Liquidity Services, Inc. Receives Contract Extension For DoD Surplus Useable Property Sales

Liquidity Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: LQDT), which operates leading online marketplaces for corporate and government surplus and salvage assets, today announced that the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) has exercised the second of two potential 12-month extension periods under its Surplus Useable Property sales contract (Surplus Contract) with Liquidity Services to sell surplus assets of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

Through a unilateral contract modification, the Surplus Contract's performance period has been extended through February 13, 2014. During the extended performance period, the DoD will continue to use Liquidity Services as the primary channel for the disposition of useable surplus property that is approved by the DoD for sale to the public.

Under the Surplus Contract, Liquidity Services manages the receipt, storage, marketing, and disposition of all useable surplus personal property generated by DoD installations throughout the United States. Assets are offered for sale through Liquidity Services' online auction marketplace, GovLiquidation.com.

"We are pleased to announce the extension of the DLA contract for the sale of surplus assets. This builds upon our 11 years of proven experience as an innovative and trusted solution provider in support of a critical government mission to keep surplus and idle inventories moving out of more than 200 DoD facilities nationwide in a secure and efficient manner," said Bill Angrick, Chairman and CEO of Liquidity Services. "Over the past decade-plus, Liquidity Services has sold close to two billion pounds of scrap material and over 55 million DoD surplus items through its marketplace www.govliquidation.com, generating over half a billion dollars back to the U.S. Treasury and consistently exceeding historic expectations. Our solution not only protects national security interests through safety and compliance measures, but also leads the way in advancing government sustainability programs."
