In support of the Bar Date Motion, the Debtors respectfully represent as follows: JURISDICTION AND VENUE 1. The Court has jurisdiction over this matter pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 157 and 1334, and the Standing Order of Reference from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, dated July 11, 1984. This is a core proceeding pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 157(b)(2), and the Court may enter a final order consistent with Article III of the United States Constitution. Venue is proper pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 1408 and 1409. 2. The statutory and legal predicates for the relief requested herein are sections 501 and 502 of the Bankruptcy Code and Bankruptcy Rules 2002(a), 3001, 3002, and 3003. 2 The Debtors intend to provide notice of the Priority Claim Bar Date along with notice of proposed Administrative Expense Bar Date as the service list for both are identical. As noted herein, the Debtors’ Customers will not receive notice of the Administrative Expense Bar Date as no administrative claims are held by the Customers.

BACKGROUND I. General Background 3. On March 6, 2017 (the “Petition Date”), the Debtors each filed voluntary petitions for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. Pursuant to sections 1107 and 1108 of the Bankruptcy Code, the Debtors continue to administer the Chapter 11 Cases as debtors-in-possession. No trustee or examiner has been appointed in these cases. 4. On March 10, 2017, the Office of the United States Trustee appointed an official committee of unsecured creditors (the “Committee”). II. Schedules 5. On April 19, 2017, the Debtors filed their Schedules of Assets and Liabilities and Statement of Financial Affairs [Case No. 17-01302-11 at Dkt. Nos. 832, 833; Case No. 17-01303-11 at Dkt. Nos. 26, 27, as amended, 32; Case No. 17-01304-11 at Dkt. Nos. 23, 24] (collectively, the “Schedules”). III. The Debtors’ Remaining Assets, Motion to Dismiss Chapter 11 Cases and Related Claims Reconciliation Process 6. As of the Petition Date, the Debtors operated 220 brick-and-mortar stores offering furniture, appliances, and electronics in 19 states under the names hhgregg and Fine Lines. As of the date of this Bar Date Motion, the Debtors have liquidated (i) their store assets through going-out-of-business sales (which were completed in 2017), and (ii) other material assets that include a majority of Debtors’ avoidance and other causes of action. In addition, all of the Debtors’ prepetition and postpetition secured indebtedness has been paid back in full or otherwise satisfied. 7. The Debtors’ remaining assets consist of certain tax refunds, certain class action proceeds, other miscellaneous assets, and the following adversary actions:

a. Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors v. Whirlpool Corporation, Adv. Case No. 17-50309, and is related to that certain Whirlpool Corporation v. hhgregg, Inc. et. al, Adv. Case No. 17-50104; b. Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors v. Curtis International Ltd., Adv. Case No. 17-50281; and c. Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors v. D&H Distributing Company, Adv. Case No. 17-50282 (collectively, “Litigation Claims”). 8. As outlined to the Court and the U.S. Trustee in mid-January 2021,3 the Debtors were in the process of analyzing and engaging with stakeholders on the best path forward to winding down these cases without unreasonable delay and cost. The Debtors have now determined that even if the ongoing liquidation of remaining assets yields recoveries at the high end of estimates, the estates are not expected to satisfy projected priority claims in full, much less permit distributions to general unsecured creditors. And of the various procedural vehicles to wind down the estates, the Debtors are not able to justify the significant additional administrative burden that would undoubtedly accompany the prosecution of an unconfirmable Chapter 11 plan or conversion of these cases to Chapter 7. 9. This leaves the dismissal of the Chapter 11 Cases as the most viable option to maximize recoveries for creditors. Accordingly, on March 31, 2021 the Debtors filed that certain Debtors’ Motion for Entry of an Order (I) Dismissing the Debtors’ Chapter 11 Cases; (II) Establishing Case Wind Down Procedures With Respect to Claims Reconciliation, Professional Fees and Final Fee Applications; (III) Directing the Debtor Entities to be Dissolved; and (IV) Granting Related Relief [Dkt. No. 3147] (the “Dismissal Motion”). If approved, the Debtors under the Dismissal Motion will conduct a wind down and claims reconciliation process focusing first on all administrative proofs of claim (which shall include any claims asserted pursuant to section 3 Dkt. No. 3126, Dated January 12, 2021.

503(b)(9) of the Bankruptcy Code) filed in response to the Administrative Expense Bar Date, followed by pro rata distributions to holders of allowed administrative claims. 10. Second, the Debtors will shift to reconciling priority claims in the event recoveries from the ongoing liquidation of the Debtors’ assets indicate allowed administrative claims will be paid in full. The scope of priority claims reconciliation will consist of reviewing proofs of claim submitted in response to the Priority Claim Bar Date and the Governmental Priority Claim Bar Date as proposed herein. In addition, the Debtors will review any priority claims filed in response to the proposed Customer Priority Claim Bar Date, of which the Debtors will provide notice to their Customers only in the event distributions on account of allowed priority claims are contemplated as noted above. 11. The Debtors’ Customers primarily hold potential claims that may be entitled to priority pursuant to section 507(a)(7) of the Bankruptcy Code on account of prepetition deposits, and are identified on schedule E/F-2 to the amended Schedules for Debtor Gregg Appliances, Inc. [Dkt. No. 32]. 12. Given the contingent nature of any recovery and significant service expense, the Debtors’ Customers will not receive notice of the Priority Claim Bar Date but will receive notice of the Customer Priority Claim Bar Date if warranted. Further, the Debtors’ Customers will not receive notice of the Administrative Expense Bar Date as no potential Customer Administrative Expense Claims are known to exist.4 Notice of the Priority Claim Bar Date is contemplated at this time only because its service list overlaps with notice of the Administrative Expense Bar Date. In any event, all allowed priority claims against the Debtors will be paid in order of priority set forth 4 Specifically, all of the Debtors’ postpetition customers received refunds on account of deposits in the event goods were not received.

in section 507(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, and will share pro rata in distributions within their priority level if and when such distributions become available. 13. As set forth in the Dismissal Motion, once all of the Debtors’ remaining assets are liquidated and claims reconciliation process is completed, the Chapter 11 Cases will be dismissed and each of the Debtors will be dissolved in accordance with applicable law. RELIEF REQUESTED 14. In order for the Debtors to make distributions under the proposed Dismissal Motion to holders of allowed administrative claims and, if warranted based on the ongoing liquidation of the Debtors’ assets (including Litigation Claims), to holders of allowed priority claims, the Debtors require, among other things, complete and accurate information regarding the nature, validity and amount of such claims in the Chapter 11 Cases. 15. Consequently, the Debtors request, pursuant to sections 501 and 502 of the Bankruptcy Code and Bankruptcy Rules 2002(a), 3001, 3002 and 3003, that the Court (a) establish the Bar Dates and related claims procedures proposed herein and (b) approve the form and manner of notice thereof. PROPOSED BAR DATES AND PROOF OF CLAIM PROCEDURES I. The Bar Dates 16. Bankruptcy Rule 3003(c)(3) provides that the Court shall fix a time within which proofs of claim must be filed. As set forth below, the Debtors request a Priority Claim Bar Date and authorization to fix a Customer Priority Claim Bar Date (if necessary) for Priority Claims (as defined below), as well as a Governmental Priority Claim Bar Date for Governmental Priority Claims (as defined below). The Debtors also request an Administrative Expense Bar Date.

6

17. The Debtors will serve notice (the “Service Date”) of the Priority Claims Bar Date, Governmental Priority Claim Bar Date, and the Administrative Expense Bar Date, together with customized proof of claim forms upon all known entities holding potential claims subject to the Bar Dates except for the Customers in connection with the Customer Priority Claim Bar Date. The Debtors will provide notice to Customers of the Customer Priority Claim Bar Date in the event distributions to holders of allowed priority claims are contemplated. A. Priority Claim Bar Date 18. Except as otherwise set forth below, the Debtors request that the Court fix July 28, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. (Eastern time) as the Priority Claim Bar Date, which is expected to be approximately 40 days after the Service Date. Providing more than 30 days’ notice complies with Bankruptcy Rule 2002(a)’s requirement of at least 21 days’ notice of the bar date as well as Bankruptcy Rule 2002(p)’s requirement of at least 30 days’ notice of the bar date for foreign creditors (if any). 19. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Priority Claim Bar Date will apply to all claims that arose prior to the Petition Date and are entitled to priority pursuant to section 507(a) of the Bankruptcy Code (each, a “Priority Claim,” and collectively, “Priority Claims”). Unless they fall within one of the exceptions described below, entities holding Priority Claims must file proofs of claim with respect to such Priority Claims by the Priority Claims Bar Date. B. Customer Priority Claim Bar Date (if Necessary) 20. Except as otherwise set forth below, the Debtors request that the Court authorize the Debtors to fix a Customer Priority Claim Bar Date in the event the Debtors determine allowed priority claims will receive distributions in these Chapter 11 Cases that is not less than 40 days after the Debtors serve notice of such Customer Priority Claim Bar Date on their Customers (and file such notice with the Court). If established, the Customer Priority Claim Bar Date will apply

7

to all claims held by the Customers that arose prior to the Petition Date and are entitled to priority pursuant to section 507(a) of the Bankruptcy Code (defined above as Priority Claims). Unless they fall within one of the exceptions described below, Customers holding Priority Claims must file proofs of claim with respect to such Priority Claims by the Customer Priority Claim Bar Date. C. Governmental Priority Claim Bar Date 21. The Debtors request that the Court fix July 28, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. (Eastern time) as the Governmental Bar Date by which all governmental units must submit proofs of claim asserting claims against the Debtors that arose prior to the Petition Date and are entitled to priority pursuant to section 507(a) of the Bankruptcy Code (defined above as Priority Clams), including governmental units with Priority Claims against a Debtor for unpaid taxes, whether such claims arise from prepetition tax years or period or prepetition transactions to which a Debtor was a party. 22. The Governmental Priority Claim Bar Date is expected to be approximately 40 days after the Service Date. The Governmental Priority Claim Bar Date is well beyond 180 days after the Petition Date as mandated by section 502 of the Bankruptcy Code. See 11 U.S.C. § 502(b)(9). D. Administrative Expense Bar Date 23. The Debtors request that the Court fix July 28, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. (Eastern time)as the Administrative Expense Bar Date, which is expected to be approximately 40 days after the Service Date. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Administrative Expense Bar Date will apply to claims (i) that first arose on or after the Petition Date through and including the date that the Court enters the Proposed Bar Date Order, including claims under sections 365(d)(3), 365(d)(5) or 503(b)(1) through (8) of the Bankruptcy Code, and (ii) arising under section 503(b)(9) of the Bankruptcy Code. The claims subject to the Administrative Expense Bar Date are referred to herein as “Administrative Expense Claims.”

II. Parties Required to Submit Proofs of Claim 24. Subject to the terms described above for holders claims subject to the Bar Dates, the Debtors propose that the following entities shall file Priority Claims or Administrative Expense Claims, as applicable, on or before the Priority Claim Bar Date, the Customer Priority Claim Bar Date (if established) or the Administrative Expense Bar Date, as applicable: a. any entity (i) whose Priority Claim against a Debtor is not listed in the applicable Debtor’s Schedules or is listed as any of disputed, contingent, or unliquidated and (ii) that desires to share in any distribution in any of these Chapter 11 Cases; b. any entity whose prepetition claim against the Debtors is included within the applicable Debtor’s Schedules, but believes that its prepetition claim is not properly classified in the Schedules as a Priority Claim or is listed in an incorrect amount or against an incorrect Debtor and that desires to have its claim allowed as a Priority Claim or in an amount or against a Debtor different from the classification, amount or Debtor identified in the Schedules; c. any entity that believes it holds a Priority Claim; or d. any entity that believes it holds an Administrative Expense Claim. III. Parties Not Required to Submit Proofs of Claim by the Priority Claim Bar Date or the Customer Priority Claim Bar Date 25. The Debtors propose that the following entities need not file proofs of claim in these Chapter 11 Cases in response to the Bar Dates:5 a. any entity that already has filed a signed proof of claim against the applicable Debtor(s) in a form substantially similar to Official Bankruptcy Form No. 410 with: (i) the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Indiana or (ii) the Debtors’ claims and noticing agent, Donlin Recano & Company, Inc. (“Donlin Recano”); b. any entity (i) whose Priority Claim against a Debtor is not listed as “disputed”, “contingent”, or “unliquidated” in the Schedules; (ii) agrees with the nature, classification and amount of its Priority Claim as identified in the Schedules; 5 The Debtors reserve the right to dispute any of the claims described in this paragraph, and nothing contained in the Proposed Bar Date Order shall preclude the Debtors from objecting to any such claims on any ground.

9

and (iii) does not dispute that the Priority Claim is an obligation of the specific Debtor against which the Priority Claim is listed in the Schedules; c. any entity whose Priority Claim or Administrative Expense Claim against a Debtor previously has been allowed by, or paid pursuant to, an order of the Court; d. any entity that holds a nonpriority unsecured claim against any of the Debtors; or e. any Debtor that has a claim against another Debtor. IV. Parties Not Required to Submit an Administrative Expense Claim by the Administrative Expense Bar Date 26. In addition, the Debtors propose that holders of the following claims are not required to file an Administrative Expense Claim by the Administrative Expense Bar Date: a. any Administrative Expense Claims that (i) have been previously paid by the Debtors in the ordinary course of business or (ii) have otherwise been satisfied; b. Administrative Expense Claims previously filed with Donlin Recano or the Court; c. Administrative Expense Claims of any professional retained and employed by the Debtors or the Committee, pursuant to sections 327, 328, or 1103 of the Bankruptcy Code, including any ordinary course of business professionals retained, pursuant to an order of this Court approving the employment of ordinary course business professionals, for compensation, indemnification, or reimbursement of costs and expenses relating to professional services performed and expenses incurred on and after the Petition Date; d. any claims by any member of the Committee for reimbursement of reasonable expenses incurred in connection with the member’s service on the Committee; e. any claims for fees payable to the Clerk of this Court; f. any fees payable to the Office of the United States Trustee under 28 U.S.C. § 1930(a)(6) or accrued interest thereon arising under 31 U.S.C. § 3717; or g. any claim by a governmental unit for a tax or penalty described in section 503(b)(1)(B) and (C) of the Bankruptcy Code, as provided for in section 503(b)(1)(D) of the Bankruptcy Code.

10

V. No Requirement to File Proofs of Interest 27. As no distributions will be made on account of Interests (defined below) in these Chapter 11 Cases, the Debtors propose that any entity holding an interest in the Debtors (an “Interest Holder”), which interest is based exclusively upon the ownership of: (a) a membership interest in a limited liability company; (b) common or preferred stock in a corporation; or (c) warrants or rights to purchase, sell or subscribe to such a security or interest (any such security or interest being referred to herein as an “Interest”), need not file a proof of claim or proof of interest on or before any of the Bar Dates. VI. Procedures for Providing Notice of and Filing Priority Proofs of Claim and Administrative Expense Claim Forms 28. The Debtors propose the following procedures for providing notice of the Bar Dates and for filing proofs of claim with respect to Priority Claims and Administrative Expense Claims. Except with respect to the Debtors’ Customers, the Debtors presently propose to serve on all known entities holding potential Priority Claims and potential Administrative Expense Claims: (a) notice of the Priority Claim Bar Date, Governmental Priority Claim Bar Date, and Administrative Expense Bar Date substantially in the form of the notice attached hereto as Exhibit 1 to the Proposed Bar Date Order and incorporated herein by reference (the “Bar Date Notice”); (b) a proof of claim form substantially in the form attached as Exhibit B (the “Proof of Claim Form”), customized to focus solely on Priority Claims; and (c) a proof of administrative expense claim form substantially in the form attached as Exhibit C (the “Administrative Expense Claim Form” and, collectively with the Bar Date Notice and the Proof of Claim Form, the “Bar Dates Notice Package”). 29. In the event distributions for allowed Priority Claims are contemplated, the Debtors propose to serve the Customers: (a) notice of the Customer Priority Claim Bar Date substantially

11

in the form of notice attached hereto as Exhibit 2 to the Proposed Bar Date Order (the “Customer Bar Date Notice”); and (b) the Proof of Claim Form (together with the Customer Bar Date Notice, the “Customer Bar Date Notice Package”). 30. As required by Bankruptcy Rule 3001, the Proof of Claim Form substantially conforms to Official Form 410 but focuses solely on claims entitled to priority pursuant to section 507(a) of the Bankruptcy Code. To maximize efficiency and avoid potential confusion, the Proof of Claim Form omits those sections of Official Form 410 regarding the filing of nonpriority general unsecured claims as no distributions on account of such claims are contemplated. A. Service of the Bar Dates Notice Package and Related Procedures 31. As soon as practicable and no later than five (5) business days after entry of the Proposed Bar Date Order, the Debtors intend to mail the Bar Dates Notice Package by first-class United States mail, postage prepaid (or equivalent service) to: (a) all known potential holders of Priority Claims, including all entities listed in the Schedules as potential Priority Claims, except the Debtors will not provide notice to the Customers at this time as noted above; (b) all known potential holders of Administrative Expense Claims, including entities listed in the Schedules as potential Administrative Expense Claims (if any); (c) the U.S. Trustee; (d) counsel to the Committee; (e) all parties that have requested notice in these Chapter 11 Cases pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 2002 as of the date the Proposed Bar Date Order is entered; (f) all parties to executory contracts and unexpired leases of the Debtors; (g) all parties to litigation with the Debtors; (h) the Internal Revenue Service for this District and all other taxing authorities for the jurisdictions in which the Debtors conduct business; (i) all relevant state attorneys general; (j) all holders of record of any Interests in any of the Debtors as of the date of the Proposed Bar Date Order is entered (although copies of the Proof of Claim Form or Administrative Expense Claim Form will not be provided to them); and (k) such additional persons and entities as deemed

12

appropriate by the Debtors. The Debtors will also cause the Bar Date Notice to be posted by the Service Date on the website established by Donlin Recano for these Chapter 11 Cases at https://www.donlinrecano.com/Clients/hhg/Static/POC. The timing of the Bar Dates will ensure that potential claimants known as of the date hereof will receive approximately 40 days’ notice by mail of the Bar Dates. 32. For any claim to be validly and properly filed, a claimant must deliver a completed, signed original Proof of Claim Form and/or Administrative Expense Claim Form, as applicable, together with any accompanying documentation required by Bankruptcy Rules 3001(c) and 3001(d), to Donlin Recano, in the manner set forth below and in the Bar Date Notice, so Donlin Recano receives the proof of claim no later than 4:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on the applicable Bar Date. All such filed Proof of Claims Forms or Administrative Expense Claim Forms must: (a) be written in English; (b) be denominated in lawful currency of the United States; and (c) conform substantially with the Proof of Claim Form or the Administrative Expense Claim Form, as applicable. The Debtors propose that claimants may submit Proof of Claim Forms or Administrative Expense Claim Forms, including supporting documentation related thereto, by electronic submission through the Donlin Recano website at https://www.donlinrecano.com/Clients/hhg/FileClaim, or by hand delivery, courier service, U.S. first-class mail, or overnight mail to the following addresses: If Proof of Claim is sent by mail, send to: Donlin, Recano & Company, Inc. Re: hhgregg, Inc., et al. P.O. Box 199043 Blythebourne Station Brooklyn, NY 11219

13

If Proof of Claim is sent by Overnight Courier or Hand Delivery, send to: Donlin, Recano & Company, Inc. Re: hhgregg, Inc., et al. 6201 15th Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11219 33. Donlin Recano will not accept Proof of Claim Forms or Administrative Expense Claim Forms submitted by facsimile or electronic mail. Donlin Recano shall deem Proof of Claim Forms and Administrative Expense Claim Forms as filed when Donlin Recano actually receives the Proof of Claim Forms or Administrative Expense Claim Forms (as described in the Bar Date Notice) by the prescribed methods of delivery. B. Service of the Customer Bar Date Notice Package and Related Procedures34. As discussed above, if the Customer Priority Claim Bar Date becomes necessary, the Debtors will mail the Customer Bar Date Notice Package (and provide not less than 40 days’ notice of the Customer Priority Claim Bar Date from date of service) by first-class United States mail, postage prepaid (or equivalent service) to: (a) the Debtors’ Customers; (b) the U.S. Trustee; (c) counsel to the Committee; (d) all parties that have requested notice in these Chapter 11 Cases pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 2002 as of the date the Proposed Bar Date Order is entered; and (e) such additional persons and entities as deemed appropriate by the Debtors. 35. For any Customer Priority Claim to be validly and properly filed, such claimant must deliver a completed, signed original Proof of Claim Form together with any accompanying documentation required by Bankruptcy Rules 3001(c) and 3001(d), to Donlin Recano, in the manner set forth in the Customer Bar Date Notice and set forth above in connection with the Bar Dates Notice Package as applicable to Priority Claims. VII. Effect of Failure to File a Proof of Claim Form or Administrative Expense Claim Form

14

36. The Debtors propose that entities that fail to properly file a Proof of Claim Form by the applicable Bar Date, be forever barred, estopped and enjoined from: (a) asserting any Priority Claim against the Debtors that such entity may possess and that (i) is in an amount that exceeds the Priority Claim amount, if any, that is identified in the Schedules on behalf of such entity as undisputed, noncontingent and liquidated or (ii) is of a different nature or classification than any Priority Claim identified in the Schedules on behalf of such entity (any such claim under this subparagraph (a) being referred to herein as an “Unscheduled Priority Claim”); and (b) receiving distributions in these Chapter 11 Cases in respect of an Unscheduled Priority Claim. 37. Further, the Debtors propose that entities that fail to properly file an Administrative Expense Claim Form by the Administrative Expense Bar Date for Administrative Expense Claims: (a) be forever barred, estopped and enjoined from asserting their Administrative Expense Claims against the Debtors; and (b) be prohibited from receiving payment from the Debtors’ estates or participating in any distribution in the Debtors’ Chapter 11 Cases on account of such Administrative Expense Claims. VIII. Filing Claims Against Multiple Debtors; Failure to Identify a Debtor 38. The Debtors also propose that all entities asserting Priority Claims or Administrative Expense Claims against multiple Debtors must file a separate form with respect to each such Debtor and identify on each form the particular Debtor against which such entities assert their respective claims. Requiring entities to identify the Debtor against which such entity asserts a Priority Claims or Administrative Expense Claims will greatly expedite the Debtors’ review of such claims in these Chapter 11 Cases and will cause no undue burden on claimants. The Debtors also propose that if a form lists multiple Debtors, then the Debtors will treat such claims as filed only against the first listed Debtor. Finally, the Debtors propose that any form filed under the

15

jointly administered case number, hhgregg, Inc., No. 17-01302-JJG, or any form that otherwise fails to identify a Debtor, be deemed as filed only against Debtor Gregg Appliances, Inc. IX. Publication of the Bar Date Notice 39. The Debtors believe that (a) it is necessary to provide notice of the Bar Dates to entities with potential Priority Claims or Administrative Expense Claims whose names and addresses are or may be unknown to the Debtors and (b) it is advisable to provide supplemental notice to known holders of Priority Claims and Administrative Expense Claims. Therefore, pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 2002(l) and 9008, the Debtors request authority to publish notice of the Priority Claim Bar Date and the Administrative Expense Bar Date substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit D (the “Publication Notice”) in the national edition of USA Today as a means to provide notice of the Priority Claim Bar Date and the Administrative Expense Bar Date to such unknown potential claimants.6 The Debtors will cause such publication to occur no later than seven (7) days after service of the Bar Dates Notice Package. As set forth in Exhibit D hereto, the Publication Notice will contain (a) a website address where potential claimants may download the relevant claim form and related instructions; and (b) a toll-free number whereby potential claimants can seek additional information with respect to filing Priority Claims or Administrative Expense Claims. 40. In addition, the Debtors seek authorization to replicate the above proposed Publication Notice, substantially in the form annexed hereto as Exhibit E (the “Customer Publication Notice”) with respect to the Customer Priority Claim Bar Date if distributions on account of allowed priority claims are ultimately contemplated. As with the Publication Notice, the Debtors will cause the publication of the Customer Publication Notice in the national edition 6 Bankruptcy Rule 2002(l) provides that “[t]he court may order notice by publication if it finds that notice by mail is impracticable or that it is desirable to supplement the notice.”

of USA Today no later than seven (7) days after service of the Customer Bar Date Notice Package. The Customer Publication Notice will contain (a) a website address where potential claimants may download the Proof of Claim Form and related instructions; and (b) a toll-free number whereby potential claimants can seek additional information with respect to filing Priority Claims. 41. As a result of all of these procedures and efforts, and the establishment of the Bar Dates as requested in this Bar Date Motion, claimants will have or should have the information necessary to be able to file Priority Claims and Administrative Expense Claims in these Chapter 11 Cases. BASIS FOR RELIEF I. The Proposed Bar Dates Should Be Approved 42. Generally, claimants must submit a proof of claim to assert a claim in a bankruptcy case. See 11 U.S.C. § 501(a). Bankruptcy Rule 3003 further provides, in relevant part, that “[t]he court shall fix . . . the time within which proofs of claim . . . may be filed.” Fed. R. Bankr. P. 3003(c)(3). Bar dates for submitting proofs of claim serve “the important purpose of enabling the parties to a bankruptcy case to identify with reasonable promptness the identity of those making claims against the bankruptcy estate and the general amount of the claims, a necessary step in achieving the goal of successful reorganization.” In re Kmart Corp., 381 F.3d 709, 715 (7th Cir. 2004) (citing In re Hooker Invs., Inc., 937 F.2d 833, 840 (2d Cir. 1991)); see also In re J.S. II, L.L.C., 397 B.R. 383, 389 (Bankr. N.D. Ill. 2008). Indeed, prolonged uncertainty regarding the aggregate liabilities of the bankruptcy estate might delay or derail the development of a feasible plan of reorganization, to the detriment of all creditors and parties in interest. See In re Kmart, 381 F.3d at 715 (noting that, without bar dates, “the institutional means of ensuring the sound administration of the bankruptcy estate would be undermined”); accord In re Waterman S.S. Corp.,

17

59 B.R. 724, 726 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. 1986) (“Absent the setting of a bar date, a Chapter 11 case could not be administered to a conclusion.”). 43. Courts within this district recognize the importance of setting bar dates and routinely enter orders setting bar dates. See, e.g., In re Buehler, Inc., Case No. 18-91574-BHL-11, Dkt. No. No. 106 (Bankr. S.D. Ind. Nov. 15, 2018); In re Red Rose Transportation, Inc., Case No. 18- 02739-JJG-11, Dkt. No. 59 (Bankr. S.D. Ind. Aug. 31, 2018); In re Bowman Dairy Farms LLC, Case No. 17-06475-JMC-11, Dkt. No. 53 (Bankr. S.D. Ind. Oct. 31, 2017); In re Triple S Tire Co., Inc., Case No. 15-00107-JMC-11, Dkt. No. 271 (Bankr. S.D. Ind. Sept. 18, 2015); In re Monroe Hospital, LLC, Case No. 14-07417-JMC-11, Dkt. No. 135 (Bankr. S.D. Ind. Sept. 26, 2014); In reSaint Catherine Hospital of Indiana, LLC, Case No. 12-91316-BHL-11, Dkt. No. 180 (Bankr. S.D. Ind. Oct. 1, 2012); In re Jerry G. Wise & Debra L. Wise, Case No. 11-06757-RLM-11, Dkt. No. 127 (Bankr. S.D. Ind. Mar. 19, 2012); In re Castleton Plaza, LP, Case No. 11-01444-BHL-11, Dkt. No. 67 (Bankr. S.D. Ind. June 8, 2011). 44. To make distributions holders of allowed administrative and, if warranted, allowed priority claims in connection with the wind down procedures in the proposed Dismissal Motion, the Debtors require, among other things, complete and accurate information regarding the nature, validity, and amount of such claims that will be asserted in these Chapter 11 Cases. Accordingly, the Debtors request that the Court (i) establish the Bar Dates (including authorization for the Debtors to fix the Customer Priority Claim Bar Date if necessary), (ii) approve the related claim procedures proposed herein, and (iii) approve the form and manner of notice of the Bar Dates. 45. Based on the proposed procedures set forth herein, the Debtors submit that the proposed Bar Dates will provide creditors sufficient time and notice to prepare and file proofs of claim on account of Priority Claims and Administrative Expense Claims. Good cause exists to

18

approve the proposed Bar Dates. The establishment of the Bar Dates will ensure that all claims are resolved as quickly and efficiently as possible. 46. The proposed procedures provide creditors with ample notice and a clear process for filing proofs of claim in a manner that achieves administrative and judicial efficiency. Indeed, the proposed procedures will provide comprehensive notice and clear instructions to creditors on the types of claims to file (i.e., Priority Claims and Administrative Expense Claims), and therefore mitigate the burden (and potential confusion) incurred by such creditors in filing claims that will not receive distributions in these Chapter 11 Cases. At the same time, the proposed proof of claim process is designed to maximize efficiencies by the estates in connection with the proposed Dismissal Motion’s wind down and dismissal procedures. II. The Proposed Procedures For Submitting Proofs Of Claim Should Be Approved 47. The Debtors have worked to design claims procedures that both provide full notice and clear instructions to the appropriate claimants and also allow these Chapter 11 Cases to move forward quickly in connection with the Dismissal Motion with a minimum of administrative expense and delay. These procedures will help claimants file clear and correct proofs of claim, which will avoid unnecessary expense and delay in the claims reconciliation process, to the benefit of all parties in interest. 48. In addition, it is well established that the Court has the authority to authorize the modification of Official Bankruptcy Forms. See In re A.H. Robins Co., 862 F.2d 1092 (4th Cir. 1988); In re Eagle-Picher Indus., Inc., 158 B.R. 713, 716 (Bankr. S.D. Ohio 1993). While Bankruptcy Rule 3001(a) provides that “[a] proof of claim shall conform substantially to the appropriate Official Form,” Bankruptcy Rule 9009 authorizes appropriate and necessary alterations to the Official Forms:

19

the Official Forms prescribed by the Judicial Conference of the United States shall be observed and used with alterations as may be appropriate. Forms may be combined and their contents rearranged to permit economies in their use. The Director of the Administrative Office of the United States Courts may issue additional forms under the Code. The forms shall be construed to be consistent with these rules and the Code. Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9009. 49. A critical element to the Debtors’ claims reconciliation process consists of the Proof of Claim Form modified to focus on Priority Claims in the absence of distributions to holders of unsecured claims in these Chapter 11 Cases. Similarly, the Administrative Expense Form is customized to only address Administrative Expense Claims. Each of the customized forms is designed and intended to reduce time and potential confusion among creditors in filing only those claims that may receive distributions. At the same time, the targeted forms will result in administrative efficiencies for the Debtors’ estates in connection with the wind down process. III. The Proposed Bar Date Notice Package, the Customer Bar Date Notice Package, the Publication Notice and Customer Publication Notice Satisfy Due Process Requirements 50. Bankruptcy Rule 2002(a) requires that Debtors provide claimants at least 21 days’ notice by mail of the time fixed for submitting Proofs of Claim pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 3003(c). See Fed. R. Bankr. P. 2002(a)(7). In addition, Bankruptcy Rule 2002(l)provides that the Bankruptcy Court may order notice by publication if it finds that notice by mail is impractical or that it is desirable to supplement other notice. See Fed. R. Bankr. P. 2002(l). Bankruptcy Rule 9008 also provides that the Bankruptcy Court shall determine the form and manner of any publication notice, the newspapers used, and the frequency of publication. See Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9008. 51. To satisfy the requirements of due process, notice of the Bar Dates must be reasonably calculated to apprise interested persons of the deadlines for filing Proofs of Claim. See

20

Mullane v. Central Hanover Bank & Trust Co., 339 U.S. 306, 314 (1950). Whether notice is reasonable or adequate depends on whether a creditor is known or unknown to the debtor. See Fogel v. Zell, 221 F.3d 955, 963 (7th Cir. 2000) (citing Matter of Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul, & Pacific R. Co., 974 F.2d 775, 788 (7th Cir. 1992)). 52. When a creditor is known to the debtor, due process requires that the debtor take reasonable steps, such as direct mailing, to provide actual notice of the deadline for submitting proofs of claim. See, e.g., Zell, 221 F.3d at 963 (noting that, if a creditor’s “name and address are reasonably ascertainable, he is entitled to have [bar date] information sent directly to him”); In re Grand Pier Center LLC v. ATC Group Servs., Inc., Case Nos. 03-C-7767, 05-C-1156, 2007 WL 2973829, at *5 (N.D. Ill. Oct. 9, 2007) (“for a known or ‘reasonably ascertainable’ creditor, means reasonably calculated to provide actual notice (such as notice by mail) are typically required”) (quoting Tulsa Professional Collections Servs., Inc. v. Pope, 485 U.S. 478, 490 (1988)). 53. When a creditor is unknown to the debtor, due process requires only that the debtor take reasonable steps, such as notice by publication, to provide constructive notice of the deadline for submitting proofs of claim. See, e.g., Zell, 221 F.3d at 963 (noting that, if a creditor’s identity is unknown to a debtor and not readily ascertainable, “publication of [bar date] information in the newspaper or other periodical that he’s most likely to see is permitted”); Grand Pier Center, 2007 WL 2973829, at *5 (“For an unknown creditor, appropriate publication notice ‘can suffice’”) (quoting Tulsa, 485 U.S. at 490)). 54. Debtors are not required to publish notice in an excessive number of publications. See, e.g., Zell, 221 F.3d at 963 (identifying cost as an appropriate consideration in designing a notice program that complies with due process); Grand Pier Center, 2007 WL 2973829, at *5 (“Precedent teaches that ‘reasonable diligence,’ as one naturally would expect, does not require

21

‘impracticable and extended searches,’ and what is reasonable depends on the facts of each case”) (quoting Mullane, 339 U.S. at 317) (internal citations omitted); In re Residential Capital, LLC, Case No. 12-12020 (MG), 2015 WL 2256683, at *6 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. May 11, 2015) (“The proper inquiry in evaluating notice is whether the party giving notice acted reasonably in selecting means likely to inform persons affected, not whether each person actually received notice”) (citing In re Best Prods., Inc., 140 B.R. 353, 357–58 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. 1992)). 55. The Debtors submit that the Bar Date Notice Package, the Customer Bar Date Notice Package (if necessary), the Publication Notice and the Customer Publication Notice (again, if necessary) as proposed herein are “reasonably calculated, under all the circumstances, to apprise interested parties” of the Bar Dates and claims procedures “and afford them an opportunity to present their objections.” In re Envirodyne Indus., Inc., 206 B.R. 468, 473 (Bankr. N.D. Ill. 1997) (quoting Mullane, 339 U.S. at 313). 56. Accordingly, the Debtors respectfully request that the Court determine that the proposed Bar Date Notice Package, Customer Bar Date Notice Package, Publication Notice and Customer Publication Notice, and mailing and publication thereof (whether now or in the future as in the case with the Customer Priority Claim Bar Date), provide good, adequate, and due notice to all potential claimants of their rights and obligations in connection with Priority Claims and/or Administrative Expense Claims they may assert against the Debtors’ estates. Upon the mailing and publication of the bar date packages and the two forms of publication notice, all of the Debtors’ known and unknown creditors holding potential Priority Claims and/or Administrative Expense Claims shall be deemed bound by the Bar Dates and claims procedures proposed herein.

22

RESERVATION OF RIGHTS 57. The Debtors reserve all rights and defenses with respect to all proofs of claim, including, without limitation, the right to object to any proof of claim on any grounds. The Debtors also reserve all rights and defenses to any claim listed on the Schedules, including, among other things, the right to dispute any such claim and assert any setoffs or defenses. NOTICE 58. Notice of this Bar Date Motion has been provided to: (a) the Office of the United States Trustee; (b) counsel to the Committee; and (c) any party that has requested notice pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 2002. The Debtors respectfully submit that no other or further notice need be provided. NO PRIOR REQUEST 59. The Debtors have not made any prior request to this or to any other court for the relief sought herein. CONCLUSION WHEREFORE, the Debtors respectfully request that the Court grant the relief requested herein, substantially in the form of the Proposed Bar Date Order attached hereto as Exhibit A, and grant such other relief as is just and appropriate.
