About the Conference

Obtain Invaluable Insights on Repositioning Your Transaction Planning

The CFIUS Sector is preparing for a robust review. President Joe Biden signed an Executive Order with an aim to “Ensure Robust Reviews of Evolving National Security Risks by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States,” released September 2022. The EO directs CFIUS to consider transactions through five lenses. How will this new approach affect CFIUS transactions?

CFIUS will be more closely scrutinizing how transactions effect the resiliency of U.S. supply chains, technology, national security, cybersecurity, and persons sensitive data. This comes as the evolving CFIUS regulations are creating an environment of assessment, review, execution, and post-closing supervision that is far more complex than we have seen in CFIUS’s 30+ year history. As such, it is now critically important for global businesses to have access to the knowledge needed to make crucial decisions.

In this critical time for dealmakers and foreign investment, we invite you to join your peers at American Conference Institute’s 10th National Conference on CFIUS. Widely regarded as the premier event for the CFIUS bar, this conference will provide invaluable insights on repositioning your transaction planning amidst this rapidly evolving landscape.

ACI’s CFIUS conferences continuously feature an impressive lineup of leaders from government, industry and private practice who provide the insight and analysis needed by dealmakers to navigate increasingly complicated rules and to get deals done in today’s challenging environment.
