DWAC/Fast Eligibility Approval from DTC
AdvanceTC shareholders will benefit as a result of the DWAC/FAST approval as the time required for stock deposits and withdrawals into brokerage accounts reduces from weeks to days, eliminating the inherent risks and costs associated with the loss and replacement of physical stock certificates. An additional benefit is that companies which are approved for DWAC/FAST electronic transfers often experience higher liquidity in their stock given the additional accessibility and availability of shares for trading.
DTC's Deposit and Withdrawal at Custodian ("DWAC") service provides participants with the ability to make electronic book-entry deposits and withdrawals of eligible securities into and out of their DTC book-entry accounts using a Fast Automated Securities Transfer service ("FAST") transfer agent as the distribution point. DWAC allows participants to instruct DTC regarding deposit and withdrawal transactions being made directly via a FAST transfer agent. The FAST system eliminates the movement of physical securities certificates for transfers of securities registered in the name of DTC's nominee, Cede & Co, on the transfer agent's books. DTC and its FAST transfer agents reconcile the results of participants' deposit and withdrawal activities electronically on a daily basis.
