Jurisdiction 1. The Court has jurisdiction over this matter pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1334. This

matter is a core proceeding within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. 157(b)(2). 2. 3. Venue is proper pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1408 and 1409. The statutory bases for the relief requested herein are sections 361(1) and 363(b)

of the Bankruptcy Code, 11 U.S.C. 101-1330 (the Bankruptcy Code), and Rule 9019(a) of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure (the Bankruptcy Rules). Background 4. On May 17, 2005 (the Petition Date), the Debtors filed their voluntary petitions

for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. The Debtors are operating their businesses and managing their properties as debtors in possession pursuant to sections 1107(a) and 1108 of the Bankruptcy Code. No trustee or examiner has been appointed in these cases. On the Petition Date, the Court entered an order jointly administering these cases pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 1015(b). 5. On May 24, 2005, the United States trustee appointed an official committee of

unsecured creditors pursuant to section 1102 of the Bankruptcy Code (the Committee). 6. The Debtors and their non-debtor affiliates are leading global suppliers of

automotive components, systems and modules to all of the worlds largest vehicle manufacturers, including DaimlerChrysler AG, Ford Motor Company, General Motors Corporation, Honda Motor Company, Inc., Nissan Motor Company Unlimited, Porsche Cars GB, Renault Crateur DAutomobiles, Toyota SA and Volkswagen AG. 7. Before the Petition Date, the Debtors placed an order with Valiant for a mold for

use in the production of the Hyundai Sonata I/P Armature (the Mold), pursuant to which

2
K&E 11217367.4

Valiant allegedly perfected liens pursuant to the Michigan Mold Lien Act (MCL 445.611 et seq.) (collectively, the Valiant Liens). 8. Valiant manufactured and delivered the Mold to the Debtors before the

Petition Date. The Debtors have not paid Valiant and the amount of $64,780.00 remains due and owing from the Debtors to Valiant for the Mold. Proposed Settlement 9. For some time, the Debtors have been negotiating a comprehensive agreement

with a number of parties (including Valiant) to resolve a number of interrelated issues regarding the potential sale of assets, which would impact issues related to the unpaid amounts for the Mold. During these negotiations, Valiant has refrained from filing a request for adequate

protection or for relief to pursue its alleged state law remedies to allow the Debtors to focus on the comprehensive agreement. 10. Because the comprehensive agreement has taken some time to negotiate and is

still not final and ready for Court approval, Valiant has requested adequate protection payments on account of the decrease in the value of Valiants interest in the Mold. 11. After conducting arms-length negotiations aimed at resolving Valiants request

while the comprehensive agreement is finalized, the Debtors and Valiant have agreed to enter Stipulation. 12. The salient terms of the Stipulation are as follows:1 (a) The Debtors shall pay monthly adequate protection payments in the amount of $2,700 to Valiant (each, a Payment), which will reduce the outstanding principal owed by the Debtors to Valiant for the Mold by the amount of such Payments.

The summary of the Stipulation provided solely for the convenience of the Court and parties in interest. To the extent that there is any discrepancies between this summary and the Stipulation, the terms of the Stipulation shall govern.

3
K&E 11217367.4

(b)

The first Payment shall be paid fifteen days after entry of an order approving the Stipulation and future Payments shall be paid no later than the fifteenth day of the following months. Payments will cease upon the earliest of: (a) the Debtors paying Valiant $64,780.00 in Payments; (b) the Debtors confirming a plan under 11 U.S.C. 1129, which plan addresses the claims of Valiant on account of the Mold; and (c) the Court approving a later stipulation whereby the Debtors and Valiant enter into an agreement in which Valiant receives payments of no less than the amount of $57,280 minus the amount of the Payments previous paid to Valiant in full, final and complete settlement of the claims of Valiant on account of the Mold.2 Relief Requested

(c)

13.

By this Motion, the Debtors respectfully request that the Court approve the

Stipulation pursuant to sections 361(1) and 363(b) of the Bankruptcy Code and Bankruptcy Rule 9019(a). Notably, neither the agents for the Debtors senior, secured

prepetition and postpetition lenders nor the Committee object to the Debtors request. Basis for Relief 14. Bankruptcy Rule 9019(a) provides, in pertinent part, that [o]n motion by the

[debtor in possession] and after notice and a hearing, the court may approve a compromise or settlement. Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9019(a). Section 363(b) allows a trustee or debtor in possession to use property of the estate other than in the ordinary course of business after appropriate notice and hearing. See 11 U.S.C. 363(b)(1). 15. Compromises are tools for expediting the administration of the case and reducing

administrative costs and are favored in bankruptcy. See Protective Comm. of Independent Stockholders of TMT Trailer Ferry, Inc. v. Anderson, 390 U.S. 414, 424 (1968) (In administering reorganization proceedings in an economic and practical matter it will often be

The Debtors and Valiant contemplate that the later stipulation will be the comprehensive agreement referenced above, which is expected to resolve a number of issues, including the amounts owed for the Mold.

wise to arrange the settlement of claims.); Fishell v. Soltow (In re Fishell), No. 92-1109, 1995 WL 66622, at *2 (6th Cir. 1995); In re Haven, Inc., 2005 WL 927666, at *1 (6th Cir. B.A.P. 2005); In re Dow Corning Corp., 192 B.R. 415, 421 (AJS) (Bankr. E.D. Mich. 1996); see also Fogel v. Zell, 221 F.3d 955, 960 (7th Cir. 2000); In re Martin, 91 F.3d 389, 393 (3d Cir. 1996) (To minimize litigation and expedite the administration of a bankruptcy case, [c]ompromises are favored in bankruptcy.) (quoting 9 Collier on Bankruptcy 9019.03[1] (15th Ed. 1993)). Moreover, various courts have endorsed the use of Bankruptcy Rule 9019 to resolve disputes. See, e.g., Bartel v. Bar Harbour Airways, Inc., 196 B.R. 268, 271 (S.D.N.Y. 1996); In re Check Reporting Service, Inc., 137 B.R. 653, 656 (Bankr. W.D. Mich. 1992); In re Miller, 148 B.R. 510, 516 (Bankr. N.D. Ill. 1992); In re Planned Systems, Inc., 82 B.R. 919, 921 (Bankr. S.D. Ohio 1988). 16. Generally, a settlement should be approved if it is determined to be fair and

equitable and does not fall below the lowest level of reasonableness. See Bauer v. Commerce Union Bank, 859 F.2d 438, 441 (6th Cir. 1988); In re Haven, Inc. 2005 WL 927666, at *3 (6th Cir. B.A.P. 2005); Dow Corning, 192 B.R. at 421. In determining whether a compromise satisfies this standard, courts ordinarily consider: (a) the probability of success in the litigation; (b) the difficulties, if any, to be encountered in the matter of collection; (c) the complexity and expense of the litigation involved; and (d) the paramount interest of creditors and proper deference to their reasonable views. See, e.g., In re Bard, 49 Fed. Appx. 528, 530 (6th Cir. 2002); In re Dow Corning Corp., 2003 WL 22218449, at *1 (DPH) (Bankr. E.D. Mich. 2003); In re Dalen, 259 B.R. 586, 611-13 (Bankr. W.D. Mich. 2001); In re Stinson, Inc., 221 B.R. 726, 732 (SWR) (Bankr. E.D. Mich. 1998).

K&E 11217367.4

17.

The Stipulation that is the subject of this Motion satisfies this standard. If the

parties did not agree to the Stipulation, the Debtors and Valiant would become embroiled in litigation over the value of the Mold, the outcome of which is uncertain. Such litigation would require that both parties, at great expense, employ appraisers and other professionals to determine the accurate value of the Mold and any diminution in the value of an interest in such Mold. The expenses incurred in this litigation would be an additional burden to the estates and their creditors and would potentially exceed the entire amount of Valiants outstanding claim on account of the Mold. The Stipulation avoids both the uncertainty of litigation and the heavy expense it would place on the estates and their creditors, which is particularly important in comparison to the small amount at issue. 18. Section 363(b)(1) provides that [t]he trustee, after notice and a hearing, may use,

sell, or lease, other than in the ordinary course of business, property of the estate. 11 U.S.C. 363(b)(1). Courts within the Sixth Circuit have held that transactions should be approved under section 363 when they are supported by sound business judgment. See, e.g., Stephens Indus., Inc. v. McClung, 789 F.2d 386, 390 (6th Cir. 1986) (concluding that a court can authorize a sale of a Debtors assets when a sound business purpose dictates such action.); In re Embrace Sys. Corp., 178 B.R. 112, 124 (Bankr. W.D. Mich. 1995); see also In re North American Royalties, Inc., 276 B.R. 860, 866 (Bankr. E.D. Tenn. 2002). 19. The Stipulation also satisfies this standard for sound business judgment. The

Debtors seek approval of this Stipulation to avoid the cost and uncertainty of litigating the validity Valiants lien and its alleged right to exercise state law remedies. Any litigation would be costly and would distract the Debtors from their goal of achieving a successful reorganization. Consequently, when viewed in the context of benefits received and costs avoided, the decision to

enter into the Stipulation reflects an obvious exercise of sound business judgment by the Debtors. Further, the Debtors submit that the adequate protection amounts under the Stipulation are consistent with the standards in section 361(1) of the Bankruptcy Code. 20. Accordingly, for all of the foregoing reasons, the Debtors submit that the facts

underlying the Stipulation meet the standards of Bankruptcy Rule 9019(a) and section 363(b) of the Bankruptcy Code, and that the Court should, therefore, grant the Motion. Notice 21. Notice of this Motion has been given to Valiant, the Core Group and the 2002 List

as required by the Case Management Procedures.3 In light of the nature of the relief requested, the Debtors submit that no further notice is required. No Prior Request 22. court. No prior motion for the relief requested herein has been made to this or any other
