Issued by: Carver Edison

Date: Sept. 17, 2019

Administrators using E*TRADE can now offer Carver Edison's groundbreaking technology, Cashless Participation, to their company's global workforce

NEW YORK, Sept. 17, 2019 -- Carver Edison, a New York City-based financial technology firm that helps companies and employees build wealth together, has announced that its Cashless ParticipationTM technology is now available to all public companies who use E*TRADE Corporate Services to manage their Employee Stock Purchase Plans (ESPPs). The announcement reflects a major advancement in helping employees nationwide access company-sponsored stock plans.

Cashless Participation will be supported by E*TRADE's industry-leading platform /1/, Equity Edge OnlineŽ, allowing administrators to seamlessly reconcile and process purchases for ESPPs with Cashless Participation. Notably, Carver Edison's technology can now also be offered internationally.

"Our technology rewards companies and creates meaningful opportunity for employees at all levels," noted Aaron Shapiro, founder of Carver Edison. "We are thrilled to be working with E*TRADE, an industry pioneer who shares our innovative spirit and commitment to helping plan sponsors and participants grow together."

Cashless Participation is an enhancement to ESPPs that allows employees to maximize their ESPP contributions with limited payroll deductions. Participating employees own more shares than they would otherwise have been able to afford without seeing their paychecks shrink.
