How to Distribute Your Official Statements Quickly and Easily
Distributing your Official Statement involves incorporating changes and revisions from all working group members, acquiring document approval and sending the final version to print before mailing and posting at key distribution points. Even if everything went smoothly, this can often become a laborious and time-consuming process. Now that the Electronic Municipal Market Access (EMMA) system has announced that its permitting 100% electronic distribution of Official Statements, the process can become even more complicated.
Nevertheless, when choosing a partner to help you effectively distribute your Municipal Bonds, there are several important factors to bear in mind:
Just because new regulations allow for near instantaneous electronic transmission, that doesn't mean your distribution partner is up to the task. It's important to find a provider who can assure that your Official Statement will be treated as a priority and distributed expeditiously.
With ImageMaster's 30-Minute Rapid Statement Guarantee™, you can rest assured that a fully-secured PDF of your Official Statement will be distributed and posted to MuniOS.com within 30 minutes of final approval, no matter the time of day or night.
When choosing a document preparation and distribution partner for your Official Statement, it's important to consider the experience of their personnel. Trusting your Official Statement to just any printer or traditional mail-house may result in more trouble and costs than their low project bid lets on. Without the right expertise in place to ensure timely revisions and treatment, your Municipal Bond might be considerably delayed, or worse, full of errors.
ImageMaster's team is comprised of experts in Official Statements, many of whom came directly from the financial industry. Our breadth of experience and in-depth understanding of client needs set us apart.
One of the primary concerns with electronic distribution of Official Statements is data security. With all the electronic threats out there, how can you be sure that your information is certified and secure?
Every deal that we electronically distribute on behalf of our clients contains our Certified Digital Signature (CDS). When you open the PDF of your Official Statement in Adobe Acrobat, the program will display a blue ribbon after confirming that this signature is legitimate. This blue ribbon certifies the integrity and the source of your document, and confirms that it's an original copy authored by the working group members.
In order to take full advantage of electronic distribution for your Official Statement, it's important to find a partner who offers comprehensive tracking of document downloads.
ImageMaster provides each client with a complimentary MuniAlert™ text message, letting you know the exact time that your Official Statement is distributed. ImageMaster also tracks each unique download of your Official Statement. If, for any reason, you have to make a change to your book after it's been distributed, we'll automatically notify everyone who saw the old version, offering instructions on how to access the current version.
