JDR Listing on Tokyo Stock Exchange Workshop 2014

In the United States and Europe, depositary receipts such as ADRs and GDRs have been commonly used to list shares of foreign companies on stock exchanges for a long time. Listing depositary receipts is one of the effective fund-raising mechanisms for foreign companies. JDR (Japanese Depositary Receipt) is a Japanese version of such a depositary receipt and an effective scheme to list shares of foreign companies on Tokyo Stock Exchange.
In order to provide an understanding of the JDR scheme, we invite those involved in services for listing of shares of foreign companies to the “JDR Listing on Tokyo Stock Exchange Workshop 2014.”
