Dividends paid by the Yara ADR could have taxes withheld by the Norwegian government. Depending on your individual circumstances, any foreign taxes withheld may be able to be applied as a credit against U.S. taxes. You should consult with your own tax advisor as to the specific tax consequences to you of any withheld tax.

The registrar or transfer agent keeps a record of every outstanding share certificate and the name of the person to whom it is registered. When registered shares change hands, the registrar transfers the ownership of the share from the seller’s name to the buyer’s name. The registrar reconciles all transfer records and makes sure that the number of shares debited is equal to the number of shares credited. Yara's registrar in Norway is DNB Bank while JP Morgan Chase is the depository bank in the US.

The par value ("pålydende") of the Yara share is NOK 1.70.
