At the 2018 Global Corporate Growth Summit held earlier this year in New York, an expert panel convened to discuss current issues affecting cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M&A). The panel was moderated by Sonali Basak, a corporate financial reporter with Bloomberg, and the participants included Steve Klemencic, managing director, Ankura; Euan Rellie, co-founder and managing partner, BDA Partners; Nicholas Assef, founder and principal, LCC Asia Pacific; Farhad Jalinous, partner and chairman of national security practice, White & Case; Claudia Iannazzo, managing partner and co-founder, AlphaPrime Ventures; and Ceasar N. Anquillare, chairman and CEO, Winchester Capital.
In this dynamic roundtable, our discussion centered around the following topics:
- Sensitive technology, the focus of the new Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) law
- Chinese companies under scrutiny
- Private equity reactions
- Outlook for M&A under CFIUS
In this report, we discuss the insights and reflections of M&A stalwarts who participated in the roundtable. We hope the report is informative and proves valuable to you. As always, we encourage you to share your thoughts on the subject of globalization and transnational deal making with us.
