Item 1.03 Bankruptcy or Receivership

 

On March 19, 2020, Globe Photos, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Photo File, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company (“Photo File”, and together with the Company, the “Debtors”), each filed a voluntary petition for relief (each, a “Chapter 7 Case”, and collectively, the “Chapter 7 Cases”) under the provisions of Chapter 7 of Title 11 of the United States Code, 11 U.S.C. §§ 101 et seq. (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Nevada (the “Bankruptcy Court”).

 

As a result of the filing of the Chapter 7 Cases, a Chapter 7 trustee, who may or may not be the same individual, will be appointed by the Bankruptcy Court and will assume control of the Debtors. The assets of the Company and Photo File will be liquidated in accordance with the Code. The Company’s board of directors, after spending considerable time and effort attempting to pursue and complete strategic alternatives to finance, restructure or sell the Company and not being successful, concluded that no viable options remained for continuing operations, and that the Chapter 7 Cases are the only alternative available to the Company and Photo File.

 

The case number for the Company’s Chapter 7 Case is 2:20-bk-11620. The case number for Photo File’s Chapter 7 Case is 2:20-bk-11619. The initial hearing for creditors in the Chapter 7 Cases has been scheduled for April 22, 2020, and the Notice of Bankruptcy Case Filing has been sent to known creditors. A receiver/trustee has been appointed.

 

Most of the Debtors’ filings with the Bankruptcy Court will be available to the public on its website at: www.nvb.uscourts.gov. The Debtor undertakes no obligation to make any further public announcement with respect to the documents filed with the Bankruptcy Court or any matters referred to therein.

 

Item 2.04 Triggering Events That Accelerate or Increase a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement

 

The commencement of the Chapter 7 Cases described in Item 1.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K constitutes an event of default under certain of the Company’s debt instruments, which results in acceleration of the Company’s obligations under such debt instruments.

 

Any efforts to enforce payment obligations under such debt instruments are automatically stayed as a result of the filing of the Chapter 7 Cases, and the creditors’ rights of enforcement in respect of the debt instruments are subject to the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code.

 

Item 8.01 Other Events

 

The Company cautions that trading in the Company’s securities during the pendency of the Chapter 7 Cases is highly speculative and poses substantial risks. Trading prices for the Company’s securities may bear little or no relationship to the actual recovery, if any, by holders of the Company’s securities in the Chapter 7 Cases.
