A Bermuda LLC is a hybrid of an offshore corporation (Bermuda Exempted Company) with a partnership into a unique corporate entity.  A LLC is an offshore corporation offering limited liability to its members (shareholders).  However, instead of corporate shares, a Bermuda LLC has members where each one has an interest in a capital account just like partners in a partnership.  The Bermuda LLC Act allows the freedom to establish flexible operational terms and management, as well as, the timing and amount of profits distribution amongst its members.
