Class 5 Any Allowed General Unsecured Claims.

The Debtor has built an auction procedure into the Plan, see Section 12.18 of the Plan. The opening bid of $15,000 was arrived at by the Debtor in consultation with its counsel, considering the assets and liabilities of the company, the likelihood of a sale as a going concern, and the obligations under the Plan.
