the term sheet attached hereto as Exhibit B (the Settlement Agreement),2 and authorizing the Debtors to take all actions contemplated thereunder. In support of the Motion, the Debtors respectfully state as follows: Jurisdiction 1. The Court has jurisdiction over this matter pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1334. This matter

is a core proceeding within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. 157(b)(2). 2. 3. Venue is proper pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1408 and 1409. The statutory bases for the relief requested herein are sections 363(b) and 365 of the

Bankruptcy Code, 11 U.S.C. 101-1330 (the Bankruptcy Code) and Rule 9019 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure (the Bankruptcy Rules). Background 4. On May 17, 2005 (the Petition Date), the Debtors filed their voluntary petitions for

relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. The Debtors are operating their businesses and managing their properties as debtors in possession pursuant to sections 1107(a) and 1108 of the Bankruptcy Code. On the Petition Date, the Court entered an order jointly administering these cases pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 1015(b). 5. On May 24, 2005, the United States trustee appointed an official committee of

unsecured creditors pursuant to section 1102 of the Bankruptcy Code (the Committee). 6. On January 11, 2007, the Court approved on a final basis that certain Customer

Agreement (the Customer Agreement) by and between the Debtors, the agents for the Debtors senior, secured prepetition and postpetition lenders (the Agents) and certain of the Debtors major

customers [Docket No. 3890]. The Customer Agreement, among other things, provides for a framework to facilitate the orderly sale of a majority of the Debtors businesses with the support of the Agents and the Debtors major customers. 7. On January 24, 2007, the Debtors filed the First Amended Joint Plan of Collins &

Aikman Corporation and Its Debtor Subsidiaries [Docket No. 3976] (the Plan). On January 26, 2007, the Court entered an order approving the Debtors amended disclosure statement related to the Plan [Docket No. 3988]. Pursuant to this order, the Debtors commenced the solicitation process in connection with the Plan. The Plan is supported by the unofficial steering committee for the Debtors senior, secured prepetition lenders, the Committee and the Debtors customers. The Court has scheduled a hearing on confirmation of the Plan for June 5, 2007. The Master Lease 8. The Tenant entered into an Amended and Restated Lease Agreement of

nonresidential real property (the Master Lease) with Landlord on June 27, 2002. 9. The Master Lease relates to six demised premises of nonresidential real property

located in six different locales associated with the Debtors facilities in (a)(i) Manchester, Michigan and (ii) Farmville, North Carolina (the Fabrics Properties), and (b)(i) Albemarle, North Carolina, (ii) Holmesville, Ohio, (iii) Old Fort, North Carolina and (iv) Springfield, Tennessee (collectively, the Carpet & Acoustics Properties, and together with the Fabrics Properties, the Master Lease Properties). 10. The Debtors have ceased operations and closed the facilities associated with the

Fabrics Properties in connection with the wind-down of the Debtors Fabrics business segment approved by this Courts Order Authorizing the Wind-Down of the Debtors Fabrics Business and Certain Related Actions dated June 1, 2006 [Docket No. 2785]. The Debtors facilities associated

3
K&E 11814071.9

with the Carpet & Acoustics Properties continue to operate as part of the Debtors Carpet & Acoustics business segment. 11. On June 14, 2006, in conjunction with the wind-down of the facilities at the

Fabrics Properties, the Debtors filed their Motion for Entry of an Order Authorizing Debtors to Reject Certain Unexpired Leases [Docket No. 2838] (the Motion to Sever & Reject), seeking to sever the Master Lease and reject the agreement(s) to lease the Fabrics Properties. On

August 22, 2006, the Landlord filed its Amended Objection and Memorandum of Law in Opposition to the Motion to Sever & Reject [Docket No. 3180]. At the request of the parties, the Court has adjourned the hearing on the Motion to Sever & Reject. On April 19, 2007, the Court set a hearing date of May 24, 2007. The Settlement Agreement, if approved, would, among other things, settle this contested matter between the Debtors and the Landlord. Disputed Tax Obligations 12. On February 9, 2006, the Landlord filed its Motion to Compel Payment of Unpaid

Taxes Due Post-Petition Under a Non-Residential Real Property Lease [Docket No. 2162] (the Landlord Tax Motion), seeking to compel the Tenant to pay certain property tax obligations relating to the Master Lease Properties that accrued before, but became due after, the Petition Date (the Disputed Tax Obligations). On March 3, 2006, the Debtors filed their Objection to the Landlord Tax Motion [Docket No. 2293] and the Committee filed a joinder to the Debtors Objection [Docket No. 2295]. 13. After a hearing on the matter, on April 27, 2006, the Court granted the

Landlord Tax Motion and ordered that the Debtors pay the Disputed Tax Obligations [Docket No. 2662] (the Tax Order). In accordance with the Tax Order, the Debtors paid the Disputed Tax Obligations.

14.

On April 28, 2006, the Debtors filed a notice of appeal seeking reversal of the

Tax Order (the Appeal) in the Bankruptcy Court and the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan (the District Court). See Case No. 2:06-cv-12013 (E.D. Mich.). After full briefing of the Appeal, because the parties continued to seek an out-of-court resolution to the dispute, the Debtors filed a Notice of Withholding Issuing Ruling or Judgment and the District Court has not ruled on the Appeal. 15. In the interest of resolving the Appeal as part of the Settlement Agreement, the

Debtors have agreed to withdraw the Appeal, but only if the order approving the Settlement Agreement provides that the Tax Order shall not have any precedential effect. To preserve the Debtors arguments min the Appeal, the order approving the Settlement Agreement must provide that the Tax Order is limited to its facts. The Debtors would not agree to withdraw the Appeal if the Tax Order were considered law of the case in these chapter 11 cases or could otherwise be used to estop the Debtors from pursuing the arguments raised in their objection to the Landlord Tax Motion and subsequent Appeal. The Complaint 16. On May 11, 2007, the Debtors filed an adversary proceeding against

W.P. Carey & Co., L.L.C. seeking, among other things, to avoid a transfer of $298,501.32 as a preferential transfer subject to avoidance under section 547 of the Bankruptcy Code or a fraudulent transfer subject to avoidance under section 548 of the Bankruptcy Code (the Avoidance Action). The Carpet & Acoustics Sale 17. On April 20, 2007, the Debtors filed their Motion for the Entry of Orders Approving

Bidding Procedures, Sale of Substantially All of the Assets of the Debtors Carpet & Acoustics Business Free and Clear of Liens, Claims, Encumbrances and Interests and Related Relief [Docket No. 4538] (the Carpet & Acoustics Sale Motion), seeking (a) the sale, subject to higher 5
K&E 11814071.9

and better offers, of substantially all of the assets of the Debtors Carpet & Acoustics business segment (including the Carpet & Acoustic Properties) to International Automotive Components Group North America, Inc. (the Buyer) pursuant to a certain asset purchase agreement (the Carpet & Acoustics Sale Agreement) and (b) certain bidding procedures, attached as Exhibit D to the Carpet & Acoustics Sale Motion (the Bidding Procedures). 18. By Order dated May 1, 2007 [Docket No. 4594], the Court (a) approved the

Bidding Procedures, (b) scheduled an auction to be conducted by the Debtors on May 29, 2007, in the event a Qualified Bid (as defined in the Bidding Procedures) is received and (c) set a hearing on approval of the Carpet & Acoustics sale for June 5, 2007. 19. Pursuant to Article X.A. of the Plan, confirmation and effectiveness of the Plan is

conditioned upon, among other things, the Debtors having consummated the sale of the Debtors Carpet & Acoustics business segment. The Settlement Agreement 20. After significant negotiation, the Debtors and the Landlord have agreed to the

Settlement Agreement which, among other things: (a) provides for the modification of the Master Lease such that it applies only to the Carpet & Acoustics Properties (as modified, the Carpet & Acoustics Lease), followed by the assumption and assignment of the Carpet & Acoustics Lease in connection with the Carpet & Acoustics sale; (b) settles outstanding obligations owed by the Tenant to the Landlord under the leases associated with the Fabrics Properties and provides for the purchase of the Fabrics Properties by the Debtors; and (c) otherwise resolves outstanding disputes between the Tenant and the Landlord, including the Motion to Sever & Reject and the Appeal.

to enter into the Settlement Agreement, on the terms set forth on the term sheet attached hereto as Exhibit B; (b) authorizing the Debtors to take all actions contemplated thereunder, including assumption and assignment of the Carpet & Acoustics Lease and purchasing the Fabrics Properties from the Landlord; (c) providing that the Tax Order shall be limited to the facts and circumstances of

8
K&E 11814071.9

the contested matter arising out of the Landlord Tax Motion; (d) requesting that the Court stay all of the deadlines for the Avoidance Action beginning with the deadline for the defendant to answer or otherwise respond to such action until 30 days after the parties know that the Conditions Precedent cannot be met or will not be waived; and (e) requiring the delivery or remittance to the Landlord of the existing letter of credit posted by the Tenant pursuant to paragraph 34 of the Master Lease (the Existing Letter of Credit), or the proceeds thereof. 23. The agent to the Debtors prepetition senior, secured lenders supports the relief

requested in this Motion. Basis for Relief I. Approval of the Settlement Agreement and Purchase of the Fabrics Properties Is Appropriate Under Bankruptcy Rule 9019 and Section 363(b) of the Bankruptcy Code 24. Bankruptcy Rule 9019(a) provides, in pertinent part, that [o]n motion by the [debtor

in possession] and after notice and a hearing, the court may approve a compromise or settlement. Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9019(a). 25. Compromises are tools for expediting the administration of the case and reducing

administrative costs and are favored in bankruptcy. See Protective Comm. of Independent Stockholders of TMT Trailer Ferry, Inc. v. Anderson, 390 U.S. 414, 424 (1968) (In administering reorganization proceedings in an economic and practical matter it will often be wise to arrange the settlement of claims.); In re Fishell, 1995 WL 66622, at *2 (6th Cir. 1995); In re Haven, Inc., 2005 WL 927666, at *1 (6th Cir. B.A.P. 2005); In re Dow Corning Corp., 192 B.R. 415, 421 (AJS) (Bankr. E.D. Mich. 1996); see also Fogel v. Zell, 221 F.3d 955, 960 (7th Cir. 2000); In re Martin, 91 F.3d 389, 393 (3d Cir. 1996) (To minimize litigation and expedite the administration of a bankruptcy case, [c]ompromises are favored in bankruptcy.) (quoting 9 Collier on Bankruptcy 9019.03[1] (15th Ed. 1993)). Moreover, various courts have endorsed the use of 9
K&E 11814071.9

Bankruptcy Rule 9019 to resolve disputes. See, e.g., Bartel v. Bar Harbour Airways, Inc., 196 B.R. 268, 271 (S.D.N.Y. 1996); In re Check Reporting Service, Inc., 137 B.R. 653, 656 (Bankr. W.D. Mich. 1992); In re Miller, 148 B.R. 510, 516 (Bankr. N.D. Ill. 1992); In re Planned Systems, Inc., 82 B.R. 919, 921 (Bankr. S.D. Ohio 1988). 26. Generally, a settlement should be approved if it is determined to be fair and equitable

and does not fall below the lowest level of reasonableness. See Bauer v. Commerce Union Bank, 859 F.2d 438, 441 (6th Cir. 1988); In re Haven, Inc. 2005 WL 927666, at *3 (6th Cir. B.A.P. 2005); Dow Corning, 192 B.R. at 421. In determining whether a compromise satisfies this standard, courts ordinarily consider: (a) the probability of success in the litigation; (b) the difficulties, if any, to be encountered in the matter of collection; (c) the complexity and expense of the litigation involved; and (d) the paramount interest of creditors and proper deference to their reasonable views. See, e.g., In re Bard, 49 Fed. Appx. 528, 530 (6th Cir. 2002); In re Dow Corning Corp., 2003 WL 22218449, at *1 (DPH) (Bankr. E.D. Mich. 2003); In re Dalen, 259 B.R. 586, 611-13 (Bankr. W.D. Mich. 2001); In re Stinson, Inc., 221 B.R. 726, 732 (SWR) (Bankr. E.D. Mich. 1998). 27. Section 363(b) allows a trustee or debtor in possession to use property of the estate

other than in the ordinary course of business after appropriate notice and hearing. See 11 U.S.C. 363(b)(1). Section 363(b)(1) provides that [t]he trustee, after notice and a hearing, may use, sell, or lease, other than in the ordinary course of business, property of the estate. 11 U.S.C. 363(b)(1). Courts within the Sixth Circuit have held that transactions should be approved under section 363 when they are supported by sound business judgment. See, e.g., Stephens Indus., Inc. v. McClung, 789 F.2d 386, 390 (6th Cir. 1986) (concluding that a court can authorize a sale of a Debtors assets when a sound business purpose dictates such action); In re

10
K&E 11814071.9

Embrace Sys. Corp., 178 B.R. 112, 124 (Bankr. W.D. Mich. 1995); see also In re North American Royalties, Inc., 276 B.R. 860, 866 (Bankr. E.D. Tenn. 2002). 28. The Settlement Agreement (a) is fair and equitable and does not fall below the lowest

level of reasonableness and (b) the Debtors decision to enter into the Settlement Agreement, including the purchase of the Fabrics Properties, is clearly an exercise of their sound business judgment. First and foremost, the Settlement Agreement is integral to the Carpet & Acoustics sale, and the expected proceeds of that sale represent the most valuable asset in the Debtors estates. Additionally, the consummation of the Carpet & Acoustics sale is a condition precedent to confirmation of the Plan. 29. Second, the Settlement Agreement resolves a number of issues between the Debtors

and the Landlord, including: (a) the Appeal currently pending before the District Court; (b) the Motion to Sever & Reject currently pending in this Court; (c) the cure costs related to the prospective assumption of the Master Lease or Carpet & Acoustics Lease; and (d) the unsecured claims of the Landlord in these cases. If left unresolved, resolution of these issues would undoubtedly result in continued costly and time-consuming litigation. The expenses incurred to resolve such disputes would be an additional burden to the estates and their creditors. 30. Third, permitting the Debtors to purchase the Fabrics Properties will allow them to

minimize their damages under the Master Lease. Were the Court were to find against the Debtors on their Motion to Sever & Reject, given the critical nature of the Master Lease to the Carpet & Acoustics sale, the Debtors likely would be required to assume the Master Lease as a whole, incurring an obligation to pay rent and certain carrying costs for the Fabrics Properties through the termination of the Master Lease in 2021. These expenses exceed the Sale Price. Moreover, by purchasing the Fabrics Properties as set forth in the Settlement Agreement, the Debtors will be able

11
K&E 11814071.9

to sell such properties (which is likely to gain more value than if the Debtors attempted to sublease their rights under the Master Lease) to realize a gain on the prospective sale of the Fabrics Properties. 31. Finally, the Settlement Agreement provides that the proceeds of the Existing Letter of

Credit will be used to pay for a portion of the Sale Price of the Fabrics Properties, which benefits the Debtors by allowing them to realize some value from the Existing Letter of Credit, which would otherwise be tied up in payment of rent for unused property. This maximizes the value of the Existing Letter of Credit to the Debtors. 32. As part of the Settlement Agreement, the Debtors agreed to waive and release certain

claims and causes of action, including the ones brought in the Avoidance Action if the Conditions Precedent are met (or waived). Given that the Debtors believe that this is the most likely result, the Debtors believe that it would be a waste of resources for the parties to engage in the litigation involved with the Avoidance Action until it is clear that such litigation is necessary. The Debtors would prefer to withdraw the action without prejudice and re-file if pursuing such causes of action became appropriate at a later date, but this course of action is not possible given the 2-year statute of limitations for the Avoidance Action. Consequently, the Debtors believe that it is reasonable for the Court to stay all of the deadlines for the Avoidance Action beginning with the deadline for the defendant to answer or otherwise respond to such action until 30 days after the parties know that the Conditions Precedent cannot be met or will not be waived. 33. Accordingly, the Debtors respectfully assert that their decision to enter into the

Settlement Agreement is in the best interest of the Debtors estates and constitutes a sound exercise of their business judgment.

12
K&E 11814071.9

II.

Assumption and Assignment of the Carpet & Acoustics Lease Is Authorized Under Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code 34. Section 365(a), (b) of the Bankruptcy Code authorizes a debtor in possession to

assume, subject to the courts approval, executory contracts or unexpired leases of the debtor. See 11 U.S.C. 365(a), (b). Under section 365(a), a debtor, subject to the courts approval, may assume or reject any executory contract or unexpired lease of the debtor. 11 U.S.C. 365(a). Section 365(b)(1), in turn, codifies the requirements for assuming an unexpired lease or executory contract of a debtor, providing that: (b) (1) If there has been a default in an executory contract or unexpired lease of the debtor, the trustee may not assume such contract or lease unless, at the time of assumption of such contract or lease, the trustee (A) cures, or provides adequate assurance that the trustee will promptly cure, such default other than a default that is a breach of a provision relating to the satisfaction of any provision (other than a penalty rate or penalty provision) relating to a default arising from any failure to perform nonmonetary obligations under an unexpired lease of real property, if it is impossible for the trustee to cure such default by performing nonmonetary acts at and after the time of assumption, except that if such default arises from a failure to operate in accordance with a nonresidential real property lease, then such default shall be cured by performance at and after the time of assumption in accordance with such lease, and pecuniary losses resulting from such default shall be compensated in accordance with the provisions of this paragraph; (B) compensates, or provides adequate assurance that the trustee will promptly compensate, a party other than the debtor to such contract or lease, for any actual pecuniary loss to such party resulting from such default; and (C) provides adequate assurance of future performance under such contract or lease. 11 U.S.C. 365(b)(l). 35. The standard applied to determine whether assumption (or rejection) of an executory

contract or unexpired lease should be authorized is the business judgment standard. See Matter of 13
K&E 11814071.9

McLouth Steel Corp., 20 B.R. 688, 692 (Bankr. E.D. Mich. 1982); see also NLRB v. Bildisco & Bildisco, 465 U.S. 513, 524 (1984); In re Orion Pictures Corp., 4 F.3d 1095, 1098-99 (2d Cir. 1993). 36. Upon finding that the Debtors have exercised their sound business judgment in

determining that assumption is in the best interests of the Debtors, their creditors and parties in interest, the Court should approve the assumption under section 365. See, e.g., In re Sharon Steel Corp., 872 F.2d 36, 39-40 (3d Cir. 1989); In re Bradlees Stores, Inc., 194 B.R. 555, 558 n.1 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. 1996); In re Johns-Manville Corp., 60 B.R. 612, 615-16 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. 1986) ([T]he Code favors the continued operation of a business by a debtor and a presumption of reasonableness attaches to a debtors management decisions.); In re Summit Land Co., 13 B.R. 310, 315 (Bankr. D. Utah 1981) (holding that absent extraordinary circumstances, court approval of a debtors decision to assume or reject an executory contract should be granted as a matter of course); Smith v. Van Gorkom, 488 A.2d 858, 872 (Del. 1985) ([t]he business judgment rule is a presumption that in making a business decision the directors of a corporation acted on an informed basis, in good faith and in the honest belief that the action taken was in the best interests of the company.). 37. In the present case, the Debtors assumption and assignment of the Carpet &

Acoustics Lease to the Buyer meets the business judgment standard and satisfies the requirements of section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code. As discussed above, the Carpet & Acoustics sale will provide significant benefits to the Debtors estates. Because the Debtors cannot obtain the benefits of the Carpet & Acoustics sale without the assumption of the Carpet & Acoustics Lease, the assumption (and assignment) of these Carpet & Acoustics Lease is undoubtedly a sound exercise of the Debtors business judgment. 38. Further, a debtor in possession may assign an executory contract or an unexpired

lease of the debtor if it assumes the agreement in accordance with section 365(a), and provides

K&E 11814071.9

adequate assurance of future performance by the assignee, whether or not there has been a default under the agreement. See 11 U.S.C. 365(f)(2). Courts in the Sixth Circuit have held that adequate assurance under section 365 does not require an absolute guarantee of performance. See, e.g., Allied Technology, Inc. v. R.B. Brunemann & Sons, Inc., 25 B.R. 484, 498 (Bankr. S.D. Ohio 1982); Hennen v. Dayton Power and Light Co., 17 B.R. 720, 725 (Bankr. S.D. Ohio 1982). Among other things, adequate assurance may be provided by demonstrating the assignees financial health and experience in managing the type of enterprise or property assigned. See, e.g., Richmond Leasing Co. v. Capital Bank, N.A., 762 F.2d 1303, 1310 (5th Cir. 1985) (holding adequate assurance was present where debtors revenues and income were sufficient to make lease payments); In re Bygaph, Inc., 56 B.R. 596, 605-06 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. 1986) (stating that adequate assurance of future performance is present when the prospective assignee of a lease from the debtor has financial resources and has expressed willingness to devote sufficient funding to the business to give it a strong likelihood of succeeding). 39. The meaning of adequate assurance of future performance depends on the facts and

circumstances of each case, but should be given practical, pragmatic construction. In re Sanshoe Worldwide Corp., 139 B.R. 585, 592 (S.D.N.Y. 1992) (citations omitted), affd, 993 F.2d 300 (2d Cir. 1993). 40. Here, the Debtors and the Landlord have agreed upon the Cure Payment necessary to

assume the Carpet & Acoustics Lease as set forth in the Settlement Agreement, which payment is in settlement of all amounts currently owed under the Master Lease. Furthermore, the

Settlement Agreement provides a mechanism by which the Debtors will provide the Landlord with adequate assurance of the Buyers future performance under the Carpet & Acoustics Lease and, if not satisfactory to the Landlord, provides that the Debtors will furnish such assurance at a later date.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties, any disputes shall be resolved by the parties within ten (10) business days of Landlords receipt of the required written notice and, absent that, the Debtor shall be required to file an expedited motion with the Bankruptcy Court seeking a resolution of the outstanding matters. For the avoidance of doubt, Buyer and/or Tenant also shall be required to pay all outstanding accrued but unpaid fees and costs required under the Lease with respect to the Go-Forward Properties such as real property taxes due as of the date of the Satisfaction of the Conditions Precedent as and when invoiced, provided such requirement does not result in a double payment to Landlord.

Tenant acknowledges and agrees that upon execution by Tenant and Landlord of the purchase and sale agreement for the Subject Properties, Tenant or its successor shall be liable for any and all accrued and unpaid amounts on the Subject Properties, including all unpaid pre or post petition taxes, and Landlord shall have no liability for any such amount. Allowed Claims Regardless of whether Landlord votes in favor of the Debtors proposed chapter 11 plan (but conditioned on Landlord not voting to reject the proposed chapter 11 plan), Landlord shall have an aggregate allowed general unsecured claim against each Tenant of not less than $14,080,908.00, which amount represents, the difference between the net present value of the rent related to the Subject Properties and the Sale Price, which allowed claims shall not be subject to setoff, recoupment or reduction for any reason. Notwithstanding the prior sentence, such allowed claims may be reduced to a single claim if the Debtors are substantively consolidated or the Debtors chapter 11 plan otherwise provides for a single recovery to creditors with joint and several claims and Landlord hereby agrees not to object to substantive consolidation of the Debtors so long as Landlords claim(s) are treated the same as other allowed general unsecured claims against the Debtors.
