John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Thanks Arif. Well, good morning and thank you all for joining us on our third quarter earnings call. As we noted in our Q2 call in early August, our third quarter started off strong with continued improvement in assignment volumes and units sold along with the continuation of record level revenue per unit that we had experienced in the second quarter. As the third quarter progressed, we continue to see strength across our business, as both assignments and units sold continued to improve at a greater rate than we had anticipated.

In fact, we exited the third quarter with assignments down only slightly from pre COVID-19 levels. As we also noted in our Q2 call, we thought revenue per unit strength might moderate in Q3 but that did not prove to be the case. Similar to Q2, we ended Q3 with revenue per unit near record levels. As a result of these stronger than anticipated trends and the benefits we're seeing from our margin expansion plan, we saw a meaningful improvement in our overall results in Q3. With 8.8% growth in organic adjusted EBITDA versus Q3 2019, even despite a decline of 4.7% in organic revenue versus last year.

As a follow-up to our discussion in the Q2 call, we continue to believe that some of the underlying drivers of higher revenue per unit can be attributed to: First, the additional revenue that's associated with the full rollout of our digital-only auction platform; second, the positive impact from new products and tools that we are now offering buyers such as 360 View and Feature Tour, as part of the Interact platform; third, the positive impact that less supply may have on bidding activity and proceeds per vehicle and; fourth, higher used car prices.

We are feeling more and more confident that the impact from moving to an enhanced digital only auction model and the tools and information we are providing as part of the Interact platform are having a more significant and sustained impact on proceeds, revenue per unit and importantly, returns for our seller partners.

At this point it is a bit unclear to the degree to which reductions in the supply of vehicles is impacting proceeds and revenue per unit but we do believe that elevated used car prices is having a positive impact. The September Manheim Used Car Index was up 15.2% versus the prior year. Another notable bright spot in the quarter was the strong growth in our non-insurance business which was primarily the result of a targeted focus from our sales force.

Now let me shift gears to review our progress against our strategic growth priorities. With regards to our margin expansion plan, following on the successful rollout of the Buyer Digital Transformation in early April in the U.S., we accelerated the transition to online only auctions in Canada in late July and I'm happy to report the transition was without incident. Similar to the U.S., we are seeing the benefits from the deployment of 360 View in both Canada and in the U.K.

As for the other aspects of our margin expansion plan, we remain on track with the timing and expected benefits from our initiatives around towing optimization, pricing optimization and Branch Process Improvement and Efficiency. I'd like to turn now to talk about our focused effort on enhancing our buyer network and their experience. As we have transitioned the business to a fully digital model, we have been focused on a continued engagement with our buyer network and remain laser focused on further elevating the buyer customer experience that we deliver across our platform. We are serving our buyers regularly with both quantitative and qualitative metrics and incorporating their feedback into our platform and service enhancements.

As an example of this feedback we recently have expanded our payment options including among other changes, the addition of PayPal which provides increased purchasing power and flexibility for our buyers. While COVID-19 initially had impacted buyer attendance, we have seen steady improvement in attendance this quarter.

Domestic buyer attendance was above prior levels throughout the third quarter and by the end of Q3 international buyer attendance also exceeded the levels of one year ago. In addition, at quarter end, the levels of active international buyers was up nearly 15% versus the same time last year. As we look ahead, we will continue to focus on enhancing our international buyer network along with making further progress on our other strategic growth initiatives.

Now shifting to talk about our CAT response efforts, there have been several hurricanes and tropical storms, primarily in the Southeastern U.S. over the last couple of months. We have done an excellent job of serving our provider customers during this period and the feedback that we have received from them has been extremely positive.

In addition to taking advantage of our deep pool of towing resources, as well as leveraging our NASCAR partnership, our flexible capacity model provided safe, accessible acreage and towing capacity where and when it was needed and in close proximity to the affected areas. With our customer's safety and convenience in mind, we established CAT yards in locations that ensured vehicles would not have to be moved far distances.

Our employees put an incredible amount of planning and dedication toward these events and I continue to thank them for their efforts. I'm very proud of our teams and the progress we have made on our initiatives throughout 2020 despite a very uncertain macro backdrop. We're a little over a month into Q4 and continue to see positive trends. We were also mindful of the uncertainty that remains with the pandemic.

With that, I'll now turn the call over to Vance to review our financial results. Vance?

Vance Johnston -- Chief Financial Officer

Thanks, John and good morning everyone. As John discussed, our third quarter results were stronger than we had anticipated as favorable industry trends drove record level revenue per unit and we continue to benefit from our margin expansion plan and other strategic initiatives. Before I touch on our current trends, let me first review the key financial highlights of our Q3 performance. I will focus my discussion today on our adjusted non-GAAP results and just touch on some key highlights. Please see today's press release for more details on our Q3 financial performance and our methodology in calculating non-GAAP results.

For the first quarter, consolidated revenues decreased 5.4% to $338 million from $357.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Organic revenues which excludes the impact of our DDI acquisition, foreign currency and a non-cash revenue adjustment in the prior year, declined 4.7% to $336.9 million. For the quarter, volumes declined approximately 20.4% primarily due to the impact of COVID-19 and fewer miles traveled.

This was partially offset by higher revenue per unit as John already reviewed. Branch inventory increased by 1.2% versus the prior year. Looking at our geographic performance, both our U.S. and international segments have lower volumes and higher revenue per unit with the International business actually growing slightly due to higher purchase vehicle revenue in Canada.

Gross profit increased to $138.3 million from $136 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Gross margin increased 280 basis points in the quarter driven primarily by the benefits of both higher revenue per unit and the cost reductions achieved from our Buyer Digital Transformation as well as from other cost reductions specific to COVID-19.

SG&A expenses were $34.9 million compared to $38.9 million in the prior year. Adjusted SG&A expenses were $34.5 million, a decrease of 6.8% compared to $37 million in the prior year period, driven by a reduction in discretionary spending across the organization including items such as travel and meetings as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are extremely focused on cost containment and continue to find ways to be more efficient. Adjusted EBITDA increased by 4.7%, to $103.8 million from $99.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Excluding the impact of foreign currency, DDI and the $3.6 million non-cash revenue adjustment in the prior-year, organic adjusted EBITDA increased by 8.8% to $103.9 million from the third quarter of fiscal 2020.

Interest expense declined by $4.2 million to $13.3 million compared to $17.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. The decline was primarily driven by lower interest rates on floating rate debt as well as a slightly lower debt balance. The interest rate on our term loan is currently 2.44%, which is over 200 basis points lower than the third quarter of last year. The effective tax rate was 25.5% versus 27.3% in the third quarter of fiscal 2019.

The lower effective tax rate in 2020 was primarily due to the benefit from certain tax optimization initiatives. Net income increased to $52.8 million from $41.8 million in the prior year. Adjusted net income increased by 17% to $55.7 million or $0.41 per diluted share compared to $47.6 million or $0.35 per diluted share in the third quarter of fiscal 2019.

Adjusted net income increased more than adjusted EBITDA relative to the prior year due to the benefits of lower interest expense and a lower tax rate, as well as a lower level of amortization. Turning now to our cash flow and balance sheet. Capital expenditures for the quarter were $19.8 million compared to $18.9 million in the prior year.

Capital expenditures in the quarter were at a higher rate than earlier in the year due to a catch-up in certain maintenance projects, as well as incremental spending related to real estate projects. Our balance sheet remains very strong and we are excited as we exited the third quarter with total liquidity of over $578 million which is over $300 million higher than our year-end level.

We ended the period with a leverage ratio of 2.8 times, which is down from 3.2 times at the time of the spend. We remain very comfortable with our total liquidity and leverage. During the first nine months of 2020, we generated free cash flows of over $223 million. As we had noted in our last call, we saw a reversal of the benefits from the deferral of certain cash tax payments this quarter that we expected, but still generated positive free cash flow for the quarter due to the aforementioned improvement in operating results and EBITDA, along with improved working capital management.

We made good strides in further improving working capital including extended payment terms. As noted in our earnings release, given the continued uncertainty regarding COVID-19, we are not providing guidance today. However, quarter-to-date, we have seen assignments, units sold and revenue per unit all consistent with the levels we saw exiting Q3.

With that, we'll open up the call to questions. Operator?

Questions and Answers:

Operator

Thank you. We will now begin the question-and-answer session. [Operator Instructions]. Today's first question comes from Craig Kennison with Baird. Please go ahead.

Craig Kennison -- Robert W. Baird -- Analyst

Hi. Thanks so much. Question for you on your innovation here. You released a few press releases on some patents to have been awarded, I'm curious if you can explain the importance of the Tower Dispatch and also the auction management patents. And then help us understand whether that innovation is something for which you can get paid, either through higher ARPU or higher fees.

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Great. Craig, good morning, it's John. Yeah, the patents that we've -- that we've announced are really around the processes that we've -- that we've put in to drive higher revenue, higher recoveries for our sellers and better service to our buyers. So they're not in and of themselves -- we didn't do them thinking that we're going to monetize them specifically, but we just think they're all part of our overall offerings that we can continue to drive better and better results for our buyers and sellers.

Craig Kennison -- Robert W. Baird -- Analyst

Okay, thanks. And then just on the non-insurance side, it sounds like you had a solid growth there. Are the economics in that business as good as your insurance business or just based on the nature of your -- some of your relationships, are those economics not quite as good?

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

So the non-insurance, there is a wide, there is a wide breadth of customers in that, everything from charities to car dealers around [Phonetic] car companies and the profitability profile also stands at based on the value of the vehicles. But all in, we -- it's, we believe that it's a strong element of our proposition and our growth. We think it's a good business and we're going to continue to capitalize upon it.

Craig Kennison -- Robert W. Baird -- Analyst

Great, thanks. I'll get back in the queue.

Operator

And our next question today comes from Bret Jordan with Jefferies. Please go ahead.

Bret Jordan -- Jefferies LLC -- Analyst

Hey, good morning guys.

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Hi, Bret. Good morning, Bret.

Bret Jordan -- Jefferies LLC -- Analyst

Hi. You called out your towing relationships in response to CAT events, you've talked about towing costs maybe being one of your margin drivers, could you give us any numbers year-over-year as far as your towing expense?

Vance Johnston -- Chief Financial Officer

Yeah. Hey Bret, this is Vance. We don't -- we don't typically break out towing expense. I think what we have said is, is that it's a very large contributor to cost of sales. So, in terms of happening [Phonetic] [Indecipherable] how relevant it is, well, we haven't given out specific numbers related to that. But you know, as -- as we commented on, it is clearly part of our margin expansion plan as we said, we have initiatives in that optimizing towing expense and reducing that and we continue to be on track with that.

Bret Jordan -- Jefferies LLC -- Analyst

Okay. Probably a similar response to this one, but could you give us any color as far as the expansion of the international buyer base? You sort of also called out that they were up 15% year-over-year, but could you give us sort of a benchmark for the volumes?

Vance Johnston -- Chief Financial Officer

Yeah. Somewhat similar, Bret. I think we tried to give as much color as we could. So I think the fact that during a -- the COVID-19 pandemic that we're able to kind of see that kind of increase bodes well for the actions that we're taking in developing our global buyer base, which as we commented before are -- a big portion of those are around digital marketing, search engine optimization, things of that nature. So can't give anymore specific numbers than what we've provided. But we did say that because obviously we feel really good about the progress that we're making.

Bret Jordan -- Jefferies LLC -- Analyst

Okay. And then one final one on this one should be that, that the drive of revenue per unit, is the average age of the vehicle that was being totaled this year significantly lower year-over-year? I'm just sort of thinking about what the insurance companies are doing that is driving this higher used vehicle values? The demographic of the car changing in addition to the underlying Manheim going up?

Vance Johnston -- Chief Financial Officer

You know, we haven't seen anything yet that's materially different in terms of average age of the vehicle than maybe what we would have saw last year, obviously that's a contributing factor as you alluded to. But also, I think, Bret when you are also implying around kind of younger vehicles and being more apt to be told as well, but in terms of the average age across the span of our universe of total loss, we haven't seen anything that's significantly different at this point.

Bret Jordan -- Jefferies LLC -- Analyst

Great, thank you.

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Thanks Bret.

Operator

And your next question today comes from Daniel Imbro with Stephens Inc. Please go ahead.

Daniel Imbro -- Stephens Inc. -- Analyst

Yes, hey good morning guys. Thanks for taking our questions. John, I wanted to start on a follow-up on the non-insurance business. It appears from your social media that there's been more of an emphasis on fleet and rental volume in the last few months, I think you mentioned it's the focus for your sales force. Can you talk about where you're seeing that growth, is it non-insurance? And then maybe how different is that from six months to 12 months ago within the business?

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Yeah. I mean it is, as I said earlier, there is a variety of areas of growth there. I mean the fleet and rental, we've focused some of our tools and as we've moved to this digital platform, we've been able to build some things that are very specific to that market that makes it more attractive to them. So we've been successful at that. Versus last year, I think we have done some restructuring of our teams to get them more focused on that segment, and I think we're bearing the fruits of that.

Daniel Imbro -- Stephens Inc. -- Analyst

Great. And then, you know, to follow-up on Bret's question on the revenue per unit, up almost 20%, you mentioned in your prepared remarks some of it was driven by initiatives such as online fees of ancillary services that you guys offer. Can you maybe help us quantify that or help us parse out how much of the increase is being driven by IAA's specific initiatives in your opinion? Like what can you quantify based on the changes you guys are making?

Vance Johnston -- Chief Financial Officer

Yeah -- no, it's very difficult to quantify that, because as you can imagine what we're seeing play out in the first part [Phonetic] as we've alluded to for revenues per unit were at record levels, and it is tough to quantify the degree to which the things that we've done, which we believe are definitely having a positive impact, things like the new auction, digital-only auction for our platform, things like 360 View, Feature Tour, in August we even did a pilot sometime back on 360 View we commented on the fact that they were having an impact of between $300 and $600 per vehicle in terms of proceeds, not revenue per unit, but proceeds per vehicle. So you can certainly, if you think about that, that can give you some indication.

We do continue to believe that 360 View and other tools that we've added since then are all -- have been a positive impact, but what we don't know it's very difficult to ascertain is the degree to which supply demand characteristics are impacting it and as we've also alluded to, in addition to supply and demand is used car prices.

And so it's difficult to kind of calibrate how much of each one of those. We do feel that used car prices are having an impact as they've kind of went up, but that's impacting what are buyers willing to buy for a car, pay for a car all things considered equal, but trying to figure out how much of the difference that makes is very challenging, as you can probably appreciate.

Daniel Imbro -- Stephens Inc. -- Analyst

Yeah. Nevertheless [Phonetic], that's helpful color. And then last one from me, just to clarify on the inventory growth, I think you said it up about 1% at the end of quarter, did the recent hurricanes have a quantifiable impact on that or maybe asked a different way, what would inventory growth be if we excluded catastrophic volume from this year and last year, just trying to get a sense of kind of where run rate volume is ex, some of the noise from hurricanes.

Vance Johnston -- Chief Financial Officer

Yeah. So I think the best way to think about it is, there has been obviously a number of storms this year, but in terms of the volume of cars that have come from those storms, it's actually been relatively low. So we haven't had any big dots [Phonetic] for those parts of the country, there hasn't been any extraordinarily significant storms, you know that have caused, you know, at a massive amount of vehicles, there has been some volume. But the volume relatively speaking has been not so significant.

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

And the same as last, the last year, the base compared to last year there is relatively small as well Dan.

Vance Johnston -- Chief Financial Officer

Yeah. That's right. Yeah, so if you looked at last year would have been not as many storms, but a similar low level of volume from catastrophe units and so that's what we're seeing. So it is not having a big impact.

Daniel Imbro -- Stephens Inc. -- Analyst

That's great guys. I appreciate all the color and best of luck.

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Thank you.

Vance Johnston -- Chief Financial Officer

Thanks Dan.

Operator

And our next question today comes from Stephanie Benjamin with Truist. Please go ahead.

Stephanie Benjamin -- Truist Financial -- Analyst

Hi, good morning.

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Good morning, Steph.

Vance Johnston -- Chief Financial Officer

Good morning, Steph.

Stephanie Benjamin -- Truist Financial -- Analyst

Just to actually follow up on the last question there, I'm curious on how just the inventory number up 1% but still seeing assignments down slightly pre COVID-levels. Can you maybe discuss the discrepancy between those two metrics?

Vance Johnston -- Chief Financial Officer

Yeah. So, yes, there is a couple of things that drive inventory levels. So one is obviously the amount of assignments that we get and so we've seen assignments come way back up during the third quarter. But in addition to that is also the conversion rates and also kind of the time between when it is assigned and when the unit is sold. And so, so it has, we're certainly happy and pleased with the fact that we've seen a lot more assignments, we've seen units sold come back up with that as well.

But we have seen maybe a little bit of decline in some areas around conversion rates, nothing significant, but that's been one element in addition to the increase in assignments that's kind of resulted in inventory being up, which is a good thing because as we go into the fourth quarter, that means we have more units available for sale.

Stephanie Benjamin -- Truist Financial -- Analyst

Got it. Helpful. And then on some recent announcements for some new yard expansion, [Technical Issues] north east. Could you maybe talk about -- on why you chose these specific [Technical Issues] expansion projects. And then what's really in your pipeline for additional opportunities for expansion [Technical Issues]. Thank you.

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Stephanie, I think you're breaking up a little bit, but I think the intent, the sense of your question was -- is that, it was around other real estate projects. Is that correct?

Stephanie Benjamin -- Truist Financial -- Analyst

Yes, I'm sorry. Just I think some of the most recent announcements have been primarily in the north east. So just wondering why you chose specifically those yards and kind of what's your outlook for additional expansions going forward?

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Yeah, Stephanie. So the -- I think we've talked about the process of identifying, developing getting a new piece of property into place can take six months, nine months, 12 months, 18 months. So some of this is just the timing of when these particular projects actually got live. We're able to take them live. We've got a deep pipeline of expansion. We look very closely at where we're growing, where our customers are growing, where we see opportunities for growth and we're looking at additional property where we need it.

So it's -- it is an ongoing process that we go through and we will continue to invest in real estate again where we need it and where we believe we've got opportunities and again where our customers are growing as well.

Stephanie Benjamin -- Truist Financial -- Analyst

Got it. Thank you so much.

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Thanks Stephanie.

Vance Johnston -- Chief Financial Officer

Thanks Stephanie.

And our next question today comes from Bob Labick with CJS Securities. Please go ahead.

Peter Lukas -- CJS Securities -- Analyst

Yes, good morning, it's Pete Lukas for Bob. Just on a macro level, can you talk about from a business industry perspective when you think that higher ASPs will lead to higher total loss frequencies? And I think you had said there had been no change in total loss frequencies now, but do you expect that to change?

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Yeah, I'm not sure we said that there has been no change in frequency, I think there was a question around the average age of vehicles, but... [Speech Overlap]

Peter Lukas -- CJS Securities -- Analyst

Okay.

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Yeah. So I do think the most recent data from CCC I think picked up.

Vance Johnston -- Chief Financial Officer

Yeah, I think what we're seeing is a trend with total off, maybe this can help you [Indecipherable] that, that continues to go up there's some seasonal adjustments to that, but in general, it tends to kind of follow the trend it has been, which is continuing to increase. So we're not -- we're not seeing anything much different with that at this point.

Peter Lukas -- CJS Securities -- Analyst

Great. And last one from me. You talked about the increase in the international buyers. Is the percentage of units sold internationally now greater or smaller than pre-pandemic? Given the increase that you've had.

Vance Johnston -- Chief Financial Officer

You know, I don't think we've broken it now between what I can -- we can say two things, one, as we commented is that during the pandemic, we had really good response from buyers, domestic buyers. That was a very good thing during the pandemic, as you wanted to expect the onset of the pandemic international buyers participation were down a little bit as you have just very difficult situation.

And since then it has bounced back really nicely and we continue to have a good traction with our domestic buyers and International has picked up as we alluded to in our call and we feel really good about that as well.

Peter Lukas -- CJS Securities -- Analyst

Very helpful. Thank you.

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Thanks, Pete.

[Operator Instructions]. Today's next question comes from Gary Prestopino with Barrington Research. Please go ahead.

Gary Prestopino -- Barrington Research -- Analyst

Good morning all.

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Hi.

Gary Prestopino -- Barrington Research -- Analyst

John, I want to just make sure I'm clear on this, when you're doing non-insurance vehicles, they are all total losses. Is that correct or am I wrong there?

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

They are predominantly damaged vehicles, but it's not -- we do sell clear title vehicles for non-insurance sellers without question.

Gary Prestopino -- Barrington Research -- Analyst

All right. And can you give us an idea of the growth of that metric in the quarter-end, or the percentage change or the percentage of non-insurance this quarter versus last year at this time?

Vance Johnston -- Chief Financial Officer

You know, with the -- Gary, that's not something that we're providing as a metric. However, what we did say is that we had really good growth of non-insurance in the quarter. So I think from that comment you can -- one would be able to ascertain that insurance is -- non-insurance rather as a percentage of our total mix would be up somewhat.

Gary Prestopino -- Barrington Research -- Analyst

Okay. But by the rules of your spin-off, you cannot go into the dealer market, is that correct and sell a whole car right?

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Yeah. I mean, it's again public documented, it's not quite that simple, Gary. There are -- there are elements where we can continue to grow and there are some royalty payments that would be made if we exceed certain thresholds.

Gary Prestopino -- Barrington Research -- Analyst

Okay, great. And then lastly, just with the new services that you put in -- enveloped in the Interact, I guess it's called, when you talk to your buyers, which one of these services do they cite it as being extremely helpful in helping to make a decision whether to bid on a vehicle?

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Yeah, I mean it's -- I don't know if there is one, I think we track and measure at several different points from registration right through bidding and buying and we're seeing improvement in all of them. I think the overall, the level of information that we're now providing through Interact, whether it's 360 View or Feature Tour or enhanced vehicle detail page, if we are derisking the transaction and they appreciate that, that gives them the ability to bid with more confidence, the more transparency that we can provide, and I think generally I would say that's been the best feedback that we've received around Interact.

Gary Prestopino -- Barrington Research -- Analyst

Okay. Thank you very much.

John Kett -- Chief Executive Officer and President

Thanks Gary.
