Deutsche Bank, as the depositary bank for Travis Perkins’s sponsored Level I ADR program, performs the following roles for ADR holders:

  • Records and maintains the register of ADR holders
  • Is the stock transfer agent
  • Distributes dividends in U.S. dollars (when dividends have been declared by the Board of Directors)
  • Issues new Travis Perkins ADRs and cancels existing Travis Perkins ADRs

For those holders who are not registered because their shares are held through a ‘street name’ (bank or broker nominee account), your nominee will receive company documents from time to time from Deutsche Bank to distribute to ADR holders. You need to make arrangements with your nominee if you wish to receive such documents and to be able to exercise your vote through the depositary bank at general meetings (if applicable).

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an American Depositary Receipt?

An ADR is a negotiable U.S. certificate representing ownership of shares in a non-U.S. corporation. ADRs are quoted and traded in U.S. dollars in the U.S. securities market. Dividend payments (if declared by the Board of Directors) are also paid in U.S. dollars. ADRs were specifically designed to facilitate the purchase, holding and sale of non-U.S. securities by U.S. investors and to provide a corporate finance vehicle for non-U.S. companies.

What are the benefits of ADRs to US investors?

U.S. investors generally prefer to purchase ADRs rather than ordinary shares in the issuer's home market because ADRs trade, clear and settle according to U.S. market conventions. One of the main advantages is the facilitation of diversification into foreign securities. ADRs allow easy comparison to securities of similar companies, as well as access to price and trading information. ADR holders also appreciate U.S. dollar dividend payments (if declared) and receiving corporate action notifications.

What is the difference between a registered holder and a beneficial ADR holder?
