Answers to the most important questions in relation to the ADR program:
- What is an American Depositary Receipt (ADR)?
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.
- What are the benefits of ADRs to U.S. investors?
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.
- Where are Austrian Post ADRs traded?
Austrian Post ADRs are traded on the over-the-counter (OTC) market in the U.S.
