16. My shares are in DRS. What is DRS?
DRS stand for Direct Registration System. Direct Registration is the ownership of stock registered in your own name on the books of the Company, without taking possession of a printed stock certificate. Instead, your ownership is recorded and tracked as an accounting entry on the books of the Company. DRS is a system that electronically moves investors’ positions between brokers and transfer agents for issuers that offer direct registration. DRS eliminates the risk of loss or theft of your stock certificate and the potential cost and inconvenience of having to obtain a surety bond to replace a lost security. Registrar & Transfer Company will periodically send you an account statement showing how many shares are held by you in certificate and book-entry form and how many shares are held in the Company’s Dividend Reinvestment Plan, if you participate in the Plan. To transfer your shares to your brokerage account, provide your broker with:

  • The most recent copy of your statement;
  • CUSIP number for your stock , which is on your statement;
  • The Social Security Number on your account;
  • The Registrar & Transfer Company account number;
  • Registrar & Transfer Company’s DTC number, 7820;
  • The number of whole shares held in book-entry and/or dividend reinvestment that you wish to transfer to your brokerage account.
