CFIUS Filings: 50% Increase Over Prior Year (’14 v. ’13)

Just loving the Cooley’s new “M&A Blog.” Here’s an excerpt from a Cooley blog about a comparison of the number of CFIUS filings between 2014 & 2013:

The new data released by CFIUS reveal that 2014 saw a dramatic jump in the number of cross-border M&A and other investment transactions reported to CFIUS as compared to 2013 (the Committee received 147 transaction Notices in 2014, up from 97 deals reported in 2013). For the third year in a row, Chinese acquirers were involved in more reported transactions than investors from any other country.
