What Is My Basis In Aptar Shares That I Received As Part Of The Spin-Off From Pittway Corporation In 1993?

On April 22, 1993, Pittway Corporation distributed (the “Distribution”) one share of Aptar, Inc. common stock for each share of Pittway common stock and each share of Pittway Class A stock outstanding. Pittway obtained rulings from the Internal Revenue Service that the Distribution qualified as a tax-free spin-off under Section 355 of the Internal Revenue code. Accordingly, the Distribution had the following Federal income tax consequences for Pittway stockholders:

  • No gain or loss was recognized for Federal income tax purposes upon receipt of Aptar common stock in the Distribution.
  • Stockholders were required to allocate the basis of their shares of Pittway held immediately prior to the Distribution among the shares of Pittway so held and the shares of Aptar received in the Distribution in proportion to their fair market values. Such values have been based on the respective averages of the high and low trading price of each stock on April 23, 1993, the first day of trading for Aptar common stock (with the value of Pittway’s Common and Class A shares determined by subtracting the value of Aptar stock from the value of Pittway stock on such date, since the Pittway shares did not trade ex-Distribution until April 26, 1993). Based on such values:
    1. The basis of a Pittway Common share should be allocated 51.32% to an Aptar share and 48.68% to a Pittway Common share.
    2. The basis of a Pittway Class A share should be allocated 51.16% to an Aptar share and 48.84% to a Pittway Class A share.
  • The holding period of the Aptar common stock distributed includes the holding period of the share of Pittway Common or Class A stock in respect of which such share of the Aptar common stock was distributed, provided that such share of Pittway stock was held as a capital asset on April 22, 1993.

The foregoing information does not purport to discuss all Federal income tax consequences that may apply to particular types of stockholders. You are urged to consult your own tax advisors regarding the particular Federal, foreign. state and local tax consequences of the receipt of Aptar common stock in the Distribution.
