ADR

The Company’s ADR program is sponsored by Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas. PGS ADRs are traded over the counter in the US under the ticker symbol “PGSVY”.

As the Depositary bank, Deutsche Bank performs the following roles for ADR holders: - Records and maintains the register of ADR holders (Registered holders) - Is the stock transfer agent - Distributes dividends in U.S. dollars - Facilitates the proxy voting process and exercises the voting rights on behalf of ADR holders  - Issues and cancels PGS ADRs - Can distribute company circulars and Annual General Meeting documentation as requested. 

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. Also, the dividends are paid to investor in U.S. dollars. ADRs were specifically designed to facilitate the purchase, holding and sale of non-U.S. securities by U.S. investor, and to provide a corporate finance vehicle for non-U.S. companies.

An American Depositary Receipt (ADR) is the actual physical certificate whereas an American Depositary Share (ADS) is the actual share. An ADR can represent any number of ADSs. The term "ADR" is often used to mean both the certificates and the securities themselves.

  • PGS ADRs are traded over the counter in the US under the ticker symbol “PGSVY”.
  • You can buy PGS ADRs through a stock broker or investment advisor in the US.

For those holders which are not registered because their shares are held through a ‘Street name’ (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.
