ADR FAQs

ADRs are a negotiable US dollar denominated certificate representing ownership of shares in a non-US company.  H. Lundbeck's ADRs represent H. Lundbeck's ordinary shares deposited with the depositary bank, to underlie such certificates and carry the rights attached to them as detailed in the Depositary Agreement. Holders of ADRs receive dividends in US dollars (if applicable) and have the right to vote on shareholders resolutions. The term ADR and ADS are often used interchangeably. ADRs were specifically designed to facilitate the purchase, holding and sale of non-U.S. securities by US investors.

This is the relation between the number of ADRs and the number of ordinary shares. Every 1 ordinary H. Lundbeck share represents 1 H. Lundbeck ADRs.

US investors may prefer to purchase ADRs rather than ordinary shares in the issuer's home market because ADRs trade, clear and settle according to US market conventions. One of ADRs' top advantages is the facilitated diversification into foreign securities. ADRs also allow easy comparison to securities of similar companies as well as access to price and trading information.

Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas. The depositary bank plays a key role in issuance as well as cancellation of ADRs. It also maintains the ADR holder register, distributes the dividends in US dollars (if applicable) and facilitates the exercise by the ADRs holders of their voting rights (if applicable).

A registered holder is one whose name appears on the books of the depositary bank. The registered holder is considered the owner of record. A beneficial holder is one whose holdings are registered in a name other than their own, such as in the name of a broker, bank or nominee.

Converting ordinary shares into ADRs must be done through a broker investment advisor or through Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas. You can contact Deutsche Bank broker services desk on +1 212 250 9100 or +44 207 547 6500.
