Calamos Investments LLC (“Calamos Investments”) is owned (a) 22.2% by Calamos Asset Management, Inc. (“CAM”), and (b) 77.8% by Calamos Partners LLC and John P. Calamos, Sr. (the “Calamos Interests”). As of September 30, 2016, CAM holds two groups of assets: (1) CAM’s 22.2% ownership interest in Calamos Investments and (2) primarily cash and cash equivalents, investment securities, income tax receivables, net deferred tax assets, and a loan receivable from Calamos Investments. CAM presents the entire operations of Calamos Investments with its own in the consolidated financial statements. Calamos Interests’ 77.8% ownership in Calamos Investments is presented as a non-controlling interest in the consolidated financial statements.
CAM’s certificate of incorporation provides that ownership in Calamos Investments is exchangeable into Class A shares of CAM on a fair value basis rather than a one-to-one basis, as previously structured. As a result, the reported market capitalization of CAM only reflects CAM’s 22.2% interest in Calamos Investments, rather than the full value of Calamos Investments.
