Great American Group® Hosts Live Webcast Auction for Rock & Republic July 26

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Vehicles including a rare 1965 Shelby Mustang GT 350 SR, along with racks of denim jeans and thousands of yards of denim and leather material will be on sale during a live Webcast auction beginning at 10 a.m. (PDT) Tuesday, July 26 hosted by Great American Group, LLC (OTCBB: GAMR), a leading provider of asset disposition, valuation and appraisal services.

Auction items can be inspected from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (PDT) Monday, July 25 at 7355 E. Slauson Ave. in Commerce, CA.

A wholesaler and retailer of what it called "avant-garde" apparel, Rock & Republic Enterprises, Inc. filed for Chapter 11 reorganization in April 2010. Greensboro, North Carolina-based VF Corporation, the manufacturer of Lee and Wrangler jeans, won court approval to buy the company's brand names and intellectual property for $57 million.

"Since Rock & Republic was a denim jean manufacturer, auction items will include jeans, clothing materials, threads, garment machinery, sewing machines, and warehouse and garment racking," said Roy Gamityan, senior vice president/Industrial with Great American Group. "But this auction is unique given some of the vehicles available for auction."

In addition to the 1965 Shelby Mustang GT 350 SR, other vehicles include a 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur, a 2006 Aston Martin V8 Vantage, two 2006 Volkswagen Touaregs, a 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Truck, a 2005 Ford E450 Box Van, a 2005 Ford E350 Van, and a 2006 Mercedes Benz C230. Other auction items include Mac and Dell computers, printers and tradeshow displays.

Great American Group was appointed to conduct the auction by order of the Trust Plan Administrator.

Founded by cyclist Michael Ball in 2002, Rock & Republic's clothing and accessories were sold through upscale retailers and three company stores. In 2009, the company cited revenues of $97.9 million before filing for bankruptcy in Manhattan in 2010. The bankruptcy judge signed a confirmation order on March 23, 2011 approving Rock & Republic's Chapter 11 plan. VF Corp. announced it had signed a long-term licensing deal with Kohl's Corporation to carry the Rock & Republic brand.
