The umbrella partnership-corporation advantage

​Discover the benefits of an exit strategy that's growing in popularity. Learn what opportunities a UP-C structure can provide for private equity firms.

Umbrella partnership corporation structure

The umbrella partnership corporation structure (UP-C) was not commonly leveraged as an exit strategy five years ago. Recently, however, the use of this structure has increased due to the multiple benefits it may provide.

This Closer look examines UP-C and its recent history, as well as the potential benefits during three important events:
  1. Initial Public Offering
  2. Transaction structuring
  3. Succession planning
