Abstract

As companies seek to expand into the international markets, the need to finance that expansion and to gain international investor and consumer interest increasingly causes such companies to turn to the international capital markets vchich, today, are dominated by the capital markets of the United States, Europe and Japan. This article discusses the major legal issues under United States securities laws, confronting a non-North American company, referred to throughout as a ’foreign company’ or ’foreign issuer’, which seeks to raise either equity or debt capital from the public in the United States.
