The Madison Hawk 363-Marketing and Disposition Program Advantage:

Our structured program provides the following significant advantages to the debtor and creditors:

  • Maximize Net Asset Recovery: A 363-Auction Bankruptcy Sale of the asset will maximize net recovery for the debtor and all creditors. The competitive nature of a professionally conducted auction campaign will generate market pricing on a non-contingent basis.
  • Provide Full Lender Protection:  A 363-Auction Bankruptcy Sale provides the ability to market an asset to be sold absolute, regardless of price, subject to the approval of the United States Bankruptcy Court, with the secured creditor having the right, but not the obligation, to credit bid.  The lender has complete protection with respect to its collateral by its right to credit bid its position while also having the ability to sell the asset to a third party and thus converting the collateral into cash.
  • Structured Sale: A professional auction-marketing program would generate non-contingent all-cash offers on an asset within 60 to 75 days.  All due diligence items, which are typically post-contract contingencies in a conventional sale are  provided to potential bidders in advance.  Complete up-front property due diligence will result in a superior return and higher pricing.
  • Accelerated Asset Control: The structured 363-Auction Bankruptcy Sale provides a vehicle to shorten the time frame of a normal foreclosure process. If the creditor recovery analysis supports taking the property into portfolio, this permits the creditor to gain control of the asset, preserve its collateral, and avoid the cost of a lengthy procedure to obtain title.
  • Real Time Market Data: The auction marketing program provides the Estate and creditors with the ability to obtain a real time view of the market value of their asset. For the lender it provides valuable information to assist in the analysis and decision making process of whether maximum net recovery on the asset will be achieved by selling the asset to a third party or instead credit bidding and taking title.
