Liquidation World Advises Preliminary Q2 Financial Results

BRANTFORD, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 13, 2011) - Liquidation World Inc. (the "Company") (TSX:LQW) announced it intends to release on or before May 18, 2011 its unaudited consolidated financial results for its second three month fiscal quarter ending April 3rd, 2011 and cumulatively for the six months then ended.

Management's preliminary results for these periods, which have not yet been approved by the board of directors, indicates that the net loss incurred in the three months ended April 3rd, 2011 was at least $12.9 million with the cumulative fiscal year to date loss being at least $18.9 million on estimated revenues of $30.0 million for the most recent three months and estimated $73.4 million for the most recent six month period.

The Company is in default of certain financial covenants with its bankers and other secured lenders. The Company continues to communicate on a regular basis with its bankers and other stakeholders to keep them apprised of the Company's efforts to return to positive operational cash flow.

From a cash flow perspective, the Company's Q2 net loss was significantly reduced through changes in working capital items, principally through the reduction in inventory. The lower inventory led to a reduction in bank indebtedness under the terms of the ABL facility.
