Doing the Delaware Flip: Why and how do non-US companiesโ€ฆ

A non-US company may choose to form new Delaware holding company structures for several reasons, including:

  • The United States remains the principal source of venture capital and other private financing.

  • Some of the worldโ€™s premiere stock markets are located in the United States and an initial public offering (IPO) and stock exchange listing on NYSE or NASDAQ can lead to better access to capital and offer a potential path to liquidity.

  • A trade sale to a US acquirer is often seen as an ideal potential โ€œexitโ€ and re-incorporating in the US can help facilitate a sale.

  • Sales of products by US companies to US or non-US companies are easier than by non-US companies.
