The Vehicles and Business Assets will be sold as a single lot or, at Secured Party’s discretion, in separate lots. The Secured Party shall determine, in its sole discretion, which bid or combination of bids is the highest qualified bid(s) for the Vehicles and Business Assets.

Any bidder wishing to make a bid at the Sale for any of the Vehicles and Business Assets must deliver to Rally Capital Services, LLC an initial deposit in immediately available funds (wire transfer or cashier’s check) in the amount of $125,000, with such deposit to be received by Rally Capital Services, LLC no later than 24 hours before the start of the Sale.

If the Secured Party accepts a bid(s), and such successful bid(s) is/are fully paid, the successful bidder(s) will receive a Quitclaim Bill of Sale and delivery of any applicable titles or registrations upon removal of the purchased property from the Locations. If any successful bidder fails to pay the full balance of the successful bid or bids within twenty-four hours following the conclusion of the Sale, or fails to remove the purchased property from the Locations within 7 business days following the conclusion of the Sale, such bidder will forfeit its bid deposit to the Secured Party, and the Vehicles and/or Business Assets subject to such bid may, if the Secured Party chooses, be sold to the next highest bidder (s), without prejudice to or waiver of the Secured Party’s rights and remedies against the defaulting highest bidder(s).

Such additional or modified terms may be announced at the Sale. The Secured Party further reserves the right, before or during the Sale, to determine the qualifications of any bidder, including the ability to make timely payment of the full purchase price for the assets purchased.
