OTC Markets Adds Five Transfer Agents To Their Transfer Agent Verified Shares Program
This week, OTC Markets Group announced that five (5) additional transfer agents have joined OTC Markets’ Transfer Agent Verified Shares Program.
Action Stock Transfer, Manhattan Transfer Registrar Co., Mountain Share Transfer, Pacific Stock Transfer, and Securities Transfer Corporation are now included among a distinguished roster of transfer agents that are working with OTC Markets Group to create better informed and more efficient financial markets.
91% of US companies trading on the OTCQX and OTCQB markets are represented by the 25 transfer agents participating in the Transfer Agent Verified Shares Program.
Effective January 1, 2019, OTC Markets Group plans to require all US companies trading on the OTCQX and OTCQB Markets to provide verified share data through a transfer agent who participates in the Transfer Agent Verified Share Program.
OTC Markets Group launched the Transfer Agent Verified Shares Program in order to provide investors with current and reliable share data on OTCQX and OTCQB securities. The program enables eligible 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 by Transfer Agent” logo, indicating the information is reliable and trustworthy. This data is also disseminated through OTC Markets Group’s market data feeds and is widely available to investors and broker dealers.
“The recent additions of Action, Manhattan, Mountain Share, Pacific and Securities Transfer Corporation further expand the availability of key data in OTCQX and OTCQB securities,” said Liz Heese, Executive Vice President of Issuer and Information Services at OTC Markets Group. “We are delighted to welcome this latest group of providers to our growing portfolio of transfer agents who have qualified to take part in the Transfer Agent Verified Shares Program.”
