In the Other Services segment, total revenue was up 29 percent to $51.5 million. Ritchie Bros. Financial Services revenue increased 69 percent, to $19.9 milion.

"As our marketplace vision takes shape, Ritchie Bros. momentum continues with 10 percent GTV growth in the quarter despite a persistently tight supply environment. We are learning and gaining confidence from our growth initiatives and will continue to prudently invest in local yards, sales coverage and services to accelerate our topline while we advance our marketplace technology," said Ann Fandozzi, CEO of Ritchie Bros. 

"We are pleased with our continued strong financial performance in the quarter with service revenue growth significantly outpacing our double digit GTV growth. For example, Ritchie Bros. Financial Services revenue grew 69 percent as our investments in this area continue to bear fruit," said Eric Jacobs, CFO of Ritchie Bros.
