The main reason why companies would want to get listed in the US is because of access to capital. By market cap, the country has the two biggest stock exchanges in the world: the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and NASDAQ have over US$20 trillion and US$10 trillion, respectively.
Liquidity and credibility are other reasons to pursue a listing in the USA. Liquidity poses less risk for buyers. Credibility, on the other hand, boosts the trustworthiness of your company.
While it is not easy to get listed in the USA, the requirements are not as strict and the regulations are not overbearing as other countries.
