American Depositary Receipt (ADR) Program
Software AG Corporation has established a Level-1 American Depositary Receipt (ADR) Program. ADRs are negotiable U.S. certificates evidencing ownership of shares for a non-U.S. company. They enable U.S. investors to acquire and trade non-U.S. securities denominated in U.S. dollars. The Level-1 ADR Program will enable over-the-counter (OTC) trading of unlisted ADRs representing the Software AG stock. Software AG will use the OTCQX platform, a premier market place for over-the-counter business in the U.S.
