    Net GAAP Loss of $53.8 million
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $(0.7) million
  • Fiscal Year GMV of $642.1 million – Revenue of $316.5 million – Net
    GAAP Loss of $59.9 million
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $3.7 million
  • Net GAAP Loss includes $19.0 million goodwill impairment and $35.8
    million income tax valuation allowance charge
  • IronDirect.com marketplace targeting construction vertical launched
    on new LiquidityOne e-commerce platform

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov. 17, 2016–
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 fourth quarter and fiscal year 2016 ended September 30,
2016. Q4-16 results were within the company’s guidance range for GMV and
above the guidance range for Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP
Adjusted Diluted EPS. As a result of a non-cash goodwill impairment and
a valuation allowance on deferred tax assets, GAAP Net Income and GAAP
Diluted EPS were below the guidance range.

“We delivered solid financial results during Q4-16 with better than
expected bottom line results driven by improved pricing in our scrap and
energy marketplaces and higher service revenues,” said Bill Angrick,
Chairman and CEO of Liquidity Services. “Compared to the prior year, our
energy marketplace (NetworkIntl.com)
GMV was up 45%, our municipal government business (GovDeals.com)
GMV was up 13%, and our retail (Liquidation.com)
and industrial (Go-Dove.com)
marketplaces experienced growth within key client accounts. Our DoD
marketplace (GovLiquidation.com)
GMV was down 12% reflecting lower volumes and a less favorable product
mix. We expanded the scope of our e-commerce offerings by launching our
new IronDirect marketplace in September which enables global fleet
customers and end users to purchase new heavy equipment, attachments,
undercarriage parts and accessories from proven suppliers in the global
construction industry. With the deployment of our first marketplace on
our new e-commerce platform in Q4-16, we have continued to advance our
LiquidityOne transformation initiative and demonstrated the potential of
our platform investments to capture new market opportunities. We expect
to deploy our next marketplace in the spring of FY17 followed by phased
rollouts thereafter,” continued Mr. Angrick.

“Our strategy remains focused on the long term growth of our commercial
and municipal government marketplaces on a global scale. Our ongoing
investment in top talent and the deployment of our new LiquidityOne
platform will enable us to deliver more value to more customers and
scale more efficiently. We expect to resume organic top line growth in
our commercial and municipal government marketplaces in FY17 fueled by
growth in our buyer network, investments in our sales channels,
expansion of our service offerings, and the phased release of our new
e-commerce platform,” Mr. Angrick continued. “Our near term outlook
reflects the normalization of our DoD programs under new contract
pricing, investments to deploy our LiquidityOne platform, and new
go-to-market programs for our commercial and municipal government
businesses, including in new areas such as IronDirect. We expect these
investments will drive long term growth and that our results will
strengthen over the course of FY17 as we grow our business.”

Fourth Quarter Operating and Earnings Results

The company reported Q4-16 GMV, an operating measure of the total sales
value of all merchandise sold through our marketplaces during the given
period, of $159.1 million, a decrease of 6.8% from the prior year’s
comparable period. Revenue for Q4-16 was $78.5 million, a decrease of
1.0% from the prior year’s comparable period. Net GAAP loss for Q4-16
was $53.8 million, which resulted in diluted loss per share of $1.75
based on a weighted average of 30.7 million diluted shares outstanding,
representing a decrease of 23.0% and 20.2% respectively from the prior
year’s comparable period. The net loss reflects a goodwill impairment
charge of $19.0 million and a valuation allowance charge against the
deferred tax assets of $35.8 million. The goodwill impairment was due to
updated assumptions used in the fair value calculation. The valuation
allowance is attributable to recent losses.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income decreased to $(0.6) million from $2.0
million in the prior year’s comparable period. Adjusted diluted earnings
per share decreased to $(0.02) from $0.07 in the prior year’s comparable
period. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, which excludes stock-based
compensation, acquisition costs, impairment of goodwill and long-lived
assets, and gains or losses from business dispositions, decreased to
$(0.7) million from $1.9 million in the prior year’s comparable period.

We exited Q4-16 with $134.5 million in cash and a debt free balance
sheet.

Comparative financial results reflect the sale of Jacobs Trading, the
significant downturn in commodity prices which have reduced prices and
volume from our DoD scrap contract, the transition to the new DoD
Surplus contract with higher product cost terms, and increased
investment in our LiquidityOne transformation plan.

Fiscal Year Operating and Earnings Results

The company reported FY-16 GMV of $642.1 million, a decrease of 19.6%
from the prior year’s comparable period. Revenue for FY-16 was $316.5
million, a decrease of 20.3% from the prior year’s comparable period.
Net GAAP loss for FY-16 was $59.9 million, which resulted in diluted
loss per share of $1.96 based on a weighted average of 30.6 million
diluted shares outstanding, representing increases of 42.8% and 44.0%,
respectively, from the prior year’s comparable period. The net loss
reflects the goodwill impairment charge and valuation allowance charge
taken in Q4-FY16.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income decreased to $(0.6) million from $18.1
million in the prior year’s comparable period. Adjusted diluted earnings
per share decreased to $(0.02) from $0.60 in the prior year’s comparable
period. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $3.7 million, a decrease of 88.9%
from the prior year’s comparable period.

Additional Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2016 Operational Results

  • Registered Buyers — At the end of FY-16,
    registered buyers totaled approximately 2,986,000, representing an
    approximately 5% increase over the approximately 2,845,000 registered
    buyers at the end of FY-15.
  • 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 2,417,000 in FY-16, an
    approximately 3% decrease over the approximately 2,483,000 auction
    participants in FY-15.
  • Completed Transactions — Completed
    transactions increased to approximately 574,000, an approximately 1%
    increase for FY-16 from the approximately 567,000 completed
    transactions in FY-15.

Business Outlook

FY17 results are expected to benefit from growth in our commercial and
municipal government marketplaces. Profitability for the year will be
impacted by the normalization of our DoD programs under new contract
pricing and investments to deploy our new LiquidityOne e-commerce
platform and go-to-market programs for our commercial and municipal
government marketplaces, including in new areas such as IronDirect. We
anticipate completing the second phase of our marketplace rollout onto
the new platform in the spring of 2017 followed by a tiered rollout of
the remaining marketplaces which will carry over into 2018.

The following forward-looking statements reflect the following trends
and assumptions for Q1-FY17:

(i)     continued investment spending under our LiquidityOne transformation
initiative;
(ii) increased cost of sales and lower volume and margins under our new
DoD Surplus contract;
(iii) seasonally lower volumes in our municipal government marketplace and
steady year-over-year growth expected;
(iv) continued signs of improved liquidity in our energy marketplace but
continuing lower than average sales prices and margins;
(v) strong deal flow in our commercial capital assets marketplaces
related to both underwritten and consignment programs;
(vi) investments in our sales teams to further accelerate new and
expanded client relationships;
(vii) growth in core accounts in our retail business;
(viii) growth in core accounts in our IronDirect marketplace; and
(ix) increased cost of sales and lower margins under our new DoD Scrap
contract, and continued variability in commodities pricing, volumes
received, and mix of meta
ls.
 

For Q1-17 our guidance is as follows:

GMV – We expect GMV for Q1-17 to range from
$150 million to $170 million.

GAAP Net Loss – We expect GAAP Net Income
Loss for Q1-17 to range from $(13.0) million to $(10.0) million.

GAAP Diluted EPS – We expect GAAP diluted
Loss Per Share for Q1-17 to range from $(0.41) to $(0.31).

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA –We estimate
non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for Q1-17 to range from $(8.5) million to
$(5.5) million.

Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted EPS – We estimate
non-GAAP Adjusted Loss Per Diluted Share for Q1-17 to range from $(0.31)
to $(0.22). This guidance assumes that we have diluted weighted average
number of shares outstanding for the quarter of 31.8 million and that we
will not repurchase shares with the approximately $10.1 million
available under the share repurchase program.

Liquidity Services
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, impairment of goodwill and long-lived
assets, business realignment expenses, and gains or losses from business
dispositions.

Adjusted Net (Loss) Income and Adjusted Basic and

. Adjusted net income is a
supplemental non-GAAP financial measure and is equal to net income
(loss) plus tax effected stock compensation expense, amortization of
contract-related intangible assets associated with the Jacobs Trading
acquisition, acquisition costs including changes in earn out estimates,
and impairment of goodwill and long-lived assets. Adjusted basic and
diluted earnings per share are determined using Adjusted Net (Loss)
Income. For Q4-16 and FY16, the tax rate used to tax effect stock
compensation expense, amortization of contract intangibles and
acquisition costs was 24.7% which is the FY16 tax rate adjusted
exclusive of the impact of the valuation allowance.

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.

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 customer 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.
