28 Aug 2006

We have updated our Database of Statistics that, we believe, provide clear evidence of the globalisation of the world's capital markets and of the need for global financial reporting standards.

The latest updates reflect new data on the number of non-US companies registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commission: 1,236 non-US companies from 53 countries were registered at 31 December 2005: Additionally, 684 foreign companies whose securities trade in the US claim exemption from SEC registration because they are registered in, and file comparable information in, their home jurisdiction or another jurisdiciton. Here is the List at 21 June 2005 (399k).
