How to hold Solvay shares?

    Solvay ordinary shares can be held as:

    • Dematerialized shares: your shares remain with your financial intermediary, who manages them.

    • Registered shares: your shares are registered in Solvay Register, and managed by Solvay Registered Shares Management Service. This type of holding shares enables you to benefit from different advantages.

    • American Depositary Receipts (ADRs): your shares remain with your financial intermediary or with the ADR Depositary Bank (Citi), depending on your choice
