A Message From our CEO and Founder When we started in the auction business over 32 years ago, we could not have predicted that our business would grow to become one of the leading auction companies in the world. Today, after having offered tens of thousands of items worth hundreds of millions of dollars in person and on-line, and selling in 52 different countries to thousands of eager buyers, there is hardly a part of the world we haven’t sold to, or a type of item we haven’t sold for companies like yours. Live and online auctions continue to grow at an extraordinary rate, drawing more and more bidders and creating tremendous opportunity for smart sellers. Companies like yours need to constantly find new channels to offer their goods for sale. (cont’d)

Westlake Companies Story Drew Donen founded Spectrum Car Auctions in 1982 and quickly developed a reputation as one of the largest, best-attended public classic and exotic automobile auctions in the World. Nineteen years later, Drew turned his attention to raising money for charities and organizations who needed assistance with organizing, promoting and running auctions on their own. Since then, the Charity Auction Business has generated tens of millions of dollars for numerous good causes. To this day, our Charity Auction Business continues to raise money in these live, in-person and online events where we put incredible merchandise in front of very high profile, high demographic donors. In 2009 we started helping for-profit companies with luxury items, including jewelry, watches, rare coins, memorabilia, automobiles and other exciting and valuable items to sell their inventory faster in live and online auctions.
