Mergers & Acquisitions

Paying Agent

Use our secure and intuitive online FastTrack portal to collect payment and tax information from securityholders, as well as any transaction documents requiring their signature pre or post-closing.

Why Wilmington Trust

Enhance the payment and document collection process through FastTrack

An Efficient Process

Securityholders enter their payment instructions directly through the FastTrack portal to reduce risk of error and enhance security. Securityholders can also sign any transaction related documents, such as joinders or consents in addition to letters of transmittal, simultaneously through the portal.

Tax Reporting

The Paying Agent can provide 1099-B, 1099-INT, 1099-DIV, 1099-NEC and 8288 reporting, as required. 

A Sustainable Option

We not only process payments to securityholders, warrantholders and non-employee optionholders, but we can also process all transaction expenses, including debt pay-offs, at closing. This means the buyer only has to send one wire to the paying account at closing. We’ll take care of the rest.

Anytime Access

We maintain all payment instructions and allow securityholders to update their payment instructions directly through FastTrack anytime prior to post-closing distributions.
