ADR programme

On 14 March 2013, Austrian Post started a Level 1 American Depositary Receipt (ADR) programme. ADRs are a U.S. dollar-denominated form of equity ownership in a non-U.S. company. They represent a company’s shares and carry the rights attached to them. The Bank of New York Mellon (BNY Mellon) acts as the depositary and transfer agent for the Austrian Post ADR programme. The securities trade on the over-the-counter market in the Unites States.

Answers to the most frequently asked questions about the ADR programme:

An ADR is a negotiable U.S. dollar-denominated certificate representing ownership of shares in a non-U.S. company. ADRs were specifically designed to facilitate the purchase, holding and sale of non-U.S. securities by U.S. investors. Holders of ADRs receive dividends in U.S. dollars.

U.S. investors may prefer to purchase ADRs rather than shares in the issuer’s home market because ADRs trade, clear and settle according to U.S. market conventions and are denominated in U.S. dollars.

Austrian Post ADRs are traded on the over-the-counter (OTC) market in the U.S.
