    • 21Vianet's (NASDAQ:VNET) adjusted operating expenses rose 130% Y/Y in Q4 to $37.8M and made up 27.5% of revenue, up from 25.5% in Q3 and 18.7% a year ago. That, in turn, led EPS to miss estimates in spite of a revenue beat.
    • On a non-adjusted basis, sales/marketing spend rose 107% to $16.1M, R&D rose 89.6% to $6.4M, and G&A rose 192.5% to $25.7M. Adjusted gross margin was 34%, even with Q3 and up from 29% a year earlier.
    • Top-line numbers remained strong: Hosting and related service revenue rose 63.8% Y/Y to $96.1M thanks to data center cabinet, CDN, and cloud service growth; managed network service revenue rose 41.6% to $41.5M.
    • Cabinet count rose 53% to 21,522, with 3,378 added in Q4 alone. A recent deal with investor/major cloud services provider Kingsoft will result in at least 5K cabinets being leased over the next 3 years.
    • Revenue guidance is in-line: Q1 revenue of RMB883M-RMB924M (+54% Y/Y at the midpoint) vs. an RMB912.4M consensus, and full-year revenue of RMB3.91B-RMB4.11B (+45% at the midpoint) vs. a consensus of RMB3.98B.

    • Though it beat Q3 estimates, 21Vianet (NASDAQ:VNET) is guiding for Q4 revenue of RMB812M-RMB848M ($132.2M-$138.1M), +61% Y/Y at the midpoint but well below an RMB901.1M ($146.8M) consensus.
    • Q4 adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in a range of RMB152M-RMB168M, and full-year adjusted EBITDA guidance has been cut to RMB551M-RMB567M from RMB600M-RMB630M.
    • The guidance is attributed to the transition to VAT collection and revised expectations for 21Vianet's cloud and managed network services (MNS) businesses. SA author Trinity Research has asserted MNS runs ghost offices, and that its subsidiaries are operating illegally.
    • Q3 hosting/related service revenue +52% Y/Y to $83.6M. MNS revenue +50.4% to $43.2M. Opex rose 21.1% to $23.3M.
