Dorsey & Whitney has prepared a guide aimed at providing a comparative regulatory overview for companies which are considering listing equity securities on one or more of the principal markets in Hong Kong, London, New York or Toronto. The guide compares the criteria which issuers must meet to gain admission to the respective markets, as well as the ongoing financial reporting and corporate governance obligations imposed on issuers by each market. The guide will be of interest not only to companies but also to advisers specialising in equity capital markets.
