this Interim Order, and upon its entry, the Final Order, the “Approved Budget”)5 is adequate considering all the available assets to pay the administrative expenses due and accruing for the period commencing on the Petition Date and continuing through September 15, 2021 (the “Interim Period”).

The DIP Facility was negotiated in good faith and at arms’ length between the Debtor and the DIP Lenders, and the use of the proceeds to be extended under the DIP Facility will be so extended in good faith, and for valid business purposes and uses, as a consequence of which the DIP Lenders are each entitled to the protections and benefits of section 364(e) of the Bankruptcy Code. M. Relief Essential; Best Interest. The relief requested in the DIP Motion (and as providedin this Interim Order) is necessary, essential and appropriate for the continued operation of the Debtor’s business (the “Business”), the management and preservation of the Debtor’s assets during the Interim Period, and to avoid irreparable harm.
