Business Continuity Disclosure

SMC Terminus Group, Inc., and affiliates (herein referenced as “Terminus”) has established and developed an enterprise-wide business continuity planning program to assess and manage how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is unpredictable, we will have to be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, we are providing you with this information on our business continuity plan.

If after a significant business disruption you cannot contact us as you usually do at (404) 418-5211, you may also access our web site at We plan to quickly recover and resume business operations after a significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting the firm’s books and records, and allowing our customers to transact business. In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption. Our business continuity plan addresses: data backup and recovery; all mission critical systems; financial and operational assessments; alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternate physical location of employees; critical suppliers, contractors, bank and counter-party impact; and regulatory reporting.

Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope, such as only our firm, a single building housing our firm, the business district where our firm is located, the city where we are located, or the whole region. Within each of these areas, the severity of the disruption can also vary from minimal to severe. In a disruption to only our firm or a building housing our firm, we will transfer our operations to a local site when needed and expect to recover and resume business within 2 business days. In a disruption affecting our business district, city, or region, we will transfer our operations to a site outside of the affected area, and recover and resume business within 5 business days. If the significant business disruption is so severe that it prevents us from remaining in business, we will notify all customers promptly.

While Terminus’s business continuity plan has been reasonably designed to allow the Firm to operate during emergency incidents of varying scope, such potential incidents are unpredictable. The Firm has no control over certain infrastructure such as utilities, communication networks, transportation, and third party providers that Terminus may rely on during an emergency. Because of the unpredictable and unknown nature of a potential business disruption, Terminus cannot guarantee that our systems will always be available or bale to be recovered in the event of a serious emergency disruption. Terminus’ business continuity plan is subject to change without notice.
