Investor FAQs

  • An MLP is a publicly traded partnership. The nature of a partnership provides for the "pass through" of income to its partners. This essentially avoids double taxation on profits often paid by corporations, which pay corporate income tax in addition to its shareholders paying taxes on dividends. Individual investors buy ownership interests, or units, in the partnership through a stock exchange similar to purchasing shares of stock in a corporation. Like other publicly-traded entities, MLPs file quarterly and annual financial statements with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
  • In the prospectus filed with the SEC when an MLP is going public, the MLP makes a statement as to its intention to distribute a specified minimum level of cash on a quarterly basis. This amount of cash flow is referred to as the “minimum quarterly distribution,” or MQD. The common unitholders have first priority on cash distributions to the extent of the MQD. In addition, if there is any shortfall in the payment of the MQD from prior quarters, all arrearages on the MQD must be paid to the common unitholders before any distributions can be made to the subordinated unitholders. Once the common unitholders have received the MQD (and any arrearages), the subordinated unitholders receive the MQD, and thereafter the common unitholders and subordinated unitholders share in cash distributions above the MQD on a pro rata basis.
  • Distributions are paid within 45 days of the end of the quarter.
  • Cypress Energy Partners, L.P. will not pay any federal income tax. Instead, each unitholder will be required to report on his income tax return his share of our income, gains, losses and deductions without regard to whether corresponding cash distributions are received. Our unitholders receive a Schedule K-1 during late February to advise of the income they are responsible for reporting on their individual income tax returns.

    It is the responsibility of each unitholder to investigate the legal and tax consequences under the law of pertinent states and localities of his investment in Cypress Energy Partners, L.P. We suggest that you consult with your own tax advisor.
