Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure

On November 25, 2013, Equinix, Inc. (the “Company”) posted certain revised historical consolidated financial results to its Investor Relations page at (the “Revised Financial Results”) for all quarterly periods commencing with March 31, 2012. The Revised Financial Results have been posted for the Company’s investors for informational purposes only.

The Revised Financial Results relate to the Company’s evaluation of whether a lengthening of the estimated period over which non-recurring installation fees are recognized, which the Company originally incorrectly considered a change in estimate that it began to recognize prospectively beginning in the second quarter of 2013, should have been applied in earlier periods, and the Company’s conclusion that these longer lives should have been identified and utilized for revenue recognition purposes beginning in 2006. The Revised Financial Results also include the correction of several previously identified immaterial errors that were either uncorrected or corrected in a period subsequent to the period in which the error originated. For a full discussion of these corrections, please see Note 2 of the Company’s Form 10-Q filed for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2013.

Equinix is making reference to certain non-GAAP financial information in the Revised Financial Results and a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures is contained therein.

A copy of the Revised Financial Results is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1. The attached exhibit is provided under this Item 7.01 of Form 8-K to broadly disseminate the information and is furnished to, but not filed with, the Securities and Exchange Commission.
