Liquidity Services Inc. Analyst Notes
On April 3, 2014, Liquidity Services Inc. (Liquidity Services) announced that it withdrew from the live auction bidding for a contract with the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to purchase, manage and sell non-rolling stock surplus assets of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). The announcement came a day after the Company informed that it emerged as apparent high bidder for the contract with a bid equal to 4.35% of the DoD's original acquisition value (OAV). Citing the reason for withdrawal from the bidding, the Company stated that "Bidding reached a level that Liquidity Services determined would be economically unsustainable under the terms of the new contract, jeopardizing the high level of service it has historically provided the agency client." The stock tanked 11.98% following the announcement on April 3, 2014, to close at $18.36, taking the total decline to 29.52% for last three trading sessions. Since the contracting process is not complete yet, the Company refrained from providing a revised future earnings guidance, but expects the price for the non-rolling stock contract is expected to increase from 1.8% to 4.35% of OAV, resulting in significantly higher Cost of Goods Sold in FY 2015 and beyond.

Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the ...

In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...

This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
