ClearTrust to Host Educational Webinar for Issuers October 1: Leveraging Unclaimed Property Obligations to Strengthen Investor Relations

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - September 21, 2015) - ClearTrust, LLC, a leading stock transfer agent serving growth companies and community banks, is pleased to announce it will host an educational webinar for issuers about state unclaimed property compliance on October 1.

Lemons to Lemonade: Leveraging Unclaimed Property Obligations to Strengthen Investor Relations will benefit public and private companies on several levels. The webinar is designed to be practical and transparent, informing issuers of their unclaimed property reporting and escheatment obligations, while offering streamlined, holistic solutions for maintaining compliance. The webinar will also feature innovative strategies for leveraging these obligations to bolster stakeholder confidence and strengthen investor ties.

"There are 54 separate sets of unclaimed property reporting laws issuers must comply with in the States and US territories. We've found that many issuers are not aware of their obligations or the mounting risks associated with noncompliance," commented Kara Kennedy, Executive Director of ClearTrust. "We want to educate small companies and community banks about unclaimed property to help mitigate risks, and also equip them with useful tools to leverage these processes as a means to build stronger shareholder relationships. The result is an educational opportunity for issuers that is uniquely 'ClearTrust': proactive in perspective, creative in design, and seamless in execution."

The webinar will feature a panel of industry experts, including Tracy Olsen of Xerox, Johan Boakes of Global Shareholder Services, Anthony Vitellozzi of Laurel Hill Advisory Services, and Kara Kennedy of ClearTrust.

The one-hour webinar is scheduled to take place Thursday, October 1 at 2:00 PM EDT. It will be attended by officers and directors of public and private issuers and community banks.
