Abstract: The aim of this paper is twofold. First, we try to understand the reasons that explain the decision made by companies with UK cross-listing to cross-list their shares in the US. Second, we study the impact of cross-listing on value creation. Our results shown that the motivations for such decision are related to the improvement of stock price informativeness and investor protection interests. Firms may also be motivated by reasons related to the global business strategy. However, the commitment to additional higher disclosure requirements and geographic proximity act negatively on the decision to cross-list. By applying a methodology taking into account the endogeneity of the cross-listing decision, we found results that support the positive effect of cross-listing on performance. The finding also revealed the existence of an indirect impact of the cross-listing decision through its determinants on performance.
