Going Private and Going Dark: Considerations for U.S. Publicly Traded Chinese Companies
Dorsey & Whitney LLP and the Chinese Business Lawyers Association cordially invite you to a seminar on U.S. publicly traded Chinese companies that have considered going private or going dark. In light of the challenges many U.S. publicly traded Chinese companies face under the current regulatory and market conditions, an increasing number of Chinese companies are considering leaving the U.S. reporting system by going private or going dark. Going private and going dark are complex processes that involve many business, legal and accounting issues. Restructuring those companies after the completion of a going private transaction also involves tax and corporate issues that require careful planning. An expert panel consisting of senior investment bankers, lawyers and accountants with real case experience will discuss the topic with the audience. Please see the details below and register by November 9, 2012 if you would like to attend.
