In 2001 SEC IR made this comment about a US listing:

US listing requires enormous amount of accounting work. Currently SEC is running almost hundreds of overseas subsidiaries. To meet the listing requirement, each subsidiaries' Financial Statement must be reconciled with US GAAP. To be able to do so in ongoing basis, we are working on to establish accounting systems these days. Other than the accounting issue, we have to look into the semiconductor cycle carefully to maximize the upside potential of US listing. (09, July, 2001)
