American Depositary Receipts (ADRs)

In the US, the Company's Ordinary Shares are traded in the form of American Depositary Shares ("ADSs") evidenced by ADRs, and trade on the NYSE under the symbol SNN. J.P. Morgan Chase Bank N.A. is the authorised depositary bank for the Company's ADR programme. If you are an ADR holder and require further information, please contact J.P. Morgan Chase Bank N.A. on +1-800-990-1135 (toll free) or online. Visit and select 'Contact Us'.

For those holders not registered because their shares are held through a 'Street name' (nominee account), your nominee will receive company documents from time to time from J.P. Morgan Chase Bank N.A. 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 depository bank at general meetings. 

On 14 October 2014, a ratio change was implemented to reflect that one ADS represents two Ordinary Shares. Historically, the ratio of underlying shares represented by ADRs changed from one ADR being equal to ten Ordinary Shares to one ADR being equal to five Ordinary Shares on 15 December 2003.
