Note 25: Variable Interest Entities
The Company prepares its consolidated financial statements in accordance with ASC 810, Consolidation, which provides for the consolidation of VIEs of which an entity is the primary beneficiary.
In connection with the Business Combinations further described in Note 1, the Company became the sole managing member of P3 LLC. The rights of the non-managing members of P3 LLC are limited and protective in nature and do not give substantive participation rights over the sole managing member. As a result, P3 LLC is considered a VIE. As the sole managing member, the Company has the right to direct the most significant activities of P3 LLC and the obligation to absorb losses and receive benefits and accordingly is considered the primary beneficiary. Since P3 LLC represents substantially all the assets and liabilities of the Company, the numbers and language below refer to only VIEs held at the P3 LLC level.
Additionally, P3 LLC is the primary beneficiary of the Network.
P3, LLC entered Stock Transfer Restriction Agreements with the Practice Shareholders of the Network. The Stock Transfer Restriction Agreements, by way of a call option, unequivocally permit P3 LLC to appoint Successor Physicians if a Practice Shareholder vacates their ownership position.
Pursuant to ASC 810, Consolidation, both the “power of control” and “economics” criteria were reviewed for VIE consideration. P3 LLC’s ability to appoint Successor Physicians the Network demonstrates “power of control”. Also, there are Deficit Funding Agreements in place between P3 LLC and the Network. The Deficit Funding Agreement between P3 LLC and the members of the Network states that P3 LLC will advance funds, as needed, to support working capital needs to the extent operating expenses exceed gross revenue. These funding arrangements further illustrate and fulfill the economic criteria for VIE consolidation.
Practice Shareholders, who are employees of the Company, retain equity ownership in the Network, which represents nominal noncontrolling interests. The noncontrolling interests do not participate in the profit or loss of the Network, however.
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.
The following tables provide a summary of the VIE’s assets, liabilities and operating performance.
No definition available.
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.
