KAR Auction Services, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Sanjeev Mehra Elected to Board of Directors

•Revenue was impacted by lower volumes throughout the wholesale remarketing industry
•105% increase in North American digital dealer-to-dealer volumes; 19% growth when including BacklotCars pre-acquisition 2020 volumes
•Reduction in unrealized gains on investments contributes to net loss in the third quarter

Carmel, IN, November 2, 2021 - KAR Auction Services, Inc. (NYSE: KAR), today reported its third quarter financial results for the period ended September 30, 2021.

"I am pleased with our third quarter performance, particularly given the extremely constrained vehicle supply our industry continues to face," said Peter Kelly, CEO of KAR Global. "We continued to experience solid growth in our digital dealer-to-dealer segment and once again saw record numbers of total active sellers and buyers participate in our marketplaces. Our continued efforts to refine our operating model toward a more digital future contributed to stronger unit economics in the quarter while also positioning KAR for accelerated growth once industry volumes begin to recover."

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights
•Total revenue for the third quarter of 2021 was $535.2 million, down 10% compared with $593.6 million for the third quarter of 2020.
•Net loss for the third quarter of 2021 of $1.0 million, or $(0.10) per diluted share, compared with net income of $47.1 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2020.
•Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 was $96.6 million, compared with $139.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.
•Operating adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.08 for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared with $0.45 for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.
•Year-over-year increase in our North American digital dealer-to-dealer marketplaces of 105% and 19% year-over-year growth when including BacklotCars pre-acquisition 2020 volumes.
•ADESA gross profit per vehicle sold increased 10% to $274 for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared with $249 for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Investments in Early-Stage Automotive Companies
The company invests in certain early-stage automotive companies and funds that relate to the automotive industry. We believe these investments have resulted in the expansion of relationships in the vehicle remarketing industry. Realized gains on these investments were $10.0 million and $27.2 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively. The company had a net reduction in unrealized gains on investment securities of


$20.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and a net increase in unrealized gains on investment securities of $10.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Sanjeev Mehra Elected to Board of Directors
The company also announced the election of Sanjeev Mehra to KAR's Board of Directors. Mehra currently serves as managing partner of Periphas Capital, which he co-founded after a 31-year career at Goldman, Sachs & Co. Mehra held a number of leadership roles during his tenure at Goldman Sachs, including serving as vice chairman of the global private equity business, as co-head of US private equity, and as head of its operating committee. Mehra, who has served on the boards of more than 25 companies, previously served on KAR's Board from 2007 to 2013.

"Sanjeev brings deep experience investing in and advising companies spanning many different industries, and has a strong track record fostering growth, transformational change and operational efficiency," said Kelly. "We are thrilled to welcome Sanjeev back to KAR's Board and will benefit from his insights and expertise as we capture the opportunity ahead of us."

KAR Auction Services, Inc.
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, operating adjusted net income and operating adjusted net income 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 and operating adjusted net income 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 and operating adjusted net income per share may include adjustments for certain other charges.
EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, operating adjusted net income and operating adjusted net income 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.
The following table reconciles EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) for the periods presented:

There was no income tax benefit related to the contingent consideration adjustment or the goodwill and other intangibles impairment because these items were not deductible for income tax purposes.
