Ablynx sponsors a Level 3 American Depositary Receipt (ADR) programme in the United States. The ADRs, which each represent one ordinary share of the Company, are publicly traded in the US on NASDAQ, under symbol ABLX. The value of one Ablynx ADR corresponds to the value of one Ablynx share.

What are ADRs
American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) are dollar-denominated securities which represent ownership of equity in non-U.S. companies. ADRs trade, clear and settle like any U.S. shares and are held in U.S. custody.

Benefits of ADRs

  • ADRs allow U.S. investors to trade locally in non-U.S. companies;
  • Dividends are paid in U.S. dollars and the dividend tax re-claim process is taken care of by the depositary bank, typically reducing dividend tax to the U.S. level (with the actual tax rate depending on the investor’s individual circumstances);
  • Global custodian safekeeping fees are eliminated when holding ADRs which usually make holding ADRs less expensive.

What is the role of Ablynx depositary bank?
As Ablynx’ depositary bank, J.P. Morgan issues and cancels Ablynx ADRs, serves as transfer agent, maintains the register of ADR holders and distributes dollar-denominated dividends to ADR holders.

How can I buy and sell Ablynx ADRs?
Institutional and individual investors can trade Ablynx ADRs – or have them issued or cancelled – through a U.S. registered broker-dealer.
