The Bank of New York Mellon has been selected by Gintech Energy Corporation (Gintech) as the depositary bank for its global depositary receipt (GDR) program, which became effective on 19 March 2009.

Each Gintech GDR represents one common share. The common shares are listed on the Taiwan Stock Exchange, under the stock code “3514.” Gintech GDRs and common shares have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 and may not be offered or sold in the U.S. (absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements).

Gintech Energy Corporation designs, manufactures and markets high-performance solar cells used to convert sunlight into electricity. The company is a main provider to solar module manufacturers that assemble and integrate the cells within solar modules and systems. Gintech’s solar cells are used worldwide in products providing reliable and nvironmentally-friendly electric power, including in Germany, Spain, The People’s Republic of China, South Korea, Italy, U.S. and Japan.

“We are delighted to be appointed by Gintech to act as depositary bank for its GDR program and to also be the first depositary bank to launch a DR offering from Asia this year,” says Michael Cole-Fontayn, chief executive officer, Bank of New York Mellon’s Depositary Receipt Division. “We hope that our partnership with Gintech will stimulate capital-raising opportunities for other issuers, and we look forward to taking on that challenge.”
