How is Cedar Fair different from a corporation?

Cedar Fair is structured as a Master Limited Partnership (MLP), as opposed to a corporation. MLP's are businesses that are taxed at the unitholder level and generally not subject to federal or state income tax. Annual income, gains, losses, deductions or credits of the MLP pass through to its unitholders, and are then allocated to each unitholder based on the number of units held and their acquisition date. This information is presented annually to the unitholder on a Schedule K-1.

Why is the Company structured as a partnership versus a corporation?

The MLP structure is an attractive business form for Cedar Fair because it allows the Partnership to pay out the majority of its earnings to its owners without first paying significant federal and state taxes at the entity level, avoiding what is known in the corporate form as double taxation of earnings. Beginning in 1998, certain eligible partnerships are required to pay a 3.5% excise tax on its gross income in order to retain its MLP status.
