Depositary Receipts in American (ADR) or Global (GDR) form are commonly used in global equity offerings to U.S. and non-U.S. investors. Depositary Receipts facilitate cross-border trading and settlement, minimise transaction costs and may broaden a non-U.S. company’s potential investor base, particularly among institutional investors.

What are Depositary Receipts?

A Depositary Receipt is a negotiable certificate that usually represents a company’s publicly traded equity or debt. Depositary Receipts are created when a broker purchases the 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. Depositary Receipts may trade freely, just like any other security, either on an exchange or in the over-the-counter market and can be used to raise capital.

ADRs and GDRs

ADRs and GDRs are identical from a legal, operational, technical and administrative standpoint. Simply, the word “Global,” rather than “American,” is used when it is preferred for marketing reasons.

Benefits to a Company

The primary reasons why a company would establish a Depositary Receipt programme can be divided into two broad considerations: capital and commercial. Among those considerations:

To enlarge the market for its shares through a broadened and a more diversified investor exposure which may increase or stabilise the share price. To enhance the image of the company’s products, services or financial instruments in a marketplace outside its home country. To provide a mechanism for raising capital or as a vehicle for an acquisition. To enable employees to invest easily in the parent company.

Benefits to an Investor

Increasingly, investors aim to diversify their portfolios internationally. Obstacles, however, such as undependable settlements, costly currency conversions, unreliable custody services, poor information flow, unfamiliar market practices, confusing tax conventions and internal investment policy may discourage institutions and private investors from venturing outside their local market.

As negotiable securities, Depositary Receipts are usually quoted in U.S. dollars and pay dividends or interest in U.S. dollars. Depositary Receipts overcome obstacles that mutual funds, pension funds and other institutions may have in purchasing and holding securities outside of their local market. Global custodian safekeeping charges are eliminated, saving Depositary Receipt investors 10 to 40 basis points annually. Dividends and other cash distributions are converted into dollars at competitive foreign exchange rates. Depositary Receipts are as liquid as the underlying securities because the two are interchangeable.

Types of Depositary Receipt Facilities

Companies have a choice of four types of Depositary Receipt facilities: unsponsored and three levels of sponsored Depositary Receipts. Unsponsored Depositary Receipts are issued by one or more depositaries in response to market demand, but without a formal agreement with the company. Today, unsponsored Depositary Receipts are considered obsolete and, under most circumstances, are no longer established due to lack of control over the facility and its hidden costs. Sponsored Depositary Receipts are issued by one depositary appointed by the company under a Deposit Agreement or service contract. Sponsored Depositary Receipts offer control over the facility, the flexibility to list on a national exchange in the U.S. and the ability to raise capital.
