Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.
On October 11, 2017, the Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services (“DLA”) published a Request for Technical Proposals (“RFTP”) and draft Invitation for Bids (“IFB”) for the sale of surplus, useable non-rolling stock property. The DLA is awarding two term contracts, each with a base term of two years and four one-year options to extend. One term contract will include all property west of the Mississippi River, including Alaska, Hawaii, and Guam. The other term contract will include all property east of the Mississippi River, including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
On December 5, 2017, the DLA determined that Liquidity Services, Inc. (the “Company”) was not the apparent high bidder for either of the two contracts. Final contract awards are subject to a protest period and a pre-award survey by the DLA regarding the bidder’s ability to satisfactorily perform the work in accordance with their technical proposal.
The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K shall be considered “furnished” pursuant to Item 7.01 of Form 8-K and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section or Sections 11 and 12(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any of the Company’s reports or filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, whether made before or after the date hereof, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such report or filing.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
