09:20 EDTWMTLiquidity Services estimate cuts possible on Wal-Mart fight, says Janney Capital
After Liquidity Services (LQDT) disclosed that Wal-Mart (WMT) terminated its return agreement and that the two are now in dispute over the deal, Janney Capital noted Liquidity 's recent 10K filing indicated that Wal-Mart accounted for 11% of FY14 gross merchandise volume, including Commercial Capital assets. Janney estimates the full year EBITDA impact from the contract to be somewhere below $10M, but said there is a potential for further estimate cuts given the dispute. The firm maintains its Neutral rating on Liquidity Services shares.
09:13 EDTWMTLiquidity Services reports Walmart terminates return agreement
Liquidity Services (LQDT) had previously acquired from ILJ Enterprises its business of purchasing closeouts, excess merchandise and customer returns for resale to retailers, wholesalers, and other third parties and consumers. In connection with the acquisition, the company, through one of its subsidiaries, assumed ILJ’s rights and obligations with Wal-Mart Stores (WMT). Under the Wal-Mart agreement, Liquidity Services has the exclusive right to purchase certain consumer products from Wal-Mart that have been removed from the sales stream of Wal-Mart’s retail operations. On December 1, Wal-Mart provided Liquidity Services written notice terminating the Wal-Mart Agreement, effective December 8. The termination notice alleges that the company failed to comply with certain provisions under the Wal-Mart agreement with respect to service level requirements and restrictions on the disposition of merchandise, Liquidity disclosed in a regulatory filing late Friday. The company disputes these allegations and is contesting the termination of the agreement with Wal-Mart. The company had been in negotiations with Wal-Mart to address Wal-Mart’s failure to honor the company’s exclusive right to purchase selected merchandise from Wal-Mart but was unable to reach a satisfactory resolution. The company is currently evaluating all of its options, reserves all rights with respect to this matter and will continue to seek appropriate relief from Wal-Mart for its failure to honor the company’s exclusive rights to purchase selected merchandise and any related actual damages the company has incurred. The company does not believe that the purported termination of the Wal-Mart Agreement will result in the company being unable to meet its financial guidance for its first fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2014, Liquidity Services stated.

09:19 EDTWMTDollar General says remains committed to purchase of Family Dollar
Dollar General Corporation (DG) issued the following statement in response to comments made by Dollar Tree (DLTR) regarding its view of potential store divestitures that may be required by the FTC in either a Dollar Tree/Family Dollar Stores (FDO) or a Dollar General/Family Dollar combination. Dollar General’s documents and data tell a very different story from that contained in the press release issued today by Dollar Tree. As Dollar General previously has stated, Walmart (WMT), not Family Dollar, is the primary driver regarding Dollar General’s strategic pricing decisions, and more than 90% of Dollar General’s SKUs are nationally priced. Dollar General is confident that its approach to strategic and pricing decisions is both correct and superior to that of Family Dollar and Dollar General has no intention of adopting a flawed strategy -- either now or after an acquisition of Family Dollar -- that it believes would impair its ability to compete with Walmart and lead to inferior financial performance. Dollar General is actively engaged in discussions with the FTC regarding the extent of potential divestitures that would be required in connection with an acquisition of Family Dollar and has been making good progress. Over the past few weeks, Dollar General has provided the FTC with tens of thousands of documents supporting the above facts and its broad view of competition. There is no reason to believe that the FTC would take into account only Family Dollar’s documents and data or afford them greater significance than Dollar General's own evidence. As stated in Dollar General's press release of December 4, Dollar General will continue to work with the FTC and expects to provide an update in sufficient time to allow Family Dollar shareholders to review such information prior to the Family Dollar shareholders’ meeting now scheduled for December 23.
