13. Common and Preferred Stock:

Common Stock

After consummation of the Merger Transaction, The Hillman Companies, Inc. has one class of common stock. All outstanding shares of The Hillman Companies, Inc. common stock are owned by Holdco. The management shareholders of Holdco do not have the ability to put their shares back to Holdco.

Under the terms of the Predecessor Stockholders Agreement for the Predecessor Holdco common stock, management shareholders had the ability to put their shares back to Predecessor Holdco under certain conditions, including death or disability. ASC 480-10-S99 requires shares to be classified outside of permanent equity if they can be redeemed and the redemption is not solely within control of the issuer. Further, if it is determined that redemption of the shares is probable, the shares are marked to fair value at each balance sheet date with the change in fair value recorded in additional paid-in capital. The Predecessor Company determined that redemption of the shares was probable as they could be put back to Predecessor Holdco upon death or disability. Accordingly, the 161.2 shares of common stock held by management as of December 31, 2013 were recorded outside permanent equity. These shares were adjusted to the fair value of $16,975 as of December 31, 2013.

Preferred Stock

The Hillman Companies has one class of preferred stock, with 5,000 shares authorized and none issued or outstanding as of December 31, 2014 or 2013.
