HUGHES HUBBARD & REED LLP One Battery Park Plaza New York, New York 10004 Telephone: (212) 837-6000 Facsimile: (212) 422-4726 Attorneys for James W. Giddens, Trustee for the SIPA Liquidation of Lehman Brothers Inc. UNITED STATES BANKRUPTCY COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK In re LEHMAN BROTHERS INC., Case No. 08-01420 (SCC) SIPA Debtor. TRUSTEE’S MOTION FOR AN ORDER PURSUANT TO SECTION 503(a) OF THE BANKRUPTCY CODE AND BANKRUPTCY RULE 3003(c)(3) ESTABLISHING A FOURTH SUPPLEMENTAL DEADLINE FOR FILING REQUESTS FOR PAYMENT OF CERTAIN ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES AND PROCEDURES RELATING THERETO AND APPROVING THE FORM AND MANNER OF NOTICE THEREOF TO THE HONORABLE SHELLEY C. CHAPMAN, UNITED STATES BANKRUPTCY JUDGE: James W. Giddens (the “Trustee”), as Trustee for the liquidation of the business of Lehman Brothers Inc. (the “Debtor” or “LBI”) under the Securities Investor Protection Act of 1970, as amended, 15 U.S.C. sections 78aaa et seq. (“SIPA”),1 respectfully represents: Preliminary Statement 1. This Court has entered Administrative Bar Date Orders establishing Administrative Bar Dates to file proofs of claim for Administrative Expenses (all defined and described below) arising from September 19, 2008 to and including May 31, 2020. As the Trustee advances preparation for effectuating the eighth and final distribution and the Court- 1. References to SIPA refer to the statutory sections in effect as of the commencement of LBI’s liquidation.

approved voluntary supplemental distribution (see ECF No. 15305), along with other estate closure initiatives, the Trustee believes it prudent to establish a fourth supplemental administrative bar date to file proofs of claim for Administrative Expenses arising from June 1, 2020 to and including December 31, 2021 (the “Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Period”). Establishing a Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date (as defined below) at this time will allow the Trustee to fix the amount of Administrative Expenses incurred by the LBI estate during the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Period prior to the Trustee initiating such distributions. 2. As the estate has been in a state of substantial completion with a focus on wind-down and closure activities during the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Period, the Trustee believes that only a narrow group of vendors, service providers, professionals, taxing authorities and the like may have incurred allowable Administrative Expenses in accordance with the Bankruptcy Code against the LBI estate during the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Period. The Trustee has been paying such Administrative Expenses in accordance with this Court’s orders, the Bankruptcy Code, and SIPA. 3. For the reasons provided herein, the Trustee respectfully requests this Court’s authority to establish the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date (as defined below) to ensure that similar Administrative Expenses, if any, are appropriately accounted for. While the Trustee believes there will be few, if any, valid claims, this Motion would provide certainty and aid in the closure of the LBI estate. SIPC has reviewed the Motion and supports the relief requested herein. SIPC agrees with the Trustee that this is the appropriate time in the SIPA Proceeding to seek to fix a Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date.

Background 4. On September 19, 2008 (the “Filing Date”), the Honorable Gerard E. Lynch, United States District Court Judge for the Southern District of New York, entered the Order Commencing Liquidation of LBI (the “LBI Liquidation Order,” ECF. No. 1) pursuant to the provisions of SIPA in the case captioned Securities Investor Protection Corporation v. Lehman Brothers Inc., Case No. 08-CIV-8119 (GEL). The LBI Liquidation Order, inter alia, (i) appointed the Trustee for the liquidation of the business of LBI pursuant to section 78eee(b)(3) of SIPA; and (ii) removed the case to this Court pursuant to section 78eee(b)(4) of SIPA, in the case captioned In re Lehman Brothers Inc., Case No. 08-01420 (SCC) (the “SIPA Proceeding”). 5. On November 7, 2008, the Court entered the Order Approving Form and Manner of Publication and Mailing of Notice of Commencement; Specifying Procedures and Forms for Filing, Determination, and Adjudication of Claims; Fixing a Meeting of Customers and Creditors; and Fixing Interim Reporting Pursuant to SIPA (the “Claims Process Order,” ECF No. 241). Beginning on December 1, 2008, consistent with SIPA section 78fff-2(a)(1), the Trustee mailed more than 905,000 claims packages with filing information to former LBI customers and other potential claimants (the “Claims Process Notice”) and posted claims filing information on the Trustee’s website (www.lehmantrustee.com) and SIPC’s website (www.sipc.org). The Trustee also published notice of the claims process in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times. 6. Pursuant to SIPA section 78fff-2(a)(3) and the Claims Process Order, customer claims seeking maximum protection under SIPA must have been received by the Trustee on or before January 30, 2009. All customer claims and general creditor claims must

6

have been received by the Trustee by June 1, 2009 (the “Pre-Filing Date Claim Bar Date”). A copy of the Claims Process Order was made publicly available at www.lehmantrustee.com. 7. On September 19, 2013, the Court entered the Order Pursuant to Section 503(a) of the Bankruptcy Code and Bankruptcy Rule 3003(c)(3) Establishing the Deadline for Filing Requests for Payment of Certain Administrative Expenses and Procedures Relating Thereto and Approving the Form and Manner of Notice Thereof (the “Administrative Bar Date Order,” ECF No. 7288). The Administrative Bar Date Order established the deadline of October 31, 2013 for filing proofs of claim for Administrative Expenses arising from September 19, 2008 to and including August 31, 2013. 8. On October 20, 2016, the Court entered the Order Pursuant to Section 503(a) of the Bankruptcy Code and Bankruptcy Rule 3003(c)(3) Establishing the Supplemental Deadline for Filing Requests for Payment of Certain Administrative Expenses and Procedures Relating Thereto and Approving the Form and Manner of Notice Thereof (the “First Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Order,” ECF No. 13926). The First Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Order established the deadline of November 30, 2016 for filing proofs of claim for Administrative Expenses arising from September 1, 2013 to and including October 31, 2016. 9. On February 21, 2018, the Court entered the Order Pursuant to Section 503(a) of the Bankruptcy Code and Bankruptcy Rule 3003(c)(3) Establishing the Second Supplemental Deadline for Filing Requests for Payment of Certain Administrative Expenses and Procedures Relating Thereto and Approving the Form and Manner of Notice Thereof (the “Second Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Order,” ECF No. 14523). The Second Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Order established the deadline of April 2, 2018 for filing

7

proofs of claim for Administrative Expenses arising from November 1, 2016 to and including February 28, 2018. 10. On June 9, 2020, the Court entered the Order Pursuant to Section 503(a) of the Bankruptcy Code and Bankruptcy Rule 3003(c)(3) Establishing the Third Supplemental Deadline for Filing Requests for Payment of Certain Administrative Expenses and Procedures Relating Thereto and Approving the Form and Manner of Notice Thereof (the “Third Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Order,” ECF No. 15114, and collectively with the Administrative Bar Date Order, the First Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Order, the Second Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Order, and the Third Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Order, the “Administrative Bar Date Orders”). The Third Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Order established the deadline of July 20, 2020 for filing proofs of claim for Administrative Expenses arising from March 1, 2018 to and including May 31, 2020. 11. An administrative claim filed by the New York City Department of Finance is the only claim for Administrative Expense asserted pursuant to the Administrative Bar Date Orders that remains outstanding. The Trustee maintains a reserve of $77,035 with respect to this claim. The Trustee anticipates filing an objection to this claim prior to year-end. Jurisdiction 12. Following removal to this Court for all purposes as required for SIPA cases by section 78eee(b)(4) of SIPA, this Court has “all of the jurisdiction, powers, and duties conferred by [SIPA] upon the court to which the application for the issuance of the protective decree was made.” 15 U.S.C. § 78eee(b)(4). 13. Venue is proper in this Court pursuant to SIPA section 78eee(a)(3) and 15 U.S.C. section 78aa.

Relief Requested 14. By this motion (the “Motion”), the Trustee requests that, pursuant to section 503(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, as made applicable to the SIPA Proceeding pursuant to SIPA sections 78fff(b) and 78fff-1(a), and Bankruptcy Rule 3003(c)(3), the Court: a) establish the deadline for each person (as defined in section 101(41) of the Bankruptcy Code) or entity (including, without limitation, individuals, partnerships, corporations, joint ventures, governmental units,2 and trusts) to file a proof of claim (a “Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proof of Claim”) for certain Administrative Expenses against the LBI estate on or before January 31, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. (Prevailing Eastern Time), or such other date as this Court directs (the “Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date”), with respect to Administrative Expenses arising from June 1, 2020 to and including December 31, 2021; b) approve the proposed supplemental Administrative Proof of Claim form (the “Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proof of Claim Form”) attached as Annex I to the proposed order (the “Proposed Order”) annexed hereto as Exhibit A; c) approve the proposed procedures for filing Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proofs of Claim; and d) approve the proposed procedures for notice of the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date, including, among other things, the form of notice substantially in the form attached as Annex II to the Proposed Order (the “Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Notice”). 15. For purposes of this Motion, the term “Administrative Expenses” shall mean (a) any right to payment, whether or not such right is reduced to judgment, liquidated, unliquidated, fixed, contingent, matured, unmatured, disputed, undisputed, legal, equitable, secured or unsecured, and (b) any right to an equitable remedy for breach of performance if such breach gives rise to a right of payment, whether or not such right to an equitable remedy is reduced to judgment, fixed, contingent, matured, unmatured, disputed, undisputed, secured or unsecured, that (c) arises under sections 365(d)(3), 365(d)(5), or 503(b)(1) through (8) of the 2. Governmental units shall be ascribed the meaning as provided in section 101(27) of the Bankruptcy Code.

9

Bankruptcy Code (excluding, for the avoidance of doubt, claims arising under section 503(b)(9) (“503(b)(9) Claims”)) and (d) first arose (or, only in the case of unexpired leases of real and personal property, accrued) as to or against the LBI estate during the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Period. 16. The Trustee further requests that section 503(b)(1)(D) of the Bankruptcy Code be waived as to any Administrative Expenses and that the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date and all filing requirements thereto apply in all respects to governmental units. 17. For the avoidance of doubt, this Motion and the Proposed Order do not in any way extend the deadline for holders of pre-Filing Date customer or general creditor claims, including any 503(b)(9) Claims, to file proofs of claim relating thereto, which deadline was established pursuant to SIPA section 78fff-2(a)(3) and the Claims Process Order, and does not require claimants who have previously filed claims to do anything further. The deadline to file pre-Filing Date claims has long expired and the Trustee has issued determinations allowing or denying all customer claims, completed the distribution process for customer claims, and closed the customer estate. Nor does this Motion or the Proposed Order extend in any way the deadlines established by the Administrative Bar Date Orders. The Motion applies only to (i) a narrow potential class of vendors or service providers who may have provided some post-Filing Date services to the Trustee during the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Period that have not otherwise been compensated or (ii) potential claims, if any, by taxing authorities related to the continuing wind-down and closure efforts during the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Period.

10

Fixing the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date at this Time Is Justified 18. Section 503(a) of the Bankruptcy Code provides that “[a]n entity may timely file a request for payment of an administrative expense, or may tardily file such request if permitted by the court for cause.” 11 U.S.C. § 503(a) (emphasis added). Section 503(a) of the Bankruptcy Code permits the establishment of deadlines to file claims for administrative expenses and has been used to establish administrative bar dates in other proceedings before this Court. See Administrative Bar Date Orders; accord In re MF Global Inc., Case No. 11-2790 (MG) (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. July 31, 2015) (ECF No. 8839) (establishing supplemental administrative bar date as part of wind-down of SIPA liquidation); In re MF Global Holdings Ltd., et al., Case No. 11-15059 (MG) (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Feb. 15, 2013) (ECF No. 1091) (setting a bar date and procedures for filing administrative proofs of claim). Furthermore, Bankruptcy Rule 3003(c) provides that the Court shall fix the time within which proofs of claim must be filed. 19. The Trustee has commenced the estate closure process. To this end, the Trustee must fix the amount of Administrative Expenses incurred by the estate during the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Period. Additionally, the Trustee believes that administrative cost savings can be achieved if he is able to wind down the Administrative Expenses claims process in as timely a fashion as possible. If a fourth supplemental deadline to file claims for Administrative Expenses is not established, general estate claims administration may be unnecessarily protracted and the Trustee may be required to expend a considerable amount of funds and resources resolving such claims when efforts would be better directed towards closing the estate. 20. As the Trustee has been conducting a SIPA liquidation, rather than operating an ongoing business, he believes that only a narrow group of vendors, service

11

providers, professionals, taxing authorities, and the like may have incurred Administrative Expenses in accordance with the Bankruptcy Code during the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Period. The Trustee has been paying such Administrative Expenses in accordance with this Court’s orders, the Bankruptcy Code, and SIPA. 21. Therefore, the circumstances of the SIPA Proceeding justify the setting of the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date at this time. The Proposed Procedures for Filing Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proofs of Claim 22. The Trustee proposes the following procedures for filing the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proofs of Claim: a) Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proofs of Claim against the LBI estate must: (i) be written in the English language; (ii) be denominated in lawful currency of the United States; (iii) conform substantially to the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proof of Claim Form, which can be obtained from the Trustee’s website (www.lehmantrustee.com); (iv) set forth with specificity the legal and factual basis for the alleged claim; (v) include supporting documentation or an explanation as to why such documentation is not available; and (vi) be signed by the claimant or, if the claimant is not an individual, by an authorized agent of the claimant. b) Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proofs of Claim shall be deemed timely only if actually received by the Trustee’s Court-approved claims agent, Epiq Corporate Restructuring, LLC (“Epiq”), on or before the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date, at the following address: If by hand delivery or overnight courier: Epiq Corporate Restructuring, LLC Attn: Lehman Brothers Inc. Claims Processing 10300 SW Allen Blvd. Beaverton, OR 97005 If by first-class mail: Lehman Brothers Inc. Claims Processing c/o Epiq Corporate Restructuring, LLC P.O. Box 4421 Beaverton, OR 97076-4421

12

c) Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proofs of Claim sent by facsimile, telecopy, or electronic transmission will not be accepted. d) The following persons or entities are not required to file a Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proof of Claim on or before the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date with respect to Administrative Expenses that arose during the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Period: (i) any person or entity that holds a claim for Administrative Expenses that has been allowed by an order of this Court entered on or before the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date; (ii) any person or entity whose claim for Administrative Expenses has been paid or otherwise satisfied in full; (iii) any person or entity who is a professional advisor (i.e. counsel, financial advisors, accountants, claims agents) retained by the Trustee, including all counsel retained pursuant to orders of the Bankruptcy Court and the District Court, and all other professionals retained, with permission from the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”), pursuant to SIPA section 78fff-1(a)(1), and SIPC itself; and (iv) any holder of a claim for Administrative Expenses who has already properly filed a Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proof of Claim with Epiq. Consequences of Failure to File a Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proof of Claim 23. The Trustee requests that any holder of a claim for Administrative Expenses that is required to file a Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proof of Claim in the form and manner specified herein, but fails to do so on or before the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date, shall be forever barred, estopped, and enjoined from asserting such claim against the LBI estate (or filing any proof of claim with respect thereto), and the LBI estate, its successors, and property shall be forever discharged from any and all indebtedness or liability with respect to such claim.

13

The Proposed Procedures for Serving Notice of the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date 24. Pursuant to Bankruptcy Rules 2002(a)(7), (f), and (l), the Trustee proposes to provide notice of the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date in accordance with the following procedures: a) By no later than December 23, 2021, the Trustee shall cause to be mailed a Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Notice and a Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proof of Claim Form to the following parties (the “Notice Parties”): (i) all taxing authorities actually known to the Trustee as having filed claims against the LBI estate, or otherwise delivered notices of such claims on the Trustee, or with whom the Trustee has filed tax returns since the Filing Date; (ii) all vendors or other parties actually known to the Trustee as having provided services to the LBI estate; (iii) SIPC, the United States Department of Treasury, the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, and all applicable governmental entities; and (iv) all parties who have requested notice pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 2002 and are otherwise listed on the LBI Master Service List pursuant to the Amended Case Management Order (ECF No. 3466), as modified by the Order Modifying Amended Case Management Order Solely as to the Master Service List (ECF No. 15802). b) The Trustee shall also cause the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proof of Claim Form and Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Notice to be posted on his website (www.lehmantrustee.com). 25. The Trustee believes that it is appropriate to supplement notice of the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date by providing notice by publication consistent with Bankruptcy Rule 2002(l) (“The court may order notice by publication if it finds that notice by mail is impracticable or that it is desirable to supplement the notice.”). Such notice is appropriate for (i) those holders of a claim for Administrative Expenses to whom no other notice was sent and who are unknown or not reasonably ascertainable by the Trustee; (ii) known

14

holders of a claim for Administrative Expenses with addresses unknown by the Trustee; and (iii) claimants with potential claims for Administrative Expenses unknown by the Trustee. Accordingly, the Trustee proposes to publish notice of the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date once in a national edition of The Wall Street Journal. Similar mailing and publication notice provisions regarding an administrative bar date have been approved by this Court in other large proceedings. See, e.g., Administrative Bar Date Order; In re Motors Liquidation Co., et al., Case No. 09-50026 (REG) (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Dec. 14, 2010) (ECF No. 8099). The Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Notice 26. The proposed Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Notice substantially conforms to the form annexed to the revised Procedural Guidelines for Filing Requests for Orders to Set the Last Date for Filing Proof of Claim, established by the Board of Judges for the Southern District of New York dated December 1, 2015 (the “Procedural Guidelines”).3 See Local Rules of Bankruptcy Practice and Procedure of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the “Local Rules”) Rule 3003-1. The Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Notice notifies parties of: a) the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date; b) who must file a Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proof of Claim; c) the procedure for filing a Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proof of Claim; d) the consequences for failing to timely file a Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proof of Claim; and e) where parties can find further information. 3. While the Procedural Guidelines, by their terms, only apply to Chapter 11 cases and do not apply to a request to establish a deadline for filing administrative claims in any proceeding before the Court, the Trustee has attempted to incorporate aspects of the Procedural Guidelines wherever appropriate.

15

The Notice Procedures are Reasonably Calculated to Provide Due and Proper Notice 27. Bankruptcy Rule 2002(a)(7) requires the Trustee to provide at least twenty-one (21) days’ notice of a deadline to file proofs of claim. Bankruptcy Rule 2002(p)(2) requires thirty (30) days’ notice to creditors with a foreign address. Additionally, the Procedural Guidelines provide that, in most cases, creditors should have at least thirty-five (35) days’ notice of a deadline to file proofs of claim. 28. Assuming the Proposed Order is entered on or about December 16, 2021, Epiq will have seven (7) days, or until December 23, 2021, to complete the mailing of the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date Notices. Thus, Epiq’s mailing would be completed thirty-nine (39) days prior to January 31, 2022, which provides a notice period that is consistent with the requirements set forth under the Bankruptcy Code, Bankruptcy Rules, Local Rules, and Procedural Guidelines. Accordingly, the Trustee submits that the proposed Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date and notice procedures provide sufficient time for all parties in interest, including foreign holders of a claim for Administrative Expenses, to assert their claims for Administrative Expenses. Further, because the proposed procedures will provide notice to known parties in interest directly and to any unknown parties in interest by publication, the Trustee submits that the proposed notice procedures are reasonably calculated to provide notice to all parties, or their counsel, that may wish to assert a claim for Administrative Expenses in this proceeding. 29. Accordingly, the Trustee submits that no further or other notice of the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date is necessary and that the proposed notice procedures provide due and proper notice of the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date.

16

Objections to Claims and Reservation of Rights 30. The Trustee reserves all rights and defenses with respect to any Fourth Supplemental Administrative Proof of Claim. Further, the Trustee reserves the right to seek a further order of this Court to fix a deadline by which holders of administrative claims not subject to the Fourth Supplemental Administrative Bar Date, as provided in Paragraph 23(d) above, must file proofs of claim against the LBI estate or be forever barred from doing so. 31. Based on the foregoing, the Trustee submits that the relief requested herein is necessary and appropriate, is in the best interests of the LBI estate, customers, and creditors, and should be granted in all respects. Notice 32. Notice of this Motion has been provided in accordance with the Court’s Amended Case Management Order (ECF No. 3466), as modified by the Order Modifying Amended Case Management Order Solely as to the Master Service List (ECF No. 15802), and will be immediately available for inspection upon filing with the Court at the Trustee’s website, www.lehmantrustee.com. The Trustee submits that no other or further notice need be provided. No Prior Request 33. No prior motion for the relief requested herein has been made to this or any other court. Conclusion WHEREFORE, the Trustee respectfully requests that the Court grant the relief requested herein as provided in the Proposed Order annexed hereto as Exhibit A and such other and further relief as the Court deems just and proper.
