            Deutsche Bank, as the depositary bank for Dixons Carphone’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 US dollars (when dividends have been declared by the Board of Directors)
            • Issues and cancels Dixons Carphone 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).

            Frequently Asked Questions

            An ADR is a negotiable US certificate representing ownership of shares in a non-US corporation. ADRs are quoted and traded in US dollars in the US securities market. Dividend payments (if declared by the Board of Directors) are also paid in US dollars. ADRs were specifically designed to facilitate the purchase, holding and sale of non-US securities by US investors and to provide a corporate finance vehicle for non-US companies

            US investors generally prefer to purchase ADRs rather than ordinary shares in the issuer's home market because ADRs trade, clear and settle according to US market conventions. One of the main advantages is the facilitation of diversification into foreign securities. ADRs allow easy comparison to securities of similar companies, as well as access to price and trading information. ADR holders also appreciate US dollar dividend payments (if declared) and receiving corporate action notifications.
