There are different options regadering the proportion in which you give out depositary receipts: 1:1, 1:2, 1:5, 1:10, 1:20, 1:25, 1:50, 1:100, 1:1000. When making a choice it is important to take into account how many people will participate and what the value of a share is. For instance, if a share is valued at €100 and you want to keep the threshold for people to participate low, you could choose to give out 100 depositary receipts per share. Then a depositary receipt will be valued at €1. This does mean that the distribution that comes in on that share will be divided over 100 depositary receipts.
