    Explanation:

    XYZZ ADR = 10% XYZZ ordinary share

    Current price of ordinary shares trade = 400 British pounds

    Dividend to be received on the purchase of $560,000 worth of ADR

    Therefore ;

    To calculate worth of XYZZ ADR

    Dollar value of £400

    400 * 1.4 = $560

    10% of $560 = 10* 560 = $56 per ADR

    Therefore, semiannual Dividend payed :

    £12 / 2 = £6 every 6 months ; which is equivalent to (£6 * 10%) = £0.6 per ADR

    Equivalent dollar value :

    0.6 * $1.4 = $0.84 per ADR

    AMOUNT OF ORDER TO BE PLACED / price per ADR

    $560,000 / $56 = 10,000 shares
