Direct Registration System
The Direct Registration System (DRS) is a method of recording shares of stock in book-entry form. Book-entry means the Company's transfer agent (American Stock Transfer & Trust Company) maintains your shares on your behalf without the need for physical share certificates. Shares held in uncertificated book-entry form have the same rights and privileges as shares held in certificate form.
Holding shares in book-entry form through DRS has the following benefits: a. It helps reduce the risks and costs associated with storing share certificate(s) and replacing lost or stolen certificate(s). b. It enables electronic share transactions between your broker/dealer and the Company's transfer agent. c. It reduces the overall administrative costs to the Company and its shareholders.
You may choose to deposit other AFG share certificates into book-entry form for safekeeping at any time. Simply return your certificates and a letter of instruction to the Company's Transfer Agent either by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested and insured. We recommend that you do not endorse your certificates. Since the method of delivery of all documents and certificates is at your risk, we strongly recommend that you insure your package for two percent (2%) of the current market value of the shares, which is the cost of a bond to have your certificates replaced if they are lost or stolen. A DRS Transaction Advice will be mailed to you upon receipt and processing of your certificates.
You may request a share certificate for all or a portion of your DRS book-entry shares of AFG at any time. To request a certificate, you should contact the Company's transfer agent as detailed below. A certificate will be mailed to you.
You may elect to deposit your shares in AFG's dividend reinvestment plan and then sell the shares through the plan. To do so, please write to the Company's Transfer Agent and indicate that you would like to move your shares from DRS and sell them through the plan. If you wish to transfer your shares to your brokerage account, whether or not you plan to sell your shares, contact your broker and provide him or her with your DRS account information (which appears on the Transaction Advice you will receive when you become a participant in DRS). Your broker will then electronically initiate the transfer of your book-entry shares based on your instructions.
You may transfer shares to a new owner by contacting the Transfer Agent. Your instruction must include a Medallion Signature Guarantee. More detailed instructions on transfer requirements are available at the link below: http://www.amstock.com/shareholder/sh_transfinst.asp
If you hold your shares in DRS, you have the same choices as to how to receive your dividends as a shareholder who holds a certificate. Please contact the Transfer Agent if you have questions about the payment of dividends.
You will not be charged by AFG or its transfer agent for holding your shares of AFG common stock through DRS. You should contact your brokerage firm to determine its fees if you transfer your shares to or sell your shares through your brokerage account.
A Medallion Signature Guarantee is a statement (stamp and signature) given by a financial institution such as a commercial bank, credit union, brokerage firm, etc., that is a member of the Securities Transfer Association Medallion Program (STAMP), New York Stock Exchange Program or Stock Exchange Medallion Program (SEMP, MSP). The Medallion Program is not a notarization. To obtain a Medallion Signature Guarantee, please visit a financial institution that participates in the Medallion Program.
