[November Webinar] Recent tightening of investment regulations (CFIUS) by the United States and its impact on Japanese overseas M&A activity.
Overseas M&A by Japanese companies has been on a marked increase in recent years. With overseas M&A transactions, companies must deal with enormous volume, complex country specific laws and regulations, and be familiar with relevant sanctions to avoid violations that may result in high penalties in comparison to domestic M&A.
In this seminar, we will provide an overview of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), which is an interagency committee authorized to review certain transactions involving foreign investment in the United States to determine the effect on national security. We will explain what kind of analysis and risk judgments should be considered when conducting overseas M&A transactions.
Additionally, the CFIUS investigation process has been referred to as a “black box" process within the industry since the types of examinations and dispositions by authorities are not publicly shared. As such, onsite and practical guidance provided by legal counsel is critically important and will be discussed during this seminar.
