    This is what the PR post says -
    Siemens plans to continue its American Depositary Receipt Program on the basis of a so-called "sponsored Level I-Program". This program allows for investors to continue holding Siemens shares in the form of ADR. Once Siemens has delisted from the NYSE, Siemens will apply for deregistration with the SEC and for termination of its reporting obligations under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

     

    Does the above mean that we can continue to hold the ADRs. Once they have been delisted from NYSE they will trade OTC ?

     

    thanks
