Successful corporate actions don’t just happen. They require intense planning, smart strategy, and attention to detail. At AST, we have experience and comprehensive services for a range of corporate actions, including the following:

  • Corporate actions resulting from a company’s decision to distribute cash and/or securities to its holders, including distributions and stock splits
  • Corporate actions that involve acting on the response or instructions from securityholders, including offers to purchase, issuer bids, plans of arrangements, subscriptions (rights, installment receipts, etc.), and odd lot buy/sell
  • Corporate actions that involve processing securities when received from holders, including redemptions (mandatory), retractions, exchanges (mandatory), conversions (optional)

By providing corporate actions services through our in-house team of specialists, we ensure greater efficiencies and cost savings.
