Get specialized services for your publicly held company.
Your shareholders are a vital part of your company. You can manage shareholder related functions better with our specialized services. We’ll customize a program that meets shareholder needs and provide transfer agent services for your business.
Direct Registration Services (DRS)
Bring the advantages of book-entry shareholding to your registered shareholders. Direct registration is an efficient and secure way to let shares be owned, recorded, and transferred electronically. T+2 and dematerialization have eliminated physical stock certificates. DRS adds convenience and versatility for your shareholders.
Exchange Agent/Paying Agent
Make times of mergers and acquisitions a little simpler. We’ll work with your legal department to help prepare and mail letters of transmittal and other necessary documents. We can collect the old stock certificates and issue new book entry shares or cash proceeds according to the terms of the merger, keeping up with IRS reporting along the way. Escrow agent services are also available.
Cash Dividends, Stock Dividends, and Stock Splits
We easily process, mail, and report your cash dividends, stock dividends, and splits. Direct deposit and full or partial dividend reinvestment are valuable options for your shareholders.
Give your shareholders more convenient access to information through online services. Shareholders can view a summary of their account; scan their dividend payment or reinvestment history; examine certificate detail; obtain 1099 tax history; print forms; vote by proxy; and even change their address online.
