Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 226 / Wednesday, November 23, 2011 / Proposed Rules owned entirely by public shareholders. No other changes in the ownership of L’s stock occur prior to December 31, 2010. (ii) Analysis. The July redemption is a small redemption because the number of shares redeemed (60) does not exceed 106, the small redemption limitation (10 percent of the number of common shares outstanding on January 1, 2010). Under paragraph (j)(14) of this section, the segregation rules of § 1.382–2T(j)(2)(iii)(C) do not apply to the July redemption. Under paragraph (j)(14)(iv) of this section, Public L is treated as having all 60 shares redeemed. (iii) The December redemption is a small redemption because the number of shares redeemed (90) does not exceed 106, the small redemption limitation (10 percent of the number of common shares outstanding on January 1, 2010). However, under paragraph (j)(14)(i) of this section, only 46 of the 90 shares redeemed are exempted from the segregation rules of § 1.382–2T(j)(2)(iii)(C) because the total number of shares of common stock redeemed in the July and December redemptions exceeds 106, the small redemption limitation, by 44. Accordingly, under paragraph (j)(14)(iv) of this section, Public L is treated as having 46 shares redeemed in the December redemption. Section 1.382–2T(j)(2)(iii)(C) applies to the remaining 44 shares redeemed. Accordingly, Public L is segregated into two different public groups immediately before the transaction (and thereafter) so that the redeemed interests (Public RL) are treated as part of a public group that is separate from the ownership interests that are not redeemed (Public CL). Therefore, as a result of the December redemption, Public CL’s interest in L increases by 4.4 percentage points (from 95.6 percent (956/1,000) to 100 percent (910/910)) on the December 31, 2010 testing date. For purposes of determining whether an ownership change occurs on any subsequent testing date having a testing period that includes such redemption, Public CL is treated as a 5-percent shareholder whose percentage ownership interests in L increased by 4.4 percentage points as a result of the redemption. Example 8. Segregation rules inapplicable—proportionate amount. (i) Facts. P1 is a corporation that owns 8 percent of the stock of L. The remaining L stock (92 percent) is owned by Public L. P1 is entirely owned by Public P1. Excluding cash and cash items within the meaning of section 382(h)(3)(B)(ii), P1’s investment in L represents 11 percent of P1’s gross assets. P2 is a corporation owned 90 percent by individual A and 10 percent by a public group (Public P2). On May 22, 2013, P1 merges into P2 with the shareholders of P1 receiving an amount of P2 stock equal to 25 percent of the value of P2 immediately after the reorganization. Following the merger, P2’s investment in L represents 6 percent of the combined gross assets of P1 and P2 (excluding cash and cash items). L was owned 92 percent by Public L and 8 percent by P1 throughout the testing period ending on the date of the merger. (ii) Analysis. Assuming L can establish that P2 owns 10 percent or less (by value) of L on May 22, 2013 pursuant to the operating rules VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:29 Nov 22, 2011 Jkt 226001 of paragraph (j)(15)(iv) of this section, the segregation rules of § 1.382–2T(j)(3)(iii) will not apply to segregate P1’s direct public group (Public P1) immediately before the merger from P2’s direct public group (Public P2). Thus, following the merger, P2 is owned 67.5 percent (90% × 75%) by A and 32.5 percent (25% + (10% × 75%)) by Public P2. Pursuant to paragraph (j)(15)(ii)(B) of this section, Public P2’s lowest percentage of ownership is the sum of its lowest percentage of ownership (zero) and a proportionate amount of former Public P1’s lowest ownership percentage of L of 2.6 percent (32.5% × 8%). P2 will be treated as having one public group whose ownership interest in L was 2.6 percent before the merger and remains 2.6 percent after the merger. Because Public P2 owns less than 5 percent of L, Public P2 is treated as part of Public L. See § 1.382–2T(j)(1)(iv). Thus, pursuant to paragraph (j)(15)(ii)(B) of this section, Public L’s lowest ownership percentage of L during the testing period is 94.6 percent. Example 9. Segregation rules inapplicable—prior increase in ownership by former public group during testing period. (i) Facts. The facts are the same as Example 8, except that P1 acquired its 8 percent interest in L during the testing period that includes the merger. (ii) Analysis. Pursuant to the rules of paragraph (j)(15)(ii)(A) of this section, the amount of increase in the percentage of stock ownership by Public P2 is the sum of its increase and any increase by a former public group (Public P1). Accordingly, Public P2, the continuing public group, is treated as having increased its ownership interest by 2.6 percent, and Public L is treated as increasing its ownership interest by 2.6 percent. Example 10. Ownership limitation based upon fair market value. (i) Facts. L has two classes of stock outstanding, common stock and preferred stock. The preferred stock is stock within the meaning of § 1.382–2(a)(3). A direct public group (Public L) owns all of the common stock of L. P purchased 100 percent of the preferred stock of L at a time when the preferred stock represented 9 percent of the value of all the outstanding stock of L. The common stock owned by Public L represents the remaining 91 percent of the value of the stock of L. P has one class of common stock outstanding, all of which is owned by a direct public group (Public P). On October 7, 2013, P redeems 30 percent of its single outstanding class of common stock. Due to a decline in the relative value of the common stock of L, the preferred stock of L represents 40 percent of the value of all the outstanding stock of L on the date of the redemption. (ii) Analysis. The rules of paragraph (j)(15) of this section do not apply to the redemption because P owns more than 10 percent of L (by value) on that date. Example 11. Ownership limitation—fair market value includes preferred stock. The facts are the same as in Example 10, except that the preferred stock is not stock within the meaning of § 1.382–2(a)(3). The results are the same as in Example 10. Example 12. Ownership limitation— application of attribution rules. (i) Facts. Individual A owns all the outstanding stock PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 72367 of X. A also owns preferred stock in Y that is not stock within the meaning § 1.382– 2(a)(3), which represents 50 percent of the value of Y. All the Y common stock is owned by public owners. Each of X and Y own 6 percent of the single class of L stock outstanding. On October 6, 2013, Y redeems 15 percent of its common stock. (ii) Analysis. In determining the ownership limitation of this paragraph, the attribution rules of section 318(a) apply. Pursuant to section 318(a)(2), A is treated as owning the L stock owned by X. Pursuant to section 318(a)(3), Y is treated as owning the L stock that A indirectly owns. Because Y’s ownership of L exceeds the ownership limitation, the rules of paragraph (j)(15) of this section do not apply. (17) Effective/applicability date. This paragraph (j) generally applies to issuances or deemed issuances of stock in taxable years beginning on or after November 4, 1992. However, paragraphs (j)(13) through (j)(15) and Examples 5 through 12 of paragraph (j)(16) apply to testing dates occurring on or after the date these regulations are published as final regulations in the Federal Register. See § 1.382–3(j)(14)(ii) and (iii), as contained in 26 CFR part 1 revised as of April 1, 1994, for the application of paragraph (j)(10) to stock issued on the exercise of certain options exercised on or after November 4, 1992 and for an election to apply paragraphs (j)(1) through (12) retroactively to certain issuances and deemed issuances of stock occurring in taxable years prior to November 4, 1992.
