363 Sale of Independent Building Security Guard Company

Available Net Loss Carry-Forward: One of Debtor’s most significant assets is a roughly $9 million NOL carryover tax credit. To capture the value of this credit, potential purchasers may be interested in acquiring the stock in Debtor rather than its assets through the 363 Sale. The Debtor has indicated its willingness to cooperate in structuring a sale of capital stock to accommodate IRS NOL rules.

The Sale Process and Key Dates: The Sale Process is a two-step process with offers due on or before 5:00 p.m. August 12, 2022. Qualified Bidders, as defined in the Sale Procedure Term Sheet filed with the court, and attached to this memorandum, will have the opportunity to overbid a Stalking Horse during an auction on September 16, 2022.

Stalking Horse: The Debtor will entertain a Stalking Horse bidder with bid protection consisting of a Break-up Fee of $75,000 and an Initial Overbid of $150,000.

Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA): The approved NDA form is available by contacting Seth R. Freeman or George Demos by email or telephone above.
