As previously disclosed, on September 26, 2013, the Motors Liquidation Company GUC Trust (the GUC Trust) entered into a Settlement Agreement (the Settlement Agreement) relating to the settlement of certain claims filed by or on behalf of holders of notes issued in 2003 by General Motors Nova Scotia Finance Company. Pursuant to the terms of the Settlement Agreement, the Effective Date thereunder is conditioned upon, among other things, the receipt of final, non-appealable orders of both the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the U.S. Court) and the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia (the Canadian Court) approving the terms of the Settlement Agreement.
On October 21, 2013, the U.S. Court entered an order approving the terms of the Settlement Agreement, thus commencing a 14-day appeals period in the U.S. which, absent any appeals, will expire on November 4, 2013. With respect to the Canadian Court approval, the GUC Trust understands that the trustee in bankruptcy for General Motors Nova Scotia Finance Company has recently sought a hearing date with the Canadian Court, for the consideration of such matters, of November 12, 2013, which date may be revised without further notice to the GUC Trust. The GUC Trust also understands that, following the entry by the Canadian Court of any order approving the terms of the Settlement Agreement, a 10-day appeals period would commence in Canada, upon the expiration of which, absent any appeals, any such approval order would become final and non-appealable.
As a result of and assuming the foregoing, absent any appeals within the applicable appeals periods, the Effective Date under the Settlement Agreement is likely to be no earlier than Monday, November 25, 2013. Section 12 of the Settlement Agreement requires a special, excess distribution in respect of the units of beneficial interest in the GUC Trust to be made within 30 days of such Effective Date. A copy of the Settlement Agreement has previously been filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Form 8-K filed September 27, 2013.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
