A Registered share is a stock that is registered on the name of the exact owner. If the owner of such a share sells his share, the new owner must register with name and address.
Registered shares offer issuers the advantage, enabling them to always know exactly who their shareholders are. Surprises with active investors could be prohibited with that stock-vehicle.
