What is the difference between A shares and R shares?The difference between A and R shares is in their voting rights. One A share entitles its shareholder to one vote, whereas ten R shares are needed for one vote. Each shareholder is though entitled to at least one vote. The same dividend is paid to both A and R shares.
What does conversion of A shares into R shares mean?Conversion of A shares into R shares is voluntary: shares will be converted only upon the request of a shareholder or, if the shares are registered in the name of a nominee, upon the request of the nominee entered in the book-entry register. Shareholders who do not want to convert their A shares into R shares do not have to take any action.
