What form does HUTCHMED’s HKEX quotation take?

HUTCHMED’s ordinary shares are traded on the HKEX in the form of ordinary shares.

What form does HUTCHMED’s AIM quotation take?

HUTCHMED’s ordinary shares are traded on AIM and trades are settled electronically through the CREST system in the form of depositary interests (“DIs”). HUTCHMED’s ordinary shares traded on AIM are held by a depositary, Computershare Investor Services PLC (“Computershare”). Computershare issues DIs representing the underlying ordinary shares on a one-for-one basis and maintains a register of DI holders. The corresponding ordinary shares are held by Computershare on trust for the holders of DIs.

What are CREST and DIs?

CREST is a paperless settlement procedure enabling securities to be evidenced other than by a certificate and transferred other than by a written instrument, so that trades can settle electronically. Securities issued by non-U.K. companies, such as the ordinary shares of HUTCHMED, cannot be directly held or transferred under the CREST system, which is why DIs are required.

A DI is a facility created to enable HUTCHMED’s ordinary shares to be delivered, held and settled under the CREST system. Each DI will be treated as one ordinary share for the purposes of determining, for example, entitlement to dividends, voting rights, participation in pre-emptive follow-on offerings and returns of capital. DIs are a common feature of the AIM market and are used by many non-U.K. AIM companies.

What form does the U.S. listing take?

HUTCHMED’s ordinary shares are traded on Nasdaq in the form of American depositary shares (“ADSs”). As a result, a portion of HUTCHMED’s ordinary shares are held by its ADS depositary bank, Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas (“Deutsche Bank”), which ordinary shares underly the ADSs held by U.S. shareholders. The ADSs are a common feature used by non-U.S. companies on the Nasdaq Stock Market.

What is an ADS?

An ADS represents ownership of shares in a non-U.S. corporation. ADSs are quoted and traded in U.S. dollars in the U.S. securities markets. ADS dividends are paid to investors in U.S. dollars. ADSs were specifically designed to facilitate the purchase, holding and sale of non-U.S. securities by U.S. investors.

What is an ADS/Ordinary Share ratio?

This ratio reflects the number of ordinary shares that correspond to one ADS. In the case of HUTCHMED, each ADR represents five ordinary shares.

What are HUTCHMED’s CUSIP and ISIN numbers?

Ordinary Share ISIN:
Ordinary Share CUSIP:
G4672N 119

DI ISIN: KYG4672N1198  
(same as the Ordinary Share)


What does a depositary do?

A depositary is an entity which facilitates cross-border trading of an issuer’s shares. Among other things, depositaries provide ADS and DI issuance and cancellation services, and associated share transfer services such as maintaining the register of ADS or DI holders, distributing dividends to ADS and DI holders, providing annual meeting services and executing corporate actions. So, in practice, Deutsche Bank and Computershare, as the depositaries, maintain records of the holders of ADSs and DIs, respectively, and manage the flow of shares between the two separate markets, essentially converting DIs into ADSs when there is demand in the U.S., and converting ADSs back into DIs when there is demand for the DIs in the U.K. This service facilitates liquidity between the two markets with the objective that any price differential between the two markets is kept to a minimum.

How does the purchase and sale of ordinary shares, ADSs and DIs work in practice?

You can buy ordinary shares, ADSs or DIs through a broker, just as you would any other Hong Kong, U.S. or U.K. security. When you instruct your broker to buy HUTCHMED’s ordinary shares on your behalf, your broker will have the option of buying ordinary shares on HKEX, ADSs on Nasdaq or DIs on AIM. Conversely, when you wish to sell your position, your broker will either sell them on HKEX, Nasdaq or AIM. Any necessary conversion of securities would first be effected in the manner described below. In any event, this would be a seamless process for shareholders. Unless shareholders particularly wish to give specific instructions in that regard (in which case they are free to do so), they will not need to be concerned with which market their shares are purchased from or sold into. Brokers will simply buy or sell in the market where there is the most liquidity at that time.

Can holders of HUTCHMED securities on HKEX, Nasdaq or AIM invest in HUTCHMED securities listed on one or both of the other stock exchanges or convert from one type of security to another?

Yes, it is permissible for holders of ordinary shares, ADSs or DIs to purchase HUTCHMED’s other securities (for example, an ADS holder may purchase DIs and/or ordinary shares through its broker) or to convert some or all of their HUTCHMED securities from ordinary shares, DIs or ADSs into one of its other listed securities.  The conversion process is described in further detail below. We would advise that shareholders seek advice from their broker and/or tax adviser.
