SEC's Corporation Finance Recommends Changes to Cross-Border Tender Offer Rules

The SEC's Division of Corporation Finance said today that it has completed its review of the Commission's cross-border tender, exchange offer and business combination rules, and has prepared recommendations for consideration by the Commission.  The cross-border tender offer rules apply to offers for the securities of foreign companies that have U.S. security holders.

Director of Corporation Finance John White said that the goal of the review was to determine whether changes could be made that would facilitate the ability of U.S. investors to exercise their rights in connection with cross-border mergers and acquisitions. This review included looking at areas of conflict and inconsistency with foreign regulations and practice that are frequently encountered in cross-border business combinations and that result in U.S. investors being excluded from these transactions.
