Q: What is direct registration ownership?

Q: What are the advantages of direct registration?

Shares in direct registration form can be electronically transferred without the need to deliver a physical certificate. Direct registration shares cannot be lost thus avoiding the significant cost and effort involved in replacing lost certificates.

A: You will receive an account statement on an annual basis and anytime there is activity in your account. This statement is your evidence of ownership of the shares instead of a physical certificate.
Q: How do I move my shares between my broker account and direct registration?
A: Instruct your broker to initiate the share movement. Provide your broker with the required information including your exact account registration (full name and address as it appears on the statement), your tax identification number, the common stock CUSIP number and the number of shares you want to move. Your most recent account statement will contain most of this information and may be required by your broker. You will receive a statement from Computershare Trust Company N.A. when the transaction is completed.

A: No, stockholders are not charged any fees to own their shares in direct registration.
