Pola Supermarket Corp., et al., filed a Plan and a Disclosure Statement.

Because the Plan provides that remaining allowed claims are being paid in full (100 cents on the dollar) with applicable interest, the Debtors are not formally required to solicit actual votes on the Plan, as no classes of claims are unimpaired.

Each holder of an allowed unsecured claim in Class 2 will receive a dividend on the Effective Date from Net Distributable Cash equal to the full amount (100%) of the Allowed Unsecured Claim, together with accrued interest at the federal judgment rate.

The shareholder of the Debtors (Candido DeLeon) in Class 3 will be entitled to all remaining surplus after payment of all Allowed Claims, and shall continue to retain his stock and equity interest in the Debtors.

The Disbursing Agent is already holding the sum of $1,877,941.48 in escrow representing the net sale proceeds. On the Effective Date, the Debtors shall transfer any remaining sums on deposit in their respective DIP accounts (estimated to be approximately $30,000) to complete the pool of available funds for distributions.

A full-text copy of the Disclosure Statement dated April 22, 2020, is available at from at no charge.
