- WHAT IS THE IMPACT OF THE MERGER OF APOLLO AND ATHENE?
On January 1, 2022, Apollo and Athene completed their previously announced merger. Any Class A shares you owned in Apollo Global Management, Inc. (“Pre-Merger APO Shares”) and/or Athene Holding Ltd. (“Pre-Merger ATH Shares”) converted into the new Apollo Global Management, Inc. holding company entity (“Post-Merger APO Shares”) by operation of law on the day of the Merger.
- WAS THE MERGER A TAXABLE EVENT WITH RESPECT TO MY AGM INC. SHARES?
No, under U.S. tax principles, the Merger was structured as a tax-free Section 351 transaction for shareholders - shareholders will not be required to recognize gain or loss for U.S. tax purposes.
Under non-U.S. principles, the Merger may be treated differently, and we recommend non-U.S. holders consult their tax advisors with respect to the impact, if any, on their personal tax positions.
- DID THE MERGER IMPACT THE TAX BASIS OF MY PRE-MERGER APO AND/OR PRE-MERGER ATH SHARES HELD?
Your aggregate tax basis in your Post-Merger APO shares should equal the sum of your aggregate tax basis in (1) your Pre-Merger APO Shares and (2) your aggregate tax basis Pre-Merger ATH Shares you may own. Please note, however, that following the merger, your tax basis in each Post-Merger APO Share is generally expected to have a blended basis equal to the average basis of your Pre-Merger APO Shares and your Pre-Merger ATH Shares. We recommend that you consult your tax advisors to determine the tax basis consequences of the Merger based on your own circumstances.
- DID THE MERGER IMPACT THE HOLDING PERIOD OF MY PRE-MERGER APO AND/OR ATH SHARES?
If you held Pre-Merger APO and/or ATH shares with a mix of holding periods consisting of a) shares held for less than one-year (“Short-Term Shares”) and b) shares held for one year or more (“Long-Term Shares”), each Post-Merger Share of APO you hold following the Merger will have a split holding period. The split between the short-term portion and the long-term portion should be based on the relative FMV split between short-term shares and long-term shares immediately prior to the Merger. We recommend that you consult your tax advisors to determine the holding period consequences of the Merger based on your circumstances. In addition, please note Morgan Stanley will not be in a position to provide computations with respect to the holding period of your Pre-Merger APO Shares.
- WHERE CAN I FIND MY U.S. FEDERAL INCOME TAX BASIS AND MY HOLDING PERIOD FOR MY ATH SHARES?
Depending on when and from where you received ATH shares, your U.S. federal income tax basis and holding period of your respective ATH shares may vary.
- IS MY ADJUSTED TAX BASIS AND HOLDING PERIOD FOR MY POST-MERGER APO SHARES MAINTAINED BY APOLLO?
No. Each shareholder should maintain their own individual tax records. Your broker may track and report the adjusted tax basis of any shares acquired after the Merger. Please contact your broker directly with any questions.
- WILL I STILL RECEIVE FORMS 1099 OR FORMS 1042-S, AS APPLICABLE, AFTER THE MERGER?
Yes. Going forward, you will receive a Form 1099 (in the case of U.S. persons) or a Form 1042-S (in the case of non-U.S. persons), as applicable, reflecting distributions paid from the company following the Merger. You should receive the relevant Forms directly from your broker.
- HOW WILL DISTRIBUTIONS BE TAXED AFTER THE MERGER?
After the Merger, distributions generally are expected to be treated the same as distributions that were made before the Merger. Such distributions are anticipated to be treated as “qualified dividends” for U.S. federal income tax purposes, which for U.S. holders are currently subject to U.S. federal tax at a rate of 20% (and are reported on a Form 1099 or, as applicable a Form 1042-S). Upon a sale of shares, you will recognize capital gain or loss. Non-U.S. holders may be subject to 30% withholding tax on dividends, subject to reduction by treaty, and are not subject to U.S. tax on capital gains. As was the case before the Merger, in order for a non-U.S. holder to claim treaty benefits, the company must have a valid W-8BEN on file for such holder. We recommend that non-U.S. holders consult their tax advisors with respect to the tax consequences and reporting requirements related to distributions and gains under the tax laws in their jurisdiction of residence.
- I WAS A NON-U.S. HOLDER OF PRE-MERGER APO AND/OR PRE-MERGER ATH SHARES. WILL THE MERGER CAUSE MY PRE-MERGER APO AND/OR PRE-MERGER ATH SHARES TO BE SUBJECT TO TAXATION UNDER THE FOREIGN INVESTMENT IN U.S. REAL PROPERTY TAX ACT ("FIRPTA")?
The determination of whether the company is a USRPHC following the Merger will depend on the fair market value of our U.S. real property interests relative to the fair market value of our non-U.S. real property interests and our other business assets. However, even if we are or were to become a USRPHC, gain arising from a sale or other taxable disposition by a non-U.S. holder of Pre-Merger APO Shares is generally not treated as effectively connected income (ECI) and subject to taxation if the shares are “regularly traded,” as defined by applicable Treasury Regulations, on an established securities market, and such Non-U.S. Holder owned, actually and constructively, 5% or less of Pre-Merger APO Shares throughout the shorter of the five-year period ending on the date of disposition or the Non-U.S. Holder’s holding period. Provided the above is the case, gains derived from your Pre-Merger APO Shares are not expected to result in ECI subject to U.S. taxation under FIRPTA. Non-U.S. holders of more than 5% of Pre-Merger APO Shares during the relevant period should consult their tax advisors.
