Bankruptcy Practice and Procedure of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Local Rules”), and this Court’s Administrative Order Establishing Procedures for Compensation and Reimbursement of Expenses of Professionals, entered June 17, 2020 (the “Interim Compensation Order”)2 [D.I. 213], for (i) the allowance of interim compensation for professional services performed by DSI for the Tenth monthly application period from March 1, 2021 through April 30, 2021 (the “Compensation Period”) in the amount of $6,962.00 (the “Monthly Compensation Amount”), and (ii) reimbursement of its actual and necessary expenses in the amount of $0.30 (the “Monthly Expense Amount”) incurred during the Tenth monthly application period. In support of this Application, DSI respectfully represents: I. Jurisdiction 1. This Court has jurisdiction over this Application pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 157(b)(2). 2. Venue in this district is proper pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 1408 and 1409. II. Background 3. On May 17, 2020, the above-captioned debtors (the “Debtors”) filed a voluntary petition for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Court”). No trustee has been appointed, and the Debtors continue to operate their businesses and manage their properties as debtors in possession pursuant to Bankruptcy Code sections 1107(a) and 1108. 4. On May 28, 2018, the Office of the United States Trustee for the District of Delaware appointed the following three members to the Committee: (i) Navistar Leasing 2 Capitalized terms used herein but not capitalized shall have the meaning(s) ascribed to them in the Interim Compensation Order.

7

Company; (ii) Resources Global Professionals; and (iii) Express Container Services, LLC. 5. On June 20, 2020 (the “Retention Date”), the Committee selected DSI as its Financial Advisor. 6. By this Court’s Order Granting Application of the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors Pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Section 1103(a) and Bankruptcy Rule 2014(a) for Authority to Employ and Retain Development Specialists, Inc. as Financial Advisor Effective as of June 20, 2020, entered on July 20, 2020, the Committee was authorized to retain DSI as their financial advisor effective nunc pro tunc to June 20, 2020 (the “Retention Order”) [D.I. 443]. The Retention Order authorizes the Debtors to compensate DSI in accordance with the procedures set forth in sections 330 and 331 of the Bankruptcy Code, the Bankruptcy Rules, the Local Rules, and such other procedures as were to be fixed by order of the Court. The Interim Compensation Order established such procedures. III. Summary of Application for the Compensation Period 7. By this Application, and in accordance with the Interim Compensation Order, DSI requests approval of the Monthly Compensation Amount and the Monthly Expense Amount for the Compensation Period. 8. During the Compensation Period, DSI performed the services for which it is seeking compensation from the Debtors and their estates. DSI received no payment and no promises of payment from any other source for services rendered, or to be rendered, in any capacity whatsoever in connection with the matters covered by this Application. There is no agreement or understanding between DSI and any other person, other than members of the firm, for the sharing of compensation received for services rendered in these cases. 9. DSI maintains computerized records of the time spent by all DSI

8

professionals and paraprofessionals in connection with its representation of the Committee. DSI’s invoice for the Compensation Period is attached hereto as Exhibit A. 10. DSI seeks monthly allowance and payment, pursuant to Bankruptcy Code sections 330 and 331, of all fees and expenses incurred during the Compensation Period. The firm’s total fees sought for the Compensation Period are $6,962.00 and its total expenses are $0.30. 11. DSI’s request of $0.30 in expense reimbursement for the Application Period is attached hereto as Exhibit B. 12. A description of the task codes used to categorize time spent by project category is attached as Exhibit C. 13. Pursuant to the Interim Compensation Order, absent an objection to the Application, 80% of the firm’s fees, or $5,569.60, is payable to DSI, together with 100% of the firm’s expenses, $0.30. A. Summary of Services Rendered by DSI During the Compensation Period 14. This Application is the Tenth monthly fee application for Interim Compensation that DSI has filed in this case. During the Application Period, DSI provided the professional services that are set forth in the attached time records. 15. Attached as Exhibit A are DSI’s itemized time records for professionals and paraprofessionals performing services for the Committee during the Compensation Period. 16. During the Compensation Period, DSI billed the Committee for time expended by professionals and paraprofessionals based on hourly rates ranging from $720.00 to $350.00 per hour. The professional services performed by DSI on behalf of the Committee during the Compensation Period required an aggregate expenditure of 10.80

9

recorded hours by DSI’s consultants. DSI’s blended hourly rate for services provided during the Compensation Period is $644.63. 17. The fees charged by DSI as set forth in Exhibit A are billed in accordance with DSI’s existing billing rates and procedures in effect during the Compensation Period. 18. All entries itemized in DSI’s time records comply with the requirements set forth in Local Rule 2016-2, including, without limitation, (i) the utilization of project categories, (ii) a description of each activity or service that each individual performed, and (iii) the number of hours (in increments of one-tenth of an hour) spent by each individual providing the services. Each project category in Exhibit A is organized in accordance with DSI’s internal system of project category or work codes (each a “Category”). If a Category does not appear, then DSI did not bill time or expenses for that Category during the Compensation Period, but may bill time for that Category in the future. In accordance with Local Rule 2016-2(d)(xi), all activity descriptions in Exhibit A are presented chronologically or by task code, and chronologically within each category. 19. The professional services performed by DSI were necessary and appropriate to the administration of these cases. The professional services performed by DSI were in the best interests of the Committee and other parties in interest. Compensation for the foregoing services as requested is commensurate with the complexity, importance, and time-sensitive nature of the problems, issues, or tasks involved. The professional services were performed expeditiously and efficiently. 20. In accordance with the factors enumerated in section 330 of the Bankruptcy Code, the amount of fees requested is fair and reasonable given: (a) the complexity of the cases; (b) the time expended; (c) the nature and extent of the services rendered; (d) the

10

value of such services; (e) DSI’s established expertise in the restructuring and bankruptcy fields; and (f) the costs of comparable services other than in a case under the Bankruptcy Code. B. Actual and Necessary Expenses of DSI 21. Pursuant to Local Rule 2016-2(e), attached as Exhibit B are DSI’s itemized records detailing expenses incurred on behalf of the Committee during the Compensation Period. 22. All entries detailed in Exhibit B comply with the requirements set forth in Local Rule 2016-2(e), including an itemization of the expenses by category, the date the expense was incurred, and the individual incurring the expense, where available. DSI has not requested for reimbursement of expenses related to overhead charges. 23. DSI has incurred $0.30 in out-of-pocket expenses incurred as reasonable and necessary costs relating to serving as Financial Advisor to the Committee during the Compensation Period. These charges are intended to cover DSI’s direct costs incurred in representing the Committee, which costs are not incorporated in any respect into DSI’s hourly billing rates. The effect of including such expenses as part of the hourly billing rates would impose that cost upon clients who do not require extensive photocopying and other facilities and services. Only clients who actually use services of the types set forth in Exhibit B are separately charged for such services. DSI has made every effort to minimize its expenses in this case. The actual expenses incurred in providing professional services were necessary, reasonable, and tailored to serve the needs of the Committee. C. The Requested Compensation Should be Allowed 24. The professional time expended by the firm, the value of said time in fees,

11

and the value of the actual expenses incurred by the firm were actual, reasonable, and necessary. In all respects, the firm’s fees and expenses meet the standards for allowance under Bankruptcy Code section 330, as well as the standards that govern the review and allowance of bankruptcy professionals’ fees. See, e.g., In re Busy Beaver Bldg. Ctrs., Inc., 19 F.3d 833 (3d Cir. 1994). 25. Bankruptcy Code section 331 provides for interim compensation of professionals and incorporates the substantive standards of section 330 of the Bankruptcy Code to govern the Court’s award of such compensation. See 11 U.S.C. § 331. Section 330 of the Bankruptcy Code provides that a court may award a professional employed under section 1103 of the Bankruptcy Code “reasonable compensation for actual, necessary services rendered . . . and reimbursement for actual, necessary expenses.” 11 U.S.C. § 330(a)(1)(A)(B). Bankruptcy Code section 330 also sets forth the criteria for the award of such compensation and reimbursement: In determining the amount of reasonable compensation to be awarded ... the court shall consider the nature, the extent, and the value of such services, taking into account all relevant factors, including – (A) the time spent on such services; (B) the rates charged for such services; (C) whether the services were necessary to the administration of, or beneficial at the time at which the service was rendered toward the completion of, a case under this title; (D) whether the services were performed within a reasonable amount of time commensurate with the complexity, importance, and nature of the problem, issue, or task addressed; (E) with respect to a professional person, whether the

12

person is board certified or otherwise has demonstrated skill and experience in the bankruptcy field; and (F) whether the compensation is reasonable based on the customary compensation charged by comparably skilled practitioners in cases other than cases under this title. 11 U.S.C. § 330(a)(3). 26. Whenever possible, DSI sought to minimize the costs of its services to the Committee by assigning tasks as appropriate to lower-billing professionals and paraprofessionals. DSI’s delegation as such has resulted in a desirable blended rate for its timekeepers. 27. In sum, the services rendered by DSI were necessary and beneficial to the Committee and the Debtors’ estates and were performed in a timely manner commensurate with the complexity, importance, and nature of the issues involved. Accordingly, approval of the compensation for professional services and reimbursement of expenses sought herein is warranted. D. Reservation 28. To the extent time or disbursement charges for services rendered or disbursements incurred relate to the Compensation Period but were not processed prior to the preparation of this Application, or DSI has for any other reason not sought compensation or reimbursement of expenses herein with respect to any services rendered or expenses incurred during the Compensation Period, DSI reserves the right to request

13

additional compensation for such services and reimbursement of such expenses in a future application. IV. Notice 29.
