Empire Stock Transfer Added To OTC Markets’ Transfer Agent Verified Shares Program
Yesterday, OTC Markets Group announced that Empire Stock Transfer Inc. has joined OTC Markets’ Transfer Agent Verified Shares Program. This latest addition to OTC Markets’ portfolio of leading transfer agents advances their mission to improve the availability and accuracy of share data for OTCQX®, OTCQB® and Pink® securities.
OTC Markets Group launched the Transfer Agent Verified Shares Program initiative with the goal of providing investors current and reliable share data on OTCQX, OTCQB and Pink securities. The program enables stock transfer agents to report their clients’ share data, including authorized and outstanding shares, to OTC Markets Group on a regular basis via a secure, electronic file transfer.
Share data provided by transfer agents is displayed on http://www.otcmarkets.com alongside a “Verified” logo, indicating the information is reliable and trustworthy. This data is also disseminated through OTC Markets Group’s market data feeds to investors and broker-dealers.
Currently, approximately 64% of US and Canadian companies trading on our OTCQX and OTCQB markets are represented by 16 participating transfer agents.
“We are delighted to include Empire Stock Transfer as a participant in our Transfer Agent Verified Shares Program,” said Liz Heese, Executive Vice President of Issuer and Information Services at OTC Markets Group. “Reliable share information helps public companies build credibility with investors. By partnering with transfer agents like Empire Stock Transfer and software providers such as Figtree Consulting, Inc., publisher of StockTrack, to provide verified data for their clients, we continue to engage other market participants to create better informed and more efficient financial markets.”
“We understand that timely and accurate information is critical to investment decision-making,” said Patrick Mokros, President, Empire Stock Transfer Inc. “Participation in the Transfer Agent Verified Shares Program will provide another avenue by which we disseminate current information for the benefit of our clients, their shareholders, the investing community, and the public.”
