Managing shareholders, common equity, cap tables, and company filings is much easier and more efficient with Eqvista. You can manage all of your equity in one place without any trouble

With the new Spreadsheet feature, users can now manage large volumes of data (shareholders, stocks, grants, etc.), in a similar way to Excel spreadsheets. You can add, edit, and delete multiple rows and columns of information easily and store everything securely.

Note: The spreadsheet feature is only available to Premium account holders. Please upgrade your account if you want to unlock this feature.

Here is the step-by-step guide to view the table for shareholders under Spreadsheet view.
