The U.S. continues to attract foreign investment at an unparalleled rate (to the tune of more than $225 billion in 2010). U.S. entities that find themselves across the bargaining table from foreign investors should consider the potential impact that review by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) may have on their prospective transaction. Failure to understand CFIUS’s mission and process can threaten a transaction and deprive your company of a valuable injection of foreign capital.
