Gargula, the United States Trustee for Region 10, (“U.S. Trustee” or “UST”) by and through her undersigned counsel, states as follows: 1 The debtors in these cases are hhgregg, Inc., Gregg Appliances, Inc., and HHG Distributing LLC. The debtors have requested that the three cases be jointly administered. See cases 17-01302-RLM-11, 17-01303-RLM-11 and 17-01304-RLM-11 (collectively the “Bankruptcy Cases”).
1JURISDICTION AND STANDING 1. This Court has jurisdiction to hear this Objection under 28 U.S.C. §§ 157 and 1334. 2. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 586, the U.S. Trustee is charged with the administrative oversight of cases commenced pursuant to chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”). This duty is part of the U.S. Trustee’s overarching responsibility to enforce the bankruptcy laws as written by Congress and interpreted by the courts. See U.S. Tr. v. Columbia Gas Sys. (In re Columbia Gas Sys.), 33 F.3d 294, 295-96 (3d Cir. 1994) (noting the U.S. Trustee has “public interest standing” under 11 U.S.C. § 307, which goes beyond mere pecuniary interest). 3. Under § 3072, the U.S. Trustee has standing to be heard on any issue in any case or proceeding, including regarding the Motion to Dismiss and this Objection. BACKGROUND 4. On March 6, 2017, the Debtors filed voluntary petitions for relief under chapter 11 of Title 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. 5. An official committee of creditors was appointed by the U.S. Trustee in one of these jointly administered cases, Gregg Appliances, Inc., on March 10, 2017 (the “Committee”). No committee of unsecured creditors has 2 All section references are to Title 11 of the United States Code unless otherwise indicated.
2been appointed in the remaining jointly administered cases. 6. The Debtors have continued in possession of their properties and have continued to operate and liquidate their business as debtors in possession pursuant to §§ 1107(a) and 1108 of the Bankruptcy Code. 7. On June 1, 2021, the DEBTORS’ AMENDED MOTION FOR ENTRY OF AN ORDER (I) ESTABLISHING BAR DATES FOR FILING PROOFS OF CLAIM AND (II) APPROVING THE FORM AND MANNER OF NOTICE THEREOF (Docket No. 3159) was filed (“Bar Date Motion”). 8. On July 1, 2021, the Court granted the Bar Date Motion (Docket No. 3164) (“Bar Date Order”). 9. In the Bar Date Order the Court set numerous deadlines related to the filing of proofs of claim and administrative expense applications, and objection procedures related to them. One such deadline was August 13, 2021, as the deadline to file applications for Administrative Expense Claims3 (“Administrative Expense Bar Date”). 10. On July 1, 2021, the Debtors filed their Motion to Dismiss seeking a “structured” dismissal of the Bankruptcy Cases. 11. In their Motion to Dismiss the Debtors have requested, inter alia, the following relief: a. Authorizing and approving the Debtors’ budget annexed to the Initial Order4 as Exhibit 1, effective as of January 1, 2021, for the 3 As defined in the Bar Date Order. 4 All terms in this section not otherwise defined are ascribed the same meaning as defined in the Motion to Dismiss.
3wind down and dismissal of the Chapter 11 Cases (the “Wind Down Budget”), and which Wind Down Budget shall include a reserve for the funding and payment of Professional Fees incurred by Professionals on and after January 1, 2021, that are related to the wind down and the dismissal of the cases (the “Wind Down Professional Fee Reserve”) (Motion to Dismiss at 7); and, b. Establishing an initial ninety (90) day period measured from the Court’s entry of the Initial Order for the Debtors to review and reconcile administrative claims and commence pro rata distributions on account of allowed administrative claims, which 90 day period shall be subject to extension for cause upon notice and motion by the Debtors (the “Administrative Claim Reconciliation Process”) (Motion to Dismiss at 6). 12. Objections to the Motion to Dismiss are due by July 22, 2021, and therefore this Objection is timely filed. (Docket No. 3166). ARGUMENT A. The Proposed Bifurcation of Administrative Expenses is Impermissible Without the Claimants’ Affirmative Consent The Debtors should not be permitted to accomplish through a structured dismissal that which they could not accomplish through the plan confirmation process. In the Motion to Dismiss the Debtors propose to bifurcate administrative expenses into two categories, first, the fees and expenses described in the Wind Down Budget (“Wind Down Expenses”) and second, all
4other Administrative Expense Claims. As proposed, the Wind Down Expenses will be paid in full and the other Administrative Expense Claims will be paid pro rata, if the estate is administratively insolvent. The proposed structured dismissal is similar to, but not directly on point with, the issue presented to the Supreme Court in Czyzewski v. Jevic Holding Corp., 137 S. Ct. 973 (2017). In Jevic, the Supreme Court was faced with a structured dismissal that attempted to change the order of payment priority required by § 726. As stated in Jevic, Section 349(b), we concede, also says that a bankruptcy judge may, “for cause, orde[r] otherwise.” But, read in context, this provision appears designed to give courts the flexibility to “make the appropriate orders to protect rights acquired in reliance on the bankruptcy case.” H. R. Rep. No. 95-595, at 338; cf., e.g., Wiese v. Community Bank of Central Wis., 552 F. 3d 584, 590 (CA7 2009) (upholding, under §349(b), a Bankruptcy Court’s decision not to reinstate a debtor’s claim against a bank that gave up a lien in reliance on the claim being released in the debtor’s reorganization plan). Nothing else in the Code authorizes a court ordering a dismissal to make general end-of-case distributions of estate assets to creditors of the kind that normally take place in a Chapter 7 liquidation or Chapter 11 plan—let alone final distributions that do not help to restore the status quo ante or protect reliance interests acquired in the bankruptcy, and that would be flatly impermissible in a Chapter 7 liquidation or a Chapter 11 plan because they violate priority without the impaired creditors’ consent. That being so, the word “cause” is too weak a reed upon which to rest so weighty a power. See United Sav. Assn. of Tex. v. Timbers of Inwood Forest Associates, Ltd., 484 U.S. 365, 371, 108 S. Ct. 626, 98 L. Ed. 2d 740 (1988) (noting that “[s]tatutory construction . . . is a holistic endeavor” and that a court should select a “meanin[g that] produces a substantive effect that is compatible
5with the rest of the law”); Kelly v. Robinson, 479 U.S. 36, 43, 107 S. Ct. 353, 93 L. Ed. 2d 216 (1986) (in [**412] interpreting a statute, a court “must not be guided by a single sentence or member of a sentence, but look to the provisions of the whole law, and to its object and policy” (internal quotation marks omitted)); cf. In re Sadler, 935 F. 2d 918, 921 (CA7 1991) (“‘Cause’ under §349(b) means an acceptable reason. Desire to make an end run around a statute is not an adequate reason”). Jevic Holding Corp., 137 S. Ct. 973, 984-85. Here the Court is faced with a similar situation. The disfavored administrative claimants have not affirmatively consented to a treatment of their claims that is different from how their claims would be treated in a chapter 7 case or in a chapter 11 plan. If the Debtors were proposing chapter 11 plans to liquidate the Debtors’ assets, the plans would have to meet the requirements of 11 U.S.C. § 1129. One of those requirements is that creditors holding a § 507(a)(2) administrative claim must be paid in full as of the effective date of the plan, absent consent to different treatment by the holder of that claim. § 1129(a)(9). Here, in the event of administrative insolvency, the Debtors seek to pay Administrative Expense Claims pro rata without the claimants’ consent while at the same time paying other administrative expenses, the Wind Down Expenses, in full. It is important to note that § 1129(a)(9) claims must be treated individually and are not subject to § 1122(a) classification as each claimant must individually consent to treatment other than payment in full upon the effective date. See § 1129(a)(9). As stated by the Court in In re Dig. Impact, 223 B.R. 1, 7 (Bankr. N.D. Okla. 1998),
6The language of Section 1129(a)(9) specifically requires each holder of each "particular claim" to enter into an agreement with the plan proponent to waive the right to payment of administrative expenses in full. This Court concludes that in order to waive the protection of Section 1129(a)(9)(A), a claimant must individually and affirmatively agree to such treatment. See also In re Jankins, 184 B.R. 488, 492 n.8 (Bankr. E.D. Va. 1995) (failure of priority claimant to object to treatment less favorable than that required by Section 1129(a)(9) is not consent to such treatment; an affirmative concurrence by the creditor is required). See also In re CS Estate, Inc., No. 15-13766 (RDM), 2018 Bankr. LEXIS 25, at *10 (Bankr. W.D. Wis. Jan. 4, 2018) (The term "has agreed" [for the purpose of § 1129(a)(9)] has been interpreted as requiring an affirmative consent and not merely a failure to object.) In their Motion to Dismiss the Debtors are proposing to pay Administrative Expense Creditors less than payment in full, without those creditors’ affirmative consent, and therefore the Motion to Dismiss should be denied if the issue cannot be rectified. B. The Decision to Grant or Deny the Motion to Dismiss Should be Delayed As noted above, the affirmative consent of the Administrative Expense Claimants is required if the Motion to Dismiss is to be granted. It is not yet possible to determine if the Debtors can obtain the consents needed. The Administrative Expense Claim Bar Date does not run until August 13, 2021. Through the Motion to Dismiss the Debtors requested ninety additional days to review Administrative Expense Claims and to file any objections thereto. Until the Administrative Expense Claim Bar Date runs it is not possible to know the
7universe of administrative claimants from whom consents are needed. The United States Trustee requests the Court delay any decision on granting the Motion to Dismiss until after the bar date runs and any objections to filed claims are resolved. In the meantime, the Debtors can (once the universe of claims is determined) attempt to obtain the necessary consents. If all holders of allowed Administrative Expense Claims consent to their proposed treatment under the Motion to Dismiss, this Objection will be moot. C. If All Required Consents Cannot be Obtained, The Bankruptcy Cases Should be Converted to Cases Under Chapter 7 As noted above, if the Debtors had filed the distribution scheme proposed in the Motion to Dismiss as chapter 11 plans, those plans would have had to comply with all of the requirements of § 1129. If consents from all Administrative Expense Claimants cannot be obtained and the estates are administratively insolvent, the Debtors will be unable to propose confirmable plans because they cannot meet the requirement of § 1129(a)(9) to pay all allowed administrative expenses in full upon the effective date of the plans. Section 1112(b) requires that the Court convert a case to one under chapter 7 or dismiss the case upon request of a party in interest if cause is shown. Section 1112(b)(4) contains an illustrative, but not exhaustive, list of what constitutes “cause” to dismiss or convert a case. Failure to file and obtain confirmation of a plan within a timeline set by the Court is one such identified basis for cause. §1112(b)(4)(J).
8On December 22, 2020, the United States Trustee filed her Motion to Set Status Conference (Docket No. 3118). In her motion the United States Trustee requested the Court set a deadline for the Debtors to file chapter 11 plans or motions to dismiss the Bankruptcy Cases. The Court granted the United States Trustee’s motion and ordered the Debtors to file plans or dismissal motions on or before March 31, 2021. (Docket No. 3128). The Debtors opted to file the Motion to Dismiss and have not filed chapter 11 plans. Further, as noted above, even if the Debtors file plans in the Bankruptcy Cases, those plans would be unconfirmable. As a result, cause exists to dismiss or convert the Bankruptcy Cases. Once cause to dismiss or convert a case is found, the decision as to which remedy is appropriate is based upon which remedy is in the best interests of the creditors. § 1112(b)(1). In the Bankruptcy Cases there remains more than $1.3 Million in cash plus proceeds, if any, from two remaining unresolved adversary proceedings to be distributed to creditors. It is in the creditors’ best interests to allow a chapter 7 trustee to liquidate the adversary proceedings and make distributions to creditors pursuant to § 726, including pro rata distributions to all administrative expense claimants in the event of administrative insolvency pursuant to § 726(b).
9CONCLUSION The Motion to Dismiss should not be granted because it proposes to make distributions to the Administrative Expense Claimants, without their affirmative consent, in an amount less than payment in full in the event the Bankruptcy Cases are administratively insolvent. The Court should delay its ruling on the Motion to Dismiss until the Administrative Claims Bar Date passes and any objections to Administrative Expense Claims have been resolved. In the event that the Debtors are able to obtain affirmative consents from all Administrative Expense Claimants this Objection will be moot. Alternatively, if the Debtors cannot obtain the necessary consents, the Court should convert the Bankruptcy Cases to cases under chapter 7 so that the remaining assets may be distributed as required by § 726.
