General Background 9 On April 27, 2020 (the “Petition Date”), the Debtors commenced the above-captioned cases 0 (the “Chapter 11 Cases”) by filing voluntary petitions for relief under chapter 11 of Title 11 of the 1 United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the 2 Northern District of California, San Jose Division (the “Court”). The Debtors have continued in the 3 possession of their property and have continued to operate and manage their businesses as debtors 4 in possession pursuant to sections 1107(a) and 1108 of the Bankruptcy Code. 5 On April 27, 2020, the Debtors filed an Application of Debtor Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 6 156(c) and 11 U.S.C. §§ 105(a), 327, and 503(b) for an Order Appointing Donlin, Recano & 7 Company, Inc. as Claims, Noticing, and Solicitation Agent Nunc Pro Tunc to the Petition Date

1 [Docket No. 7] (“Retention Application”). The Retention Application was granted by the Court’s 2 Order Appointing Donlin, Recano & Company, Inc., as Claims, Noticing and Solicitation Agent, 3 dated May 1, 2020 [Docket No. 54] (“Retention Order”). DRC hereby submits hereby submits its: 4 (i) seventh monthly fee statement for allowance and payment of compensation and reimbursement 5 of expenses for the period from February 1, 2021 through February 26, 2021; and (ii) final fee 6 application for allowance and payment of compensation and reimbursement of expenses for the 7 final fee period from April 27, 2020 through February 26, 2021. 8 B. Brief Chapter 11 Case History 9 DRC incorporates herein by reference, the case status provided in the tenth monthly and 0 final fee application of Debtors’ counsel, Sidley Austin LLP, which is to being filed 1 contemporaneously with this Application. 2 II. 3 SERVICES RENDERED 4 In accordance with the Northern District Guidelines and the Local Rules, DRC classified all 5 services performed for which compensation is sought into categories. DRC attempted to place the 6 services performed in the category that best relates to the service provided. However, because 7 certain services affected multiple categories, services pertaining to one category may occasionally 8 be included in another category. DRC has established the following billing categories in these 9 cases: • Preparation of Schedules of Assets & Liabilities and Statement of Financial Affairs 0 • Fee Statement & Application Preparation 1 • Voting & Solicitation 2 A. Preparation of Schedules of Assets and Liabilities and Statement of Financial Affairs Time devoted to this category relates primarily to working with the Debtors’ financial 3 advisors to collect, compile and process data in connection with preparing the Debtors’ Schedules 4 of Assets and Liabilities and Statement of Financial Affairs (the “Schedules & Statements”), 5 including review of all collected data and finalizing the Schedules and Statements for Court filing, 6 as well as assisting with preparation of amendments thereto. 7

Fee Statement & Application Preparation 3 Time devoted to this category relates primarily to the preparation of each of DRC’s six 4 monthly fee statements and DRC’s first and second interim fee applications. 5 Total Hours: 19.1 Total Fees: $3,302.80 6 C. Voting & Solicitation 7 Time devoted to this category relates primarily to assisting the Debtors in preparing for and 8 soliciting votes on their Sixth Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization (the “Plan”). 9 Total Hours: 58.4 Total Fees: $10,061.40 0 The professional services performed by DRC on behalf of the Debtors during the Final Fee 1 Period required an aggregate expenditure of 193.0 recorded hours by DRC’s professionals, resulting 2 in fees totaling $33,458.70, for a blended hourly billing rate of $173.36. 3 In addition, DRC is seeking fees in connection with the preparation of this Application in 4 the amount of $1,127.70. Attached hereto as Exhibit 8 is a detailed statement of fees DRC seeks in 5 connection with preparation of this Application. 6 7 D.

G. Notice of Application and Hearing 1 Notice of the submission of this Application and the hearing thereon will be provided to the 2 Notice Parties, all parties requesting special notice and other interested parties in accordance with 3 the Local Bankruptcy Rules. Complete copies of this Application will be promptly furnished to any 4 other party upon specific request. Therefore, notice should be deemed adequate under the 5 circumstances and in accordance with Federal Bankruptcy Rules 2002(a)(6) and 2002(c)(2). 6 III. 7 THE FEES AND EXPENSES REQUESTED SHOULD BE AWARDED BASED UPON 8 APPLICABLE LAW 9 The fees and expenses requested by this Application are an appropriate award for DRC’s 0 services in acting as administrative agent to the Debtors. 1 2 A. Evaluation of Requests for Compensation Pursuant to section 330 of the Bankruptcy Code, the Court may award to a professional 3 person reasonable compensation for actual, necessary services rendered, and reimbursement for 4 actual, necessary expenses incurred. As set forth above, the fees for which DRC requests 5 compensation are for actual and necessary services rendered. 6 In determining the amount of allowable fees under section 330(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, 7 courts are to be guided by the same “general principles” as are to be applied in determining awards 8 under the federal fee-shifting statutes, with “some accommodation to the peculiarities of bankruptcy 9 matters.” Burgess v. Klenske (In re Manoa Finance Co., Inc.), 853 F.2d 687, 691 (9th Cir. 1988). 0 In assessing the propriety of an award of fees, twelve factors relevant to determining such 1 fees were identified in Johnson v. Georgia Highway Express, Inc., 488 F.2d 714, 717-719 (5th Cir. 2 1974, a Title VII class action case under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. § 2000 et seq., and 3 Kerr v. Screen Extras Guild, Inc., 526 F.2d 67, 70 (9th Cir. 1975), cert. denied, 425 U.S. 951 4 (1976): (1) the time and labor required, (2) the novelty and difficulty of the questions, (3) the skill 5 requisite to perform the service properly, (4) the preclusion of other employment by the 6 professional due to acceptance of the case, (5) the customary fee, (6) whether fee is fixed or 7

Page 13

1 contingent, (7) time limitations imposed by the client or the circumstances, (8) the amount involved 2 and the results obtained, (9) the experience, reputation, and ability of the professionals, (10) the 3 undesirability of the case, (11) the nature and length of the professional relationship with the client, 4 and (12) awards in similar cases. See American Benefit Life Ins. Co. v. Baddock (In re First 5 Colonial Corp. of America), 544 F.2d 1291 (5th Cir. 1977) (Johnson criteria applicable in 6 bankruptcy cases). 7 The time for which compensation is sought is detailed in DRC’s invoices for the Final Fee 8 Period annexed hereto as Exhibit 9. DRC’s services and time expenditures are reasonable in light 9 of the labor required and outcome achieved in these cases. DRC’s charges for its professional 0 services are based upon the time, nature, extent, and value of such services and the cost of 1 comparable services, other than in a case under the Bankruptcy Code. The compensation DRC 2 seeks by way of this Application is the customary compensation commonly sought by DRC and 3 other professionals acting as administrative agents in chapter 11 cases. 4 B. Section 330(a)(3) Factors 5 Section 330(a)(3) of the Bankruptcy Code sets forth five factors to be considered by the 6 Court. Although several of these factors, such as the time involved and the timeliness of DRC’s 7 performance, were addressed above, DRC believes one of the five factors should be discussed 8 separately again here. 9 Section 330(a)(3)(C) of the Bankruptcy Code requires that the professional services be 0 necessary to the administration of, or beneficial at the time at which the service was rendered 1 toward completion of, the case. 2 DRC submits that the services for which it seeks compensation in this Application were 3 necessary for and beneficial to the preservation and maximization of value for all stakeholders and 4 to the orderly administration of the Chapter 11 Cases. DRC’s work, as summarized above and 5 detailed in its time entries, was focused on (i) assisting the Debtors in preparing their Schedules and 6 Statements and amendments thereto; (ii) assisting the debtors in preparing for and soliciting votes 7 on their Sixth Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization; and (iii) preparing DRC’s various

Page 14

1 monthly and interim fee applications. Such services were necessary to, and in the best interests of 2 the Debtors’ estates, creditors and all other parties in interest, and assisted the Debtors’ in meeting 3 their fiduciary obligations under the Bankruptcy Code 4 C. Available Funds 5 DRC understands that the Debtors’ estates have sufficient funds available for the payment 6 of fees and costs requested herein. 7 IV. 8 CONCLUSION 9 The compensation presently sought by DRC is final relief. Neither DRC, nor any employee 0 of DRC, have any agreement or any understanding of any kind or nature to divide, pay over, or 1 share any portion of the fees to be awarded DRC with any other person, except among employees 2 of DRC. 3 DRC believes that the services rendered for which compensation is sought in this 4 Application have been beneficial to the estate, and that the sums requested for the services rendered 5 are fair and reasonable. 6 7 [Remainder of Page Intentionally Blank] 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
