What is an ADR
An American Depositary Receipt (ADR) is a security which has been created to permit US investors to hold shares in non-US companies. It is a receipt that is issued by a depositary bank representing ownership of a company's underlying ordinary shares. ADRs are quoted in US dollars and trade just like any other US security. Trading in ADRs, as opposed to ordinary shares, permits US residents to trade, in US dollars, in the US securities markets as they would with other US securities.

What are the rights of an ADR holder

They are also generally entitled to the same rights as the underlying shareholders, subject to the terms specified on the ADR certificate.
