United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit recognized in In re National Gypsum Co.: Prior to 1978, the most able professionals were often unwilling to work for bankruptcy estates where their compensation would be subject to the uncertainties of what a judge thought the work was worth after it had been done. The uncertainty continues under the present 330 of the Bankruptcy Code, which provides that the court award to professional consultants reasonable compensation based on relevant factors of time and comparable costs, etc. Under present 328 the professionals may avoid that uncertainty by obtaining court approval of compensation agreed to with the trustee (or debtor or committee). 123 F.3d 861, 862 (5th Cir. 1997) (citations omitted). 20. Notwithstanding approval of their engagement under section 328 of the

Bankruptcy Code, Haley & Aldrich intends to apply to the Court for allowance of compensation and reimbursement of expenses pursuant to the procedures described in paragraph 12 and otherwise in accordance with the procedures set forth in the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code, the Bankruptcy Rules, the Local Rules and any applicable orders of the Court. 21.

K&E 11223749.2

2.

This affidavit is being submitted: (a) in support of the application for an order

authorizing the employment and retention of Haley & Aldrich as an environmental consultant to the above-captioned debtors (collectively, the Debtors); and (b) in accordance with sections 327 and 328 of title 11 of the United States Code, 11 U.S.C. 101-1330 (the Bankruptcy Code) and Rules 2014, 2016, and 5002 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure (the Bankruptcy Rules). 3. Haley & Aldrich provides client companies with comprehensive environmental

consultation services. 4. The Debtors have requested that Haley & Aldrich continues to provide engineering,

consulting and permitting services related to addressing the Debtors environmental liabilities. The majority of this work is being performed in response to court orders, existing permits and/or mandates by various regulatory agencies, some of which include stipulated penalties for not meeting prescribed deadlines. These serviced are currently being provided to the Debtors and Haley & Aldrich has consented to provide such services. 5. Haley & Aldrich may have performed services in the past, may currently perform

services, and may perform services in the future, in matters unrelated to the Debtors chapter 11 cases for persons that are parties in interest in the Debtors chapter 11 cases. Haley & Aldrich does not perform services for any such person in connection with the chapter 11 cases or have any relationship with any such person, their attorneys or accountants that would be adverse to the Debtors or their estates. 6. As part of its customary practice, Haley & Aldrich is retained in cases, proceedings

and transactions involving many different parties, some of whom may represent or be employed by the Debtors, claimants and parties in interest in the chapter 11 cases. 7. The Debtors have numerous creditors, stakeholders and other parties with whom they

maintain business relationships. In connection with its proposed retention by the Debtors in these 2
K&E 11223749.2

cases, Haley & Aldrich undertook to determine whether it had any conflicts or other relationships that might cause it not to be disinterested or to hold or represent an interest adverse to the Debtors. In connection with this inquiry, Haley & Aldrich obtained from counsel to the Debtors the names of individuals and entities that may be significant parties-in-interest in these cases (the Potential Parties-in-Interest), and such parties are listed in Schedule A attached hereto. Haley & Aldrich has researched its client files and records to determine its connections with the Debtors and any Potential Parties-in-Interest. 8. To the best of my knowledge and belief, insofar as I have been able to ascertain, none

of the employees of Haley & Aldrich working on engagements on the Debtors behalf has had, or will have in the future, direct contact concerning these cases with the Debtors creditors, equity holders, other parties-in-interest, the U.S. Trustee, or anyone employed in the Office of the United States Trustee, other than in connection with performing environmental consulting services on behalf of the Debtors. 9. To the best of my knowledge, Haley & Aldrich has not been retained to assist any

entity or person other than the Debtors on matters relating to, or in connection with, these cases. To the extent that I have been able to ascertain whether Haley & Aldrich has been retained to represent any of the Potential Parties-in-Interest in matters unrelated to these cases, such parties are listed in Schedule B hereto. Other than as listed in Schedule B, I am unaware of any relationships that Haley & Aldrich has had with Potential Parties-in-Interest, or their respective attorneys and accountants. 10. Neither I nor any officer or employee of, or professional employed by, Haley &

Aldrich has agreed to share or will share any portion of the compensation to be received from the Debtors with any other person other than the principal and regular employees of Haley & Aldrich. 11. Haley & Aldrich is conducting further inquiries regarding its retention by any

creditors of the Debtors, and upon conclusion of that inquiry, or at any time during the period of its 3
K&E 11223749.2

employment, if Haley & Aldrich should discover any facts bearing on the matters described herein, Haley & Aldrich will promptly file a supplemental disclosure with this Court. 12. Based upon the foregoing, I believe Haley & Aldrich is a disinterested person within

the meaning of section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code and does not hold or represent an interest adverse to the Debtors or their estates. 13. Haley & Aldrich agrees to provide assistance to the Debtors in accordance with the

terms and conditions set forth in the Application and the Engagement Letters, which are annexed to the Application as Exhibit B. Accordingly, I make this Affidavit in support of an order authorizing such retention. 14. As set forth in the Engagement Letters, the Debtors propose to provide payment for

the services described in the Engagement Letters in Exhibit B of the Application and for additional environmental services authorized by the Debtors through Engagement Letters which may be executed in the future, the payment of which is subject to limitations contained in the United States Bankruptcy Code, 11 U.S.C. 101, et seq. 15. It is the intention of Haley & Aldrich to seek compensation for its services as

described in the Application and Engagement Letters in accordance with the Bankruptcy Code, the Bankruptcy Rules, the U.S. Trustees Guidelines and any and all applicable orders or rules of this Court. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1746, I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct.
