How to purchase ADRs
To purchase Sanofi ADRs, shareholders may contact a licensed stockbroker or may buy directly from our ADR depository bank, JPMorgan Chase, through a Direct Purchase Plan. The Plan provides first-time purchasers and existing shareholders of Sanofi ADSs with a convenient and economical way to invest in Sanofi. Participants can enjoy the same benefits as an investor who holds physical certificates; they remain the registered owner of the shares and have full control over their investment decisions.
Income Tax Information
ADR dividends are paid in U.S. dollars and are generally taxable, just like dividends on U.S. shares. In addition, the Republic of France, Sanofi’s home country, may withhold taxes. Depending on individual circumstances, foreign taxes withheld might be applied as a credit against U.S. taxes, or tax reclaim opportunities may be offered. For specific information, consult your tax adviser.
