Corporate Creations acquisition
makes Computershare one of the largest registered
agents in the U.S.
NEW YORK and NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla., March 2, 2020 – Computershare Limited (ASX:CPU) announced today that the company has completed its acquisition of the business and assets of Corporate Creations Enterprises LLC ("Corporate Creations"), a trusted provider of registered agent and related filing services to more than 14,000 public and private companies.
The acquisition accelerates Computershare's commitment to the registered agent market, and further enhances our ability to alleviate the administrative burden on organizations' legal and compliance departments, reducing risk and improving ease of access to data and documents in the face of an increasingly complex multi-state U.S. regulatory environment.
Corporate Creations', registered agent expertise, accomplished team, extensive servicing capabilities, and nearly 30 years of experience – combined with Computershare's global scale and technology investment – will expand Computershare's ability to offer an intuitive, scalable and transparent suite of legal entity compliance services to their extensive portfolio of public and private clients around the world.
"We've heard loud and clear from our issuer clients that they want a more compelling entity compliance offering than what is in the market today. This is an important step forward in disrupting the status quo and delivering on our mission of making entity compliance easier and more efficient," said Andrew Moore, president of Governance Services at Computershare.
"We are excited to bring Corporate Creations' capabilities, expertise and reach to the Computershare group and to our clients around the globe – and to welcome the Corporate Creations team into the Computershare family."
