WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan. 16, 2013–
Liquidity Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: LQDT), a leading online auction
marketplace for surplus and salvage assets, announced today preliminary
Gross Merchandise Volume (GMV) results for its first quarter fiscal year
2013 ended December 31, 2012, and is reaffirming guidance for Adjusted
EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share. The Company will discuss
its final results for Q1-FY13 in a conference call on Thursday, January
31, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. Eastern Time. The earnings press release will be
distributed prior to market open on the same day. Bill Angrick, Chairman
and CEO, and Jim Rallo, CFO, will host the earnings event.
For Q1-FY13, Liquidity Services today announced that its Gross
Merchandise Volume (GMV) was approximately $234 million, which falls
below the Company’s guidance range of $240-$250 million. The lower than
expected GMV is a result of several delayed energy equipment sales
within the Company’s capital assets group.
The Company reaffirms its quarterly guidance for Q1-FY13 for Adjusted
EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share (EPS). We expect Adjusted
EBITDA for Q1-FY13 to range from $22.0 million to $24.0 million and
Adjusted Diluted EPS to be $0.36 to $0.40.
