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.
EQUITY PLAN MANAGEMENT
Modern equity management
Manage all equity transactions automatically with Carta, including stock splits. Model your IPO with our scenario modeling tool.
Intuitive ESPP experience
Carta can administer your company’s Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP). We support basic and complex ESPP construction with multiple and overlapping offerings. When you run your ESPP on Carta, it only takes a few minutes for shareholders to log in, enroll in equity plans, and transact.
Equity plan management
We manage blackout periods for employees and officers, Correctly code employees, and help with Rule 144 compliance. We also keep your executives in safe harbor with the SEC with automated 10b5-1 plans.
SEC-REGISTERED TRANSFER AGENT
Trusted transfer agent services
As a publicly-traded company, you need an SEC-registered transfer agent. Our offering includes annual meeting support, proxy services, and secure, online, 24/7 access to stockholder information and reports. Carta offers Transfer Agent and Brokerage services to equity plans, but can support external service partners if desired.
