CALGARY, Oct. 27, 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 through its "Wish-for-a-Wish" initiative during the 24th Annual National Association of Stock Plan Professionals (NASPP) Conference, it raised $8,900 for Make-A-Wish® Texas Gulf Coast & Louisiana ("Make-A-Wish").
Throughout the conference, Solium asked attendees: "What do you wish your equity compensation platform could do for you?" Solium 'collected' wishes from attendees and donated up to $100 per wish. Wishes were tallied as they came in and the Company presented a live donation tracker on solium.com/makeawish.
"Partnering with The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a phenomenal opportunity that allows Solium to donate to a great cause," said Cameron Hall, EVP, Canadian Client Services and Head of Global Marketing. "Solium is in the business of granting wishes to those that work in equity compensation management. We are always looking for innovative ways to improve work processes while driving customer engagement. For this year's NASPP conference we wanted to make wishes come true – for our clients, and in our community."
"We were overwhelmed with the number of clients that supported us as we tackled this important initiative," said Lance Titchkosky, SVP, Technology. "As a result of granting equity wishes to our customers, our team continues to develop innovative functionality for Shareworks that is presently not found on any other platform. From our perspective, this campaign was successful and continues to bring us closer to our goal of becoming the industry leading global plan administration platform."
The 24th Annual National Association for Stock Plan Professionals (NASPP) Conference and Exhibition ran from October 24-27 in Houston Texas.
"We are incredibly excited and grateful that Solium has decided to donate to our organization," said Michelle Morrison, Development Coordinator, Make-A-Wish Texas Gulf Coast & Louisiana. "This is such an innovative way to fundraise at a very well-regarded event. Through Solium's support and heartfelt efforts, we are able to fulfill the hopes and dreams of a very special child."
