Fifth Distribution of Liquidating Trust Assets to Certain Liquidating Trust Beneficiaries

Pursuant to and in accordance with the Joint Plan of Advanta Corp., et al., under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (as supplemented, modified, or amended, the "Plan"), the Trustee1 of the AC Liquidating Trust and Advanta Liquidating Trust (collectively, the “Trusts”) has made a Fifth Distribution of certain Liquidating Trust Assets to Liquidating Trust Beneficiaries (the “Fifth Distribution”).

The Fifth Distribution represents the following recoveries:

  • Subordinated Note Claims (“SubNote Claims”) against the Trusts received 28.5 cents on the dollar
  • General Unsecured Claims (“GUCs”) against the Trusts recovered 11.6 cents on the dollar
  • No further distributions are made to Investment Notes Claims and RediReserve Certificate Claims (collectively, “Retail Note Claims”) as these holders have received full distributions.

The initial Distribution, second Distribution, third Distribution, fourth Distribution, and fifth Distribution altogether represent the following cumulative recoveries:

  • SubNote Claims against the Trusts received 28.5 cents on the dollar; and
  • General Unsecured Claims against the Trusts received 70.9 cents on the dollar

The Fifth Distribution is being made in accordance with the terms of the Plan and reflects total cash available for distribution after accounting for appropriate and necessary reserves. Such reserves account for, among other things, outstanding issues and prospective Trust expenses to wind down the remaining estates. While the Trustee does not anticipate material additional distributions, the Trustee may make additional distributions to certain Liquidating Trust Beneficiaries in accordance with the terms of the Plan to the extent funds remain after, among other things, the resolution of such outstanding issues and the completion of the wind-down of the remaining estates.

The Trustee and its professionals are continuing to work in close consultation with the Trust Advisory Board on all remaining matters that require resolution to wind down the remaining estates. The Trustee will announce further updates, if any, on the website as it deems necessary.
