Company Overview
Founded in 1999, our mission is to simplify equity plan administration through leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology. Innovation is the fuel that powers our evolution and growth, and we continue to make significant investments in research and development to ensure our solutions and services remain well ahead of the competition.

Since our inception, we've grown organically and through strategic M&A. In 2007, Solium acquired U.S.-based Allecon Stock Associates. In 2010 and 2012, we completed the respective integrations of the Transcentive platform from Computershare and CapMx technology from Silicon Valley Bank Analytics. In late 2012, we acquired California-based OptionEase, a leading provider of SaaS applications for accounting and compliance.

In 2011, we broke ground in London - a strategic initiative that brought our pioneering spirit and professional acumen to the other side of the Atlantic. And in September 2012, we established a presence in Australia, marking our foray into Asia Pacific. We'll continue to assess opportunities and break into new markets, many of which are ready for our premium software and services.

From our roots as a Calgary-based start-up company, we've grown into a multinational public corporation with offices in the United States, Canada, the UK and Australia. Today, we are leading the evolution of global equity plan management.
