Pursuant to the Bankruptcy Court’s Order dated April 14, 2016 [D.I. 1186] (the “Bid Procedures Order,” a copy of which is available here) approving, among other things, certain bid procedures (the “Main Auction Bid Procedures,” a copy of which is available here) for the Debtors’ sale of substantially all of their assets at an auction currently scheduled for May 16, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. (ET) (the “Main Auction”), landlords (“Landlords”) for the Debtors’ non-residential real property leases (the “Leases”) shall be entitled to submit bids on their own respective Leases in connection with the Main Auction (“Landlord Bids”). All Landlord Bids must (a) be accompanied by a written offer on Landlord’s corporate letterhead, or, if on behalf of landlord by Landlord’s legal counsel, then on Landlord’s legal counsel’s letterhead, for the purchase of one or more of the applicable Landlord’s own Leases, (b) identify the gross amount offered for each individual Lease (if the offer includes more than one Lease), (c) include a breakdown identifying that portion of the offer which is payable in cash to the Debtors (the “Landlord Bid Cash Portion”) and that portion, if any, which is “credit bid” (representing total outstanding documented and verifiable rental arrears), (d) expressly state that the Landlord’s offer is irrevocable until the earlier to occur of (i) the Closing Date (as defined herein), or (ii) ten (10) days after the Sale Hearing (unless selected as the Next-Highest Bidder in which case such offer will remain open until the Closing Date), which is currently scheduled for May 24, 2016 at 9:30 a.m. (ET), (e) state that if it is the successful bidder at the Main Auction, Landlord is ready, willing and able to execute a reasonable short form of Lease Termination Agreement(s), (f) state the extent to which, if any, landlord agrees to waive and release any and all claims it may have against the Debtors, including claims pursuant to section 502(b)(6) of the Bankruptcy Code, (g) include a redline of the form of lease termination agreement attached here (the “Form Lease Termination Agreement”), marked to reflect any proposed amendments and modifications to the Form Lease Termination Agreement, and (h) be delivered to (i) counsel to the Debtors, (A) Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, Rodney Square, 1000 North King Street, Wilmington, Delaware 19801, Attn: Michael R. Nestor (mnestor@ycst.com) and Andrew L. Magaziner (amagaziner@ycst.com), and (B) Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, 333 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, California 90071, Attn: Robert A. Klyman (rklyman@gibsondunn.com) and Matthew J. Williams (mjwilliams@gibsondunn.com); and (ii) investment banker for the Debtors, Rothschild Inc., Attn: Bernard Douton (bernard.douton@rothschild.com) and Mahir Quraishi (Mahir.Quraishi@Rothschild.com) by no later than May 11, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. (ET). For the avoidance of doubt, there is no “minimum” bid for Landlord bids.

Landlord Bids which contain a Landlord Bid Cash Portion must be accompanied by a deposit in the form of a certified check or wire transfer, payable to the order of the Debtors, in the amount of ten percent (10%) of the Landlord Bid Cash Portion (the “Landlord Good Faith Deposit,” and together with the Potential Bidder Good Faith Deposit, the “Good Faith Deposit”).

Except as set forth above, all Landlord Bids and the conduct of the Main Auction shall be governed by the Main Auction Bid Procedures and the Bid Procedures Order.
