The Brisbane-based global provider of elastic interconnection services reports 39% growth for the second quarter, which chief financial officer Haidee Van Ruth says reflects the first full quarter of acquisition revenue and organic growth for Megaport.
“This is a result of a strong contribution from North America with a 272% net increase, along with continued growth in Australia and Europe,” Van Ruth said.
“Of particular note, there was a 40% increase in VXCs during the period, which improved the average revenue per port and overall revenue. This indicates that Megaport customers are leading the trend of cloud compute adoption, and increasing their consumption of cloud connectivity.”
Megaport (ASX:MP1) now operates 141 data centres in 37 cities across 19 countries including 45 data centres in the Asia Pacific region with the addition of three new data centres in Australia and Singapore.
The company says Australia is operating EBITDA positive and at the end of the quarter it launched additional capacity through a Trans-Pacific link to support global multi-cloud interconnection.
According to Megaport, connecting Hong Kong to Los Angeles, and adding a secondary path from Singapore to Hong Kong, was driven by customer demand.
