As headline grabbing actions around TikTok, StaynTouch, Grindr, and PatientsLikeMe demonstrate, the risks associated with foreign investment in the U.S. have substantially increased. New regulations significantly tightened the rules governing overseas investment into U.S. businesses in 2020, dramatically expanding the circumstances in which pre-investment notification to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) is either mandatory or recommended. This session will cover when foreign investments in the U.S. may trigger mandatory pre-transaction notification requirements, and when voluntary notification may be advisable; the impact of the recent increased focus on security of sensitive personal data; why understanding U.S. export controls is now essential to the CFIUS analysis; the key steps and timelines for making a CFIUS filing; the consequences of not making a filing when required or recommended; and key recommendations for investment due diligence and planning.
