IronPlanet and Associated Auction Services LLC, an alliance of Caterpillar and several of its independent Cat® dealers, that operates under the name of Cat Auction Services (“Cat Auction Services”) announced on December 19, 2014, that they had signed an agreement to merge. The transaction is subject to regulatory approval and other standard closing conditions, and is anticipated to be completed during the first quarter of 2015.
