Item 1.03 Bankruptcy or Receivership.


On February 11, 2021, in Securities and Exchange Commission v. GPB Capital Holdings, LLC; Ascendant Capital, LLC; Ascendant Alternative Strategies, LLC; David Gentile; Jeffrey Schneider; and Jeffrey Lash (the “SEC Action”), the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York (the “EDNY Court”) appointed, upon consent of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and GPB Capital Holdings, LLC (“GPB CH”), Joseph T. Gardemal III as independent monitor over GPB CH (the “Monitorship”). On June 13, 2022, the SEC filed by Order to Show Cause in the SEC Action an application to (i) convert the Monitorship to a receivership, and appoint Mr. Gardemal as receiver; and (ii) impose a litigation injunction on cases filed against GPB CH and GPB Holdings II, LP (the “Partnership”), amongst others (the “Receivership Application”). The Receivership Application was filed with the EDNY Court with consent of GPB CH’s management.


On December 8, 2023, the EDNY Court entered an order that (i) the Monitorship be converted to a receivership over GPB CH and related entities (the “Receivership Entities”), including the Partnership, and (ii) a litigation injunction be entered (the “Receivership Order”). Effective the same date, the EDNY Court took exclusive jurisdiction and possession of all of the assets of the Receivership Entities, together with all proceeds thereof (collectively, the “Receivership Assets”). Mr. Gardemal (hereinafter, the “Receiver”) was appointed to serve without bond as receiver for the receivership estate of the Receivership Entities. Pursuant to the Receivership Order, the Receiver is authorized to have all powers, authorities, rights and privileges possessed by the Receivership Entities, and any officers, directors, managers, managing members, and general and limited partners of the Receivership Entities. The Receiver is appointed to administer the Receivership Assets with the care and diligence that an ordinary prudent individual would use in handling such person’s own estate.







Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
