Gulf States Toyota objects to bid, sale of Plainview dealership

LUBBOCK, Texas -

Gulf States Toyota objects in U.S. Bankruptcy Court to Reagor-Dykes' request to allow it to begin the process to sell its assets. The Reagor-Dykes Auto Group includes a Toyota dealership in Plainview.

In the objection filed Friday, Gulf States Toyota notes its dealer agreement has twice been extended by six months. The current term expires Nov. 8. 

As we earlier reported, the chief restructuring officer for Reagor-Dykes filed documents asking for approval to start bidding procedures for remaining assets. This would allow KamKad Automotive Holdings to enter as a "stalking horse bidder" and allow a competitive bidding process to begin.

The request to allow bidding and sale listed sale date of Nov. 28. Gulf States Toyota argues Reagor-Dykes can't assign an agreement that has already expired. Further, even if the dealer agreement was extended, Gulf States Toyota writes it has the right to refuse a contract and sees issue with potential transfer of ownership and change of management.

The company also lists Reagor Plainview in breach of these obligations: "(i) failure to maintain the required minimum net working capital requirements; (ii) failure to maintain an adequate flooring line; (iii) failure to pay off consumer trade-in obligations; (iv) failure to maintain acceptable sales customer satisfaction performance; (v) failure to maintain minimum vehicle inventories; (vi) failure to actively and effectively advertise, merchandise, promote and sell Toyota products; (vii) failure to comply with consumer protection statutes, rules, and regulations; (viii) failure to maintain an adequate genuine Toyota parts inventory; and (ix) failure to keep dealership operations open for business during customary hours."
