The common units of The Carlyle Group L.P. trade on the Nasdaq Global Select Market with CG as its ticker symbol
The first day of public trading of common units of The Carlyle Group L.P. was May 3, 2012.
Our general partner currently intends to cause The Carlyle Group L.P. to make quarterly distributions to common unitholders of its share of distributions from Carlyle Holdings, net of taxes and amounts payable under the tax receivable agreement. It is currently anticipated that Carlyle Holdings will make quarterly distributions to its partners, including The Carlyle Group L.P.'s wholly owned subsidiaries, that will enable The Carlyle Group L.P. to pay a quarterly distribution of $0.16 per common unit, with the first such quarterly distribution being ratably reduced to reflect the portion of the quarter following the completion of the initial public offering. In addition, it is currently anticipated that Carlyle Holdings will make annual distributions to its partners, including The Carlyle Group L.P.'s wholly owned subsidiaries, in an amount that, taken together with the other above-described quarterly distributions, represents substantially all of our Distributable Earnings in excess of the amount determined by our general partner to be necessary or appropriate to provide for the conduct of our business, to make appropriate investments in our business and our funds or to comply with applicable law or any of our financing agreements. We anticipate that the aggregate amount of our distributions for most years will be less than our Distributable Earnings for that year due to these funding requirements.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the declaration and payment of any distributions will be at the sole discretion of our general partner, which may change our distribution policy at any time. Our general partner will take into account: general economic and business conditions; our strategic plans and prospects; our business and investment opportunities; our financial condition and operating results, including our cash position, our net income and our realizations on investments made by our investment funds; working capital requirements and anticipated cash needs; contractual restrictions and obligations, including payment obligations pursuant to the tax receivable agreement and restrictions pursuant to our credit facility; legal, tax and regulatory restrictions; other constraints on the payment of distributions by us to our common unitholders or by our subsidiaries to us; and such other factors as our general partner may deem relevant.
Carlyle's independent registered public accounting firm is Ernst and Young LLP.
