Deutsche Bank, as the depositary bank for Whitbread’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 Whitbread ADRs and cancels existing Whitbread 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).
