Redeemable Class B Units  



The Operating Company issued Class B units as consideration for its recent business acquisitions, as well as in form of equity-based compensation to certain of the Operating Company's executive employees. The Operating Company's Class B units are non-voting and contained a put right whereby, at any time after the third anniversary of February 20, 2018 (in each case prior to an effective IPO or Capital Event), each of the holders of Class B units had the right to require that the Operating Company purchase all, but not less than all, of its Class B units at an aggregate price equal to the fair market value of the Class B units as of the date of the put notice (as defined), in the form of a cash payment. The Class B units did not contain any mandatory redemption provisions.


The Operating Company classified the Class B units outside of members' deficit as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 as the units contained contingent redemption features that were not solely within the Operating Company's control. The initial carrying value of the amount classified in temporary equity for the Class B units issued as consideration for business acquisitions was based on the issuance date fair value of the redeemable Class B units, net of issuance costs. See "Note 13 – Equity-Based Compensation" for further discussion of the accounting for Class B units issued as equity-based compensation.


As of March 31, 2019, the Operating Company determined that the Class B units were not probable of becoming redeemable as management believed the IPO to be probable to occur before the third anniversary of the LLC Agreement; accordingly, the carrying value of the Class B units was not adjusted. As discussed in "Note 16—Subsequent Events," Greenlane completed its IPO of 6,000,000 shares of Class A common stock at a public offering price of $17.00 per share on April 23, 2019 and became the sole manager of the Operating Company. As part of the Transactions, the Class B units were converted to Common Units of the Operating Company and the put right was eliminated.
