Bethesda, MD - December 6, 2018 -
Liquidity Services (NASDAQ: LQDT;, a global solution provider in the reverse supply chain with the world’s largest marketplace for business surplus, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2018. The company's Q4-FY18 performance reflected a strong quarter which exceeded our guidance range for Adjusted EBITDA, GAAP Net Loss and GAAP EPS and was at the high end of our guidance range for GMV and Adjusted EPS.

"In Q4-FY18 we achieved stronger growth and we began to reap the benefits of our business transformation, restructuring efforts, new service offerings and increased efficiencies in our operations. On a consolidated basis, our core business, excluding the DoD Surplus Contract, grew GMV by 19%, marking our highest organic quarterly GMV growth rate in six years. Driving this growth, our GovDeals segment grew GMV 14% as we sold higher volumes of higher-value assets, and our RSCG segment grew GMV 10% as we continued to drive more participation from sellers and buyers aided by new marketplace features and seller solutions. Reversing its prior year trend, our CAG segment (excluding the expired DoD Surplus Contract) grew GMV 39%. At the same time, we are proud of the achievements we have made in driving operating efficiencies while simultaneously investing in new sales, marketing and technology initiatives to accelerate our top line growth. In Q4-FY18, we improved our consolidated Adjusted EBITDA by 75% over the comparative period. This notable improvement reflects the successful execution of our realignment and growth strategies which we expect should continue to drive improved results over time," said Bill Angrick, Chairman and CEO of Liquidity Services.

"Overall, we are encouraged by the strides made in FY18 to reset our business following the wind down of the DoD Surplus Contract and to resume organic growth. Our FY18 GMV was up 5%, excluding our DoD Surplus Contract, driven by consistent growth in our GovDeals and RSCG segments throughout the year. FY18 consolidated adjusted EBITDA was up 66% over FY17," continued Mr. Angrick.

"Our strategy in FY19 and beyond remains focused on the long-term growth of our commercial and municipal government marketplaces on a global scale. Our strategic plan focuses on four pillars, which we refer to by the acronym “RISE”, which include: 1 - Recovery Maximization; 2 - Increase Volume; 3 - Service Expansion; and 4 - Expense Leverage. The objective of our RISE strategy is to deliver a more diversified, asset-light business with recurring revenue that focuses on profitability while growing a solid foundation for long-term growth. We continue to innovate our marketplace platform and grow our technology enabled services, such as cloud-based SaaS solutions and self-service offerings, to deliver enhanced value for our buyers, sellers and shareholders,” continued Mr. Angrick.

Update on LiquidityOne
Our LiquidityOne transformation initiative is designed to deliver an improved online marketplace platform and related tools to enhance our customer experience, operations and ability to scale to a much larger business. We believe 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. Our plan is to launch a new consolidated marketplace in calendar year 2019 to provide a single online destination to search, find, and buy any asset from across our network of marketplaces. As part of the marketplace transition strategy, our Go-Dove marketplace is expected to launch on the new platform in early 2019, and the retail liquidation marketplace will be integrated into the new platform later in the year. The completion of these deployments will further align our business processes, marketing initiatives, and optimize our platform technology.
