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.

COMPLIANCE

Stay compliant

Automated checks

Carta has built-in checks to ensure compliance when issuing equity. Our checks include Rule 701, Rule 144, and the ISO $100K limit.

Get audit-defensible 409As

With your cap table already on Carta, you can save time and money getting 409A valuations, whether you need them annually or quarterly. Our team of life sciences experts has experience with tranched financings, unique paths to going public, and studies on clinical success rates. We are the leader in 409A valuations and are regularly audited by the “Big 4” accounting firms.




EQUITY REPORTING

Get the reports you need

Auditor-ready expense accounting

With your cap table on Carta, you can pull ASC 718 reports any time. The reports are auditor-ready and include all formulas.

Prep for your next round

Carta gives you a better understanding of how fundraising will impact dilution and payouts. Create round-modeling worksheets, pro-forma cap tables, and detailed waterfall payouts right in our platform.

SEC-REGISTERED TRANSFER AGENT
