Forward-looking expectations for Liquidity Services

For the first quarter of fiscal 2024, Liquidity Services expects GMV to range from $295 million to $325 million. It also anticipates that net income will range from $1.5 million to $4.0 million. “We concluded our fiscal year with strong fourth quarter results, setting a new annual record for GMV at $1.2 billion,” says CEO Bill Angrick. “Looking forward to fiscal year 2024, we have launched our modernized GovDeals marketplace, and are increasingly leveraging our Retail Supply Chain Group’s (RSCG) network of warehouses to offer consumer goods for curbside pickup by extending our AllSurplus Deals marketplace to additional locations.”


In January, Liquidity Services acquired Sierra Auction. Sierra is a full-service auction company specializing in the sale of vehicles, equipment and surplus assets for government agencies, commercial businesses, and charities. Sierra hosts the largest weekly public online auctions in Arizona, the company says. “The transaction accelerates Liquidity Services’ penetration of the southwest US market for municipal government surplus and expands the size of Liquidity Services’ overall transportation and used equipment footprint,” the company says.

Established in 1986 in Phoenix, Sierra Auction is the sole auction outlet for seized and forfeited assets from several prominent state and county government agencies in Arizona.

Terms of the deal were not released.
