(PRWEB) February 19, 2003
WOODLAND HILLS, CALIF. Â February 13, 2003 Â Estate Valuations & Pricing Systems, Inc. announced today that its new EstateVal 7.0.1, the latest release of the worldÂs most popular securities valuation software, can determine if a securities portfolio is to-date with a simple click of a mouse. The same information can also be obtained via fax or mail.
With EstateVal, trust officers, probate attorneys and tax accountants can quickly and easily value equities, municipal bonds, mutual funds, corporate and government bonds, mortgage-backed securities (including GNMAs, FNMAs, FHLMCs and CMOs), unit investment trusts (UITs), U.S. Treasuries and savings bonds (E, EE, H and HH).
ÂSecurities are always changing. Now, trust officers, probate attorneys and accountants will never miss a spin-off, name change or bankruptcy using EstateVal 7.0.1,Â affirms EVP president, Michael A. Walker, Ph.D. ÂThey are able to stay on top of dozens of changes to millions of stocks and bonds quickly and easily.Â
According to Walker, EstateVal 7.0.1 incorporates new research reports that list the details of every capital change that could affect a portfolio for six months previous to the desired date. They provide details for spin-offs, name changes, CUSIP changes, bankruptcies, mergers, splits, reverse splits, dividends, completions, defaults, distributions, liquidations, reclassifications and redemptions. Knowing of any changes six months prior to a Date of Death or Alternate Date can be especially important to those filing a Form 706 and to the deceasedÂs heirs for establishing a new cost basis.
As an example of a change, Walker suggests looking at AT&T.
ÂLetÂs consider that someone died in July and the last statement found showed that the deceased owned 1000 shares. If the CPA entered 1000 shares of AT&T on the Form 706, they would be wrong because, in June, the AT&T undertook a one-for-five reverse split and spun off Comcast. Using EstateVal, the CPA would have entered 200 AT&T shares and the correct number of Comcast shares.Â
Pricing for the new feature is very efficient. Clients are billed only if data is found that affects the portfolio. When important information is discovered, the cost is only 50 cents per capital change.
The software and its upgrades are available without charge from EVPÂs website at http://www.evpsys.com/software/ or via CD-ROM by contacting EVP at 800-237-3440.
