Orrick Lawyers Publish Article on Prohibition of Chinese Investors' Acquisition of Aixtron's U.S. Operations

The M&A Lawyer | February.01.2017

Harry Clark and W. Clark McFadden II of Orrick’s International Trade & Compliance team co-authored an article on the prohibition of the planned acquisition by China's Fujian Grand Chip Investment Fund LP of the U.S. operations of German technology company Aixtron SE. The acquisition was set to be part of Fujian Grand Chip’s overall acquisition of Aixtron, but was halted due to findings of national security concerns relating to Aixtron's U.S. operations. The article, which was originally published as an International Trade & Compliance Alert, appeared in the January 2017 issue of The M&A Lawyer.
