The advertiser is compelled to sell

The person or company placing such an ad is claiming to be in the position of being forced to sell what is being advertised (to make room for new stock, because of bankruptcy or the need to avert it, etc.) and is thus implying that the sale is at a reduced price, or possibly even that the price is open to negotiation.
