Unilever shares – the basics

NV and PLC, together with their group companies, operate effectively as a single economic entity.

Our shares - the basics

Unilever N.V. ordinary shares (ISIN NL0000388619) are listed on Euronext Amsterdam and as New York Registry Shares (CUSIP 904784709) on the New York Stock Exchange.

The ordinary shares and the New York Registry Shares are exchangeable on a one-for-one basis. Each NV ordinary share has a nominal value of €0.16.

Unilever PLC ordinary shares (ISIN GB00B10RZP78) and depositary receipts of ordinary shares (ISIN US9047677045) are listed on the London Stock Exchange and as American Depositary Receipts (CUSIP 904767704) on the New York Stock Exchange.

Each ADR represents 1 underlying ordinary PLC share. Each PLC ordinary share has a nominal value of 3 1/9 pence.

The equalisation agreement

The Equalisation Agreement between NV and PLC is such that each Unilever N.V. ordinary share of €0.16 represents the same underlying economic interest in the Unilever Group as each Unilever PLC ordinary share of 3 1/9 pence (safe for exchange rate fluctuations).

Since each PLC ADR in New York represents 1 underlying ordinary PLC share, the equalisation agreement implies, in rounded terms, a ratio of 1 NV New York registry share to 1 PLC ADR.
