Overview

AST has acted as an exchange agent for hundreds of acquisitions. As an exchange agency, we play a vital role in our clients’ strategic growth plans, and work closely with each client to customize a plan for communicating with their shareholders. Whether overseeing the surrender of company shares from acquired companies or managing issuance of shares from the acquirer, we ensure smooth, highly-efficient exchanges while managing all communications with shareholders.

At AST, our Exchange Agent Services extend beyond the scope of what is traditionally expected. We service client companies on an integrated platform offering expertise in:

  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Recapitalizations
  • Reverse Splits
  • Cash Elections
  • Redomestications

In addition to guaranteeing the highest levels of customer service and expert guidance, our proprietary technology platform offers unique individual barcoding and scanning capabilities, which assists in the tracking and processing of shareholder exchanges to expedite the transaction. Powered by this technology, we are able to accurately compute the number of shares to be issued as well as any cash dividends that have accumulated on the unexchanged shares years after the initial exchange. Plus, because we own 100% of the systems and software used to provide these services, we are able to support you with flexible, fast, and efficient processing.
