Investment with Borders: Restrictions on Foreign Investment in U.S. Businesses Under Trump Administration

Events < 1 minute read

June 21, 2019
12 pm – 1:30 pm EST
Toronto

Last year, the U.S. government significantly expanded the powers of its interagency committee, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), to review foreign acquisitions of and investment in U.S. businesses.

Non-U.S. companies that seek to acquire or invest in U.S. businesses may now have an obligation to obtain CFIUS approval for both controlling and non-controlling, non-passive investment. Certain technology transfers outside the United States will also be restricted. Investment in critical technology faces particular scrutiny.
The expanded authority makes it imperative for foreign companies seeking to acquire or invest in U.S. businesses to take a proactive approach towards compliance.
The presentation will cover these and other key issues:

  • What are the new CFIUS requirements?
  • What transactions are covered?
  • Which industries are targeted?
  • How should foreign companies comply with the new requirements?
