Through our partnership with Citi, we look forward to further growing our ADR program and expanding our outreach to the global investment community.”

“KEPCO’s decision to select Citi as its depositary bank is a reflection of our strong track record and experience in supporting Korean ADR issuers,” said Dirk Jones, Head of Global Issuer Services at Citi. “We are confident that we can leverage the breadth of Citi’s global presence and investor relations expertise to assist in raising KEPCO’s profile.”
