Management Discussion
  • Total GTV increased 11% to $1.3 billion and increased 8% when excluding the impact of foreign exchange in Q1 2021. GTV volumes rose partly due to significant auction calendar shifts from the delay in auctions in prior year from the impact of COVID-19 which included (1) Montreal, Canada, (2) Los Angeles, US and (3) Caorso, Italy, which were offset by lower volumes at the Las Vegas, US auction partly impacted by the non-repeat of a large North American trade show occurring at the same time, and the non-repeat of a collector car event. In addition, all regions experienced very strong auction price performance due to high demand for used equipment, in part aided by our digital marketing efforts. In Canada, we saw strong results in the Canadian agricultural market, and in the US we benefited from combining several regional events. We also saw positive year-over-year performance in International as a result of a soft prior quarter in Europe due to the direct impact of COVID-19 and early benefits from the use of new test satellite yards in France, Germany and Australia. These were partially offset by lower volumes realized at the Orlando, US auction due to a dynamic supply environment.
