Frequently Asked Questions

Our stock is traded on the ASX under the symbol DTZ, and our ADR symbol is DTZNY on the OTC Market.

Dotz Nano’s Level I ADRs are traded in the US on the OTC over-the-counter market under ticker DTZNY.

Depositary receipts (DRs) are negotiable U.S. securities issued by a U.S. bank, referred to as a “depositary bank,” that typically represent a non-U.S. company’s equity. DRs trade freely in global markets and facilitate cross-border trading.

DRs allow non-U.S. companies to make their shares available outside their home markets and allow investors in the U.S. and elsewhere to easily invest in companies on a more global basis.

Investors in the United States can benefit from holding ADRs rather than ordinary shares in the issuer’s home market, because ADRs trade, clear and settle according to United States market conventions. ADRs allow US investors to diversify into non-US securities and hold these in their US brokerage accounts. ADRs also allow easy comparison to securities of similar companies as well as access to price and trading information, U.S. dollar dividend payments and corporate action notifications.

BNY Mellon is the depositary bank and plays a key role in the process of issuance and cancellation of ADRs.

An ADR ratio provides the number of underlying shares represented by one ADR. 1 Dotz Nano ADR represents 100 ordinary DTZ shares on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). The two securities generally trade very close to parity once the ADR ratio and foreign exchange aspects are accounted for.

An ADR is a negotiable certificate issued by a depositary bank to represent a specific number of shares of a foreign company traded on a U.S. exchange. An ADS (American Depositary Share) is the share issued under the ADR agreement which is actually traded.

Dotz Nano ADRs can be purchased through a typical broker, just as you would buy U.S. securities. You cannot buy ADRs directly from Dotz Nano.

  1. Converting ordinary shares into ADRs can be done through an investment advisor or broker. To convert your ordinary shares into ADRs:
    You need to transfer your ordinary DTZ shares to BNY Mellon’s local custodian, HSBC Bank Australia Limited (SWIFT BIC: HKBAAU2SSYD, CHESS PID: 20057, Safekeeping Account: 011-552130-068). This process is usually completed by your broker via an electronic CHESS transfer, or broker transfer form. Your broker should be able to assist with this.
  2. HSBC also requires the U.S. ADR delivery instructions to accompany any deposit of ordinary shares. This information should be sent via email to and should include details of the institution where the ADRs will be delivered to in the U.S. market (i.e., institution / broker name & DTC acct. info).
  3. Once BNY Mellon receives confirmation from HSBC that your underlying ordinary shares have been deposited, new ADRs are issued and delivered to your nominated U.S. broker, in accordance with the ADR program’s Deposit Agreement.

ADR issuers generally have full information in English about themselves on their websites. ADRs listed on U.S. exchanges provide holders with the same level of information as any other U.S. security with trading information readily available.

A registered holder is one whose name appears on the books of the depositary. The registered holder is considered the owner of the record. A beneficial holder is one whose holdings are registered in a name other than his or her own, such as the name of the broker, bank, or nominee.

For registered owners, ownership is registered by the depositary bank and is evidenced by an account statement provided by the depositary. Registered owners can hold physical ADR certificates.
