| IAA is a global digital marketplace connecting vehicle buyers and sellers.

Co. provides a suite of auction, logistics and vehicle-processing services. Auctions are typically held weekly for most locations and allow bidders to participate virtually at the auction. Co.'s mobile and online capabilities provide buyers the flexibility in their purchasing options, exposing vehicles to bidders and allowing bidders to participate in a variety of auctions. The IAA YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the IAA YTD return page and across the coverage universe of our site,
is a measure of the total return for a given investment year-to-date for the current calendar year
(up to the end of prior trading session). Arguably, choosing the current calendar year for a measurement
period is on the one hand completely arbitrary, but on the other hand a year-to-date look can be extremely
useful in the context of our country's tax system which taxes gains and income on a calendar year basis.
Thus, researching Year-To-Date Returns is good practice for investors — whether IAA YTD return or other benchmarks/peers
— and when doing so it is also important to factor in dividends, because a financial instrument's YTD return is
more than just the change in price if that instrument pays a dividend or coupon. Our website aims to empower investors
by performing the IAA YTD return calculation (with any dividends reinvested as applicable), and to provide a
coverage universe of many stocks and ETFs to be able to compare YTD returns.
