Qualified bid requirements aim to "eliminate potential overbidders who are not serious about purchasing the debtor's assets, ensure the sale can be rapidly closed if an overbidder should purchase the assets, and ensure that the net purchase price is higher than the original bid should overbidding occur.
C, it is normally implied in a contract for the sale of a commodity that the seller will neither seek out nor accept offers from overbidders.
But the promisor could have negotiated with the promisee for a release, which would have allowed her both to not breach and to sell the commodity to the overbidder.
Overbidder has a strategic need for the Acme, because he is putting together a hotel chain and needs a hotel in Chicago to complete the chain.
If specific performance is unavailable (because, for example, Seller completes the sale of the Acme to Overbidder before Buyer can get to court), Buyer's expectation damages would be $1 million, leaving Seller with a gain of $4 million from the breach.
For example, in a variant of the Acme Hotel hypothetical, Overbidder may offer to buy the Acme from Seller without Seller having solicited the offer, because Overbidder independently identified the Acme as a desirable purchase.
B, in a case like Acme Hotel, even if Seller finds Overbidder through the exercise of skill and diligence, Seller's gain from breach should not be apportioned between Seller and Buyer, because Seller wrongfully breached the contract by searching for an overbidder after she had contracted to sell to Buyer.
I will call the most significant of these paradigms--indeed the poster-child of the theory--the Overbidder Paradigm.
