TERMS & CONDITIONS:  An Assignee’s Return of Bids Sale (the “Sale”) for all assets of North Shore will take place on March 25, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. at the offices of Rally Capital Services, LLC, 350 N. LaSalle St., Suite 1100, Chicago, IL.  The Assignee has received an offer for the purchase of the Assets from a third party purchaser for the approximate cash purchase price of Thirty-Nine Thousand Thirteen Dollars ($39,013) (the “North Shore Stalking Horse Bidder”). The Assets will be sold “AS IS, WHERE IS” with all faults and without any express or implied representations or warranties whatsoever, including, without limitation, warranties of merchantability, quiet enjoyment or fitness for a particular purpose or as to the title, value or quality of the Assets.  The Assignee reserves the right, on or prior to the Date of Sale, to modify, waive or amend any terms or conditions of the Sale or impose any other terms or conditions on the Sale, and, if the Assignee deems appropriate, to reject any bids or continue the Sale (whether for all of the Assets or separate lots) without prior notice.

To be a qualified purchaser, a party must post a cash deposit (the “Deposit”) in the form of a cashier’s check, certified check or wire transfer in the amount of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000), made payable to and delivered to the Assignee one day prior to the Sale.  All bidding for the Assets shall be conducted in the same room with the identity and bid terms of all bidders fully disclosed and on the record as recorded by a court reporter.  Any subsequent overbids for the Assets will be determined by the Assignee at the Auction; provided, however, the Assignee reserves the right to change the minimum bid from time to time during the Sale.  At the conclusion of the Asset sale, the Assignee shall declare on the record which bid has been declared the highest and best bid and accepted, for the Assets and shall recite the terms of the winning bid into the record with the concurrence of the prevailing bidder.  The balance of the purchase price for the Assets must be paid to the Assignee in available funds within twenty-four (24) hours.  If the successful bidder fails to pay the balance of his or her successful bid for the Assets, then its Deposit will be forfeited and the Assets may, at the Assignee’s option, be sold to the next highest bidder without prejudice to or waiver of the Assignee’s rights and remedies against the defaulting highest bidder.  The Assignee reserves the right to adjourn the Sale from time to time without further notice except as announced at the auction.  The Assignee further reserves the right to determine the qualifications of any bidder, including the ability to close the transaction on the terms and conditions referenced herein.

The Assets sold or to be sold are being sold as a single lot “As Is” and “Where Is” and with no express or implied warranties, representation, statements or conditions of any kind including but not limited to warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose and are to be sold in accordance with the terms and provisions set forth above.
