ADRs (American Depositary Receipts) are receipts which are issued by a depositary bank in the U.S., and represent ownership interests in the underlying securities of a non-U.S. company. When registered with the SEC, an ADR may be traded, settled and held in the same manner as shares of U.S. companies.
Sponsored ADRs are issued by a specified depositary bank under a depositary agreement entered into between the issuer of the underlying shares and depositary bank. The agreement defines the rights and obligations of the issuer, ADR holders and the depositary bank. Sponsored ADR programs are classified into three types; Level I, Level II, and Level III, depending on whether the program is listed, or a public offering of new or existing shares is conducted. The level of disclosure required by the SEC changes based upon these types. Level I ADR programs are unlisted programs, Level II ADR programs are listed programs (e.g., on the New York Stock Exchange), and Level III ADR programs are listed programs accompanied by the raising of new capital through an issuance of new shares.
