Cushman & Wakefield is providing this notice whereby Southlake 1st Co., Ltd., a Korean company (“Mezzanine Lender” or “Seller”) will offer for sale at public auction 100% of the limited liability company interests (the “Membership Interests”) in Southlake Indiana LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Pledged Entity”), together with certain rights and property representing, relating to, or arising from the Membership Interests (collectively, the “Collateral”).  

Based upon information provided by Southlake Indiana Mezz, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Debtor”) and its affiliates, it is the understanding of Secured Party (but without any recourse to, or representation or warranty of any kind by Secured Party as to the accuracy or completeness) that: (i) the Membership Interests constitute the principal asset of Debtor; (ii) the Membership Interests and other Collateral secure payment of a mezzanine loan in the original amount of $50 million made by Secured Party to Debtor (the “Mezzanine Loan”), for which events of default have occurred, are continuing and all indebtedness due thereunder has been accelerated by Secured Party; (iii) the Pledged Entity owns the Southlake Mall, which is a retail shopping center located at 2109 Southlake Mall, Merillvill, Indiana 46410 (the “Property”); and (iv) the Pledged Entity is the borrower under a loan in the original principal amount of $95 million (the “Mortgage Loan”) that is secured by a mortgage on the Property.  The Mortgage Loan is currently in default and has a scheduled maturity date of March 9, 2021.

The Collateral will be sold as a single unit and is offered AS IS, WHERE IS, WITH ALL FAULTS.  Secured Party makes no guarantee, representation or warranty, express or implied, as to any matter, including as to any matter pertaining to the Collateral, and the sale of the Collateral will be made without recourse to, and without representation or warranty by, Secured Party.  The Collateral includes unregistered securities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Secured Party reserves the right to restrict participation in the Sale to prospective bidders that represent that the Collateral will not be sold, assigned, pledged, disposed of, hypothecated or otherwise transferred without the prior registration in accordance with the Securities Act and the securities laws of all other applicable jurisdictions, unless an exemption from such registration is available.

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that there are specific requirements for any potential bidder in connection with obtaining information, bidding on the Collateral and purchasing the Collateral (collectively, the “Requirements”), including without limitation: (1) complying with the requirements applicable to the sale of the Collateral as set forth in Section 6 of the Intercreditor Agreement dated as of March 12, 2018 (as amended, modified, restated or supplemented from time to time, the “ICA”), including, but not limited to, that such bidder must be a “Qualified Transferee” and deliver, or cause to be delivered, to the “Agent” for the “Senior Lender” all agreements and documentation as required under the ICA in connection with providing a “Replacement Third Party Obligor” (as such terms are defined in the ICA); (2) complying with the Pledged Entity’s governing documents and the documents governing the Mezzanine Loan and the Mortgage Loan; and (3) complying with the other qualifications and requirements (including but not limited to the Terms of Sale relating to the sale of the Collateral (the “Terms of Sale”)).

An online datasite for the Sale is available via this webpage (the “Datasite”), which will include certain information that Secured Party possesses concerning the Pledged Entity, the ICA, the Mezzanine Loan, the Mortgage Loan, the Pledged Entity, and the Property (collectively, the “Disclosed Materials”), as well as the Terms of Sale.  Access to such information will be conditioned, at a minimum, upon execution of a confidentiality agreement that can be found on the Datasite.  To participate in the auction, prospective bidders must confirm their ability to satisfy the Requirements in the manner described in the Terms of Sale, and following such confirmation, such qualified participants will be provided a URL and password enabling access to the video conference for the Sale.  No information provided, whether in the Datasite or otherwise, shall constitute a representation or warranty of any kind with respect to such information, the Collateral or the Sale. Participants are encouraged to review all Disclosed Materials and perform such due diligence as they deem necessary in advance of the Sale.

Secured Party reserves the right to credit bid, make a cash bid in excess of any credit bid, set a minimum reserve price, reject all bids and terminate or adjourn the sale to another time, without further notice.  All bids (other than credit bids of Secured Party) must be for cash with no financing conditions and the successful bidder must deliver immediately available good funds (1) for the Required Deposit (as defined in the Terms of Sale) on the date of the Sale, and (2) for the balance of the purchase price for the Collateral on the closing date prescribed by the Terms of Sale.  The winning bidder must pay all transfer taxes, stamp duties and similar taxes incurred in connection with the purchase of the Collateral.
