Presidential Order — Regarding the Proposed Acquisition of a Controlling Interest in Aixtron SE by Grand Chip Investment GMBH

Citing a threat to national security, this executive order (posted December 2, 2016) prohibits the acquisition of controlling interest in the American company Aixtron by Grand Chip Investment, a Germany subsidiary of Chinese companies.

Although I do not know about this set of companies other than what is stated in this order, I suspect their products and/or services are or could be involved in some way with electronic surveillance or spying.
