I have lost my stock certificate. How can I replace it?
Because there are costs involved in replacing stock certificates, you should make every effort to locate your certificates first. (Don’t forget to check your safety deposit box.)

If you still cannot find your certificate, contact shareholder services at our corporate office or our transfer agent, Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company.

Continental will put a stop on the certificates. They will then send you an affidavit and instructions for obtaining replacement certificates. This includes posting a surety bond totaling 2% of the current market value of the total shares of stock.

Continental will issue new certificates within two weeks of receiving the completed paperwork.
