A recent decision from a US appellate court may change the way that non-US companies view the sale of their securities in the US. That case, Stoyas v. Toshiba Corp., found that a foreign issuer could be liable under US securities laws for a sale of its securities in the US, even if the company was not involved in the sale. This creates real risk for publicly-traded, non-US companies.
In the full white paper, we discuss:
- The recent decision in Toshiba and the circumstances under which US courts have decided that a foreign issuer can be held liable for transactions in its securities under US securities laws.
- Practical steps foreign issuers can take to mitigate exposure risk to US securities laws.
