Private companies have the same needs for well-managed records, participant correspondence, and compliance as publicly held corporations. Yet, many private companies underestimate the complexities of these functions and do not dedicate adequate resources to ensuring proper management. This can cost the company more in the long run, especially if the company decides to go public. AST offers highly scalable private company service options to help companies manage these important functions. Whether a business is a privately held entity or a post-IPO corporation, AST can customize the right strategy.
