What are American Depositary Receipts (ADRs)?
The stocks of most foreign companies that trade in the U.S. markets are traded as American Depositary Receipts (ADRs). U.S. depositary banks issue these stocks. Each ADR represents one or more shares of foreign stock or a fraction of a share. If you own an ADR, you have the right to obtain the foreign stock it represents, but U.S. investors usually find it more convenient to own the ADR. The price of an ADR corresponds to the price of the foreign stock in its home market, adjusted to the ratio of the ADRs to foreign company shares. Securities of a foreign company that are represented by an ADR are called American depositary shares (ADSs).
Why issue ADRs?
The advantages of ADRs are twofold. For individuals, ADRs are an easy and cost-effective way to buy shares in a foreign company. They save money by reducing administration costs and avoiding foreign taxes on each transaction. Foreign entities like ADRs because they get more U.S. exposure, allowing them to tap into the wealthy North American equities markets.
What types of ADR programs exist and which type does Midatech Pharma have?
There are three different types of ADR issues:
There are three types of ADR program (see below). Midatech Pharma has a Level 3 ADR program which trades on NASDAQ (ticker: MTP):
Level 1 - This is the most basic type of ADR aimed at non-U.S. companies that either don't qualify or don't wish to have their ADR listed on a U.S. stock exchange. Level 1 ADRs trade on the U.S. over-the-counter market and are an easy and inexpensive way for a company to gauge interest for its securities in the U.S.
Level 2 - This type of ADR program is listed on a U.S. stock exchange and therefore requires the issuer to adhere fully with the 2002 Sarbanes-Oxley Act, but this additional disclosure and regulation often results in greater visibility, trading volume and investor interest.
Level 3 – Like a Level 2 ADR program, a Level 3 ADR program is also listed on a U.S. stock exchange but also involves a capital-raising event in the form of ADRs. This is the ADR program that Midatech Pharma established in December 2015
