Beautiful engraved cancelled Bond Certificate from the University Computing Company issued in 1974 - 1977. Early computer company certificates are becoming scarce and highly desirable. This cancelled certificate has an ornate green border with a vignette of an allegorical woman sitting in front of a downtown area holding a globe in her hand.
Certificate Vignette In 1963, Sam Wyly founded University Computing Company, a computer software and services company, and served as President or Chairman from 1963 until 1979. University created a computer utility network, one of the earliest and most successful marriages of computing and telecommunications. University was one of the original participants in the software products industry in the late 1960s when the then market-dominant IBM unbundled computer hardware and software. Mr. Wyly was called "one of the most--if not the most successful post-war entrepreneurs" by Fortune magazine senior editor Gene Bylinski. After his graduation from Michigan in 1957, Mr. Wyly worked for five years at IBM and Honeywell. He was a contemporary of Ross Perot at IBM and, like Perot, struck out on his own in the computer business. Mr. Wyly founded University Computing Company (UCC) in 1963, which went public in 1965 and earned its investors a 100:1 return in the next four years. He has since been a highly successful investor and the founder of several other public companies. He is currently governing stockholder and managing director of Sterling Software, Sterling Commerce, Maverick Capital, and Michaels Stores, all based in Dallas. This certificate is over 25 years old and looks great framed. The document looks much nicer in person than the scan indicates.
