Liquidating distributions cash proceeds
Bull's-eye market: will large companies in the UK soon embrace the American fashion of issuing targeted stock?
Stated in a more simple manner, a disproportionate distribution will not be treated as creating a second class of stock, provided the underlying stock provides both A and B with identical to the distribution, despite the fact that a distribution happened to be made disproportionately. (the “Fund”) today made a liquidating distribution pursuant to the plan of liquidation and dissolution approved by the Fund’s stockholders at the 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Liquidating Distribution”) in exchange for and redemption of all of the Fund’s issued and outstanding common stock.The gross proceeds of the Liquidating Distribution is to be comprised of cash of $14.8840 per share of the Fund’s common stock plus equity interests in JPMorgan China Region Fund, Inc.Generally speaking, secured creditors have the highest liquidation rights, followed by general creditors, preferred stockholders, and, finally, common stockholders.See also: Bankruptcy., obligations between or among owners (shareholders, partners, members), or liability or indemnity of managers (officers, directors, managers, trustees, or members or partners functioning as managers) of corporations, partnerships, limited partnerships, limited liability companies or partnerships; trade secrets and non-compete agreements; intellectual property; securities or state securities laws; antitrust statutes; shareholder derivative actions and related class actions; and corporate trust affairs or director and officer liability.Contacts [email protected](212) 355-4449 View original content: New York REIT, Inc.
Answer: This is a commonly misunderstood area of tax law. Section 1.1361-1(l)(1) provide, in part, that “a corporation that has more than one class of stock does not qualify as a small business corporation.” The regulations go on to provide that a corporation is treated as having only one class of stock if all outstanding shares of stock of the corporation confer identical rights to distribution and liquidation proceeds.
Conversely, anyone buying the shares between the record date and the ex-dividend date will also be acquiring the due bill and will be entitled to receive the distribution payable on to real estate funds managed by Brookfield Asset Management.
The 333 West 34th Street property was part of the collateral for the Company's cross collateralized and secured loan.
The liquidating distribution is being paid from the net proceeds from recent property sales.
Investors should note that the ex-dividend date is set by the NYSE.
In short, S corporations have more flexibility than you realize to make distributions that are not perfectly pro-rata to its shareholders. Relevant Law: The genesis of the confusion is found in Section 1361(b)(1)(D), which provides that in order for a corporation to be eligible to make an S election, the corporation can only have one class of stock outstanding. As you can see, there is no prohibition on an S corporation having voting and nonvoting stock; rather, it simply can’t have shares of stock that offer the holders different rights to distribution or liquidation proceeds. Here’s the thing; there’s nothing in the statute or regulations that says you can’t make a disproportionate distribution; it simply says that the underlying stock can’t confer upon the shareholders different to distributions.
