10 May 2007

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: 1,145 non-US companies from 53 jurisdictions were registered at 31 December 2006 (compares with 1,236 companies from 53 jurisdictions a year earlier): 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 jurisdiciton or another jurisdiction. Here is the List at 21 June 2005 (399k).
