Member advice on Obtaining Stock Records

Long-time HP employees will have old statements from HP's previous transfer agents -- which also administered the various employee stock purchase plans over the years:

- Harris Trust.

- Computershare. Bought the Harris registry business in 2001.

- ChaseMellon. Joint venture between Mellon and Chase in 1995.

- BNY Mellon. Unencrypted backup tapes with information on 12 million shareholders -- including HP's -- were twice lost by BNY couriers in 2008. (We got one year of identity monitoring service. No members reported breaches.)

- Computershare again. Bought the Mellon registry business in 2012.


- HP's transfer agent is Equiniti. Bought Shareowner Services division of Wells Fargo in 2019.

- HP employee purchase administration is now at the benefits administration division of Fidelity.
