UBS Enhances Partial Administration Offering with EASi for Performancebased Plans

 

Participant Portal Enhancement Meets Growing Demand for Performance Equity

 

 

UBS Wealth Management Americas and independent stock plan software technology company Equity Administration Solutions, Inc. (EASi) today announced they have enhanced their partial administration offering to support performance awards and performance stock units via the UBS One Source participant website. Launched in December 2011, the enhancements allow participants using UBS One Source to easily view their performancebased awards, make tax elections for upcoming vestings and transact.

“Adding performance award functionality enables us to better serve partial administration clients who grant employees performance‐based equity,” said Michael Barry, Executive Director and Head of CEFS Sales and Service at UBS. “The continued enhancement of both our full and partial administration platform and services also reinforces our commitment to delivering first‐class equity compensation plan services and support Fortune 1000 companies and their participants across the globe.”

UBS already offers stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock awards and employee stock purchase plans through its partial administration offering with EASi. The announced enhancements to UBS’s partial administration offering provide UBS with the ability to support a growing number of issuers who include performance awards as part of their equity mix.

“With many companies looking for ways to cost effectively self‐administer their plans, the ability to offer a partially outsourced solution for stock plan administration has great appeal,” explained Don Gillotti, Senior Vice President of Sales at EASi. “The connection to UBS gives customers the convenience of using the UBS One Source website and guidance from Financial Advisors in combination with the EASi platform to streamline the administration and accounting for performance awards.”
