New investment screening regime in Denmark

New Investment Screening Regime in Denmark

AmCham Denmark, in partnership with the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI) and Kromann Reumert, is pleased to invite members to our seminar on the upcoming investment screening regime in Denmark.

On May 4th, the Danish Parliament passed a bill that introduces a cross-sectoral screening regime of foreign direct investments (FDIs). The Danish FDI Act will enter into force on 1 July 2021. The FDI screening regime addresses foreign investments in Danish companies, including mergers, acquisitions, minority investments, capital contributions, or other transactions. Thus, the regulation will have a significant impact on many Danish businesses, in particular those operating in “critical sectors” as well as foreign investors.

Our seminar offers an introduction to the new FDI screening regime, its practical implications for Danish businesses and foreign investors, and information about experience from similar regimes abroad.
