In the Application, Ankura notes that its professional fees for the applicable period from June 22, 2021, through August 31, 2021 (the “Supplemental Period”), were $291,652.00. However, understanding the liquidity concerns involved with these cases and after discussions with the Trustee, Ankura proposes to reduce its fees for the Supplemental Period to $195,000.00, which is a reduction of $96,652.00, or approximately 33% of Ankura’s Supplemental Period fees. Ankura also currently holds a retainer in amount of $227,150.65 (the “Retainer Amount”). After discussion with the Chapter 7 Trustee (the “Trustee”), with the Court’s permission Ankura proposes to draw the Supplemental Period fees from the retainer and apply the remaining retainer amount of $32,150.65 towards Ankura’s engagement with the Trustee, which is set for hearing before the Court on September 8, 2021. Ankura does not seek reimbursement for any expenses in the Application. A copy of the Application may be obtained from the Clerk of the United States Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of Texas, 515 Rusk, Houston, Texas 77002.
