Liquidity Services, Inc. Announces Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2012 Financial Results

– Second quarter record revenue of $125.7 million up 41% – Record
Gross Merchandise Volume (GMV) of $218.4 million up 59% – Record
Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization
(EBITDA) of $30.9 million up 120% – Record Adjusted EPS of $0.52 up 136%

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May. 3, 2012–
Liquidity Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: LQDT; www.liquidityservicesinc.com)
today reported its financial results for its second quarter of fiscal
year 2012 (Q2-12) ended March 31, 2012. Liquidity Services, Inc.
provides business and government clients and buying customers
transparent, innovative and effective online marketplaces and integrated
services for surplus assets.

Liquidity Services, Inc. (LSI or the Company) reported consolidated
Q2-12 record revenue of $125.7 million, an increase of approximately 41%
from the prior year’s comparable period. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes
stock based compensation and acquisition costs (including changes in
earn out estimates), for Q2-12 was a record $30.9 million, an increase
of approximately 120% from the prior year’s comparable period. Q2-12
GMV, the total sales volume of all merchandise sold through the
Company’s marketplaces, was a record $218.4 million, an increase of
approximately 59% from the prior year’s comparable period. Fiscal 2012
results include the operations of Jacobs Trading, which the Company
acquired on October 1, 2011.

Net income in Q2-12 was $18.8 million or $0.57 diluted earnings per
share. Adjusted net income, which excludes stock based compensation,
acquisition costs (including changes in earn out estimates) and
amortization of contract-related intangible assets associated with the
Jacobs Trading acquisition – net of tax, in Q2-12 was a record $17.2
million or a record $0.52 diluted earnings per share based on 32.8
million fully diluted shares outstanding, increases of approximately
176% and 136%, respectively, from the prior year’s comparable period.

LSI has a $7.0 million credit, or income, in the Acquisition Costs line
item of its Statement of Operations, as a result of reducing the
estimate of the fair value of the earn out of its TruckCenter.com
acquisition from $7.0 million (recorded at the acquisition), to zero as
of March 31, 2012. Upon review of the estimate as of March 31, 2012, LSI
determined that the operating results of TruckCenter.com are unlikely to
achieve the $7.0 million earn out payment based on the last 11 months of
operating history and estimates for the next 13 months. Therefore, based
upon revised projections, the Company reversed the earn out liability.
The change in estimate does not affect the Company’s effective income
tax rate.

Q2-12 operating cash flow was $26.4 million, an increase of
approximately 178% from the prior year’s comparable period.

“LSI reported record results for GMV, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS
in Q2-12 all of which exceeded our guidance range. Record GMV results
were primarily driven by growth in the volume of goods sold in our
retail supply chain and municipal government marketplaces by existing
and new clients. Our team did an excellent job handling the increased
volumes while maintaining a high level of service and quality to our
clients and buying customers. Our consistent execution has enabled
Liquidity Services to become the trusted provider of choice in our
industry with over 50 Fortune 500 corporations, over 4,500 federal,
state and local government agencies and over 1.7 million registered
buyers utilizing our marketplaces. Our progress has generated strong
financial results for our shareholders, exemplified by our adjusted
EBITDA of $81.2 million and operating cash flow of $62.2 million over
the last 12 months. By continuing to invest in growing our e-commerce
business we intend to capture a significant share of large, highly
fragmented markets, both in the commercial and public sector, while
having a positive impact on our clients financial and environmental
sustainability initiatives,” said Bill Angrick, Chairman and CEO of LSI.

Business Outlook

While economic conditions have improved, our overall outlook remains
cautious due to the volatility in the macro environment and its
potential impact on the retail supply chain and GDP growth.
Additionally, during fiscal year 2012 we expect to fund major upgrades
in our technology infrastructure to support further integration of our
existing businesses and online marketplaces, including the integration
of Truckcenter.com and Jacobs Trading. In the longer term, we expect our
business to continue to benefit from the following trends: (i) as
consumers trade down and seek greater value, we anticipate stronger
buyer demand for the surplus merchandise sold in our marketplaces, (ii)
as corporations and public sector agencies focus on reducing costs,
improving transparency and working capital flows by outsourcing reverse
supply chain activities, we expect our seller base to increase, and
(iii) as corporations and public sector agencies increasingly prefer
service providers with a proven track record, innovative technology
solutions and demonstrated financial strength, we expect our seller base
to increase. We continue to implement the Jacobs Trading acquisition
according to our original plan. The network effect of the integration is
creating efficiencies for our selling and buying customers. These
efficiencies continue to bring new sellers into our marketplace and have
enabled us to increase our operating performance creating margin
improvements as we scale our commercial business. As we improve
operating efficiencies and service levels, we expect our competitive
position to strengthen.

The following forward looking statements reflect trends and assumptions
for the next quarter and FY 2012:

      (i)       stable commodity prices in our scrap business;
(ii) stable average sales prices realized in our capital assets
marketplaces;
(iii) an effective income tax rate of 40%; and
(iv) improved operations and service levels in our retail goods
marketplaces.

Our results may also be materially affected by changes in business
trends and our operating environment, and by other factors, such as: (i)
investments in infrastructure and value-added services to support new
business in both commercial and public sector markets; and (ii) pricing
pressure from buyers in selected categories of our retail goods
marketplaces, which can result in lower than optimal margins.

Our Scrap Contract with the Department of Defense (DoD) includes an
incentive feature, which can increase the amount of profit sharing
distribution we receive from 23% up to 25%. Payments under this
incentive feature are based on the amount of scrap we sell for the DoD
to small businesses during the preceding 12 months as of June 30th
of each year. We are eligible to receive this incentive in each year of
the term of the Scrap Contract and have assumed for purposes of
providing guidance regarding our projected financial results for the
next quarter and fiscal year 2012 that we will again receive this
incentive payment.

GMV – We expect GMV for fiscal year 2012 to
range from $760 million to $800 million, which is an increase from our
previous guidance range of $700 million to $740 million. We expect GMV
for Q3-12 to range from $205 million to $215 million.

Adjusted EBITDA – We expect Adjusted EBITDA
for fiscal year 2012 to range from $96 million to $100 million, which is
an increase from our previous guidance range of $83 million to $87
million. We expect Adjusted EBITDA for Q3-12 to range from $26.0 million
to $28.0 million.

Adjusted Diluted EPS – We estimate Adjusted
Earnings Per Diluted Share for fiscal year 2012 to range from $1.64 to
$1.70, which is an increase from our previous guidance range of $1.32 to
$1.38. In Q3-12, we estimate Adjusted Earnings Per Diluted Share to be
$0.43 to $0.46. This guidance assumes that we have an average fully
diluted number of shares outstanding for the year of 33.2 million, and
that we will not repurchase shares with the approximately $18.1 million
yet to be expended under the share repurchase program.

Our guidance adjusts EBITDA and Diluted EPS for (i) acquisition costs
including transaction costs and changes in earn out estimates; (ii)
amortization of contract intangible assets of $33.3 million from our
acquisition of Jacobs Trading; and (iii) for stock based compensation
costs, which we estimate to be approximately $2.3 million to $2.5
million per quarter for the remaining two quarters of fiscal year 2012.
These stock based compensation costs are consistent with fiscal year
2011.

Key Q2-12 Operating Metrics

Registered Buyers — At the end of Q2-12,
registered buyers totaled approximately 1,711,000, representing a 13%
increase over the approximately 1,508,000 registered buyers at the end
of Q2-11.

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), increased to approximately 564,000 in Q2-12, an approximately 3%
increase over the approximately 546,000 auction participants in Q2-11.

Completed Transactions — Completed
transactions decreased to approximately 128,000, an approximately 3%
decrease for Q2-12 from the approximately 132,000 completed transactions
in Q2-11, as a result of an increase in average transaction size of
approximately 64% from $1,041 in Q2-11 to $1,703 in Q2-12 due to our
lotting and merchandising strategies.

GMV and Revenue Mix — GMV continues to
diversify due to the continued growth in our U.S. commercial business
and state and local government business (the GovDeals.com marketplace).
As a result, the percentage of GMV derived from our DoD Contracts during
Q2-12 decreased to 24.3% compared to 35.2% in the prior year period. The
table below summarizes GMV and revenue by pricing model. The purchase
model revenue mix has increased, as a result of the Jacobs Trading
acquisition.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA
is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure and is equal to net income
plus interest expense and other expense, net; provision for income
taxes; amortization of contract intangibles; and depreciation and
amortization. Our definition of Adjusted EBITDA differs from EBITDA
because we further adjust EBITDA for stock based compensation expense,
and acquisition costs (including changes in earn out estimates).
Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended March 31, 2011
includes the operating losses generated by our UK operations, which were
closed down as of September 30, 2011.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Basic and Diluted
Earnings Per Share
. Adjusted net income is a supplemental
non-GAAP financial measure and is equal to net income plus tax effected
stock compensation expense, amortization of contract-related intangible
assets associated with the Jacobs Trading acquisition and acquisition
costs (including changes in earn out estimates). Adjusted basic and
diluted earnings per share are determined using Adjusted Net Income.
Adjusted net income for the three and six months ended December 31, 2011
includes the operating losses generated by our UK operations, which were
closed down as of September 30, 2011.

Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in
accordance with 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.

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 generally accepted accounting
principles, 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 generally accepted
accounting principles, but should not be considered a substitute for, or
superior to, GAAP results.
