Level III ADR program (American Depository Receipt)

Grifols launched a Level III American Depository Receipt (ADR) Program in the US on June 2, 2011. 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.

One ADR represents one class B share of Grifols and has the same rights. The dividends are equivalent to Grifols' class B shares dividends and are paid to investors in US dollars. Dividends are converted into US dollars by the depository bank at the prevailing rate.
