BNY Mellon, the global leader in investment management and investment servicing, announced today that it has completed the previously announced sale of its Shareowner Services business to Computershare.
Computershare is a global provider of transfer agency, share registration, employee equity plans, proxy solicitation, stake holder communications, and other diversified financial and governance services.
The transaction resulted in a modest after-tax loss to be reflected in BNY Mellon's results for the fourth quarter of 2011 due to the impact of non-deductible goodwill associated with the business. The transaction further enhances BNY Mellon's strong capital ratios, generating more than $200 million in additional capital and adding approximately 20 basis points to BNY Mellon's Basel III Tier 1 common equity ratio.
