  • KAR completed the sale of its ADESA U.S. physical auction business to Carvana and is using the proceeds to reduce debt

  • The company has over $800 million of available cash as of June 30, 2022

  • The company's performance was impacted by reductions in conversion rates across its marketplaces

CARMEL, Ind., Aug. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- KAR Auction Services, Inc. (NYSE: KAR) today reported its second quarter financial results for the period ended June 30, 2022.

"During the second quarter, KAR increased revenue and total gross profit, grew gross profit per vehicle sold in our marketplace business, and delivered continued strong performance in our financing business," said Peter Kelly, CEO of KAR Global. "Looking ahead, we remain highly focused on cost management, pricing and platform consolidation, which we expect to contribute to improved second half results and help position us for future growth. However, if the conversion pressures experienced in the second quarter do not improve, we would expect full year 2022 Adjusted EBITDA may be as low as $245 million as sellers and buyers look for price equilibrium across our marketplaces. Accordingly, we are updating our previous guidance for Adjusted EBITDA to a range of $245 to $265 million."

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights
The company has classified the ADESA U.S. physical auction business as discontinued operations. As such, the results discussed herein refer to the continuing operations of KAR and do not include the results of the ADESA U.S. physical auction business.

  • Total revenue for the second quarter of 2022 was $384.2 million, an increase of 2% compared with $376.0 million for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Loss from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2022 of $5.4 million, or $(0.10) per diluted share, compared with $15.3 million, or $(0.16) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Marketplaces had a conversion rate of 36% of vehicles offered for the second quarter of 2022, compared with 48% for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 was $56.1 million, compared with $62.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

  • Operating adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations per diluted share was $0.04 for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, compared with $(0.03) for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

  • Year-over-year increase in digital dealer-to-dealer marketplaces of 5%, including acquired volume from CARWAVE.

  • Marketplace gross profit per vehicle sold increased 11% to $282 for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, compared with $254 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

  • AFC's strong second quarter performance was driven by increased revenue per loan transaction of 19% and increased loan transactions of 13%.

KAR Auction Services, Inc.
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, operating adjusted net income (loss) and operating adjusted net income (loss) per share as presented herein are supplemental measures of our performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). They are not measurements of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as substitutes for net income (loss) or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that these measures provide investors additional meaningful methods to evaluate certain aspects of the company's results period over period and for the other reasons set forth below.

EBITDA is defined as net income (loss), plus interest expense net of interest income, income tax provision (benefit), depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted for the items of income and expense and expected incremental revenue and cost savings as described in our senior secured credit agreement covenant calculations. Management believes that the inclusion of supplementary adjustments to EBITDA applied in presenting Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate to provide additional information to investors about one of the principal measures of performance used by our creditors. In addition, management uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate our performance.

Depreciation expense for property and equipment and amortization expense of capitalized internally developed software costs relate to ongoing capital expenditures; however, amortization expense associated with acquired intangible assets, such as customer relationships, software, tradenames and noncompete agreements are not representative of ongoing capital expenditures, but have a continuing effect on our reported results. Non-GAAP financial measures of operating adjusted net income (loss) and operating adjusted net income (loss) per share, in the opinion of the company, provide comparability of the company's performance to other companies that may not have incurred these types of non-cash expenses or that report a similar measure. In addition, operating adjusted net income (loss) and operating adjusted net income (loss) per share may include adjustments for certain other charges.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, operating adjusted net income (loss) and operating adjusted net income (loss) per share have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the results as reported under GAAP. These measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

The 2022 expectation for Adjusted EBITDA is a forward-looking non-GAAP financial measure. We have not reconciled this non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP measure of net income (loss) due to the inherent difficulty and impracticability of predicting certain amounts required by GAAP with a reasonable degree of accuracy. Accordingly, a reconciliation is not available without unreasonable effort.

The following table reconciles EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to income (loss) from continuing operations for the periods presented:

(2)

An effective tax rate of 24.5% was used to determine the amount of income tax benefit on the acquired amortization expense and the loss on extinguishment of debt. There was no income tax benefit related to the contingent consideration adjustment because this item is not deductible for income tax purposes.
