About Continental

Continental Was Founded In 1964 On A Specific Vision


56 years ago, Continental was founded on a specific vision:

To fully support emerging and midsize companies with superior client responsiveness and uniquely tailored business solutions. In the decades that have passed, we have never wavered in pursuit of this vision.


As we were in the beginning, we remain an independent, privately held corporation. And we have no intention of changing. This means that we are committed to partnering with you for the long haul.

Along with our staff of seasoned professionals, this foundation is what allows us to respond quickly and nimbly to our customers, and to design and execute flawlessly on suites of services we adapt to each client.

It is what makes us a leader in the industry and explains in part why we have handled more than 25% of all US IPOs brought to market in the past two years. In the past several years, we have had record year over record year which is a testament to our refusal to ever settle for the status quo.

It is what inspires our motto: Power of stability. Spirit of agility.


We provide transfer agent services to 1,250 transfer agent customers and cross-border agent services to 100 global issuers. Continental has earned the position of the premier Stock Transfer Agent in North America several years in a row. In addition, we have been recognized as the leader for client value for over a decade.

As proud as we are of our history, we are even more proud of the fact that we satisfy our customers time and again, no matter how challenging their needs may be.

That comes to more than 2 million shareholders of record worldwide. Although we are the fourth largest agent in the United States, we serve our clients and their shareholders in ways mega transfer agents cannot: with personal attention from senior staff, flexible offerings, innovative technology, exceptional execution and an unmatched value.

 Many thanks to the entire Proxy Services team at Continental. Your professionalism and customer support was remarkable throughout this very difficult time.

 Have a good weekend [Ana], and just to note we appreciate all of your support and consistently great service through these times – very fortunate to work with you.

 Just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the FANTASTIC job Erika did all last week in assisting me with retrieval of my stock certificate. She followed up on every email/phone call to ensure my certificate was in my possession. Even taking the time to inquire about my well being during this pandemic crisis. Job well done!!! She was AWESOME. 

Gregory Sewell
Shareholder, Waitr Holdings, Inc.

 Thank you for all the great work CST has done for us the last few years. And especially Steve. He has done an AMAZING job on all of the stuff we’ve dropped in his lap, and some of it has been very difficult and complex to work through. I never have to worry about getting the right answers and quick results when it comes to Steve. And he goes above and beyond every time. 

Ryan Abney
SAExploration Holdings, Inc.
Vice President of Finance

 Just wanted to say thank you for helping with all of this. We pride ourselves as a company on our relentless commitment to providing excellent customer service. Every time situations have come up with our shareholders, you have never failed to deliver that same level of service to them and for us. We are so thankful you are part of our team and are so happy we made the decision to choose Continental as our partner.

 Thanks so much for the always-outstanding service and communication. It’s a pleasure to work with you [Elizabeth] and your team. We’re grateful to you for supporting us and taking great care of our shareholders. I’ve had many other amazing experiences with Continental team members, including Henry Farrell and Rean Quito. Your team always exceeds expectations.

 You guys have been absolutely fabulous. Your service currently is as spectacular as it was before this crisis. Thank you for your services and keep safe.
