How can I obtain a new stock certificate if I am a registered shareholder and am unable to locate my original certificate?

If you are a registered shareholder and need to replace your stock certificate, you will need to contact our transfer agent, Computershare. The cost to replace a stock certificate is $80.00, plus 3% of the market value of the stock. These costs are required by Computershare because your stock certificate is a legal document that certifies your ownership of the number of share on the certificate, and Computershare uses this fee to purchase surety insurance on the certificate to protect itself from liability in the event that someone else presents the certificate and contests the ownership of the shares.
