2006 was another strong growth year for VeriCenter. Our 26% revenue increase came entirely from organic sales growth

VeriCenter, Inc., a leading provider of managed hosting, colocation, and infrastructure services to mid-to-large enterprises, today announced annual revenues of $63.4 million in 2006, up 26 percent over 2005. Fourth quarter revenue of $17.2 million was up 6% sequentially over third quarter results, and was VeriCenter’s 26th consecutive quarter of revenue growth since its inception in 2000.

"2006 was another strong growth year for VeriCenter. Our 26% revenue increase came entirely from organic sales growth" said Gray Hall, CEO and president of VeriCenter, Inc. "Our fourth quarter was particularly strong. In December we reached an annual revenue run-rate of $70 million. In our recurring-revenue business, it is exciting to reach the $70 million threshold. We look forward to further growth from this level."

VeriCenter reached many milestones in 2006, including its 22nd consecutive quarter of positive EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) and completing expansions in four of its seven data centers. Operating at only 22 percent data center capacity utilization, VeriCenter has substantial room to grow within its existing footprint of premier data center facilities.
