LiveBlock Auctions International: Merlin Car Auctions Launches a New Era of Auctioneering in Ireland with the Debut of 'Merlin Live'

REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwire - March 11, 2009) - LiveBlock Auctions International (LAI), formerly referred to as Live Global Bid, is proud to announce that Irelands leading car auction company Merlin Car Auctions (Merlin) has selected LAI's Live Internet Auction software to provide Internet bidding for its auctions. The innovative, real-time, seamless technology is being used worldwide in over 2000 monthly auctions! This move reaffirms Merlin's tradition of providing new avenues of service to its clients, both consignors and buyers.

Merlin Car Auctions Managing Director David Byrne said the company selected LAI to provide real-time, online auction bidding technology because they have a proven track record in delivery.

Merlin Live reacts to the needs of its customers by offering buyers, in today's challenging market conditions, the greatest competitive advantage. This service enables buyers to access the physical auction, with live sound and video, and to bid alongside attendees at Merlin's bi-weekly car auctions. The LAI system integrates on-line bidding by closely duplicating the traditional auction experience without altering the live-auction.

April 2008 saw Merlin raise the standards in the Irish car industry yet again when Merlin Car Auctions moved to a world class 20 acre facility in Naas Co. Kildare. The facility is the largest car auction site in the country, with over 500 cars running through the bi-weekly auction and is the only SIMI approved auction in Ireland. Merlin has developed some of the most efficient business processes ever seen in Ireland, it is easy to see why Merlin are the future of car auctions in Ireland.

LAI is excited to be working with Irelands leading; progressive auction house and we sincerely look forward to a long and prosperous relationship. Matt Pinch VP Operations, LiveBlock Auctions International.
