WHOLE LOAN PORTFOLIO SALE PROCESS
 
3.
 
As detailed in my previous declaration, the Debtors, with theassistance of Centerview, ran a prepetition marketing process for the Purchased Assets
that resulted in three bids for various assets of the Debtors. Of these three proposals, one
bidder elected not to bid on the Whole Loan Portfolio, Nationstar bid $1.4 billion on theWhole Loan Portfolio in conjunction with its bid for the Servicing Platform, and thethird bidder offered significantly below $1.4 billion. In addition, Nationstar proposedincreasing its bid on the Whole Loan Portfolio to $1.6 billion if AFI provided “stretch”financing on terms that were not available in the public debt capital markets. AFI
declined to provide such financing.
4.
 
After Nationstar was selected as the exclusive bidder for both theServicing Assets and the Whole Loan Portfolio (and with Nationstar’s consent), theDebtors and AFI discussed the possibility of AFI bidding for the Whole Loan Portfolioand becoming the stalking horse bidder for these assets. After a lengthy period of negotiation, AFI eventually agreed to purchase the Whole Loan Assets for $200 millionmore than any other bidder (if consummated through a Chapter 11 plan) and serve as astalking horse without a breakup fee or expense reimbursement. During the negotiationwith AFI, the Debtors and Centerview insisted that that the Debtors preserve the right tosell the Whole Loan Portfolio for $1.4 billion pursuant to a 363 process if a Chapter 11plan was not able to be consummated. The Debtors’ negotiated with AFI on an arm’slength basis that resulted in a more favorable APA then was achievable with any other
bidder in the process.
 5.
 
The Debtors’ decision to execute the AFI APA has threesignificant benefits to the estate: (i) the AFI Purchased Assets are de-linked from the
