American Depository Receipts Program

By launching a sponsored Level 1 American Depository Receipt (ADR) program, Covestro is giving global investors easier access to its shares. Covestro’s ADRs are traded on the U.S. OTC (over-the-counter) market beginning December 1, 2016, under the symbol COVTY. The program enables the company to make direct contact with registered depositary receipt investors and to broaden its shareholder base. Furthermore, employees in the U.S. will have the opportunity to take part in Covestro´s share participation program "Covestment".

American depositary receipts are issued by U.S. depositary banks as tradable securities that certify the right to shares of a non-U.S. company. Investors are thus able to invest indirectly in German companies that are not listed on a U.S. stock exchange. At the same time, securitization ensures increased transparency for investors compared to unsponsored ADRs.

The financial services provider Bank of New York Mellon operates as the depositary bank for the sponsored ADR program.
