A transfer agent and registrar for a publicly held company keep records of every outstanding stock certificate and the name of the person to whom it is registered. When stock changes hands, the transfer agent transfers the ownership of the stock from the seller's name to the buyer's name. The registrar reconciles all transfer records and makes certain that the number of shares debited is equal to the number of shares credited. Oclaro's transfer agent is The Bank of New York. Please note that the transfer agent does not maintain records of shares bought and sold through brokerage accounts.
