3:00 PM - 3:55 PM (JST), Tuesday, March 5, 2019 ・ 2nd Floor
New national security regulations in the United States are changing the landscape for cross-border investments in biotechnology. In November 2018, new rules for a “pilot program” apply to foreign investors into U.S. companies who now need to file with the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) to approve covered transactions before entering licensing deals or other equity investments. This session will update market participants on the evolving national security review process and its impact on the biotechnology industry, as well as consider how additional rules may impact future business development and investment opportunities.
