Q3 Why was IIJ "dually" listed on both the NASDAQ market and the Tokyo Stock Exchange?

IIJ first listed on the NASDAQ market as that was where Internet-related companies were listed and the U.S. was ahead of Japan in that field. After listing on the U.S. NASDAQ Stock Market, IIJ decided to list on the Tokyo Stock Exchange as most of IIJ's client base is in Japan and we strongly felt the need to increase our name value.
