Foreign investments in strategic companies: regulatory issues
In 2020, due to the pandemic, we saw the world divided in a way that we have not seen it in decades. Although not so sharp, we have seen a similar trend in the field of foreign investment in national strategic companies for the last couple of years. Governments have become more attentive to businesses that can influence national security policies, and have begun to selectively assess foreign investors in such companies.

The session participants will discuss the issues of coordination and structuring of transactions with the participation of strategic companies, requirements for foreign investors and the specifics of interaction with national regulators.

This session will be of interest to foreign investors planning to invest in Russian business (including in the framework of global mergers), as well as Russian companies doing business in Europe.

Topics to be discussed:
• Russian regulator’s views on foreign investments
• Structuring transactions with the element of national security
• GR (government relations) aspects in regulatory approval process
• Investments in European strategic companies: what Russian businesses should know in advance

This session will be held in English.
