ADR FAQs

What is an ADR?

An American Depositary Receipt (ADR) is a negotiable instrument that represents ownership in securities of a non-US company; it is a mechanism that facilitates US trading of non-US securities. ADRs are created when a broker purchases the non-US company's shares on the home stock market and delivers those to the Depositary's local custodian bank, which then instructs the Depositary bank to issue Depositary Receipts, i.e. ADRs. In addition, Depositary Receipts may also be purchased in the US secondary trading market, on an exchange or in the over-the-counter market.

What are ADSs?

An American Depositary Share (ADS) is a share, evidenced by an ADR, that represents a specified number of underlying shares held in custody in the issuer's home market. The terms ADR and ADS are often used interchangeably. Vodafone ADSs, each representing 10 Ordinary Shares, are traded on the NASDAQ Stock Market under the VOD symbol.

ADS holders are not members of the Company, but may instruct Deutsche Bank on the exercise of voting rights relative to the number of Ordinary Shares represented by their ADRs.
