12:35 EDTAMZNFTC alleges Amazon billed parents for children's unauthorized in-app charges
Amazon has billed parents and other account holders for millions of dollars in unauthorized in-app charges incurred by children, according to a Federal Trade Commission complaint filed today in federal court. The FTC’s lawsuit seeks a court order requiring refunds to consumers for the unauthorized charges and permanently banning the company from billing parents and other account holders for in-app charges without their consent. According to the complaint, Amazon keeps 30% of all in-app charges. In its complaint, the FTC alleges that Amazon violated the FTC Act by billing parents and other Amazon account holders for charges incurred by their children without the permission of the parent or other account holder. Amazon’s setup allowed children playing these kids’ games to spend unlimited amounts of money to pay for virtual items within the apps such as “coins,” “stars,” and “acorns” without parental involvement.
11:58 EDTLQDTLiquidity Services tumbles after guidance cut for defense agency change
Shares of surplus and salvage asset auction marketplace Liquidity Services (LQDT) are tumbling after the company lowered its third quarter adjusted earnings per share and EBITDA guidance. WHAT'S NEW: Liquidity Services now sees its Q3 adjusted EPS to be below 28c-34c and sees its Q3 adjusted EBITDA to be below its guidance range of $18M-$21M. Liquidity Services announced that its sales of selected rolling stock and other assets under its Surplus Contract with the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency have ceased at the request of DLA pending further review of the impact of regulatory rules. This action has resulted in the cancellation of selected sales during the June quarter as well as future sales of selected assets. The company noted that the DLA action was unrelated to the company’s performance or conduct and that it expects its Q3 total gross merchandise volume to be within its guidance range of $225M-$250M. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During the company's conference call explaining the DLA surplus property items and its preliminary Q3 results, the company said that the DLA's recent decision to cease the sale of a majority of the rolling stock items is unexpected as it has sold these items for many years. Liquidity Services currently handle the affected rolling stock items under the terms of its DoD surplus contract, which extends through February 2015 including all renewal options. In April, Liquidity Services announced that it withdrew from the live auction bidding for the new DLA rolling stock contract. The company said that bidding reached a level that it determined would be economically unsustainable under the terms of the new contract jeopardizing the high level of service it had historically provided the DLA. Liquidity Services said that it feels the material reduction to the rolling stock property flow caused by DLA's recent actions will require further analysis regarding the viability of a standalone rolling stock program beyond February 2015. At this time, the DLA has not announced the details of a final policy regarding cessation of rolling stock sales covered under its existing DoD surplus contract, or the impact on the future of the rolling stock program. The company said it will continue to work closely with DLA. PRICE ACTION: During late morning trading, shares of Liquidity Services fell $2.18, or 14.8%, to $12.51.

Piper Jaffray believes a large part of the $9B in cash eBay expects to repatriate to the U.S. will be used for acquisitions in the payments space.

Piper lists Square, VeriFone (PAY), iZettle and Corduro as companies in the payment space that are within acquisition range for eBay. The firm has an Overweight rating on eBay with a $63 price target.
