Proposed Chapter 11
Recovery Estimate $
$ 3,066,023 $ 4,344,065
in another ~6months or so I guess we'll see how close these projections were...............
skimming this old document, wonder how much of this still exists or came to pass:
F. Retention Plan
By and through the Combined Disclosure Statement and Plan, the Debtor’s interest in
proceeds from the Remaining Company Contracts will be assigned to the Liquidating Trust and
the Debtor expects that the net proceeds of the Remaining Company Contracts will provide a
significant recovery to Allowed Claims. Specifically, and as more fully set in the liquidation
analysis attached hereto as Exhibit A, the Debtor expects that expects that, for the period ending
ending March 31, 2022, the Remaining Company Contracts will generate approximately
$1,725,000 of profit, which will be upstreamed to the Debtor. Such revenue is,, subject to the
continuation of the Remaining Company Contracts, the most financially significant of which is an
investment advisory agreement between Sierra and SIC Advisors LLC, which the Debtor expects
to continue through at least December 31, 2021, subject to further extension.13
As of July 6, 2021,
13 The Debtor anticipates that Sierra’s contract will terminate on December 31, 2021, subject to further extensions to
permit Sierra Income Corporation to extend the termination date until February 28, 2022. As set forth in the Sierra
IMA and required by the SEC of all IMAs of this type, the agreement may be terminated at any time, without the
Case 21-10526-KBO Doc 244 Filed 07/06/21 Page 54 of 82
the Debtor’s subsidiaries are also currently holding approximately $3,741,806 on account of the
Remaining Company Contracts, which they are entitled to upstream to the Debtor upon completion
of the Remaining Company Contracts. Absent continuation, of the Remaining Company
Contracts, the Debtor expects that the clients will seek the return of some or all of those funds.
The Debtor therefore expects that the net proceeds of the Remaining Company Contracts will
provide a significant recovery for Allowed Claims.
Order Granting Medley LLC Liquidating Trust’s Motion Pursuant Federal Rule 2019 to Approve Settlement with Eversheds Sutherland (US) LLP (11/09/23)
No objection filed. As a result, the hearing scheduled for 11/14/23 is no longer necessary.
We're due the Post Confirmation Report for period ending 9/30 'soon'... The more I go through the last report and all events that have transpired, I think our recovery (or lack thereof) here is purely based on the results of the Allianz Tower outcome.
$0 to $1 possible(?)
Trading was around $0.50 on both pfd's if I recall correctly prior to trading halts...
.. and now we know what the 11/14 hearing was/is about......
"Eversheds agrees to make a formal written demand against the
Debtor’s insurers on or before October 20, 2023. In the event that
demand does not lead to a resolution between Eversheds and the
Debtor’s insurers, Eversheds agrees it will file a lawsuit to collect
from the Debtor’s insurers on or before March 29, 2024. "
Notwithstanding the Credit set forth above, to the extent the Liquidating Trust is closed prior to the Insurance Lawsuit being finally resolved, the Liquidating Trust shall pay the Revised Final Fee Award to Eversheds, and the Credit will be forfeited by the Liquidating Trust.
excellent: "The Settlement Agreement reduces Eversheds’ Final Fee Award (as defined
below) from $2,080,055.19 to $436,673.28, and Eversheds shall seek payment of its legal fees
from the Debtor’s insurance companies. To the extent Eversheds receives payment for its legal
fees from any insurance company, the Liquidating Trust will receive a dollar-for-dollar credit
against the $436,673.28 for every dollar Eversheds recovers. "
curious what the matters scheduled are for this 11/14 omnibus hearing or if it's just a placeholder that will be rescheduled:
ORDER SCHEDULING OMNIBUS HEARING DATE
Pursuant to Del. Bankr. L.R. 2002-1(a), the Court has scheduled the following omnibus
hearing date in the above-captioned case:
Date & Time Location

824 North Market Street, 6th Floor, Courtroom No. 3

was hoping so; fingers crossed it's 'quick'
Some disputes may be resolved through arbitration.
does anyone know if a case exists of liquidating trust vs allianz tower at this time?
well if they spent 1,000 hours to get the 'easier' $6.7mil, don't see how there will be anything left from that pool OR from the $6.4mil that is expected to be harder to get and 'discounted?' (and may take as many hours?)
are we at the point where this should just be wrapped up?
are we looking at 'anything' being left for us? maybe $1-$2mil?
just thinking aloud...................... thank God for the SEC's $10mil!
they settled? https://www.kccllc.net/medley/document/2110526230927000000000002
Status: The Liquidating Trust and Eversheds Sutherland (US) LLP have reached a
settlement regarding this matter. Accordingly, a hearing on this matter is no
Thanks for your detailed and clear explanation.
All bankruptcy stocks are allowed to trade until a Bankruptcy Judge cancels the equity, either in a Chapter 11 Reorganization or a Chapter 7 Liquidation. In rare instances the BK Judge approves a reverse split of the equity (stock) instead of cancelling the equity.
In some cases the SEC may revoke a company's stock registration(s) if the company is severely delinquent in filing Financials, in which case(s) the stock would no longer be able to trade on any public forum.....but the stock would still exist unless/until a Bankruptcy Judge cancels the equity/stock.
Medley Management Inc. is current in their Financial reporting obligations so it is not likely the SEC will get involved.
Hello, Sir, please, I am wondering if you have known why this ticker was resumed to trade in the market. It will be highly appreciated if you could provide a clue.

So w $2mm add'l ***$3.55? or so "target?"
Dont get me wrong, in no way do i assume these numbers anything more than a rough guess
weren't we expecting ~$2mil 'just' from business winddown? Prior to any liquidating trustee 'extra' actions?
$1.70-$3.50??? $2mil biz completion. $1-$2mil lawyer withhold/clawback? Then today’s settlement low side vs high side.

General Bar Date was 4/30/21 at 5:00 ET
The General Bar Date specifically excludes any claims derived from, or based upon, the 2024 Notes (3) and 2026 Notes (4), or the Notes Indentures (5). Except as otherwise provided herein, the General Bar Date will apply to all claims of any kind that arose, or are deemed to have arisen, prior to March 7, 2021 (the “Petition Date”), the date on which the Debtor commenced its case under chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”), including, but not limited to administrative expense claims under section 503(b)(9) of the Bankruptcy Code and all claims of setoff or recoupment. For the avoidance of doubt, the General Bar Date established by the Bar Date Order supersedes any prior notice of a different bar date or deadline for filing proofs of claim, whether posted on the Court’s docket or otherwise.
