Up-C IPOs: Structure, Impact and Benefits

Despite market volatility, 2018 has proven to be a strong year for IPOs.  Under the right circumstances, an Up-C structure implemented in connection with an IPO has the potential to deliver significant economic and tax benefits to financial sponsors and other selling shareholders.

In this CLE webinar*, we explain:

  • When an “Up-C” structure might be appropriate for an IPO candidate
  • Documenting the arrangements
  • Addressing the tax receivable agreement
  • The benefits to various stakeholders
  • Life as a public company with an up-C structure and how it impacts financial and SEC reporting
  • Undertaking acquisitions using an up-C structure
  • Unwinding an up-C structure

After this session, attendees  will:

  • Understand the components of an up-C structure and when to implement
  • Counsel clients on the benefits of an up-C structure
  • Understand the economic and tax benefits to financial sponsors

*CLE is approved or in the process of approval for 60 minutes of CLE credit.  The type of credit allowed will be determined by the state governing MCLE Board
