The Company

Stewart Management Company (“SMC”) offers turnkey full service domicile management services in Delaware and Nevada; independent directors for bankruptcy remote entities; independent directors for publicly traded companies; registered agent services (including agent of process for the Digital Millennium Copyright Act) and company formation services. We also take equity interests in special purpose entities (“SPEs”) to meet various business planning needs.

SMC’s predecessor, DIRS, was formed in 1994 to provide commercial domicile management and registered agent services to clients, including many Fortune 500 companies, of its affiliated law firm, The Stewart Law Firm, with offices in Delaware and Nevada. The affiliated law firm has a national practice focusing on the use of SPEs to achieve a variety of tax and business planning goals. It became apparent that there was a need for SMC’s services beyond that of the clients of its affiliated law firm, so SMC was created to expand its service offerings to the broader global market.Happy group of business men and women

Independent Directors For Bankruptcy Remote Entities

 
bankruptsy-remote-entities2

Independent Managers (Directors for corporations) or Special/Springing Members for special/single purpose entity (“SPE”) are often required by institutional lenders and rating agencies for the financing of assets. The use of a SPE permits lender’s pricing to be determined by the asset(s) and the related cash flows of the SPE, thereby reducing the borrower’s cost. The lender also derives a benefit: the ability to sell the loan into the secondary market.

The Independent Managers provide protection for the lenders with an assurance of “independence” on material corporate actions. No bankruptcy action, for example, can be declared without the approval of the Independent Manager, who, by definition, is not related to or controlled by the borrower. The Operating Agreements of these SPEs can specifically provide that the Independent Manager is to only consider the Company’s and its creditors’ interests in making decisions.

SMC provides professionals available to serve as Independent Directors/Managers/Members for bankruptcy remote SPEs. Our cost conscious fees are determined by the specific duties of the individual(s), the number of SPEs, and appropriate indemnification for the individual(s) appointed. The experience of our directors is reflected in our Team Profile.

To determine our duties, all we need to review is the SPE’s operating agreement or bylaws and articles of incorporation. The only signed document we require from a client is our Indemnity and Fee Agreement.

Independent Directors –Public Companies

Group Of Business People Having Meeting In OfficeThe independence of directors has become an essential component of a healthy corporate board.

Traditional ways of locating directors to serve on companies’ boards are no longer effective because the search has to expand beyond current directors’ sphere of influence. Additionally, the vetting process requires a thorough review of any new director to ascertain the director’s prior affiliation and whether certain requirements are met.

Stewart Management Company has significant exposure to Delaware operations of many Fortune 500 companies and well as smaller national and international firms through the provision of corporate secretarial and other related services. This exposure has enabled SMC to identify top quality individuals for service as Independent Directors. We categorized these qualified persons based both on their primary industry, as well as their specified fields of expertise. The availability of our selection of qualified Directors is continually updated.

We provide the prospective director’s comprehensive work history so that the Standards Committee can confirm the director’s independence more easily. The service we provide is invaluable to the Boards. SMC also maintains an ongoing relationship with the directors to assist them with their schedules and provide an office environment facilitating the timely processing of all required director duties.

Corporate Services

CORPORATE SECRETARY SERVICES

Whether we are documenting the corporate decisions of the large well-established company or the fledging startup, we have the qualifications and experience to provide a level of service designed for the client’s budget.

DIRECTOR & OFFICER SERVICES

We have industry varied, experienced individuals to serve as directors to operating companies. We also provide directors for operating SPEs, whether in the U.S.A., Canada or other select world-wide jurisdictions. We can provide specific citizenship directors for select countries where there is such a requirement. Our exposure to various industries allows our directors to also provide added value.

SOLE OFFICER/DIRECTOR SERVICES

For various business reasons, companies determine that they need a subsidiary company dedicated to addressing a specific need so a special/single purpose entity (“SPE”) is established.  To ensure that the focus of the SPE remains on its dedicated task or to meet certain regulatory and statutory requirements, it may be necessary to obtain an unrelated Officer and/or Director.  At Stewart Management Company, we provide individuals with the business credibility to support these structures.

RESIDENT CAPTIVE INSURANCE DIRECTOR FOR DELAWARE AND NEVADA

There are resident director requirements for any captive licensed in Delaware or Nevada. We provide the statutory required director for these companies.

SOLE MEMBER/SOLE STOCKHOLDER SERVICES

There are commercial reasons to isolate or “orphan” an investment or asset from the parent company and make it desirable to have the sole member/stockholder be an unrelated party. Stewart Management Company provides the necessary infrastructure to function in this capacity.

DELAWARE & NEVADA RESIDENT TRUSTEE SERVICES

Delaware and Nevada (like most states) have provisions that allow residents to serve as resident trustees.  We provide introductions to individuals that meet the resident criteria as outlined by statute.

OTHER SERVICES

  • Registered Agent and Incorporation Services – Delaware and Nevada. We provide incorporation and registered agent services.
  • FDA U.S. Agent Services.
  • Escrow Agent/Collateral Agent. From time to time, a transaction requires a third party (a neutral party) to hold stock or other interests as collateral and to act upon the occurrence of a specified event such as passage of time or breach of terms.
