Liquidity Services Inc

CIK: 1235468 Ticker: LQDT

GMV of $163.6 million -- Revenue of $50.6 million -- GAAP Net Loss of $(3.7) million
Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $(0.2) million
Double-Digit Organic GMV Growth Year-Over-Year, excluding completed DoD Surplus Contract

Bethesda, MD - August 2, 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 third quarter fiscal year 2018 ended June 30, 2018. The company's Q3-FY18 performance exceeded our guidance range for GAAP Net Loss, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, GAAP EPS, and Non-GAAP Adjusted EPS and was within guidance range for gross merchandise volume (GMV).

"Our third quarter results reflect successful execution of our growth strategy as we generated double-digit organic GMV growth, excluding the completed DoD Surplus contract, and positive operating cash flow. We achieved year over year GMV growth of approximately 12% in our RSCG segment, 13% in our GovDeals segment, and 13% growth in our CAG segment excluding the DoD contracts. Notably, our RSCG segment had strong performance from existing clients as programs with manufacturers and large retailers expanded; our GovDeals segment continued to sign new clients and saw an increase in high value assets sold through its marketplace; and our industrial vertical within the CAG segment closed several large transactions across North America, EMEA, and Asia. We also achieved better than expected bottom line results due to a more favorable mix of higher margin transactions, lower than expected consulting fee expenses related to our LiquidityOne initiative, and lower corporate spending. The strength in the business during Q3-FY18 was partially offset by continued softness in our energy vertical," said Bill Angrick, chairman and CEO of Liquidity Services. "We are pleased with our performance as we focus on driving higher recovery through technology and innovation that improves the customer experience. We added over 375 new seller accounts and nearly 26,000 new registered buyers in the third quarter, reflecting the value of our transformation in better solving the needs of our sellers and buyers across our business segments and verticals. As previously announced on July 10, 2018, we acquired Machinio Corp which operates a robust online equipment listing marketplace, with over 1.2 million assets for sale, valued at over $25 billion, and 10 million annual website visits across 190 countries. This acquisition supports our strategy as the world’s largest marketplace for business surplus by expanding the services and channels we offer our sellers to maximize recovery and growing our network of buyers in important global equipment verticals, including construction, machine tool, transportation, printing and agriculture."

Update on LiquidityOne
Our LiquidityOne transformation initiative will deliver an improved online marketplace platform and related tools to enhance our customer experience, operations and ability to scale to a much larger business. As planned, we successfully released an enhanced version of our GovDeals and AuctionDeals self-service marketplaces in Q3-FY18 that improves the back office support we provide our customers and internal operations teams. In addition, we made substantial enhancements to our LiquidityOne returns management software platform to support the needs of retailers and manufacturers. We expect to deploy our enhanced e-commerce capabilities to all our existing marketplaces by the end of calendar year 2018, while preparing for the retail liquidation marketplace launch soon thereafter. This initiative will further align our business processes and optimize our platform technology.

Finally, we anticipate the launch of a new consolidated marketplace on our LiquidityOne e-commerce platform in early calendar year 2019, which will serve as a single marketplace to search, find and buy any asset from across our network of marketplaces. 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.  This launch has been delayed to accommodate peak year-end activity.
