Cross-border listing is an effective vehicle for increasing demand by overseas retail investors, who currently invest in U.S. equities. Also, there are very favorable tax laws for German investors who invest their own currency and hold securities longer than twelve months.

Liquidity Studies suggest that increased liquidity can inspire market makers to compete with the new market to the lower bid/ask spreads. Companies see that a shift in order-flow and trading activity to the new market benefit most investors. Market capitalization and trading volume are important factors. Also, a targeted equity offering through a new share placement may ensure deeper liquidity. Raising Capital A cross-border listing can help a company target new shareholders for fresh capital.

However, not all cross-border listings must be accompanied by a share placement. There's always the possibility that a share placement might affect liquidity and share price. In any placement it is always important to consider the local market's beta. Foreign companies listing in the U.S. typically lower their global financing costs, but this is not necessarily the case for U.S. companies listing their shares elsewhere.
