Liquidation World Increases Credit Facility to $25 Million

BRANTFORD, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 9, 2010) - Liquidation World Inc. (TSX:LQW) today announces that it has increased its current credit facility with its senior lender, the Royal Bank of Canada by $5,000,000. This asset-backed lending facility provides the company with up to a $25,000,000 facility, up from $20,000,000. 

Several modifications to financial covenants were also made, reflecting the company's recent successful equity financing which raised gross proceeds of approximately $10,000,000. 

"The increased capacity generated will allow us to further take advantage of compelling purchasing opportunities as we head into the very active Fall and Winter retail seasons", said Seth Marks, Liquidation World's President and CEO. 

The changes to the credit facility were part of an initiative supported by the Royal Bank of Canada to assist Liquidation World with its strategy to re-brand its stores, including opening new stores and expanding and converting legacy Liquidation World stores, to the Company's new banner: "LW – Everybody's Outlet Store". To date, Liquidation World has converted 21 stores and opened 7 stores across Canada under its new, "LW – Everybody's Outlet Store" banner.
