EASi Makes CEP Honor Roll with Ten Certified Equity Professionals
Commitment to Educate and Hire Industry Experts Earns Distinction

Pleasanton, CA – September 12, 2011 –Equity Administration Solutions, Inc. (EASi), the broker-independent SaaS company with the leading stock plan management solution, today announced it has been inducted into the Certified Equity Professional Institute (CEPI) Honor Roll.

To achieve this distinction a company must employ at least ten CEPs. Not only has EASi earned this prestigious title, but 20% of EASi’s employees have completed the CEP program while another 25% are currently pursuing this designation.

“We’re very proud to be among companies like UBS, Charles Schwab and Bank of America Merrill Lynch that share our ranking but have much larger equity compensation teams,” said Denise Vitale, EASi’s Vice President of Product Development who conducts CEP training and review sessions with EASi employees. “Our ratio of CEPs to total employees is probably among the highest in the industry and that’s by design,” says Vitale. “We have CEPs in every functional area of the company, with a concentration in Customer Support, because we know how much our clients depend on our expertise and what’s at stake if mistakes get made.”

Becoming a CEP is a long, rigorous process that requires candidates to pass exams in the core disciplines of equity compensation: Accounting; Equity Plan Design, Analysis and Administration; Corporate and Securities Law; and Taxation. As Emily Cervino, CEP, of the CEPI notes, “The CEP is the only recognized mark of expertise in the highly complex, multi-disciplinary field of equity compensation. For a company of EASi’s size, having 10 CEP’s is a very significant accomplishment. It shows a clear commitment to providing industry education to their people, which ultimately benefits their customers.” The CEP program is offered through the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University.
