We last reported to you about Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) activities in connection with the Ralls Corporation case. CFIUS is a multi-agency U.S. government committee charged with reviewing foreign acquisitions of U.S. businesses for national security implications

The committee recently released its unclassified Annual Report to Congress for 2013 regarding its activity during calendar year 2012. My colleague CJ Voss and myself have prepared an analysis of the report, available on our firm’s website. As we explain in our analysis, the report offers important insights for foreign companies that are considering investment and M&A transactions that could raise U.S. national security considerations.
