The Company has secured $60.8 million in senior secured super priority debtor-in-possession financing consisting of $35.5 million in new money to be provided by an entity affiliated with certain of the Company's existing stakeholders, subject to court approval, to facilitate the wind-down and pursue a value maximizing sale of its real estate and other assets.

To date, all 99 Cents Only Stores remain open, and the Company has commenced going out of business sales at all 371 store locations, offering customers significantly reduced prices on a wide range of products.

The Company has filed customary motions with the Court to support its operations through the wind-down process, including payment of employee wages.

Milbank LLP is serving as legal advisor to 99 Cents Only Stores, Jefferies LLC is serving as the Company's investment bank, and Alvarez & Marsal is serving as the Company's restructuring advisor. Hilco Global is assisting the Company with its previously announced liquidation event, and Jefferies LLC and Hilco Global are managing the sale of the Company's real estate assets, both owned and leased, in Arizona, California, Nevada and Texas.
