The article informs that Melbourne based Computershare Ltd., the world's largest provider of global shareholder and employee management systems, has been on a merger-and-acquisition tear for the last two years, most recently acquiring EquiServe, one of America's largest transfer agents. Computershare is responsible for administration duties of more than 70 million shareholder accounts for 15,000 companies across 12 countries. Earlier this year, it was hired as the transfer agent for McDonald's Corp. Late last year, Computershare, which is publicly traded on the Australian Stock Exchange, completed a $318 million traditional private placement via the Royal Bank of Scotland, which acted as the agent.
