UNITED STATES BANKRUPTCY COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF MINNESOTA In re: Tea Olive I, LLC d/b/a Stock+Field, Case No.: 21-30037 Chapter 11 Case Debtor. DECLARATION OF STEVEN R. KINSELLA IN SUPPORT OF AMENDED MOTION FOR AN ORDER APPROVING SALE OF CLAIMS FREE AND CLEAR OF LIENS AND INTERESTS Steven R. Kinsella makes the following declaration in support of the Amended Motion for an Order Approving Sale of Claims Free and Clear of Liens and Interests [Docket No. 327] (the “Motion”). 1. I am a shareholder in the law firm of Fredrikson & Byron, P.A. (“Fredrikson”), chapter 11 counsel for Tea Olive I, LLC d/b/a Stock+Field (the “Debtor”). 2. Shortly before the hearing on the Motion, Lake Whillans Capital Partners, LLC (the “Purchaser”) and the Debtor discovered that a non-debtor entity’s transactions were inadvertently included in the data set the Purchaser used to evaluate its offer to purchase the Claims, as defined in the Motion. 3. After excluding the non-debtor entity’s transactions and reevaluating the Claims data, the Purchaser reduced its offer from $83,000 to $82,000. 4. As $82,000 remains the highest and best offer, the Debtor decided to move forward with the sale of the Claims to the Purchaser. 5. Attached as Exhibit 1 to this Affidavit is a true and correct copy of the proposed purchase agreement.

6. Attached as Exhibit 2 to this Affidavit is a true and correct copy of a redline comparison of the proposed purchase agreement and the original proposed purchase agreement. 7. The Purchaser is not an insider or an affiliate of the Debtor and holds no connection to the Debtor. 8. The Purchaser and the Debtor negotiated the terms of the purchase agreement at arms-length and the Purchaser acted in good faith throughout this process. I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct according to the best of my knowledge, information, and belief. Dated: June 10, 2021 /e/ Steven R. Kinsella Steven R.

EXECUTION VERSION CLAIM SALE AGREEMENT TEA OLIVE I, LLC (the “Seller”), with Visa/Mastercard Merchant #’s and an address as set forth on Schedule I, for good and valuable consideration in the amount of the Purchase Price (as defined below) set forth in Paragraph 1 below, the sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, hereby sells, transfers and assigns, unto LW VMC I LLC (the “Buyer”) all of its right, title and interest in, to and under any and all claims, demands, rights and causes of action that Seller had, now has, or may in the future have (the “Claims”): (i) against or with respect to any potential future settlement fund or funds or judgment (the “Potential Settlement Fund”) that may be established in connection with a settlement of claims or judgment (the “Potential Settlement”) in that certain class action proceeding against Visa, Inc. MasterCard, Inc. and certain other defendants (each, a “Defendant” and, collectively, the “Defendants”) in the case captioned as In re: Payment Card Interchange Fee and Merchant Discount Antitrust Litig., Case No 05-1720 (E.D.N.Y.) (the “Class Action Case”) including, but not limited to, the Potential Settlement contemplated by that certain Superseding and Amended Definitive Class Settlement Agreement of the Rule 23(b)(3) Class Plaintiffs and the Defendants filed in the Class Action Case on September 18, 2018 (the “Settlement”); and (ii) against any of the Defendants arising out of or related to the conduct alleged in connection with the types of claims for relief asserted in any complaint, amended complaint or supplemental complaint in the Class Action Case, whether raised in the Class Action Case or in any other forum, whether such conduct took place during the class period alleged or sought to be established in the Class Action Case (which class period currently relates to the time period between January 1, 2004 and January 25, 2019 (the “Current Class Period”) pursuant to the Settlement) or otherwise, and whether by settlement or judgment, including, without limitation, all of Seller’s rights, title and interest in and to (a) the Claims, (b) all rights to receive any monetary recoveries, principal, cash and interest, fees, and other amounts in connection with the Claims, and (c) all proceeds with respect to the foregoing, whether the approval of the Settlement or otherwise by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York (“District Court”) or any other court of competent jurisdiction (“Judicial Approval”) is modified, vacated or overturned, or whether such Claims are asserted outside of the Class Action Case. The Claims and the rights and interests described in clauses (i) and (ii) above are referred to collectively herein as the “Assigned Rights.” Seller and Buyer sometimes are referred to in this Claim Sale Agreement (“Agreement”) individually as a “Party” and collectively as the “Parties.” For the avoidance of doubt, Buyer is assuming no obligations or liabilities in respect of Assigned Rights, including any obligations which become due and owing to any claims filer or other third party service provider as a result of this transaction, which obligations and liabilities shall be retained by, and remain the sole responsibility of, the Seller, subject to treatment in its bankruptcy case, Case No. 21-30037 (the “Bankruptcy Case”), filed in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota. For purposes of clarity, Seller and Buyer agree that Assigned Rights shall not exceed or in any way be broader than the release provisions of the Settlement, unless the Settlement is vacated, modified, reversed or otherwise not fully and finally approved by final, non-appealable order.

The Parties acknowledge and agree that: (i) on June 30, 2016, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals vacated the District Court’s certification of the class action and reversed the approval of a previously proposed settlement fund in the Class Action Case of up to $7,250,000,000.00; (ii) the Settlement proposes a Potential Settlement Fund of up to $5,540,000,000.00 for which Judicial Approval has been obtained pursuant to that certain Final Approval Order made by the District Court on December 13, 2019 (subject to an appeal filed January 3, 2020), which also re-certified the class in the Class Action Case; and (iii) purchase of the Claims and the other Assigned Rights is speculative and may result in no distributions or payments or distributions or payments that are different in amount and kind from the Purchase Price. 1. In exchange for the purchase of the Claims and all other Assigned Rights, Buyer agrees to pay the total purchase price of $82,000.00 (the “Purchase Price”) to Seller as set forth below hereto by wire transfer of immediately available funds in accordance with the wire instructions of Seller set forth on Exhibit A to this Agreement within three (3) Business Days (as defined below) after the date that the last Party duly executes this Agreement (the “Effective Date”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Buyer and Seller expressly acknowledge and agree that the Purchase Price is based upon Buyer’s receipt and review of the Transaction Data, which Seller represents is a true and accurate copy of the material from Seller’s processor(s)/banks(s); provided, however, that neither Party makes any representations or warranties under this Agreement or otherwise as to such interchange fee amount.

Seller represents, warrants, covenants and acknowledges to Buyer that: (a) Seller is duly authorized and empowered to execute and perform this Agreement; (b) this Agreement constitutes the valid, legal and binding agreements of Seller, enforceable against Seller and any successor of Seller in accordance with its terms; (c) Seller has not exercised any right to opt out of the Class Action Case or a Potential Settlement (including the Settlement), nor has Seller taken any action (or failed to take any action) that would result in Seller being ineligible to participate as a member of a class in the Class Action Case; (c) the information set forth on Exhibit B to this

Buyer represents, warrants, and acknowledges to Seller that: (a) Buyer is duly authorized and empowered to execute and perform this Agreement; (b) this Agreement constitutes the valid, legal and binding agreements of Buyer, enforceable against Buyer in accordance with its terms; (c) neither the execution, delivery or performance of this Agreement nor consummation of the transactions contemplated pursuant to this Agreement will violate or contravene any law, rule, regulation, order, agreement, or instrument affecting Buyer; and (d) no consent, approval, filing or other action is required as a condition to, or otherwise in connection with, the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by Buyer 5.

MasterCard, Inc. and certain other defendants (each, a “Defendant” and, collectively, the “Defendants”) in the case captioned as In re: Payment Card Interchange Fee and Merchant Discount Antitrust Litig., Case No 05-1720 (E.D.N.Y.) (the “Class Action Case”) including, but not limited to, the Potential Settlement contemplated by that certain Superseding and Amended Definitive Class Settlement Agreement of the Rule 23(b)(3) Class Plaintiffs and the Defendants filed in the Class Action Case on September 18, 2018 (the “Settlement”); and (ii) against any of the Defendants arising out of or related to the conduct alleged in connection with the types of claims for relief asserted in any complaint, amended complaint or supplemental complaint in the Class Action Case, whether raised in the Class Action Case or in any other forum, whether such conduct took place during the class period alleged or sought to be established in the Class Action Case (which class period currently relates to the time period between January 1, 2004 and January 25, 2019 (the “Current Class Period”) pursuant to the Settlement) or otherwise, and whether by settlement or judgment, including, without limitation, all of Seller’s rights, title and interest in and to (a) the Claims, (b) all rights to receive any monetary recoveries, principal, cash and interest, fees, and other amounts in connection with the Claims, and (c) all proceeds with respect to the foregoing, whether the approval of the Settlement or otherwise by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York (“District Court”) or any other court of competent jurisdiction (“Judicial Approval”) is modified, vacated or overturned, or whether such Claims are asserted outside of the Class Action Case. The Claims and the rights and interests described in clauses (i) and (ii) above are referred to collectively herein as the “Assigned Rights.” Seller and Buyer sometimes are referred to in this Claim Sale Agreement (“Agreement”) individually as a “Party” and collectively as the “Parties.” For the avoidance of doubt, Buyer is assuming no obligations or liabilities in respect of Assigned Rights, including any obligations which become due and owing to any claims filer or other third party service provider as a result of this transaction, which obligations and liabilities shall be retained by, and remain the sole responsibility of, the Seller, subject to treatment in its bankruptcy case, Case No. 21-30037 (the “Bankruptcy Case”), filed in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota. For purposes of clarity, Seller and Buyer agree that Assigned Rights shall not exceed or in any way be broader than the release provisions of the Settlement, unless the Settlement is vacated, modified, reversed or otherwise not fully and finally approved by final, non-appealable order.

22

The Parties acknowledge and agree that: (i) on June 30, 2016, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals vacated the District Court’s certification of the class action and reversed the approval of a previously proposed settlement fund in the Class Action Case of up to $7,250,000,000.00; (ii) the Settlement proposes a Potential Settlement Fund of up to $5,540,000,000.00 for which Judicial Approval has been obtained pursuant to that certain Final Approval Order made by the District Court on December 13, 2019 (subject to an appeal filed January 3, 2020), which also re-certified the class in the Class Action Case; and (iii) purchase of the Claims and the other Assigned Rights is speculative and may result in no distributions or payments or distributions or payments that are different in amount and kind from the Purchase Price. 1. In exchange for the purchase of the Claims and all other Assigned Rights, Buyer agrees to pay the total purchase price of $83,000.0082,000.00 (the “Purchase Price”) to Seller as set forth below hereto by wire transfer of immediately available funds in accordance with the wire instructions of Seller set forth on Exhibit A to this Agreement within three (3) Business Days (as defined below) after the date that the last Party duly executes this Agreement (the “Effective Date”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Buyer and Seller expressly acknowledge and agree that the Purchase Price is based upon Buyer’s receipt and review of the Transaction Data, which Seller represents is a true and accurate copy of the material from Seller’s processor(s)/banks(s); provided, however, that neither Party makes any representations or warranties under this Agreement or otherwise as to such interchange fee amount. Upon Buyer’s payment of the Purchase Price, Buyer shall own all of Seller’s rights, title and interest in and to (a) the Claims and the Assigned Rights and (b) all recoveries, distributions or proceeds of any kind on account of the Claims and the Assigned Rights.

Seller represents, warrants, covenants and acknowledges to Buyer that: (a) Seller is duly authorized and empowered to execute and perform this Agreement; (b) this Agreement constitutes the valid, legal and binding agreements of Seller, enforceable against Seller and any successor of Seller in accordance with its terms; (c) Seller has not exercised any right to opt out of the Class Action Case or a Potential Settlement (including the Settlement), nor has Seller taken any action (or failed to take any action) that would result in Seller being ineligible to
