What is an American Depositary Receipt (ADR)?

An American Depositary Receipt (ADR) is a negotiable instrument that represents ownership in securities of a non-US company; it is a mechanism designed to facilitate US trading of non-US securities.

ADRs are quoted and traded in US dollars in the US securities market. Also, the dividends, if any, are paid to investors in US dollars.

What is an American Depositary Share?

An American Depositary Share (ADS) is a US dollar-denominated share, evidenced by an ADR, which represents a specified number of underlying shares held in custody in the UK.

An ADR is the actual receipt that is issued by a depositary bank representing ownership of a company's underlying ordinary shares. An ADR can represent any number of ADSs. The term "ADR" is often used to mean both the receipt and the securities themselves.
