Undersea Cable - US asset?
Hi -I am looking at a transaction where the target owns an undersea telecom cable which goes from Europe to NYC. I didn't see anything in the interpretations that sheds any light on (a) whether that could be considered a US asset or not and (b) if it is a US asset, how much of the cable would be deemed to be a US asset. It seems to me that the cable should not be a US asset because it is not actually in the US, being that it is in the ocean, but that the terminus in NYC, which is on land, would constitute a US asset. I would be grateful for your thoughts.
