CapWatch Tutorial

CapWatch Main Screen

CapWatch provides you with easy access to Corporate and Municipal change information. It features details from over a million and a half capital changes, dating back to 1986. It offers everything you have come to expect from EVP software, including easy installation, both modem and Internet connectivity and enterprise networkability. It uses the standard Windows graphical interface, so it is instantly familiar and very easy to use.

To run CapWatch, just install the latest version of EVP Office. Once installed, click on the CapWatch icon on your desktop. A screen appears which asks you for a Name or CUSIP number and a Report Title (optional). At the prompt, simply type a six, eight or nine digit CUSIP or the first few letters of the name of the security you are looking for and click on the "Search" button. CapWatch provides a list of securities. Select the appropriate security and double-click or press "Get Actions". Select the action you are seeking and double-click or press "Get Details" to get the details of the item.

CapWatch Actions Screen

You can print a screen by pressing the "Print" button in the lower left corner of the window, or click "Edit" and copy the data to the clipboard to paste it into a word processor.

Tips

When performing a name search, spell out the name of the company. For instance, General Electric, rather than GE, unless the company name is expressed as letters such as TRW.

When performing municipal bond name searches, if more than 500 issues qualify under your search parameters, you will receive a message that asks you to better modify your search. Searches for small to mid-size cities or county searches will get better results. Searches for large states or cities usually result in the 500-issue restraint.

CapWatch will respond to inquiries using 6, 8 or 9 digits CUSIP numbers. The first six digits identify the issuer. Eight digits identify a particular issue and the 9th digit is a check digit.

If given the choice of several notices relating to the same action (usually a cluster of dates), select the most recent date. Chances are it will contain all the information previously issued. The final word on most multiple entries is typically "Completion" or "Termination."

Charges

CapWatch charges fifty cents for each screen of actions or details you view. Additionally, if you are using the Modem method of communications, the program incurs long-distance charges to the 818 area code in Los Angeles, California. If you use the Internet, there are no communication charges.
