Irrevocable Stock Power
This stock power form is used to give authorisation from the holder of US or Canadian certificated stocks to a broker to either sell or dematerialise his stock. A stock power, when signed, will supersede any information already entered onto the back of the certificate by the client. Therefore, if any mistakes are made when signing or filling out the back of the certificate, these can be overridden by the use of a stock power.

In order for a stock power form to be valid, the signature must be legible and match exactly the name on the front of the certificate. Thus a client must sign in his/her full name if this is how it appears on the certificate. For example, if an initial 'J' appears on the Certificate the signature should also include the 'J'.
