Basis of Presentation Note
An accompanying note that briefly describes the basis of presentation.
Transactions with and Balances Due To / From Related Parties and Non- Obligated Subsidiaries
An issuer’s or guarantor’s amounts due from, amounts due to, and transactions with non-obligated subsidiaries and related parties must be presented in separate line items.
Combined Basis Presentation
The summarized financial information of each issuer and guarantor consolidated in the parent company’s consolidated financial statements is permitted to be presented on a combined basis with the summarized financial information of the parent company. However, if information provided in response to disclosures specified in S-X 13- 01 (e.g., one of the non-financial disclosures) is applicable to one or more, but not all, issuers and guarantors, separate disclosure of summarized financial information for the issuers and guarantors to which the information applies is required. In limited circumstances (i.e., where the separate financial information applicable to those issuers and/or guarantors can be easily understood), narrative disclosure may be provided in lieu of such separate summarized financial information.
Elimination of Certain Intercompany Balances and Transactions
Intercompany balances and transactions between issuers and guarantors whose information is presented on a combined basis must be eliminated in the financial disclosures.
Exclusion of Non-Obligated Subsidiary Information
The summarized financial information of issuers and guarantors must exclude subsidiaries that are not issuers or guarantors, even if an issuer or guarantor would otherwise consolidate such non-issuer and non-guarantor subsidiaries. An issuer’s or guarantor’s investment in a subsidiary that is not an issuer or guarantor shall not be presented.
Periods to Present
The summarized financial information must be provided as of and for the most recently ended fiscal year and year-to-date interim period, if applicable, included in the parent company’s consolidated financial statements.
Non-Exclusive Scenarios Permitting Omission of Summarized Financial Information
The summarized financial information may be omitted on the basis that it is not material if one of the four non-exclusive scenarios in S-X 13-01(a)(4)(vi) is applicable and the related scenario is disclosed. See Section 2520.3 for a discussion of the second non-exclusive scenario.
Additional Information Required to be Disclosed
Disclose any financial and narrative information about each guarantor if the information would be material for investors to evaluate the sufficiency of the guarantee, and disclose sufficient information so as to make the financial and non-financial information presented not misleading.
Recently-Acquired Subsidiary Issuers and Guarantors
Disclose pre-acquisition summarized financial information specified in S-X 13-01(a)(4) for recently-acquired subsidiary issuers and guarantors in a Securities Act registration statement filed in connection with the offer and sale of the guaranteed security if the parent company has acquired a significant “business” after the date of its most recent balance sheet included in its consolidated financial statements and that acquired business and/or one or more of its subsidiaries are obligated as issuers and/or guarantors. See Section 2530 below for additional information.
2515.4 Eligible Issuer and Guarantor Structures Condition – Parent Company Obligation is Full and Unconditional – The ability to provide supplemental financial and non-financial disclosures in lieu of separate subsidiary issuer and guarantor financial statements is only available when the parent company’s obligation is full and unconditional. The parent company’s role as issuer, co-issuer, or full and unconditional guarantor with respect to the guaranteed security determines whether the issuer and guarantor structure is eligible. See eligible structures at S-X 3-10(a)(1)(i) and (ii).
A guarantee is “full and unconditional,” if, when an issuer of a guaranteed security has failed to make a scheduled payment, the guarantor is obligated to make the scheduled payment immediately and, if it does not, any holder of the guaranteed security may immediately bring suit directly against the guarantor for payment of all amounts due and payable. [S-X 3-10(b)(3)].
2515.5 Subsidiary Guarantors - The categories of eligible issuer and guarantor structures at S-X 3-10(a)(1)(i) and (ii) do not refer to subsidiary guarantors. Although one or more other subsidiaries of the parent company may guarantee the security, the eligibility of an issuer and guarantor structure depends on the role of the parent company as issuer, co-issuer, or full and unconditional guarantor with respect to the guaranteed security. Separate financial statements of consolidated subsidiary guarantors may be omitted for each issuer and guarantor structure that is eligible if the other conditions of S-X 3-10 are met.
Despite not affecting whether the issuer and guarantor structure is eligible, the role of subsidiary guarantors and nature of their guarantees affect what disclosure is required. For example, subsidiary guarantors are required to be identified pursuant to S-X 13-01(a)(1), and disclosure of the terms and conditions of the guarantees is required by S-X 13-01(a)(2), which includes but is not limited to any limitations and conditions of a subsidiary’s guarantee, whether the guarantee is joint and several with other guarantees, and any guarantee release provisions. Further, separate disclosure of summarized financial information applicable to subsidiary guarantors to which such disclosures apply is required by S-X 13-01(a)(4)(iv).
