Direct Registration System
The Direct Registration System (DRS) is an electronic paperless system managed by our transfer agent. This allows investors to move book-entry shares electronically from street name to the registered owner's name on the books of the corporation, or from the registered owner's name to street name.
DRS eliminates the physical movement of paper stock certificates at the time of sale or transfer of ownership. The advantage: DRS/Profile shares are in book-entry form, minimizing expenses related to overall stock certificate issuance (specifically the cost of physical certificates, insurance and processing).
Paper stock certificates are valuable documents and must be protected. An alternative to paper certificates is a book-entry account direct registration account at the transfer agent. This eliminates the risks associated with holding paper certificates. Book-entry is a safe, free and convenient way to manage your ownership of stock.
Transfer requirements are very specific. Shareholders should follow all stock transfer instructions carefully and completely and keep a copy of all forms and correspondence.
Note: When mailing paper stock certificates use only registered mail and request a return receipt.
Submitted documents are kept as a permanent record of transfers. If you are enclosing stock certificates, they should be insured for 2% of their market value, as this is the potential replacement cost if the certificates get lost.
Transfer requirements are listed on the Equniti (EQ) website. Learn more
Medallion Signature Guarantee
As part of the stock transfer process, you may be required to obtain a Medallion Signature Guarantee on your stock transfer form from an institution that belongs to the Medallion Stamp Program.
The Medallion program ensures that individual(s) signing a stock transfer form is/are in fact the registered owner(s) or authorized representative.
Any U.S. financial institution that belongs to the Medallion Stamp Program may provide medallion signature guarantees (institutions include banks, credit unions, savings and loans and U.S. brokerages).
Our transfer agent will reject requests submitted without proper certifications and paperwork. Please note that a Notary Public certification is not acceptable for this purpose.
