When your company declares a dividend, it sends a strong signal about its solid performance and financial well-being. And when you provide shareholders with easy options for reinvestment, you can solidify their investment in your company and strengthen their sense of loyalty.

EQ works closely with companies to create direct stock purchase plans and dividend reinvestment strategies that meet their unique needs. Our team will assist throughout the planning and seamlessly manage the entire process. We help to ensure timely and accurate interactions with your shareholders, efficient transaction processing, compliance with all reporting requirements and, equally important, we continually assess your strategy to identify opportunities for improvement.

Our Services


Shareholders affirm their confidence in your company by applying their dividends, or optional cash contributions, toward the purchase of additional stock. They want the process to be easy to understand, easy to use, and easy to complete. This means using a user-friendly interface and eliminating unnecessary paperwork. Corporations expect the process to include highly professional interactions, accurate records management, and compliance with applicable regulatory and reporting mandates.

EQ exceeds these expectations and is the preferred dividend disbursement and dividend reinvestment plan (DRIP) provider for thousands of U.S. corporations. Integral to our success is our commitment to personalized service, innovative solutions and investment in technology.
