The Company has not provided a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA outlook for fiscal 2024 to GAAP net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, because without unreasonable efforts, it is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the amount or timing of non-GAAP adjustments that are used to calculate Adjusted EBITDA, including but not limited to: (a) advisory, legal and restructuring expenses (b) the net loss or gain on the sale of property plant & equipment or other assets (c) acquisition-related or integration costs relating to our mergers and acquisition activity, including severance costs (d) share-based payments compensation expense which value is directly impacted by the fluctuations in our share price and other variables and, (e) other expenses that we do not believe are indicative of our ongoing operations. These adjustments are uncertain, depend on various factors that are beyond our control and could have a material impact on net income for fiscal 2024.

For the First Quarter:

  • GTV increased 115% year-over-year to $4.1 billion, primarily from the inclusion of $2.3 billion GTV from IAA. GTV increased 10% year-over-year on a pro forma combined basis, with strength coming from the commercial construction and transportation sector and the automotive sector, partially offset by declines in the other sector.
  • Service revenue increased 147% year-over-year to $849.1 million, primarily from the inclusion of $516.9 million of service revenue from IAA. Service revenue increased 14% year-over-year on a pro forma combined basis on higher GTV and a higher average service revenue take rate. Service revenue take rate expanded 80 basis points on a pro forma combined basis year-over-year to 20.8% driven by a higher average buyer fee rate and growth in our marketplace services revenue. Growth in marketplace services revenue was driven by higher ancillary revenue and a higher auction-related fee structure.
  • Inventory sales revenue increased 28% year-over-year to $215.6 million, mainly due to the inclusion of $71.7 million of inventory sales revenue from IAA. Inventory sales revenue decreased 12% year-over-year on a pro forma combined basis due to lower automotive and commercial construction and transportation-related revenue. Inventory rate declined 100 basis points year-over-year on a pro forma combined basis to 8.8%. The decline in inventory rate year-over-year can be attributed to a decrease in prices due to the asset mix and lower price realization in the commercial construction and transportation sector and an increase the average cost of vehicles sold in the automotive sector. This decline was partially offset by strong performance in the GovPlanet business.
  • Net income (loss) available to common stockholders increased to $97.1 million, mainly due to an increase in operating income partially offset by higher net interest expense, higher income tax expense, and allocated earnings to Series A Senior Preferred shareholders.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 increased 150% year-over-year mainly driven by the inclusion of IAA and strong operating performance.

Key Operating Metrics

The Company regularly reviews a number of metrics, including the following key operating metrics, to evaluate its business, measure its performance, identify trends affecting its business, and make operating decisions. The Company believes these key operating metrics are useful to investors because management uses these metrics to assess the growth of the Company’s business and the effectiveness of its operational strategies.

The Company defines its key operating metrics as follows:

Gross transaction value (GTV): Represents total proceeds from all items sold at the Company’s auctions and online marketplaces. GTV is not a measure of financial performance, liquidity, or revenue, and is not presented in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Total service revenue take rate: Total service revenue divided by total GTV.

Inventory returnInventory sales revenue less cost of inventory sold.

Inventory rateInventory return divided by inventory sales revenue.

Total lots soldA single asset to be sold, or a group of assets bundled for sale as one unit. Low value assets are sometimes bundled into a single lot, collectively referred to as “small value lots.”

Non-GAAP Measures

This news release references non-GAAP measures. These measures do not have a standardized meaning and are, therefore, unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The presentation of this financial information, which is not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles, is not intended to be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with US GAAP.

Following the recent changes in the Company’s leadership team and integration with IAA, the Company reevaluated the metrics used to measure profitability and business performance. As a result, beginning in the first quarter of 2024, the Company will no longer report non-GAAP adjusted operating income and non-GAAP operating free cash flow.

Please refer to the quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2024 for a summary of adjusting items during the trailing twelve months ended March 31, 2024 and March 31, 2023.

Adjusted Net Income Available to Common Stockholders and Diluted Adjusted EPS Available to Common Stockholders Reconciliation

The Company believes that adjusted net income available to common stockholders provides useful information about the growth or decline of the net income (loss) available to common stockholders for the relevant financial period and eliminates the financial impact of adjusting items the Company does not consider to be part of the normal operating results. Diluted adjusted EPS available to common stockholders eliminates the financial impact of adjusting items from net income (loss) available to common stockholders that the Company does not consider to be part of the normal operating results.

Adjusted net income available to common stockholders is calculated as net income (loss) available to common stockholders, excluding the effects of adjusting items that we do not consider to be part of our normal operating results, such as share-based payments expense, acquisition-related and integration costs, amortization of acquired intangible assets, executive transition costs and certain other items. Net income (loss) available to common stockholders is calculated as net income (loss) attributable to controlling interests, less cumulative dividends on Series A Senior Preferred Shares and allocated earnings to participating securities.

Diluted adjusted EPS available to common stockholders is calculated by dividing adjusted net income available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of dilutive shares outstanding, except that it is computed based upon the lower of the two-class method or the if-converted method, which includes the effects of the assumed conversion of the Series A Senior Preferred Shares and the effect of shares issuable under the Company’s stock-based incentive plans, if such effect is dilutive.

The following table reconciles adjusted net income available to common stockholders and diluted adjusted EPS available to common stockholders to net income (loss) available to common stockholders and diluted EPS available to common stockholders, which are the most directly comparable GAAP measures in our consolidated financial statements:

Adjusted EBITDA

The Company believes adjusted EBITDA provides useful information about the growth or decline of its net income when compared between different financial periods. The Company uses adjusted EBITDA as a key performance measure because the Company believes it facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period and provides management with the ability to monitor its controllable incremental revenues and costs.

Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adding back depreciation and amortization, interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), and subtracting interest income from net income (loss), as well as adding back the adjusting items.

The following table reconciles adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), which is the most directly comparable GAAP measure in, or calculated from, our consolidated financial statements:

Adjusted Net Debt and Adjusted Net Debt/Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation

The Company believes that comparing adjusted net debt/adjusted EBITDA on a trailing twelve-month basis for different financial periods provides useful information about the performance of its operations as an indicator of the amount of time it would take to settle both the Company’s short and long-term debt. The Company does not consider this to be a measure of its liquidity, which is its ability to settle only short-term obligations, but rather a measure of how well it funds liquidity. Measures of liquidity are noted under “Liquidity and Capital Resources” in our quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2024.

Adjusted net debt is calculated by subtracting cash and cash equivalents from short and long-term debt and long-term debt in escrow. Adjusted net debt/Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by dividing adjusted net debt by adjusted EBITDA.

The following table reconciles adjusted net debt to debt, adjusted EBITDA to net income, and adjusted net debt/ adjusted EBITDA to debt/ net income, respectively, which are the most directly comparable GAAP measures in, or calculated from, our consolidated financial statements.
