NEW YORK, June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BNY Mellon, the global leader in investment management and investment services, has been appointed by Severn Trent Plc as sponsored depositary bank for its American Depositary Receipt (ADR) program. Previously, Severn Trent traded as an unsponsored ADR program serviced by multiple depositaries. Each Severn Trent ADR represents one ordinary share and trades on the OTCQX platform under the symbol "STRNY." Severn Trent's local shares trade on the London Stock Exchange under the code "SVT" and are a constituent of the FTSE 100 share index.
Severn Trent has two businesses: Severn Trent Water, which provides water and sewerage services to 4.2 million households and businesses in the U.K., and Severn Trent Services, a U.S.-headquartered supplier of water and waste water treatment solutions with a growing presence in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
"We established this sponsored ADR to enhance our U.S. investor relations efforts," said John Crosse, head of investor relations for Severn Trent. "We look forward to working with BNY Mellon's staff as they help us expand our shareholder base and visibility in the U.S. capital market."
"We'll work closely with Severn Trent's management team to help it realize the added benefits of a sponsored ADR program," said Michael Cole-Fontayn, CEO of BNY Mellon's Depositary Receipts business. "Global investors can now access 85% of the FTSE 100 constituents in ADR form, offering them an easy and efficient way to trade the large companies which comprise that index."
