Special Security Agreement

A proxy advice is a requirement imposed as part of a proxy agreement by the U.S. Department of Defense`s Defense Security Service for foreign investors who wish to acquire certain U.S. companies. This is for national security reasons and is especially the case for defence companies that participate in top secret contracts. The proxy agreement exists between the foreign company, the U.S. subsidiary that holds classified contracts, and the DSS. A variant is a Special Security Agreement (SSA) in which the company`s board of directors may be composed of both U.S. citizens and nationals of the parent company`s country. In this case, when national security issues are discussed, only U.S. leaders can participate. THE SSA requires that businesses be run by U.S. law and by U.S. citizens.
