Voice your support for DRS information
Less than .01% of Publicly Traded U.S. Stocks Share DRS Data in Financial Filings.
Sharing direct registration statistics publicly will allow issuers to be transparent about a strong foundation of support, or even help entice new investors to directly register shares and help that foundation to be built.
In a February 2023 appearance, SEC Chairman Gary Gensler shared his perspective on why these release figures were so low. "From an issuer point of view, I think an issuer makes disclosures that their investors find material - and engaging with issuers as you have may change what they think that investors find material."
The WhyDRS team understands that the main reason companies have not disclosed DRS numbers in the past could be because individual investors simply haven’t asked for it clearly enough. Therefore, using this tool, individual investors can generate a starting point to personalize an outreach email to issuers and encourage companies to share their statistics on investor diversity.
