Defense Logistics Agency awards extension of contract performance
period combined with modification of certain principal terms
WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jun. 9, 2015–
Liquidity Services (NASDAQ: LQDT), a global solution provider in the
reverse supply chain with the world’s largest marketplace for business
surplus, today announced it has been awarded a contract extension by the
U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) for its Scrap Property sales
contract (Scrap Contract). Through this amendment, the performance
period has been extended by a base term of nine months with three
three-month additional option periods, commencing on June 9, 2015.
During this period, Liquidity Services will continue to serve as the
sales channel for the disposition of DLA scrap property that is approved
for public sale.
Additional modifications have been made to the principal terms of the
Contract pricing will be adjusted to reflect a 65% profit sharing
distribution to the DLA.
The DLA may elect to terminate portions of the contract by location
with a 90-day notification required no sooner than February 1, 2016.
The DLA may elect to terminate portions of the contract by certain
commodity categories with a 60-day notification required no sooner
than October 1, 2015.
Under the Scrap Contract, Liquidity Services manages the receipt,
storage, marketing and disposition of virtually all scrap property
generated by DoD installations throughout the continental United States,
Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Guam including: base materials and scrap
metals like ferrous and non-ferrous metals, nickel alloy, electronic
scrap, rubber, paper and in rare occasions, compost, cooking grease, and
recycled asphalt. Assets are offered for sale through Liquidity
Services’ online auction marketplace, http://www.GovLiquidation.com,
to a global buyer base.
The extension of the performance period and the modification to
principal terms of the Scrap Contract is described in an 8-K to be filed
today with the SEC.
Liquidity Services does not believe the Scrap Contract extension will
have a material effect on its third quarter fiscal year 2015 guidance.
