New Upcoming Webinar: Evaluating Listing Options in a Global Market

Share Article

BNA International is organising a new webinar on 10th May titled, "Evaluating Listing Options in a Global Market". In this incisive webinar Mark S Bergman, Peter Brien and Benita Yu will give an expert insight into what needs to be considered when making a decision to list in another market - with a particular focus on the consequences of making such a listing.

There is an increasing trend to list in a "foreign" market as a primary listing. Some companies are seeking a reduction in the cost of capital. Others are looking for greater depth in terms of liquidity, greater research coverage or visibility. And in the past year, there has been an increasing focus on the Asian securities markets, with motivation ranging from broadening a presence in, or signalling a commitment to, these markets to perceived benefits in terms of valuations.

What are the benefits - and downsides - of listing in a foreign market?

In a new webinar from BNA International, Evaluating Listing Options in a Global Market, Mark S Bergman, co-head of the Global Securities and Capital Markets Group at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, Peter Brien, partner of Slaughter and May, based in London and Benita Yu, partner of Slaughter and May, based in Hong Kong will give an expert insight into what needs to be considered when making a decision to list in another market - with a particular focus on the consequences of making such a listing.

Evaluating Listing Options in a Global Market will help listeners understand more fully the pros and cons of the full range of listing options - a range of options which is increasing.

By registering for the webinar, listeners will be able to obtain specialist insight into:
