By integrating signaling research with an institutional perspective we examine how country of
origin, corporate governance, and host market effects impact foreign IPO performance. Using a
sample of 202 foreign IPOs listed in the U.S. or U.K in 2002-2007 results indicate both the legal

IPO market impacts the salience of country and corporate governance signals for foreign IPO
firms suggesting a more contextualized framework of IPO valuation is necessary.
