Welcome to the only roundtable podcast in compliance. Today, we have a quartet of Jay Rosen, Matt Kelly, Sarah Hadden and Mike Volkov. We focus on the President Trump’s putative initiative to purchase the country of Greenland. We consider the proposed purchase from the compliance perspective. Rants and shouts outs follow the commentary for this episode.

1. Mike Volkov considers the proposed purchase through the lens of Mergers and Acquisitions under the FCPA. He also highlights the 2018 amendment to the FCPA Corporate Enforcement Policy on safe harbor in M&A under the FCPA. Volkov is not sure if he is shouting out to the Business Roundtable for their Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation or ranting about the Business Roundtable’s ‘profound grasp of the obvious” in releasing the Statement.

2. Jay Rosen follows up on Mike’s FCPA analysis in considering how someone might look at the sale in assessing the culture of Greenland and how it would fit into the acquirer’s portfolio of purchased territories. Rosen shouts out for America to ‘get Spicy’ as former White House Press Secretary (when there was such a position) Sean Spicer joins Dancing with the Stars.

3. Sarah Hadden considers how a journalist might cover the proposed purchase. She also weighs in as the Publisher of Corporate Compliance Insights on the types of compliance related stories she sees from the proposed purchase. Hadden shouts out for unplugging.

4. Matt Kelly considers the proposed purchase from the internal controls and SEC reporting perspective. Kelly comes in hot to blast the Business Roundtable over its Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation. See less -
