ATLANTA, July 27 Craneware, Inc. (AIM: CRW.L, CRWRY), the market leader in automated revenue integrity solutions that improve healthcare providers' financial performance, is pleased to announce the launch of its American Depositary Receipt (ADR) program.
Each Craneware ADR represents two ordinary shares and trades on the Over-the-Counter (OTC) market. Craneware's ordinary shares trade on the London Stock Exchange.
An ADR is a negotiable U.S. certificate representing ownership of shares in a non-U.S. corporation. ADRs trade and settle in the U.S. in dollars; dividends are also paid to investors in U.S. dollars. ADRs facilitate the purchase, holding and sale of non-U.S. securities by U.S. investors and provide a corporate finance vehicle for non-U.S. companies. ADRs can be held in book-entry form or as a physical certificate.
Founded in 1999, Scotland-based Craneware serves more than 1,000 U.S. healthcare facilities of all sizes, from critical access hospitals to integrated delivery networks. The company's strategic pricing, revenue cycle and supply management solutions help improve financial performance for U.S. hospitals and healthcare organizations.
Keith Neilson, CEO of Craneware plc, commented: "We are pleased to be able to provide this new facility which will allow easier access to Craneware securities by our U.S. employees and U.S. investors who have found it difficult to trade outside the U.S. markets. It will also serve to enhance our U.S. visibility, supporting our ongoing expansion strategy."
BNY Mellon, the global leader in asset management and securities servicing, has been appointed by Craneware as the depositary bank for its ADR program.
"BNY Mellon will use its many resources to develop a mutually beneficial partnership with Craneware and its investors," said Michael Cole-Fontayn, chief executive officer of BNY Mellon's Depositary Receipts business. "We look forward to helping Craneware unlock the investment potential of the U.S. investor community," he said.
