Our American Depository Receipt program is a way for US investors to purchase certificates – which represent ownership of shares in Greene King – in U.S. dollars and on U.S. markets, rather than buying ordinary shares through the London Stock Exchange. Each ADR represents two Greene King ordinary shares.
OUR ADR PROGRAM
We have a sponsored Level I American Depositary Receipt (ADR) program in place which is administered by Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas (Deutsche Bank).
The Level I ADR program trades on the U.S. over-the-counter (OTC) markets, under the symbol GKNGY. The ADRs are not listed on a U.S. stock exchange. Each Greene King ADR represents 2 Greene King Ordinary Shares.
The details of our ADR program are:
Structure: Level I ADR
Trading venue: OTC
Ratio: 1 ADR : 2 Ordinary Shares
DR ISIN: US3947022030

DEUTSCHE BANK’S ROLES
As the depositary bank for our sponsored Level I ADR program, Deutsche Bank performs the following roles for ADR holders:
- Records and maintains the register of ADR holders
- Is the stock transfer agent
- Distributes in U.S. dollars any dividends declared by the Board of Directors
- Facilitates the proxy voting process and exercises the voting rights on behalf of ADR holders (if instructed to)
- Issues and cancels Greene King ADRs
If you are a beneficial ADR holder, you will not be named on the register as your shares are held through a ‘street name’ (or nominee account). Your nominee will receive company documents from time to time from Deutsche Bank to distribute to ADR holders. You should make arrangements with your nominee if you wish to receive these documents and if you would like to exercise your vote through the depositary bank at general meetings (if applicable).
