GetSwift Technologies Limited, a leading provider of last mile SaaS logistics technology and services, today announced that all of the First Day Orders sought by the Company in its Subchapter V filing within the Chapter 11 process were granted by the U.S. Court. The First Day Orders permit the Company to maintain its operations in the ordinary course while under Chapter 11 protection. 

In accordance with one of the First Day Orders, GetSwift’s sale of substantially all of the Company’s assets is underway. Pursuant to the order made by the U.S. Court, SF2 GSW, LLC (“SF2”), an affiliate of Stage Equity LLP, was approved as the “stalking horse” bidder for the Company’s SaaS assets. From August 15, 2022 through August 17, 2022, the Company delivered a Notice of Bid Procedures setting out the details of the sale process, including a bid deadline of September 14, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. (EST).
