Liquidity Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: LQDT; today reported its financial results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2013 (Q1-13) ended December 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. (Liquidity Services or the Company) reported consolidated Q1-13 revenue of $122.2 million, an increase of approximately 15% from the prior year’s comparable period. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes stock based compensation and acquisition costs including changes in acquisition earn out payment estimates, for Q1-13 was $24.2 million, an increase of approximately 6% from the prior year’s comparable period. Q1-13 GMV, the total sales volume of all merchandise sold through the Company’s marketplaces, was $233.4 million, an increase of approximately 30% from the prior year’s comparable period.

Net income in Q1-13 was $6.7 million or $0.20 diluted earnings per share. Adjusted net income, which excludes stock based compensation, acquisition costs including changes in acquisition earn out payment estimates and amortization of contract-related intangible assets associated with the Jacobs Trading acquisition – net of tax, in Q1-13 was $13.6 million or $0.41 adjusted diluted earnings per share based on 33.1 million fully diluted shares outstanding, an increase of approximately 15% and 11%, respectively, from the prior year’s comparable period.

“Liquidity Services generated strong adjusted EBITDA and EPS results during Q1-FY13 as we expanded margins in our core business due to operating leverage and as we continued to benefit from large commercial and government clients placing their trust in us to handle more of their excess inventory and high value capital asset sales,” said Bill Angrick, Chairman and CEO of Liquidity Services. “We remain focused on executing our long term growth strategy to achieve $2 billion in GMV by fiscal year 2016. During the quarter, we continued to advance our multi-year investment efforts in upgrading our ecommerce platform, investing in our sales and marketing organization and integrating our recent acquisitions of NESA and GoIndustry which have expanded our operations to Canada, Europe and the Asia Pacific regions. While the pace of integrating our GoIndustry acquisition is currently slower than expected and will require more investment, particularly in the Asia Pacific region, our expanded breadth of services, industry expertise and geographic coverage has been well received by our clients and has strengthened our competitive position in the reverse supply chain market. We believe these important investments uniquely address the client needs of Fortune 500 retailers, manufacturers and public sector agencies and position us well for long term profitable growth and market leadership.”
