VANCOUVER, Aug. 8, 2016 /CNW/ - Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers Incorporated (NYSE & TSX: RBA, the "Company" or "Ritchie Bros.") reports results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016.  During the second quarter, the Company generated $158.8 million of revenue, a 2% increase compared to revenues of $155.5 million in the second quarter last year, and net income attributable to stockholders for the second quarter of $39.7 million, a 12% decrease compared to $45.1 million in the same period last year.  Diluted earnings per share ("EPS") attributable to stockholders were $0.37, a 12% decrease compared to $0.42 in the same quarter last year. 

During the first half of 2016, the Company generated $290.8 million of revenue, a 7% increase compared to revenues of $271.1 million in the first half of 2015, and net income attributable to stockholders for the first half of $69.1 million, a slight increase from $68.9 million in the same period last year.  Diluted EPS attributable to stockholders was $0.65, a 2% increase from $0.64 in the first half of last year.

"We had a difficult second quarter with modest revenue growth and a decline in EPS versus the same period last year.  Our performance was negatively impacted by the strong comparable quarter we achieved in 2015, a sudden decline in equipment pricing globally in June – across various sectors – that was driven by an imbalance between demand and supply, increasing competitive pressures, as well as higher operational and G&A costs," said Ravi Saligram, CEO of Ritchie Bros.  "Nevertheless, we are encouraged by our strong July performance with GAP up 8%, indications that pricing may be stabilizing, and a robust pipeline going into the rest of the year.  We are also excited that more than half of our GAP in Q2 was generated online, which reinforces that our multichannel and digital strategy is gaining momentum."

Balance sheet scorecard

Income statement scorecard analysis
For the three months ended June 30, 2016

GAP was $1,275.7 million for the second quarter of 2016, a 1% increase compared to the second quarter of 2015.  EquipmentOne, the Company's online equipment marketplace, contributed $41.6 million of gross transaction value ("GTV")2 to GAP in the second quarter of 2016, a 31% increase compared to $31.7 million in the second quarter of 2015.  Second quarter 2016 GAP would have been $28.1 million higher, resulting in a 3% increase over second quarter 2015, if foreign exchange rates had remained consistent with those in 2015. This adverse effect on GAP is primarily due to the declining value of the Canadian dollar relative to the U.S. dollar.

Revenue increased 2% during the second quarter of 2016 to $158.8 million, compared to $155.5 million in the second quarter of 2015, primarily due to volume increases in GAP combined with a strong Revenue Rate over the same comparative period.  Foreign exchange rates had a negative impact on revenues during the second quarter of 2016 as a significant portion of revenues are in Canada and the Netherlands. Refer to the table under "foreign exchange impacts on performance" below for details of this negative foreign exchange rate impact.

The Revenue Rate was 12.45% in the second quarter of 2016, compared to 12.32% in the second quarter of 2015.  The increase in the Revenue Rate is primarily due to an increase in fee revenue, which is not directly linked to GAP. During the second quarter of 2016, the Company continued to actively pursue the use of underwritten commission contracts from a strategic perspective, entering into such contracts only when the risk/reward profile of the terms were agreeable. Our underwritten contract commission rates and volume decreased during the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to the same period in 2015.  Straight commission contracts continue to account for the majority of GAP.

Operating income, decreased 15% during the second quarter of 2016 to $53.6 million, compared to $62.8 million in the second quarter of 2015. This decrease was primarily due to increases in selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses, costs of services, and foreign exchange losses, combined with a decrease in the gain on disposition of property, plant and equipment, and partially offset by the increase in revenues. Foreign exchange gains that occurred in both the second quarter of 2016 and 2015 are now reported in operating income, per US GAAP.

Foreign exchange rates had a negative impact on operating income during the second quarter of 2016. Refer to the table under "foreign exchange impacts on performance" below for details of this negative foreign exchange rate impact.

Operating Income Margin, calculated as operating income divided by revenues, was 33.8% for the second quarter of 2016, 660 basis points lower than 40.4% for the same period last year, primarily due to the decrease in operating income noted above.

Diluted EPS attributable to stockholders for the second quarter of 2016 was $0.37 per diluted share, a 12% decrease compared to the second quarter of 2015.  The decrease in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the same period in 2015 was primarily due to the decrease in operating income.

Income statement scorecard analysis
For the six months ended June 30, 2016

GAP was $2,295.6 million for the first half of 2016, a half year record and a 4% increase compared to the first half of 2015. EquipmentOne, the Company's online equipment marketplace, contributed $65.3 million of GTV to GAP in the first half of 2016, a 22% increase compared to $53.5 million in the first half of 2015. GAP for the first half of 2016 would have been $49.6 million higher, or an additional 6% increase, if foreign exchange rates had remained consistent with those in the same period last year. This adverse effect on GAP is primarily due to the declining value of the Canadian dollar and the Euro relative to the U.S. dollar.

Revenue grew 7% during the first half of 2016 to $290.8 million, compared to $271.1 million in the first half of 2015, as a result of volume increases in GAP combined with a strong Revenue Rate. Foreign exchange rates had a negative impact on revenues during the first half of 2016 as a significant portion of revenues are in Canada and the Netherlands. Refer to the table under "foreign exchange impacts on performance" below for details of this negative foreign exchange rate impact.

The Revenue Rate was 12.67% in the first half of 2016, compared to 12.22% in the first half of 2015. The increase in the Revenue Rate is primarily due to the performance of the Company's straight commission contracts combined with an increase in fee revenue, which is not directly linked to GAP.

Operating Income decreased 3% during the first half of 2016 to $92.8 million, compared to $95.8 million in the first half of 2015. This decrease is due to increases in SG&A expenses, cost of services, and foreign exchange losses, combined with a decrease in the gain on disposition of property, plant and equipment, and partially offset by the increases in revenues. Foreign exchange rates had a negative impact on operating income during the first half of 2016 as a significant portion of revenues are in Canada and the Netherlands. Refer to the table under "foreign exchange impacts on performance" below for details of this negative foreign exchange rate impact.

Operating Income Margin was 31.9% for the first half of 2016, 340 basis points lower than 35.3% for the same period last year, primarily due to SG&A expenses and cost of services increasing at a higher rate than revenue. 

Diluted EPS attributable to stockholders for the first half of 2016 was $0.65 per diluted share, a 2% increase compared to the first half of 2015. The increase was driven by strong performance in the first quarter and a decrease in effective tax rate during the first half of 2016, compared to the same period last year.

Corporate Developments

On June 30, 2016, Ritchie Bros. appointed Sarah Raiss to its Board of Directors.  Sarah is a seasoned corporate director, with board experience at many public companies. She is currently a corporate director at Loblaw Companies (a leading Canadian grocery and pharmacy company), Commercial Metals Company (a steel and metal manufacturer), and Vermilion Energy (an international oil and gas producer).  Sarah retired from TransCanada Corporation in 2011, where she was Executive Vice President of Corporate Services, and was responsible for human resources; information systems; aviation, building and office services; real estate; organizational excellence; communications; branding; and, health and wellness.  Sarah holds a bachelors of Science in Applied Mathematics and an MBA from the University of Michigan.

Acquisition of non-controlling interest in Ritchie Bros. Financial Services ("RBFS")
Subsequent to quarter-end, on July 12, 2016, Ritchie Bros. completed its acquisition of the 49% non-controlling interest in RBFS for CA$53.9 million (US$41.1 million). RBFS provides equipment buyers with the confidence to make offers on equipment, trucks and other industrial assets, with pre-approved loans and financing arrangements. In 2015, RBFS received more than US$1 billion of credit applications and facilitated US$222 million in equipment financing for Ritchie Bros. customers – representing 31% growth in funded loans compared to 2014, and 116% growth compared to 2013. RBFS acts as an intermediary with select lending partners to find financing solutions for customers purchasing equipment, including loans and lease-to-own programs. RBFS does not utilize Ritchie Bros. capital in its financing activities.  The business finances all brands of equipment and provides equipment buyers with the option to purchase assets at Ritchie Bros. auctions, Ritchie Bros. EquipmentOne, or through other sales channels.  Services offered include pre-approved commercial equipment financing, re-financing, and leasing, as well as equipment dealer financing. 

Acquisition of Petrowsky Auctioneers
Subsequent to quarter-end, on August 1, 2016, Ritchie Bros. acquired the business of Petrowsky Auctioneers, for US$7 million, significantly enhancing our market presence in the New England region and providing Ritchie Bros. with a new live reserve auction platform.  Based in North Franklin, Connecticut, Petrowsky Auctioneers sold nearly US$50 million worth of equipment and other assets at auctions in 2015, mostly in the New England region.  Catering largely to equipment sellers in the construction and transportation industries, Petrowsky's auction sales are well aligned with Ritchie Bros.' sector focus.  In addition, Petrowsky also serves customers selling assets in the underground utility, waste recycling, marine, and commercial real estate industries.  The business operates one permanent auction site, in North Franklin, which will continue to hold auctions, and also specializes in off-site auctions held on the land of the consignor.  All Petrowksy auctions are also simulcast live online, allowing online bidders to participate. The Petrowsky brand will be maintained as a brand extension within the Ritchie Bros. family of brands, given its strong and loyal customer base and its offering of reserve auction options.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Foreign exchange impacts on performance
Like many businesses, Ritchie Bros.' performance can be affected by changing foreign exchange rates. As a reminder, Ritchie Bros. discloses all financial figures in U.S. dollars (unless otherwise noted), yet operates in over 15 countries worldwide. Since late 2014, there has been significant weakening of the Canadian dollar and the Euro relative to the U.S. dollar. This weakening has affected the Company's reported operating income when non-U.S. dollar amounts were translated into U.S. dollars for financial statement reporting purposes.

Constant Currency amounts and Translational FX Impact are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company calculates its Constant Currency amounts by applying prior period foreign exchange rates to current period transactional currency amounts. The Company defines Translational FX Impact as the amounts it reports under GAAP, less Constant Currency amounts.

The Company believes that presenting Constant Currency amounts and Translational FX Impact, and comparing Constant Currency amounts to prior period results, provides useful information regarding the potential effect of changes in foreign exchange rates on its performance and the growth or decline in its operating income by eliminating the financial impact of items it does not consider to be part of its normal operating results.

The following tables present our Constant Currency results and the Translational FX Impact for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, as well as reconcile those metrics to second quarter and first half 2016 and 2015 revenues and operating income, which are the most directly comparable GAAP measures in the consolidated financial statements:

Working Capital Intensity
Working Capital Intensity is non-GAAP financial measure that the Company believes, when compared on a 12-month rolling basis to different financial periods, provides useful information about how efficiently the Company converts revenue into cash. The lower the percentage, the faster revenues are converted into cash. The Company calculates Working Capital Intensity as trade and other receivables, plus inventory and advances against auction contracts, less auction proceeds payable and trade payables, divided by revenues.

The following table presents Working Capital Intensity results on a rolling 12-month basis, and reconciles that metric to trade and other receivables, inventory, advances against auction contracts, auction proceeds payable, and trade payables, which are the most directly comparable GAAP measures in the consolidated balance sheets:

Working Capital Intensity was -19.8% for the 12 months ended June 30, 2016, which represents a deterioration of 410 basis points from -23.9% for the 12 months ended June 30, 2015. This deterioration is primarily the result of the increased inventory, partially offset by an increase in auction proceeds payable.

Return on Net Assets ("RONA")
RONA is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company believes, by comparing on a 12-month rolling basis for different financial periods, provides useful information about the after-tax returns generated by the Company's net assets employed by the business. The Company calculates RONA by dividing net income attributable to stockholders, excluding net after-tax interest expenses, by total assets, excluding cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, and current liabilities.

RONA for the 12 months ended June 30, 2016 was 25.4%, an increase of 10 basis points compared to 25.3% for the 12 months ended June 30, 2015. This slight increase was primarily due to an increase in net income attributable to stockholders combined with a decrease in current liabilities and an increase in total assets. Excluding the current portion of long-term debt of 60 million Canadian dollars that was reclassified to current liabilities in the second quarter of 2015, RONA would be 25.4% for the 12 months ended June 30, 2016 compared to 22.8% for the same period in the prior year.  The current portion of long-term debt was refinanced on a long-term basis in May 2016.
