Mayer Brown Legal Update
Offshore insurance companies can provide substantial tax benefits to their owner-insureds through current deductions for the insurance premium and, if properly structured, deferral on reserve investments. In 2003, the Internal Revenue Service (the IRS) warned that it would scrutinize “purported” insurance companies organized offshore that invest in hedge funds or hedge fund-style assets.

Mayer Brown Legal Update
This Legal Update focuses on three issues that should be considered by Audit Committees of public companies in 2015: (i) Internal Investigation Privilege and Confidentiality, (ii) Expanding PCAOB-Mandated Rules for Audit Committees, and (iii) Continued ISS Corporate Governance Scrutiny of Audit Committee Members. These considerations are important even for companies that may not consider themselves subject to “public company-type” corporate governance requirements: for example, US private companies considering an initial public offering or foreign private issuers considering accessing the US capital markets and having their securities listed on an exchange.

Mayer Brown’s Supply Chain Finance Primer explores one of the more common types of supply chain finance programs (an “SCF Program”) in which a third-party financier (often a bank) (a “Buyer”) provides liquidity to suppliers by leveraging their buyer’s higher credit rating—an arrangement that typically involves the use of a technology platform to automate transactions and provide visibility into the invoice approval status to all parties involved.
