TERMS OF SALE
Set forth below are the terms and conditions (the "Terms") that shall apply to any purchase by any party (a "Buyer") either directly from A&A Machinery Sales (A&A) or in a transaction (a "Transaction") in which A&A serves as broker, agent, liquidator or seller for any third party owner. The Terms apply to all Transactions, including without limitation, public auctions conducted by A&A and direct purchases by Buyer of any item either before, after or independent of any public auction.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. All machinery, equipment, merchandise and other items (the "Goods") are sold on an "AS IS/WHERE IS" basis with no warranties or representations whatsoever, either expressed or implied. Neither A&A nor the consignor makes any warranties or representations of any kind or nature with respect to the property or its value, and in no event shall they be responsible for correctness of description, genuineness, attribution, provenance, authenticity, authorship, completeness, condition of the property or estimate of its value. No statement (oral or written) in the catalog, at the auction, or elsewhere shall be deemed such a warranty or representation, or any assumption of responsibility. Prospective bidders are urged to contact A&A directly for detailed information regarding any lot. WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, THE WARRANTIES OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND MERCHANTABILITY are expressly disclaimed.
2. Registration. Buyers must register prior to bidding at any auction sale. All bidders must provide their name, company (if applicable), mailing address and phone number prior to the auction. When applicable, Electronic bidders are required to provide a valid email address.
3. Deposits. A&A requires a deposit of not less than twenty five percent (25%) of the Buyer's TOTAL PURCHASE PRICE by the end of sale day - with the balance due by the end of the next business day. THIS SHALL BE IN THE FORM OF FEDERAL WIRE BANK TRANSFER. For Electronic bidders, at its discretion, A&A may contact bidders via email or telephone before or during the sale to provide a bank letter of guarantee and/or wire transfer as a deposit. If A&A does not receive a response from its attempts to contact Buyer or if the Buyer does not provide a deposit, A&A reserves the right to refuse or cancel Buyer's bids and re-sell Goods.
4. Invoices & Payment Instructions. Winning bidders can request a printed paper invoice from the Accounting Manager at the sale location during or after the sale. Electronic bidders will be sent an electronic invoice to the email address provided during registration. Invoices can be faxed upon request. Electronic bidders will be sent detailed payment instructions via email along with their invoice.
5. Payments. A&A must receive the balance of the total purchase price no later than the close of business on the day following the auction (the "Final Payment Date"). All payments must be federal wire bank transfer of immediately available funds, and all of the foregoing must be in form, scope and substance acceptable to A&A, electronic bidding registration and for Liquidated Damages in the event of a default. Without limiting A&A's discretion, no corporate checks and no personal checks will be accepted.

Buyer must also pay to A&A on or before the Final Payment Date, all sales, export, use and other taxes due to any federal, state or local taxing authority (the "Taxes") as a result of Buyer's purchase, including without limitation, any taxes arising from any Buyer's Premium (as defined below). To receive the benefit of any tax exemption, Buyer must supply A&A with a sales tax exemption certificate acceptable in form, scope and substance to A&A in A&A's sole discretion.
