Trends in private M&A 

There is a growing trend in the private M&A market where there is no requirement for a formal Depositary Agent or a submission of letters of transmittal that is typical for Computershare in our appointment as depositary. However, in these types of circumstances or events where companies are acquiring privately held issuers there are often multiple payments to be processed and issued to the members or equity partners.

Specialized Paying Agent services can relieve law firms and private companies of the burden of managing the cheque and wire issuances, and bank account payment reconciliations that typically arise from private transactions with high volume payments.

If you have any questions about this or any other corporate actions and events, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Computershare Canada Sales Team.
