Greg Bell"Seeking Capital Abroad: Motivations, Process, and Suggestions for Success"

In the Author's Words
The accelerating pace of global capital market integration in the last two decades has had a profound impact on the strategies pursued by companies, including their strategies for accessing capital resources outside of their home markets. Today’s cross-border capital flows take a variety of forms, including overseas IPOs, foreign direct investment, cross-border acquisitions, cross listings, and foreign portfolio investment.

In this article, we discuss the corporate motives and other factors that have contributed to this growth in the international capital-raising activity of companies around the world. Although the U.S. and U.K. exchanges have been the top host markets and continue to capture over half of all foreign listings, we highlight several new stock exchanges that have seen considerable growth in cross-border listings in recent years. But even with all the growth in international capital raising activity, companies often face considerable obstacles in their attempts to source capital outside of their home markets. We discuss the most common of these obstacles and offer a number of suggestions for companies attempting to overcome the liabilities they face as foreign firms in host capital markets.
