Item 1.01. 
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
 
On May 16, 2023, HC Liquidating, Inc., formerly known as HyreCar Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), completed the sale of substantially all of its assets (the “Transaction”) to Getaround, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Getaround”), and its wholly owned subsidiary HyreCar LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, pursuant to the terms of an asset purchase agreement entered into on May 8, 2023 (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) and approved by the Bankruptcy Court on May 15, 2023 pursuant to a Sale Order. The Transaction was subject to a competitive bidding process pursuant to certain Bidding Procedures approved by the Bankruptcy Court, in which Getaround and Holmes Motors, Inc. (“Holmes”), as the stalking horse purchaser under Section 363 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”), bid for the Company’s assets at an auction held on May 8, 2023 in Los Angeles, California (the “Auction”), and Getaround was determined to be the higher and better bid at the conclusion of the Auction. The Sale Order provides for the assumption by and assignment to Getaround of certain executory contracts and service agreements under Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code and pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Asset Purchase Agreement.
 
Copies of the various documents filed with the Bankruptcy Court can be accessed online at https://www.donlinrecano.com/Clients/hci/Index.
 
As Holmes was not the winning bidder at the Auction, the Company will pay Holmes a break-up fee of $232,500 and certain expense reimbursements not to exceed $125,000 pursuant to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement between the Company and Holmes dated March 2, 2023, as disclosed in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 8, 2023.
 
Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Asset Purchase Agreement, the aggregate consideration (collectively, the “Purchase Price”) paid by Getaround for the purchase of the assets was: (i) the Deposit required by the Bidding Procedures; (ii) Assumption of the Assumed Liabilities; and (iii) Cash at Closing in an amount equal to $8,125,956 minus (x) the Deposit amount minus (y) the aggregate amount of Seller-Responsible Vendor Liabilities paid by Getaround as of the Closing Date up to an amount not to exceed the lesser of (i) the aggregate amount of Seller-Responsible Vendor Liabilities as of the Closing Date and (ii) $500,000 (the “Cash Payment”) minus (z) the aggregate amount of fees, charges and other amounts prepaid to the Company under any Vehicle Rental Agreement for the portion of the Rental Period (as defined in the applicable Vehicle Rental Agreements) occurring from and after the Closing Date. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined shall have the meaning set forth in the Asset Purchase Agreement.
 
The Asset Purchase Agreement was subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including that the Company change its name from HyreCar Inc. As a result, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment of Certificate of Incorporation with the Delaware Secretary of State on May 16, 2023 changing its name from HyreCar Inc. to HC Liquidating, Inc.
 
The Company anticipates that proceeds from the Transaction will be insufficient to satisfy all of its debts and obligations. Consequently, it is highly unlikely that any amounts will ultimately be paid to the Company’s stockholders.
 
The foregoing summary of the Asset Purchase Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Asset Purchase Agreement dated May 8, 2023 and the Bill of Sale, Assignment and Assumption Agreement dated May 16, 2023, which are filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, to this Form 8-K and are incorporated by reference herein. The foregoing summary of the name change is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Certificate of Amendment of Certificate of Incorporation dated May 16, 2023, which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.
 
 

 
Item 2.01.
Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.
 
The information set forth above under Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K regarding the asset purchase by Getaround is incorporated herein by reference.
 
Item 5.03.
Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws, Change in Fiscal Year.
 
The information set forth above under Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K regarding the Company name change to HC Liquidating, Inc. is incorporated herein by reference.
 
Forward Looking Statements
 
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). Forward-looking statements generally relate to future events or the Company’s future financial or operating performance. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements because they contain words such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “could,” “intends,” “target,” “projects,” “contemplates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” “continue” or “budgeted” or the negative of these words or other similar terms or expressions that concern the Company’s bankruptcy filing, and its ability to continue to operate the business as a debtor-in-possession. The Company’s forward-looking statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K include, but are not limited to, statements about the Company’s plans to sell its assets pursuant to Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code and the timing of such sales and ability to satisfy closing conditions; the Company’s intention to continue operations during the Chapter 11 case; the Company’s belief that the sale process will be in the best interest of the Company and its stakeholders; and other statements regarding the Company’s strategy and future operations, performance and prospects, among others. These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties (some of which are beyond the Company’s control) or other assumptions that may cause actual results or performance to be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the risks associated with the potential adverse impact of the Chapter 11 filings on the Company’s liquidity and results of operations; changes in the Company’s ability to meet its financial obligations during the Chapter 11 process and to maintain contracts that are critical to its operations; the outcome and timing of the Chapter 11 process and any potential asset sale; the effect of the Chapter 11 filings and any potential asset sale on the Company’s relationships with vendors, regulatory authorities, employees and other third parties; possible proceedings that may be brought by third parties in connection with the Chapter 11 process or the potential asset sale; uncertainty regarding obtaining Bankruptcy Court approval of a sale of the Company’s assets or other conditions to the potential asset sale; and the timing or amount of distributions, if any, to the Company’s stakeholders. These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effects. There can be no assurance that future developments affecting the Company will be those anticipated, and the Company disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, except as required by law.

(a)    The obligations (the “Assumed Vendor Liabilities”) of Seller with respect to the Critical Vendors (which for the avoidance of doubt, shall exclude the Seller-Responsible Vendor Liabilities);

1.5      Assumption/Rejection of Certain Contracts.

 

(a)    Assumption and Assignment of Executory Contracts. Seller shall provide timely and proper written notice of the motion seeking entry of the Sale Order to all parties to any executory Contracts or unexpired leases to which Seller is a party and take all other actions reasonably necessary to provide Seller with the ability to assign any Designated Contracts to Purchaser at Closing pursuant to section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code. The Sale Order shall provide that as of and conditioned on the occurrence of the Closing, Seller shall assign or cause to be assigned to Purchaser, as applicable, all of the Contracts on the final list of Designated Contracts (all such Designated Contracts that are assigned to Purchaser at Closing or following the Closing Date pursuant to Section 1.5, the “Assigned Contracts”). Seller shall prepare a notice to be approved in connection with the motion for approval of the Sale Order and that will be served on Contract counterparties which will identify with particularity all the Contracts that might be assumed and assigned to Purchaser and that also sets forth Seller’s good faith estimate of the amounts necessary to cure any defaults under each such Contract as determined by Seller based on Seller’s books and records. The notice shall provide a process for contract counterparties to object to assumption and assignment and / or the proposed cure amounts as part of the sale process. At the Closing, Seller shall, pursuant to the Sale Order and the Assignment and Assumption Agreement(s), assume and assign to Purchaser, all Assigned Contracts. At the Closing: (i) cure costs (as contemplated in Section 365(b) of the Bankruptcy Code, the “Cure Costs”) will be paid by Purchaser, provided, however, for Assigned Contracts where the contract counterparty is a Critical Vendor, Seller shall pay the Cure Costs in an amount not to exceed the lesser of (x) the Seller-Responsible Cure Amounts and (y) $500,000 minus the Open Post-Petition Liabilities and (ii) Purchaser shall assume, and thereafter in due course and in accordance with its respective terms pay, fully satisfy, discharge and perform all of the post-Closing obligations under each Assigned Contract pursuant to section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code.

 

6

 

(b)      Non-Assignment.

 

(i)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, a Contract shall not be an Assigned Contract hereunder and shall not be assigned to, or assumed by, Purchaser to the extent that such Contract is rejected by Seller or terminated by Seller or any other party thereto, or terminates or expires by its terms, on or prior to such time as it is to be assumed by Purchaser as an Assigned Contract hereunder and is not continued or otherwise extended upon assumption.

 

(ii)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, to the extent an Acquired Asset requires a Consent or Governmental Authorization (other than, and in addition to, that of the Bankruptcy Court) in order to permit the sale or transfer to Purchaser of Seller’s rights over such asset, and such Consent or Governmental Authorization has not been obtained prior to such time as it is to be transferred by Purchaser as an Acquired Asset hereunder, such asset shall not be transferred to, or received by, Purchaser at the Closing. In the event that any Acquired Asset is deemed not to be assigned pursuant to this clause (ii), the Closing shall nonetheless take place subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein and, for the avoidance of any doubt, without any reduction of the Purchase Price, and thereafter, through the earlier of such time as such Consent or Governmental Authorization is obtained and six (6) months following the Closing (or the closing of the Bankruptcy Case, if shorter), Seller and Purchaser shall (A) use reasonable best efforts to secure such Consent or Governmental Authorization as promptly as practicable after the Closing and (B) cooperate in good faith in any lawful and commercially reasonable arrangement reasonably proposed by Purchaser which does not materially delay or otherwise materially frustrate the Debtor’s cessation of operations and wind-up of its affairs, including subcontracting, licensing, or sublicensing to Purchaser any or all of Seller’s rights and obligations with respect to any such Acquired Asset which does not materially delay or otherwise materially frustrate the Debtor’s cessation of operations and wind-up of it affairs, under which (1) Purchaser shall obtain (without infringing upon the legal rights of such third party or violating any Law) the economic rights and benefits (net of the amount of any related Tax costs imposed on Seller or its Affiliates or any direct costs associated with the retention and maintenance of such Acquired Asset incurred by Seller or its Affiliates) with respect to such Acquired Asset with respect to which the Consent or Governmental Authorization has not been obtained and (2) Purchaser shall assume any related burden and obligation with respect to such Acquired Asset. Upon satisfying any requisite Consent or Governmental Authorization requirement applicable to such Acquired Asset after the Closing, such Acquired Asset shall promptly be transferred and assigned to Purchaser in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the Sale Order and the Bankruptcy Code. Without limiting the general applicability of Section 6.4, Seller will not be obligated to pay any consideration to any third party from whom such Consent or Governmental Authorization is requested or to initiate any Action to obtain any such Consent or Governmental Authorization.

2.2     Closing. The closing of the purchase and sale of the Acquired Assets, the delivery of the Purchase Price, the assumption of the Assumed Liabilities and the consummation of the other transactions contemplated by this Agreement (the “Closing”) will take place remotely via the electronic exchange of documents and signatures at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time on the second (2nd) Business Day following full satisfaction or due waiver (by the Party entitled to the benefit of such condition) of the closing conditions set forth in Article VII (other than conditions that by their terms or nature are to be satisfied at the Closing, but subject to the satisfaction or waiver of those conditions), or at such other place and time as the Parties may agree in writing. The date on which the Closing actually occurs is referred to herein as the “Closing Date.”

 

2.3      Closing Deliveries by Seller. At or prior to the Closing, Seller shall deliver to Purchaser:

 

(a)     a bill of sale and assignment and assumption agreement in a form acceptable to the Purchaser in its reasonable discretion (the “Assignment and Assumption Agreement”) duly executed by Seller;

2.5     Post-Closing Adjustment. Within five (5) Business Days after the Closing, Seller shall deliver to Purchaser an accounting which calculates, in reasonable detail, the VRA Prepayment Amount (the “Seller-Determined Prepayment Amount”) and contemporaneously therewith, Seller shall pay Purchaser an amount equal to the Seller-Determined Prepayment Amount. Within five (5) Business Days after Purchaser’s receipt of Seller’s accounting of the VRA Prepayment Amount, Purchaser shall have the right to object to the Seller-Determined Prepayment Amount as the VRA Prepayment Amount by giving notice to Seller of such objection which includes, in reasonable detail, Purchaser’s calculation of the VRA Prepayment Amount. In the event Purchaser fails to timely object to Seller’s accounting, the Seller-Determined Prepayment Amount shall be, and is hereby deemed to be, the VRA Prepayment Amount. In the event Purchaser timely objects to Seller’s accounting, within five (5) Business Days after Seller’s receipt of Purchaser’s objection (or such later date as may be agreed upon by the Parties), the Parties shall meet and confer (in good faith) to review and discuss their respective positions with respect to calculating the VRA Prepayment Amount. If, after the meet and confer (or expiration of the time for the Parties to meet and confer), the Parties do not resolve their disputes with respect to the calculation of the VRA Prepayment Amount, either Party may seek a determination of the VRA Prepayment Amount from the Bankruptcy Court as a contested motion under Bankruptcy Rule 9014, provided, however, if the Parties did not meet and confer such Party shall not be entitled to seek such determination from the Bankruptcy Court unless such Party has attempted in good faith to meet and confer. Within three (3) Business Days after the VRA Prepayment Amount is agreed upon by the Parties or entry of an order by the Bankruptcy Court determining the VRA Prepayment Amount, Seller shall pay Purchaser the difference between the VRA Prepayment Amount and the Seller-Determined Prepayment Amount.

(b)     Each of Seller and Purchaser shall (i) appear formally or informally in the Bankruptcy Court if reasonably requested by the other Party or required by the Bankruptcy Court in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or the other Transaction Agreements and (ii) keep the other reasonably apprised of the status of material matters related to the Agreement, including, upon reasonable request, promptly furnishing the other with copies of notices or other communications received by such Party from the Bankruptcy Court with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or the other Transaction Agreements.

 

(c)     If an Auction is conducted, and Purchaser is not the prevailing party at the conclusion of such Auction (such prevailing party or parties, the “Successful Bidder”) but is the next highest bidder at the Auction, Purchaser shall be required to serve as a back-up bidder (the “Backup Bidder”) and keep Purchaser’s bid to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement (as the same may be revised in the Auction) open and irrevocable until the later of (i) thirty (30) days following the hearing to consider the Sale Order and (ii) such date as this Agreement is terminated in accordance with Section 8.1. If the Successful Bidder fails to consummate the applicable Alternative Transaction as a result of a breach or failure to perform on the part of such Successful Bidder, the Backup Bidder will be deemed to have the new prevailing bid, and Seller may consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement (as the same may have been improved upon in the Auction).

 

(d)     Seller and Purchaser acknowledge that this Agreement and the sale of the Acquired Assets are subject to higher and better bids and Bankruptcy Court approval.

The bidding procedures to be employed with respect to this Agreement and any Auction shall be those reflected in the Bidding Procedures Order.

 

(e)     Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, Purchaser acknowledges that Seller and its Affiliates and Advisors are and may continue soliciting inquiries, proposals or offers for the Acquired Assets in connection with any Alternative Transaction.

Purchaser agrees that it will take all actions reasonably required to assist in obtaining a Bankruptcy Court finding that there has been an adequate demonstration of adequate assurance of future performance under the Assigned Contracts, such as furnishing affidavits, non-confidential financial information and other documents or information for filing with the Bankruptcy Court and making Purchaser’s Advisors available to testify before the Bankruptcy Court.

 

14

 

(g)    Nothing in this Section 5.1 shall prevent Seller from modifying the bidding procedures as necessary or appropriate to maximize value for Seller’s estate in accordance with Seller’s fiduciary obligations.

 

5.2     Cure Costs. Subject to entry of the Sale Order, Purchaser shall, on or prior to the Closing Date (or, in the case of any Contract that is to be assigned following the Closing Date pursuant to Section 1.5, on or prior to the date of such assignment), pay the Cure Costs and cure any and all other defaults and breaches under the Assigned Contracts so that such Contracts may be assumed by Seller and assigned to Purchaser in accordance with the provisions of section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code and this Agreement; provided, however that Seller shall be responsible for paying Cure Costs associated with Assigned Contracts between Seller and Critical Vendors in an amount not to exceed the lesser of (x) the Seller-Responsible Cure Amounts and (y) $500,000 minus the Open Post-Petition Liabilities, and for curing any and all other defaults and breaches under such Assigned Contracts required to be cured under section 365(b) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Purchaser agrees that it will promptly take such actions as are reasonably requested by Seller to assist in obtaining Bankruptcy Court approval of the Sale Order, including furnishing affidavits or other documents or information for filing with the Bankruptcy Court for purposes, among others, of (x) demonstrating that Purchaser is a “good faith” purchaser under section 363(m) of the Bankruptcy Code and (y) establishing adequate assurance of future performance within the meaning of section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code.

The “reasonable best efforts” of Seller will not require Seller or any of its Affiliates or Advisors to expend any money to remedy any breach of any representation or warranty, to commence any Action, to waive or surrender any right, to modify any Contract or to waive or forego any right, remedy or condition hereunder. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Purchaser shall take, and shall cause its Affiliates to take, all actions necessary or appropriate to obtain all Governmental Authorizations and to avoid or eliminate each and every impediment under any applicable Law or otherwise so as to enable the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the other Transaction Agreements to occur as soon as possible (and in any event prior to the Outside Date).

Any provision of this Agreement or the Schedules or exhibits hereto may be (a) amended only in a writing signed by Purchaser and Seller or (b) waived only in a writing executed by the Person against which enforcement of such waiver is sought. No waiver of any provision hereunder or any breach or default thereof will extend to or affect in any way any other provision or prior or subsequent breach or default. Furthermore, neither the failure nor any delay by any Party in exercising any right, power or privilege under this Agreement or the documents referred to in this Agreement (including, without limitation, the Transaction Agreements) will operate as a waiver of such right, power or privilege, and no single or partial exercise of any such right, power or privilege will preclude any other or further exercise of such right, power or privilege or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege.

 

10.6    Third Party Beneficiaries. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, nothing expressed or referred to in this Agreement will be construed to give any Person other than the Parties and their permitted successors and assigns any legal or equitable right, remedy, cause of action or claim under or with respect to this Agreement or any provision of this Agreement.

 

10.7    Non-Recourse. This Agreement may only be enforced against, and any Action based upon, arising out of or related to this Agreement may only be brought against, the Persons that are expressly named as parties to this Agreement. Except to the extent named as a party to this Agreement, and then only to the extent of the specific obligations of such parties set forth in this Agreement, no past, present or future Advisor or Affiliate of any Party will have any Liability (whether in contract, tort, equity or otherwise) for any of the representations, warranties, covenants, agreements or other obligations or Liabilities of any of the parties to this Agreement or for any Action based upon, arising out of or related to this Agreement.

 

10.8    Severability. Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement will be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable Law, but if any provision of this Agreement is held to be prohibited by or invalid under applicable Law in any jurisdiction, such provision will be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity in such jurisdiction, without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of this Agreement or in any other jurisdiction.

 

10.9    Construction. The language used in this Agreement will be deemed to be the language chosen by the Parties to express their mutual intent, and no rule of strict construction will be applied against any Person. The headings of the sections and paragraphs of this Agreement have been inserted for convenience of reference only and will in no way restrict or otherwise modify any of the terms or provisions hereof.

 

10.10    Schedules. The Schedules have been arranged for purposes of convenience in separately numbered sections corresponding to the sections of this Agreement; provided that each section of the Schedules will be deemed to incorporate by reference all information disclosed in any other section of the Schedules and will be deemed a disclosure against any representation or warranty set forth in this Agreement, without the need for repetition or cross reference. No information set forth in the Schedules will be deemed to broaden in any way the scope of the Parties’ representations, warranties, obligations, covenants, conditions or agreements contained herein. Any description of any agreement, document, instrument, plan, arrangement or other item set forth on any Schedule is a summary only and is qualified in its entirety by the terms of such agreement, document, instrument, plan, arrangement, or item which terms will be deemed disclosed for all purposes of this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the information contained in this Agreement, in the Schedules and exhibits hereto is disclosed solely for purposes of this Agreement, and no information contained herein or therein will be deemed to be an admission by any Party to any third party of any matter whatsoever, including any violation of Law or breach of Contract.

 

25

 

10.11    Complete Agreement. This Agreement, together with the other Transaction Agreements, contains the entire agreement of the Parties respecting the sale and purchase of the Acquired Assets and the Assumed Liabilities and the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby and supersedes all prior agreements among the Parties respecting the sale and purchase of the Acquired Assets and the Assumed Liabilities and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the other Transaction Agreements. In the event an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation arises with respect to this Agreement, the terms and provisions of the execution version of this Agreement will control and prior drafts of this Agreement and the documents referenced herein will not be considered or analyzed for any purpose (including in support of parol evidence proffered by any Person in connection with this Agreement), will be deemed not to provide any evidence as to the meaning of the provisions hereof or the intent of the Parties with respect hereto and will be deemed joint work product of the Parties.

 

10.12    Specific Performance. The Parties agree that irreparable damage, for which monetary relief, even if available, would not be an adequate remedy, would occur in the event that any provision of this Agreement is not performed in accordance with its specific terms or is otherwise breached, including if any of the Parties fails to take any action required of it hereunder to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. It is accordingly agreed that (a) the Parties will be entitled to an injunction or injunctions, specific performance or other equitable relief to prevent breaches, or threatened breaches of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions hereof and its rights hereunder in the courts described in Section 10.13 without proof of damages or otherwise, this being in addition to any other remedy to which they are entitled under this Agreement, or other rights and remedies existing in its favor at law or in equity, and (b) the right of specific performance, injunctive relief and other equitable relief is an integral part of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and without that right, neither Seller nor Purchaser would have entered into this Agreement. The Parties acknowledge and agree that any Party pursuing an injunction or injunctions or other Order to prevent breaches of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions of this Agreement in accordance with this Section 10.12 will not be required to provide any bond or other security in connection with any such Order. The remedies available to Seller pursuant to this Section 10.12 will be in addition to any other remedy to which it was entitled at law or in equity, and the election to pursue an injunction or specific performance will not restrict, impair or otherwise limit Seller from seeking to collect or collecting damages. In no event will this Section 10.12 be used, alone or together with any other provision of this Agreement, to require Seller to remedy any breach of any representation or warranty of Seller made herein.

 

26

 

10.13    Jurisdiction and Exclusive Venue. Each of the Parties irrevocably agrees that any Action that may be based upon, arising out of, or related to this Agreement or the negotiation, execution or performance of this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby brought by any other Party or its successors or assigns will be brought and determined only in (a) the Bankruptcy Court and any federal court to which an appeal from the Bankruptcy Court may be validly taken or (b) if the Bankruptcy Court is unwilling or unable to hear such Action, in the Delaware Chancery Court and any state court sitting in the State of Delaware to which an appeal from the Delaware Chancery Court may be validly taken (or, if the Delaware Chancery Court declines to accept jurisdiction over a particular matter, any state or federal court within the state of Delaware) ((a) and (b), the “Chosen Courts”), and each of the Parties hereby irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Chosen Courts for itself and with respect to its property, generally and unconditionally, with regard to any such Action arising out of or relating to this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby. Each of the Parties agrees not to commence any Action relating thereto except in the Chosen Courts, other than Actions in any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce any Order, decree or award rendered by any Chosen Court, and no Party will file a motion to dismiss any Action filed in a Chosen Court on any jurisdictional or venue-related grounds, including the doctrine of forum non-conveniens. The Parties irrevocably agree that venue would be proper in any of the Chosen Courts, and hereby irrevocably waive any objection that any such court is an improper or inconvenient forum for the resolution of such Action. Each of the Parties further irrevocably and unconditionally consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 10.3. Nothing in this Agreement will affect the right of any Party to this Agreement to serve process in any other manner permitted by Law.

 

10.14      Governing Law; Waiver of Jury Trial.

 

(a)    Except to the extent the mandatory provisions of the Bankruptcy Code apply, this Agreement, and any Action that may be based upon, arising out of or related to this Agreement or the negotiation, execution or performance of this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby will be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal Laws of the State of Delaware applicable to agreements executed and performed entirely within such State without regards to conflicts of law principles of the State of Delaware or any other jurisdiction that would cause the Laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Delaware to apply.

 

(b)    EACH PARTY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT ANY CONTROVERSY THAT MAY ARISE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, THE TRANSACTION AGREEMENTS AND THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY AND THEREBY IS LIKELY TO INVOLVE COMPLICATED AND DIFFICULT ISSUES AND THEREFORE HEREBY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION BASED ON, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, ANY TRANSACTION AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY AND THEREBY. EACH OF THE PARTIES AGREES AND CONSENTS THAT ANY SUCH ACTION WILL BE DECIDED BY COURT TRIAL WITHOUT A JURY AND THAT THE PARTIES TO THIS AGREEMENT MAY FILE AN ORIGINAL COUNTERPART OF A COPY OF THIS AGREEMENT WITH ANY COURT AS WRITTEN EVIDENCE OF THE CONSENT OF THE PARTIES TO THE IRREVOCABLE WAIVER OF THEIR RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY. EACH PARTY (I) CERTIFIES THAT NO OTHER PARTY OR ADVISOR THEREOF HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER AND (II) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION.

10.15    Counterparts and PDF. This Agreement, the Transaction Agreements and any other agreements referred to herein or therein, and any amendments hereto or thereto, may be executed in multiple counterparts, any one of which need not contain the signature of more than one party hereto or thereto, but all such counterparts taken together will constitute one and the same instrument. Any counterpart, to the extent signed and delivered by means of electronic signature (including signature via DocuSign or similar services), a photographic, photostatic, facsimile, portable document format (.pdf), or similar reproduction of such signed writing using a facsimile machine or electronic mail, will be treated in all manner and respects as an original Contract and will be considered to have the same binding legal effects as if it were the original signed version thereof delivered in person.

 

10.16    Bulk Sales Laws. The Parties intend that pursuant to section 363(f) of the Bankruptcy Code, the transfer of the Acquired Assets shall be free and clear of any Encumbrances in the Acquired Assets including any liens or claims arising out of the bulk transfer laws except Permitted Encumbrances, and the parties shall take such steps as may be necessary or appropriate to so provide in the Sale Order. In furtherance of the foregoing, each Party hereby waives compliance by the Parties with the “bulk sales,” “bulk transfers” or similar Laws and all other similar Laws in all applicable jurisdictions in respect of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

 

10.17    Fiduciary Obligations. Nothing in this Agreement, or any document related to the transactions contemplated hereby, will require Seller or any of its officers, directors or shareholders, in each case, in their capacity as such, to take any action, or to refrain from taking any action, to the extent inconsistent with their fiduciary obligations. For the avoidance of doubt, Seller shall retain the right to pursue any transaction or restructuring strategy that, in Seller’s business judgment, may maximize the value of their estates.
