Phoenix XXII: It's Now or Never

MOD: Copied key posts from the last thread - http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=876014

In lieu of vCash, which would be gambled away, CF gets to be the OP for perhaps the last one of these threads? Imminent is imminent.

Not some separate agreement & file altogether. It puts' a whole new spin on things.
Let's collect all the agreements as if they were Pokemon cards. The Moyes AMULA in 4 parts:

http://docs.bmcgroup.com/phoenixcoyo...9488_756_2.pdf
http://docs.bmcgroup.com/phoenixcoyo...9488_756_3.pdf
http://docs.bmcgroup.com/phoenixcoyo...9488_756_4.pdf


Then we have the substantial draft of the Hulsizer AMULA

The November 2001 Arena Development Agreement is still missing from our set.

I call your pair of AMULA's and raise you a development agreement (which I have, but cannot upload due to size) and, the prize (and solution of much of this) the Easement agreement:

I don't know if they indeed will choose that or not, but I recall reading that was one issue that was being investigated further.

That's why I keep asking for all the blanks to be filled in.

Once upon a time, an arena was built by COG, and they paved some land for parking. Elman promised to build a parking garage at some point in the future.

2001
2002
2003
2004
2005
2006 -- Elman exits, Moyes assumes 100% ownership (more or less) of the Yotes and sole Arena Manager
2007
2008
2009 - Baum awards the Coyotes to the NHL for $140m; Moyes is still the Arena Manager, plus all rights, which the NHL asked for/received by asking him to not terminate the agreement for one additional year. ???

2010 -- June 2010. Moyes agreement is terminated.
2011 - MH, who hasn't bought the team yet, somehow will sell the parking rights to COG.

??????

What did I leave out?

I don't think you left anything out. I want to see how the previous rights have been automatically assigned to MH so he can sell them back to the COG.

I have been trying to find the agreement to fund the losses for the year to read how the extension of Moyes lease from the end of June was worded. If I remember correctly it was only temporary.

If anyone has the link to the thread it would be much appreciated.

So much for staying above the fray. I believe the answer that you are looking for is found when you revise the 2009 entry to your time line.

Specifically in the NHL Asset Purchase Agreement Schedules:

1.1(e) Permitted Encumbrances
Common Operation and Reciprocal Easement Agreement for the Entertainment District at Westgate, made as of the February 15, 2006, by Entertainment Center Development, LLC and Coyote Center Development, LLC.

2.2(ii) Excluded Team Contracts
AMULA Undertaking and Indemnification Agreement, dated as of September 25, 2006, by Coyotes Hockey, LLC and Coyotes Holdings, LLC for the benefit of Coyote Center Development, LLC and Glendale-101 Development, LLC.

The NHL kept the Easement Agmt and excluded the AMULA. Therefore, when the NHL transfers it's holdings Hulsizer, the parking rights go with it.

The MUDA is the initial framework for the entire development. The parking rights at that point were assigned to the Arena Manager. Ellman -> Moyes ->NHL ... once MH signs an Amula and is deemed the arena manager he would have those rights.

GWI never challenged the initial framework for this development in which these rights were initially assigned. Would that not make it difficult to contest at this point?

For the record, the NHL held the right to assume any Glendale Contract per their APA:

NHL APA @ 2.14(b)
Quote:
At any time prior to the rejection of any Glendale Contract (but not later than June 30, 2010), the Buyers may elect to assume such Glendale Contract. In the event the Buyers have elected to assume a Glendale Contract, such Glendale Contract shall be treated as an Added Contract in accordance with Section 2.9(b) and thereafter shall be deemed an Assumed Contract.
Quote:
Glendale Contracts
1. Partition and Sale Agreement, dated as of September 1. 25, 2006, by and among Arizona
Hockey Management, Inc., Arena Management Group, LLC, Arena Management
Holdings, LLC, Arena Development, LLC, Center Ice Holdings, LLC, Coyote Center

LLC, Ellman Holdings, Inc., Glendale-101 Development, LLC, Jerry Moyes, Coyotes

7. Common Operation and Reciprocal Easement Agreement for the Village Retail District at
Westgate, dated as of February 15, 2006, by Coyote Center Development, LLC, to the

I think that some users want to keep revisiting this parking transaction until they find a smoking gun to prove it's invalid. There just isn't one.

So the Arena Manager had the right/opportunity to charge for parking for 3 years before Westgate was even opened in late 2006 but didn't?

But does that require Hulsizer to monetize the rights before they are transferred to him?

The Arena Manager has had the right to charge for parking, but has not done so to date. Without reading through the legal agreements I can't confirm the specific date that right started.

Than again, I should never assume anything when it comes to the Coyotes

Still, when would one expect to hear word on the progress of the bond orders?
When they do start selling, the site below should have some record of it. Today was suppose to be the day. I didn't expect it to be personally, being National Margarita day and all, but who knows the day isn't over yet.

But the I guess the friendly neighborhood investment bank might be will to provide bridge financing...
That's not really an issue. There are several ways it could be done assuming MH will gain the rights to an asset someone is willing and able to pay him $100 million for by a certain date.

No need for offical explanation as I don't recall an offical announcement of Bonds sale. For some reason, I don't think they will offically announce anything from this point forward except that either A)Team is signed, sealed, and delivered to MH, B)Team is signed, sealed, and delivered to TNSE, or C)Team is signed, sealed, and delivered to 3rd party.

I haven't paid much attention to the bonds sale, but is it a public offering or a private placement? If it's private, I don't think you necessarily hear anything until the bonds show up on a financial statement.

The Bonds going on sale were hinged on a pre-order. They were to only go on sale if enough interest was garnered. Of course the pre-requisite volume was never established via media report.

I recall reading in last thread that JPM underwriting it so I would consider it public.

Volume is required but what about timeline? You can't really have pre-orders open for more then 2 weeks (as an example) and say an uptick is imminent. There needs to be some defined time where they can say "It just ain't gonna happen."

I wasn't sure if it was a joke or not, but isn't one of the board members writing a book about this?
