What are the benefits of ADRs to US investors?

Some U.S. investors may prefer to purchase ADRs rather than voting shares in the issuer’s home market because ADRs are traded, cleared and settled in US Dollars and in compliance to U.S. market conventions. ADRs allow easy comparison to securities of similar companies as well as access to price and trading information. ADRs holders also receive dividends in US dollars (if applicable).
