"Liquidity Services recorded outstanding growth during FY21, driven by strong demand from both new and existing customers for our e-commerce marketplace solutions which continue to power the circular economy benefiting businesses, society, and the environment. Our business is at the intersection of several powerful market forces and accordingly we are aggressively investing in our people, products and technology to support our near-term objective of scaling to $1.5 billion in annualized GMV. While these growth investments will pressure our near-term earnings, we expect to realize strong year-over-year growth for the full FY22 and beyond. We are pleased with the consistent execution of our team in support of our mission to build a better future for surplus as we closed FY21 with $886.7 million in GMV, up 43%, and delivered strong growth across all our segments resulting in strong profitability and cash generation. Looking forward to FY22, we are making several strategic investments to expand and scale the solutions we offer to large enterprises, small businesses and government agencies across the world. In our GovDeals segment, our acquisition of Bid4Assets broadens our online real estate solutions available to state and local government agencies. In our Retail Supply Chain Group (RSCG) segment, our new AllSurplus Deals consumer marketplace introduces a new, direct to consumer online sales channel for retail surplus, and our new Northern Pennsylvania distribution center increases our capacity to efficiently serve retail buyers and sellers in the northeastern United States. We believe that our ability to rapidly leverage our scalable marketplace platform will enable us to drive well over $1 billion in GMV in FY22 and continue to enhance our bottom line over time," said Bill Angrick, Chairman and CEO of Liquidity Services.

"Our Q4-FY21 results demonstrate the continuing role our e-commerce marketplace solutions play in powering the $100 billion+ circular economy. Businesses and government agencies continue to embrace the economic, environmental and sustainability benefits they gain from our online solutions. GMV in our GovDeals segment grew 20% over the prior year’s comparable quarter, driven by strong buyer engagement and a broader array of high value assets, including vehicles, heavy equipment and real estate that government agencies are selling using our digital marketplace solutions. GMV in our RSCG segment grew 10% over the prior year’s comparable quarter, as large retail sellers continued to expand their use of our digital marketplaces and value added services to reduce waste and overall supply chain costs. GMV in our Capital Assets Group (CAG) segment increased 60% over the prior year's comparable quarter, driven by heavy equipment and industrial asset sales in North America, and strong principal sales in EMEA, as buyers overcome travel restrictions internationally. Our Machinio segment grew revenue by 47% over the prior year's comparable quarter, as equipment owners and dealers continue to seek and benefit from our digital marketing and inventory management solutions," concluded Angrick.

During FY21, the Company completed $31.1 million of share repurchases, including $15.0 million in Q4-FY21 that completed its then remaining authorization. On December 6, 2021, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a new share repurchase program of up to $20.0 million of the Company’s common stock, to expire on December 31, 2023. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors, including price, general business and market conditions, and the existence of alternative investment opportunities. The repurchase program will be executed consistent with the Company's capital allocation strategy of prioritizing investment to grow the business over the long term.

1 Includes a net $24.6 million benefit, or $0.70 per share, from the release of our valuation allowance on US deferred tax assets in Q4-FY21. For further information, see Note 10, Income Taxes, to our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2021.
