Successful corporate actions don’t just happen. Whether it’s a merger, reorganization or exchange, these events require intense planning, smart strategy and attention to detail. At AST, whether addressing investor inquiries, facilitating payment disbursements, managing share exchanges, or delivering post-event support, we have the experience and comprehensive services to drive your company forward. By providing corporate actions services through our in-house team of specialists, we ensure greater efficiencies and cost savings.


Exchange Agent Services

We work with each client to develop a customized exchange program and leverage our proprietary technology platform to ensure meticulous recordkeeping and access to historical data for post-acquisition stock reconciliations.

Paying Agent Services

We offer highly automated solutions that guarantee efficiency and maximize shareholder convenience. Our work continues until all shares have been exchanged so that you can focus on higher priorities.

Depository Agent Services

We advise our clients during the planning and execution phases of offers, developing a technology-based strategy designed to yield a high participation rate and promote a successful transaction.

Escrow Agent Services

We act as a neutral third party for your most critical transactions. From corporate action proceeds to escrow account deposits, our industry-leading services help maximize your returns and establish a solution to meet your specific needs.

Investor Services

AST is focused on shareholder experience and education. If you have received proceeds from a sale or transaction, you may want to learn more about financial health and investment services.

Our Difference


We understand that attention to detail is critical to every successful corporate action, and at AST, no detail is too small. Through our consultative approach, we provide detailed insight into each client’s processes and priorities and use that information to develop a unique solution. Utilizing industry-leading tools – including our proprietary technology applications, team of seasoned professionals and commitment to customer service – we drive successful outcomes for our clients, helping them move their companies onto the next stage.



Technology drives every AST solution, so customers can rely on the highest levels of data security and the most efficient and dynamic approach to managing their business. With a proprietary technology platform and front-end web interfaces, our clients always have access to and control over their data. By integrating technology into our operations, AST teams spend more time focusing on improving levels of service, including more personalized interactions with your shareholders.

"AST was very open; if we didn’t know something, we asked questions, and there was a lot of education going on during implementation. It went really smoothly, and we gained a lot from their willingness to share not only how they do it, but how competitors do things."
