How a British website knows about the takeover and other US sources do not mention any takeover? But it makes sense that EBay will takeover the experience of LQDT with DOD .
Ebay has a lot of company specific problems, but it doesn't really explain the way its slowing marketplaces growth and that the highly promotional environment along with technological advancement is lowering pricing cost of new items.
Ebay should takeover LQDT to compensate its weakness in retail and commercial business

A Wells Notice is neither a formal allegation nor a finding of wrongdoing. Instead, it is a preliminary determination by the Staff to recommend that the SEC file a civil enforcement action or administrative proceeding against the recipient. Under the SEC’s procedures, a recipient of a Wells Notice has an opportunity to respond in the form of a Wells submission that seeks to persuade the SEC that such an action should not be brought. Accordingly, we made a submission to the Staff in response to the Wells Notice setting forth why the factual record does not support the enforcement action recommended by the Staff and that any perceived shortcomings were made in good faith. Although we intend to defend ourselves vigorously should the SEC authorize any legal action that does not comport with our view of the facts, we cannot predict the outcome of any legal action or whether the matters will result in any settlement. We cannot assure you that the ultimate outcome of the SEC investigation, any legal action by the SEC or any settlement will not have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations and/or cash flows.

A high-profile patent spat over noise canceling headphones between Bose Corp and Beats Electronics ended on Friday with the two sides settling the case out of court.
The terms of the settlement were not being disclosed, a spokeswoman for Bose said in an email, adding only that the dispute had been “resolved.”
Bose, which makes high-end sound systems and headphones, filed the case last July in federal court in Delaware, alleging Beats had willfully infringed upon five of its patents in its Studio and Studio Wireless line of headphones.
Privately held Bose said it had lost profits and sales as a result and was seeking unspecified damages from Beats, which Apple Inc AAPL -0.29% acquired this year for $3 billion.
A document filed with the court on Friday said both sides would dismiss the case and bear their own costs and legal fees.
