Sales of Our Assets
The Plan of Dissolution contemplates the sale of all of our remaining non-cash assets. The Plan of Dissolution does not specify the manner in which we may sell our assets. Such sales could take the form of individual sales of assets, sales of groups of assets organized by type of asset or otherwise, a single sale of all or substantially all of our assets, or some other form of sale. Sales of our assets will be made on such terms as are approved by the Board of Directors in its sole discretion. The assets may be sold to one or more purchasers in one or more transactions over a period of time.
It is not anticipated that any further stockholder votes will be solicited with respect to the approval of the specific terms of any particular sales of assets approved by the Board of Directors. We do not anticipate amending or supplementing this proxy statement to reflect any such agreement or sale, unless required by applicable law. The prices at which we will be able to sell our various assets depend largely on factors beyond our control, including, without limitation, the condition of financial markets, the availability of financing to prospective purchasers of the assets, United States and foreign regulatory approvals, public market perceptions, and limitations on transferability of certain assets. In addition, we may not obtain as high a price for a particular asset as we might secure if we were not in liquidation.
