Consolidated Performance Overview

GTV increased 5% to $1.5 billion and increased 7% when excluding the impact of foreign exchange. GTV from live on site auctions increased 5% to $1.3 billion and GTV from online marketplaces increased 5% to $236.6 million .

Total revenue increased 27% to $393.2 million with Service revenue growth of 9% and Inventory sales revenue growth of 68%. During the quarter, there was a large dispersal of pipeline equipment as part of the $94 million Columbus, Ohio auction held in June 2019 .

Service revenue growth of 9% was driven by an 8% improvement in commissions revenue and a 12% increase in fee revenue. The increase in commissions revenue was primarily due to the Columbus, Ohio auction in the U.S. where the Company saw higher guarantee commission rate performance and improved straight commission rate in the International region. The increase in fee revenue was driven primarily by full implementation of the buyer fees harmonization in June 2019 , higher proportion of low value lots, and fees earned from RBFS.

Inventory sales revenue increased 68% led by the Columbus, Ohio auction, GovPlanet revenue growth from the non-rolling stock program, and a higher volume of inventory sales contracts in the International region. 

Costs of services increased 17% to $50.3 million . The increase was primarily driven by a one-time fee paid to an unrelated third party in connection with a large dispersal of pipeline equipment at the Columbus, Ohio auction, on-going costs to support the growth of GovPlanet operations and overall cost growth in-line with the Company's service revenue growth.

Cost of inventory increased 83% to $149.8 million partially due to the overall increase in inventory sales volume as well as the trailing effect of selling through some lower performing inventory packages acquired in the previous quarter within our International region.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses decreased 4% to $97.7 million primarily due to foreign exchange fluctuations, lower compensation expense in the US and a decrease in professional fees, partially offset by on-going incremental costs related to the GovPlanet non-rolling stock program, and to support the growth in RBFS.

Foreign exchange had an unfavourable impact on total revenue and a favourable impact on expenses. These impacts were primarily due to the fluctuations in the Euro and Canadian exchange rates relative to the U.S. dollar.

Net income attributable to stockholders increased 18% to $54.0 million . The increase was primarily due to higher operating income coupled with lower net interest expenses, partially offset by higher taxes due to an increase in the effective tax rate.

Primarily for the same reasons noted above, diluted EPS attributable to stockholders increased 17% to $0.49 per share compared to $0.42 per share in Q2 2018.

Non-GAAP Measures
This news release references to non-GAAP measures. Non-GAAP 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 generally accepted accounting principles.

The non-GAAP measure diluted adjusted EPS attributable to stockholders* eliminates the financial impact of adjusting items which are after-tax effects of significant non-recurring items that management does not consider to be part of the normal operating results, such as acquisition-related costs, management reorganization costs, and certain other items, which the Company refers to as 'adjusting items'.

There were no adjusting items in Q2 2019 or in the comparative prior year period, and, accordingly, diluted adjusted EPS attributable to stockholders* was equal to diluted EPS attributable to stockholders, the most comparable GAAP measure in the consolidated income statements, for Q2 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA* and Adjusted Net Debt/Adjusted EBITDA* Reconciliation
The Company believe that comparing adjusted net debt/adjusted EBITDA* on a trailing 12-month basis for different financial periods provides useful information about the performance of the Company's operations as an indicator of the amount of time it would take the Company to settle both the short and long-term debt. The Company does not consider this to be a measure of liquidity, which is the ability to settle only short-term obligations, but rather a measure of how well the Company funds liquidity.

The following table reconciles adjusted EBITDA* and adjusted net debt*/adjusted EBITDA* to debt, cash and cash equivalents, net income, and debt as a multiple of net income, which are the most directly comparable GAAP measures in, or calculated from, the consolidated financial statements.

(1)

Please refer to page 10 for a summary of adjusting items during the trailing 12-months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018.

(2)

Adjusted EBITDA* is calculated by adding back depreciation and amortization expenses, interest expense, and income tax expense, and subtracting interest income from net income excluding the pre-tax effects of adjusting items.

(3)

Adjusted net debt* is calculated by subtracting cash and cash equivalents from short and long-term debt.

(4)

Adjusted net debt*/adjusted EBITDA* is calculated by dividing adjusted net debt* by adjusted EBITDA*.


 

Operating Free Cash Flow* ("OFCF") Reconciliation
We believe OFCF*, when compared on a trailing 12-month basis to different financial periods provides an effective measure of the cash generated by our business and provides useful information regarding cash flows remaining for discretionary return to stockholders, mergers and acquisitions, or debt reduction.  Our balance sheet scorecard includes OFCF* as a performance metric. OFCF* is also an element of the performance criteria for certain annual short-term and long-term incentive awards.

The following table reconciles OFCF* to cash provided by operating activities and net capital spending, which are the most directly comparable GAAP measures in, or calculated from, our consolidated statements of cash flows:
