NEW YORK and BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, May 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BNY Mellon, a global leader in investment management and investment services, has been chosen by Grupo Supervielle S.A. as depositary bank for the listing and offering of its American depositary receipts (ADRs). The new listing marks the first ADR capital raising by an Argentine company in 2016. Each Grupo Supervielle ADR represents five class B shares and trades on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol 'SUPV.' The company's ordinary class B shares trade on the MERVAL under the code 'SUPV.'
Grupo Supervielle S.A. is a domestically-owned financial group based in Argentina. Controlled by the Supervielle family, which entered the Argentine banking sector in 1887, the company owns Banco Supervielle S.A., a bank with a primary geographic presence in the City of Buenos Aires, the Greater Buenos Aires metropolitan area, Mendoza and San Luis.
"We look forward to working with BNY Mellon to develop our DR program," said Alejandra Naughton, chief financial officer of Grupo Supervielle. "We selected the company because of its focus on the depositary receipt market, and we expect our program to benefit from its specialization and experience."
