Pre-Launch

PROGRAM PARAMETERS CONFIGURED

We configure the platform to execute the tender offer based on your specific requirements:

  • Shareholder eligibility
  • Maximum selling amounts
  • Timing
  • Available documents and disclosures
TESTING & FEEDBACK

Next, we set up a testing environment and work with your legal team to ensure everything looks correct and all necessary documents are properly uploaded.

PARTICIPANT EDUCATION

To ensure maximum participation, we can provide a live demo or host a financial education session with a Morgan Stanley representative to help your employees understand how the tender offer may impact them financially.

Program launch

Once the tender offer is live, shareholders will have 20 business days to review the offer, sell their shares and fill out all of the necessary paperwork.

AN EASY WORKFLOW FOR THEM

Shareholders can view their current holdings, exercise cost and estimated gross proceeds. Platform notifications guide them through what they need to do to complete a sell order.

Shareholders will also have access to a dedicated support team should they have questions or need assistance.

Maximum Control and Transparency for You

Plan Administrators can access real-time reporting in order to track all participant activity.

AN EASY WORKFLOW FOR THEM

The Shareworks by Morgan Stanley team supports you throughout the tender offer with periodic check-in calls or program updates as frequently as you need.

Funds are dispersed to selling shareholders via automated clearing house (ACH), wire, or check.

Your tax and legal teams receive all executed documentation and a breakdown of proceeds, fees and withholdings.

Best of all - your cap table will be fully updated!
