Government Liquidation, LLC Awarded Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Vendor Excellence for Large Business Award

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Washington, DC, January 29, 2003 - The Defense Logistics Agency, a U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) agency, today awarded the DLA Vendor Excellence Award for Large Business to Government Liquidation, LLC, a subsidiary of Liquidity Services, Inc. Government Liquidation was nominated for the award by the Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service (DRMS), a field activity of DLA. The Commercial Venture II (CV2) contract, issued by DRMS in June 2001, calls for Government Liquidation to sell over $23 billion in original acquisition value military surplus through 2008.

The Commercial Venture program is a unique sales contract that has allowed DRMS to greatly reduce overhead costs in the sale of surplus material. Government Liquidation brought state-of-the-art processes to the sale of Department of Defense surplus property through a new web site and technology platform. These technical innovations power online auctions and commodity specific sales supported by comprehensive sales, marketing and media outreach programs. The Vendor Excellence Award specifically recognizes Government Liquidation's superior product quality, on time delivery and superior customer service as a DLA contractor.

"This award is a great honor and a recognition of Government Liquidation's commitment to helping our partner, the U.S. military", said Tom Burton, President of Government Liquidation. "Our employees at military bases throughout the United States strive to provide public sales customers superior service, and maximize the value of military surplus property".

A proprietary Internet auction technology provides the basis for the increased roster of military surplus buyers purchasing property online at www.govliquidation.com. Government Liquidation supports a roster of 18,000 active buyers, 90 percent small businesses, from throughout the U.S. and 81 foreign countries. This customer base is growing at an annualized rate of 70 percent and continues to drive up the final sales price for military surplus property.

"Government Liquidation will continue to make improvements to our sales processes through the duration of this contract", said Mr. Burton. "We are also attentive to the special needs of our partner and stand ready to respond to their requests".

Government Liquidation has returned surplus military property on numerous occasions to support DOD operations in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorism events. Materials returned to the military included furniture to support Pentagon office reconstitution efforts, airport x-ray equipment and chemical warfare suits for support of operations in Afghanistan.

Buyers worldwide participate in 10 - 15 commodity-specific and regional Internet auctions each month online at www.govliquidation.com. The Department of Defense (DoD) surplus property sold at these events includes electronic test equipment, marine equipment, aircraft parts, vehicles, clothing and textiles, medical & dental equipment, machine tools, industrial equipment, material handling equipment and much more.
