CCH Goes Global With Daily Capital Changes Coverage

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., February 1, 2000) – Responding to increasing investor interest in the global diversification of security holdings, CCH INCORPORATED (CCH) is now offering daily capital changes information on more than 2,200 companies with equity securities that are either American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) or global equity securities. CCH, a leading provider of financial, securities and business law information, is providing this timely new information as part of its new service, ADR/Global Capital Changes Daily.

CCH’s line of Capital Changes products, available via print, the Internet, Lotus Notes and direct data feed, provide the most authoritative and comprehensive information to securities, tax and investment professionals who need to compute a security holder’s gain or loss from capital changes.

Offering a significant expansion of equity coverage, ADR/Global Capital Changes Daily provides the same detailed information – now provided for U.S. domestic companies by CCH’s Capital Changes products – on foreign companies whose stock is traded in the U.S. on the NYSE, NASDAQ-ASE or traded over-the- counter.

"Information on these securities can be difficult to obtain and the transactions are complex. The content and ease and speed of delivery provided by ADR/Global Capital Changes Daily represent a very high level of value-added information for professionals who rely on capital changes information," said CCH Business and Finance Group marketing manager Peggy Hayner.

With this new comprehensive daily coverage, professionals have access to information about foreign companies registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission whose corporate actions have federal income tax consequences and require specialized reporting of facts, figures and tax treatment.

Unlike their counterparts in the U.S., where companies trading OTC can often be small, start-up companies that would not qualify for listing on one of the exchanges, ADRs and Canadian companies traded OTC include major firms, some of which may be partly or even wholly-owned by their government.

An ADR is created when a security from a foreign market is deposited with a bank located in the U.S. (the depositary). Then, the depositary bank issues certificates in the U.S. that represent and are backed by the deposited securities. It is these certificates that trade in the U.S.

Global stocks are securities that trade simultaneously in the U.S. and in their home country.

"At the moment almost all global stocks are Canadian. Daimler Chrysler, however, was the first major issue outside of Canada to use this structure and more are expected to follow," said Hayner.
