Piecemeal Realizations and Distributions

Partnership dissolutions may take a substantial number of days even months) so it is unlikely that all cash generated will be simultaneous, unless the business is sold off as a going concern, i.e. a single unit.

The partners may not be willing to wait for such long durations for the process to be complete before receiving their repayments of capital.
