Growth, Innovation and Value Themes for Equinix Analyst Day 2014


Members of the Equinix C-suite, led by CEO Steve Smith, met with 300 members of the global investment community in New York today to present the Equinix worldview looking forward from 2014 and beyond to fifteen years out.

Smith, in his opening presentation, laid the groundwork for the day’s themes, focusing on growth opportunities, innovation in the Cloud, and the Equinix value proposition for shareholders. Other morning presenters included Chief Technology Officer Ihab Tarazi, and Chief Marketing Officer Sara Baack, who led a customer panel along with Chief Information Officer Brian Lillie.

The afternoon session featured remarks from Chief Operating Officer Charles Meyers and a panel session with regional presidents Eric Schwartz, Karl Strohmeyer and Samuel Lee. Chief Financial Officer Keith Taylor closed with a presentation on the financial outlook and then was joined by Steve Smith and Charles Meyers to field Q & A from the audience.

The all-day program, held at The TimesCenter in Manhattan, also showcased kiosks featuring Real Estate, the Performance Hub, Cloud Exchange and Ecosystems. The event concluded with a cocktail reception where over 40 Equinix executives and employees joined analysts and investors for an opportunity to engage in a more informal dialogue.
