SUMMARY OF AUCTION & BIDDING PROCEDURES: BID PROCEDURES: The auction will be conducted in accordance with the Bid Procedures approved by the Bankruptcy Court (hereinafter referred to as the "Bid Procedures"). Download the Bid Procedures at www.schraderauction.com or contact the Auction Company for a copy. If any statement in the marketing materials is contrary to or inconsistent with the Bid Procedures, the Bid Procedures shall control.
BIDDING ON TRACTS 1, 2 & 3: With respect to Tracts 1, 2 & 3, bids may be submitted on the individual tracts, any two tracts combined or all three tracts combined. Bidding on the individual tracts and combinations may compete until the end of the auction. The "Highest Bid Completion" for Tracts 1, 2 & 3 refers to one of the following, whichever is higher and better: (a) the highest and best single Qualifying Bid submitted by a Qualifying Bidder on Tracts 1, 2 & 3 combined; or (b) that combination of two or more Qualifying Bids submitted by Qualifying Bidders on Tracts 1, 2 & 3 which results in the highest and best total value. The Sellers have agreed to sell Tracts 1, 2 & 3 to the Qualifying Bidder(s) whose Qualifying Bid(s) comprise the Highest Bid Completion; provided, however: (i) Tracts 1, 2 & 3 are subject to a "stalking horse" bid for $5,000,000, which constitutes the initial Highest Bid Completion; (ii) any other Highest Bid Completion must equal or exceed $5,250,000 (being the stalking horse bid amount plus a $150,000 Break-Up & Reimbursement Amount plus an initial overbid of $100,000), plus Assumed Liabilities; and (iii) the sale of Tracts 1, 2 & 3 will be subject to final approval of the Bankruptcy Court.

BIDDING ON TRACT 4: Tract 4 can only be purchased as a separate tract. It cannot be included as part of a combination bid. Anyone seeking to acquire Tract 4 with other tract(s) must submit a separate bid on Tract 4 with a separate purchase price. The Sellers have agreed to sell Tract 4 to the Qualifying Bidder submitting the highest and best Qualifying Bid on Tract 4; provided, however, the sale of Tract 4 is subject to obtaining any necessary approval(s) of lien creditor(s). (In the Bid Procedures, Tract 4 is referred to as the "Non-Debtor Parcel".)
BIDDING OPTIONS: A bidder may submit one or more bids on one or more individual tract(s) and/or permitted tract combination(s), as follows: (a) single bid for a single tract; (b) single (lump sum) bid for any permitted tract combination; or (c) multiple bids for different tract(s) or sets of tract(s). A bidder submitting multiple bids will be required to specify that such bids are submitted either as alternative bids (only one of which may be accepted) or as independent bids (each of which may be accepted regardless of the acceptance or rejection of any other bid submitted by the same bidder).

EVIDENCE OF TITLE; LIENS: Preliminary title evidence will be available prior to the Bid Deadline. All tracts are to be conveyed free and clear of liens pursuant to Banker. Code section 363(f) (as to Tracts 1, 2 & 3) or by consent of the lien creditor(s) (as to Tract 4).
