Chaper 11 Overview

The United States Trustee

The Office of the United States Trustee is a branch of the Department of Justice. Its duties include, among others, monitoring the chapter 11 cases, monitoring the debtor-in-possession's operation of the business, ensuring that each debtor properly files its schedules, statements, and reports, reviewing applications for compensation and reimbursement of professionals, and monitoring for abuse and other illicit behavior by debtors, creditors, or other parties participating in the cases. Near the onset of a case, the United States Trustee appoints a committee to represent general unsecured creditors.

The Committee

On August 5, 2020, the United States Trustee appointed the Committee to represent the interests of general unsecured creditors. The Notice of Appointment is available here. The United States Trustee’s selection of members is generally based upon the size of the members’ claims as listed by the debtors on their petition for relief and, occasionally, on the United States Trustee’s desire to appoint members from multiple constituencies (e.g., vendors, customers, unions, etc.). The Committee serves as a monitor of the Debtors' activities and an advisor to its creditor constituents. The Committee's role in the chapter 11 process is multifaceted and includes, among other responsibilities, analyzing and reviewing information about the Debtors, monitoring the Debtors' activities and financial condition, and participating in the development and negotiation of a chapter 11 plan. The Committee is authorized to hire counsel and financial advisors to assist it in fulfilling its duties. It is important to note that counsel to the Committee does not represent individual unsecured creditors.

Meeting of Creditors

The United States Trustee conducts a meeting of creditors, referred to as the "Section 341" meeting. This meeting was held telephonically on August 31, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. (ET).

Creditors are not required to attend this meeting, but have the right to do so. Attendance at the meeting does not impact a creditor's rights and benefits in any way. Debtors' counsel and the United States Trustee are both present at this meeting to provide information about the chapter 11 cases along with a brief summary of the cases' status. Both parties are available to answer creditors' questions. A representative of the Debtors also appears and testifies under oath. No judge is present and no decisions about the case are made during this meeting. Those who attend may ask questions regarding the Debtors' finances.

Deadline to File Claims

In general, a creditor must file a "proof of claim" by the applicable deadline (the"bar date") in order to share in any recoveries for prepetition liabilities pursuant to the terms of a chapter 11 plan.

The Bankruptcy Court has set the following deadlines for filing proofs of claim:

• General Bar Date: November 9, 2020, at 4:00 p.m., prevailling Eastern Time
• Governmental Bar Date: January 19, 2021, at 4:00 p.m., prevailing Eastern Time

A copy of the Notice of Deadline for Filing Proofs of Claim (the “Bar Date Notice”) is available here.

• The Bar Date Notice was mailed to all known parties with a relationship to the Debtors, including shareholders, potential claimants, and current and former employees.
• The fact that you have received the Bar Date Notice does not mean that you have a claim or that the Debtors believe that you have a claim.
• The Bar Date Notice lists who must file a proof of claim, and who need not file a proof of claim.
• Please read the Bar Date Notice carefully. You should consult an attorney if you have any questions, including whether you should file a proof of claim.
• Prime Clerk is not permitted to provide legal advice, including advising as to whether or not you should file a proof of claim.

Should you choose to file a proof of claim form, you may visit Submit a Claim on the Debtors' Case Information Website for instructions.
