In the recent past years, in light of the growing interest of certain non-EU investors (in particular China) for acquiring EU targets, foreign investment control regulations were made stricter in certain EU countries. This trend has even considerably accelerated in the past months as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, also prompted by the EU Commission public call for implementing such restrictions. No doubt that this will have a growing impact on the European cross-border M&A market in particular in terms of choices of buyers and transaction timeline. Together with our partners at CMS, we would like to discuss with you your experiences and best practices to adapt to these regulations in M&A transactions.
