    Good day friends,
    I need some high level guidance with the following situation

    A private company C Corp was purchased by a PE backed firm.
    The PE firm fund and management form the following companies

    New LLC company 1, it will serve as platform for governance
    New LLC company 1 a new company holding LLC 2
    New company holding LLC 2 acquires 100% of outstanding equity of C Corp (original company purchased)
    New Company holding LLC 2 form NEW company operating LLC 3 (this company will transfer day to day business and be the operating company)

    Under this setup i need some guidance on setup of legal entities and inital accounting transaction related to this.

    Thanks for guidance.

    The purchasing companies will record an “Investment in sub” and IF the purchased subs issue stock, then the sub records the stock. You should get an Advanced Accounting textbook which covers this kind of stuff.
