Note 13: Variable Interest Entities
P3 LLC has Management Services Agreements (“MSAs”) and deficit funding agreements with the Network. The MSAs provide that the P3 LLC will furnish administrative personnel, office supplies and equipment, general business services, contract negotiation, and billing and collection services to the Network. Fees for these services are the excess of the Network’s revenue over expenses. Per the deficit funding agreements, P3 LLC is obligated to advance funds, as needed, to support the Network’s working capital needs to the extent operating expenses exceed gross revenue. These advances accrue interest at a rate of prime plus 2%. Net advances made to the Network and accrued interest on those advances are presented within due to consolidated entities of P3 in the table below. Additionally, P3 LLC entered into stock transfer restriction agreements with the practice shareholders of the Network, which, by way of a call option, unequivocally permit P3 LLC to appoint successor physicians if a practice shareholder vacates their ownership position. Accordingly, P3 LLC identifies itself as the primary beneficiary of the Network. Practice shareholders, who are employees of P3 LLC, retain equity ownership in the Network, which represents nominal non-controlling interests; however, the non-controlling interests do not participate in the profit or loss of the Network.
P3 LLC, directly or indirectly via its wholly owned subsidiaries, may not use or access any net assets of these VIEs to settle its obligations or the obligations of its wholly owned subsidiaries. Additionally, the creditors of the VIEs do not have recourse to the net assets of P3 LLC.
Since P3 LLC represents substantially all the assets and liabilities of the Company, the following tables provide a summary of the assets, liabilities, and operating performance of only VIEs held at the P3 LLC level.
The entire disclosure for a variable interest entity (VIE), including but not limited to, judgments and assumptions in determining whether to consolidate and in identifying the primary beneficiary, gain (loss) recognized on the initial consolidation of the VIE, terms of arrangements, amounts and classification of the VIE's assets and liabilities, and the entity's maximum exposure to loss.
