A bankruptcy court approved the sale of Brilliant Energy LLC's residential customer book and related assets to Evolve Retail Energy LLC d/b/a Octopus Energy US, as described in our prior story below
During a court hearing, a trustee for Brilliant confirmed that it also conducted a sale process for the commercial customer book, but the trustee did not discuss any result of such commercial sale process or the disposition of the commercial customer book
The Trustee for the estate of Brilliant Energy LLC has sought court approval for sale of Brilliant's residential customer book and related assets to Evolve Retail Energy LLC d/b/a Octopus Energy US
A sale hearing on the proposed sale is scheduled for later today (check this page later today for updates; you may need to refresh the page)
The to-be purchased assets include all residential Customer Contracts and all goodwill associated therewith; all residential Customer Data; copies of all books and records of the business related solely and exclusively to the Included Assets and Included Liabilities; and Hedges
Under the agreement, Octopus shall purchase the Included Assets for an aggregate
purchase price equal to $250.00 multiplied by the number of unique ESI
IDs for each residential customer that is served under a customer contract that is listed on the
pre-closing customer list and that goes on-flow as a served customer of buyer for at least thirty
Based on a good faith deposit included in the court documents, the anticipated purchase price is $2.23 million (which would reflect about 8,900 customers)
The proposed sale results from a previously reported sale process.
The Trustee said, "The total consideration provided by the Purchaser for the Assets as reflected in the Purchase Agreement is the highest and best offer received by the Trustee for the Assets. The Trustee’s determination that the Purchase Agreement constitutes the highest and best offer constitutes a valid and sound exercise of the Trustee’s business judgment and the Trustee’s decision to enter into the Purchase Agreement constitutes a proper exercise of the fiduciary duties of the Trustee."
