expenses incurred in the amount of $0.00, for a total of $117,065.00. In support of this Application, FCR states as follows: BACKGROUND 1. On November 2, 2017 (the “Filing Date”), the Debtor filed a voluntary petition in this Court for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. 2. The Court has jurisdiction over this Application pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 157 and 1334. This is a core proceeding within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. § 157(b)(2). 3. On February 23, 2018, the Court entered the Order Appointing Sander L. Esserman as Legal Representative for Future Asbestos Claimants (the “Retention Order”) [Docket No. 278]. The Retention Order authorized the FCR to utilize the services of his law firm, Stutzman, Bromberg, Esserman & Plifka, P.C. (“SBEP”), for general administrative matters without further court approval, but subject to the terms of the Interim Compensation Order. The Retention Order further directed the FCR to include services provided by SBEP in his applications for payment. 4. Pursuant to the Interim Compensation Order, professionals may request monthly compensation and reimbursement. Such requests are to be served on the Notice Parties (as further defined in the Interim Compensation Order, the “Notice Parties”) for review. The Interim Compensation Procedures require a fourteen (14) day objection period. Accordingly, if no objection to a professional’s request is received within fourteen (14) days of such request, the Debtor is authorized to pay 90% of the fees and 100% of the expenses requested. The Interim Compensation Order also requires each retained professional to file, approximately every four (4) months, an application for interim Court approval and allowance pursuant to section 331 of the Bankruptcy Code of 100% of the compensation and reimbursement expenses for the prior

The FCR’s monthly fee requests were served upon the Notice Parties for review as directed by the Interim Compensation Order.

Attached hereto as Exhibits A1-A4 is a detailed description of the services performed and expenses incurred by the FCR and/or SBEP during the Interim Period. In summary, the FCR and SBEP expended 149.30 hours in rendering necessary legal services involving this Chapter 11 proceeding for the Interim Period resulting in fees totaling $117,065.00. The time that the FCR and SBEP devoted to these cases during the Interim Period includes time spent conferring with counsel and reviewing and analyzing issues related to the

4

estimation of the Debtor’s asbestos-related liability and the Bankruptcy Court’s rulings on the Debtor’s requests to take discovery of certain asbestos trusts and the Debtor’s PIQ motion. Time was also spent reviewing the docket in these cases and meeting with counsel for the Debtor and the ACC regarding resolution of various discovery issues. The FCR also spent time preparing for and attending hearings in this case during the Interim Period. 7. Given the FCR’s position as a party in this proceeding, his time and the resulting fees were not duplicative of those of any attorney time billed by his professionals. Moreover, SBEP and the FCR’s general counsel, Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP (“YCST”), worked diligently to ensure that SBEP’s services were not duplicative of any attorney time billed by YCST. The FCR believes that his billing rate and the billing rates of the SBEP professionals assisting the FCR for the Interim Period in these cases, which reflect customary billing rates for 2020, should be deemed “reasonable billing rates” for the purposes of this Court’s determination of the “reasonableness” of the fees for services rendered. 8. The attached Exhibit B sets forth the FCR and SBEP’s time entries by project categories recommended in the Guidelines for Compensation and Expense Reimbursement of Professionals (the “Compensation Guidelines”) adopted by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of North Carolina. 9. A summary of the professionals and paraprofessionals who have rendered services with respect to the Application is attached hereto as Exhibit C. 10. Attached hereto as Exhibit D is a summary of the FCR’s prior fee applications.

DISBURSEMENTS 11. The FCR requests reimbursement for his actual and necessary expenses incurred during the Interim Period totaling $0.00. Attached hereto as Exhibit E, the FCR has itemized the costs and expenses that were incurred during the Interim Period. NOTICE 12.
