UBA has run a bifurcated GDR programme since 8 May 1998 under the CUSIPs 90953F104 (144A), symbol UBAFYP and 90953F203 (Reg S).

The GDRs also trade, clear and settle according to international market conventions rather than those prevalent in Nigeria.

Dividends are paid in US dollars.

Investors receive annual reports and proxy materials in English.

The GDRs are traded Over-The-Counter. The ratio between the ordinary share and the GDR is 1:200.
