UPDATED: Reagor-Dykes Auto Group requests court to allow sale of company

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Chief Restructuring Officer for Reagor-Dykes filed documents in bankruptcy court asking for approval to start bidding procedures for remaining assets. This would allow KamKad Automotive Holdings as a "Stalking Horse bidder" and allow a competitive bidding process to begin. A filing late Tuesday afternoon asks the court to consider this request at the next hearing already scheduled for Sept. 18. 

A Stalking Horse Bidder or "overbid protections" is an attempt by the debtor to test the market for the debtor's assets in advance of auction. According to court documents, "The procedures intended to enhance competitive bidding" and "ensure the sales price for the assets is the highest value possible." 

The debtors request the court approve the overbid protections, which includes a break-up fee of $750,000. This fee encourages a "white knight" bidder to enter the bidding by providing a form of compensation. 

By September 21, the documents show if the court approves KamKad, it will place into escrow a deposit of $1,000,000.  In a Non-Binding Letter of Intent between Kamkad and Reagor-Dykes, it states the purchase price is $25,321,520, plus assumed liabilities, and existing inventory payoff amount determined by Ford Motor Credit. 

Reagor-Dykes Auto Group asks the court to approve proposed sale transaction and bid procedures. A sale hearing would be on November 28, if approved.
