INTRODUCTION
Infosys is small software development venture which provides information technology (IT) consulting services for international clients. The   company is located in Bangalore and was founded back in 1981 by a small group of skillful entrepreneurs, with very little equity of 1000$ and without backing from a large companies.

The company also needed to be seen as a “True” competitor of foreign companies like Cambridge Technology Partners in US and an ADR(American depository receipt)offering in the US will allow the company to accomplish that goal.
* ADR will also help Infosys achieve other goals such as – recruitment of International employees. This would provide flexibility to the company and they can offer a compensation package in US Dollar.
* The would also provide currency for acquisitions in the US or any other international localities.
* The current investors of the company will also gain a s 26% of investors are from US and other international localities. The company is aiming to help them by getting government approval to allow foreign investors to convert existing shares in ADRs.

According to me the company be listed on NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) because NYSE is much more known to people than NASDAQ. And if the company wants to grow it gets the good opportunity to the company to advertise its company to the customers.
