Liquidity Services, Inc. Receives Contract Extension for the Sale of U.S. Defense Department Surplus Property

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 15, 2008–Liquidity Services,
Inc. (LSI), a leading online auction marketplace for wholesale,
surplus and salvage assets, today announced that LSI and the Defense
Reutilization and Marketing Service (the “DRMS”) of the U.S.
Department of Defense entered into a Supplemental Agreement (the
“Amendment”) relating to the Commercial Venture II (CV-II) (Surplus
Contract) on May 13, 2008. Under the Amendment, the Surplus Contract’s
performance period has been extended by 180 days to December 19, 2008
subject to a mutual termination for convenience clause. During this
extension period, the DOD will continue to use this contract as the
primary channel for the disposition of usable surplus property that is
approved for sale to the public. The terms of the contract extension
also increase LSI’s profit sharing percentage to 39.5% for property
received during the extension period.

The principal terms of the modification to the Surplus Contract
are described in an 8-K filed today with the SEC. All other principal
terms of the original contract remain in effect.

LSI does not believe the Surplus Contract modification will have a
material effect on its fiscal year 2008 results.
