EQUITY MANAGEMENT FOR PUBLIC COMPANIES
We’re changing how equity is managed
Carta began serving public companies in 2017 and acquired Philadelphia Stock Transfer in early 2018. As an SEC-registered transfer agent, Carta serves both fast-growing companies going through the IPO process and public companies transitioning from their current equity management solution to Carta. Managing equity can be time consuming, complicated, and expensive. At Carta, we simplify the process.
Carta has built-in checks to ensure compliance when issuing equity. Our checks include Rule 701, Rule 144, and the ISO $100K limit.
