Taylor, LLP (hereinafter “YCS&T”) hereby moves this Court for reasonable compensation for professional legal services rendered as counsel to the above-captioned debtors and debtors in possession (the “Debtors”) in the amount of $108,969.00, together with reimbursement for actual and necessary expenses incurred in the amount of $1,313.11, for the period commencing June 1, 2021 through and including June 30, 2021 (the “Fee Period”). In support of its Application, YCS&T respectfully represents as follows: 1. Pursuant to the Retention Order, YCS&T was employed to represent the Debtors as bankruptcy counsel in connection with these chapter 11 cases, nunc pro tunc to March 3, 2021. The Retention Order authorized YCS&T to be compensated on an hourly basis and to be reimbursed for actual and necessary out-of-pocket expenses. 2. All services for which compensation is requested by YCS&T were performed for or on behalf of the Debtors. SUMMARY OF SERVICES RENDERED 3. Attached hereto as Exhibit A is a detailed statement of fees incurred during the Fee Period showing the amount of $108,969.00 due for fees. 4. The services rendered by YCS&T during the Fee Period are grouped into the categories set forth in Exhibit A. The attorneys and paralegals who rendered services relating to each category are identified, along with the number of hours for each individual and the total compensation sought for each category, in the attachments hereto. DISBURSEMENTS 5. YCS&T has incurred out-of-pocket disbursements during the Fee Period in the amount of $1,313.11. Attached hereto as Exhibit B is a detailed statement of expenses paid during the Fee Period. This disbursement sum is broken down into categories of charges, 8407450.1

including, among other things, telephone and telecopier toll and other charges, mail and express mail charges, special or hand delivery charges, document processing, photocopying charges, charges for mailing supplies (including, without limitation, envelopes and labels) provided by the Firm to outside copying services for use in mass mailings, travel expenses, expenses for “working meals,” computerized research, transcription costs, as well as non-ordinary overhead expenses such as secretarial and other overtime. A complete review by category of the expenses incurred for the Fee Period may be found attached hereto as Exhibit B. To the extent such itemization is insufficient to satisfy the requirements of Rule 2016-2(e)(ii) of the Local Rules of Bankruptcy Practice and Procedure for the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Local Rules”), YCS&T respectfully requests that the Court waive strict compliance with such Local Rule. 6. Costs incurred for overtime and computer assisted research are not included in YCS&T’s normal hourly billing rates and, therefore, are itemized and included in YCS&T’s disbursements. Pursuant to Local Rule 2016-2, YCS&T represents that its rate for duplication is $.10 per page for black and white copies and $.80 per page for color copies, its rate for outgoing telecopier transmissions is $.25 per page (excluding related long distance transmission charges), there is no charge for incoming telecopier transmissions and there is no surcharge for computerized research. VALUATION OF SERVICES 7. Attorneys and paraprofessionals of YCS&T have expended a total of 201.00 hours in connection with this matter during the Fee Period. 8. The amount of time spent by each of these persons providing services to the Debtors for the Fee Period is fully set forth in the detail attached hereto as Exhibit A. These are 8407450.1

8

YCS&T’s normal hourly rates of compensation for work of this character. The reasonable value of the services rendered by YCS&T for the Fee Period as counsel for the Debtors in these cases is $108,969.00. 9. YCS&T believes that the time entries included in Exhibit A attached hereto and the expense breakdown set forth in Exhibit B hereto are in compliance with the requirements of Local Rule 2016-2. 10. In accordance with the factors enumerated in section 330 of the Bankruptcy Code, the amount requested is fair and reasonable given (a) the complexity of this case, (b) the time expended, (c) the nature and extent of the services rendered, (d) the value of such services, and (e) the costs of comparable services other than in a case under chapter 11. 11. This Application covers the interim fee period from June 1, 2021 through and including June 30, 2021. YCS&T has and will continue to perform additional necessary services subsequent to June 30, 2021, for which YCS&T will file subsequent fee applications. [Remainder of page intentionally left blank] 8407450.1

CONCLUSION WHEREFORE, YCS&T requests that allowance be made to it in the sum of $108,969.00 as compensation for necessary professional services rendered to the Debtors for the Fee Period, and the sum of $1,313.11 for reimbursement of actual necessary costs and expenses incurred during that period, and further requests such other and further relief as this Court may deem just and proper.
