ADR Information

An American Depositary Share (ADS) is a security which has been created to permit US investors to hold shares in non-US companies and trade them on stock exchanges in the US.

Trading in ADSs, as opposed to ordinary shares, permits US residents to trade in US dollars in the US securities markets with US securities dealers, in the same way as they trade any US securities.

An American Depositary Receipt (ADR) 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. Ferguson plc has a sponsored Level 1 ADR programme in the US for which the Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas acts as Depositary. When dividends are paid to shareholders, the depositary makes the equivalent payment in US dollars to ADR holders.

Ferguson's ADRs are traded on the highest tier of the over-the-counter (OTC) market (OTC QX) in the United States, under the symbol FERGY. Each ADR represents one-tenth of an ordinary Ferguson plc share.

More information about Ferguson's ADR price can be found on the OTC Markets external specialist website.
