For American Depositary Share (ADS) holders

Takeda American Depositary Shares (ADS) are listed on the NYSE.

Please note that 2 ADSs represent 1 ordinary share, and therefore the ADS dividend amount is ½ of the ordinary share amount. The final US Dollar dividend amount will only become known at the timing of payment when our ADS Depositary, the Bank of New York Mellon, exchanges the dividends from Japanese Yen to US Dollars for ADS holders. The final USD amount will be stated on the Bank of New York Mellon’s website.

Registered holders can reach out to Bank of New York Mellon’s transfer agent, CPU (Computershare) for additional information, whereas the beneficial ADS holders holding through their brokers should reach out to their respective brokers for more information. [email protected]

Registered holders can also reach out to CPU via the following:
