ft.) expansion is expected to add 550 sellable cabinets and will be available for customers in the third quarter of 2008. These customers will have direct access to the more than 20 networks, 60 enterprise and content companies, and 20 leading financial institutions already operating within Equinix's Hong Kong IBX, as well as Equinix's Business Continuity Trading Room (BCTR), a specialized disaster recovery site for financial institutions, a principal element of Equinix's value proposition in Hong Kong. Equinix intends to invest approximately $17.0 million in the build out, of which $14.5 million will be incurred in 2008. The planned 1,588 square meter (17,000 gross sq. ft.) expansion in Singapore is Equinix's third expansion of the center. The expansion is expected to add approximately 300 sellable cabinets plus additional power for the original expansion and will be available for customers in the fourth quarter of 2008. Equinix Singapore IBX currently comprises approximately 8,224 square meters (88,000 gross sq. ft.) and last year's Singapore expansions added approximately 2,667 square meters (28,500 gross square feet) and 900 cabinets to the center, which is currently 65% percent reserved. Equinix's Singapore center is home to many of the region's technology companies and houses more than 100 networks, making the IBX one of the richest IP network interconnection points in Asia. Equinix intends to invest approximately $14.0 million in the build out, nearly all of which will be incurred in 2008.
