Management Discussion
  • Total GTV increased 2% to $5.5 billion as compared to 2020. Total GTV decreased 0.4% in 2021 as compared to 2020, when excluding the impact of foreign exchange.
  • In 2021, GTV increased primarily in International and Canada, while remaining flat in the US. GTV volume increased primarily due to strong price performance across all regions as a result of high demand for used equipment, predominantly in the construction and transportation sectors, and these increases were partially offset by an unfavorable tight supply environment which impacted all regions. In International, GTV volume increases were driven by the lifting of border restrictions, improved economic climate and higher activity in Australia with new auctions, higher number of private treaty deals and a new agricultural event. We also saw strong performance in France with the growth of local satellite yards, partially offset by lower volume in Europe due to supply constraints. In Canada, we saw an increase in volumes across several auctions, most notably within the Canadian agricultural market with the shift to online driving a higher number of events and a larger buyer base. In addition, we saw a strong performance in Toronto throughout the year due to unprecedented demand. Canada also benefited from significant volume increases in RBFS from providing escrow services for private brokered transactions. These increases were partially offset by softer year-over-year performances across our Western region due to supply chain constraints. In the US, we saw strong performances by our US regional sales team and also GovPlanet. US region performance was strong with a $99.0 million pipeline construction equipment event in New Mexico and Texas as well as a $35.0 million construction event in Alabama, partially offset by lower year-over-year performances in our Fort Worth, Orlando, and Las Vegas auctions and our regional combined events. GovPlanet saw higher volumes with the new non-rolling and rolling stock contracts effective June 1, 2021. However, offsetting these increases, total US GTV was flat with lower volume in our US strategic accounts sales team and also the non-repeat of a collector car event. US strategic accounts were down mainly in the finance, OEM and
  • rental sectors as high asset utilization, supply chain challenges and new inventory availability have continued to impact disposition volumes.
