Common and preferred stocks of SEC are listed on the Korea Stock Exchange under No. 05930 and No. 05935 respectively. Global Depository Receipt (GDR) is listed on London Stock Exchange.

Reciprocal conversion between DR and stock has been allowed from 2000 and you can find out more about this on The Korea Securities Depository website.

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)
