The Trust will issue Liquidating Trust Interests to WMI's former shareholders if the Trust is able to monetize Liquidating Trust Assets in amounts sufficient to pay-in-full claims held by beneficiaries of the Trust who are senior to members of Classes 19 and 22, and if a shareholder satisfied all conditions applicable to receiving any such Liquidating Trust Interests.

There can be no assurances that the Trust will be able to monetize assets in a manner sufficient to give effect to the foregoing.

This would then allow the liquidator, as receiver, to realise the trust assets and apply the proceeds to discharge the liabilities of the company in liquidation, and likely the liquidators fees as well.
