American Depository Receipt

    • What is an ADR?

      An American Depositary Receipt (ADR) represents an ownership interest in a global security. Each ADR represents a designated number of ordinary shares traded in the home market. Using a U.S. depositary bank, ADRs are traded in U.S. dollars by broker-dealers, during US trading hours, making it easier for US investors to hold global investments. The ADR is issued by a U.S. custodian bank. The U.S. bank, acting as ADR intermediary, will purchase a block of shares from the overseas-quoted company, bundle these into groups and reissue them on a U.S. exchange such as NASDAQ or via an over-the-counter (OTC) trading platform in the U.S. The ADR is set at a ratio to the price of the quoted share to ensure that it is not classified as a U.S. “penny stock” and yet remain affordable to investors. An ADR is traded as an ADS, i.e. the share issued under the ADR programme.

    • Why issue an ADR?

      An ADR facilitates trading by U.S. investors and may therefore contribute additional trading volume. It is also a means of reinforcing the presence and awareness of overseas equity in the important and attractive U.S. investment market.

    • What are the benefits of ADRs to US investors?

      The ADR enables a U.S. investor portfolio diversification into foreign securities. ADRs trade, clear and settle according to U.S. market conventions. ADRs also allow easy comparison to securities of similar listed companies as well as access to price and trading information. In addition:

      • ADRs can be traded in U.S. dollars through a U.S. broker-dealer during regular U.S. trading hours, when local markets may be closed
      • Efficient pricing and depth of trading is connected to home market liquidity through convertibility to ordinary shares
      • Clear information channels provide U.S. investors with easy access to company news and disclosure through a U.S. trading symbol
      • Dividends are paid and taxable in U.S. dollars, and local taxes are managed by the depositary bank
    • Which are the types of an ADR?

      There are three types of ADR, Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3. As each is backed by an issuing bank they are termed “sponsored” ADRs.

      Level 1 ADR

      Level 1 ADR programmes, account for 75% of all ADRs, and are publicly traded on one of OTC Markets Group’s three marketplaces: OTCQX®, OTCQB® or OTC Pink®. Establishing a Level 1 ADR program requires that a company make its local exchange and home country disclosure available in English to US investors, but does not require full SEC registration. This enables internationally listed companies to provide the benefits of trading on a well-regulated US public trading market to their U.S. investors, while reducing duplication in reporting requirements. A Level 1 ADR does not enable the issue of new equity or a fund raise. Reporting in U.S. GAAP is not required. However, the audit and approval process involves detailed and thorough submission of accounts.

      Level 2 ADR

      A Level 2 ADR is quoted on an exchange such as NASDAQ. Level 2 ADRs require SEC registration, and an annual 20-F submission under U.S. GAAP or IFRS.

      Level 3 ADR

      A level 3 ADR is quoted and accompanied by the issue of equity in the form of a public offering. Annual 20-F filing under U.S. GAAP or IFRS is required.

    • Are there risks?

      ADR risk is commonly associated with any political, exchange rate or underlying currency uncertainties. In the case of a UK-domiciled and traded equity these risks may be judged to be transparent and of less concern to a U.S. investor.

    • Globo’s Level 1 ADR

      Globo has issued a Level 1 ADR
      The custodian bank is The Bank of New York Mellon
      Globo’s ADR will be quoted on OTCQX
      Real-time quote data for Globo’s ADR may be accessed at: www.otcmarkets.com/stock/GOBPY/quote
      The stock trading code (CUSIP) is 37959C 106

    • How was Globo’s Level 1 ADR priced?

      Globo’s Level 1 ADR was priced at a ratio of 20:1.
      Therefore Globo’s ADR was initially priced at:

      • Closing Globo (GBO) LSE AIM bid/ask price on May 15th 2015: 55.50p/56.00p
      • At a 20:1 ratio: 1,110p/1,120p (GB£11.1/GB£11.2)
      • Subsequent trading. The ADR should generally trade in line with the underlying quoted equity, although some variations may give rise to arbitrage opportunities.
    • How can I trade Globo’s ADR?

      An ADR is traded in the same manner as a U.S. security, during U.S. trading hours, through the U.S. broker-dealer, including online brokerages and investment advisors.

    • May an ADR be used to “short” a stock?

      An ADR may be used to short sell.

    • How does an ADR affect voting rights?

      Holders of ADRs are entitled to instruct the depositary bank to exercise voting rights accorded to the number of ordinary shares represented by the ADR.

    • How are dividends paid and taxed?

      Dividends are paid and taxable in U.S. dollars. Local taxes are managed by the depositary bank.

    • What is OTCQX?

      The OTCQX marketplace is the leading tier of the US over-the-counter market. OTCQX offers investors information on trading, company background and news, and access to regulated broker-dealers. It is used by 391* overseas, principally European, companies, such as Roche, BASF, Deutsche Telekom, AXA, Sky PLC., Heineken, Severn Trent PLC etc. OTCQX Markets states that its platform is: “Designed for investor-focused companies that meet high financial standards, are current in their disclosure and receive third party advisory.

The Directors comply with Rule 21 of the AIM Rules relating to directors’ dealings and will take all reasonable steps to ensure compliance by the Group’s applicable employees.
