ADR Programme


An ADR (American Depositary Receipt) is a negotiable U.S. certificate representing ownership of shares in a non-U.S. corporation. ADRs are quoted and traded in U.S. dollars in the U.S. over-the-counter securities market. Also, the dividends are paid to investors in U.S.dollars. ADRs were specifically designed to facilitate the purchase, holding and sale of non-U.S. securities by U.S. investor, and to provide a corporate finance vehicle for non-U.S. companies.

Is it easy to get information and updates on an ADR company?

ADR issuers generally have full information in English about themselves on their websites, as well as on the main depositary bank websites, and are better tracked by the main U.S. financial websites. The Greencore ADR is not listed on a US exchange, but trades in the over-the-counter market.
