11. STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY
Prior to the reorganization described in Note 1, Silvercrest was a private company. SLP historically made, and will continue to make, distributions of its net income to the holders of its partnership units for income tax purposes as required under the terms of its Second Amended and Restated Limited Partnership Agreement and also made, and will continue to make, additional distributions of net income under the terms of its Second Amended and Restated Limited Partnership Agreement. Prior to the reorganization, distributions were treated as equity transactions and recorded in the financial statements on the payment date. Partnership distributions totaled $5,242, $29,317 and $14,749 for the years ended December 31, 2014, 2013 and 2012, respectively. Distributions paid or accrued prior to June 30, 2013 are included in partners’ capital and excess of liabilities, redeemable partners’ capital and partners’ capital over assets, respectively, in the Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition. Distributions accrued and paid subsequent to June 30, 2013 are included in non-controlling interests in the Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition.
SLP distributed $10,000 to its existing partners prior to the consummation of the IPO.
Prior to the reorganization and pursuant to SLP’s Second Amended and Restated Limited Partnership Agreement, as amended and restated, partner incentive allocations were treated as distributions of net income. The remaining net income or loss after partner incentive allocations was generally allocated to the partners based on their pro rata ownership. Net income allocation is subject to the recovery of the allocated losses of prior periods. Distributions of partner incentive allocations of net income for the years ended December 31, 2014, 2013 and 2012 amounted to $14,266, $12,104 and $8,775, respectively, and are included in non-controlling interests as of December 31, 2014 and 2013 and in excess of liabilities, redeemable partners’ capital and partners’ capital over assets as of December 31, 2012. As part of the reorganization, partner incentive distributions for the six months ended June 30, 2013 were treated as an equity transaction and accrued and recorded in accrued compensation in the Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition. Subsequent to the consummation of the IPO, Silvercrest treats SLP’s partner incentive allocations as compensation expense and accrues such amounts when earned. During the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, SLP accrued partner incentive allocations of $18,653 and $14,196, respectively.
The pre-IPO partners of SLP received Silvercrest shares in connection with the reorganization and IPO, as described below.
As described in Note 1, Silvercrest’s equity structure was modified in connection with the IPO-related reorganization.
Silvercrest has the following authorized and outstanding equity:
Silvercrest is dependent on cash generated by SLP to fund any dividends. Generally, SLP will distribute its profits to all of its partners, including Silvercrest, based on the proportionate ownership each holds in SLP. Silvercrest will fund dividends to its stockholders from its proportionate share of those distributions after provision for income taxes and other obligations.
