Guilder Share

A share in any of a number of Dutch companies that are not allowed to trade outside Holland. A guilder share would not be remarkable except that Dutch regulations do not even allow it to simply be bought and incorporated into an international depository receipt or IDR. As a result, when an IDR buys shares in these companies, the shares are canceled and guilder shares are issued in their stead.
