Subordination Agreement Standstill Provision

In this case, Grice Engineering acquired the assets of Innovations Engineering, Inc. under an asset purchase agreement. The total purchase price was $3.15 million. In the end, Grice Engineering paid $500,000. The fifth third bank financed the final payment of $500,000 on the basis of a credit and security contract. The remainder of the purchase price, $2.65 million, was in the form of a ticket to be paid by Grice Engineering, to be paid for the innovation. The change in sola required 12 quarterly payments and a final payment of $2,065,770. The $500,000 note was secured by a pledge on all of Grice Engineering`s assets. The change of sola was also guaranteed by share pledge contracts. In accordance with the terms of the debt, the Asset Purchase Agreement and the General Agreement on Corporate Security, Innovations has entered into a subordination agreement that subordinates the payment to the bank of Grice Engineering`s debt to Grice Engineering`s entire debt.

As a result, the bank was in the top pawn position and the innovation was in second place for assets acquired by Grice Engineering under the Asset Purchase Agreement. Scrupulously relates to the actual terms of the contract and verifies the relative fairness of the commitments made (see Hutcherson v. Sears Roebuck – Co., 342 Iii.App.3d 109 (ILL). Illinois courts are more reluctant to conclude that contracts negotiated between commercial enterprises are unacceptably replaceable than if the contract were between a consumer and a company (see Walter E. Heller – Co. v. Convalescent Home of the First Church of Deliverance, 49 Ill.App.3d 213 (Ill. App). Court 1977). In determining whether there was an objectively unacceptable breach, the Tribunal examined the characteristics of the subordination agreements between creditors. The subordination agreement between Innovation and the Bank allowed Innovation to obtain capital and interest payments below its rating as long as Grice Engineering was not in late payment with the bank. Some subordination agreements provide that the subordinated creditor does not accept the payment of its debts until the priority loan has been fully paid (see z.B.

Sumitomo Trust – Banking, 140 B.R. 643, 668 (Bankr). W.D. Me. In the world of second-wagering and carry-back financing, it is not uncommon for lenders to enter into subordination agreements in which the second pledge cedes its right to pledge and the right to recover payments or money to the former. Status quo clauses in subordination agreements are less common, but they are also not rare in subordination agreements. A payment freeze is a period during which the subordinate lender accepts that it cannot accept or withhold the borrower`s payments for subordinated debt. The length and triggers for the start of a suspension of payment are usually indicated in the subordination agreement.
