Overview

At AST, we recognize the responsibility of interacting with our clients' securityholders and the need for flawless execution, high-quality customer service, and meticulous recordkeeping. As a paying agency, we serve as the critical link between our clients and target company securityholders during key moments, including the distribution of an acquisition or a leveraged buyout’s cash proceeds. Our team of professionals will develop a strategy to support the specific needs of your transaction.

Our paying agent service includes the following:

  • Structure and processing of required documentation
  • Skilled professionals supported by advanced technology


Equally important, our work continues long after the initial disbursement. Our team will be at your side until all shares have been exchanged. Because we understand the inconvenience and nuisance of dealing with unexchanged securityholders, we shield our clients from becoming entangled in the process, allowing them to focus on other priorities, like continued business growth.
