(the “Chapter 11 Cases”), for its eighth application (this “Application”), pursuant to sections 330(a) and 331 of title 11 of the United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”), Rule 2016 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure (the “Bankruptcy Rules”) and Rule 2016-1 of the Local Bankruptcy Rules for the Southern District of New York (the “Local Rules”), for the interim allowance of compensation for professional services performed by Weil for the period commencing September 1, 2019 through and including July 31, 2021 (the “Compensation Period”),3 and for reimbursement of its actual and necessary expenses incurred during the Compensation Period, respectfully represents as follows: Introduction 1. Since retention as counsel to the Debtors on February 15, 2017, Weil has worked with the Debtors, the Debtors’ other professionals, and other parties in interest to bring stability to these Chapter 11 Cases and assist parties in formulating a chapter 11 plan. The goal has been to formulate a consensual structure that maximizes value for the Debtors’ estates and stakeholders and allows for a successful restructuring of the Debtors and their non-Debtor affiliates. 2. That progress has taken longer than many, including the Debtors, hoped or anticipated; however, on March 16, 2021, in connection with confirmation of the Creditor Plan Proponents’ Chapter 11 Plan for CFG Peru Investments Pte. Ltd. (Singapore) [ECF No. 2564] (the “CFG Peru Plan”), the Court entered an order [ECF No. 2532] approving a settlement (the “CFG Settlement”) between the Debtors, certain creditors in the “CFGL silo,” and the 2 As used herein, the term “Debtors” shall not refer to CFG Peru Investments Pte. Limited (Singapore) (“CFG Peru Singapore”). 3 As described herein and in Weil’s previous fee application, in an effort to maximize efficiency, Weil has transitioned substantially all work streams over to Klestadt Winters Jureller Southard & Stevens, LLP (“Klestadt”). As a result, Weil incurred relatively small fees and expenses during the Compensation Period. The Office of the United States Trustee for Region 2 (the “U.S. Trustee”) and the Court therefore found it acceptable for Weil to wait to file this Application and cover a longer time period. 2

19

Chapter 11 Trustee, which we understand from Klestadt will likely pave the way for exit from chapter 11 for the remaining Debtors. 3. Recognizing the tenure of these Chapter 11 Case and the importance of minimizing administrative expenses while the Debtors focused on negotiations with respect to a resolution of these Chapter 11 Cases, the Debtors made the decision, in consultation with Weil and Klestadt, to transition certain work streams over from Weil to Klestadt. Accordingly, as previewed for the Court at past hearings and as discussed in prior Weil fee applications, the amount of fees and expenses incurred by Weil during the twenty-three (23) month Compensation Period reflects this redistribution of work. 4. Notwithstanding the above, during the Compensation Period Weil continued to play a role in these Chapter 11 Cases and, among other things, to: (i) assist the Debtors in communicating with creditors and the Chapter 11 Trustee in the ongoing dialogue regarding consensual restructuring options; (ii) advise the Debtors in coordinating with the Chapter 11 Trustee and creditors with respect to the settlement of certain claims and resolution of certain creditor disputes; and (iii) provide the Debtors’ senior management team with advice, in each case, when requested by the Debtors or Klestadt. 5. Weil’s efforts to advise and represent the Debtors during the Compensation Period were necessary and of substantial benefit to the administration of the Chapter 11 Cases. The professional services performed and expenses incurred were actual and necessary to preserve and protect the value of the Debtors’ assets and to further a successful reorganization. 6. The Interim Compensation Order (as defined below) provides that when seeking interim compensation, professionals must serve monthly fee statements (“Monthly Fee 3

20

Statement”) to certain notice parties as well as file the Monthly Fee Statement on the docket. Parties in interest have 15 days after receipt to review. If no objection to a Monthly Fee Statement is made within 15 days, the Debtors are authorized to pay 80% of the fees requested (with the remaining 20% of the fees requested referred to herein as the “Holdback”) and 100% of the expenses requested (i) first out of any retainer balance held by such professional until such retainer is exhausted and (ii) then from non-retainer funds. 7. Weil submitted Monthly Fee Statements for each of the months covered by the Compensation Period.4 The aggregate Holdback amount for the twenty-three (23) month Compensation Period (September 1, 2019 through and including July 31, 2021) is $70,854.40. 8. Except as otherwise disclosed herein, this Application has been prepared in accordance with General Order M-412 (Order Establishing Procedures for Monthly Compensation and Reimbursement of Expenses of Professionals, dated December 21, 2010 (Gonzalez, C.J.)) (“Order M-412”), Administrative Order M-447 (Amended Guidelines for Fees and Disbursements for Professionals in Southern District of New York Bankruptcy Cases, dated January 29, 2013 (Morris, C.J.)) (“Order M-447”), and the U.S. Trustee Guidelines for Reviewing Applications for Compensation and Reimbursement of Expenses Filed under 11 U.S.C. § 330 by Attorneys in Larger Chapter 11 Cases, effective November 1, 2013 (the “U.S. Trustee Guidelines”; and together with Order M-412 and Order M-447, the “Fee Guidelines”), the Bankruptcy Code, the Bankruptcy Rules, the Local Rules, and any further order of the Court, including, without limitation, this Court’s Order Establishing Procedures for Monthly Compensation and Reimbursement of Expenses of Professionals [ECF No. 199] (the “Interim 4 Due to Weil’s currently very limited role in the case and de minimis fees being incurred each month, Weil filed a combined fee statement for January 1, 2020 – July 31, 2021 [ECF No. 2649]. 4

Compensation Order”) for all professional services performed and expenses incurred after the Engagement Date. 9. In light of the nature of these Chapter 11 Cases and the services rendered, Weil’s fees for professional services performed and expenses incurred are reasonable under the applicable standards. Weil respectfully requests that the Court grant this Application and allow interim compensation for professional services performed and reimbursement for expenses as requested herein. Jurisdiction 10. The Court has jurisdiction to consider this matter pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 157 and 1334. This is a core proceeding pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 157(b). Venue is proper before the Court pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 1408 and 1409. Background 11. On June 30, 2016, each of the Debtors (including CFG Peru Singapore), except for Pacific Andes Resource Development Limited (Bermuda) (“PARD”) and the New Debtors (as defined below), commenced with this Court a voluntary case under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. 12. On September 29, 2016, PARD commenced with this Court a voluntary case under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. 13. On March 27, 2017, Nouvelle Foods International Ltd. (BVI) and Golden Target Pacific Limited (BVI) each commenced with this Court a voluntary case under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (the “March Debtors”). 5

22

14. On April 17, 2017, Pacific Andes International Holdings (BVI) Limited and Zhonggang Fisheries Limited (BVI) each commenced with this Court a voluntary case under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (the “April Debtors”). 15. On May 2, 2017, Admired Agents Limited (BVI), Chiksano Management Limited (BVI), Clamford Holding Limited (BVI), Excel Concept Limited (BVI), Gain Star Management Limited (BVI), Grand Success Investment (Singapore) Private Limited, Hill Cosmos International Limited (BVI), Loyal Mark Holdings Limited (BVI), Metro Island International Limited (BVI), Mission Excel International Limited (BVI), Natprop Investments Limited, Pioneer Logistics Limited (BVI), Sea Capital International Limited (BVI), Shine Bright Management Limited (BVI), Superb Choice International Limited (BVI), and Toyama Holdings Limited (BVI) each commenced with this Court a voluntary cases under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (the “May Debtors” and, together with the March Debtors and the April Debtors, the “New Debtors”). 16. By order dated November 10, 2016 [ECF No. 219], a chapter 11 trustee was appointed over CFG Peru Singapore. Other than the Chapter 11 Trustee, no trustee, examiner, or statutory committee of creditors has been appointed in any of the Chapter 11 Cases. The Debtors are operating their businesses and managing their properties as debtors in possession pursuant to sections 1107(a) and 1108 of the Bankruptcy Code. The Chapter 11 Cases have been consolidated for procedural purposes only and are being jointly administered under case number 16-11895 (JLG). 17. On May 26, 2017, by the Third Order Extending Exclusive Periods During Which Only Debtors May File a Chapter 11 Plan and Solicit Acceptances Thereof [ECF No. 583] (the “Third Exclusivity Order”) approving the related motion, the Court extended the 6

23

Debtors’ exclusivity up to and through November 1, 2017 for filing a chapter 11 plan of reorganization and up to and through January 22, 2018 for solicitation of acceptances of a chapter 11 plan.5 Pursuant to the Third Exclusivity Order, the Court approved an “Exclusivity Protocol” that conditioned extension of the Exclusive Periods on the Debtors’ compliance with certain requirements, including, among others, filing a disclosure statement and chapter 11 plan of reorganization no later than September 29, 2017. 18. On September 29, 2017, the Debtors filed the (i) Chapter 11 Plan of Pacific Andes International Holdings Limited (Bermuda) and Certain of Its Affiliated Debtors [ECF No. 808] (the “PAIH Plan”); (ii) Chapter 11 Plan of China Fishery Group Limited (Cayman), Pacific Andes Resources Development Limited (Bermuda), and Certain of their Affiliated Debtors [ECF No. 807] (the “CFGL/PARD Plan,” and together with the PAIH Plan, the “Plans”); (iii) Disclosure Statement for Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization of Pacific Andes International Holdings Limited (Bermuda) and Certain of Its Affiliated Debtors [ECF No. 801] (the “PAIH Disclosure Statement”); and (iv) Disclosure Statement for Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization of China Fishery Group Limited (Cayman), Pacific Andes Resources Development Limited (Bermuda), and Certain of Their Affiliated Debtors [ECF No. 800] (the “CFGL/PARD Disclosure Statement” and, together with the PAIH Disclosure Statement, the “Disclosure Statements”). 19. On March 16, 2021, the Creditor Plan proponents (as defined in the CFG Peru Plan) filed the CFG Peru Plan. On June 10, 2021, the Court entered an order confirming the CFG Peru Plan [ECF No. 2564]. 5 On December 28, 2017, by the Fourth Order Extending Period During Which Only Debtors May Solicit Acceptances of a Chapter 11 Plan [ECF No. 933], the Court further extended the Debtors’ exclusive solicitation period through and including February 28, 2018. 7

24

Debtors’ Retention of Weil 20. On March 16, 2017, the Debtors filed an application to employ Weil as their attorneys [ECF No. 387] (the “Weil Retention Application”). On April 28, 2017, the Court entered an order approving Weil’s retention [ECF No. 492] (the “Retention Order”). 21. The Retention Order authorizes the Debtors to employ and retain Weil, nunc pro tunc to February 15, 2017, as their attorneys in these Chapter 11 Cases in accordance with Weil’s normal hourly rates and disbursement policies, all as contemplated by the Weil Retention Application. The Retention Order also provides that Weil shall be reimbursed for reasonable and necessary expenses. The Retention Order authorizes Weil to provide the following services to the Debtors: (i) Prepare on behalf of the Debtors, as debtors in possession, all necessary motions, applications, answers, orders, reports, and other papers in connection with the administration of the Debtors’ estates; (ii) Take all necessary action to protect and preserve the Debtors’ estates, including the prosecution of actions on the Debtors’ behalf, the defense of any actions commenced against the Debtors, the negotiation of disputes in which the Debtors are involved, and the preparation of objections to claims filed against the Debtors’ estates; (iii) Take all necessary actions in connection with any chapter 11 plan and related disclosure statement, and all related documents, and such further actions as may be required in connection with the administration of the Debtors’ estates; and (iv) Perform all other necessary legal services in connection with the prosecution of these Chapter 11 Cases. Retention Order ¶3. 8

Summary of Professional Compensation and Reimbursement of Expenses Requested 22. Weil seeks allowance of interim compensation for professional services performed during the twenty-three (23) month Compensation Period in the amount of $354,272.00 and for reimbursement of expenses incurred in connection with the rendition of such services in the amount of $4,935.65. During the twenty-three (23) month Compensation Period, Weil attorneys and paraprofessionals expended a total of 496.40 hours in connection with the necessary services performed. 23. There is no agreement or understanding between Weil and any other person, other than members of the firm, for the sharing of compensation to be received for services rendered in these cases. During the Compensation Period, Weil received no payment or promises of payment from any source for services rendered or to be rendered in any capacity whatsoever in connection with the matters covered by this Application (other than in accordance with the Retention Order). 24. The fees charged by Weil in these cases are billed in accordance with Weil’s existing billing rates and procedures in effect during the Compensation Period. The rates Weil charges for the services rendered by its professionals and paraprofessionals in these Chapter 11 Cases are the same rates Weil charges for professional and paraprofessional services rendered in comparable bankruptcy and nonbankruptcy related matters. Such fees are reasonable based on the customary compensation charged by comparably skilled practitioners in comparable bankruptcy and nonbankruptcy cases in a competitive national legal market. 25. Weil consistently monitors its charges and expenses before and after the submission of Monthly Fee Statements for possible errors or charges that should be reduced. As a result, in connection with the preparation and submission of Monthly Fee Statements during 9

26

the Compensation Period, Weil voluntarily reduced its fees by $26,139.00, and its expenses by $517.65. 26. Annexed hereto as Exhibit A is a certification regarding compliance with the Fee Guidelines. 27. Annexed hereto as Exhibit B is a schedule of Weil attorneys and paraprofessionals who have performed services for the Debtors during the Compensation Period, the capacities in which each individual is employed by Weil, the department in which each individual practices, the hourly billing rate charged by Weil for services performed by such individuals and whether such rates have increased during the Compensation Period, the year in which each attorney was first licensed to practice law (where applicable) and the aggregate number of hours expended in this matter and fees billed therefor. 28. Annexed hereto as Exhibit C is a summary of Weil’s time records billed during the Compensation Period using project categories hereinafter described. Weil maintains computerized records of the time spent by all Weil attorneys and paraprofessionals in connection with the prosecution of these Chapter 11 Cases. Copies of these computerized records have been furnished to the Debtors, the Court, and the U.S. Trustee. 29. Annexed hereto as Exhibit D is a schedule specifying the categories of expenses for which Weil is seeking reimbursement and the total amount for each such expense category. An itemized schedule of all such expenses has been provided to the Debtors, the Court, and the U.S. Trustee. 30. Annexed hereto as Exhibit E is a summary and comparison of the aggregate blended hourly rates billed by Weil’s domestic timekeepers to nonbankruptcy matters 10

27

during the preceding 12 month period ending July 31, 2021 and the blended hourly rates billed to the Debtors during the twenty-three (23) month Compensation Period. 31. Due to the transition of substantially all workstreams to Klestadt, Weil estimated incurring approximately $15,000.00 per month (or less) in fees and expenses (the “Budget”). Taking into account the twenty-three (23) month Compensation Period, the total Budget amounted to $345,000.00. In the event Weil had been asked to perform a significant workstream for the Debtors, Weil would have provided a specific budget for the project. No such projects arose. 32. The redistribution of work to Klestadt and the length of time covered by the Compensation Period resulted in a number of different Weil paralegals and associates working on these Chapter 11 Cases; however, at any given time, no more than 1 partner and 2 associates (one mid-level and one junior associate) were working on the matter. 33. To the extent that time or disbursement charges for services rendered or disbursements incurred relate to the Compensation Period but were not processed prior to the preparation of this Application, Weil reserves the right to request additional compensation for such services and reimbursement of such expenses in a future application. Summary of Services Performed by Weil During Compensation Period 34. The following is a detailed summary of the professional services rendered by Weil during the Compensation Period, organized in accordance with Weil’s internal system of task codes.6 6 Task codes with only de minimis amounts of time (i.e., less than 10 hours) have been excluded from the following summary. 11

US Trustee/Monthly Operating Report/2015.3 Reports (Task Code 031) Fees: $13,166.00; Total Hours: 18.10  Reviewed and circulated monthly operating reports, intercompany balance reports, and 13-week cash flow statements in compliance with the Order Authorizing the Debtors to (A) Continue Their Cash Management System, (B) Honor Certain Prepetition Obligations Related Thereto, and (C) Maintain Existing Bank Accounts [ECF Nos. 1551, 1597, 1618, 1641, and 1688]; and  Reviewed 2015.3 reports. 35. The foregoing professional services performed by Weil were necessary and appropriate in order for Weil to represent the Debtors effectively and completely in these Chapter 11 Cases. Compensation for such services as requested is commensurate with the complexity, importance, and nature of the issues and tasks involved. In each case, the professional services were performed expeditiously and efficiently. 36. The professional services performed by Weil were rendered by partners and associates in the firm’s Restructuring Department. Weil has a preeminent restructuring practice and enjoys a national reputation for its expertise in financial reorganizations and restructurings of troubled entities. 37. The professional services performed by Weil on behalf of the Debtors during the Compensation Period required an aggregate expenditure of 496.40 recorded hours by Weil’s partners, associates, and paraprofessionals. Of the aggregate time expended, 38.50 recorded hours were expended by partners, 320.60 recorded hours were expended by associates, and 137.30 recorded hours were expended by paraprofessionals of Weil. 38. During the Compensation Period, Weil billed the Debtors for time expended by attorneys based on hourly rates ranging from $595.00 to $1,325.00 per hour. 14

31

Allowance of compensation in the amount requested would result in a blended hourly billing rate of approximately $880.48 (based on 359.10 recorded hours for attorneys at Weil’s agreed billing rates in effect at the time of the performance of services). Actual and Necessary Disbursements of Weil 39. As set forth in Exhibit D hereto, Weil has disbursed $4,935.65 in the form of expenses incurred in providing professional services during the Compensation Period. These expenses are reasonable and necessary and were essential to, among other things, timely file and respond to motions and objections and the overall administration of Weil’s representation in these Chapter 11 Cases. 40. Consistent with firm policy, attorneys and other employees of Weil who worked late into the evenings or on weekends were reimbursed for their reasonable meal costs and their cost for transportation home from the office. Weil’s regular practice is not to include components for those charges in overhead when establishing billing rates and to charge its clients for these and all other out-of-pocket disbursements incurred during the regular course of the rendition of services. The reimbursement amounts do not exceed those set forth in the UST Guidelines, Local Guidelines, and the Local Rules. 41. With respect to photocopying expenses, in compliance with the Fee Guidelines and Local Rule 2016-1, Weil charges all of its clients $0.10 per black and white page. Each of these categories of expenses does not exceed the maximum rate set by the Local Rules or Local Guidelines. These charges are intended to cover Weil’s direct operating costs, which are not incorporated into Weil’s hourly billing rates. Only clients who actually use services of the types set forth in Exhibit D are separately charged for such services. The effect of including such expenses as part of the hourly billing rates would impose that cost upon clients who do not 15

32

require extensive photocopying and other facilities and services. The amount of the standard photocopying charge is intended to allow Weil to cover the related expenses of its photocopying service. A determination of the actual expenses per page for photocopying, however, is dependent on both the volume of copies and the total expenses attributable to photocopying on an annual basis. 42. Weil has made every effort to minimize its costs in these cases. The actual expenses incurred in providing professional services were absolutely necessary, reasonable, and justified under the circumstances to serve the needs of the Debtors. Requested Compensation Should Be Allowed 43. Section 331 of the Bankruptcy Code provides for interim compensation of professionals and incorporates the substantive standards of section 330 to govern the Court’s award of such compensation. 11 U.S.C. § 331. Section 330 provides that a Court may award a professional employed under section 327 of the Bankruptcy Code “reasonable compensation for actual, necessary services rendered” and “reimbursement for actual, necessary expenses.” 11 U.S.C. § 330(a)(1). Section 330 also sets forth the criteria for the award of such compensation and reimbursement: In determining the amount of reasonable compensation to be awarded to . . . . [a] professional person, the court shall consider the nature, the extent, and the value of such services, taking into account all relevant factors, including – (A) the time spent on such services; (B) the rates charged for such services; (C) whether the services were necessary to the administration of, or beneficial at the time at which the service was rendered toward the completion of, a case under this title; 16

(D) whether the services were performed within a reasonable amount of time commensurate with the complexity, importance, and nature of the problem, issue, or task addressed; (E) with respect to a professional person, whether the person is board certified or otherwise has demonstrated skill and experience in the bankruptcy field; and (F) whether the compensation is reasonable based on the customary compensation charged by comparably skilled practitioners in cases other than cases under this title. Id. § 330(a)(3). 44. In the instant case, Weil submits that the services for which it seeks compensation and the expenditures for which it seeks reimbursement in this Application were necessary for and beneficial to the preservation and maximization of value for all stakeholders and to the orderly administration of the Debtors’ Chapter 11 Cases. Such services and expenditures were necessary to and in the best interests of the Debtors’ estates and creditors. The compensation requested herein is reasonable in light of the nature, extent, and value of such services to the Debtors, their estates, and all parties in interest. Moreover, Weil has voluntarily agreed to reduce its fees by $26,139.00. 45. Compensation for the foregoing services as requested is commensurate with the complexity, importance, and nature of the problems, issues, and tasks involved. The professional services were performed expeditiously and efficiently. Groups of the same Weil attorneys were utilized for similar tasks in this case to minimize the costs of intra-Weil communication and background education about circumstances surrounding these Chapter 11 Cases. 46. In sum, the services rendered by Weil were necessary and beneficial to the Debtors’ estates and were consistently performed in a timely manner commensurate with the 17

34

complexity, importance, and nature of the issues involved. Accordingly, approval of the compensation for professional services and reimbursement of expenses sought herein is warranted. Notice 47. Notice of this Application has been provided to parties in interest in accordance with the Interim Compensation Order. Weil submits that, in view of the facts and circumstances, such notice is sufficient and no other or further notice need be provided. 48. No previous request for the relief sought herein has been made by Weil to this or any other court. [Remainder of page intentionally left blank.] 18

Conclusion 49. Weil respectfully requests that the Court (i) award interim allowance of Weil’s compensation for professional services rendered during the twenty-three (23) month Compensation Period in the amount of $359,207.65, consisting of $354,272.00 in fees and $4,935.65 in actual and necessary expenses, in all instances as incurred during the Compensation Period, and that such allowance be without prejudice to Weil’s right to seek additional compensation for services performed and expenses incurred during the Compensation Period, which were not processed at the time of this Application, (ii) direct payment of the difference between the amounts allowed and any amounts previously paid pursuant to the Interim Compensation Order, and (iii) grant such other and further relief as is just.

Barr, hereby certify that: 1. I am a partner of the applicant firm, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP (“Weil”), which serves as counsel to certain of the debtors in the above-captioned Chapter 11 Cases (the “Debtors”).2 2. This certification is made in respect of Weil’s compliance with the General Order M-412 (Order Establishing Procedures for Monthly Compensation and Reimbursement of Expenses of Professionals, dated December 21, 2010 (Gonzalez, C.J.)) (“Order M-412”), Administrative Order M-447 (Amended Guidelines for Fees and Disbursements for Professionals in Southern District of New York Bankruptcy Cases, dated January 29, 2013 (Morris, C.J.)) (“Order M-447”), and the U.S. Trustee Guidelines for Reviewing Applications for Compensation and Reimbursement of Expenses Filed under 11 U.S.C. § 330 by Attorneys in Larger Chapter 11 Cases, effective November 1, 2013 (the “U.S. Trustee Guidelines”; together with Order M-412 and Order M-447, the “Fee Guidelines”), the Bankruptcy Code, the Bankruptcy Rules, the Local Rules, and any further order of the Court, including but not limited to, this Court’s Order Establishing Procedures for Monthly Compensation and Reimbursement of Expenses of Professionals [ECF No. 199] (the “Interim Compensation Order”) for all professional services performed and expenses incurred after the Engagement Date. 2 As used herein, the term “Debtors” shall not refer to CFG Peru Investments Pte. Limited (Singapore). 2

3. This certification is made in connection with Weil’s application, dated October 1, 2021 for interim compensation and reimbursement of expenses for the period commencing September 1, 2019 through and including July 31, 2021 in accordance with the Fee Guidelines (the “Application”).3 4. Pursuant to section B(1) of the Local Guidelines, I certify that: a. I have read the Application. b. To the best of my knowledge, information, and belief formed after reasonable inquiry, the fees and disbursements sought fall within the Local Guidelines. c. The fees and disbursements sought are billed at rates in accordance with those customarily charged by Weil and generally accepted by Weil’s clients. d. In providing a reimbursable service, Weil does not make a profit on that service, whether the service is performed by Weil in-house or through a third party. 5. Pursuant to section B(2) of the Local Guidelines, and as required by the Interim Compensation Order, I certify that Weil has complied with provisions requiring it to provide the Notice Parties (as defined in the Interim Compensation Order) with a statement of Weil’s fees and disbursements accrued during the previous month, although such statements were not always provided within the exact timetables set forth in the Interim Compensation Order. 6. Pursuant to section B(3) of the Local Guidelines, I certify that the Debtors and the U.S. Trustee are each being provided with a copy of the Application. 7. Exhibit E to the Application compares the blended hourly rate billed by attorneys and paralegals across Weil’s U.S. offices for the 12 month period ending July 31, 3 Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Application. 3

2021 (the “U.S. Blended Rate”) with the blended hourly rate billed by attorneys and paralegals to the Debtors in connection with its Chapter 11 Cases during the Compensation Period (the “Applicable China Fishery Blended Rate”). The Applicable China Fishery Blended Rate was lower than the U.S. Blended Rate for all professionals for the Compensation Period. Weil does not charge a premium for bankruptcy related services as compared to other services. 8. Weil discussed its rates and fees with the Debtors at the outset of these Chapter 11 Cases. Due to the transition of substantially all workstreams to Klestadt, Weil estimated incurring $15,000.00 per month (or less) in fees and expenses (the “Budget”). Taking into account the twenty-three (23) month Compensation Period, the total Budget amounted to $345,000.00. In the event Weil had been asked to perform a significant workstream for the Debtors, Weil would have provided a specific budget for the project. No such projects arose. 9. In accordance with the UST Guidelines, Weil responds to the questions identified therein as follows: Question 1: Did Weil agree to any variations from, or alternatives to, Weil’s standard or customary billing rates, fees or terms for services pertaining to this engagement that were provided during the Compensation Period? If so, please explain. Answer: No. Question 2: If the fees sought in the Application as compared to the fees budgeted for the time period covered by the Application are higher by 10% or more, did Weil discuss the reasons for the variation with the client? Answer: N/A Question 3: Have any of the professionals included in the Application varied their hourly rate based on geographic location of the bankruptcy case? Answer: No. 4

41

Question 4: Does the Application include time or fees related to reviewing or revising time records or preparing, reviewing or revising invoices? If so, please quantify by hours and fees. Answer: The Application includes time or fees related to reviewing time records or preparing or reviewing invoices in connection with the preparation of monthly fee statements and invoices. The total time expended for such matters during the Compensation Period is included within Task Codes 003 and 027. Question 5: Does the Application include time or fees for reviewing time records to redact any privileged or other confidential information? If so, please quantify hours and fees. Answer: As part of the ordinary review of time records to ensure compliance with the UST Guidelines, certain information may be redacted or edited to protect privileged or confidential information. Any time expended on reviewing and redacting time records for privileged or confidential is included within Task Codes 003 and 027. Question 6: Does the Application include any rate increases since Weil’s retention in these cases? If so, did the client review and approve those rate increases in advance? Did the client agree when retaining the law firm to accept all future rate increases? Answer: Yes. Dated: October 1, 2021 New York, New York /s/ Matthew S. Barr Matthew S. Barr 5
