Many South African companies are also listed on international exchanges, such as in the U.S. Filings from companies with their 'Principal executive offices' located in South Africa can be accessed on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's EDGAR (Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval) system. The Frankfurt Stock Exchange is also a popular listing for South Africa-linked companies for which you can view specific profiles, along with relevant news and announcements, similar to the JSE.
