are attached hereto as Exhibit A. These statements contain daily time logs describing the time spent by each attorney and paraprofessional during the Interim Period. To the best of Rutan’s knowledge, this Application complies with sections 330 and 331 of the Bankruptcy Code, the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, this Court’s Local Rules, and the Administrative Order. Rutan’s time reports are either (a) initially handwritten by the attorney or paralegal performing the described services and then entered into Rutan’s

2123/023353-0031 1 14312501 a02/1811 I

-6-

computerized billing program by an administrative assistant or (b) entered directly into Rutan’s computerized billing program by the attorney or paralegal performing the described services. The time reports are then organized on a daily basis. Rutan is sensitive to issues of "lumping" and, unless time was spent in one time frame on a variety of different matters for a particular client, separate time entries are set forth in the time reports. Rutan’s charges for its professional services are based upon the time, nature, extent and value of such services and the cost of comparable services other than in a case under the Bankruptcy Code. Actual and Necessary Expenses 10. A summary of actual and necessary expenses incurred by Rutan for the

Interim Period is attached hereto as part of Exhibit A. 11. Rutan charges $0.10 per page for photocopying expenses related to cases,

such as this one, arising in Delaware. Rutan’s photocopying machines automatically record the number of copies made when the person that is doing the copying enters the client’s account number into a device attached to the photocopier. Rutan summarizes each client’s photocopying charges on a daily basis. 12. Rutan charges $1.00 for the first page and $0.50 for each additional page

of out-going facsimile transmissions. There is no additional charge for long distance telephone calls on faxes. The charge for outgoing facsimile transmissions reflects Rutan’s calculation of the actual costs incurred by Rutan for the machines, supplies, and extra labor expenses associated with sending facsimile transmissions and is reasonable in relation to the amount charged by outside vendors who provide similar services. Rutan does not charge the Debtors for the receipt of faxes in this case.

With respect to providers of on-line legal research services

LEXIS

and WESTLAW), Rutan charges the standard usage rates these providers charge for computerized legal research. Rutan bills its clients the actual amounts charged by such services, with no premium. Any volume discount received by Rutan is passed on to the client. 14. Rutan believes the foregoing rates are the market rates that the majority of

law firms charge clients for such services. In addition, Rutan believes that such charges are in accordance with the American Bar Association’s ("ABA") guidelines, as set forth in the ABA’s Statement of Principles, dated January 12, 1995, regarding billing for disbursements and other charges. Summary of Services Rendered 15. The names of the partners and associates of Rutan who have rendered

professional services in these cases during the Interim Period, and the paralegals and case management assistants of Rutan who provided services to these attorneys during the Interim Period, are set forth in the attached Exhibit A. 16. Rutan, by and through such persons, as special corporate and litigation

counsel, has advised the Debtors on a regular basis with respect to various corporate and litigation matters in connection with the Debtors’ bankruptcy cases, and performed all necessary professional services which are described and narrated in detail below. Rutan’s efforts have been extensive due to the size and complexity of the Debtors’ bankruptcy cases. Summary of Services by Project 17. The services rendered by Rutan during the Interim Period can be grouped

2123/023353-0031 114312501 a02/18/11

into the categories set forth below. Rutan attempted to place the services provided in the category that best relates to such services.

These services performed, by categories, are generally described below, with a more detailed identification of the actual services provided set forth on the attached Exhibit A, which identifies the attorneys and paraprofessionals who rendered services relating to each category, along with the number of hours for each individual and the total compensation sought for each category.
