Ritchie Bros. To Conduct Unreserved Public Auction In Conjunction With Sunbelt Ag Expo On October 19, 2012

Consignments now being accepted—17 2011 John Deere MFWD tractors already featured in the auction

MOULTRIE, GA, Aug. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers (NYSE and TSX: RBA), the world's largest auctioneer of farm, construction and other heavy equipment, will conduct an unreserved public auction in conjunction with the Sunbelt Ag Expo in Moultrie, GA on October 19, 2012. A large selection of agricultural equipment will be sold in the auction, including 17 2011 John Deere MFWD tractors—each item will be sold to the highest bidder regardless of price—without minimum bids or reserve prices. Bidders can participate in the auction in-person, online in real time at or by proxy.

"Conducting auctions in conjunction with trade shows provides great convenience for our customers—they can participate and network at the Sunbelt Ag Expo and then stay for our auction and purchase all the equipment they need in a single trip," said Darrin Hogeboom, Regional Sales Manager, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers. "It also gets more eyes on the equipment of our sellers—earlier this year we held a Tipton, CA auction in conjunction with the World Ag Expo and it attracted more bidders than the site had ever seen, which resulted in record gross auction proceeds for the site."

The Sunbelt Ag Expo will take place on October 16 - 18, 2012 and annually attracts close to 100,000 visitors. Ritchie Bros. will be participating in the Expo (Booth #189 & 190, Section B-4) and conducting its unreserved auction the day after the Expo on Friday, October 19, starting at 9 a.m.

"We are excited to have Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers as an exhibitor at the 2012 Sunbelt Ag Expo—their experience and knowledge of the agricultural industry makes them a true asset to our event," said Chip Blalock, Executive Director of the Sunbelt Ag Expo. "Over our three day event—from October 16 through 18—visitors of the Sunbelt Ag Expo will explore new product lines and capitalize on educational opportunities from university and college research specialists. Then, to cap the week off, attendees can head over to Ritchie Bros. on October 19 and participate in their unreserved auction. We hope it will prove to be a very informative and successful week for the North American agricultural industry."
