Foreign direct investments (FDI) reviews in the US are on the rise especially for international technology transactions. This is to a great extent due to the surge in outbound investments from China which is pursuing a declared strategy to use FDI to leapfrog technology development. These developments increasingly give rise to national security concerns. CFIUS’ reviews in the United States are at the forefront of this development and have become showstoppers not only for direct investments into the US but also for foreign-to-foreign transactions that mainly affect other G20 countries. We are also experiencing an increasing trend towards stricter FDI reviews in the EU and Germany.
During this event we will discuss the current developments in the regulatory FDI landscape, its implications on M&A deal terms and will explore how to navigate through an increasingly challenging environment in order to successfully close a deal.
