OPENLANE, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results

CARMEL, Ind., Aug. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- OPENLANE, Inc. (NYSE: KAR), today reported its second quarter financial results for the period ended June 30, 2023.

"I am very pleased with our solid performance in the second quarter. Against an industry backdrop of continued tight supply, we delivered strong growth in revenue, total gross profit and adjusted EBITDA," said Peter Kelly, CEO of OPENLANE. "Our performance was led by our Marketplace segment, which, given the scalability of our asset-light, digital model, is very well positioned to help build on our positive operational and financial performance. And our rebrand and associated platform consolidation strategy is beginning to take meaningful shape, creating more liquid and cost efficient markets that help our customers achieve better outcomes while accelerating innovation and growth at OPENLANE."

Second Quarter 2023 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue of $416.9 million, an increase of 9% year-over-year
  • Loss from continuing operations of $193.8 million, or $(1.87) per diluted share, driven by non-cash goodwill and intangibles impairment charges of $221.4 million, net of tax impacts
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $83.8 million, an increase of 49%, including receipt of $20.0 million early termination payment
  • Marketplace Adjusted EBITDA of $43.5 million, a $38.5 million increase year-over-year including receipt of $20.0 million early termination payment
  • Operating adjusted net income from continuing operations of $36.8 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared with $6.6 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.
  • $142.6 million of cash flow from operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2023, drove a reduction in net debt of $117.5 million

2023 Guidance
The company's previously stated annual guidance for Adjusted EBITDA remains unchanged, while the company's other guidance measures have been updated as shown below.


Annual

Guidance

Income (loss) from continuing operations (in millions)

($166) - ($153)

Adjusted EBITDA (in millions)

$250 - $270

Income (loss) from continuing operations per share - diluted *

($1.92) - ($1.80)

Operating adjusted net income from continuing operations per share - diluted

$0.60 - $0.70

* The company uses the two-class method of calculating income from continuing operations per diluted share. Under the two-class method, income from continuing operations is adjusted for dividends and undistributed earnings (losses) to the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock, and the weighted average diluted shares do not assume conversion of the preferred shares to common shares.

Earnings guidance does not contemplate future items such as business development activities, strategic developments (such as restructurings, spin-offs or dispositions of assets or investments), contingent purchase price adjustments, significant expenses related to litigation and changes in applicable laws and regulations (including significant accounting and tax matters) and intangible impairments. The timing and amounts of these items are highly variable, difficult to predict, and of a potential size that could have a substantial impact on the company's reported results for any given period. Prospective quantification of these items is generally not practicable. Operating adjusted net income from continuing operations per share excludes amortization expense associated with acquired intangible assets, as well as one-time charges, net of taxes. See reconciliations of the company's guidance included below.

OPENLANE, 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.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, each tax deductible item was booked to the
applicable statutory rate. The deferred tax benefits of $52.5 million and $6.5 million associated with the goodwill
and tradename impairments, respectively, resulted in the U.S. being in a net deferred tax asset position. Due to
the three year cumulative loss related to U.S. operations, we recorded a $29.6 million valuation allowance
against the U.S. net deferred tax asset.
