Media Statement -- Regarding Sandy Benefit Concert Tickets, TicketNetwork, TicketLiquidator

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwire - Dec 10, 2012) - From Daniel Pullium, Director of Government Relations, TicketNetwork & TicketLiquidator:

"TicketLiquidator never sold or offered for sale any tickets for the upcoming Sandy benefit concert. TicketNetwork, the parent company of TicketLiquidator, made an early decision to prohibit the offering of tickets to this event by third-party sellers on any of its internet marketplaces prior to tickets being offered."

"We have long made it a practice to consider that there may be certain events that sellers should not be allowed to list their ticket offerings for because of the event's charitable and non-commercial nature, and we encourage others in the industry to do the same."

"We have reached out to Senator Schumer's office to let them know our position and look forward to having additional communications with his office. We are happy to help in any way possible and to discuss our best business practices if needed."
