The changes introduced by the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act of 2018 (FIRRMA) to the review by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) of foreign investment in the United States have been dramatic. The new rules introduced mandatory filings in certain controlling or noncontrolling investments involving “critical technology,” and foreign government–controlled acquisitions and the number of blocked transactions and subsequent reviews of non-notified transactions have increased significantly, with some resulting in forced divestiture.

Many US technology companies now need to address novel issues when considering even noncontrolling investments from foreign investors, which may affect their fundraising options.

Join us for a webinar where we will discuss how technology companies and their foreign investors can successfully navigate these complex rules.
