  1. I own the A shares. Bought through Schwab and I did not pay any stock fee and they did not take out any taxes on the last dividend.

    1. bill–yes it is k-1. Not sure on the taxes withheld–it is Bermuda domiciled.

    2. Should not be a foreign stock fee but some brokerages will get it wrong while if is trading on an OTC ticker. Case by case, day by day. Vanguard usually has it straightened out by 2nd or 3rd day of trading.

      Once is trading NYSE there should be no foreign stock fee. But some brokerages may still get it wrong.
