ANZ's ADRs were originally listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on 6 December 1994.
On 20 June 2007, ANZ announced its intention to withdraw this listing and to fully deregister from the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) ongoing reporting obligations. The ADR’s were delisted from the NYSE as of 12 July 2007, and moved to a Level 1 Sponsored Program pursuant to which it is possible for the ADR’s to be traded in the over-the-counter securities market on the OTC Link LLC electronic platform operated by OTC Markets Group Inc in the United States.
The SEC deregistration became effective in October 2007. Further details are set out in the following ANZ press releases:

On 3 January 2023, ANZ implemented a non-operating holding company (NOHC) structure, whereby ANZ Group Holdings Limited became the parent entity of the ANZ Group by way of an Australian scheme of arrangement (NOHC Restructure).
As a result of the NOHC Restructure, holders of ADRs representing ordinary shares of Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited (ANZBGL) received one ADR representing one ordinary share of ANZ Group Holdings Limited for each ANZBGL ADR that they held.
In connection with the NOHC Restructure, the deposit agreement governing the ANZBGL ADRs was terminated. All references on this website to ANZ ADRs are to the ADRs representing ordinary shares of ANZ Group Holdings Limited, unless context otherwise requires.
For more information regarding the NOHC Restructure, see ANZ 2022 Scheme Meeting.
