Jim Hamilton: Is Sarbanes-Oxley Chilling Foreign Issuers from Listing in US?

by Rick Turoczy on July 6, 2006

I have determined that this blog will not shrink from discussing the big macro issues of the impact of securities regulation on the financial markets and the movement of capital. And there is no bigger issue in this regard than the growing evidence that the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and particularly its Sec. 404 internal controls mandates, are chilling foreign private issuers from listing on US exchanges.

The fact is that the number of foreign private issuers peaked at around 1300 just before 2002 and has not moved upward since the passage of Sarbanes-Oxley.
