CALGARY, Oct. 25, 2016 /CNW/ - Solium Capital Inc. ("Solium") (TSX: SUM), the leading global provider of software-as-a-service for equity administration, financial reporting and compliance, today announced that it has launched Shareworks™ Trading Schedules ("Trading Schedules") a fully automated tool aimed at helping plan administrators of U.S. listed companies consolidate and manage 10b5-1 plans across the company's entire employee base in one comprehensive view. Solium launched this new functionality at the 24th Annual National Association of Stock Plan Professionals (NASPP) Conference.
Shareworks™ Trading Schedules is designed to streamline plan management while ensuring strong compliance with SEC equity trading regulations, as plan administrators can manage the entire process online from the time of grant through to Edgar filings. By automating trading schedules, it serves to reduce the financial burden caused by corporate blackout periods and eliminates participant out of pocket cash payments for taxes owing on disposition of equity. Plan participants will be able to access their trading schedules in real-time, giving them greater control and increased visibility around their equity plans.
"Solium is the first-to-market with an automated broad based 10b5-1 platform that ties into the corporate issuer's administration portal and serves all of its employees," said Jim Wulforst, President of Solium USA. "Our key differentiator is that we address the full life cycle of employee awards. Trading Schedules is a powerful enhancement to Shareworks™ and strengthens our competitive position in the market."
The Trading Schedules tool enables administrators to streamline the plan implementation process by providing them with all necessary participant data points on one integrated platform. This ease of implementation allows plan administrators to rapidly and cost-effectively scale equity programs across their organization's entire employee base.
