An ADR (American Depositary Receipt) is a negotiable certificate issued by a depositary bank representing a specific number of shares of a non-U.S. company traded on a US stock exchange.
An ADS (American Depositary Share) is the share issued under the ADR agreement which is actually traded. Investors are in a position to hold Marine Harvest ASA ordinary shares through an American Depositary Receipt (ADR) program.
Benefits of ADRs to US investors:
- ADRs give access to cross-border market liquidity
- ADRs are a cost effective way to hold international securities
- ADRs are convenient for US investors because they are quoted in US dollars
- Also, the dividends, if any, are paid to investors in US dollars. ADRs were specifically designed to facilitate the purchase, holding and sale of non-US securities by US investors.
