A combination with a foreign target can, under certain circumstances, give rise to an opportunity for a US company to effectively adopt the target’s country of domicile as its own. Effecting such a change in domicile can be desirable for a variety of reasons, but such transactions are attended by numerous complexities and pitfalls. It is imperative that companies considering such a transaction carefully assess relevant structuring, securities law, tax and other issues.
Please join Mayer Brown partners Reb Wheeler and Jason Bazar for a 30-minute teleconference on key issues associated with transactions involving a change in a US company’s corporate domicile. Reb and Jason will be joined by Cian McCourt, a partner at Ireland-based A&L Goodbody, who will discuss recent corporate migrations to Ireland and related legal considerations. Topics will include:
- Overview of recent corporate migrations
- Commonly used M&A structures
- Tax considerations, including anti-inversion rules
- Securities law considerations
- Considerations associated with migrations to Ireland
