Liquidity Services Announces First Quarter Fiscal Year 2020 Financial Results

  • GMV of $148.6 million — GAAP Revenue of $49.5 million — GAAP Net Loss of $5.2 million
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $(2.1) million
  • Launch of unified marketplace for industrial sellers expands opportunity and provides a superior user experience

BETHESDA, Md., Feb. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Liquidity Services (NASDAQ: LQDT; www.liquidityservices.com), a global solution provider in the reverse supply chain with the world’s largest marketplace for business surplus, today announced financial results for the first quarter fiscal year 2020 ended December 31, 2019. The Company’s Q1-FY20 performance was within the guidance range for all metrics including Gross Merchandise Volume (GMV), GAAP Net Loss, GAAP EPS, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP Adjusted EPS.

“During our first quarter fiscal year 2020, the majority of our business performed well as our Retail Supply Chain Group (RSCG), GovDeals and Machinio segments continued to expand their market share while our Capital Assets Group (CAG) segment performed below expectations. Our RSCG segment GMV grew 12% over the prior year period marking our tenth consecutive quarter of double-digit year-over-year GMV growth in this segment, as we continue to deliver significant value to our retail and consumer brand manufacturer sellers and buyers. Our core GovDeals segment GMV grew 5% and we signed over 300 new agency clients as we added market share in California, Minnesota, New York, Oregon and Texas. Our Machinio segment revenue grew 85% over the prior year period as we continued to expand our data driven solutions for the marketing and sale of industrial equipment including: machine tools, construction and agricultural equipment, commercial trucks, and biopharma assets,” said Bill Angrick, Chairman and CEO of Liquidity Services.

“Our CAG segment GMV declined 36% versus the prior year period and was impacted by the wind down of our DoD Scrap contract and softness in our energy and industrial verticals in the Americas and Asia Pacific regions. We have launched a new self-directed offering for industrial sellers and are in the process of migrating more of our existing CAG sellers from our fully-managed solutions to our self-directed platform solutions and have had early positive response as customers have greater control and flexibility over the timing of their sales, reduced costs, and access to the power of our 3.6 million registered buyers,” continued Angrick.

In support of our RISE strategy, which is focused on recovery maximization, increasing sales, service expansion and expense leverage, we have activated the beta version of our new, unified marketplace which consolidates all asset listings from our legacy CAG marketplaces which includes NetworkIntl.com and Go-Dove.com. Buyers can now find, bid on and buy all assets from our CAG industrial sellers in a single marketplace with a superior user experience. As we complete this marketplace consolidation we anticipate gaining marketing and operational efficiencies that will enhance the value we deliver for sellers and buyers.

“We are excited by the opportunities to leverage the investments we’ve made in our marketplace platform, data driven marketing tools, and domain expertise to grow asset light services with recurring revenue characteristics in multiple verticals and geographies. We anticipate improved growth for the remainder of FY20 as a direct result of these investments,” continued Angrick.

First Quarter Consolidated Operating and Earnings Results
The Company reported Q1-FY20 GMV of $148.6 million, down from $158.5 million in the prior year’s comparable period, including the reduction of the DoD Scrap contract. GMV is an operating measure of the total sales value of all merchandise sold by us or our sellers through our marketplaces and other channels during a given period of time. GAAP Revenue for Q1-FY20 was $49.5 million, down from $54.1 million in the prior period. GMV declined 6% and GAAP Revenue declined 8% compared to the prior year, inclusive of the decline from the DoD Scrap contract. GAAP Net Loss for Q1-FY20 was $5.2 million, which resulted in a diluted loss per share of $0.15 based on a weighted average of 33.5 million diluted shares outstanding, compared to GAAP Net Loss of $5.0 million and $0.15 respectively, in the prior period. Our Non-GAAP adjusted net loss excludes stock compensation expense, impairment and business realignment expenses, acquisition costs, deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustments, fair value adjustments to acquisition earn-outs, and the estimated impact of income taxes on these Non-GAAP adjustments and non-recurring tax adjustments. For Q1-FY20 our non-GAAP adjusted net loss was $4.1 million or $0.12 adjusted diluted loss per share, a decrease compared to the prior period of $3.3 million and $0.10 adjusted diluted loss per share.

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes stock-based compensation expense, acquisition costs such as transaction expenses and changes in earn-out estimates, business realignment expense, deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustments, and goodwill and long-lived asset impairment, was a loss of $2.1 million, a decline from a loss in the same period last year of $1.7 million.

Q1-FY20 comparative year-over-year consolidated financial results reflect double-digit GMV growth in our RSCG segment, as we grew volumes and programs with existing and new seller accounts, GMV growth in our GovDeals segment as we added new sellers, and 85% revenue growth in our Machinio segment. Including our DoD Scrap contract, our commercial activity in the CAG segment declined 36% as compared to a strong performance in our Asia Pacific region in the comparative quarter and ongoing softness in our energy vertical. We also incurred lower expenses from the benefit of the FY-19 reorganization.

Q1 Quarter Segment Operating and Earnings Results
We present operating results in four reportable segments: GovDeals, RSCG, CAG and Machinio. Each segment currently offers separately branded marketplaces to enable sellers to achieve channel marketing objectives to reach buyers. Across our segments, we offer our sellers various pricing and transaction models and a suite of services, and our revenues vary depending upon the pricing models employed and the level of service selected by sellers. 

Our Q1-FY20 segment results are as follows (unaudited, in millions):

1 GovDeals consists of the state and municipal government business. Through Q4 FY19 this includes commercial self-directed GMV as part of our Auction Deals marketplace, which in Q1 FY20 is reflected in the CAG segment.
2 CAG consists of our energy and industrial commercial verticals, our DoD Scrap contract, and beginning in Q1 FY20 commercial transactions within our unified marketplace, which was previously referred to as AuctionDeals.
3 Corporate & Other primarily consists of the Company’s former IronDirect operating segment, which was wound-down in January 2019, and is not individually significant, and elimination adjustments.


Additional First Quarter 2020 Operational Results

  • Registered Buyers — At the end of Q1-FY20, registered buyers totaled approximately 3,630,000, representing a 3.3% increase over the approximately 3,514,000 registered buyers at the end of Q1-FY19.
  • Auction Participants — Auction participants, defined as registered buyers who have bid in an auction during the period (a registered buyer who bids in more than one auction is counted as an auction participant in each auction in which he or she bids), decreased to approximately 453,000 in Q1-FY20, a 8.1% decrease from the approximately 493,000  auction participants in Q1-FY19.
  • Completed Transactions — Completed transactions decreased to approximately 136,000, a 6.2% decrease for Q1-FY20 from the approximately 145,000 completed transactions in Q1-FY19.

Business Outlook
We anticipate that our Q2-FY20 top line results will improve sequentially from Q1-FY20 and year-over-year from Q2-FY19. Compared to Q2-FY19, we expect top line GMV growth in our RSCG and GovDeals segments as we continue to deliver value and drive higher recovery rates for our sellers. We believe that while our CAG segment GMV will be up from Q4-FY19, it will be down compared to the prior year. Compared to Q2-FY19, we expect our Net Loss to improve reflecting the impact of lower stock compensation expense, while Adjusted EBITDA will reflect the impact of the DoD Scrap wind down and higher sales & marketing expenses compared to the prior year as we grow our business.

These forward-looking statements reflect the trends and assumptions for Q2-FY20 compared to the prior year comparable period:

  1. continued growth in our RSCG, GovDeals and Machinio segments;
  2. increased sales headcount to support growth opportunities in our GovDeals and RSCG segments;
  3. continued spending as we launch incremental functionality within our new unified marketplace and for the implementation of tools for data-driven product recommendations, omni-channel behavioral marketing and predictive analytics;
  4. benefits from restructuring and business realignment activities to streamline our organizational processes;
  5. variability in project size and timing within our CAG segment;
  6. negative prior year comparisons in our CAG segment related to the conclusion of our DoD Scrap contract;
  7. variability in our GMV to Revenue ratio based on mix of pricing model and expansion of fee for service offerings; and
  8. no delays or disruption to business activity related to the coronavirus.

For Q2-FY20 our guidance is as follows:

GMV – We expect GMV for Q2-FY20 to range from $145 million to $165 million.

GAAP Net Loss – We expect GAAP Net Loss for Q2-FY20 to range from $(5.6) million to $(2.2) million.

GAAP Diluted EPS – We expect GAAP Diluted Loss Per Share for Q2-FY20 to range from $(0.17) to $(0.07).

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA – We expect non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for Q2-FY20 to range from $(2.5) million to $0.5 million.

Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted EPS – We expect non-GAAP Adjusted Loss Per Diluted Share for Q2-FY20 to range from $(0.13) to $(0.04).

This guidance assumes a diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding for the quarter of 33.8 million and that we will not repurchase shares during the quarter with the approximately $10.1 million available under the share repurchase program.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures

Non-GAAP EBITDA and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA.  Non-GAAP EBITDA is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure and is equal to net loss plus interest and other expense, net; provision (benefit) for income taxes; and depreciation and amortization. Our definition of Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA differs from Non-GAAP EBITDA because we further adjust Non-GAAP EBITDA for stock-based compensation expense, acquisition costs such as transaction expenses and changes in earn-out estimates, business realignment expense, deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustments, and goodwill and long-lived asset impairment.

    Three Months Ended December 31,
    2019   2018
     (Unaudited)
Net loss   $ (5,196 )   $ (5,022 )
Interest and other income, net1   (166 )   (233 )
Provision (benefit) for income taxes   458      266   
Depreciation and amortization   1,572      1,204   
EBITDA   (3,332 )   (3,785 )
Stock compensation expense2   1,039      1,513   
Acquisition costs and impairment of long-lived assets3       82   
Business realignment expenses3,4   —      34   
Fair value adjustments to acquisition earn-outs3   200      —   
Deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustment       432   
Adjusted EBITDA   $ (2,085 )   $ (1,724 )

1 Represents Interest and other income, net, per the Statement of Operations, excluding the non-service components of net periodic pension (benefit) expense.
2 Excludes the impact of forfeitures of stock awards by employees terminated by business realignment actions, which is included in the business realignment expenses line. There were no impacts for the three months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018.
3 Acquisition costs, impairment of long-lived assets, fair value adjustments to acquisition earn-outs, and business realignment expenses are components of Other operating expenses on the Statements of Operations.
4 Business realignment expense includes the amounts accounted for as exit costs under ASC 420 as described in Note 10 to the Consolidated Financial Statements, and the related impacts of business realignment actions subject to other accounting guidance.  There were no related impacts for the three months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018.

Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Loss and Non-GAAP Adjusted Basic and Diluted Earnings Per Share. Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Loss is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure and is equal to net loss plus stock compensation expense, impairment and business realignment expenses, acquisition costs, deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustments, fair value adjustments to acquisition earn-outs, and the estimated impact of income taxes on these non-GAAP adjustments and non-recurring tax adjustments.  Adjusted basic and diluted loss per share are determined using Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Loss. For Q1-FY20 the tax rate used to estimate the impact of income taxes on the non-GAAP adjustments was 13.0% compared to 16.8% used for the Q1-FY19 results. The 13.0% tax rate excludes the impact of the charge to our U.S. valuation allowance.

Q1-FY20 Conference Call
The Company will host a conference call to discuss this quarter’s results at 10:30 a.m. Eastern Time today. Investors and other interested parties may access the teleconference by dialing (844) 795-4614 or (661) 378-9639 and providing conference identification number 2486363  A live web cast of the conference call will be provided on the Company’s investor relations website at http://investors.liquidityservices.com. An archive of the web cast will be available on the Company’s website until February 6, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. ET. An audio replay of the teleconference will also be available until February 20, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. ET. To listen to the replay, dial (855) 859-2056 or (404) 537-3406 and provide conference identification number 2486363 . Both replays will be available starting at 1:30 p.m. ET on the day of the call.

Non-GAAP Measures
To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we use certain non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Earnings per Share. These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors’ overall understanding of our current financial performance and prospects for the future.  We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA: (a) as measurements of operating performance because they assist us in comparing our operating performance on a consistent basis as they do not reflect the impact of items not directly resulting from our core operations; (b) for planning purposes, including the preparation of our internal annual operating budget; (c) to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of our business; (d) to evaluate the effectiveness of our operational strategies; and (e) to evaluate our capacity to fund capital expenditures and expand our business. Adjusted EPS is the result of our adjusted net loss and diluted shares outstanding.

We believe these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses that may not be indicative of our core operating measures. In addition, because we have historically reported certain non-GAAP measures to investors, we believe the inclusion of non-GAAP measures provides consistency in our financial reporting. These measures should be considered in addition to financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. A reconciliation of all historical non-GAAP measures included in this press release, to the most directly comparable GAAP measures, may be found in the financial tables included in this press release.

We are not providing a reconciliation of our guidance for Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA EPS to our guidance for GAAP Net Loss and GAAP Diluted EPS, respectively, because this reconciliation would require us to make projections regarding the amount of stock-based compensation expense and benefit for income taxes, which are reconciling items between GAAP Net Loss and Adjusted EBITDA, as well as the impact of foreign currency fluctuations. These items will impact net income and are out of our control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted due to their high variability and complexity, and inherent uncertainty. For example, equity compensation expense would be difficult to predict because it depends on our future hiring and retention needs, as well as the future fair market value of our common stock, all of which are subject to constant change. As a result, the reconciliation is not possible without unreasonable efforts. In addition, we believe such reconciliations could imply a degree of precision that might be confusing or misleading to investors. The actual effect of the reconciling items that we exclude from Adjusted EBITDA, when determined, may be significant to the calculation of GAAP Net Loss.  As a result, there can be no assurance that such reconciling items will not materially affect our future GAAP Net Loss or GAAP Diluted EPS.

Supplemental Operating Data
To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, we use certain supplemental operating data as a measure of certain components of operating performance. We review GMV because it provides a measure of the volume of goods being sold in our marketplaces and thus the activity of those marketplaces. GMV and our other supplemental operating data, including registered buyers, auction participants and completed transactions, also provide a means to evaluate the effectiveness of investments that we have made and continue to make in the areas of seller and buyer support, value-added services, product development, sales and marketing and operations. Therefore, we believe this supplemental operating data provides useful information to both management and investors. In addition, because we have historically reported certain supplemental operating data to investors, we believe the inclusion of this supplemental operating data provides consistency in our financial reporting.  This data should be considered in addition to financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results.
