  7. 7. Possible Reasons for Cross Listing <ul><li>By cross-listing and selling its shares on a foreign stock exchange a firm typically tries to accomplish one or more of the following objectives: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Improve the liquidity of its existing shares and support a liquid secondary market for new equity issues in the foreign market. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Increase its share price by overcoming mispricing in a segmented and illiquid home market </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Increase the firm’s visibility and political acceptance to its customers, suppliers, creditors & host governments </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Establish a secondary market for shares used for acquisitions in foreign country </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Create a secondary market for shares that can be used to compensate local management and employees in foreign subsidiaries </li></ul></ul>

  9. 9. ADRs <ul><li>An ADR is a dollar-denominated negotiable certificate that represents ownership of shares in a non-U.S. company. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The structure of an ADR includes a ratio, which correlates the amount of underlying shares to the receipt. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ratio: the number of underlying shares represented by one American Depositary Receipt (ADR:Shares) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The ratio is typically depicted as, for example, 1:3, where one ADR represents three underlying shares. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Or, if the home share price is very high, for example, a 2:1 ratio would indicate two ADRs representing one underlying share (might also be expressed as 1:0.5). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>ADR web site: </li></ul>
