Liquidity Services Announces First Quarter Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Results

  • GMV of $155.4 million-- Revenue of $61.1 million -- GAAP Net Loss of $(1.2) million
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $(3.0) million
  • GovDeals and Retail Supply Chain Group segments each drive double-digit year over year GMV growth
  • Excluding the Department of Defense (DoD) Surplus and Scrap Contracts, the Capital Assets Group segment grows GMV sequentially by 51% reflecting new client wins and energy sector recovery

BETHESDA, Md., Feb. 01, 2018 (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 2018 ended December 31, 2017. The company's Q1-FY18 performance was ahead of our guidance for GAAP Net Loss, GAAP EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EPS. Gross Merchandise Volume (GMV) was near the top end of our guidance range. The performance was driven by client growth in our GovDeals and Retail Supply Chain Group (RSCG) segments, sequential improvement in commercial sales volumes in our Capital Asset Group (CAG), and the impact of lower expenses as a result of our organizational realignment efforts over the past four months. GAAP Net Loss and GAAP EPS were positively impacted by a $5.2 million one-time tax benefit from the new corporate tax law.

"Though not satisfied, we are encouraged with our Q1-FY18 results as we focus on our growth initiatives to increase market share in our target verticals by expanding relationships with our sellers, buyers, and partners; expand our flexible service offerings for sellers; enhance our buyer experience; and drive operational efficiencies across every part of our business. Our GovDeals segment grew its GMV 27% and our RSCG segment grew its GMV17% driven by growth with both large and mid-size retailers and manufacturers utilizing our sales channels and returns management services. Our CAG segment faced a tough year over year comparison because several large commercial sales occurred in Q1-FY17, but GMV related to our commercial CAG business (excluding our DoD contracts) grew sequentially by 51% over Q4-FY17 driven by multi-national energy and industrial manufacturer clients taking advantage of our global marketplace platform to sell high-value assets. We added approximately 300 new commercial and government (state and local) sellers and approximately 38,000 new registered buyers to our marketplaces during the quarter. Our Q1-FY18 results also demonstrate the positive impact of our cost reduction efforts driven by a more streamlined and efficient organizational structure. We continue to reduce our expenses which offset the impact of the wind-down of the DoD Surplus contract during 2018, while integrating our marketplaces and increasing their productivity," said Bill Angrick, chairman and CEO of Liquidity Services.

"As previously discussed, given that the terms of the new DoD Surplus contract are far more onerous than our current Surplus contract, bidding any higher by Liquidity Services to win the new contract in the December recompete would have been damaging to shareholders. Therefore, we have finalized our wind-down plan for the DoD Surplus contract. We currently expect to sell through all remaining DoD surplus inventory by April 2018 and will eliminate the majority of the staff, warehouses, and field sites dedicated to the Surplus contract by May 2018. This reset in our business will enable us to turn our focus to fueling the long-term growth of our business and the completion of our LiquidityOne platform," continued Angrick.

Update on LiquidityOne
As we previously announced in December, we appointed Roger Gravley as Chief Information Officer (CIO) and expanded his responsibilities to include oversight of our technology platforms, operations, and services, including the implementation of our LiquidityOne e-commerce platform, ERP system upgrade, and new returns management and self-service offerings. In this new role, Mr. Gravley has completed an evaluation of our LiquidityOne road map, and given the planned wind-down of the DoD Surplus contract, we will focus on accelerating the decommissioning of tools dedicated to running our GovLiquidation marketplace. We expect to complete the launch of our remaining marketplaces on our new e-commerce platform by the end of 2018.

Lastly, we anticipate the launch of a new consolidated marketplace on our LiquidityOne e-commerce platform by the end of calendar year 2018, which will serve as a single marketplace to search, find and buy any asset from across our network of marketplaces. A single, unified marketplace will drive increased traffic from our buyer base through more efficient marketing strategies and provide our buyers with a more efficient method of sourcing our global supply of available assets from the most recognizable sellers across the globe.

First Quarter Consolidated Operating and Earnings Results
The company reported Q1-FY18 GMV, an operating measure of the total sales value of all merchandise sold through our marketplaces during the given period, of $155.4 million, down from $159.7 million in the prior year’s comparable period. Revenue for Q1-FY18 was $61.1 million, down from $70.8 million in the prior year’s comparable period. GAAP Net loss for Q1-FY18 was $(1.2) million, which resulted in a diluted loss per share of $(0.04) based on a weighted average of 31.9 million diluted shares outstanding, improved from $(8.4) million and $(0.27) respectively, in the prior year’s comparable period. Non-GAAP adjusted net loss, which excludes stock-based compensation, impairment and business realignment expenses, acquisition costs, and the estimated impact of income taxes on these adjustments as well as non-recurring tax adjustments, was $(4.6) million or $(0.14) adjusted diluted loss per share, an improvement from $(6.8) million and $(0.22) respectively, in the prior year’s comparable period.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, which excludes stock-based compensation, impairment and business realignment expenses, and acquisition costs, was a loss of $(3.0) million, an improvement from the prior year’s comparable period of $(4.3) million.

Q1-FY18 comparative consolidated financial results reflect strong growth in our GovDeals and RSCG segments and benefits from the wind down of the Truckcenter live auction business, lower expenses due to restructuring in our IronDirect business and our CAG segment, and lower corporate expenses. These gains were offset by lower volume and an unfavorable mix of goods received under our DoD Scrap contract, lower volume of goods received and declining service fee revenue under our DoD Surplus contract, and lower sales volumes in our CAG segment. During the quarter, we also recorded business realignment charges, primarily severance, associated with reductions in IT, general and administrative, sales and marketing, and operations activities.

First Quarter Segment Operating and Earnings Results
We present operating results in three reportable segments: GovDeals, Capital Assets Group (CAG), and Retail Supply Chain Group (RSCG). These three segments constitute approximately 97% of our revenue, and each offers separately branded marketplaces to enable sellers to achieve channel marketing objectives to reach buyers. Across our segments, we offer our sellers various transaction models as well as a suite of services, and our revenues vary depending upon the transaction models employed and the level of service selected by sellers.

Our Q1-FY18 segment results are as follows (unaudited, in millions):

Additional First Quarter 2018 Operational Results

  • Registered Buyers — At the end of Q1-FY18, registered buyers totaled approximately 3,200,000 representing an approximately 6% increase over the approximately 3,000,000 registered buyers at the end of Q1-FY17.
  • 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 519,000 in Q1-FY18, an approximately 5% decrease from the approximately 544,000 auction participants in Q1-FY17.
  • Completed Transactions — Completed transactions decreased to approximately 122,000, an approximately 5% decrease for Q1-FY18 from the approximately 129,000 completed transactions in Q1-FY17.

Business Outlook
Our near-term outlook remains cautious, but we expect to realize improvements across the businesses during FY18. In Q2-FY18, we expect continued growth in our RSCG and GovDeals segments as we continue to expand our seller base and services and we enter the high season for retail returns. Our commercial business within the CAG segment is expected to be in-line with our comparative performance in Q2-FY17 reflecting timely execution of projects, yet we expect to see sequential improvement as the CAG commercial business continues to drive increased activity from our sellers. Our progress in these segments will be offset by the wind-down of our DoD Surplus contract. In Q2-FY18, we will continue to sell through our DoD Surplus contract’s remaining inventory which consists of mostly low-margin, low-value property that will generate significantly lower revenue and earnings on a comparative basis for that contract. Additionally, our DoD Scrap contract is expected to have comparatively lower performance as the result of reduced property flows and lower quality mix of assets. The combined impact of the DoD contracts will negatively impact our CAG segment results.

Regarding our FY18 outlook as impacted by the DoD Surplus contract, we anticipate that the overall business will benefit from the impact of reorganization efforts completed in Q4-FY17 and Q1-FY18 within technology, operations, corporate, and the commercial business within our CAG segment. These efforts are expected to generate a benefit during FY18 of $12 million to $14 million. We expect these benefits combined with our realignment of our Truckcenter and Iron Direct businesses in 2017 to offset the impact of the DoD Surplus contract. We also expect our core businesses to continue to improve throughout FY18.

Lastly, our expenses related to the LiquidityOne transformation, including the deployment of our e-commerce platform and implementation of the ERP and back-end systems, will continue throughout the remainder of calendar 2018.

The following forward-looking statements reflect the following trends and assumptions for Q2-FY18:

(i) negative impact related to our DoD Surplus business as we wind down operations and sell through our remaining inventory which consists of mostly low-value property;
(ii) spending under our LiquidityOne transformation initiative as we continue with our ERP implementation and the launch of our next marketplace onto the new e-commerce platform;
(iii) benefits from restructuring and business realignment charges related to streamlining of our organizational processes;
(iv) continued strength in our GovDeals segment and steady year-over-year growth;
(v) high seasonality in our RSCG segment; and
(vi) continued declining volumes of goods received and a worsening mix of commodities under the DoD Scrap contract.

For Q2-FY18 our guidance is as follows:

GMV - We expect GMV for Q2-18 to range from $150 million to $170 million.

GAAP Net Loss - We expect GAAP Net Loss for Q2-18 to range from $(8.4) million to $(6.1) million.

GAAP Diluted EPS - We expect GAAP diluted Loss Per Share for Q2-18 to range from $(0.26) to $(0.19).

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA -We expect non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for Q2-18 to range from $(5.0) million to $(3.0) million.

Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted EPS - We expect non-GAAP Adjusted Loss Per Diluted Share for Q2-18 to range from $(0.23) to $(0.16). This guidance assumes that our diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding for the quarter of 32.0 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

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure and is equal to net (loss) income plus interest and other expense, net; benefit for income taxes; and depreciation and amortization. Our definition of Adjusted EBITDA differs from EBITDA because we further adjust EBITDA for stock-based compensation, acquisition costs, and business realignment expense.

Adjusted EBITDA $(2,962) $(4,331)

Adjusted Net (Loss) Income and Adjusted Basic and Diluted Earnings Per Share. Adjusted net loss is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure and is equal to net income (loss) plus stock compensation expense, impairment and business realignment expenses, acquisition costs, and the estimated impact of income taxes on these non-GAAP adjustments as well as non-recurring tax adjustments. Adjusted basic and diluted loss per share are determined using Adjusted Net (Loss) Income. For Q1-FY18 the tax rate used to estimate the impact of income taxes on the non-GAAP adjustments was 22.7% compared to 35.4% used for the Q1-FY17 results. The 22.7% tax rate excludes the impact of the charge to our U.S. valuation allowance.

An audio replay of the teleconference will also be available until February 15, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

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 Income 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 net income is used to arrive at EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA calculations, and adjusted EPS is the result of our adjusted net income 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 to our guidance for GAAP Net Loss 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 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.

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.
